Milford House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 1-1/2 Bathrooms, sleeps 6
Boasting a spectacular view of Long Island Sound, and nestled on a scenic cove in Point Beach, Milford, CT, this inviting cottage sits on direct waterfront property. Be certain to bring your fishing pole! This lovely home retains all of its charm from 1927, yet has all the modern amenities one would require. Direct water views can be enjoyed from nearly every room of the house. The living room sliding glass doors lead to a sheltered porch, and enclosed yard, especially convenient, if traveling with children. A members-only, sandy beach is a short distance away (water shoes are highly recommended for swimming in front of the home). The serene sunsets on Point Beach are absolutely magnificent! Whether guests wish to relax and enjoy meals overlooking Charles Island, or participate in the nightlife of Milford’s historic downtown, with its many restaurants, Milford has it all! Milford’s Boston Post Road and Main Street (The Green) are havens for those who like to shop.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I rented the beach house at 12 Virginia Street for two weeks. (June 2-June 16, 2012)
The home was in exceptional condition, very clean and well kept. All the necessary items for a long term stay were in place. Coffee Maker, pots, pans, dishes. Everything was clean and well located.
The owners were a pleasure to work with and wanted to make sure we had a good experience. One incident is an excellent example of their concern. On the first Wednesday afternoon we discovered that there was no hot water. With three granddaughters going to prepare for a dance recital on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; this could have been a major problem. I called the owners and they got someone there by 5 PM Wednesday to determine the problem and the situation was corrected by 10:30 AM on Thursday.
The deck is a great place to observe the boat traffic and happenings along the beach. When the tide is out it is easy to walk the 100 yards to a sandy beach, or you can walk there by the street.
There is a lot to do in the area for families such as movies and a trip to Mystic to the Aquarium and Seaport Village.
My wife and I had a great stay and our granddaughters had a wonderful time.
One suggestion for those not from the area (as we were). Only the locals can figure out the street system. To make life easier (it was a time saver for us) use a GPS to navigate around.
