This is a No Smoking house, minimum age of 30 required to rent/sign rental agreement & sorry no events.

**** As of February 2016 Homeaway has started charging a "service fee" which they collect 4-10% of the rental and keep themselves. This is not my fee nor do I agree with this charge since I am already paying homeaway a lot of $$ to list my property on this site. Don't let this fee discourage you please contact me directly if you are interested in renting ****** If you decide to go through homeaway payments using your credit card please keep in mind the credit card company will keep 3% of your security return.

Why Owner chose East Hampton

This property I purchased for a house flip. A few weeks into this project I fell in love with it and knew I couldn't sell it. So I spent the next 8 months ripping apart the entire house, redesigning the layout, moving walls, replacing all plumbing & electrical adding state of the art AC & Heating systems. I put this house together the way I wanted, using only the best materials. I personally designed & installed all the tile, marble, kitchen cabinets, windows/doors, outside deck, everything down to picking the paint colors. The house came out fantastic and it is here for you to enjoy. 8 out of 10 people said the pictures don't do it justice.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits this home has to offer... 1) A heliport. Fly in if you wish or have a helicopter come take you for a ride. 2) Privacy. No neighbors, not even across the river. Complete solitude & only a 5 minute ride to shopping, gas & restaurants. 3) Unbelievable panoramic views. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun set directly over the other side of the river. After that gather around the fire pit on the deck. 4) The beach. Take a walk down the staircase to the river. Here I have a rowboat, canoe, 7' float island, fire pit, picnic table, chairs, propane grill for you to use. 5) You can bring your own boat to use on the river during your stay. Enjoy!

Lived up to High Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay for an extended weekend at this great home on the river. A few things that stood out:

*The view is amazing. Nice and high up, clear view up and down the river, great at all times of day.

*The deck is spacious, well maintained, and is a great spot for the aforementioned view

*The privacy. It's not a situation where the pictures on the listing are taken so you can't see the neighbors house right through the trees, or it's just outside the frame. The neighbors really aren't close, and just plain aren't able to be viewed from on the property. That really gives you that feeling of getting away from the world for a while.

Otherwise, it's really everything you could expect. House is very nice inside, well-maintained, sleeping arrangements are as advertised. There are adequate pots/pans/utensils for cooking, washer/dryer, etc.

We would stay again for sure.

  • 5 of 5

Every year I plan a family vacation for my grown children, grandchildren an sons-in-law. They all rated this vacation house the best yet! Something for everyone for sure. House was spectacular! Private beach for fishing boating and whatever! Location served everyone needs. The decks are Incredible! Within a 30 minute drive to ocean, shopping, casinos etc. Something for everyone. Actually cooked most meals at home with this wonderful deck and peaceful surroundings. You will NOT be dissappointed.

Great spot !!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to get together with my family from other states. Would like to stay here in the summer to utilize the water and boats but it was very nice. The porch is BEAUTIFUL but a little chilly to enjoy. Great view. Would stay here again. Only complaint which is minor is I wished it was a little better stocked. We had to buy soap and a couple other things but like I said, minor things. We would stay again for sure !

Lovely home fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding. Since it rained a little, we were able to take wonderful photos from the deck overlooking the river. The deck is a fabulous place for a cocktail party or dinner. If you are having a wedding st St Clements a Castle, the house is minutes away. Quick trip to Middletown too.

PERFECT !

  • 5 of 5

In deed this place is magnificent! My friends and I just instantly fell in love with the place. Too much space, a new Yorkers' haven.

The place is well maintained, very clean. The deck with fire pit is perfect place to witness the beauty of the sky and the stunning view of the river.

This place just give me a reason to go back to CT. Can not wait to book this place again.

New to the rental market in 2011. This property is located just 3 minutes or 2.5 miles from Saint Clements Castle.

Going South is a short 8 minute drive which brings you to a beautiful historic district on the river in East Haddam where the Historic Goodspeed Opera house is located. Here live theater takes place all summer long. Next store is the Gelston House, enjoy fine dining on the river or just sit back and relax at La Vita Gustosa's Italian restaurant.

North 10 minutes brings you to Middletown for shopping, restaurants and cinema.

West 5 minutes brings you to East Hampton. Here there is a lake, restaurants, 24 hr. Citgo and Stop n Shop.

A little further drive East (aprox. 20-30 min) will bring you to Mystic Aquarium, Foxwoods & Mogehan Sun Casino.
