Fantastic location and home

An Amazingly Memorable & Idyllic Vacation
This is a truly special, historic home with everything that you could want or need for a special occasion or family vacation. The house itself is incredibly comfortable with ample space. It has lots of interesting historic artefacts but at the same time feels like a family home. We did not want for anything during our stay, everything you could possibly need is provided. The grounds are magical & idyllic & the beach is absolutely beautiful. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful to unwind while still being close to shops, restaurants & areas of interest or activities it is ideal. The location is fabulous & you can do as much or a little as you want. The view from the house is exceptional & eating out, under the trees was a real treat.
Rob (who met us & assisted us during our stay) & Susan (who did all the initial communications & organisation) were the most amazing hosts too & could not do enough to help. They went out of their way to accommodate us & any special requests. They were a pleasure to deal with.
I cannot recommend Old House on Griswold Point highly enough.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our family home. We appreciate guests who care for and respect our home.
My family and I loved our stay here. It was private and spacious for my group of 16. The children (ages 1- 25) enjoyed the beach and yard as much as the adults. We played yard games, flew kites and relaxed while renewing our bond with one another. The Connecticut history was priceless. Loved it!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your week at our family home. It truly is a wonderful place for family and friend gatherings.
Spent a week at this beautiful, old house with our extended family. Loved the beach and waterfront. Great swimming area for my grandchildren. We had most of our meals outside overlooking the Long Island Sound. The sunsets were spectacular too. Overall a great week for our family.
Needed a getaway for a family spring weekend. The new kitchen is great for cooking meals for our large family and we had great dinners in the dining room. Loved our walks to the beach. We would certainly like to visit again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Our location is spectacular, and the home has it's quaint antique feel with updates like the new kitchen. Come visit again if your travels bring you to the Connecticut Shore.
Enjoy the quiet of staying on a private point or venture to Old Saybrook, Essex, Mystic, Stonington, or New London. There are many restaurants, and activities to be explored along the Connecticut coast.
