Columbus Day weekend we were going to meet up with relatives from Pennsylvania for a family reunion in CT. We planned to leave early Saturday morning for an exciting 2 days. Friday night at 7 pm we received a call that they had accidentally rented the home to someone else. Scrambling at the last minute to find a place was so upsetting with limited availability on a long weekend! I can not give enough praise to the owner, Donna on so many levels! Not only did she agree to rent her home at the last minute but she had a huge dinner party she was entertaining on Friday night when she got the call. After I spoke to her early Saturday morning I immediately felt at ease and felt like I had just spoken to a friend. She not only was extremely kind and accomodating but when we arrived she had chocolate chip cookies right from the oven for us. Her home was clean, warm, very spacious, & beautiful. The pictures are really nice but can not depict how beautiful her home really is. Everyone had a great weekend! After our trip Donna found a pair of mens shoes in one of the bedrooms & a hearing aide on the outside deck. She went above and beyond to ship them to my Uncle in Pennsylvania. I really can't say enough about this lovely lady! Our stay here was WONDERFUL and we will definitely rent here again. Thank you Donna! :)
We rented this house for 5 days during the CGA Graduation! It was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed giving people tours of the house. It was chilly some of the nights so we lit 2 of the fireplaces which only added to the house's charm! Plenty of space for everyone!
The owner is a wonderful woman , you couldn't ask for a better host!
It was great location near Ocean Beach Park, and an easy drive to the Academy.
This property books up fast, we secured it over 1 year in advance, so if you are interested, you will want to reserve early!
Thank you Donna, for making our son's graduation a memorable and pleasant one!
We gathered here to celebrate Easter as well as my mom's birthday. The house was wonderful and fit all of our expectations. Donna was especially nice and found my wedding band for me and promptly returned it to me!
Thanks Donna, and the Smith family will have to do this again!
I can't say enough about this house and the owner. This house was beautiful and the owner was great. My family and I stay here for my daughter's graduation. There was 8 of us and had plenty of room
We couldn't find a better place. My daughter has since moved from there but I hope to return there for a weekend getaway.

We stayed at this home recently for a quick weekend off -season. I cannot say enough how comfortable and welcoming this place is! It is a beautifully restored Arts and Crafts "cottage by the sea" and a great escape for ANY reason and ANY season. We will definitely go back!
My husband, three children, and 7 other relatives stayed at this Grand Home. Although large, the home feels warm, cozy, and intimate due to the owner's eye for color and decorating. We enjoyed taking runs along the shore, knitting and chatting by the fireplaces, and catching up with dear family members. This is a fantastic property for families. The owner has a room full of legos, board games, and tv. The back porch is set up perfectly for relaxing or grilling. The location was very convenient to downtown New London and to our relatives' home in Mystic. The owner is one of the most service oriented that we have rented from, providing special touches such as plates of cookies, juice and cream in the fridge, and English muffins. The master bedroom is perfect for a family with young children and accommodated my brother-in-laws family perfectly. The three children under 6 sleep on a pull out futon and double bed next to their parents provided by the owner. The home is near the beach which attracts some car traffic at night. Light sleepers or those used to complete silence may wish to bring a sound machine or ear plugs. The beds were amazingly comfortable and we were provided with plenty of warm blankets and towels. We'll definitely be back to this gem by the sea.
