traveler reviews for this mystic house rental

Very peaceful and quiet

Review submitted: June 5, 2013   Date of arrival: June 3, 2013

This is our third time staying here as we enjoy the the peaceful and quiet location. The house has everything you could possibly need and is very comfortable. The house is well maintained and clean. The owners live just down the road and are friendly and helpful. The surrounding woods have nice hiking trails and some amazing historical features. You are also very close to many surrounding area attractions and shopping, grocery stores and restaurants. We highly recommend this hidden gem if visiting the area!

Convenient yet private

Review submitted: June 1, 2012   Date of arrival: May 11, 2012

We stayed in this wonderful house when we came to the area for my son's graduation from the US Coast Guard Academy in nearby New London. The house is minutes away from everything yet very private. We were able to go back and forth to all the activities and graduation celebrations then come back and unwind in this peaceful setting. The caretakers are marvelous people and have thought of everything to make your stay here enjoyable. We had various family members coming and going all week and were very comfortable here. While our stay focused on grad-week activities, we were able to spend some time exploring the trails and rock formations on the property, and going to some of the area attractions. My husband is disabled (but not wheelchair bound) and he had no problems remaining safe and comfortable on the main floor. We had two young children (ages 6 and 7) and they had a blast exploring, lots of room to run. I read another review that was disappointed no play sets for kids, but I felt this was a plus! The kids did more exploring and imagination games. Outdoor games were available, yet the boys had more fun without them! The nearby grocery store had a huge selection of fresh foods and cut our dining bill down considerably. The price on this rental can't be beat and it is absolutely charming!If I ever have the opportunity to return to the area I will definitely stay here again!

A Magical Place

Review submitted: September 13, 2011   Date of arrival: September 2, 2011

Great house at end of mile long dirt road. Very private, pond with bass, walking to see stone dwellings, firepit for campfire. We had 9 people (3 children) and were very comfortanble. The kitchen was fitted out with better cookware than my own. Very clean but older. Not for people who like cushy hotels. Great for kids to collect bugs, look for deer, pick grapes, look at the stars. very close to Mystic and only minutes from the Nautilus Museum.
Some obstacles for disabled people...a few steps.
