My husband and I have rented houses on Mason's Island and in Noank for ten years. Although other houses were perfectly lovely, we were absolutely over the moon at "Bowsprit"! As other reviewers have commented, pictures simply do not do this tastefully renovated, comfortable, and utterly charming house justice. Located on a point at the tip of the island, you are surrounded by water and picture-postcard views of the Mystic River, Noank, Fisher's Island, and Fisher's Island Sound. Bring your binoculars! We easily put in our canoe right from the property. The kitchen is well-equipped (a gas stove -- hooray! Especially now that Sea Well seafood has opened right on the island - we had a couple of awesomely fresh homemade seafood dinners); the air conditioning and heat are easy to work and very effective; and the outdoor shower is FANTASTIC. We can't wait to go back!
