Overview

Niantic Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 10

Stay at one of Niantic's original cottages at Giants Neck Beach and enjoy the lazy days of summer. This charming cottage boasts an old fashioned screened in porch where you can read, relax in your rocking chair and enjoy the summer breezes. Wake to views overlooking the inlet where heron and seagulls play. Kayak, fish on your own or from the 'Mijoy' for the big catches, crab, swim or take in lunch at a nearby restaurant. Walk to your private beach or keep going to Rocky Neck State Park where you can hike or bike the many trials. After a day at the beach, bring the family together around the large dining room table for cards or a game or sit back and enjoy a movie on the big TV. Want something different? Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun Casinos for gambling or world class entertainment are nearby. Enjoy the Essex Stream Train, antiquing, shop at the outlet stores in Westbrook and Clinton, visit Mystic Seaport/Aquarium, or just step into town for a movie or ice cream.

Great week...amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cozy, vintage cottage. The owner, Susan, was very nice and responded quickly to our inquiries. The view was absolutely amazing! The private beach was perfect for our family and so close (very convenient). Giant's Neck beach is so nice...an amazing area! We thought it was a little difficult that the upstairs did not have enclosed ceilings...hard with young kids. Other than that, the stay was great. The pictures and memories we have of that week are priceless. We will be back! Thank you for sharing your family home with us!

Charming Cotttage in a Fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time at this cottage. The property manager, Susan, was very helpful and personable. The rates for staying here for a week were reasonable as well. I spent a week in Niantic with my wife and two kids. Everyone had a blast! The house itself is simple yet very enjoyable. If you are looking for a great place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of every day life, this is the spot for you :) My wife and I enjoyed the view from the backyard of the house; it overlooks a saltwater marsh where we saw a great deal of wildlife. Across the street from the house is a playground that our two boys, ages 2 and 5, were able to play at. There is a lot to do in town, including a movie theatre, lots of restaurants, and shopping. There are several beaches to visit as well. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

We rented this cottage last summer and I hope the owner has made improvements. I can handle anything if I can get a decent night's sleep. However the blankets were totally inadequate and the mattresses were horrible. In fact we left a day early as my back couldn't take another night. Every surface was covered with a layer of dust, and all windows were kept open with blocks of wood. I know the owner supplied very little but toilet paper would have been helpful.

We did however enjoy the location and the friendly people in the area and are planning to rent another cottage at Giant's Neck this summer.
