Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Connecticut Shore - Lovely Mystic Retreat

Comfortable, newer 3 bed/2 bath, steps from river and village, yet peaceful

This is a newer home built with a style that fits perfectly in its historic district neighborhood. Comfortable, yet not stuffy, it is very easy to kick back and relax here. You'll love the open front porch for catching sea breezes and relaxing in the afternoon and evening, and the screened rear porch makes a cozy, inviting spot for morning coffee and other meals. The home affords decent privacy on a quiet and beautiful residential street - and in an amazing location - that is, if you like pleasant waterfront walks to and from an active and charming New England maritime village!

Downstairs has an open plan featuring the granite/stainless kitchen, breakfast bar, dining and living areas. On the first floor there is also a full bath and a queen bedroom (rear house entrance only requires three steps from grade to first floor). Upstairs are another queen bedroom, a bedroom with two twin beds and another full bathroom with laundry area.

This home is great for boaters who want to do a little land-lubbing; people with luck good enough for the area's big casinos; families enjoying the local museums, aquarium, etc.; couples, friends and others traveling from the nearby cities of Boston, New York and beyond to savor the local charm; and for couples and families in Mystic for a wedding in the area's beautiful setting. We are open to academic rentals, as well, and will give a lower monthly rate for the longer term.

Stay with us and find your own reasons to love the home, the village of Mystic and all of Southeast Connecticut.

We look forward to hosting your stay!

About John Brice

This is our summer home and we are opening it up to rental Guests for the first time in fall 2014. We love it, so if you are not staying there, we will be!

Why John Brice chose Connecticut Shore

We chose this property because of all the cultural and recreational amenities of southeast Connecticut, and Mystic in particular, as well as the broader region. We also do some boating in Mystic each summer.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Quiet and peaceful, yet with an easy, beautiful walk to the heart of the village of Mystic.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this house and really enjoyed our vacation because we had a place to call home even if only for a few days. Great location (I love Mystic!) and super clean. The house was the most well stocked of any I have ever been in with all the basics, toiletries, cooking equipment and entertainment. The kids loved having someplace to hang out and we were so comfortable we didn't want to leave. Thanks for making our vacation a stress free relaxing time.

Mystic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely, well-maintained home that was close to town, as well as all the sites. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and extras. There was even a high chair and pack-and-play for my granddaughter to use. The owners left us a welcoming note along with wine, cheese, and crackers. I will definitely recommend this listing and hope to return at another time. Terrific!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Mystic, CT for a family weekend wedding. The house was spacious, clean and in a great location. Walking distance to downtown and owners left a list of their favorite places to try out. Would definitely go back.

Girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I, along with our daughters and mother spent four relaxing nights in Mystic. The house was very conveniently located, as well as quiet and cozy. We enjoyed both porches, walked to downtown for shopping, dinner, and coffee. We were a party of five and did not feel cramped! The home owners took special care and left a welcome treat! We were five busy ladies that needed some down time and the house provided just that!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your impressions! We host quite a few Girls' Getaways and we think most appreciate being able to walk to the best shopping and restaurants, plus having a comfortable place to come back to at the end of the day. We hope you keep us in mind for a future trip an thank you!

We were so happy with our stay in you beautiful home! We were down for wedding and having children in a hotel was not what we wanted to do. This house was perfect! It is very well equipped! The house was immaculate! John and Rita have thought of all the details you worry about forgetting! Hope to return again!!
