The apartment was in a great location. We enjoyed watching the wildlife (geese, turtles, etc.) in the stream next door. We also enjoyed picking up breakfast at Village Bagel across the street. The apartment was comfortable for our family of 4. The host was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Cathy, we enjoyed being your host!
Awesome Space, Great Host
The property is great and was lots of fun. My Daughter graduated from Fairfield University and we stayed for 4 nights. It was so much more convenient than a hotel. Gerard the host was great! the loft is very clean and well appointed. Air conditioning works well. The wildlife at the dam was an added bonus. A really cool space to stay.
Thank you for your kind words Frank. Your family was a joy to host!
Charming accommodations, great location!
From the moment we arrived we knew the Old Sasco Mill was something special. Owner Gerard was as welcoming and gracious as could be. Immaculate and inviting the apartment is "smart wired" and comfortable. The only drawback to some may be street noise but it was not an issue for us. We will return!
Thank you for your kind words Susan. We enjoyed hosting for you and welcome back anytime!
Fabulous Getaway in Connecticut !
Our stay was great .. a few bumps along the way but all ended well . Gerard was there and supportive and helpful to us at every turn .He was responsive to any questions we had and even stopped to show us around the grounds when we arrived. The apartment was clean and beautiful and picture perfect. IT was very well equipped and modern . Close to a lot of great stores and beaches . Our 2 mini pinchers loved the vacation trip as well . We would be happy to stay again . Thanks Gerard !
We enjoyed hosting your stay Karen. You are always welcome!
Unique lodging combining old world charm and new world technology.
I found myself simply astonished with how this rental property combines old world charm and new world technology. The impeccably decorated interior, beautifully restored loft studio complimenting the mill’s original “bones”, and a wonderful overseer (Gerard) came together to create a welcoming and cozy living space.
However, after reading through the previous five renters’ reviews; I feel I need to acknowledge one important element of this rental property which no-one seemed to note.
Post Road, on which this property sits, is a busy, car-occupied thoroughfare. The old Sasco Mill Pond property sits a sidewalk’s length from Post Rd. I am, unfortunately, one of those humans who fall into the category of light sleeper. The street noise went well into the night, and then began again with early morning commuter traffic. We tried using the sound system, asking it to play “white noise”, but without turning the volume up loud; we still were hearing cars and trucks out on the street.
Unfortunately, this coloured our stay. In good faith, as I review our experience; I cannot give our stay a five star rating. I would, however, give four and one half stars if the web review site allowed.
With a good set of earplugs, I would return to this property. The location and amenities of the lodging offer a lot for the guest seeking to enjoy the Southport/Westport area.
Thank you Francesco. We are planning to do some special renovations to the space to significantly reduce any outside noise. The only reason we have not completed this, is that this location is so popular, it is booked back to back for months. We appreciate your comments and that you were such a wonderful guest.
Lovely space and time!
We had an absolutely wonderful time! The space was beautiful and Gerard was so hospitalitable. We look forward to coming back!
Thank you Griffin! You were wonderful guests and we enjoyed hosting for you. We welcome you back anytime!
