My husband and I stayed at the blue cottage for our 1 year anniversary. The area offered so much to do in a beautiful setting. We took the boat out on the lake off the house, we bbq'd, we used the jacuzzi. We also visited the town of mystic where we shopped and ate at mystic pizza (from the movie!). On other days we also visited the local wineries and the casino. We even brought our furry kids with us (a chihauhah and a boston terrier) for the weekend and they also loved it! Bob, who owns the blue cottage has a great system for getting back to you and ensuring your every need is addressed. We plan on returning soon!
