The NarSeaMist (exist near the mist of the sea) is a year round rental in a typical New England Beach community. In the summer it is popular for long vacation rentals. Year round we have been booked for various occasions….quick weekend getaway, Girls Getaway, families gathering in a central place

Warm welcoming and comfortable
We stayed here for a sisters weekend. The place is so comfortable and clean. Even more spacious then the pictures show. Well appointed with plenty of places to lounge around. Kitchen had everything, there were plenty of towels and the beds were very comfortable. The fireplace was a welcome place to warm up as the night got very chilly on the early spring nights. We walked to the beach in 3 minutes. Drove to Old Saybrook for a stroll down town, visited several antique and thrift stores and ate both a fabulous lunch and dinner at some of the many choices nearby. Just a great weekend. We will be back!
