Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This lovely and bright house is perfect for a little vacation and relaxation. Get a taste of living off the grid. While cellphone service is excellent and cable is ready, you will feel like you're in a place that is ridiculously peaceful and picturesque.

I have had several visiting nurses stay here since it's close to New Haven yet safe and peaceful in the country.
This is a shared house with me and Olive (a small pug) and has a one acre fenced in yard.

The space
This is a shared space. That means I live here with my pug and rent out one bedroom.

Can you picture yourself waking up to a memorable sunrise with a strong brew of coffee? As you stroll down to the dock you have a choice of gliding with the kayak to a nearby island, fishing on the boat or taking a swim in the tranquil waters.

Enjoy the warm weather and take advantage of countless activities on the lake. The fish are jumping and the kayaks are ready. I am nestled in the vibrant, shoreline town of Guilford, Connecticut. Only a short drive to downtown and Yale and centrally located between Boston & New York. Situated on the one acre property is a 5,000 square foot country residence. Enjoy taking a refreshing swim in the crystal clear lake or take a tranquil hike around the lake to one of the many fishing spots to catch largemouth bass, pickerel, or trout. Free use of fishing boat w/motor, kayaks and bikes. Nothing better than being on the lake. It’s just a cool place that is quite unique.

Winter is fun too with ice skating, sledding, and the occasional weekend hockey game. Autumn is beautiful and so is Spring.

There are hiking and biking trails close by and the New Haven Sportsmen’s Club is right across the lake

You’ll be greeted warmly upon your arrival with a choice of red or white wine.
Coffee, Tea and Juice for breakfast with oatmeal or yogurt. I’d like to find out if you have any allergies or food preferences so I can accommodate you better.
The kitchen is available for whatever you'd like to cook and you’ll feel instantly at home.
I think of my guests as family and I’m excited to meet you.

From NYC living in Connecticut. Retired Air Force Veteran. I've always had friends in other countries and love learning about the world through them. Getting a true taste of a foreign culture is much easier through a native, so I try to visit them and let them show me around. Always out to make more friends though. It's disappointing when I go somewhere and don't know anyone. My interests are cooking, checking out museums, galleries, good coffee shops, movies, cocktails, good wine, great food, beach, hiking, traveling, nice conversation, laugh out loud, a good time. I like nice people, the rest is optional (Mean people suck). Hang out with me for a few weeks and you will see the randomness of my friends, thus I think I enjoy most types of people. We can always learn something from everyone, so everyone is worth meeting. I don't like superficial people. The more I grow up, the more I realize how little I know. I'm a very sharing person and you will feel very welcome in my home.
