    Comfortable & cozy - perfect for a weekend get away.

    The cottage was super comfortable & clean. I would definitely recommend for a weekend away. It’s in a great location - close by to Mystic and Harkness Memorial Park.

      Comfortable birthday weekend stay

      Donna's home is comfortable for 4 people. The kitchen has everything that we needed. We cooked most of our meals there and had no issues at all. The grill gave way to a delicious bbq on Saturday night. Neighborhood is very quiet. My little one enjoyed the yard the power Jeep Donna kindly allowed us to use. We went to Skippers for lunch, so good and the view was a plus. Dunkin donuts and Stop & Shop are about 15 minutes away. We went to Mystic the day we checked out, 1 5 minutes North. Crystal mall is nearby but not much there. We enjoyed my mothers birthday peaceful weekend. We did encounter an issue and Donna promptly replied & provided help.

      5/5 Excellent

        Summer vacation

        Cute house drank my coffee in the morning in the front on the Adirondack chair, a 20 min walk to public small beach. 2 min ride to boat launch where we kayaked and found a cute island to hang out on. Close to Niantic where we are and shipped I Main st. Can’t wait to go back!

          Lovely Weekend Getaway

          The Waterford house was absolutely perfect for a long weekend getaway! Everything was clean and there were plenty of towels and toiletries, which we really appreciated. Donna was a fantastic host, going out of her way to ensure that we had everything we needed. Any questions we had, she answered immediately! Perfect location, within 10 minutes of beaches and fantastic restaurants. Would absolutely rent again!
