Overview

New London House Rental Photos and Description

- 6 BR, 2.5 BA, Sleeps 13+.

Sunny and Charming 6 bedroom 1910 colonial is 4 houses away from Private Beach with newer kitchen, 2.5 baths , hardwood floors, stone fireplace, 1st floor washer and dryer, oil heat, new windows on 1st two floors, and private beach right on Long Island Sound. The house is four doors from the beach with a partial view of the water down the street. Coast Guard Parents: We are about 15 minutes from the Coast Guard Academy.

Submarine School Families: We are also about 15 minutes from Sub Base New London. The first floor has two living room areas, dining room, newer kitchen, and 1/2 bath. Second floor has a recently remodeled bathroom and 4 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 full, 1 with 2 twins). Third floor has two bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom is walk-through and is configured as a family room. It has a queen futon that will sleep two plus a twin. The other has two twins.

We are 3 mins walk to Ocean Beach, 10 mins drive to Harkness Park, & 30 mins drive to the Branford House. All offer seaside weddings.

Lounge Away your Stress on our White Sand Beach.: The home includes beach rights on private Neptune Park Beach which is a lovely white sand beach on Long Island Sound. From that beach you can look out on the open water and see sailboats, ferries, commercial shipping, fishing boats, an occasional submarine or tall ship, 2 lighthouses, and Long Island in the distance. You can also launch a canoe or kayak there. The beach has three distinct sections separated by rocks. One has a diving and sunning platform, another is a small cove, and the third is an open expanse of white sand. Sitting on that part of the beach, you can almost feel like you are in the Caribbean!

September is the best time at the beach, crowds are gone and the water is still warm. In the fall, winter and spring, take beach walks on the board walk, or enjoy a casino weekend, or Thanksgiving and Christmas away from the city noise.

We accept credit cards through Paypal.

The Kids Won’t Be Bored Here, and Neither Will You: They can play volley ball, miniature golf or video games at Ocean Beach Park which is just 1 block away. The park also includes a public beach, restaurant, health club, a bar with waterfront deck, ice cream stand, gift shop, nature area, boardwalk, concerts and an outdoor swimming pool. Or visit an 1839 fort at Fort Trumbull State Park which is just 5 minutes away. Name entertainers perform on the waterfront at nearby Harkness Memorial Park’s season long open air Summer Music festival. Next door to Harkness, you can experience live theater at the Eugene O’Neill Theater. Both are about 10 minutes away.

Tour a Nuclear Submarine, or a Real Whaling Ship : In 30 minutes or less you can be at the Mohegan Sun Casino, Foxwoods Casino, Mystic Seaport (tour old whaling town and authentic ships), Mystic Aquarium, the U. S. Navy’s Submarine Force Museum (tour a real nuclear submarine and simulators), the U. S. Coast Guard Academy, as well as the many fine restaurants. Or see a baseball game with the Norwich Navigators, the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. There are also vineyards located north of Norwich. And you can take a fishing or sail boat cruise.

Tour Mansions of the Golden Era or go Yachting

Tour the grand old mansions of the Gilded Era (circa the Vanderbilts and the Astors) in Newport, RI, which is an hour away. Or experience the yachting lifestyle at America’s Cup Charters. Their Twelves all raced for yachting's most coveted prize, and three actually won the America's Cup. Participation is welcomed but not required! Get involved in the sailing or just sit back and enjoy the sunset on picturesque Narragansett Bay.

About Gloria Woerheide

I am a computer software consultant. This house was my primary residence when I moved to the New London area from Chicago. I love the area and would not have moved out, except that I bought a larger house to turn into a bed and breakfast inn.

Gloria Woerheide purchased this house in 1996

Why Gloria Woerheide chose New London

Originally I came to the area for work and to live by the water. As time passed, I became more and more aware of all of the interesting things to do in the area. As the casinos grew, they brought in more and more first class entertainers and live sporting events. Being from Chicago I am accustomed to having many entertainment choices. In an area like New London County, you wouldn't think you would find the same level of entertainment, but because of the casinos you do.

I count myself lucky to have found this place. So much so, that I plan to retire here one day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived two weeks ago – the grandparents from Newton, Ma and the rest of us from New York, NY. Grandma Bev had spent summers in Neptune Park through her childhood. She has been in heaven. The kids, Dean and Hal have had a blast. We lived at the beach and on the front porch. Could not have asked for better weather no rain at all until the very last day.



We made ourselves right at home in the house, which is great for a big family clan. We love the porch best of all. It has been a wonderful two weeks. We hope to return next summer.

family beach house

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as described - accommodation for members of four families who gathered for Thanksgiving worked very well (children from 10 months to 17 years). It has a well-used feel. Active toddlers and small children felt immediately at home and parents relaxed to find no mahogany or leather furniture or precious breakable knick-knacks around the place! The kitchen is well-equipped; sixteen people sat down at a set table on Thanksgiving day. Everything was very clean (no greasy pans or surfaces!) and there were loads of towels. The washing machine and dryer can take huge loads. There was plenty of hot water and the heating was immediately responsive when the thermostat was adjusted. As soon as you leave the porch of the house Long Island Sound is in view to your left - beach walks and playgrounds are merely a stroll down the street. Plenty of paper products are provided. Internet worked well. There are no nearby grocery stores, but the fridge and freezer are big. The house is very close to neighbors on both sides, but neither house was inhabited while we were there. In warm weather with windows open, I can imagine the neighborhood might be very busy. However, proximity to the private beach can not be beat. Gloria was very responsive and friendly - and she returned our security deposit promptly! We will definitely consider returning.

Family vacation/reunion

  • 5 of 5
The owner (Gloria) was so easy to work with. She watched out for us throughout the week. Neptune beach is such a short walk and so well maintained. The house met all of our needs perfectly. I look forward to making our visit an annual event!

Great house, great owner!

  • 5 of 5
Just spend a wonderful weekend at the beach house. The house is beautiful and had plenty of space for the 7 adults and 5 children in our group. Everything was clean and well maintained. I would absolutely recommend this house to others- the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. There were plenty of blankets and lot of nice extras- folding table, folding chairs, high chairs, etc. Gloria was wonderful to deal with throughout the entire process. She responded to my emails very quickly, answered all my questions, gave detailed information about the rental and provided a list of local stores, restaurants and attractions. The security deposit was returned very quickly. Gloria also allowed us to check in early and check out late. The entire process was completely painless. We are already planning to return next February for another mid winter getaway.

Notes:
Ocean Beach Park which is 1.5 blocks away has a casual restaurant and bar where you can have a snack and a drink on their deck that overlooks the beach and water. They also have a few kiddie rides, swings, spray park, water slide, video game room, a boardwalk and a small 1940s miniature golf area as well as the beach and a nature area. It's a great place to take the family. Captain Scott's is a 5 minute drive away. You can enjoy lobster and fish dinners there at picnic tables that sit right on a small cove. The Eugene O'Neill Theater is a 10-15 minute drive away. They are actually just down the beach, but you have to drive a round about way to get there. They have live theater there in the summer. Harknes Park, located near the Eugene O'Neill Theater is an old waterfront mansion. In the summer they hold live outside concerts with name talent. No smoking in the house.
