The House itself is a very contemporary ranch style house, quite different from anything else in the area. The interior is well furnished with comfortable living spaces and artwork. The house is bisected by a grand hallway that runs through its center and fills the entire space with natural sunlight light pouring in from the large windows. Whether it's a warm summer day or a winter's eve, there is always a view out into the the dense woods, full of wildlife. The whole area is very quiet, far enough away from major roads that you won't hear anything but the wind blowing through the trees. Guests are free to make use of all the home's appliances and kitchen. More details can be found in the amenities section.

The house is the home of 2 cats and a non shedding dog. During rentals the cats are moved to their kitty vacation house located on the property and a family members checks on them daily.

The house is the ideal starting point of any day trip. We are minutes from scenic Branford center, home of many historic sites, cute shops and some of the best restaurants in the area. With the Long Island Sound only minutes from the center, it's perfect for a lazy day at the beach. Branford's waters are very sheltered, great for swimming and paddle sports. We're also only 15 minutes from New Haven, a bustling city full of excitement. Within New Haven, one can find many artistic sites like the Yale Art Gallery and Peabody Museum. It's also known for some of the best pizza in the world, home of Pepe's, Modern Appizza, and many other traditional brick oven pizzerias. New Haven also has active night life but don't forget that its just a short hour by train from New York city, if you are looking for something bigger. For the outdoor enthusiasts though, be sure to check out Sleeping Giant national state park for some fun, challenging trails and amazing views overlooking New Haven and the Sound.

For foodies, Be sure to check out Pepe's Pizza in New Haven. It and nearby Modern Apizza are widely regarded as some of the best pizzerias on the East coast. This is not your average pizza, new comers will be blown away by the quality ingredients and perfect cooking technique.

For fine dining, be sure to make reservations at Le Petit Cafe. As one of Zaggat's Top 40 restaurants in the US, it's not to be missed. The French-Asian fusion will leave a lasting impression on you and a fixed price menu keeps that impression from lasting on your wallet at just $50 per person. Great for special events and romantic dinners.
