About Deborah Schwartz

Our family has owned this house for a very long time, and we have had joyous years of using the house for summer fun, Christmas time parties, lounging on the porch, watching fireworks on the fourth of July, fishing off the pier, and great nights of cooking for large groups of friends and family. Some of us live in NYC, others in Washington, and others in Connecticut. This is our favorite vacation place.

Deborah Schwartz purchased this house in 1927

Why Deborah Schwartz chose Connecticut Shore

This is a magical house, with warm rich wood and stone details, on the beach, with lots of lovely rooms for rest and privacy, and spacious communal spaces for parties, family reunions, or work retreats.

What makes this house unique

Great location on the beach, perfect for large gatherings, but the house has so much space, and so many remote niches that it is also easy to find a quiet place to curl up and read a book. Private space and party space all wrapped into one incredibly beautiful house!

Sweet Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 gets together every summer to enjoy some time together and the beautiful outdoors. This home was great. We had enough bedrooms to spread out and the interior of the home is truly unique. My husband particularly enjoyed to office area overlooking the beach since he had to do some work while away. The kids enjoyed the short trip to the beach and the grownups enjoyed the opportunity to try out paddle boarding. We truly enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous House on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 couples who get together every season to celebrate our friendship! For our Spring get together, we rented this fabulous house on the beach and even though the weather was not the best, we really enjoyed our stay. First off, the house is very clean and welcoming. This Arts and Crafts house is absolutely beautiful with a stunning living room and dining room overlooking Long Island Sound! The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare gourmet meals! All the bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The owner, Deborah, was quick to respond to questions and resolve some minor issues. We have stayed at many houses listed on Homeaway and this is by far one of the best!

We all absolutely loved this fabulous house , even in February with a little snow on the ground, this place was spectacular. It was perfect for a 50th birthday celebration. The big dining room table accommodated all the guests. the grand piano and gas fireplace made The living room so inviting. The views of the ocean were spectacular from many of the rooms. This was a great house for entertaining as there are many different sitting areas throughout the house. The third floor has an added bonus with the huge open library with a comfy futon. We can only imagine how wonderful this house would be in the summer with the beach across the street and the huge front porch and large enclosed porch with a ping-pong table. The house was impeccable and The owner was very prompt in replying and was Extremely accommodating. We would definitely rent again!
