Located on Masons Island, private association. House on a quiet street with a 100 yard walk to a small private beach. Swimming, sunbathing, crabbing, kayaking and sailing. Wonderful place for morning and evening walks along the water or on nature trails.
We spent a long weekend in Mason's island ( two families with young kids), and the location was truly amazing! The house was great, plenty of room and very clean. The garden was highly appreciated by the kids. We also enjoyed kayaking, walking around the island and going to the beach.
We decided to try something other than a hotel this year for our annual trip to Mystic , CT for the Nordic Lodge's opening weekend. We had 4 adults staying in this little yellow cottage, there was plenty of room with the couch & tv and with playing cards/games at the table. We walked around on the island, very cute little spot, tho had a hard time finding beach access with homes. Since it was closed we opted to walk to MIYC to sit by the water and take in all the views. Wonderful blend of woods, stones & water. The deck was wonderful for morning & evening coffee. We made use of the fireplace every night too, which you can't get in most hotel rooms. Would definitely rent again!
We went up to Mason's Island over Memorial Day weekend with our two small children and my parents (6 people total). The area was great and the island was really nice! The property had a swing set in the backyard that my kids enjoyed playing on and also had a high chair. No pack n play, but we brought our own. One of the bedrooms doesn't have dry wall all the way to the ceiling so could hear what was going on in the rest of the house. We put the kids in there and luckily had remembered to bring their sound machines which really helped with other noise for them to sleep. The blinds in the bedroom upstairs with the full size bed need to be replaced as they were broken and the sun was coming in early. I had to hang the blanket on the window to keep the light out. There also needs to be window treatments on the other upstairs bedroom with the unfinished wall b/c it was very bright in the morning (with two little kids, that means that they're up at 6 am). Overall a very nice place to stay and good location !
