Home away from Home
Submitted: July 2, 2010
Stayed: June 2010
My family of five stayed in this historic charmer for Reporting-In Day at the Coast Guard Academy. This would be the last time we could be together as a family for a very long time. So, I searched the internet for days and days trying to find the perfect place for us to stay for this momentous, but stressful occasion. After tedious scrutiny I decided on Carolyn's home in Stonington. I had very high expectations for our "home away from home" and this house met them all, and exceeded! From the charming bay window overlooking the quaint historic shops and tea room, to the beautiful wood floors throughout, to the calming sea breezes, to the SPACIOUS living areas, and the water views, we had to force ourselves to leave the house each day and explore our son's new stomping grounds. And, after meeting Carolyn, who is always just downstairs in her fabulous shop if you need restaurant suggestions or directions, or anything at all, I felt like we'd been friends for years! Clean, comfy, well appointed (that kitchen has EVERYTHING!) and wi-fi to boot! I recommend this home with earnest, and to quote my youngest (15-year-old son) upon packing up to leave, “I hate to leave this house; it feels like home.” Thank you, Carolyn, for providing a place where my family could share this very special time together.
