neil orkney purchased this cottage in 2007

Why neil orkney chose Stonington


What makes this cottage unique

Fifty feet from the water with a wrap around balcony off the master bedroom and main rooms afford the opportunity for watching the water traffic and waterfowl. Sunrise and sunsets are very special. Eastern views as well as southern views give this home a great panorama.

[from the guest book] Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful cottage! This weekend has been absolutely perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything better to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!! We loved walking around town and going into a few great restaurants and shops. This will definitely be a weekend to remember and hopefully we can celebrate every anniversary right here!

A wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for a three day getaway from NYC. We had a wonderful relaxing time. The nearby towns of Westerly and Stonington are beautiful bastions of New England charm.It is not as crowded and expensive as many destinations around NYC tend to be. No strip malls, fast food or 'Big Box" shopping centers. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well appointed. There are plenty of nearby activities however the property is so pleasant it is tempting just to stay in and relax.

Perfect Spot to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

My week stay was so much fun. The home was neat, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for day trips to Mystic, New London, Groton and Westerly,RI.

Everywhere I went, I met the nicest people. A nearby restaurant called the Whistle Stop was run by the nicest Greek couple. Their food was fresh, tasty, and reasonable in price.

The bed at this home was SO comfortable. On more than one occasion I skipped my trip for the day to watch a movie in bed and doze.

I enjoyed sitting on the porch after supper to watch the boats return to the nearby marina.

Staying here was so relaxing.

I would recommend this home to anyone who just needs a refreshing change from their daily routines. I hope to return again one day.

Perfect Vacation Week!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage could not be more perfect for a wonderful quiet get-away. A special bonus was being able to bring our two Scottish Terriers. I cannot stress the attention to detail and amenities. I felt as though we were staying in a private resort.

A little piece of paradise in coastal New England

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage the last week in May 2013, as part of a trip we were making through New England. The listing is pretty much as described. Clean and very well maintained we had about as perfect a week as we could have expected. The cottage is so very well equipped to make you feel at home. The property is perfect for a couple, in a setting that cannot be beat, with a lovely deck overlooking the river which separates CT from Rhode Island. I spoke with the owner about updating some of the photos since there have been some changes and he plans to do so. I don't think you could find a more perfect spot for your "getaway". An easy drive into Westerly where you will find ample restaurants and shops; close to the Rhode Island beaches, which are on their way to recovery after last fall's hurricane. An easy drive to Mystic, Newport and even Providence, which is a wonderful city with lots to do and see. I would highly recommend Neil's cottage - we plan to return later this fall or early next spring. Give this property a try, you will not go wrong. Enjoy!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Pretty-much everything that the other reviewers said. The place is really nice. We can't imagine anyone being disappointed in it. I also noticed the "man stuff" like the quality custom carpentry, fire safety sprinklers, and automatic generator.

We "settled" for this place (wanted to go to a different area like NYC) since the owner was 1 of only 2 VRBO owners who responded to 6 property inquiries, and his responses were speedy and friendly.

A wonderful cottage for the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage has everything you need to relax and spoil yourself. The owners have taken the time to make you feel welcome as soon as you enter. The cheerful decor and comfortable furniture make you feel right at home. The cottage was very clean and there was an abundance of information for guests such as area attractions and places to eat. The kitchen is fully equipped, so you have a choice of going out to eat or cooking your own meals.

The best part of this location is obviously the water views. We sat on the deck often and listened to gulls and geese and watched swans move beautifully across the water.

We recommend this cottage to all who need a little time to "recharge their batteries".
