Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more perfect place for having our family come together for our daughters wedding. The house is spacious and easy to relax in; having a bedroom with en suite bathroom on the first floor made it super easy for the grandparents to not have to climb stairs. The backyard is simply breathtaking, and made for a fantastic BBQ space. The owner was very helpful and could not have been nicer, she's maintained the house in great condition and all communications were prompt and straightforward. Without any hesitation we can say this experience exceeded our expectations and we're thankful for having found such a perfect place for us.

Perfect house & location for Coast Guard Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house and location to consider for CGA graduation, parents weekend, etc. Lots of room and plenty of charm. Huge yard and deck to enjoy if the weather is nice. First floor bedroom was perfect so grandparents didn't have to negotiate stairs. Fully stocked with everything you need and the grocery is right down the road for everything else. Thank you Judith!

A MEMORABLE STAY AT A UNIQUE HOUSE AND PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our planned “gal pal” getaway. It is a charming older home; clean, comfortable and well-maintained, with lots of different rooms for people to gather or sit by themselves to read or reflect. It was decorated beautifully for the Christmas season, including a tree in the living room. Judith, the owner, greeted us and showed us all around the house, which was very helpful, and she told us she was available if we had any questions or needed help with anything.

My friends and I sat in that living room by the fireplace, until the wee hours of the morning, feeling very cozy, warm and safe on a VERY snowy Connecticut night. (Of course, the wine we brought helped, too!)

Partially due to the snow, and partially due to the fact that we hadn’t seen each other in a while, we stayed close to “home” all weekend, foregoing events in nearby Mystic and surrounding areas. Instead, with only a short drive to the nearby super market, it was great fun to work in the beautiful and well-equipped kitchen making all our meals together, drinking wine and sharing stories, laughing and having a great time.

There is a large meditation labyrinth on the property – something you don’t find everywhere, offering a unique experience. A friend of mine who stayed at the house for a labyrinth retreat in October recommended it to me. I was sold after they described their stay, and how much they loved the house and the property, which is especially beautiful in the Fall season. I am excited to come back when in warmer weather to explore the grounds, (including the labyrinth). There is a lovely deck, a grill; and a wood outdoor fireplace. We are thinking we’d like to book again in June.

The house truly has a wonderful spirit. I think Gracious and elegant are apt descriptions. I would also add “quaint” and “vintage New England.” Personally, when it comes to sharing time with old friends, I would much rather stay at a place like this that feels like “home” instead of some staid hotel. I cannot imagine having a weekend like the one we had at the local Hilton. It was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Thanks, Judith! We WILL be back!

Spacious House

  • 5 of 5

This house has so much room. Our party had plenty of space to be able to either gather together or spread out. It had everything we needed and it was wonderful to have enough bedrooms with comfortable beds for everyone. Thank you very much Judith!

Fall Wedding Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this house with range of just four people up to eleven people overnight in the house during the period (12th individual could not join us due to hurricane hitting the gulf coast). Judith walked us through the mechanics of the house upon arrival to be sure we knew how things operated and that was very good. The living room was spacious enough for all us to gather together and and carry on conversations yet there were rooms plenty to separate off when required (one individual needed to take MBA on-line exam while on vacation). We put all the bedrooms to use and no complaints on beds. The one adult on the rollaway bed in the sitting area had the only complaint - but only needed that bed for one night. Location is close to Mystic and not far from the I-95 served us well for the various trips for rehersal / wedding / and following morning brunch at the Casino 35 minutes away. We stopped at a Costco in Medford before arriving at the house - but there is nearby shopping making that convenient as well. All in all very pleasant set up for the family of all adults that stayed at the house.
