IMAGINE!

Imagine your family enjoying beautiful Guthrie beach (only a two minute walk away) and seeing views of two nearby lighthouses (with binoculars, you'll be able to see two more lighthouses).

You can book off-season for weekends, weeks, or longer. Let us know your needs if you need temporary housing during this time.

Recent Guest Review:

'We've been renting houses at the Connecticut shore for six years, and your house is by far the nicest! There was plenty of room for the family and all of our friends and extended family who came to visit. Even with three messy teenagers, there's so much room the house always felt clean and comfortable. This has been such a relaxing vacation with all (and more) of the comforts of home.'

The London Family, Columbia, MD 8/8/09

THE HOUSE:

We are located just four houses in from the water- a two minute walk, with a lovely water view from the front yard. On the first floor, there is a large eat-in kitchen, a dining room that easily seats eight, living room, sun-room with table and chairs, and a full bathroom. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (all with queen beds) and a full bathroom. Additionally, upstairs, there is a den with 60 inch flat screen TV that converts to a sleeping area for three (futon and single sofa bed). The den has sliding doors that open to an outside deck.

Also, an upstairs sitting area can sleep one adult or two children on a futon. In the back yard the house has a large deck with table, lots of seating, and charcoal grill. We have converted the one-car garage to a play area with a ping-pong table, games, toys, and books.

The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, paper supplies. The spacious kitchen has new appliances including dishwasher, refrigerator with in-the-door icemaker and gas range/oven. It is equipped with pots, pans, utensils and dishes. There is a microwave, blender, toaster and coffee maker. You can eat at the kitchen table or serve a larger group in the dining room, have an intimate meal in the sunroom or have a family picnic out on the back porch/deck. Smoking outdoors only, please.

Our child-friendly home has a pack and play, high chair, stroller, beach toys, Ikea plastic ware, and lots of kids' toys and DVDs.

During the summer season, the house is available by the week only. Your stay begins Sunday at 4 pm and extends until the following Sunday at 11 am. During the rest of the year, it is available for rent by the weekend, week, month, or longer. We do not charge a separate cleaning fee; the home is cleaned between guests and the fee is included in our rates.

** Families of Students or Servicemen **

COAST GUARD ACADEMY

We are just ten minutes away from the U.S Coast Guard Academy.

NAVY SUBMARINE BASE

We are about 20 minutes from the US Navy Submarine Base Groton/ New London.

CONNECTICUT COLLEGE (10 minutes) and MITCHELL COLLEGE (2 minutes)

THE BEACH:

Private Guthrie Beach is sandy and pleasant, only steps away and right on Long Island Sound. The beach is yours to enjoy while renting the house. It has restrooms and is attended in season for your comfort and security but there is no lifeguard on duty. There is a roped swimming area and sunning/diving platform. Bring your picnic lunch and enjoy the picnic tables. We provide beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. The house has plenty of beach towels and beach toys for the family!

THE AREA:

Bring along your bike and take a ride or walk along the seawall about a half mile to Ocean Beach Park with its boardwalk, kids waterpark, rides, food and activities.

Drive five minutes and hop on a Ferry to Block Island or Orient Point, Long Island. Mystic is only a ten to fifteen minute drive away and features Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium. A 20-30 minute car ride gets you to the three largest casinos in the world, Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Foxwoods, with entertainment and dining options too numerous to count. The family will LOVE the new Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan! And all of this is only two hours from Boston and 2 1/2 hours from New York City.

Summer at the Connecticut shore is beautiful! One of the high points of summer in New London is Sailfest - a celebration of ships and the sea in early July, with its huge fireworks display over a harbor absolutely alive with colorful boats and visitors. Walk a few blocks, pick out your viewing spot and let others deal with the traffic.

New London is an arts lovers haven with galleries, artist colonies, live music, theatre and performing arts.

ALSO NEARBY:

Harkness Memorial State Park, Rocky Neck State Park, Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium. Ferries to Block Island and Long Island are ten minutes away. Connecticut College, Mitchell College, and Coast Guard Academy are close by. To get to New York or Boston, interstate 95 is nearby or there is a nearby train station, an Acela Express stop. A Greyhound Bus station is also in New London. Local buses (SEAT) can take you to malls and downtown.

Great House, Great Location, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here! A big thanks to Randy and Carolyn for being so helpful and making sure we had everything we needed. A short walk from the beach, a short drive from Mystic, and a clean, nice house. Comfortably fit 10 adults. The house and experience exceeded our expectations and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks and the house was very comfortable. It was spacious enough that we had somewhere for all 11 of us to sleep. The house is close to the beach and is part of a beautiful neighborhood. We went down to walk on the beach several times and spent one afternoon there. The attendants on the beach were friendly, they set up some chairs for us to sit in while the kids played. The owners of the house are also very friendly and easy to deal with, either by phone or email. They were very quick to resolve any issue we were having. The toaster stopped working one evening and the next morning Carolyn brought us a new one. When the previous renters let them know that there had been a problem with the shower, they got up with me right away and worked out a time for a plumber to come and look at it. It was a very pleasant stay and I would definitely stay here again. I only wish the weather had been a little less rainy on our trip. Oh, and my damage deposit on the house was refunded within a week of our leaving.

Excellent Location / Wonderful Hosts

  • 4 of 5
This is the perfect economical beach and stay location. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating and really provided exactly what they advertised. The charming lighthouse down the street and beach just a short walk really add to the entire experience. The home is comfortable and warm and provides a clean comfortable vacation spot. If you get a chance to explore New London as well, I highly recommend it.

Thank you Carolyn for all your help and for letting us rent your house!

June 26, 2007Carolyn,As you know, this is the first time my family; daughters & son-in-laws, grandchildren and mother, have ever vacationed together, and we could not have chosen a better house to do it in, or a more gracious person to work out the details with. It seems that you thought of everything when equipping this house for your guests, and added many things you would find in your own home. My daughters remarked on several occasions about the way the house was decorated, very warm and cozy with all those little touches that I know you had a hand in! And it was so spacious we could all find a place to relax, whether on the beautiful backyard deck, the sun porch for morning coffee, or the spacious 2nd floor den with big screen TV. The private beach was great for the grandchildren (and Papa) to make sandcastles and for me to fly kites, and by providing the beach chairs, coolers and umbrella; you gave us more room to pack things we needed for our trip. My daughter went to Mitchell College, and this was a great opportunity for her to see her old dormitory (Fairhaven), visit Ocean Beach, and fall in love with the New London area all over again. What a great place to vacation, and what great people to do business with – I almost feel like we are already friends. Don’t know when the next vacation will be, but you can be sure if we decide to visit your area again we will be giving you a call. Carol Campbell & Family

What a great place. The kids (3 and 5) had a great time at the beach and walking down to the kiddy ride park at Ocean Beach. The back yard was so peacefull and the rooms felt just like home. Keep up the great work and we will see you next summer.
