About Karen Calvanese
We purchased this 'cottage' and turned it into a home where our children enjoyed many, many years of summers in Westbrook. Wonderful memories are carried with me at all times. We would live our summers here in Westbrook and then head back home for the school year. Now, being empty nesters, we would love to see our Westbrook home enjoyed by others who long to be near the ocean.
Karen Calvanese purchased this House in 1989
Why Karen Calvanese chose Westbrook Center
It's directly on the beach in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. It's easily accessible from I-95 and Rt 9 and offers many attractions nearby.
What makes this House unique
After searching for several years, we knew we had finally found the right summer home. The house at the time needed a lot of work, but the road was quiet which was a major concern for us having young children and the beach wasn't rocky which was a big concern as well. We knew we could always turn the house into a home we could love, but the road and the beach were unchangeable. We hated to leave come the school year. Now that our children are grown we have used this Westbrook home in the off season as well. It is beautiful in the winter and even quieter.

Great Family Fun
A great location on Long Island Sound! Beautiful views, accessible and close to everything essential. My son, daughter in law and 2 granddaughters spent the weekend with us and everyone enjoyed the comfort and warmth of Karen's house. My other son, daughter in law and 3 grandkids were able to join us for dinner on Saturday night and everyone had a grand time. The kids enjoyed walking on the beach after the storm and my oldest grandson especially enjoyed beating me in a game of chess sitting by the window looking out to the sound. I highly recommend a stay in Karen's house.
Thank you David! I love hearing how people enjoy my home! Sounds like you had a great time with your family. I hope you’ll be able to visit again. Take care, Karen
Tranquil beautiful and relaxing ! Home was spacious clean and we will stay again!
Thank you! It’s wonderful to hear you felt like you had an escape staying in my home on Middle Beach. Love it this time of year too! Tranquil is a perfect word. Hope to have you again.
This home was perfect for our two small families sharing a house for a local wedding. The accommodations were excellent, clean and welcoming. The location on the beach is spectacular! The owner was very easy to communicate with and work with. Highly recommend! Thank you!
Hi Dan, So happy you enjoyed your time spent at my house! I hope you’ll keep me in mind for your future travel needs. Yes the beach and view is spectacular! Thanks for your kind words.
It is a beautiful area and lovely house.
We had a wonderful visit to this great area. The beach was so picturesque,
the house perfect and lots of places to visit in the vicinity. We did the CT River
Cruise and the CT River Museum which were both very interesting. The whole
family loved it and we hope to return next year.
Thank you Barbara for your kind words. I’m glad to hear you took advantage of some great sights! The beach and view is very picturesque and it’s great you had the opportunity to experience it. Take care
Clean, great location, and responsive owner!
Property is wonderful, well-stocked, very clean, and great for entertaining larger groups. But the best part is the care and responsive from the owner (Karen).
We enjoyed our 5 day stay and would definitely return. Conveniently located between New Haven and Mystic and near 2 outlet malls. Area highlights for us were the Mystic drawbridge and seaport and Gillette Castle.
Robert It was a pleasure having you and your family stay. Very happy to hear you enjoyed my home and the sights near the area. I hope you are able to return again. Take care
