About Mary and Melissa

Two sisters inherited this property in 2008 from our dear dad, a builder who constructed it himself from the foundation up in 1954. The house was renovated and refurnished in 2007-8, but we kept some of the loving touches Dad built in, like the vintage main bath and the knotty pine kitchen cabinetry. We spent our own childhoods in this neighborhood and on this beach, and we hope your family makes memories here as fond as ours. As dog lovers ourselves, we welcome well-cared for, well-behaved pets (per our pet agreement) - they'll enjoy their time here too!

Mary and Melissa purchased this house in 2008

Why Mary and Melissa chose Clinton

Beach and marsh views, a variety of birds and wildlife, and good neighbors.

What makes this house unique

A hilltop setting with plenty of privacy and room to play sets this property apart from most beach cottages in the local area, which are crowded together on tiny lots down near sea level. The house has a large front yard and parking well off the street for 3 cars with room to spare. Beach access is deeded and shared only with our longtime neighbors, offering an exceptional degree of privacy.

Restful beachside vacation

  • 4 of 5
The rental house , set just up the hill and a short walk from the beach access, is clean, quiet and filled with all the amenities needed for a good family vacation: kitchenware, wifi, two beds rooms (one with two beds) and a pullout couch, washer-dryer, TVs, BBQ grill, bikes, beach chairs, kayaks and beach umbrella, not to mention games and books. Just add food and people. Meg, the propoerty overseer, came by several times to tend to the nice garden (yielding tomoatoes and cukes for our consumption) and could not have been nicer. The beach and its cove are beautiful and peaceful. There are local shops, supermarkets, restaurants and tourist sites, even two outlet malls. A real find.

Gorgeous Beach!

  • 3 of 5
Gorgeous beach. Great fire pit. Kayaks are splendid. Nice neighbors. Cleanest place we've ever rented, although dated. Misleading that home has 3 bedrooms (den w TV has pullout sofa) and that home is air-conditioned (one window unit in master bedroom). Toilet in full bathroom is loose.

Owner's Response: Thanks for all your comments, Beth. We prefer to think of Two Sisters as "retro" :-). As our guests can infer from reading our listing, we quite intentionally preserve its original character. That being said, this winter we're going to replace the tired kitchen floor, and it may be time we replace the old pink Standard in the full bath...Regarding the AC, the unit in the MBR is powerful enough to cool the whole house on an average CT summer day - but this year must be hotter than average, because this is the second comment we've had about it this summer. And we thought last summer was hot! Will definitely look into augmenting that for next summer. As for the 3rd BR/den, that's exactly how it's described and pictured; it does have a full closet and doors that close for complete privacy. But we do intend to replace the pull-out sofa bed with something more functional for our longer-term guests' sleeping comfort. Again thanks for your comments. All the best!

Last minute vacation

  • 4 of 5
We decided last minute to book our vacation. Not having ever rented on the CT Shore we were skeptical as to what to expect. First, I have to say Melissa, the home owner, was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. She took the time to answer all questions very quickly.

The house was very nice. It had everything that we needed in a very private, quiet community. The owners made sure there was everything in the house needed to make your stay comfortable, including food items, ample linens and little things like foil and sandwich bags. The access to the beach was directly across the street and we literally felt as if we had a beach to ourselves during our entire visit. My 2 year old daughter was able to run around and enjoy the beach without annoying any other people. Though we didn't use all of the amenities the owners also provided kayaks, row boat, chairs, beach toys, etc. The shore line was a bit rocky, but we didn't know what to expect as being the first visit to the CT shore.

The area was quiet as it is a very small town. However, within a drive there was shopping, Mystic, New London and other things to do. We were there to relax and just enjoy our time on the beach....which certainly served its purpose.

Our one and only critique was the air conditioning. Yes, the air conditioning in the bedroom was great. It cooled the room down immediately and worked great. The air also helped keep the second bedroom cool. However, the air conditioner didn't cool the entire house. The temperature during our stay wasn't too hot however, we like to have it nice and cool in the house when we get in. I would suggest an air conditioner in the main living room. It would make a big difference in the house to keep the far end of the house cool as well. Again, it is a small critique and for many it probably wouldn't be anything, but I thought it was important to note.

All in all, it was a very nice vacation with a very nice rental. We would certainly recommend this rental to others.

A real Gem in a lovely peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
This home was even nicer than described. It has a lovely feel to it - by that I mean, you just relax. Everything needed for a break is provided; boats, buckets, picnic baskets - you name it.
The house is very clean and cosy - and retains all the character that lends to the restful atmosphere. There is an ample supply of linens, towels and you name it! - and the beach is just a stroll across the road down a private path. It is nicely private and you can leave beach things there for the next day.
Communications with the owners was spot-on and very responsive. Any questions we had were promptly answered.
A perfect location for a restful break and family get together. Lots of useful places and nice seaside towns and oldie-worldy places to visit nearby.
We would definitely recommend this property and hope to get back again next year.

Just a fantastic stay and we were very impressed. Only regrets was the yard man failed to maintain the back and leaves were every where which made me feel badly for the owners.
The pink toilet is a challenge but workable and other than kudo's to the owners for a great home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Frank, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! As for the pink toilet, the old girl will be getting a much needed organ transplant this winter; she does require a bit of maintenance but especially after working overtime this year! :-) Also thanks for the comment about the leaves - we'll follow up on that. By the time we got here they were covered by 4 inches of snow, so we appreciate your letting us know! Best, Mary & Melissa

  • 4 of 5
We had a nice time in this lovely home. It was clean, well equipped and had a beautiful surroundings.
It fit perfectly with our needs, namely to have an extended family gathering at a pleasant location.
The owners were easy to communicate with and they provided us with all the necessary information to enjoy our stay.
That's what we did. Thank you.

I would recommend this vacation rental without hesitation.
