"Ellis" is a cute fully heated and winterized camp cottage built in the 1960's by the students of Ellis Tech. It has two bedrooms and sleeps 4. The detached bunkhouse has 3 single beds and is available for larger groups. Very peaceful lakeside location on Beach Pond. Walking distance to trails. Enjoy the quintessential lakeside vacation!
“We had an incredible time at Ellis cabin--it was the perfect getaway for our family! The lake was amazing for swimming and kayaking and exploring. We loved the sauna--getting heated up, then jumping into the lake--and took a really nice hike nearby. Angela did a great job of explaining everything, check in was super easy and the cabin was very clean. We loved being able to bring our dog to enjoy the hiking and swimming! All in all, a wonderful spot. We will for sure be back soon!”
This is a beautifully appointed studio apartment located off the patio level of a water front home. Guests enjoy a large private patio over looking gorgeous sweeping views of Long Island Sound. A private entrance and off street parking. The amazing views and amenities make this space the perfect romantic getaway! Close to I95 and Metro North railroad. Ten minutes to great dining in downtown Milford. A true waterfront oasis! Come and experience this beautiful retreat! You won't be disappointed!
“In these trying times of restrictive travel, Super Host David has been kind to offer a piece of his studio with an European style patio. It has a spectacular view of The Sound and offers magnificent sunrises. While there are fine restaurants nearby, there is no need to go out. We enjoyed our own private dining overlooking the beautiful scenery. Local restaurants offer take out service, also, the studio has amenities to prepare meals, if you wish. This is beneficial with recent social distancing directives. The studio is immaculately clean and luxurious. Your privacy is strictly respected. Unlike other local accommodations, it is located on the end of a quiet street with minimal traffic, if at all. This is a "KEEPER" for repeat getaways. Thanks David!”
Water Forest retreat is a very private 144 ft.² electrified and heated cedar octagon next to a brook on 100 acres of forest with a pond, waterfall, marsh and hiking trails. Cozy up in this quiet comfortable space while listening to Goldmine brook while you sleep. Fire pit, heated outhouse with composting toilet, outdoor dining area, brook and trail head are just steps away. We also have a TREE HOUSE and HIKER’S HAVEN house by the brook.

“When it comes to a stay at the Water Forest Retreat, you can expect just that...a total retreat. From the moment Bert led us through the entrance to the woods where the Octagon house was located, we were immediately transported into another realm. The air cooled, the light dimmed, and all we could hear were birds chirping and the rushing of the stream below. the Octagon House was immaculately clean, and had the most beautiful touches from Nancy's pottery and other artwork, including a lit wooden sculpture chandelier above the bed. The panoramic view of the woods left us feeling in awe of the nature around us. It wasn't long before my husband and I decided to trek through the over 2.5 miles of scenic hiking trails on the property. Every so often, we found a cozy bench to sit on while taking in the views (of which there were many!) We couldn't wait to get a fire blazing and enjoy the serenity of the space. The entire area around the Octagon was so grounding (I actually turned my phone off for an entire day!). We cooked over the fire and eventually fell asleep to the sounds of the brook, and local wildlife, from within the comfort of our eight cozy walls. When it was time to check out, we enjoyed a lovely conversation with Bert, and picked up a gorgeous pottery mug and vase from Nancy's "Fire Witch Pottery". I came upon the Water Forest Retreat from a Facebook post, and am so grateful to have had a stay there. I hope that we make it back to the Octagon some time very soon. It was the perfect one night getaway!”
