Family-friendly Old Saybrook cottage in Saybrook Manor with water park
The Cottage was chosen as one of the top ten unique places to stay in Ct.
'Awesome Cottage! Great Owner!

Absolutely loved this house and will definitely plan on staying here again! My husband is originally from Connecticut and his entire family still lives there. Traditionally we stay with family when we visit but I decided to rent a house this trip so we could entertain and have everyone over. This house was charming and very comfortable. It was my mother in laws 80th birthday and I had about 25 family members over for a dinner party. Every person who entered the house commented on what a terrific cottage it was. Having the upstairs loft was a perfect space for my son to have his privacy and a place to relax. He (and I) loved having the wireless internet connection that worked great! The outdoor area was very private and the deck was a wonderful space to hang out and kick back. Everyone really enjoyed the art work throughout the house and commented that it provided warmth and character to the cottage. Lastly I want to share my comments on the owner Yvette, she was very prompt in her responses to me and a real pleasure to work with through the rental process. Yvette thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was the most memorable visit to Connecticut that our family has ever had. Take care, my best, Julianna (This was the first time I ever rented a home online or used the Home Away site, it was a great experience!)'


Response

I have been renting my cottage since 2006. I own the lot next door, a tiny wooded lot, so the back yard is very private. The house is on a private dirt home has a large deck, front porch, fireplace, I provide linens, spices, paper towels, trash bags.

This is the home I raised my boys in. It was always filled with love....

4/5 Good

14 Evans Lane
The property shows a little age, but it's quaint, comfortable, and pleasant. Yvette was available and more than accommodating. The beach, however, was fairly inaccessible: kind of a long walk, and no parking allowed.

5/5 Excellent

So happy in The Cottage
Everything about The Cottage is magical. The home is surprisingly large, the location ideal. One can make home-cooked meals, or dine out. Cannot say enough about this vacation home. Yvette was most attentive, reachable by phone, and has a gem for anyone’s get-away. Thank you, Yvette.

4/5 Good

Short but sweet stay
We did a short overnight stay following an evening event nearby. The four of us were very comfortable and would have enjoyed a longer stay.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Artistic Beach House
My husband and I had a great stay at Yvette’s house. She was so easy to communicate with and she truly wanted to make sure we had a great time. Plus we were able to take our dog with us which made for a perfect weekend getaway. The private beach which is walking distance was so beautiful 😍

5/5 Excellent
