Summer 2017 Is Fully Booked!

We are excited to announce that Osprey House is reserved through the end of September!

In addition, the first two weeks of October are tentatively blocked off for our own family time at the house — giving us opportunity to do some refurbishing and upkeep — but if you or someone you know is in desperate need of accommodations beginning in October, please do not hesitate to contact me!

We have been blessed with excellent guests in recent months and are looking forward to meeting our summer and autumn families!

Spring can't come soon enough! Daffodils are up and about to bloom in front of Osprey House, but the chilly wind continues to blow! One holds fast to faith that April showers will bring May flowers!

Happy Passover and Easter and all Spring celebrations to you and yours!

January 2017!


Baby, it's cold outside! And some lovely white stuff has fallen
everywhere—including Fairfield's own Jennings Beach! 

Lucky for the current Osprey House guests, snow is speedily removed from walks, steps, and driveway by capable neighborhood helpers. Our first snowfalls of 2017 have not been big ones, and the prediction is that warmer temperatures will melt it all by the week's end. But winter has just begun, and we dare not tempt Mother Nature by minimizing her work!

Well! July was a hot month!


We welcome the cooler temperatures of August, but we recall our happy July meanderings in the charming village of Southport, Ct., very nearby Osprey House.

Stunning sailboats anchor in the harbor of Southport Yacht Club.
Southport Harbor is one of the many lovely sites to drive, bicycle, or hike to from Osprey House on a pretty summer day.

Feeling hungry? We highly recommend Southport's Artisan Restaurant, Tavern, and Garden — it's the perfect setting for lunch or dinner al fresco.  The menu at Artisan encourages you to "eat well and experience cuisine influenced by the rhythm of New England’s seasons and farmstead offerings."
Artisan's garden courtyard is wonderfully pleasant!

June Beach Roses in Fairfield, Ct.!

I wish you could smell these wild roses! The fragrance is simply divine! Every step of our morning walk from Osprey House, through the South Benson Marina to the beach is perfumed with the heady aroma of roses.

Salt air and wild roses combined create the most intoxicating scent!

Bowers of climbing roses festoon the docks!

The channel is adorned with several varieties of rosa rugosa.

These lovely, floppy beauties are right along the marina parking lot.


Just had to show you these tangerine pretties that we passed on the Old Post Road this morning! 

Every season in Fairfield, Ct., is picturesque! June is bustin' out all over!
