Last House on the River

Historic "Old Mystic" home with Pool - Cozy, fully equipped on the Mystic River

Experience the allure of this historical Colonial home in charming Old Mystic. The perfect location! 5 min from “Old Mystic” Villiage & Mystic Aquarium. 10 min from downtown Mystic and 15-20 min from Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos!

This property can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests with its first-floor family room, living room with dining area, and office/bedroom. On the second floor, you'll find two bedrooms, one with additional space perfect for smaller family members and a convenient washer and dryer.

"Last House on The River" was originally built in 1797; along with its many updates, it still holds many of its original features, like the warming box in the fireplace, the steep, narrow and tapered custom colonial staircase, and the stone steps that lead from the backyard down to the top of the Mystic River. The beautifully updated kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances that will impress any chef. The modern appliances make a perfect complement to the historic charm of this home. Gas stove top. Guests can choose to cook their meals or order from the numerous delicious and award-winning local restaurants.

The living room is very cozy, and for those nights when you want to relax, the smart TVs are fully equipped for your movie-watching needs. The original 1797 fireplaces provide an added touch of warmth and charm but are just for aesthetics now. Beautiful old-style wide plank floors keep with the historic charm of Mystic while offering modern touches throughout the home. This house represents the perfect combination of new and old, giving your stay a unique character.

The backyard patio is a true highlight of this vacation home. It offers the luxury of an inground pool and combines an attractive and inviting atmosphere that stands out from other properties. The patio is an ideal spot to relax and unwind, bask under the sun in the comfort of lounge chairs while sipping refreshing drinks. The lush and verdant surroundings lend a serene ambiance that makes you feel like a peaceful oasis. The pool area offers a beautiful yard that emphasizes the home's charm, creating a beautiful space to gather with friends and family. Plus, the Mystic River anchors the back of the property, providing just one more magical touch.

The Pool is naturally heated by the sun and is typically open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Weather dependant.

3/5 stars
This historic home was charming and the pool was nice. The stairs were very narrow and steep but that’s to be expected in a historic home. The shower didn’t have consistent hot water - it was very hot for maybe the first 45 seconds and then only cool/lukewarm. Additionally, we were apparently expected to bring our own toilet paper. There was only one partially used roll in each bathroom which wasn’t even enough to last the 2 nights we stayed. I’ve never rented a home that didn’t supply toilet paper and found that incredibly bizarre (and also frustrating… especially considering the cost was $2,000 for 2 nights after fees). There also were no cleaning supplies for the counters for nights we cooked in. We were also asked to water the patio plants which seemed a bit of a strange request. The room and window unit air conditioners were sufficient to keep the house cool. Aside from cobwebs on most of the ceilings the home was decently clean.

I wish you had called us regarding the toilet paper. We typically leave a fresh roll for each new guest and another several rolls in the bathroom cabinet. The water all depends on what else is being run and how much water has been used for the day. In no way would we expect you to water the plants for a 2-night stay. We ask our longer guests if they wouldn't mind watering during the hot months so that future guests can continue to enjoy the amazing plants our homeowner has planted for guests. We also mention that if longer guests are unable to water the potted plants we would send someone to do so. We are extremely accessible and accommodating. If you had just given us a ring and made us aware we could have made sure your experience was at the level we strive for.
