The NeighborhoodKnowles Landing: This quiet River oasis was once a destination for vacationers to get out of the City back during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many would travel by steamboat to the Landing where there was a steamboat house for tickets and baggage (the steamboat house burned down before the property was purchased, but the foundation still remains in front of the dock). Shipbuilding History: Situated atop a commanding hill, this landmark Victorian was built in 1886 by the daughter and son-in-law of local steamboat Captain Edward W. Simpson. Middle Haddam was home to more than a dozen sea captains – some credited with capturing British ships off Long Island during the Revolutionary War. Trade to the West Indies is documented as far back as the 1770s. The local taverns, shops and inns, which were later converted to lovely homes and a local library, enjoyed financial success until the early 1930s when steamboat service died out along the Connecticut River. The Connecticut River: The Connecticut River has been named one of the “Last Great Places” by the Nature Conservancy. One of the most beautiful rivers in the world, it has no industrialization along its shores and its waters are rated clean enough for anything but drinking. It is a summer breeding ground for osprey and the largest concentration of wintering eagles on the East coast when it is a common sight to see eagles flying above the River in search of food. The Neighborhood: Walk to the Middle Haddam Library, just up the street with a wonderful collection of books, DVDs and historical references, or take a stroll down Shad Row past the waterfalls and onto Shipyard Road. The Middle Haddam Post Office is also an easy 10-minute walk over a wooden bridge off of Blacksmith Road. Nearby: Stop & Shop and other stores are just 2 miles away up RT 66E. Less than a mile away is the best takeout pizza in the area. Great hiking at the 130-acre Hurd State Park is just 2.2 miles south off of 151, or travel east on 66 and follow the signs to the East Hampton Air Line State Park trailhead – a great path that extends 22 miles to Windham. Local Entertainment, Theatre & Art: Mohegan Sun Casino is an easy 32-mile drive, and the award-winning Goodspeed Opera House is 9.5 miles off of Route 151 (Fiddler on the Roof is playing from 6/27-9/7. Be sure to visit nearby Chester with wonderful one-of-a-kind shops, fantastic restaurants, the Norma Terris Theatre and Connecticut’s acclaimed contemporary impressionist artist Leif Nilsson’s Studio – all less than 15 miles away. Destinations: Gillette’s Castle and State Park are just 13 miles south in East Haddam. The visitor’s center and tour provides an exceptional view into William Gillette’s inspiring life as an inventor, playwright and actor. In neighboring Portland, check out the Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park – an outdoor adventure sports park with rock climbing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, cliff jumping, scuba diving and much more! Kayakers: For the sports-minded adventurers, you might enjoy paddling down the CT River to the wonderful Blue Oar Restaurant (we can arrange to pick you and the kayaks up at the Blue Oar). Outside waterfront casual dining with a Caribbean flair. It’s BYOB, open 7 days a week through Labor Day for lunch and dinner. You want to plan to paddle down with the current going out. Depending on wind, current, paddle speed and rest stops, it will take you 2 to 3 hours. Golfers: Less than 6 miles away is the public 18-hole regulation Portland Golf Course set in the rolling hills of the Connecticut River Valley. Challenging and enjoyable for players of all ages – excellent turf conditions, restaurant, pro shop and friendly staff. Food Lovers: Across the River, Middletown boasts 133 restaurants from sushi and Thai to Italian and Mexican. Plan to go to O’Rourke’s Diner, for a special breakfast treat; just over the Middletown-Portland Bridge on the left – get there before 8:30 to avoid the line out the door on weekends. Local Vineyard: Priam Vineyards in Colchester, just 10.5 miles from Knowles Landing, offers tours and wine tastings March thru December. Concerts are scheduled every Friday night ($12/ticket). Wesleyan University Center for the Arts: Check out Wesleyan's calendar for wonderful concerts, film and dance programs just 8 miles away! Getting AroundCome by car, plane or boat!

Bradley International Airport is about 40 minutes north off of I-91N. By boat, we are just south of Daymarker 72, seaplanes have landed here, picked up passengers at the dock and refueled at the East Haddam Airport. Other Things to NotePhoto Portraits: Whether you are traveling by yourself, with friends or with family - think about scheduling a photo session with me. We can shoot in my studio with different backgrounds...or select a favorite global destination and voila - you are in the mountains of Peru or a cabaret in Paris! Both the River and the Captain's House offer endless possibilities for locations. And ask me about getting a 'family' discount ;) Samples available.

Wraparound Porch When I give my guests a tour of the Captain's House and bring them out to the wraparound porch with the awesome river views, the lush green trees across the water, the gentle sloping lawn to the tennis court and dock -- they absolutely melt.

