Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to get a quick note off to you regarding our recent stay at Creek House. I could sum it up with only three words---"it was great!!! But that wouldn't be doing it justice. Your place was comfortable, clean, spacious and had that old fashioned feel of staying at "grandmas house" but with updated amenities. I would highly recommend this to friends or anyone looking for a family gathering spot with plenty to do and see.

The only complaint I have was that the week was too short.

Hope to make plans to return next summer for a longer stay.

Great location for visiting the Coast Guard Academy!

  • 5 of 5

I brought a total of 9 people to this home and it was everything we hoped it would be. First and foremost, it was exactly as advertised and the home owner correspondence was flawless. I plan to make this an annual (if not semi-annual) stop on the way to introduce high school students to the Academy.

This home was a huge reason our trip was so successful and enjoyable. Very cozy place!

Fantastic Property Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults and 3 children 10 years old) absolutely loved this property. The first floor bedroom was perfect for the “elders” and the second floor bedroom with bunks (1 twin slid under bottom bunk) was perfect for the 3 kids and their parents while the remaining adults made use of the other 3 bedrooms. The history of the house is fascinating and it wasn’t too long before we felt like it was “ours” and we had been staying there for years. Thanks so much for sharing this home. It met all our expectations and then some and we all can’t wait to return.

A quiet charming respite

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of spending a week recently at the Creek House and it was a delightful experience.

The home has a tremendous amount of character and all the comforts of home.

It was clean, bright and spacious and located right on the banks of a

Safe salt water inlet, perfect for families.

Angela was a delight to work with and most accommodating.

A perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature yet convenient to Niantic and other quaint shoreline towns.

I hope to return next summer with my family and enjoy possibly even more time at the Creek House
