Saturday is the changeover day for the minimum week long stay, ideal for a couple. Summertime: bask in the sun on the beach, or curl up with a book in the shade on the garden patio.

Pleasant and Clean Guest Cottage

We found the cottage quiet, pleasant, bright, and clean. We enjoyed the small, private beach and the walking trails nearby. The owners were attentive to our needs, but respectful of our privacy. We loved spending time here and hope to return!

The Ennis Experience

My husband and I spent the last two weeks at the Ennis Cottage. We were sad to leave. It was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years. The cottage is immaculate, quaint and so convenient to restaurants, shopping and a beautiful beach. The owners have done a great job to create such a peaceful oasis. We absolutely love the Ennis Cottage and give it a 10 star rating!

Look no further! This is the Place!

This cottage is perfect. The owners are very kind, welcoming and friendly. The cottage is very quiet, very private, very clean, near a cute little town, great restaurants in Branford. Very spacious living room with vaulted ceiling which makes it seem bigger than it looks on the photos. Nice well equipped kitchen. Cottage has nice private fenced in backyard. Really a great price for this place. Thank you for sharing your cottage with me, it was wonderful.
