Living on Long Island, New York I frequently travel to Connecticut to prepare The Grand Victorian for it's visitors. It gives me great pleasure to read our guest book and find that many great memories were made in this 'Magnificient Old Lady'.

Walter West or Linda Posillico purchased this house in 2006

Why Walter West or Linda Posillico chose Connecticut Shore

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Walter and Linda for letting us stay at your house. It's a great place to spend a summer vacation with family and friends. We not only loved the historic but modern house with everything you need, but also the location near beaches and towns like Mystic, Noank and Newport. We even went sailing at the yacht club!

Great Memorial Day/ 50th Anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay this past Memorial Day... the house is very well located, great to sit on the porch or the front lawn and watch the waterfront or go down to the cabana and enjoy the sand between your toes. Everything is well equipped; the kitchen has everything you could ask for and the house has plenty of towels, bedding, etc.. The bed's were all comfortable, too, and the bathrooms all clean. We had 13 people ranging from 11-76. There was space for us to all come together, but there were plenty of alternatives if you wanted a little quite reading time. Third floor game room was an added plus.

A lovely experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. The house is in great shape yet still has the old Victorian feel. The cabana, while a few minutes walk from the house, is right on the beach and well equipped. This house is, in fact, one of the best equipped that we have ever rented. The owners are friendly and flexible - we felt very much at home.

To top it off, Niantic is a great little town and is a 20 minute walk from the house. We highly recommend the Grand Victorian for a summer get-away!

Unbelievable Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a guys weekend with old friends. The pictures of this house and beach do not do it justice. There was plenty of space for a big group. Every accommodation we could have wished for was available. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful and helped make this a perfect weekend. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun beach getaway.Thanks again!
