The perfect location, a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you notice is the spectacular location of this wonderful beach home. It sits on a peninsula with the Housatonic River on one side of the house and the L.I. Sound on the other. Every room in the house offers a water view, allowing you to see the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening. The The location offers privacy away from the crowds and yet is very close to everything you need in town as well as I 95 access. The private beach front extends from the water to the steps of the deck with lots of sand and space for everyone. There is plenty of outdoor living space with an upper and lower deck, a fire pit and adirondack chairs on the beach. The house is furnished in an attractive and comfortable beach style, and just as important, the beds are very comfortable! The house is equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your stay, and bikes and kayaks are included. The owners are wonderful and very responsive if you need anything. We have enjoyed our stay immensely and give our highest recommendation - I have no doubt you will have a lovely stay!

Unique property

  • 5 of 5

We used this shore house as base camp for three-generation family gathering to celebrate son's medical school graduation. The house and location worked perfectly with easy access to the city. We enjoyed the view, kayak, bikes, fire pit and house amenities.The location next to bird sanctuary and access shore was unique. Owners communicated promptly and professionally. .
