The space
This is a peaceful place, just off the beaten path. You'll cross the train tracks to find Willow Point, a small community built around the Mystic Shipyard. Within the house, you might notice the extraordinary quality of light and hear the soft sound of the train and our neighbor's geese. A covered front porch and small private yard with stone fire pit are entirely for your use. Please note: we are currently upgrading our kitchen to include a sink, stove, and larger sitting area to accommodate longer stays. We do not have a TV but provide high-speed Wifi so you can stay connected, work remotely, and watch movies on your computer.

I love to travel and have stayed in many people's homes over the years. Airbnb offers an authentic experience based on trust, very different than a hotel, plus you get more space and privacy. I've been hosting with my mom Betty for several years in the special corner of CT I grew up in. She is a former RN and active octogenarian. My sister Jennifer and her daughters live close by and help with the house. I live in Somerville, MA with my husband. We enjoy cycling, home improvement projects, growing things, and design. We would love to hear from you, host you, or be hosted in your home!
