. Our house is a side-by-side two family. We live in one side and rent the other by the day (3 night minimum), week or month. In the summer it is ideal for visiting Ocean Beach Park, Rocky Neck and Hammonasset state parks, nearby Mystic and Stonington as well as the Rhode Island beaches. But in the winter, we are still located within easy driving distance of many ski areas: 1 hour, 40 miles, from Powder Ridge Park in Middletown, CT; an hour and ten minutes, or 60 miles, from Winding Trails in Farmington, CT; only 40 minutes, or 40 miles, from Yawgoo Valley in Rhode Island; 120 miles or an hour and a half from Wachusett in Princeton, MA, Ski Ward (83 miles) in Shrewsbury, MA or Blue Hills (93 miles) in Canton, MA.
The first floor includes the living room with working fireplace for those cold wintry nights, a large dining room for family meals, an updated kitchen plus a laundry/mud room making it easy to bring in your snow and ski gear. In addition there is a small, windowed front porch area that's perfect for quiet reading and for those vacationers who still need to check in with work the house is equipped with WiFi. Upstairs is the bathroom and three bedrooms (one full bed, one with two twins and one queen); the queen bedroom also has a small sitting area for quiet relaxation with a good book. The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, paper supplies, pots, pans, utensils, dishes as well as a coffee maker, blender, microwave, toaster, etc. Mystic, only a fifteen minute drive away, has the renowned Seaport and Aquarium which are both open year-round. A half hour away gets you to any of three of the largest casinos in the country – Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Fox woods. Downtown New London itself is an art lovers haven with galleries, live music, theater and performing arts. New London is also home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College and the Coast Guard Academy; while the Naval Submarine Base is located across the River in Groton. New London is located 2-1/2 hours from both New York and Boston and about an hour away from famed Newport, Rhode Island where you can tour the grand old mansions of the Gilded Age. In addition to WiFi, there is cable TV, a DVD/VCR player, lots of movies to choose from as well as a sound system and very eclectic music selection. We try to make your stay as comfortable as we can. The house is equipped with a state-of-the-art LG minisplit system for heat (and air conditioning). It’s like being home away from home.
