Cottage, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps At least 12
About Francis Wihbey
I purchased the house as a second home. I will eventually move here full time, in the mean time I rent it out on occasion to help with the expenses. I classify the house as my personal residence, but yet like to offer it to others to enjoy on their vacation. As you can tell it is really not a rental property, but i have satisfaction in having other people enjoy the views and relaxation time.
Francis Wihbey purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Francis Wihbey chose Pine Orchard
I purchased this vacation home to eventually retire to. I use it for a retreat and to vacation.The views are breathtaking over looking the thimble islands as well.

Our stay was wonderful.
The home, location and view are truly special.
Space enough for family to spread out and gather together.
Peaceful, beautiful and restorative.
Francis is very accessible and easy to work with.
Thank you for your stay you left the house in fabulous condition you're welcome back at any time
My family and I absolutely love this place! We cannot say enough good things about the house and the owner. The home is warm, spacious, and welcoming. Everything you need is right there. There is plenty to do in the area, but we were just as content to stay put and take in the beautiful ocean views. It is so peaceful and relaxing, we didn't want to ever leave. Francis is the best! He was always available by phone or email and quick to respond. Francis is down to earth and easy to work with. His friendly demeanor is as charming as the house and enhanced our stay. Thank you Francis for such an enjoyable vacation!
Amazing house and the perfect setting
For my son's graduation I had four generations attending and this was the perfect house for the whole family. Great yard to sit and view the water or for a 3 year old to run around.
The pictures don't do the actual house justice. The main level has a large kitchen and several seating areas that made socializing or watching tv easy for everyone.
The house is about a 15-20 minute drive to the Yale campus which was very managable. It was an easy location to Uber from as well.
If we are ever back in the area we would definitely want to stay at this house again.
Francis is very responsive and friendly and a joy to work with.
Great time was had by all.
Perfect Weekend Getaway for Large Group
We had a large group and never felt crowded! The bedrooms are comfortable and the living area/kitchen are huge! There are also 2 dishwashers which was an unexpected plus with our big group. We brought some large "island" floats and anchored them to the shore and spent a whole day out enjoying the beautiful waters. The view from the deck is absolutely amazing. We spent most of the time siting outside just taking in the view. When the tide comes in there isn't much of a beach directly in front of the house but between the kayaks we brought and the floats we didn't care! I was initially worried about parking but there is a small lot that fit 3 of our large vehicles and the remaining people were able to find close street parking. All of the neighbors were kind and accommodating. There was a fresh propane tank that lasted all weekend and even some poles for a hammock, which thankfully, we also brought with us :) We loved this home and will keep an eye out for it next year! Thank you for being a wonderful host and answering all of our questions quickly!
Thank you for your stay and I am glad that you enjoyed it as well and I'm always there for my company to help in any way I can. I hope that you will keep me in mind for your next year's visit you're more than welcome thank you again.
Second time we have rented and we love it
Lovely beachy home, perfect for sitting and admiring the view. We rented kayaks from Indian River Marina and Kayak—not too expensive for multiday rental, and let’s you explore the area. We highly recommend this rental!
Thank you for your stay and I hope you will return again. Your company was well appreciated.