I have mooring whips which worked well for my 25' fiberglass Chris Craft and power is available. The Connecticut River The Connecticut River stretches 407 miles from Canada to Long Island Sound and captivates even the most reserved observer with its beauty. Known to have the best carp and channel cat fishing in the country -- 42 pounds is the state record and was caught in the Connecticut River. We also have the best striped bass fishing in the Northeast! Every Spring, the bass chase the herring up the River. A salt water fish, bass have a high tolerance for fresh water. Striped bass over 40 pounds have been caught in the River and there are bass tournaments all season - many fishermen cast in front of the dock where the fish like to gather. In the late afternoon, seize the opportunity to sit on the dock and just watch the River life. Be patient and you may see the fish jump, an eagle soar, or blue heron fly by in search of their next meal. Fishing If you would like to fish, you will need to purchase an inland fishing license - $28 for residents (resident senior citizens 65 and over can register for free) and $55 for nonresidents which can be done online. Who Should Stay Ideal for couples, groups of friends, families with teenage or older children, history buffs, adventurers, nature and water lovers, fishing enthusiasts, runners, bicyclists, boaters, artists, writers, lovers of life. This property is not ideal for individuals who might have difficulty with many stairs and hills. Knowles Landing This quiet River oasis was once a destination for vacationers to get out of the City back during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many would travel by steamboat to the Landing where there was a steamboat house for tickets and baggage (the steamboat house burned down before the property was purchased, but the foundation still remains in front of the dock). Shipbuilding History Situated atop a commanding hill, this landmark Victorian was built in 1886 by the daughter and son-in-law of local steamboat Captain Edward W. Simpson. Middle Haddam was home to more than a dozen sea captains - some credited with capturing British ships off Long Island during the Revolutionary War. Trade to the West Indies is documented as far back as the 1770s. The local taverns, shops and inns, which were later converted to lovely homes and a local library, enjoyed financial success until the early 1930s when steamboat service died out along the Connecticut River. The Connecticut River The Connecticut River has been named one of the "Last Great Places" by the Nature Conservancy. One of the most beautiful rivers in the world, it has no industrialization along its shores and its waters are rated clean enough for anything but drinking. It is a summer breeding ground for osprey and the largest concentration of wintering eagles on the East coast when it is a common sight to see eagles flying above the River in search of food. The Neighborhood Walk to the Middle Haddam Library, just up the street with a wonderful collection of books, DVDs and historical references, or take a stroll down Shad Row past the waterfalls and onto Shipyard Road.

Wraparound Porch When I give my guests a tour of the Captain's House and bring them out to the wraparound porch with the awesome river views, the lush green trees across the water, the gentle sloping lawn to the tennis court and dock…they absolutely melt.

The Connecticut River stretches 407 miles from Canada to Long Island Sound and captivates even the most reserved observer with its beauty. Known to have the best carp and channel cat fishing in the country – 42 pounds is the state record and was caught in the CT River. We also have the best striped bass fishing in the Northeast! Every Spring, the bass chase the herring up the River. A salt water fish, bass have a high tolerance for fresh water. Striped bass over 40 pounds have been caught in the River and there are bass tournaments all season – many fishermen cast in front of the dock where the fish like to gather. In the late afternoon, seize the opportunity to sit on the dock and just watch the River life. Be patient and you may see the fish jump, an eagle soar, or blue heron fly by in search of their next meal. If you would like to fish, you will need an inland fishing license which can be purchased online. Who Should Stay Ideal for couples, groups of friends, families with teenage or older children, history buffs, adventurers, nature and water lovers, fishing enthusiasts, runners, bicyclists, boaters, artists, authors, lovers of life. This property is not ideal for individuals who might have difficulty with many stairs and hills. Knowles Landing: This quiet River oasis was once a destination for vacationers to get out of the City back during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many would travel by steamboat to the Landing where there was a steamboat house for tickets and baggage (the steamboat house burned down before the property was purchased, but the foundation still remains in front of the dock). Shipbuilding History: Situated atop a commanding hill, this landmark Victorian was built in 1886 by the daughter and son-in-law of local steamboat Captain Edward W. Simpson. Middle Haddam was home to more than a dozen sea captains – some credited with capturing British ships off Long Island during the Revolutionary War. Trade to the West Indies is documented as far back as the 1770s. The local taverns, shops and inns, which were later converted to lovely homes and a local library, enjoyed financial success until the early 1930s when steamboat service died out along the Connecticut River. The Connecticut River: The Connecticut River has been named one of the “Last Great Places” by the Nature Conservancy. One of the most beautiful rivers in the world, it has no industrialization along its shores and its waters are rated clean enough for anything but drinking. It is a summer breeding ground for osprey and the largest concentration of wintering eagles on the East coast when it is a common sight to see eagles flying above the River in search of food. The Neighborhood: Walk to the Middle Haddam Library, just up the street with a wonderful collection of books, DVDs and historical references, or take a stroll down Shad Row past the waterfalls and onto Shipyard Road. The Middle Haddam Post Office is also an easy 10-minute walk over a wooden bridge off of Blacksmith Road. Nearby: Stop & Shop and other stores are just 2 miles away up RT 66E. Less than a mile away is the best takeout pizza in the area. Great hiking at the 130-acre Hurd State Park is just 2.2 miles south off of 15, or travel east on 66 and follow the signs to the East Hampton Air Line State Park trailhead – a great path that extends 22 miles to Windham. Local Entertainment, Theatre & Art: Mohegan Sun Casino is an easy 32-mile drive, and the award-winning Goodspeed Opera House is 9.5 miles off of Route
