Perfect for a First Look and Family Reunion
"This home is an absolute gem! We stayed here for two very important events. We needed a beautiful setting for our Get Ready location and First Look before our wedding, and we needed a relaxing, spacious setting for a reunion of family members that hadn't seen each other is several years. The home was comfortable, clean, and well stocked. The bedrooms are decorated in cheerful themes, which were perfect for wedding day pics and video. The location is right on the river and away from the main road, but close to coffee and other shops and activities. The home was friendly for our seniors as the main level has a bedroom and bathroom, the porch is large (small steps up), and most of the yard around the home is walkable with a walker/limited ability. My family enjoyed fishing, the fire pit, the playground, and sitting on the porch relaxing. We felt like we were on vacation, but had all the comforts of home. Everyone wants to return! Thank you for allowing us to share your home, for it will always hold a very special place in our memories and hearts!"

"We had the pleasure of renting the cottage over Memorial Day weekend while in town for a baseball tournament. Twelve of us between the ages of 10 and 74 all fit comfortably and the cottage was so much better than a hotel. It had everything we needed and the view from the porch is fantastic. It's not fancy, but it was perfect!"

"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."
