A great, clean, bright space and a very thoughtful host. I would absolutely recommend a stay at Doree's if you need to be in the area!

A quaint, comfy apartment with adorable decor. It was the perfect spot for a relaxing weekend get away. Convenient location and wonderful amenities. Doree offered great suggestions for dining and other activities. We would love to come back if we're in the area again. Doree was a fabulous hostess!

The Nest was a very clean and comfortable space to call home while we explored Essex & surrounds. Doree was a terrific host, available when we needed help but otherwise she left us to treat the space as our own. It was close to great restaurants and beautiful walks. A great place to stay.

The apartment was very nice and clean, it was all set up for us and Doree even left some muffins for us when we arrived! Doree's place had everything we needed and was very communicative, she even helped us find potential places to visit after our stay at her place. The house is a little out there, but it's in a really beautiful area, and is a brief drive from all sorts of beaches and hiking spots. I would definitely recommend The Nest to anyone looking for a nice, intimate place to stay near the coast in Connecticut.

The Nest was absolutely everything I was hoping for and more! Easy to get to, and Doree is a fantastic host. My best friend and I stayed the night before her wedding and then she and her new hubby on the night of their wedding and we all were more than pleased! Doree had chocolate covered strawberries and chilled champagne waiting for us so that we could celebrate as soon as we walked in! Extremely thoughtful and the place was exactly what it looked like in pictures! We all decided that if we ever need some time away from home again, this is the perfect little oasis to spend some time relaxing. Thank you for a wonderful stay Doree!

Our visit to Doree's "The Nest" was fantastic. The apartment is very clean, comfortable, beachy and beautiful. The setting is private and idyllic, and Doree is the perfect host. Communication and check-in were easy. It was lovely to find fresh muffins and beautiful flowers waiting for us in the apartment! The location, near Essex and Centerbrook is terrific. Doree was generous with restaurant suggestions, extra beach towels and a late check-out... she could not have been more gracious. Highly recommend and look forward to coming back for another escape from NYC!

My husband and I spent three days at the wonderful nest and absolutely enjoyed it. The place is beautiful and relaxing, just as it looks on the pictures. Doree was a fantastic host. I had mentioned that it was my birthday and she was nice enough to leave me a birthday cupcake. She was awesome with sharing suggestions for restaurants, activities, beaches, etc. very great experience. Would definitely go back.
