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!)'

Response

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 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....

Beautiful, Quiet house with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for several relaxing days with our children (2 and under 1). The house was very comfortable, in a quiet nook away from traffic. Everything we needed was there for us, and when we ran out of dishwasher detergent, the owner even brought some over within a couple of hours. It is a short walk to a very small, secluded beach that my kids loved (and had all to themselves) and there are great antique stores and restaurants in the vicinity. We will definitely be staying here again and recommending to friends and family.

Disappointed....

  • 3 of 5

We were a bit disappointed with our stay. It is always the little things that count. When I saw the pictures of the cottage I was overwhelmed with what I thought were small touches like the fresh flowers. We arrived and it was quite cold and we were told there was going to be a key under a cushion just in case the lock box didn't open because of the cold... but there wasn't one...we relied on the notion that the lock box would not be cold and would open but if it hadn't we would have had a real problem. There were no welcoming touches like fresh flowers anywhere. The House Rules were posted quite clearly however. No call from the owner at all for the two days we were there asking if everything was okay or if we needed anything. There was no soap for the bath; no tea or coffee...the little things that make one feel welcome. Even after our stay there was no follow up from the owner at all even though I think she manages other properties right there. We could have not even been there and she wouldn't have known. It didn't make us feel welcome at all. The cottage is sweet and was clean but I want to feel at least welcomed and I didn't.

Owner's Response: Gosh, I am very sorry you felt this way. It was New Years Eve and I certainly would not have bothered anyone who may have come in late. I assumed, if you needed anything or had an issue you would have called, since I am five mins away. I usually do not bother Guest but let them know if they have a question or issue for them to ring me. The key was a back up since I had an issue. .I just spoke to the cleaning lady, she let me know she had put in in a better spot. So this could have been taken care of in a min. Flowers, I agree, I wish I could fill the house with flowers, but the flowers are from my garden and its winter. I just do not provide tea and coffee, but will really consider this request. The home is a vacation rental and not a Bed and Breakfast. I am certainly open to Guest request and provide many items most vacation rentals do not. This year the home was picked as one of the top ten unique places to stay in CT...thought I had it down..LOL Happy New Year, Yvette

Sweet but short stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house - comfortable and quiet. Very happy with the service - we had a miscommunication about arrival, which was resolved immediately! We only needed to stay 1 night but would consider a return in the summer. It would be a lovely place to spend a week.

Cute house for a relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5

I had a great time at this cute little house. The attention to detail on comfort was notable - there were even fresh flowers on the table when we arrived! It was a great space for a few friends to gather and relax. My only recommendation for the owner to provide a bit more information on access to the private beach - we weren't sure if ID was required or if as guests we would be allowed on it. Otherwise, a fabulous stay!

Property is cute and welcoming!

The cottage was a delight. The decor is light and charming. Plenty of room for the 4 of us.

The deck and backyard is wonderful for entertaining. Location is perfect for sightseeing- Newport and Boston were easy destinations.

Yvette has take.n the time to supply full amenities. She makes your stay easy .

We would certainly my return.
