The property and area offers something special for everyone. Many guests have such a great time that they return each year.

Why Angela chose Niantic

Unlimited number of things to do in the area, something to please everyone. House over looks the gentle tidal river and sprawling marsh land. Watch the trains pass over the river, in the distance.

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.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for everyone to stay. We had 2 families and there was plenty of room. Lots of towels, blankets, and whatever we needed. We cooked in the kitchen and couldn't have asked for more. There is a beautiful view at sunset and sunrise.

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!
