  • Perfect!

    "We are a multi generational ladies group that gets together for one weekend per year. The house was comfortable and spacious. Most important, very clean. A lovely woodsey area of Newtown. Highly recommend, you won't be sorry."

  • Wonderful gem!

    "We stayed at this cottage for bringing our daughter to college and then for some vacation time. It was seriously the most well-appointed kitchen of the many, many kitchens that we have rented! The outdoor shower was fantastic for cleaning up after a day at the beach, and we ended up using it on non-beach days too, it was so nice. The backyard felt very private, although we didn't spend much time there. The front porch was a great place to read in the evenings (and the wi-fi, cable, board games, and puzzles gave the older kids something to do in the evenings as well). There were three beaches within walking distance. The closest one was two blocks away but was a bit rocky during low tide for preference of my youngest. The largest one was close to Rocky Neck State Park and was great for playing on the sand bar and for hunting crabs and shells during low tide. We appreciated the beach gear, since we had flown in and obviously couldn't bring our chairs etc. We took one day trip to Mystic and one to New London; otherwise, we were at the beach! Peter and Pat were easy to work with and very accommodating, and having a next door contact for emergencies or quick questions was great as well. We would certainly love to stay with them next time we are in the area!"

  • Another Perfect Vacation at Capt'n Rick's!!

    "This is the second summer that we have booked The Captain's Cottage. Everything about this home is fantastic for a relaxing vacation. It's much more preferable than Cape Cod or Rhode Island....much less crowded and far more relaxed. Very close to attractions in Mystic: the aquarium, seaport and boat/fishing excursions. The Ct River area also has lots to offer. Restaurants are close by and serve terrific food. But, the reason we keep coming back is that this is the perfect vacation house for a large group of people of varying ages. The beach is absolutely beautiful. It is extremely well-groomed. It is not crowded. The beach is very delightful for the youngest vacationers and their parents. Gentle water to wade/in and a small rock wall to explore. Older kids will enjoy swimming to the dock. Importantly, the beach is only steps away from the house. The house is extremely spacious. It's nice to have space to be alone on vacation. The front porch has lots of room for entertaining. My brothers and sisters as well as their kids and my parents always make it down here for a day or two. The house has been upgraded nicely since our last stay in 2014. New appliances, new grill and new TVs. Lots of ocean air and sunshine! When I asked my kids and my sister's family where they wanted to go for vacation this year, everyone answered: "Captain Ricks!!" I love it here! I'm seriously thinking of retiring in the area. In the meantime, we'll be vacationing at the most comfortable house on the CT shoreline as often as we can. Thank you, Rick, for your great hospitality as well as another great vacation."

  • Cute cottage with friendly neighbors.

    "Very convenient place to stay when visiting family. More comfortable then a hotel. I felt at home. Liked the fact that I could cook my own meals and wash clothes,etc. It was easy to call Lanna for any questions regarding the property. She was always responsive. Fun to be able to walk to the town beach and two good places to eat nearby."
