I am sitting outside at this cottage able to write this using the owner provided wireless internet, enjoying the quiet, even though we are a quick 5 minute walk from the beach and right on a main street from the beach. Just heard two ladies walking by that couldn't see me sitting out here that said "Oh,look at that, there is a place in behind there, it's a little fairy cottage." That's exactly what I thought when I saw it online! The pictures are exactly how it looks, although landscape is even more lush as the end of summer approaches. A nice surprise is the arbor of grapevine that compliments the rest of the plantings. I will be pulling up a chair (one already there if I needed it) before the week is over to sit under it and read a book.If you forget to bring one of your own,no worries, the owner has a small library of classics to choose from. Kitchen is well appointed, don't need to bring a thing, you can make anything you want.We are loving it. Did this on the spur of the moment (as I was procrastinating doing a research paper for a summer class) and the owner was just awesome to work with. Every inch of the house is used but does not feel crowded and to have 1.5 baths was a really nice amenity. Unusual in a cottage... If she can accommodate us again, we will be back. A gem of a place- hope to come back in 2015! It's magical here,a nice break for a busy family who needed some solace....

Owner's Response: So happy when tenants enjoy the cottage. And thank you for being a great tenant!
We have been coming to this beach for many years and have rented this cottage for a couple years. Perfect for our family. Plenty of parking, very close to beach, unique and shady private yard. We will definitely keep renting here!
This house was absolutely fantastic!! Went down this past summer with 3 friends for a week. There is literally not one complaint I can make. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. She was quick to respond to emails, always available, and made the process so easy! The yard is so private, which was the best part. The house is set back and very private. Big kitchen and living room, 4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and best of all the price is right! Definitely hope to come back next year. Honestly, can not say enough good things. Parking was tight, but we made it work. It's so close to the beach and beach bars, which is always a plus! I would recommend this house in a heartbeat!
The cottage is one block from Soundview Beach in Old Lyme, CT. The shore is perfect for long walks. This is mostly a family community. Hartford Ave is one block away and has shops, ice cream, and attractions for children (like a Merry-go-Round). There is a homemade donut shop half a block away. The Pavillion, a restaurant/bar, is on the beach at the end of the block.
Other Activities: casinos, merry-go-round, ice cream, shops, bar/cafe on beach
