Great Getaway!
We got exactly the calm and relaxing getaway we needed. Chris and Caitlin were warm and welcoming. The property is close to the Mystic River and a public boat launch where we were able to put our kayaks in the water each day of our stay! It’s also a comfortable walk to Main Street shops and the drawbridge. Couldn’t have asked for anything more!

A perfect retreat from the city
Caitlin and Chris could not have been more accommodating. They were incredibly flexible in helping us booking last minute. Both the house and the location were perfect. The home is peaceful and quiet and everything you could possibly want is within walking distance. They had great recommendations for restaurants and entertainment in the area. 10/10 recommend!

Light, Airy, Quaint and Peaceful
Caitlin and Chris, our hosts, did a great job of decorating this cottage. It is bright, lots of window, and well done. The setting is a beautiful quiet backyard behind their historic home. We loved being within walking distance of downtown Mystic but not right in the middle of the action. Caitllin and Chris were available and very responsive to a couple of questions, but honored our privacy. This is truly a 5-star property and my wife and I highly recommend it.

Best weekend in Mystic!
We had such a picture perfect weekend at Caitlin & Chris’s cottage. The place itself is adorable, extremely clean and comfortable. Caitlin & Chris made us feel so welcome! The cottage is in the perfect location right by the river and we loved being able to walk downtown. We seriously felt like we were living out of an Elin Hilderband book or a Nicholas Sparks movie! Can’t wait to come back!

What a beautiful place!
The pictures don’t do justice to the rental. The interior was beautiful, well appointed. Felt like you were in a luxury hotel suite. Although walkable to town, the location felt very private! Would definitely come back.

Nice getaway cottage in Mystic
The cottage is lovely, quiet and private but nice and bright due to its many windows (with blinds) and skylights. Caitlin and Chris are ideal hosts, easily available but non-intrusive. They also leave helpful info sheets for local restaurants and activities as well as treats for the guests. The bed is comfortable, and we slept quite well. If not clear from the listing, the cottage is on top of a hill behind the main house where the hosts reside. The front door of the cottage faces the hill, not the street, and has a relatively secluded outside sitting area with a table and two chairs. The neighborhood is quiet and appears to be an old part of Mystic, judging by the age of many of the houses. Downtown Mystic is walking distance from the cottage. Plenty of room in the driveway for your car. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would stay at the cottage again in the future.

I was so please staying at this little cottage in Mystic. It was clean, cozy, everything we were looking for to get away and just relax. Close to good restaurants and some things to do. I would recommend to anyone looking to stay in that area.

Great little cottage
We enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was clean, quaint, and in a perfect location to town. Perfect for a weekend get away to recharge.

A perfect low-key change of scenery
After months of staying at home, we were looking for a weekend change of scenery and change of pace. This cottage was the perfect place to relocate, eat great takeout food from Mystic markets and restaurants, walk around town and along the water, and get to some of the hiking nearby. It's light, airy, and quiet--everything we were looking for!

Cozy and comfortable
We had a lovely stay at this very clean, comfortable and wonderfully laid out studio situated in a quiet setting but close enough to walk downtown and along the water. Caitlin was an amazing host, too! My husband and I would definitely stay again if in the Mystic area and would highly recommend for a couple or a single.
