About Barbara Lucas
As Branford natives, we both are very familiar with the local area and enjoy renovation and preservation projects, and are happy to share our tales of what we learned about our building's history and character. Both fans of Big East Basketball, Claudio is a Providence Colleage Friar and Barbara is a Villanova Wildcat - so when it's March Madness, we are glued to the stats! After globetrotting in the yachting industry, Barbara's 15-year residence in Florida came to a halt when she relocated back to New England in 2008. As frequent vacation home renters themselves, we know what travelers expect when they arrive at their destination: clean comfort.
Barbara Lucas purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Barbara Lucas chose Stony Creek
We renovated Claudio's childhood home in this great New England town and know that the shoreline real estate here is HOT! Together we merged our skill-sets on the Stony Creek Depot project to showcase our design aesthetic, expand our retail vintage business and secure a home in a highly coveted neighborhood. Our guests can book short-term stays in the spacious residential space to enjoy this wonderful little coastal village. Residents and tourists take in the beautiful Thimble Island views and nature hikes that are just footsteps from the Depot's front door. We love Branford and consider ourselves lucky to get a footing in the Stony Creek village, where properties often remain in the same family for generations. We are dedicated to helping this property flourish as a vibrant part of the community since it has a 100+ year history of adapting to commercial and residential enjoyment.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property retains the original flavor of an older, coastal New England home, while bringing in some of the modern comforts that we enjoy and guests will expect in a vacation rental. Without having direct water views we are able to keep the price point a bit lower than higher dollar properties footsteps away, making it a budget-friendly alternative to a generic hotel room. Because we are also pet-friendly and only require a 2-day minimum booking (not a full week), Stony Creek Depot is a great weekend getaway retreat. We love using this residential space while we run our onsite, street-front business and we hope that making it available for short-term rental will enable visitors to appreciate the charms of the Stony Creek village.

This place is amazing! If you are going to Connecticut you MUST stay here!
Beautiful home, with gorgeous attention to details in decorating!
Clean and spacious!
Tasteful decor and a peaceful stay. I feel many hours and thought went into the decor. Plenty of space and the rooms were larger then we expected. We loved having a laundry room.
Sweet little apartment!
This apartment is adorable. Beautifully laid out and comfortable. Barbara outdid herself with design and decoration. We felt welcomed like we were visiting good friends. Thank you for making it a great vacation!
Beautiful, warm and cozy apartment - perfect for a few days or a few months!
The apartment was beautiful! All the amenities we expected and more. The decor, furniture and beds were soooo comfortable. I loved the location, cute little town but not far from the highway and within short driving distance to stores as well as New Haven. Our hostess was great and really hospitable. I have stayed in several VRBO properties and this is one of the best experiences I have ever had.
Such a nice place to stay
Very large apartment, super nicely decorated with all the comfort of your home ! two minctes walking from the Stony Creek center ! Barbara is adorable and made us feel so comfortable right away ! We loved it !!!!!
It's only 4 miles to the center of Branford, a classic New England town with a quaint Main Street with many restaurants, shops and salons. Summer has many activities on the central green space (jazz concersts on Thursdays, fireworks, festivals). Guilford, is the neighboring town to the east with similar charm. Bishop's Orchards has pick-your-own crops so you can follow the season - and autumn is the culmination with pumpkin patch activities.
Easy day trips to Hammonasset State Beach for nature lovers, or Mystic CT for a sense of history.
