Old Lyme is a classic, small New England Town within easy reach of Boston, Providence and New York. Hawk's Nest Beach is a private, friendly, family-oriented neighborhood.
Nothing extraordinary, just a great, single - level cottage directly on the beach, the view's across Long Island Sound to the eastern most tip of Lond Island. To the left is the Atlantic Ocean.
My family and I enjoyed the cottage. It was so nice to see sunrise abd set from back porch. This place (Hawks Nest Beach) is great place for family andcouples. We will be coming back in near future.
My family was happy to find a last minute ocean front property to take a vacation. We have an infant and were excited that the owner had a washer machine so that we could pack less and wash while we were there. When we arrived the owner was not there and we had to wait for her so that we could get into the cottage. The cottage itself was fine. However the cable was disconnected from the house leaving us without cable for the week. When we went to use the washing machine the hoses were not long enough to hook up to the bathroom sink. At the end of the vacation we cleaned the cottage as we would our own house. We are very neat people. My husband vacuumed all rooms and her sliding glass door track so that it would work. We scrubbed the bathroom and cleaned the kitchen. The day after our departure we sent the owner a text stating we had a great time and also asked if we left the cottage to her satisfaction. We received no response. A week and a half later we sent her another text asking when we would expect to receive our deposit back. This time she replied she sends all security deposits out at the end of the month. At the end of the month we received a partial security deposit with a note attached stating " kitchen floor, fridge, microwave,and stove top dirty" She says it took 2 hrs to clean @ $75 and hour. We again sent her a text to contact us so we could discuss this issue. Again no response. The next day i called her and left a message. This time she called back. I started by telling her i believe you have us mixed up with someone else. I also asked her why she never responded to our text the day after our departure if we left the place such a mess. Her response "she was tired". Now i think we all know how much effort it takes to reply the word "No" and hit the send button. So i ask why she said nothing about the place being a mess when i contacted her about when we could expect our security deposit. That time she had replied but made no mention of the place being left a mess.She said the mess was caused by spaghetti. Now folks I can tell you for a fact that we never had spaghetti. Which again i told her i believe you have us mixed up with someone else.She did not want to hear anything i had to say. Now keep in mind its a small cottage. I think if we left the place such a mess that it took 2 hrs to clean the items she had listed she would of had no problems responding to our earlier text. I highly recommend Hawks Nest just find yourself another rental
We went to the cottage right at the beginning of peak season and had a wonderful time!!! The cottage was a traditional New England cottage and was right on the beach! The screened porch was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay, adults and children alike. The only reason I did not give it a 5/5 was because of some water issues we had while we there, but I must say the hostess was WONDERFUL and took care of things as soon as she possibly could.
We are hoping to be able to return again next summer, and we could not recommend the owner and her lovely Shore cottage enough! It truly represents what beach cottage living is in that area of the CT shore!
My family and I rented the cottage for a week and had an amazing time. It is a very traditional cottage that is right on the beach with a beautiful view of the water. This is a great place to rent for a family, but also a couple to enjoy a nice get away. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone. The family who owns the cottage are very friendly people and easy to work with. Hoping to rent here again!!!
