Guestbook comments from the manager

For an annual leadership getaway for our church, we decided to rent a vacation house for a little 'homey' feel. We were happy to find a house in Mystic this year. The house was clean and well maintained. And the pictures were accurate. The bedrooms were great size. The kitchen/dining/living room combo provided an open and spacious feel. The location was in a nice quite area of the town. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Everyone of us had a great and relaxing time. We would definitely like to return next year! Thank you so much!!

A Perfect Reunion Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were six "young" gals celebrating 50 years of friendship. We all met in the fall of 1967 as freshmen at a small liberal arts college for women in Massachusetts. We have enjoyed several reunions over the years in various places in New England, New Jersey and Naples, Florida. It was my turn this year to do the planning. I settled on a new spot for us, Mystic Seaport, Connecticut, and hit the jackpot with 5 Elm Place!

From the description and photos on VRBO, we knew this was a special house. Yet, we were not prepared for how spectacularly it presents in person. Upon first entering 5 Elm, one is struck by the fine furnishings and the decorator's eye for detail. At the same time, the house is inviting and very comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped; Mark has thought of everything one might conceivably need, and more. The entire main floor is open and provides a nice area for socializing. As there were six of us, we used the leaf in the dining table and spent entire mornings sitting around it, lingering over breakfast and that extra cup of coffee.

The bedrooms worked well for us. They are beautifully appointed, each with a television, and with exceptionally comfortable beds and pillows. The bathrooms are spotless and nicely equipped, and have great showers. The linen closet has more extra towels than one could possibly use. All the linens, in general, are of high quality. One friend remarked that she felt like we were at a spa!

A favorite spot on the property is the yard. The dining area with its outdoor lighting is so welcoming. For us, the fire pit was most memorable, as the six of us sat out one evening reminiscing, laughing and enjoying out little campfire. Yes, we sang a few songs.

Thank you, Mark, for checking in with us and making sure all was going well. Congratulations on your high standards of maintenance. We honestly felt as though the house had been built just before our arrival. Finally, it was unanimous among the group that 5 Elm Place had certainly earned a return reunion visit. See you next year!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this home for a 3 day stay for a wedding. The instant you walk through the door you are impressed. The décor is carefully chosen to highlight the local Mystic area which we love. The living area is comfortable for family breakfasts or dinners or just hanging out with the family. We were lucky enough to have some warm evenings during our stay so we able to enjoy the beautiful outdoor patio area and the hammock. The house is convenient to and within walking distance of downtown Mystic, so its easy to enjoy all of the local restaurants and shops....what's better than that? Our host, Mark, was lovely to deal with. He walked us through the house so we would be comfortable with all the elements of the house and let us know he was there for us if we needed him. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again!

Wonderful stay in Mystic!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 adults and 2 young kids staying in Mystic the week of Labor Day. Mark's house is wonderful - spacious and clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and we used the grill several times and ate in the lovely backyard. The house is also well-situated a 10 minute walk from town. We had questions about the outdoor lights one evening and Mark was immediately available to help us. I would definitely recommend this house for your stay in Mystic!

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully decorated. All the little touches that Mark has added to this house is simply breathtaking. There was not one thing that he left out. He even went so far as to provide batteries. I had a toy for my grandson and didn't realize I forgot the batteries and we looked in the garage (that you can actually eat off the floor) and right there in the draw were batteries. The rooms are so spacious and comfortable. I really can't say enough about this home. I could go on and on. It is not your usual rental home. I would rate it from 1-10 a 10+ and beyond. Thank You Mark for a great vacation.

5 Elm Place, Mystic,Ct

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 rented this beautiful home for 4 nights and no one wanted to leave! Mark is an awesome guy who has thought of basically everything anyone could possibly need during their stay! Location was perfect , beds and pillows were super comfortable! The setup is perfect for a large or small group. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The outside seating was perfect for a gathering after my daughter's wedding! I would highly recommend this house and honestly plan to go back again soon for a girls weekend!
