This house was a perfect place for our group to stay. We were in town for a reunion, and the many living/sitting rooms, bathrooms, and various bed configurations worked out great. Lorie and Denise graciously allowed us to have a gathering of friends there, and it made our reunion all the more enjoyable for everyone. Thank you so much!

The house in Rye is in a magnificent location with plenty of space for a large group. Our children loved using the kayaks to explore the Sound and playing on the lovely large lawn areas. The beds were super comfy and we had everything we needed for our stay. We loved our BBQ dinners with a view.

Lorie and her listing was just absolutely perfect. Although Lorie was not present at the house, she has always been the most attentive and prompt host. She connected us with the caretaker, who was helpful and generous. All my questions were answered, which made the process super easy. The house is gorgeous. The pictures do not do the property justice! There was always something great to discover at every nook and cranny. In addition, the house was spacious, clean and 100% charming. Let's not forget the backyard. Lorie and the caretaker allowed us to go rowing into the water behind the house. It's an amenity that we took advantage of and loved it. Overall, our stay was delightful and would do it again when the opportunity arises. Thanks!

This was our group's second time staying here, and we certainly look forward to returning again to this wonderfully relaxing retreat that is readily accessible from the city. Best of all, the host makes check-in easy and streamlined, and is available to answer questions throughout your entire stay.

A delightful, relaxing weekend on the Long Island Sound! Lorie's sister-in-law, Denise, met me to welcome me to the property, and ensured that we had everything needed for a memorable stay. Our group enjoyed the kayaks, playing catch on the great lawn overlooking the water, and the spacious accommodations. The neighborhood is excellent for morning walks and runs, and we had a delicious dinner at Piccolo Mulino a few minutes down the road in Mamaroneck (and Ralph's Italian Ices on the way home!). Thank you Lorie and Denise for a great stay, and I hope to return again in the future!
