Thank you for visiting my home. Prior to buying my home in Groton Long Point in 1999 my family vacation at Groton Long Point for 11 years for the summers. It has always been a special place for us. My children loved all the summer activities they offer here and couldn't wait for summer vacation at GLP! They were always so very excited to meet up with all their summer friends that they had met here that also came back every year with their families. Now that my children are grown up and have moved away I'm an 'empty nester'. I'm keeping my home so that someday my grandchildren can also experience spending their summers in such a magical place! I open my home to you so you can create similar fond Groton Long Point memories with your own family! I am also a licensed Realtor specializing in Southeastern CT shoreline properties.
Katy purchased this house in 1999
Last September I was looking for a home that my 85 year old mom and I could stay in as well as family visitors for overnight stays from Sept. 13-27. I really needed a bedroom downstairs for my mom because she has difficultly with stairs. I have been renting in Groton Long Point for quite a few years and this house was a gem. The bedroom downstairs has an attached bathroom that is really beautiful and was convenient for my mom. The home is absolutely gorgeous and believe me I have high standards being a homeowner myself in California. I have never rented a home in Ct. with a more kind, caring owner in all my years of coming here. Katy went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was wonderful. The house is one of a kind. The bedrooms are gorgeous (the most comfortable beds/mattresses you will ever sleep in in a rented home-better than a hotel) and the upstairs bathroom is stunning with granite counter-tops. The kitchen is spectacular (huge granite counter top island) and provides you with everything you could ever need to cook. She even provided a variety of different coffee K-Cups for the Keurig that is supplied in the kitchen. A must have. My mom and I and all of my sisters had a fabulous time. The beach is only a block away and was easy for my mom to walk with her walker right around the corner. I will definitively rent this house again and highly recommended it.
The property was lovely, charming and exactly as it was marketed. The condition, amenities and cleanliness were as nice as my own home. I would certainly stay at this property again and would recommend it to my friends.
This precious cottage has everything you need. We were initially drawn due to the 2 King beds as we have some tallies. Then were completely sold when the open kitchen and expansive back porch and another dining area provided space for all to enjoy. In addition the bathrooms are renovated very nicely and everyone was quite comfortable. The family room offered space and size for great family game time fun. Laundry access in basement eased the need for too much luggage. Additional accessories provided and the girls took advantage of the Kayaks and enjoyed. Groton Long Point is truly a haven and your place took it up a notch. All of our group agreen and give big thanks.
We just returned from a fantastic vacation in Groton Long Point. My family has been coming to Groton Long Point for the last 30 years and this is the best home we have found to rent thus far. The house is beautifully decorated looking like it was a house from a magazine and filled with interesting antiques. I would love to get the driftwood paneling in the living room for my own home! It's perfect for enjoying a nice vacation with family at the beach. We enjoyed kayaking, playing tennis and of course all of the Groton long point yacht club activities as usual. The beds were comparable in comfort to the nicest 5 star hotel we've ever stayed in--everyone was so well rested, it really made a difference. The owner was so sweet and accommodating--she checked in with us during our stay to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and surprised us with some fresh corn and peaches from a local farm. Highly recommend! We will definitely be coming again next summer!
The area was beautiful and was surrounded by beaches with activities for young and old. Friendly residents willing to help you and direct you in any manner. Super pleased with our stay and accommodations provided in the house and outside.
First off, we've been renting in Groton Long Point for years and have stayed in many different homes over the years. This house has been the BEST by far, and we will be returning. The location is excellent--just a block from East Dock, South Beach, the lagoon, and the tennis courts/playground. We really enjoyed the outdoor space for barbequing and entertaining--most houses in GLP are lacking any usable outdoor space, and this house is definitely an exception. The owners were fantastic--they were very proactive to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy with our stay. The house is beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and it's clear that the owner took went to great lengths to decorate and furnish the home with beautiful things (most other rentals we've seen in GLP are furnished somewhat cheaply/shabbily--clearly meant to be rented, but definitely not the case with this house). Such a great find. I highly recommend.
The GLP Yacht Club offers a variety of events for adults. Social events include our popular cocktail parties plus at least one other major event each month. These have included wine tastings, comedy nights, themed dances, scavenger hunts, and other fun events. Each month also includes a Dinner on the Porch, a casual bring-your-own (food and beverage) event with light entertainment. July also features our very popular Family Night, held under a tent at South Beach and featuring assorted activities for children. You can bring your own food, or buy from the vendors there. Family Night is followed by fireworks off of Main Beach. Other adult events open to our members have included bocce, card nights, volleyball, and sailing races.
Our youth members are kept busy with a variety of activities for different age groups. For the youngest set, ages 4 to 8, Monday nights feature the Kiddie Dances, a long-time GLP tradition. Kiddie Dances are held in Clark Hall from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. One Monday each month is either the Costume Dance or the Hat Dance. Children can participate singly or in groups, and creativity is strongly encouraged! Meet at the lifeguard stand at Main Beach for a parade to Venetian before heading to Clark Hall for the dance and prizes.
Tweens (ages 9 to 12) have their own activities starting at 7:00 p.m. These include the popular, GLP-wide scavenger hunt (meet at Clark Hall), a sand castle contest (Main Beach), and Capture the Flag (sports field). Days, activities, and locations may vary so check the calendar for details.
The sports-minded have a variety of options. On Friday afternoons each month, there are a series of meets: track, novelty (both at the sports field), and swim (South Beach). Children ages 5 to 12 can participate in these meets. Other sports activities such as volleyball (volleyball court) and dodgeball (at the sports field) are also offered. Check the calendar for details on the dates, activities, and ages.
On Friday nights, parents can take a little time off while their children enjoy the Kiddie Movies at 7:00 p.m. in Clark Hall. There is a minimal fee, and the movies (all G or PG rated) are listed on our calendar.
Teens have their own movies at 9:00 on Fridays, plus other events like an off-Point baseball game or bowling activity to keep them busy.
