Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Riverview Cottage is one of Mystic's finest waterfront locations. The house, boathouse, and barn are perched directly on the Mystic River. It includes 1.25 acres of quiet land with mature trees and is completely air conditioned. It is an ideal location for families who want a quiet refuge of kayaking and canoeing in close proximity to Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic Aquarium, historic downtown Mystic, and the neighboring beaches of Rhode Island and the Mystic area. Riverview Cottage has a long, waterfront porch furnished with comfortable wicker and rockers as well as an even larger balcony above and a terrace adjoining the lower porch. The house is situated on a large tidal cove populated by osprey, herons, egrets, swans and ducks. A fragrant border of honeysuckle runs along the waterfront sometimes attracting hummingbirds when in bloom. It includes a full kitichen, well-stocked library and a comfortable studio-apartment over the detached garage. The property includes a large boathouse the owners use for storage.

Keywords: Waterfront, water sports, kayak, canoe, boat, bird watching.

About Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager

The house belongs to a local family that raised four children there. The family spent many years living and playing in this tranquil park-like setting.

Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1996

Why Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager chose Connecticut Shore

Mystic is between New York and Boston and an easy trip to Providence, Hartford and New Haven yet it offers superb access to beaches, boating, local seafood and world class museums and entertainment.

What makes this house unique

In addition to canoeing, kayaking and birdwatching, the location is a favorite because it is on a scenic road near nature trails just above downtown Mystic and located near the Mystic Aquarium, and Mystic Seaport. This is a historic home.

Stunning!!!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful retreat-not on top of your neighbors. Rented for an annual MDW family vacation, and it was perfect. Everyone loved it. My four year old niece didn't want to leave! !! Check in/out was extremely easy, and was a no hassle process the entire time. As stated on previous posts, the only recommendation is for a larger sitting area aroun the TV or additional TV's . Otherwise, our stay was terrific.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful and beautiful location for a well-appointed and graceful house! We rented it to accommodate our large family during Conn Coll graduation weekend, and couldn't imagine a better spot for such a gathering. It really felt like a vacation to all --from sitting on the porch for morning coffee, to paddling about the river in the canoe and kayaks or grilling on the patio overlooking the water in the evening. The house is ample, with many social spaces inside and out that are thoughtfully furnished. The kitchen is well-equipped --many dishes, glasses, pots, pans, and then a wet bar area with a beverage fridge and plenty of wine glasses. The place is generally well-maintained and in good working order. Paul, the owner, responded promptly to all communications related to the booking. He was at the property to greet us when we arrived and personally tended to a couple of things that were not working quite right. A joy of a stay and would definitely recommend this place.

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! We had friends and family come to enjoy our daughters wedding and the house provided the perfect space for us. It had everything we could ask for plenty of space for everyone to get dressed and the most beautiful views for pictures! We plan to go back again to relax and enjoy beautiful Mystic!

The property is breathtaking so relaxing. Clean and perfectly kept

  • 5 of 5

We planned a moms trip away for the weekend. It's been a while since a bunch of us have been able to get together. The home was perfect

We all relaxed looking over the water and got to catch up. The property is in perfect location to downtown, literally 10 minutes away from anything we wanted to do in the area. Paul was so great to work with he got back to me right away with any questions I had.

Defiantly a place I would stay again when I plan a trip in the area
