WATERFRONT, DOCK, ON RIVER ACROSS FROM NATURE PRESERVE

Waterford House Rental Photos and Description

2 baths, sleeps 6

Reserve early and save for Labor Day 2010 week

This is a well-appointed, two-story guest house on an upscale, shore front property overlooking the Niantic River. It has a direct waterfront and dock. The water is a navigable two miles to Long Island Sound.

The first floor consists of a master bedroom suite, full bath, and a laundry room. The living-dining-sleeping areas are located on the open-plan second floor, affording a wide-angle view of the river and across the river to the Oswegatchie Hills Nature preserve, which, according to The Day of New London is 'one of the most beautiful stretches of nature one can find anywhere.' (The Day, Nov. 23, 2005, Page A6)

You will have access to several large decks that descend to the waterfront, including a huge, private deck right off the second floor, for your exclusive use.

This is a home, not a summer cottage. All appliances, climate control systems (including central air conditioning), bathroom and kitchen fixtures are new and of first quality. There are two TVs, DirecTV premium movie channels, DVD player, telephones with unlimited domestic long distance, and wireless, high-speed internet access.

The location, a two-minute ride from Rte. 95, is convenient to shopping, fine dining, the casinos, and Mystic.

BEAUTIFUL AND CENTRAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This guest house is right on the Niantic River with gorgeous views. I truly enjoyed the month I spent here even though the weather was not warm enough to take advantage of the river. The house is very well equipped and well furnished.
The location is private but central; supermarket, shops and restaurants are only a few-minute drive away.
I will definitely come back when I am in the eastern CT area. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Butler's guest house very much. They were most gracious hosts, very accommodating to our needs. The house is very clean and well-equipped, and the setting is beautiful, tranquil and relaxing..

PERFECT FOR VISITING RELATIVES IN CT

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Butlers for 10 days in September when visiting my brother who lives n Colchester. The house was fantastic, settings are gorgeous, private and very clean, situated just 5 mins from the I95 so very easy to get around CT.

The Butlers were very friendly and accommodating and were in constant communication before we traveled as we were worried about the power outages and offered us alternative solutions if we wanted to change our flights.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone staying in CT and my family and I will definitely be booking again for next year.

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this lovely cottage from 7/10/11-7/14/11. We needed to be in the area because we were attending several productions at the O'Neill Theater (a fantastic experience!). The location was perfect for us because it was close to the O'Neill Theater, and to beautiful beaches and parks. The home itself is comfortable with every amenity provided. The multi-level back decks provide a quiet private outdoor space and look out at a spectacular view of the Niantic River. The decks are situated among old leafy trees and so you feel you are truly alone in the woods. The hosts were warm, friendly and very professional. They were available to respond to any and all requests. We would highly recommend this rental and would stay there again if we are in the area.

My wife and I stayed here for one week in July. The place was comfortable and had a nice view. Our hosts were helpful and pleasant. My brother brought his boat up to the dock and we had lots of fun going on the Niantic River and out into the sound.

The Oswagatchie property is beautiful with a multi-tiered deck leading to the Niantic River (a tidal river). I enjoyed all the amenities of home in a well-kept, pretty little house. I immediately felt comfortable and happy and will be sure to book early when I return, which I plan to do.
