The Captain William Morgan House, a sea captain's home circa 1850. Completely renovated in 2010, this Greek Revival maintains all of its original charm as well as modern amenities. It is located in the heart of downtown Mystic's historic district- leave your car and walk everywhere!
The yard is entirely fenced in. There is a sitting porch on the front and a large, covered, pillared porch on the back of the house. We created a 6 ft. granite fire pit in the back as well as another patio. Vegetable and flower gardens surround the property.
Mystic River views are seen from most windows and the back yard. You can hear boat whistles, church bells and sea sounds. My property is a double sized lot, very private, peaceful and relaxing!
Susan's home is absolutely stunning; the pictures don't even do it justice. It is an extremely modern, tasteful renovation of a historic home. The most exceptional part of this rental is all the little details; everything is carefully labeled and easy to find, and anything you could possibly forget for your vacation is stuck in a little cubby somewhere. The yard and deck are lovely, spacious, and private, and the main-floor bathroom is like something out of a luxury hotel. It's about a 5-minute stroll to all of the shops and restaurants of Mystic.
It's good to note that the common areas of the house do not have air conditioning; we were there on a humid, 85 degree weekend, and the kitchen and living rooms heated up quite a bit. But the AC units in the bedrooms kept us cool at night.
A wonderful weekend all-around.
My family rented the Captain Morgan House and Carriage Houses for my wedding week. We had an amazing stay - the bedrooms had great air conditioning to keep us cool at night and while we got ready and the backyard was great for our family to gather. What made our stay even more special was the short walk to downtown Mystic. We were able to walk into town each morning for a cup of coffee or to go shopping, and had amazing restaurants only a few city blocks away. I would recommend this house for a family stay!! Thanks Sue for a great experience!!
This was one of the best homes I have ever stayed in!
I just wanted to thank you immensely for opening your home to us 2 weekends ago. My friend, who is getting married, has said on a number of occasions that it was the best weekend she has ever had and was so touched that we planned the whole thing to celebrate her. Hearing her say it was the best weekend of her life just made me so happy as her best friend. We also said we would love to bring our significant others back for another weekend and stay at your amazing home.
The house was beautiful, large, clean and so unique. There were such beautiful details and touches in every corner. The yard is absolutely fantastic and the LOCATION IS UNBELIEVABLE. It is close/walking distance to everything.
Again, Susan, thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable weekend. Hope you have a wonderful rest of your summer!
This past spring, I rented the Captain WM House to host my sister's bridal shower and it was absolutely perfect!! The best part was the look on her face as we arrived and walked through the house. Besides having an amazing location with a view of the river and walking to Main St, the house is beautifully decorated with a really fun feel.
The house is absolutely perfect for hosting a small get together. Everything you could possibly need, from serving dishes to umbrellas to dog leashes, are provided. And beyond some fresh flowers and table settings, there was no need to decorate, the house itself was lovely backdrop.
Sue was great to work with, especially considering we were planning on short notice. We even ended up booking first one, and then the second carriage house next door as time got closer for friends who were traveling to the shower and Susan quickly responded to our requests. The carriage house suites are also extremely charming.
The Captain William Morgan House was a wonderful weekend away. We hope we can return again soon!
This was my family's second stay here, our first stay was for my wedding week in August 2013. Both times we had a great time. The house is spacious and well appointed, the backyard is beautiful with lots of space for the kids to play and being able to walk down the street to downtown Mystic is such a perk. We will definitely be back again!
My friends and I stayed at the Captain Morgan House for the weekend. We all enjoyed the house and especially the backyard. Close to everything Mystic and only a drive away from the casinos. Great energy and great correspondence with owner. Thanks, Sue!
