My husband and I have rented houses on Mason's Island and in Noank for ten years. Although other houses were perfectly lovely, we were absolutely over the moon at "Bowsprit"! As other reviewers have commented, pictures simply do not do this tastefully renovated, comfortable, and utterly charming house justice. Located on a point at the tip of the island, you are surrounded by water and picture-postcard views of the Mystic River, Noank, Fisher's Island, and Fisher's Island Sound. Bring your binoculars! We easily put in our canoe right from the property. The kitchen is well-equipped (a gas stove -- hooray! Especially now that Sea Well seafood has opened right on the island - we had a couple of awesomely fresh homemade seafood dinners); the air conditioning and heat are easy to work and very effective; and the outdoor shower is FANTASTIC. We can't wait to go back!
We were completely happy with the home, its location and amenities. It was clean and everything was in working order. Allison was easy to work with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. Being from the area now living in Illinois it was a perfect vacation spot to return to and visit with family & friends (who ended up surprising us with a 25th wedding anniversary party 6 months after our date so total surprise). Everything we needed was there and the size of the house was more than enough. We are a family of five with three college age kids who each brought their boy/girl friends and the sleeping arrangements were terrific with the 3 girls in the bunk room and the 3 boys in the large upstairs bedroom. We spent our time at the house and the water. Completed three jigsaw puzzles and enjoyed the fire pit nightly. We did visit our favorite local restaurants: Angie's for pizza/grinders, Steak Loft, and Sea Swirl for burgers & ice cream.
The description on the website does not do this property justice. The setting is amazing and the house exceeded our expectations. One of the nicest locations on Mason's Island, easy to get into Mystic and other places in the area
The owner was wonderful to deal with and very helpful with suggestions as to things to do, etc.
Bravo Bravo is a great restaurant in Mystic, but just cooking lobsters with all the trimmings while staying at the home, was the best.
The place is a gem with water on all sides-well equipped kitchen- super dock- fire pit and great responsive owner. Would hope return again next year
The home and property were much nicer and larger than they appeared in the pictures. Our teenage/young adult children enjoyed the local beaches, shops and just fishing/crabbing at the house. The firepit was terrific at night...right on the water's edge. Everything we all needed for a vacation was in the house, on the property or in the near vicinity. The property was clean, well-equipped, and the owner was pleasant and accomodating. The restaurants, shops, beaches, aquarium, and wineries were all in the vicinity. It was PERFECT!
It couldn't be any easier. It started with great communication with Allison, the owner. Pick your dates, send the deposit, get the key and your in. The property is just spectacular. The description doesn't do it justice. The house, the views, the friendly people. Wow!! This is a great house to rent year after year. I still can't believe I found this great vacation home. Looking forward to my stay next year.
