This boutique property will fill you with that "away-from-it-all" feeling with its 6+ acres of forested woodlands, manicured perennial gardens, and large open lawn. We're located on a scenic winding country road running north from Old Mystic past farms and fresh water ponds to our location in the forested valley of Lantern Hill. The ponds (Long Pond, Bush Pond, and Lantern Hill Pond) are popular for freshwater fishing, canoeing, and swimming. Lantern Hill is the highest point in the area. From the peak, you can see the Mystic River and Fishers Island Sound. From our property, you can access beautiful woodlands trails including the one to the top of Lantern Hill. By car, turning left out of our property takes you right into Mystic, Connecticut. It is a pleasant, short bicycle ride for cycling enthusiasts.
The Cottage and its lovely fenced-in rear courtyard garden area will be yours alone during your stay. It is completely separate from the main house. Due to Covid-safety, at this time the main house is not accessible. If you would like wine glasses or ice during your stay, please let us know. We can also provide you with an electric kettle. If you would like breakfast, it is served from 8AM-10AM and will be delivered to the Cottage. During Spring, Summer, and Fall, we have a hammocks, fire pits, a gas grill, and covered outdoor lounge which are all accessible to our guests. The hiking trails are accessible year-round.
Other things to note
The following apply only to guests bringing pets:
•There is an additional fee of $20 per pet, per night.
•Two pets allowed. Pets must be both well-behaved & non-destructive.
•Well-behaved: Pets must be controlled by their owners at all times and not run after or jump on the hosts or other people encountered at the property or on the hiking trails. Dogs who bark often, especially when left alone in the Cottage, are a disturbance and should not be brought to the property.
•Non-destructive: It is required that pets do not chew, claw, pee-on or in any way damage any of the furniture, flooring, rug, doors, window blinds, walls, linens, towels, etc. If there is a possibility that your pet will cause damage, we strongly suggest you crate it during your stay when you cannot supervise it. We also expect that the garden beds in the Cottage courtyard will not be dug up. If damage to the Cottage occurs during your stay, you will be responsible for the full cost to fix it.
•Pet waste: You are solely responsible for bagging poop your pet(s) make and disposing it in a waste bin. If we left to clean up your dog's poop from the property, you will be charged $50.
