Spectacular views of the Mystic River. This room is a guest favorite and has water on three sides. You are immersed in the shoreline of Mason's Island with ducks, egrets, swans, seagulls, and passing boats. Everybody loves to relax, watch the wildlife, read, nap, or eat here. Most evenings feature unbelievable sunsets because the view over the water faces West! Whenever we are there, when the late afternoon arrives we start sizing-up the sunset potential (some clouds are are better than none) Great sunset = eat at home and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. No restaurant has this view. The colors and appearance are a constantly changing canvas. The Sunroom now doubles as the dinning room because everybody wanted the view while eating dinner. It has a beautiful mahogany table that expands to make it just the right size for any function.
Winters are moderated by the water but it can still be cold outside. The scenes take on a look and feel that is very different from the other seasons. When it snows the view is incredible. The air is clear and crisp and the water is blue gray slate. Inside it is warm and cozy. The house was completely re-insulated and there is a really nice gas fireplace. Restaurants are open and getting reservations is much easier than during the Summer.
Autumn in Mystic is simply gorgeous! No traffic, no lines, and foliage to die for. There is plenty to do in the Fall besides relaxing and taking in the incredible views.
