An amazing experience
This cottage really helped to make our holiday over in Conneticut a very memorable one. We were over for a week in May to attend our sisters graduation and the cottage was a wonderful place to celebrate with other family members. It was beautifully and simply done inside and had everything we needed for our stay - there was even a small boat and kayak for us to make use of. The owners Bill and Maria were incredibly helpful and encouraged my sister to visit the property beforehand to see what all we might need. But the most amazing thing about it was the setting, waking up to that view every morning was fantastic, and helped make up for the fact we were all jet lagged and kept waking up incredibly early! The area surrounding the cottage was also lovely and great for taking walks and runs in, with small beaches and wooded areas and a tiny little play area which our two year old loved. We had a couple of evenings were we invited some of my sisters friends over after the graduation, one of whom was from Conneticut and claimed it was one of the nicest views in the State. We did visit a few places around the area, and there is plenty to do, Guilford and Branford had loads of lovely restaurants and coffee places which we took advantage of, but the most enjoyable thing about the holiday was just hanging around together in the cottage. There was a small private beach which was ideal for us with young children who had a blast playing in the sand. I feel we found a real gem, and Im glad we found it when we did as they have only recently put this property forward as a holiday rental, and given a couple of years I'd say it will be constantly booked out by people living nearer by who could more easily return. Unfortunately for us we live too far away to be back anytime soon, but if we did this would be our first choice for accommodation.
