    Rustic River Getaway - Kent

    You could call this upscale camping. This two-room rustic cabin sleeps 4 and is right over the river. Keep in mind that the hot shower is outdoors and so is the outhouse which doesn't work for many vacationers.

    BUT, the views are breathtaking and the Appalachian trail is next door to the cabin. There are a full kitchen and outdoor grill with great restaurants nearby in the town of Kent and if you'd like to bring along your floppy-eared friend, dogs are welcome to come along.

    This cute getaway cabin is a 5-star Airbnd and rents at $125 per night. Dates in June and July are wide open!

    Beautiful Home on Connecticut Shore - Groton

    Located in the Eastern Point Beach neighborhood of Groton, Connecticut you'll be able to view spectacular sunsets from the front porch.

    It's only minutes from the shore and a couple of blocks from the public beach. There are some select dates available from May through August but September may be the month to book this charming home at only $195 a night.
