We had a wonderful weekend, the cottage was perfect and just as described in the listing. Could not have had a better time, do yourself a favor and stay here if you are visiting Mystic!
Grounds are lovely. Really spacious, quiet, and well maintained.
House is also great, but a few things to note: not a true 3 br, but a 2 br with a den that has a futon. Hot tub wasn't working the whole weekend, so check before you book if you are looking forward to it. Upstairs shower doesn't have a shower curtain. That was a bit strange, but the water pressure was so low it didn't matter so much.
Overall the place is nice (if not a bit lacking in cleanliness), but a good space and great outdoors to relax a weekend away in.
The Seaside Cottage is located in a lovely calm neighborhood with a wonderful views at the bay. We had our breakfasts in the outdoor sitting area while enjoying the spectacular scenery. Sunsets are great too! The area is safe and quiet. Alex and his family were very nice, welcoming and gave us privacy. The cottage is rustic yet well-equipped. The kitchen has everything we needed for our 4-day stay. The stairs leading to upstairs bedroom are a bit narrow and not very comfortable to use during the night (bathroom is downstairs) or while carrying a baby. The tub and shower curtain could be newer. The location of the place is great, just a short drive away from Stonington, Mystic and Rhode Island beaches.
The location is perfect. 5 minutes from Mystic, 5 minutes from Stonington and less than a half hour from Watch Hill and Misquamicut beaches in RI. The place is nothing special, just a little cottage and the layout is definitely unique. But the outdoor space looks right out on the water inlet with a great view of the sunset and a few different seating areas!
Alex communicated promptly and thoroughly, although we never actually met him. The cottage is as described--neat, petite, a bit rustic, but all you need, and thoughtfully provided. Location is perfect for reaching bigger beaches and entertainment within a short drive in either direction. Lord's Point is sweet and filled with walkers headed to watch the sunset.
This is a great place to relax on the pier and explore the beautiful area around Mystic and Stonington. The view is just lovely--looking out across a bay with picturesque pier and moored boats, especially early morning and sunset. Although we did not meet Alex during our stay, he gave us some useful information about places to stock up on groceries.
Our second time at Seaside Cottage, and another incredible weekend. Alex is such a great host, and the location can't be beat. Thank you Alex!
We had a very nice stay at Alex's house. The house is spacious, clean, well maintained and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. It was easy to explore the Mystic area using the house as our home base and Alex was easy to deal with.
The location was incredible with wonderful views of Long Island Sound, quiet streets, and peaceful neighborhood for walks. We didn't see the host (Alex) while we were there but met family members who were very warm and helpful. The cottage itself was basic and somewhat rustic but very comfortable with a full and serviceable kitchen and cozy living room. We particularly liked the lovely outside sitting areas and had breakfast there every morning with great views of the water. Internet connection was down for a couple of days and when it came up, it was slow and could not be accessed from the cottage, only outside next to the main house (we tried four different devices).
Alex was very quick to respond and easy to work with. The house is in a lovely, peaceful neighborhood.
