Our 10 day stay at the "River House" was exceptional! We came to Connecticut from Calgary Alberta, Canada, over 2500 miles away!!! Our son, wife & 2 boys, 9 & 6 , our niece, hubby & I stayed at the house for our visit for our daughter's wedding. The house is only a few minutes from St. Clement's Castle where the reception was held. Although we were quite busy with last minute wedding preparations, we managed to take in a few attractions. The boys went to a NY Yankees & Boston Red Sox game in Boston. They also visited the Barker Character, Comic & Cartoon Museum & the Comic Book Store in Cheshire. My son and husband took in the New England Air Museum.
This spacious house was a fantastic place for us to be all together at and a very comfortable "home away from home". The boys were able to explore the surroundings including the beach & were not restrained the way they would have been had we stayed at a hotel. They were awed with the resident praying mantis. The house is very well equipped with a large fridge with ice-maker, dishwasher and the washer and dryer came in handy. Being somewhat coffee snobs, my son and I were especially pleased to find a coffee grinder as I had brought a pound of coffee beans from home.!! The 2 sinked bathrooms were a big plus and the beds were comfortable!! We had several family dinners in the dinning room.
Our daughter and her wedding party came to the house to get ready for the wedding. The hairdresser and make-up artist were there at the same time and were able to set up their work station in separate spaces.
We really really enjoyed the huge deck, the stunning views of the river, the morning fog over the river, the fire pit, and even the outside television especially on our last day where we had a gathering of a few relatives who hadn't left for home yet. Also of note is the quiet, the privacy and distance away from the main road this property provides.
We were surprised at how trusting and easy going Dean the owner was. He came to see us the first morning we were there to give us a quick overview of the house and one other time when he was taking his boat out for a spin.
I am so thankful our daughter suggested this VBRO property. Staying in this house has made our stay in East Hampton a super positive experieince and has gone a long way in making a wonderful happy event in our family a precious memory! We would recommend the "River House" without hesitation! We wanted for nothing!
Thanks again Dean,
The Huck family
