Guestbook comments from the owner
We just got back from spending a lovely week at Ennis Cottage. This was our first beach vacation with our 9 month old daughter and it was the perfect situation. The cottage was very clean and tidy; the kitchen had everything we needed and we loved spending time in our little private backyard with the grill! The beach was very easily accessed and it was lovely to meet all their wonderful neighbors. We enjoyed several of the local restaurants, especially the Tuesday night 2 for 1 lobster dinner at Lenny's Lobster Shack...not to be missed! Overall we had a lovely time and Ron and Bernadette were extremely cordial! Thanks so much!

Retired professor and wife enjoying his grandkids, travel and being at the beach.

Ron Hekeler purchased this cottage in 1971

We bought in Branford because it was one half hour from our home, had a lovely beach and nice neighbors. We can go into New Haven to the theater, art galleries. Not far from the casinos and all our kids.

Love clamming, sailing on the Terviseks, swimming. Branford has many excellent restaurants, from really classy to outside patio dining in a marina. The center has a town green which has many activities through the summer, plus interestng shops and stores. We are a half hour ride to the outlet shops. And it is quiet.

MEMORIAL DAY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful getaway!
My wife and I needed to escape from the city and that's just what we got!
Bernie & Ron were a pleasure to talk to, and they keep their cottage in amazing shape! Everything you need is there and if you forget something the town is so close by its no worry. They are right across the street from the LI sound and the view from the beach is spectacular. We had wonderful dinners out and really had a chance to explore the area. They do provide a grill in the backyard I you choose to stay in and dine.
Again, everything was perfect and we look forward to returning in the future.

CUTE COTTAGE WITH A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to spend a Fall weekend in the area and we were able to book this wonderful cottage at the last minute. The owner was very accommodating and flexible and the cottage was immaculate, comfortable, and cozy for the two of us. It is nestled in a little enclave behind the owner's house. The cottage is completely set up for all your needs -- kitchen items, movies, beach chairs, binders with restaurant and activities in the area. There is a backyard for lounging in, and the beach is down the driveway and just across the street, with a lovely view of an island. Ron was very helpful and friendly and clearly keeps his cottage in tip-top shape. The area has much to enjoy, between New Haven, the coastal towns, and wonderful state parks. We were very happy that we found this place and would not hesitate to come back or recommend it to others.

RELAXED AND REJUVENATED

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just got home and looked at each other said that was the greatest week!! Very relaxing and rejuvenating. The Ennis is all that has been written and more extremely comfortable. The area is very pretty we walked every morning and spent a great deal of time on the beach. Did I mention the restaurants you will not be disappointed we recommend that you hit Lenny's on Tuesdays for the Lobster special and make sure you stop by Bud's for the freshest fish, steamers, and shrimp. Ron and Bernie thank you for everything!!

WONDERFUL STAY IN A GREAT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Ennis Cottage was perfect, we could not have wished for nicer accommodation. Ron and Bernie were very welcoming and the cottage had everything we needed for our stay. We have a ten month old baby and they very helpfully lent us a highchair which made things much easier. We were also able to borrow toys for the beach which our baby had a wonderful time playing with. The private back garden with garden furniture was lovely to relax in at the end of a busy day. The location of the property is excellent with many attractions within an hours drive – more than we could possibly have visited within one week. There is a very helpful welcome book which includes everything to do in the surrounding area, which saved us hours searching for things to do. We could happily have spent the week on the private beach using the row boat! Oh, and the bed was super comfy!!

Perfect for a visit with relatives in the area. Cottage is cozy and has all one could want for the week. Convenient location for catching the train to New York City, taking advantage of the beach or exploring the shoreline area and New Haven/Yale. Thank you Ron & Bernie. I won't hesitate to rent for my next trip back home.
