My stay at Zen Cottage was wonderful - so much so the I've already booked return visits. My mother has recently moved into a nearby Senior Residence, and Zen Cottage is a short distance from there. After traveling the world on business for many years, I decided long ago that when traveling for pleasure, I much prefer a private rental to a hotel. I've had fabulous VRBO and AirB&B stays in Berlin, Munich, Sarajevo, Ljubliana, Paris, Strasbourg - and now, in Branford! Zen Cottage is up there with the best of them. The owners have created a cozy, serene cottage, equipped with every convenience - full kitchen, comfortable beds, Wi-fi, ROKU - and stunning views of the Farm River. I used Uber to get around, and never waited more than 10 minutes for a pick-up. Mother had her version of "Ferris Buellers Day Off", and after a trip to Guilford, a dinner of Irish Bacon & Eggs, and 2 Judy Dench movies, decided to spend the night. She loved the place. I'm a longtime associate of a nearby monastery, and I'll be back in May, after a 4 day stay in heavenly silence, to enjoy Zen cottage with my mother.
