The House itself is a very contemporary ranch style house, quite different from anything else in the area. The interior is well furnished with comfortable living spaces and artwork. The house is bisected by a grand hallway that runs through its center and fills the entire space with natural sunlight light pouring in from the large windows. Whether it's a warm summer day or a winter's eve, there is always a view out into the the dense woods, full of wildlife. The whole area is very quiet, far enough away from major roads that you won't hear anything but the wind blowing through the trees. Guests are free to make use of all the home's appliances and kitchen. More details can be found in the amenities section.
The house is the home of 2 cats and a non shedding dog. During rentals the cats are moved to their kitty vacation house located on the proprety and a family members checks on them daily.
The house is the ideal starting point of any day trip. We are minutes from scenic Branford center, home of many historic sites, cute shops and some of the best restaurants in the area. With the Long Island Sound only minutes from the center, it's perfect for a lazy day at the beach. Branford's waters are very sheltered, great for swimming and paddle sports. We're also only 15 minutes from New Haven, a bustling city full of excitement. Within New Haven, one can find many artistic sites like the Yale Art Gallery and Peabody Museum. It's also known for some of the best pizza in the world, home of Pepe's, Modern Appizza, and many other traditional brick oven pizzerias. New Haven also has active night life but don't forget that its just a short hour by train from New York city, if you are looking for something bigger. For the outdoor enthusiasts though, be sure to check out Sleeping Giant national state park for some fun, challenging trails and amazing views overlooking New Haven and the Sound.

My name is Sylvie, I was born in Canada and became involved in the arts and modeling in my youth. After I met my husband, we moved to Long island for a few years before purchasing this property and we have been Branford residents ever since. I'm an animal lover, having owned everything from cats to bears and most things in between. I regularly attend equestrian events in the area and practice natural horsemanship. In the summer, I try to get out on the water whenever possible. I'm also a seasoned chef, no pun intended. Cooking has always been a pleasure of mine that I share with my son.
Sylvie Treu purchased this house in 1991
This property is comfortable, very different in architecture and design from anything you have experienced with lots of room and space in a very bright setup. It is clean and well maintained, we treat our guests like friends or family making sure all their needs are satisfied and being seasoned travelers, we strive to exceed your expectations. The pool is a great plus when traveling or visiting as well as the hiking trails right off the property bordering the Pond Supply State Park with miles and miles of fun and challenging trails.
Secluded and noise free, this property is within minutes of downtown Branford and the Long Island Sound with many activities available. If you live in the city, you will sleep like a baby.
We offer sailboat charters and rides as well. Check listing #665091 on this site. Take advantage of your stay in Connecticut to sail the Thimble Islands in a very unique way on our 35' sailboat. Visit for more details.
My two daughters and their families and I have rented this house twice. IT's been perfect for our needs. Comfortable, well-equipped. Nice outside area for the kids to play, and a delightful pool. Although the house is actually in a suburban neighborhood, it feels very private. Near good beaches and an outstanding lobster shack! The owners are very accommodating. This a very good value.
The home in Branford is beautiful and the owners are very nice. The house is very well lived in by the owners. When you rent it for the week be ready to live out of your suitcase and share the bathroom with their belongings and also share the refrigerator. Although we did not have children staying in the house we did have our grandson visit, you must watch the kids their are swords in on bedroom and beautiful art in the entire house. The home is not updated, no smoke detectors in house. The bedrooms are a nice size but the beds are on the floor, like in the 60's. We rented this home because we thought it would be great for my mother who is in a wheelchair. The shower was easy to get into but the toilets are very low and hard to get up from. We were not able to put the air conditioner on because of the pet hair in the vents. We checked the air filter is was very dirty.
Again the house is very nice, you can expect the owners to visit daily to care of the cats that are in the cat house next to the house. Be ready to clean the pool on your own, they only came once to clean it. The last day we noticed cameras by the master bedroom and garage, not that we did anything wrong, we just felt like we were being watch.
If you can overlook all this and relax you will have a great time!
The Branford home was well-suited to a family reunion gathering. The decorations and collections displayed made us feel we were in our own home, rather than a rental or hotel room. A grand piano was a bonus. The interior layout was roomy and well-appointed, with comfortable spaces in which to socialize inside and out. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. The exterior, with pool, yard, BBQ and dining table made us feel at home and reasonably private, with neighboring houses well away from the house. The home was clean and well-maintained, and our host made sure that we knew how to operate everything. The host was very responsive when we had a question about the BBQ during our stay. I would rent this property again and recommend it to friends. Thank you!
The pool was excellent as was the large patio area. The home had many comfortable sitting areas. The well-equipped kitchen was large. The owners were very nice.
We had two families - 4 adults and 5 tweens and teens. The home, the yard and the pool were perfect. The home is very secluded and very comfortable. We swam, played volleyball, watched movies in the awesome media room, grilled out, and had family card games around the big kitchen table. It was the best vacation we have had in a long time. Thank you Sylvie and Eric for opening up your home to us.
I booked this house for a Ladies Getaway Weekend for 4 sets of sisters. I am extremely happy to have booked this place. Sylvie and Eric were very helpful and made me feel overly confident before even arriving at the property. Once we arrived, they were very professional and accommodating. The house was exactly the same as the pictures and the location was amazing. It was all we expected, very comfortable and spacious for all of us to have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and each bedroom/bathroom were very nice. Our favorite place was the very large deck where we spent most of our time enjoying our meals, listening to music, chatting or swimming in the beautiful pool. We had such a greatl time that we haven’t stop talking about it. Sylvie kept in contact the whole time to make sure all was well. I really appreciated the hospitality and comfort of this home and will definitely book this house again in the near future.
For foodies, Be sure to check out Pepe's Pizza in New Haven. It and nearby Modern Apizza are widely regarded as some of the best pizzerias on the East coast. This is not your average pizza, new comers will be blown away by the quality ingredients and perfect cooking technique.
For fine dining, be sure to make reservations at Le Petit Cafe. As one of Zaggat's Top 40 restaurants in the US, it's not to be missed. The French-Asian fusion will leave a lasting impression on you and a fixed price menu keeps that impression from lasting on your wallet at just $50 per person. Great for special events and romantic dinners.
