This house is really spectacular. Heidi has thought of every detail and amenity possible and has been wonderful and responsive. The house is incredibly clean and well-decorated. We immediately felt at home when we arrived! The decor feels like an upscale bed and breakfast. We rent a different house every summer and finally have found the ONLY one we want to rent in the summers to come! The pool and landscaping is gorgeous. It is right in town, so you can walk to dinner, ice cream and cute shops. This place is a true gem. It would be great to stay here any time of year.

Coming from Scotland, we took a long time to choose an area to visit and a house to stay in. As this was a ‘new holiday rental’, it had no reviews, however our gut feeling was to ‘take a punt’. We had high expectations and this house exceeded these. A fabulous location, secluded yet within walking distance of shops, restaurants, etc. The owners have put a considerable amount of thought into furnishing and equipping this home. Loads of lovely fresh linen, thick big towels (including pool towels) and thoughtful touches throughout, for example: a range of cool boxes. Their aim is to provide a home from home and they certainly have achieved this!
This is a unique, period home which has many original features and a quirky layout over 3 floors, which only add to its charm. However, be mindful of the advice from the owners regarding very young children and those with mobility limitations.
Nonetheless the practical side has not been neglected. The house is clean and well maintained with a modern air conditioning system, a laundry room and 5 TVs!
The garden and pool (absolute stunner!) are beautiful and again well equipped for outside eating and relaxing.
We certainly hope to return in the future.

We are from the Connecticut river valley and rent there every summer, and have for the past eight years. This was by far the best house we have ever rented, and with great pleasure, we will rent it again! The location can't be beat and the house is absolutely perfect. No expense was spared preparing this house for rental. Top quality linens, plush bathrobes, brand new toys and books bought for kids, exceptional dishware. I wish I had this kitchen at home! The restoration of this charming, cozy colonial--which has more character than any house I've ever lived in--was done lovingly. Fireplaces adorn nearly every room, claw foot bathtubs. Yet every modern comfort is also there (exceptional shower on the 2nd floor, for example). I hate pools, yet this stone pool and hot tub lured me in. The gardens are beautifully maintained. Let's just say I am very picky about furniture and art, yet I would buy almost every piece in this house. It was very hard to leave after three amazing weeks!

This house will not disappoint! The property is beautifully decorated and maintained - it has the best of both worlds - period details including the original fireplaces, exposed beams in the kitchen and beautiful floors throughout have the old world charm you expect in Essex, but it's also been updated with a high tech heating/air conditioning system, convenient laundry room off the kitchen, etc. It was a pleasure for our family of 4 to stay here. We have two children (8 and 10) who loved having the top floor to themselves. We paid for the pool to be heated, a good choice otherwise it would have been too cold in early June. Centrally located, it's a quick walk to our favorite shops. There are no downsides...the property manager was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process. We look forward to renting this home again.
