Nestled between Killingworth and Essex, Deep River is situated on the Connecticut River, less than 20 miles from the Long Island Sound. Thanks to nearby waters, homes for rent in Deep River can attract renters with aquatic proclivities.
Nature lovers living in Deep River rentals have easy access to the Bushy Hill Nature Center, which provides programs for those looking to explore the nearby wilderness. The center offers visitors the chance to check out a functioning farm, roam miles of trails and try out an extensive ropes course on more than 700 acres of grounds. A short ride outside of town, Hammonasset Beach State Park allows activities that can be fun for people of all ages. For instance, the park has beaches for swimming, walking trails, campsites, picnic areas and a nature center.
