About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This lovely and expansive family home is located in the desirable east end of Mason's Island. There are sweeping views of Long Island Sound, Enders Island and Fisher's Island. Sailboats and sea life abound. If inspired one can move from sitting on the deck to paddling a kayak in these protected waters in a matter of seconds. It takes about an hour to circumnavigate the island.

This is a waterfront home, not a beachfront home, as the CT shoreline is quite rocky, but there is very nice swimming off the dock when the tide is not at its lowest. Williams Beach, great for small children is about a mile away and the RI beaches are pretty close, about a 30 minute ride. Enjoy the outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water after a swim.

The home is available to rent for several weeks in the summer and much of the off season. The spring and fall seasons on the water are spectacular. Celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas in this home is very convenient for families spread across the northeast as the dining room table comfortably seats ten people. Snowy weekends in the winter besides being beautiful are particularly peaceful. For this reason many groups return year after year.

This house is ideal for for families who are interested in a relaxed setting for a vacation or long weekend or for old friends gathering to reconnect. The home is close to the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, the casinos, wineries and the Rhode Island beaches. There are two golf courses with public access locally. Often ignored are the excellent fishing opportunities, both party boats and charters are available locally. Catches include fluke, striped bass, bluefish, sea bass but also tuna and shark for those willing to venture offshore.

This home is in a very quiet, gated residential community/property association. This property association places considerable restrictions on those in the community and therefore those who rent. All need to respect land owner's privacy, personal property lines and sense of space. If your group is inclined to be particularly noisy while outside the home/on the deck or may be gathering for a formal event such as a rehearsal dinner or a cocktail reception, this home is not an appropriate rental. Groups that have friends staying in other local homes can not use our home as a "base of operations" , "sleeps 10 persons" means there is a maximum limit of ten persons in the home. Our neighbors, most of whom are full time residents greatly value their privacy and the sense of serenity that embodies this community; it is important that we as owners respect our neighbor's desire to live in a tranquil setting. Finally, parking at the home is limited to 4 cars.

As mentioned previously there is a dock, yet guests are not permitted to dock or moor their boats at this property. If interested there are a number of local marinas that can provide this service. Jet skis are also not allowed. The dock is just for swimming purposes (and fishing for crabs). Two kayaks are available to explore the shoreline and surrounding islands. Fishing from the kayaks (although not 'fishing kayaks') can be a thrill.

This home is not ideal for many groups, however for the appropriate group (as can be seen in the reviews) this is a wonderful property. As there is no request for a security deposit and to insure the fit is good for the owner and renter alike, each prospective guest needs to be in touch with the owner by phone prior to securing a rental agreement.
