**Charming**New England Historical Ppty Ideal for Weddings&Large Groups w/garden

Call for winter Specials..

Description from the owner

This unique property, located near the banks of the Oyster River, and conveniently on the Boston Post Road (US 1), was built in 1795 by Nathaniel Clark, a 4th generation descendant of Captain Nathaniel Clark, a famous local seaman. It was at a time when General William Hart built one of the earliest houses in Saybrook, the first settlement on the southern shore of Connecticut. During the Revolution, Hart led the First Regiment of Connecticut Light Horse Militia to Danbury to take part in Tryon’s raid. He and his brothers armed their merchant ships and served this country in numerous privateering forays against the British.

One of the important assets of this 'Old New England' Property is it's very large and beautiful garden, surrounding entirely the three buildings that include the very large main house, a Jelly shed attached barn and Corn Crib,providing multiple places to sit together, picnic, read or enjoy a nice sunbath. It is of course an ideal place for large parties such as weddings and other ceremonies, for which first class catering can be organized with our local chef and partner, at a very affordable cost.

The greenhouse is yet another exceptional feature. It is a one-of-a-kind and particularly pleasant place to sit and enjoy the view of the garden, surrounded by secular oak and other high trees, providing a nice shade during the summer time.

It was featured by the HGTV Design channel and thereafter the Property was selected for the shooting of the film The Word, 2013 WINNER of BEST DRAMATIC FEATURE (Manhattan Film Festival) and 2013 WINNER – SILVER ACE AWARD (Las Vegas Film Festival), scheduled to come soon to the theatres. See here the picture of one of the scenes of the film that was shot in the greenhouse.

Entering through the front wrap around porch, gives you already a glimpse of the multiple nice places where you can sit together, relax and enjoy the surroundings and the exceptional settings of this property.

You then access an entrance hall with a staircase to the second floor, one door to the very large and nicely decorated master bedroom with a King Size bed, one door to the second bedroom of the first floor with a full size bed, and the third door leading to the large living room from which you can access conveniently the first bathroom (with toilet) and the cozy and typical dining room, next to the kitchen, where up to 22 guests can fit with 3 tables, and 14 guest can sit comfortably.

In winter and during mid-seasons, the very attractive fire place feature - works with real wood ! - makes the place a very pleasant retreat for long week-ends or indoors gatherings.

Accessing the second floor by 2 different staircases, our guests will find there a second bathroom with bathtub, shower and toilet, a very large studio-bedroom with 3 twin beds, a second bedroom with a full and a twin beds and a third bedroom with 2 full beds.

The owners have given a particular attention to the quality of the linen and to the bedding to provide you with a very comfortable night sleep. The cleaning is done by a team of professionals.

The Fall season is spectacular in new England. Visiting the small typical towns of Old Lyme, Mystic, Essex, Chester, and their surrounding forests, or driving along the Connecticut River will create memories forever.

Old Saybrook, for that reason, is the hometown of many celebrities, and more particularly of famous actress Katherine Hepburn, whose mansion is nowadays a place to visit.

Because it is located on the Long Island Sound, in Summer, Old Saybrook is well-known for its different sandy beaches.Harvey's Beach and Town Beach are available for public use, both providing clean facilities with very small crowds.

Need a break from the beach ? Stop to dine at some fine restaurants nearby. Travel just a little further and visit Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport, take a ride with your kids across the countryside, see Beautiful New England the old-fashioned way on the Essex Historic steam train, enjoy a cruise on the Connecticut River or enjoy an evening at the Mohegan Casino. Peddle along the ocean side at sunset, head to the shops along Main Street or take a ten-minute drive to the shopping large outlets in Westbrook and Clinton.

Surrounded by the Long Island Sound and the Conneticut River, Old Saybrook is full of adventure for families looking for a getaway.

Old Saybrook is conveniently located at equal distance of New York and Boston by car, via I-95.

The property itself is a short ride from exit 57 (or 56 coming up eastwards).

The closest airport is New Haven, a 20 minutes ride by car. Direct flights are also available from Hartford Bradley Int'l, 45 minutes away, and from the various airports servicing New-York. Providence and Boston Int'l Airports are closer than the New York Airports. These can be reached by train and then shuttles. Old Saybrook is also directly connected by train to Newark Int'l Airport.

My Guests describe the Property best ! :

'This house was the perfect place for me and my siblings and parents, as well as spouses and grand kids, to stay together while in town celebrating our favorite uncle's 80th birthday! It ended up being a wonderful family reunion of our own, too! The accommodations were both comfortable and plentiful! Everything we needed was provided, and it was easy to settle in immediately. There is a wonderful sense of peace, love, and happiness about the place that is almost tangible. The landlord also recommended a wonderful caterer who went above and beyond to prepare three absolutely delicious meals for us - which abundantly provided leftovers which we enjoyed throughout our stay. My family kept thanking me for all the work I did to pull it all together... but in truth, the homeowner and caterer were the ones who took care of all the details! Sitting around the table playing games, laughing and talking in front of the fireplace, sitting in the gorgeous sun porch, enjoying the yard, swinging under the tremendous oak tree, taking walks to nearby beaches... our family connected in special ways that never could have occurred had we stayed in a hotel. I highly recommend this house, the landlord (she rents several other homes as well), and the caterer. Not only was the price reasonable for my family to afford, the excellent customer service we received made it obvious that they both share a passion for serving their guests.'

Why J ST PIERRE LLC Y.Fournier BH chose Old Saybrook

I saw so much potential in this beautiful home that had been passed down from so many generations. It was a labor of love to turn this into a getaway full of colorful and soulful art collections, interesting finds, and modern comforts. I strived to preserve the character of the floors, the stairs, the rooms and the many nooks and crannies that make this house so unique. The house is bright and colorful yet still maintains its rustic charm.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Yvette,

Your home worked perfectly for us this past weekend. We slept comfortably, enjoyed breakfast outside under the trees and had the chance to stay together as a group in one house. It was perfect. Thank you for all your correspondence and for sharing your space with us. If and when we gather again to visit our parents we will be in touch.



Take care, especially as you navigate illness.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

An incredibly charming and quaint place to stay. It is small enough to be the perfect size for a couple, but also large enough to fit a large group. It is a lovely place to stay, and I highly recommend it!

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was lovely and welcoming. The house was equipped with everything we needed from the bathroom to the kitchen. While we had a large group of people, no one had trouble finding a place to sleep and there was enough space for us to get together to eat and hang out. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone in need of a getaway or a place to stay in the area.

Wonderfully Hospitable New England Home

  • 5 of 5

I was amazed at how beautiful the property was, set up in a quaint fashion amongst the trees, away from the main thouroughfare. The inside of the house has similar charm. Nice amenities, clean, and very comfortable. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.

Beautiful Charming House

  • 5 of 5

As a ski and snowboard team, we were looking for a place to stay near Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort. Not only is this place very near the resort but it is also a gorgeous house. We could tell that the owner put alot of love and care into the place. Everything was immaculate, well kept and the house is well stocked. Plenty of linens and blankets for everyone! In addition, the owner is responsive and kind. A great weekend overall. Highly recommended.

Challenging public golf courses are nearby, most within a 30 minute drive. Old Saybrook offers Fenwick Golf Course located on the point off of Long-Island Sound where the late Katharine Hepburn resided. Other things close by include the Essex Steam Train and River Boat cruise where you can tour the Connecticut River.
