We stayed in the cottage for a three day getaway from NYC. We had a wonderful relaxing time. The nearby towns of Westerly and Stonington are beautiful bastions of New England charm.It is not as crowded and expensive as many destinations around NYC tend to be. No strip malls, fast food or 'Big Box" shopping centers. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well appointed. There are plenty of nearby activities however the property is so pleasant it is tempting just to stay in and relax.
