Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Carol,

Back to Reality! yes, a 'cheerful thought' brings to my mind sitting on the deck at your lovely home. Your home certainly felt like 'a home away from home' so comfortable and inviting. We all thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and lovely scenery. Couldn't have been more pleased to celebrate my 60th exactly where we did. Wish you and yours all the best!

Kind Regards,

Amazing views in every direction! A lovely spacious home.

  • 4 of 5

We were three couples with college age daughters, who stayed there for our other kids' Yale graduation. There was plenty of room for three separate families (friends) to not be on top of each other.

There were only two small downsides for us- our daughters are all athletes nursing various kinds of injuries and the air mattresses Carole graciously provided for us weren't ideal for their backs. So I would say that while the house is roomy it is really best for up to four couples (no twin beds). Of course this was a risk we were willing to take as we weren't even sure if the girls would be able to come.

The other downside was that no other visitors are permitted so we had to cancel plans to host our graduates and a few of their friends & parents- we hadn't noticed that restriction when we decided to rent. This latter point didn't turn out to be a big deal as we were so busy with graduation that we were in New Haven almost all of the time anyway.but it is something I wish I'd noticed before renting. It is a quiet place in a quiet neighborhood so anyone considering staying there should not think of it as a gathering spot.

A perfect setting for the bride's family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful, clean, well appointed home and hope to go back again on a less hectic weekend.

Our daughter married at the nearby Owenego Inn and this home provided the perfect setting for the bride and her entourage to prepare on the big day. We had three generations all accommodated in beautiful bedrooms. The kitchen was set up with everything a professional chef would need and there was plenty of deck and living space to read quietly, nap or watch TV. Finally the largest deck overlooking the water and harbor was breathtaking. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your magnificent home on this very special occasion.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer rental property. This was PERFECT for our extended family visit to Branford. It is extraordinarily well equipped with tons of extra linens, utensils, dishes, etc. We had two young grandchildren with us and there was plenty of room for them to play. The house was immaculate and the water views are really lovely. It was quite warm during our visit and the AC kept up beautifully. We also enjoyed the membership in the beach and tennis club just a short distance away. We'd rent this again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This home is 100% as advertised!

Immediately upon arrival we noticed 2 things.... the house was SPOTLESS and the views are spectacular! Thankfully, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy them. The photos are so accurate that even though we were coming to the home for the first time, it already felt familiar.

The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and there is a more than sufficient stash of towels, bedding, etc. The kitchen is extremely well appointed. Every single appliance, utensil, etc that we needed was there - we cooked most meals in the home so this was a huge plus! There is a TON of cutlery, plates, etc

We had an extremely wonderful week with our family at this spectacular home.

Memorial Day weekend in Branford, Ct.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely and well equipped home. There are water views on three sides of the house with large windows to capture the view. The Branford area was lovely, and I strongly suggest the 45 minute boat tour of the Thimble Islands. A terrific Memorial Day weekend getaway. Steve
