Family-friendly cottage in Old Saybrook
The Cottage was chosen as one of the top ten unique places to stay in Ct. 'Awesome Cottage! Great Owner! Absolutely loved this house and will definitely plan on staying here again! My husband is originally from Connecticut and his entire family still lives there. Traditionally we stay with family when we visit but I decided to rent a house this trip so we could entertain and have everyone over. This house was charming and very comfortable. It was my mother in laws 80th birthday and I had about 25 family members over for a dinner party. Every person who entered the house commented on what a terrific cottage it was. Having the upstairs loft was a perfect space for my son to have his privacy and a place to relax. He (and I) loved having the wireless internet connection that worked great! The outdoor area was very private and the deck was a wonderful space to hang out and kick back. Everyone really enjoyed the art work throughout the house and commented that it provided warmth and character to the cottage. Lastly I want to share my comments on the owner Yvette, she was very prompt in her responses to me and a real pleasure to work with through the rental process. Yvette thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was the most memorable visit to Connecticut that our family has ever had. Take care, my best, Julianna (This was the first time I ever rented a home online or used the Home Away site, it was a great experience!)' Response I have been renting my cottage since 2006. I own the lot next door, a tiny wooded lot, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt home has a large deck, front porch, fireplace, I provide linens, spices, paper towels, trash bags. This is the home I raised my boys in. It was always filled with love.... ----------------------------------- Home Away site, it was a great experience!) Our Beach house is tucked away in a quiet private Connecticut shoreline neighborhood. Bike or flip-flop to our private beach and fishing pier. Our Cottage boasts a large, private, yard that affords lively games of horseshoes or croquet. Nap or read in a hammock or relax with a cold refreshment under the gigantic trees. Back deck offers a picnic table and grill for hotdogs, hamburgers or lobster. Cottage Amenities - Fresh and Vibrant Decor, books to read, sea treasures, fresh linens, coffee maker, teapot, dishes. Your flip-flops are a must! The Old Saybrook Town beach is Amazing and within biking distance. The 'Kate' offers sophisticated entertainment. Penny Lane Pub is a lively Irish watering hole and Dock and Dine is situated on the waterfront for sea-fare dining. Stroll downtown and browse the plethora of Antique Stores and Seaside Treasure Shops where Katherine Hepburn was often spotted. Wander over the causeway and down RT.1 and keep exploring the Connecticut Shore!

    So happy in The Cottage

    Everything about The Cottage is magical. The home is surprisingly large, the location ideal. One can make home-cooked meals, or dine out. Cannot say enough about this vacation home. Yvette was most attentive, reachable by phone, and has a gem for anyone’s get-away. Thank you, Yvette.

    4/5 Good

      Short but sweet stay

      We did a short overnight stay following an evening event nearby. The four of us were very comfortable and would have enjoyed a longer stay.

      5/5 Excellent

        Beautiful Artistic Beach House

        My husband and I had a great stay at Yvette’s house. She was so easy to communicate with and she truly wanted to make sure we had a great time. Plus we were able to take our dog with us which made for a perfect weekend getaway. The private beach which is walking distance was so beautiful 😍

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely cute cottage!

          We had an awesome time and this was a perfect getaway to celebrate all of us being cancer free!

          4/5 Good

            Enjoyed our stay!

            Cute place with sweet decorations. I enjoyed the personal touch of the amateur paintings and the fun wall (which you will see!) in the kitchen. We really enjoyed the sun porch one night and the back deck every day. There are neighbors but it felt very private at the end of the private road and thanks to all of the beautiful bushes. The second floor had a queen bed and a trundle. FYI, the stairs going up are steep. I was nervous on them, let alone having a toddler. Notes: there are beautiful skylights in the kitchen and second floor bedroom. We got some foam board from the dollar store to block the light in order to sleep as the skylights are directly over the queen bed upstairs. I can imagine coming back here next year. If we do I will bring extra towels (low stock which were also small in size) as well as extra toilet paper which we would have ran out of if we didn’t adventure every day. Thank you for the hospitality!
