wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

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 ,
