Your privacy and comfort are important to us and although our paths may not cross during your stay we're more than happy to help with suggestions for dining and a wide variety of local activities.
There are two shy cats at Cedar View who never enter the guest suite. Be prepared to be lulled to sleep by the distant sound of the fog horn and awake to deer grazing at the perimeter of the property.

Liz was fantastic. The room was clean and private and the best place to finish out me and my mom's road trip. The place was beautiful and in a great location between Mystic, CT and Westerly, RI. Liz provided us with maps, directions, even two granola bars and popcorn. There was a small TV and some games for hanging out at night. We were unable to say goodbye in person so she left us a note and some fresh berries. The host really determines how well the stay is, and Liz was great in every way. I know where I'll be booking next year's vacation!
This was our second time staying at Cedar View and we enjoyed it even more than our first time. Coming here is like coming to a best friend's home for a visit. Liz makes you feel very welcome and goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable. The room has everything you could want and a great serene view of the back yard and the cedar trees. Listening to the birds singing in the morning is a nice way to start the day. We hope to come back again next year. Thanks Liz!
We stayed at Liz's home in Stonington for a class reunion weekend in a neighboring town. The room was clean, spacious with an updated bathroom, great breeze and comfortable bed. Liz's home is located in a very convenient location, close to downtown Mystic, the Stonington Borough and Westerly, RI. The location was so quiet, we really enjoyed the birds, humming birds and the way off foghorns. We wished that we had more time to just relax and enjoy the property but our reunion had us busy all weekend. We would love to return for another visit, and hope that we will have a chance to visit more with Liz and Richard. Liz was so welcoming, we really loved our stay at Cedar View.
Liz is an excellent host! The space is so inviting and easy to access with it's own private entrance in the back of the house. Liz was away when we arrived at the house, but the door was open and the room had info about the area which was helpful. (Kitchen Little really is a great breakfast stop) It was nice to have the mini fridge and yummy coffee in the room. It was a short drive to Mysic Sea Port which is where our attention was focused for the weekend. The property is so peaceful and Liz shared her fresh from the garden strawberries with us -a treat our toddling daughter especially enjoyed! We really loved our stay at Cedar View and would stay again in a heartbeat!
When my husband and I arrived we actually went to the wrong driveway by mistake and Liz coached us over to where we were supposed to be. From the start she was so pleasant, kind, and accommodating! She went over the house manual, maps that she had gathered of the area, restaurant recommendations, and then asked if we needed anything else. We asked about places to bike in the area and she printed out a map and highlighted a recommended route.
In our room we found waters in the mini fridge, granola bars on the table, coffee, back-up toiletries, and many many other extras that made us feel like we were very well taken care of.
This was by far the best place I have ever stayed in my life and I would go back in a heartbeat.
Stonington is a small town near touristical Mystic. We liked to stay in this quieter area. It was so nice to talk to Liz and Rich, shared music and travel experiences. Go to the Weekapaug Beach, a very long beach where you will be nearly alone (a very good recommendation from our hosts). And we recommand the Voodoo Grill in Mystic, sit in the nice garden area and eat very good burgers. The Ceder View room is a well equipped room downstairs with an own entrance, an ensuite bathroom and a small kitchinette (water kettle, microwave, cups etc. – in addition a toaster would be great…). If the weather is good you can sit outside in the sun. There are also sitting areas inside the room. The room itself is very big, the bed too. We sleept well, but be aware of the fog horn (like Liz said in her room description) and you will hear every moving, chatting, laughing, music from upstairs – also the housing technology is just beside the Ceder View room, so you might wake up if someone in the house uses water – or you use earplugs. But in the end it was the right choice for us, Liz and Rich are both very nice, helpful people. Thanks for everything.
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay with Liz. The room and bathroom were very clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished with many extras I don't normally see in an airbnb. There was a full length mirror, a microwave and coffee maker, small fridge... All these things really helped to make our work trip more pleasant. The beds were very comfortable and it was helpful to have the option of two twins as I was staying with a work friend. There is a lovely garden if you want to eat outdoors. I would highly recommend it and hope to stay there again if I'm ever in the area.
About the Host, Liz
I love to chat but love more to listen. Leisure time is spent reading, gardening, cooking, more cooking and (website hidden) has always been an interest and favorite activity! In the winter it's more handwork, travel and entertaining. Movies? Yes...TV?...not really. Music?...in love with many different styles from classical and jazz to bluegrass. Feathering my nest is always fun and sharing the nest with friends and family is what it's all about.
When on the road (staying in a hostel, fine hotel or private home), I take pride in leaving a place as I find it or better. Being a respectful guest/traveler has always been important to me.
