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!

Gorgeous, spacious rental

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house in October.. cool/rainy weekend but still unbeatable views. Woke up to the sunrise over the water, right from the bedroom window. Would be a perfect location for a week at the beach in the summer- or just a quiet escape for the weekend any time of year! Very clean, and well maintained. Great kitchen and large dining area. Comfortable beds and linens. No disappointments.

Clean, spacious and perfectly located across from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautifully preserved historic home right on the beach. My family picks a different house on the Milford Shore every year and we all agreed that this has been our absolute favorite so far. The house was clean and well stocked and we had very clear instructions for everything from the coffee machine to the television. There was one slight hiccup where the HVAC stopped working and the owners had someone there within a few hours to fix it. I would highly recommend his house to anyone and I look forward to renting it again next summer.

Thank you for everything!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2nd vacation at the Woodmont house and it was perfect to say the least. The house is so comfortable and well maintained you just automatically relax and enjoy your time. The new ping pong table was used constantly and the water boards were great.

Wonderful stay

Absolutely wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderfully maintained historic home directly on the Long Island Sound could not have suited our multifamily needs for the week of 7/1/16-7/8/16 better. All the home’s amenities were fully satisfactory and exactly as described in the provided descriptions. Our family group, which included 4 sets of couples along with some children, at no time felt crowded or on top of one another for this home is extremely spacious with multiple living areas. As with many social gatherings we would gravitate to the kitchen’s preparation, eating & sitting areas which provided an extremely “homey” feel. Additionally we spent many hours lounging on the grand front porch overlooking the Sound, just too beautiful. The single lane one-way street located between the home and the beachfront was never very busy and vehicles were very courteous to drive slowly due to the presence of many joggers, walkers & kids along the beachfront sidewalk. The provided beach chairs and paddle boards were especially welcome and used often during our stay. This home is steeped in history from the architecture to the volumes of books and household artifacts…you will truly feel as if you have stepped back in time during your stay. The “U” shaped driveway along with an architectural overhang large enough for two vehicles made off street parking extremely convenient and could accommodate to upwards of 6~8 vehicles. For groceries & miscellaneous sundries you need not go further than the 5 minute drive to Adam’s Hometown Market. This is a full service grocery that would have everything you might need for a week’s plus stay and is reasonably priced. No “negatives” to comment on from my perspective; although if your intent is to watch an important event on television you may want to have an alternative plan; there are no medium or large screen TV’s. There is a TV, in fact there may have been a couple, but small. You’ll likely forget about television when you walk into this home…for us that was a great thing.

Thank you Mrs. Schwartz for the privilege of allowing our family to spend of week in your family’s home…many lasting memories were made!!!

Cannot wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing. The entire family is trying to coordinate another week or 2 to all be together again. I had my wedding ceremony right across the street on the beach and a small reception in the house. It was spacious enough for everyone to feel comfortable.

The house was maticuously clean and well stocked. Unfortunately the weather wasn't nice enough to go kayaking, but we will definitely do that in the summer.

Thank you Deb & Family!!
