My wife and I live out of state. We use the house when we can and eventually plan to retire here. Our dachshund is a devoted Steelers fan

Chuck purchased this house in 1942

My grandparents built this house in 1942 when there were only a few people on the Island. They were able to get an absolutely ideal location. I have been coming here since the 1950s. We have continually updated the house and have had it professionally decorated. We don't put very much away, so our guests will feel that they are in a real home, not a rental

Everybody who walks into the house is taken by the views and the way that it fits naturally into the setting. It is very well decorated but has a relaxed feel that makes it very comfortable. The sounds of the water and wildlife are simply incredible. The coziness does not mean antiquated. The electronics are incredible and easy to use. Security is foremost with digital door locks, security system, driveway surveillance, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and thermostats are of which are integrated and computer controlled. Home theater, stereo, and internet are very reliable and easy to use. Very clear instructions cover all aspects of the house, and a large notebook contains an exhaustive compilation of things to do.

Thanks to the owners for sharing this wonderful home. The setting is breathtaking from the moment that you walk into the house. Glistening waters visible from a panoramic view. The home has everything you need for a comfortable stay. So peaceful and unbelievable sunsets. We enjoyed exploring Stonington, Chester, quaint New England towns. The Island is a great place to walk or ride a bike. The Beluga whales at the Mystic Aquarium were also a big hit. Wonderful stay.

What a lovely experience. The owners were incredibly gracious and helpful. The home itself is comfortable and fully equipped and had plenty of room for our group of 4 adults and two children. We cooked, enjoyed the roof deck, sun room, and fireplace, and took long walks around the island, where we saw deer, turkey, cormorants, and herons. We explored Mystic and Stonington and had some great meals and beach walks. Mystic House is the perfect property for a relaxing getaway any time of year.

Magical Mystic Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
This home and its property has the best setting along the Connecticut shoreline. The views are truly awe-inspiring. We rented this home as a temporary residence until we purchased a home in the area. We loved every moment of it. It is romantic, quiet, private and spacious. It has good separation between the two bedroom areas, which makes it perfect for two couples. It was just the two of us, but when we had guests, they were upstairs in a spacious area with beautiful views. The home has everything you need in a vacation home. The linens included high quality sheets, pillows, duvets, and towels. The kitchen was stocked with All Clad cookware and nice glassware. We loved the native stone fireplace and the four season sunroom which offered prime views of the Mystic River tides. The house enjoys its very own cove and a small private beach. The owners work very hard to maintain the home and offer great books, videos and original art inspired by the region. We were mesmerized each morning, day & evening by the views of the sea, but most of all by the indescribable sunsets. If you are fortunate to stay in this home, regardless of the weather conditions, you have indeed experienced one of the most spectacular settings on earth.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 29, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
We returned last night from this special property and town. What an amazing home and view! We were blown away when we arrived. The pictures are spot on, but at the same time dont do it justice. Driving up on the private gravel road really helps to melt the real world away and put you in vacation mode. The rooms were very spacious, clean and homey. The kitchen had everything you could have wanted and more! the sliding glass doors and windows in the sunroom allowed for a wonderful spot to gather and play cards, eat meals, and sit around and talk with our other guests, while looking out at the gorgeous bay area. We enjoyed the large television to watch our favorite new england sports games, and very much appreciated the use of the WiFi. If I had more reasons to be in Mystic each year, I'd rent this home again and again.
