Escape the nearby beach with a quiet stay in the woods. Private room with private shared bath in an older single-family home on two acres of land. It has its quirks (like strawberry wallpaper) and it's not über-modern, but it's unique and we love it! Close to I-95, Route 9, and trains along the CT Shoreline.
Near venues: Water's Edge (3 mi) ◦ Saybrook Point (8 mi) ◦ Madison Beach (13 mi) ◦ The Guest House (9.5 mi) ◦ Mohegan Sun (31 mi) ◦ Foxwoods (38 mi)
More than two? We have another bedroom!
Bright corner room on the second floor with a rug-covered hardwood floor, work desk, multi-port surge protectors with USB, window unit air conditioner (June-September), laundry hamper, lamp with USB and power ports, Amazon Echo Dot, and full-size bed with microplush blanket, down alternative comforter, microfiber sheets (flannel sheets in colder months), plush and firm bamboo pillows. Bedroom door has a privacy lock that only locks from the inside while the occupant is in the room. Two person maximum occupancy.
We're also still working on the walls in the room (lots of holes from shelves, etc. that were once screwed or nailed in), so bear with us!
Private shared bath (shower/tub combination, although we do not recommend using the bathtub) on the second floor just across the hallway with amenities such as a hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, body soaps, toothpaste, cotton balls and swabs, face razors, iron, and ironing board. Note that the bathroom is only shared with other Airbnb guests. Also the door will stick due to the humidity... just push firmly to close!
The den features a 46" HDTV connected to digital cable with HBO, Showtime, Starz, The Movie Channel, etc., as well as Amazon Fire TV Cube with Alexa Voice Remote including several popular streaming services, and Blu-ray player. The house also has a dining room, formal living room, sunroom, and outdoor patio with grill (summer months).
Full kitchen on the first floor with oven/range, microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven, crêpe/pancake griddle, waffle maker, and all the necessary cooking implements. There is also a Google Nest Hub connected to Pandora Radio and SiriusXM from where you can control the lights and more.
Coffee bar in the dining room featuring a Keurig, coffee grinder, and a wide selection of coffees, teas, hot chocolate, oatmeal, and breakfast biscuits. The dining room also has Google Nest Mini that is connected to Pandora Radio and SiriusXM.
We are also pleased to offer snacks for sale, including cold soda, chips, ice cream, sweets, and more. Payments are accepted via Venmo, PayPal, and cash.
If the weather's nice, enjoy the outdoor patio! Once a month - from May to September - the yard is sprayed for mosquitoes and other pests.
Top-loading washer (without agitator) and dryer available for your use along with an additional toilet. Washing machine use is limited to a maximum of one load per day as the house is on a private well.

November - March: Like most New England homes, our house is built of wood and slightly creaky. Our heating system is oil with baseboard radiators. This is common in older homes of the Northeast where energy costs are very high. The system is very quiet compared to forced or central heating systems. In winter, we keep the interior temperature of our house around 55-60°F (12.5-15.5°C) during the day; less at night, usually around 50-55°F (10-12.5°C).
April - October: The heat is off in the house. Please note that air conditioning is limited to only the guest room as the house does not have central air.
LGBTQ+ and military friendly!
Quiet, hilly, wooded, residential neighborhood two miles from the Ivoryton town line. Lots of woodland creatures around, like squirrels, turkeys, chipmunks, groundhogs, rabbits, deer, hedgehogs, foxes, opossums, skunks, and more - all harmless unless you seriously bother them.
Please note this part of town does not have sidewalks or streetlights. The roads are windy, hilly, and the speed limit is 25-35 mph (40-56 km/h). Cell phone coverage in the area can be spotty, especially if you have a USA-based, GSM-only carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile. If you need to make phone calls, we suggest using apps over WiFi like FaceTime, Hangouts, WhatsApp, Skype, etc.
Great location if attending events along the Connecticut shoreline.
