Guestbook comments from the owner

For retired teachers there is nothing like a vacation in September! It was great to live in Clinton again. We encourage all to try watching the sunset from the

new room at Aqua, the "breakfast scramble" at Coffee Break, brunch on the weekends outside of Pennylane Pub, Seabrook lobster roll at the old Petry's dock and Julia's bookstore in Madison.Take time to look at the ocean views always!

The cottage is lovely as is the area. The sunsets are stunning! There are great places to eat. I enjoyed the ability to ride my bike all along the water way. I highly recommend this rental. Ann is wonderful to work with.

CLEAN, cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay. The owner of the property keeps the place clean, everything you need is available to you. She doesn't miss a single detail. She stays in close communication and is very responsive and accommodating. The house is located in a quiet family oriented neighborhood close to small private bayside beach. Our kids (8&9 yrs old) had independence and were able to ride bikes and walk around the neighborhood and to/from beach on their own. We never worried about them. The house is updated with all you need to relax and enjoy. Located close to conveniences for groceries, restaurants and outlet shopping. Perfect time away. We loved this place. Ann the landlord is terrific!

We hope to rent again next year!!

Very happy with this rental property!

  • 4 of 5

This is the 1st time I rented at the CT shore and was very happy with my summer rental this year in Clinton, CT. The cottage had everything you could think of and was very tastefully decorated. It was the perfect size for my family of three. It was a quick stroll to the beach, although the private beach was disappointing as it was extremely small. The cottage was in a great location, within a mile or two of several great restaurants and shopping on rainy days. I loved the master bedroom, I felt like I was staying at a spa for the week, very spacious and calming colors and decor. Just what I needed for a much needed relaxing vacation. The ceiling fans were great, reducing the amount of time we needed to use the A/C. The only upgrades I might consider if it was my home, is having higher toilets installed and upgrading with new A/c units but overall a great place! Would recommend this property.

This is a perfect cottage! It had everything we needed for a perfect week. The neighborhood is quiet and the kids enjoyed the scooters. Easy walk to the beach.Cottage is air conditioned which made our week comfortable as we had very warm weather. Ann was very nice to work with and kept us up to date we all details.

Good morning Ann! Just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed staying at your lovely cottage last week! We had great weather most of the week and had a great time at the beach!! It turned out my brother and his family or two doors down and my cousin & his family was next-door in the yellow cottage. It was fantastic! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

If you don't feel like cooking, there are great restaurants in the area that offer casual waterside dining. Driving North on Rt. , Bill's Seaford is located right next to the 'Singing Bridge' and has great casual outdoor dining, live entertainment and ice cream shop for all to enjoy. The Boom at Brewer's Pilot Point Marina was voted the 'BEST LUNCH' in 2009 by Connecticut Magazine and the views of the yachts are beautiful. Water's Edge Resort Sunset Bar and Grill that has live entertainment in the summer and a nice spot for drink. If you like Mexican don't miss The Whole Encilada and for fine dining Cafe Routier Bistro and Lounge is a treat. Heading South on Rt. 1 be sure to visit the town of Madison and drop by Indian River Marina and rent a kayak or canoe for the day. The Thimble Islands boat tour in Stony Creek is a must. MGM Grand and Foxwood, premier outlet shopping, multiplex movie theater, Mystic Seaport and Museum, Essex Steam Train are list goes on! Enjoy your stay!

Other Activities: sandy beaches, great restraurants, outlet shopping
