'Awesome Cottage! Great Owner!

Absolutely loved this house and will definitely plan on staying here again! My husband is originally from Connecticut and his entire family still lives there. Traditionally we stay with family when we visit but I decided to rent a house this trip so we could entertain and have everyone over. This house was charming and very comfortable. It was my mother in laws 80th birthday and I had about 25 family members over for a dinner party. Every person who entered the house commented on what a terrific cottage it was. Having the upstairs loft was a perfect space for my son to have his privacy and a place to relax. He (and I) loved having the wireless internet connection that worked great! The outdoor area was very private and the deck was a wonderful space to hang out and kick back. Everyone really enjoyed the art work throughout the house and commented that it provided warmth and character to the cottage. Lastly I want to share my comments on the owner Yvette, she was very prompt in her responses to me and a real pleasure to work with through the rental process. Yvette thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was the most memorable visit to Connecticut that our family has ever had. Take care, my best, Julianna (This was the first time I ever rented a home online or used the Home Away site, it was a great experience!)'

I have been renting my cottage since 2006. I own the lot next door, a tiny wooded lot, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt road....the home has a large deck, front porch, fireplace, I provide linens, spices, paper towels, trash bags.

This is the home I raised my boys in. It was always filled with love....

Its quiet, clean, I own the lot next door, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt road....the home has a large deck, front porch, fireplace, I provide linens, spices, kitchen & dining ware.

Great area, charming neighborhood of beach cottages. I made it colorful and decorated with interesting art. The kitchen back splash is a hand-made compilation of broken glass, shells and interesting finds…. Nice deck, huge pine tree, perennial gardens make for a charming yard. Boat mooring, beach.....Fireplace, air conditioning.

Great cottage!

This cottage was a great place for my family (with 3 boys) to stay. The loft area (which sleeps 4 very comfortably) was perfect for the kids... very spacious and the beds were VERY comfy. The master bedroom was perfect for my husband and I. Hardwoods throughout, big back yard, great fireplace, very nicely decorated without being too "fancy" so we felt relaxed there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back (hopefully in the summer when we can enjoy the beach too).

The cottage was very clean when we arrived. Overall - a great value for the money and a wonderful weekend!

Hello Yvette - I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful vacation. It was
the perfect end to summer! The cottage was everything we hopes for and more! We
had near perfect weather for the whole two weeks and enjoyed the beautiful yard
and lovely beach every day. Everything about the cottage and location was very
family friendly.

I hope that we can make a stay in your cottage a family tradition.


Sincerely,
Ann

Hello Yvette, I rented the cottage at 14 Evans Lane back in June when I went to a family graduation party in Old Saybrook. Somehow I didn't get back to you at the time, but I wanted to say that everything was as described or even more lovely, very clean, and we had a great time. I would be happy to be a reference any time. Hope the summer went well for you. Linda V Graham & Family

Charming cottage located on a quiet dead end street. The owner has decorated the house in a shabby chic/coastal cottage style that is very welcoming. The cottage is well equipped with ample linens, towels, paper supplies, and cleaning supplies. The kitchen is also well equipped with dishes and cooking pots and pans. When I arrived, the hydrangeas and daylilies were in full bloom. The butterfly bush in front attracted numerous butterflies and hummingbirds. The backyard and deck were wonderful places to just relax and read. I was there during one of the longest heat waves of the summer and was so glad to have AC! My dog and I enjoyed our early morning and evening walks through the neighborhood, which is family orientated and friendly. I will definitely consider returning to this charming "maison de mer".

Cute Summer Cottage

A very cute cottage. The pictures accurately showed the home. It was very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is very peaceful. The house could use some updating and a some paint here and there. The air conditioning was minimal. Inside was "shabby chic." Well worn, but well taken care of. Would recommend it for families.

We were in Old Saybrook for a very special occassion and were so lucky to be able to spend the weekend at this cottage. Yvette shares her charming cottage which is very well maintained and clean, complete with all you would need, and is in a very quiet neighborhood. The cottage is the perfect place to relax, enjoy good company (4 of us stayed at the cottage), and visit Old Saybrook and nearby sites, Yvette was a joy to work with throughout the rental process and always quick to return an email or a call. A+++ all around. We thank you for your hospitality.

Dear Yvette,



Our dear friends daughter's wedding was beautiful, the weather was spectacular, and your cottage was a wonderful place for us to stay!

We could not have asked for more...charming in the details and personal touches, comfortable and cozy, and complete with all the necessities.



Thank you for your hospitality, you were a pleasure to speak with and made the rental experience a breeze.



Needless to say, we loved your "cottage"; it made our weekend perfect!



My best,

Karin
