About Michael Byrne

This family property is rented for part of the year only to recover the costs of the recent renovation. Come and enjoy our home

Why Michael Byrne chose Connecticut Shore

The property was purchased by the family in 1965

Leetes Island and Guilford is a small piece of how things used to be. Leave your car horn at home.

What makes this cottage unique

Cool summer mornings, having coffee on the deck watching the Great Blue Heron diving for fish. Spending time on Guilford green and watching the sunset over the Thimble Islands as the bay faces west which, is unusual on the east coast

wish we could have stayed longer

So relaxing. We had a wonderful time. Loved sitting on the deck with my morning coffee, watching people crabing. The cottage is completely furnished. Kitchen has everything you could want. The sunsets are amazing. Mike is wonderful to work with, was always available. Can't wait to go back, hope we can soon.

We Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Stones throw from the water and from the beach . It was all refurbished including brand new kitchen and bath . It is located on a bay right off the Thimble Islands Water was beautiful to sail on and swim in . Loved the sunsets! It faces south so we got sun all day long .It was very quiet. No noisy neighbors at all. Gui;ford is fantastic .Well worth traveling the 20 minutes west of New Haven to get here.Lovely colonial town with beautiful town green ,
