Peaceful Ocean Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this peaceful waterfront cottage. We needed a place far enough away to be a vacation but close enough to have easy access to home. This cottage met all of our needs. It is nestled away in Mason Island. The area is somewhat wooded yet also on the waterfront. We felt we had the best of both worlds! It was private and quiet. There were 4-8 of us at any given time. It had a very cozy feel but it was by no means small. There was room enough for all of us and some to spare. We never got in each other's way. One of our favorite things to do was to sit in the porch and gaze at the panoramic view of the water. The cottage was fully equipped with anything you could possibly need. There was easy access to downtown Mystic, restaurants, sight seeing. The owners were extremely gracious and very quick to respond if we had a question. We truly had a great time and would recommend the classic waterfront cottage. It gave our family the ability to spend some quality time together and it was everything we had hoped for.

The cottage is located on a private island, connected to the mainland by a small bridge. The area is lush with woods and wildlife and a delightful place for walking and biking. It is a very safe, family-oriented place, with many families having returned here for generations. there is a strong sense of community but also as much privacy as you would like.

The town of Mystic is easily accessible even by bike, and is quaint and picture-pretty. You will find everything you need in the immediate neighborhood, including fantastic restaurants, the Mystic Seaport (a whaling village museum) and an impressive aquarium.

Just up the coast north of Westerly, RI, you will find the stunning sandy beaches of Rhode Island - just a half hour's drive away.

For shoppers, New London and neighboring towns have all the malls and stores you will need.

Babysitters are easy to find.
