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.

Why Paul Moukawsher Owner/Manager chose Mystic

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.

There is a group of us that have stayed at this house for the past four years. We love it very much

  • 5 of 5

This property is awesome and the owner is great to work with. He is making improvements every year and whenever we need his assistance with something he takes care of it immediately. We plan to go back in 2019.

Beautiful, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house, awesome location on the water and close to mystic seaport. Our family spent Thanksgiving there and it was perfect. Plenty of space and utensils to cook. We would have liked to have more seating in the common areas to accommodate our party of six. Overall a good place to stay. Thank you

picture perfect for wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This property fulfilled its promise in every way. From the swan that greeted us upon our arrival, to the gorgeous setting for photos of bride and attendants getting ready, to the canoe my cousins used to paddle to the sea, to the porch for folks to gather and relax the morning after, this was the perfect place to host family and friends for a beautiful mystic wedding.

Thank you Paul!

Great house on the Mystic River with beautiful views. We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely with 5 good size bedrooms & 41/2 bathrooms. It has a large porch with wicker furniture facing the river. Gorgeous sunrise on the river! It is nicely furnished and can accommodate large gatherings. Beautiful setting , lots of parking and conveniently located near downtown Stonington, Mystic, and I-95. Would highly recommend it as a rental.
