'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!)'
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!)

Its quiet, clean, I own the lot next door, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt rd... home has a large deck, front sun porch, working fireplace, I provide linens, spices, kitchen & dining ware.
Great area, charming neighborhood of beach cottages. I made it colorful and decorated with interesting art. The kitchen back splash is a hand-made compilation of broken glass, shells and interesting finds…. Nice deck, huge pine tree, perennial gardens make for a charming yard. Boat mooring, beach.....Fireplace.
very nice house in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is well-equipped and the large private yard is excellent for entertainment. short walk to the beach. would definitely stay again.
We were a bit disappointed with our stay. It is always the little things that count. When I saw the pictures of the cottage I was overwhelmed with what I thought were small touches like the fresh flowers. We arrived and it was quite cold and we were told there was going to be a key under a cushion just in case the lock box didn't open because of the cold... but there wasn't one...we relied on the notion that the lock box would not be cold and would open but if it hadn't we would have had a real problem. There were no welcoming touches like fresh flowers anywhere. The House Rules were posted quite clearly however. No call from the owner at all for the two days we were there asking if everything was okay or if we needed anything. There was no soap for the bath; no tea or coffee...the little things that make one feel welcome. Even after our stay there was no follow up from the owner at all even though I think she manages other properties right there. We could have not even been there and she wouldn't have known. It didn't make us feel welcome at all. The cottage is sweet and was clean but I want to feel at least welcomed and I didn't.
Loved the house - comfortable and quiet. Very happy with the service - we had a miscommunication about arrival, which was resolved immediately! We only needed to stay 1 night but would consider a return in the summer. It would be a lovely place to spend a week.
I had a great time at this cute little house. The attention to detail on comfort was notable - there were even fresh flowers on the table when we arrived! It was a great space for a few friends to gather and relax. My only recommendation for the owner to provide a bit more information on access to the private beach - we weren't sure if ID was required or if as guests we would be allowed on it. Otherwise, a fabulous stay!
The cottage was a delight. The decor is light and charming. Plenty of room for the 4 of us.
The deck and backyard is wonderful for entertaining. Location is perfect for sightseeing- Newport and Boston were easy destinations.
Yvette has take.n the time to supply full amenities. She makes your stay easy .
We would certainly my return.
We stayed here over New Years. The place is cute, quaint and decorated so nicely. It had everything we needed in a quiet location. Enjoyed the fireplace very much on some cold, rainy nights. They even had a Christmas tree up, artfully decorated with painted fish! Owner was a joy to deal with! I hope we can come back in the summer and really enjoy the beachy atmosphere!!
