“Stellar Spring Visit!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2014

A spring getaway to catch up with siblings and in-laws and just relax and do our own thing. Found this beautiful house which was perfectly located for our needs. Ann was very helpful with regard to special requests for information as most had not visited Mystic before. It was easy for some to walk to the village while others jogged on a nice road along the river, and then all meet for lunch. There are a lot of great choices in town. The owners have created an interesting garden with many varieties of shrubs and the daffodils were blooming in full force. I just wish they had finished their plan identifying everything - obviously a work in progress. The house is comfortable and has a happy feeling reflecting the owner's interests. They are clearly not big on media, although there are several flat panel TV's in strategic locations and reliable wifi throughout the house. But, that's not the reason to visit this wonderful area or stay at the 1853 Captain Wheeler House. We hope to return, maybe to see the garden in the autumn.

Liked best: Great house, great location for walking & exploring historic coastal area
Liked least: Too many good restaurants to choose from!
Travelling group: Extended Family
