"Away from it all" is the right tag for this cottage apartment. Very peaceful. The three of us had a grand time exploring the fields and beach at the height of the autumn color. The estate is good for long walks, birdwatching, photography, and is a short drive to the stately towns of Old Lyme with its art museum and Old Saybrook, which also offers good shopping. The place is nicely equipped, the kitchen spacious, and the beds cozy. A rural Connecticut feel, all very tasteful. The owners were particularly helpful. We plan to go back in warmer weather.
