Guestbook comments from the owner

I received the check in the mail the other day, thanks!!! Last weekend was just ABSOLUTELY wonderful! Terrific people, delicious food, spirited dancing, and lovely weather :) Having the opportunity to stay at the creek house really just pulled it all together so we thank you profusely for that! I really can't think of anything that I would have changed. When I posed the question to some of the gang, there were a couple of rather tall fellows who jokingly brought attention to the low ceilings upstairs hahah but I think they will survive! Not to mention that I felt it offered quaint and charming character to the place anyways! Thanks again! We would and will definitely rent again.

Fantastic Property Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults and 3 children 10 years old) absolutely loved this property. The first floor bedroom was perfect for the “elders” and the second floor bedroom with bunks (1 twin slid under bottom bunk) was perfect for the 3 kids and their parents while the remaining adults made use of the other 3 bedrooms. The history of the house is fascinating and it wasn’t too long before we felt like it was “ours” and we had been staying there for years. Thanks so much for sharing this home. It met all our expectations and then some and we all can’t wait to return.

A quiet charming respite

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of spending a week recently at the Creek House and it was a delightful experience.

The home has a tremendous amount of character and all the comforts of home.

It was clean, bright and spacious and located right on the banks of a

Safe salt water inlet, perfect for families.

Angela was a delight to work with and most accommodating.

A perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature yet convenient to Niantic and other quaint shoreline towns.

I hope to return next summer with my family and enjoy possibly even more time at the Creek House

Most Enjoyable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As in the past, we enjoyed our stay at Angela's Connecticuit Home...The setting is perfect with the little beach, water and dock. The house is fully equipped and very comfortable. I get the best bedroom on the first floor and am very comfortable there.

We were about to catch crabs and enjoy eating them, swim and float right outside the house. Looking forward to next year..

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Creek House was a great place for our family. All 5 children and 6 adults had a comfortable stay. A few even learned to catch crabs. The kayaking was a highlight. It's a perfect place for young children

Amazing outside, very rustic inside

  • 3 of 5

My family (6 adults, 3 kids - all under 6) spent a week at this beautiful property. We lucked out with the weather and that made our stay so much better. There is a beautiful yard, swing set, big porch with gorgeous view of the river, dock, boats and a small beach that was perfect for our little ones. The house has 5 bedrooms, (1 with twin bed, the room is so tiny!) and 2 bathrooms (both very small). The house is old, mostly clean. It was a little tight inside with all these people, and if it had rained more I think we would have gone stir-crazy. The house is rustic and TVs are ancient, and the beds are not comfortable. There are no frills here, but its cozy. The listing says there is air conditioning, but there were only 3 window units. The upstairs got warm at night, good thing we brought more fans to cool things down. The owners were very easy to contact, accommodating and very friendly. I would go back for the outside, but not the inside. Overall, it was good.

Owner's Response: The property is exactly as advertised on the VRBO site. The property has wonderful views overlooking the gentle tidal river and beautiful flower gardens throughout. It is quiet and peaceful, a great place to relax. The house is a historic colonial. It is clean, comfortable, charming and fully furnished (but not luxurious). We continue to make improvements to the house and property to improve the rental experience.
