About Wendy and James Canty

Hi! We're James and Wendy. We've lived in Mystic for the past 8 years and have raised our children here. Mystic has so much to offer, we'd love to share it with you!

Wendy and James Canty purchased this house in 2009

Why Wendy and James Canty chose Mystic

John Denison House was once a corn shed on the Denison Farm, Mystic's earliest settlement. Later moved down the hill to its current location, John Denison House has been restored and renovated to allow 21st century amenities and comfort whilst still retaining its historic charm. Stay in a bit of history!

Classic house in idyllic town

  • 5 of 5

Cheers to James and Wendy!

Their house, which combines some modern amenities with some old school character, was the perfect fit for a recent trip I took there with my wife, 60-plus year old parents, and brother and sister-in-law.

The home has a big enough back yard to grill and relax as well as a nice open living/kitchen and dining room area that never felt cramped for the six of us.

There is a king bed on the first floor, and two rooms upstairs - one with a couple of single beds and one with a queen. Both of them have wall mounted AC units.

To top it off, the abode is a few minutes stroll from the restaurants and other action this idyllic seaside town has to offer.

I would recommend this house. We had no issues whatsoever.

Great location, charming home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 5 years ago during our first family trip to Mystic and we enjoyed our stay even more this time! The home has been updated to have a large open kitchen and living room. With 3 bedrooms we were very comfortable as a family of 6. I also was so happy that they had a pack n play and booster high chair for my baby to use. Another big plus was the home is in a wonderful location, walking distance to downtown Mystic, the Seaport and a charming park for the kids to play.

The owners are a pleasure to work with and we'd certainly stay again! Thanks for a great vacation!

Great location in a comfortable cozy home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed at the Dennison Cottage and truly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect, our kids had sailing camp at the Seaport which is a 5 min walk, and we enjoyed the short walk to town for dinner or ice cream nearly every day. The home had everything we needed and was totally comfortable for all of us. We also loved the backyard and outdoor dining set. Overall, it was a great experience for us, and we will seek to stay again next year.

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This house is delightful - it was the perfect choice for our family's visit to Mystic. Very comfortable, and situated within easy walking distance to both the Historic Seaport and all the shops and restaurants downtown. There's a great grocery store just a few minutes away, and the kitchen is well-equipped for you to prepare anything you can dream up! Comfy beds, all linens, towels and pillows provided (THANK YOU!). All the comforts of home (minus my Keurig, but I survived). I would definitely recommend this rental to a friend!

Living in Mystic has been like being on permanent vacation for our family! There is always something to do, from walking to the point of Napatree, to mountain biking at bluff point, lounging on amazing beaches, and spoiled for choice with local restaurants. Two highly reputed restaurants are opening Spring 2014. And on cold nights we may even take the short 15 minute drive to Foxwoods for a bit of gaming.
