  • Even in the Rain...

    "My Family and I have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed this Mason's Island Home over many Sunny Columbus Day Weekends. This year we had rain instead of sun but this gracious Home still provided the cozy, comfortable space for our Family to enjoy each other's company! From the small to the tall, from the Sunday Brunch Chefs, to the Bridge players, there was a well equipped kitchen and a quiet corner to enjoy the game! Keeping up with the Baseball and Football games was also no problem with the two TVs! This Home kept us Comfortable & Cozy! Plenty of Clean, Comfortable Space to be together or to take that afternoon nap! However, even in the rain and wind, you are drawn to the ever changing vista, right outside your windows, wonderful to observe from within this sturdy Home! No, we didn't get to take our Family Walk around Mason's Island but we enjoyed a Wonderful Weekend truly enjoying each others' company!"

  • Perfect spot

    "Great house in an extremely central location. We were able to get everywhere we needed to go in a very short amount of time. House was also setup great for our crew. Plenty of sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. would definitely stay here again!"

  • 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."

  • "CHARMING" is the least I would use to is "EXTRATROIDINARY"

    "There was not one thing I needed for my stay that was not there....I love to cook and the appliances made it a pleasure...seldom do you find gas in this area...but they had it...usually I'm hesitant to use any things left by the owners, i.e. Spices and oils...but this kitchen was so well organized with everything clean and neat, that I knew it would be safe....I loved the instant hot water waiting for water to boil...the architecture of the house is truly amazing...the kitchen is gorgeous and so different. The beds were so comfortable, I thought I was at home...we are used to a king bed, so we did use the other bedroom as well.. I always pack too much, but the closet was a great size and was even able to keep our large luggage "out of the way"in the office....that was so important to me...made me feel as if I lived there ...not just on vacation... The outdoor space on both levels looked like a picture... We didn't have any questions as Charlie left printed directions for everything including the paperwork on tvs(top of the line)and appliances and recommendations on restaurants, shops etc( which having family in the area we knew and agree with as well)"
