      PERFECT location for Mystic and beyond...

      The cottage was perfect in many ways! The profile picture is actually the front porch of the main house where the owners live, but there is a shared deck that connects the Main house to the Boat house cottage. The deck has plenty of sitting space to take in the beautiful scenery. The cottage was perfect--very clean and accommodating. We thought it was odd that the shower was in the laundry room instead of the bathroom, but it was actually genius-- so while someone was in the shower--the bathroom was still accessible. You pretty much only need your toothbrush and a change of clothes; the owners provide everything else from toiletry items (shampoo, conditioner, and soaps) to laundry needs (detergent, dryer sheets) to linens (extra pillow, blankets, sheet sets) to coffee, coffee creamer , milk, and bottled water. We had nice weather so we did a lot of walking in Mystic. EVERYTHING was well within walking distance. Food, shopping, and even a playground. And just about everything was open in this resort town. (Unlike some towns who have an off -season such as Berlin, St Michaels, Watch Hill...) This cottage is only 2 streets away from the Mystic River waterfront boardwalk and the drawbridge. Between those two streets (Willow & Cottrell) is the very clean and well maintained Mystic River Park and Playground. This rental is also perfect for destinations beyond Mystic. We often visit Watch Hill RI, and go even further up the coast to Bar Harbor ME this will be our go to lodging for future New England trips as either a waypoint or a destination. We are from MD and stayed at the Boat house and roamed Mystic the first day, then next morning went to Watch Hill- only 25 minutes up the road we went for the beach and my daughter likes to go visit Harkness House. Not much was open due to the off season, and also power outages and damage from the storms. And then returned to mystic for dinner and evening strolling though Mystic. On our way home through New York we were able to jump off of I95 and hit PSleepy Hollow and Tarrytown on the Sadly, New England was hit by some really bad storms just before our arrival that did quite a bit of damage, and the standing water, downed branches and higher than average winds were still present, and things appeared in slight disarray during our stay-- so, we did not partake in all that the owners had to offer, (bicycles,kayaks, fire pit) but that still did not negatively impact our stay in any way.

        Excellent place in Mystic

        Best place we stayed during our 3 weeks in New England. Boathouse was equipped with enough linens, kitchen items for an extended stay. Nice extra touches like bottle water, coffee.

        5/5 Excellent

          I can’t imagine a better spot in Mystic

          We stayed for a long October weekend and loved the location and accommodations. The Boathouse was cozy and clean and just as advertised. We loved the natural light in the living area and kitchen. The kayaks were a great touch and we had a lovely paddle on the Mystic River. The proximity to the village made it easy to walk to restaurants and shops. We will definitely return!

            Lovely place

            The cottage was bright and cheerful and the perfect amount of space for us. The two of stayed 5 nights, and had another couple join us for 2 nights. They reported the sofa bed to be comfortable, and the shower being in a separate space from the toilet and sink allowed us all to share the bathroom easily. There were plenty of choices of linens available for us to make up the sofa bed. We were pleasantly surprised that items such as specific cooking utensils, condiments, salt & pepper, bottled water, ice and a full chilled Brita were waiting for us. The location worked well to walk to shops and restaurants in mystic, and short drives to Stonington and New London. The host was friendly and responsive by text or email with any questions we had.

            5/5 Excellent

              Great place in Mystic!

              Very cozy and impeccably clean boathouse in perfect location. Can walk to multiple restaurants and the Main Street of shops in Mystic. We had a lot of rain but would have definitely used the bikes and kayaks on site. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Obvious that a lot of thought and care goes into their rental. Would highly recommend and hope to come back again sometime!
