A GREAT VALUE FOR THE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house! I stayed here in August. We were lucky and had beautiful and the weather the whole time. Not only is the house beautiful, it is comfortable too. I always felt at ease in the house. When we gathered for meals, it was a wonderful experience to gather around the dining room table with everyone. No one ever felt cramped and the dining room is so elegant you feel like you are a guest at a special dinner party just for you. The kitchen is spacious and roomy and a great kitchen to cook in. Everything you need to cook with is there and nothing is lacking. People can hang out in the kitchen while you cook and there’s still plenty of room. One of the people in our group plays the piano and often played the baby grand piano while we were having our cocktails. Of course it helps if your friend is a wonderful pianist! Even though it is a 1920’s era home, because it is so beautiful and comfortable, it can make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time when the house was first built and everyone is living the high life. Even with up to 12 people in the house it so comfortable. Some people can be in the kitchen, or some in the library or the music room gathered around the piano. If people are in the TV room watching TV or a movie, it doesn’t disturb people anywhere else. The grounds are lovely and provide a pretty spectacular view when you are in the rooms that look out on it, especially the dining room or the deck where we all hung out a lot. And one of the really great features of this house is the bedroom on the first floor that has a full bath so grandma doesn’t have to climb stairs to get to her room. I would highly recommend choosing this house. It is really special, and an incredible value for the price, compared to the cost of other houses in the same area.

WHAT A CHARMER!!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful old CT home with lots of charm and character. We had 8 people staying with plenty of room to spare. Very centrally located to all attractions, from 5 min to 1 hr away. We especially enjoyed our relaxing quiet evenings on the deck, discussing our adventures of the day. A beautiful serene setting! A kitchen to die for. (If you like to cook but, that is MY niche) The owner is such a wonderful person and was very helpful directing us to the many attractions. Very close to RI which also afforded us the opportunity to see the sites in Newport. If you want a home that's peaceful with a lot of charm, this is it. Don't miss out on this one! We're already planning on returning again next year. WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE!

Fabulous Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this lovely home hosting a play-prov retreat with 12 actor/writers. This home is beautifully maintained, very clean and well stocked with all necessities. The kitchen is gorgeous and contains plenty of cookware, utensils and dishes so that meals can be varied and easily cooked, and yet it is minutes away from some lovely and interesting restaurants for evenings out. The layout of the rooms is brilliant, plenty of space for everyone to congregate together and still enough nooks and crannys for folks to spend time creating on their own. We particularly enjoyed the long dining room table where, when our main work was done, we could all congregate over meals and conversation. I particularly liked the accessibility of our host who was available to answer questions (how does one start the grill, e.g.!) but was never in the way or around when not needed. The closeness to the ocean and other points of interest on the coast is a huge plus. We will bring this retreat back to this home again in 2014. I was so delighted with my visit here that I am bringing my children and grandchildren for a family vacation this summer.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect spot to vacation or gather the family for a special event! This was our second Christmas at this lovely Stonington home and not our last. This home is spacious and well appointed yet retains a cozy appeal. The amenities were just as promised. The owner's attention to detail is superb. The location is quiet yet very convenient. We especially appreciated that the grocery store was close by. Our little ones begged to go out for a hike "to look for deer" and the grown-ups that walked them around the property had a grand time. Memories have been made here.

A Roomy, Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this house for a week with our three elementary-school-aged children. This was the perfect house for us! It had lots of rooms for the kids to spread out and do separate activities. There were games and toys for the children to use when they got tired of the ones they had brought. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes so that we had no trouble cooking everything we wanted. The big yard was an excellent place for our kids to run around and use up their energy. The house was charmingly decorated to bring out the 19th-century feel of the place. The location was great for us, on a beautiful wooded lot but within an easy drive of downtown Mystic and I-95.
