Beautiful, peaceful spot for our family

Stayed: June 2011
We are in the midst of an amazing stay in this beautiful home. Filled with character and history, and offering beautiful furniture and all the comforts of home, this has been the perfect spot for us to relax and unwind from a busy life of work and school.
Some days, we walk or ride to the village of Noank to play on the playground, enjoy a lobster roll or an ice cream, and grab a few groceries and a bottle of wine. Some days we wander over towards Esker Point and Groton Long Point, for a seaside lunch or dinner at one of several restaurants, or a little beach time. The house is a short drive to all that Mystic has to offer, and also close to the great nightlife offered at the casinos, some lovely farmers markets, and several pick-your-own farms, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area - but truthfully, we spend most of our time in the huge yard: grilling, lounging on chaises and reading, playing under the sprinkler, and enjoying the peonies and the wildlife that wander through from time to time. Fresh berries every morning and s'mores every night, our children will remember this summer forever. What a gift.
Thanks so much for sharing this special place with us :)
We hope to be back in the fall for a weekend of pumpkin and apple picking!
