About Walter West or Linda Posillico

Living on Long Island, New York I frequently travel to Connecticut to prepare The Grand Victorian for it's visitors. It gives me great pleasure to read our guest book and find that many great memories were made in this "Magnificent Old Lady".

Walter West or Linda Posillico purchased this house in 2006

Why Walter West or Linda Posillico chose Niantic

The Grand Victorian has a very special place in my heart. Its been in my family for generations. There are many great childhood memories of summer vacations and family holidays through the years. Although she stands big and tall, this old Victorian house has plenty of warmth and coziness. Please sign our guests book and take a look at our family album from the 1930s to 1960s.

10 aduls, 5 kids Loved it

  • 5 of 5

So much to do. The house is amazing for a group and the vicinity is filled with activities with 30 minutes travel. Kids ranged in age from 9 to 16. There was space for each to be alone or together. As a family, we are game players and the dining room area allowed for puzzling while the family room allowed for group games like Codebreakers, Heads Up, charades. The front porch allowed for indoor watching of outdoor activities. We had dogs with us that ran up and down the hill along with grandkids. A beach is within 50 yards of the home and bigger more populated beaches are within walking distance or passes to parking areas. We celebrated family and 50 years of marriage. Great place. Walter and Linda more than helpful.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Close to beach and Main Street and the park

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wondeful weekend here with four other families all with young kids. It’s a beautiful old house with lots of amenities (beach toys, games room, outdoor porches and grill). Kitchen and bathroom were well stocked and we enjoyed the nearby beaches, park and playground. Definitely recommend.

Home for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect midway point and such a lovely and welcoming home for our 4 families to gather for the holidays. The owner was responsive and accommodating and answered all of our questions leading up to our stay. The house comfortably accommodated our group of 20. Between the large kitchen and dining room tables, we had plenty of room for enjoying meals, and there are lots of wonderful nooks and crannies in the home for gathering for games and conversation. We loved the front porch and the beautiful views. We even braved the 7-degree temperature to take a walk along the water one morning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a fun and peaceful getaway any time of the year! It’s also a great find for locals who need extra space when family and friends visit. Thank you, Walter and Linda!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Walter and Linda for letting us stay at your house. It's a great place to spend a summer vacation with family and friends. We not only loved the historic but modern house with everything you need, but also the location near beaches and towns like Mystic, Noank and Newport. We even went sailing at the yacht club!

Great Memorial Day/ 50th Anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay this past Memorial Day... the house is very well located, great to sit on the porch or the front lawn and watch the waterfront or go down to the cabana and enjoy the sand between your toes. Everything is well equipped; the kitchen has everything you could ask for and the house has plenty of towels, bedding, etc.. The bed's were all comfortable, too, and the bathrooms all clean. We had 13 people ranging from 11-76. There was space for us to all come together, but there were plenty of alternatives if you wanted a little quite reading time. Third floor game room was an added plus.
