New Haven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The special magic of this unique property captured us on first sight. The peace and tranquility, closeness to nature and spectacular views make this cottage a place difficult to leave.

This Branford shoreline cottage, located in the village of Short Beach, is warm and cozy in the winter and cool in the summer. It provides a peaceful and quiet setting with spectacular views of salt marshes and the Farm River, where Osprey and Egrits nest and feed just off the deck. It's just a short walk to beaches and trailheads and an easy drive to Yale and New Haven.

We offer a SMOKE FREE, natural environment perfect for quiet safe meditative thought and relaxation, walking distance to beaches, hiking trails and gentle beauty of the Connecticut shoreline, while less than 10 miles from the museums, galleries, theater and other cultural attractions of New Haven and Yale.

Super cozy and super convenient

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is exceptionally comfortable in a very comfortable area. It's a good place to go on walks because the beach is not far away.

The facilities are very neat and well-kept. There is a treacherous step as you enter the front door, but it is only treacherous if you do not follow the well-placed instructions to watch your step.

Car access works best for getting back toward New Haven. Also, there are a good selection of grocery stores just outside the comfortable walking distance for many people.

This cottage would work very well for people who have relatives or friends nearby who do have enough living space to fit in the guests. It is a great place.

Perfect marsh hideaway minutes from town!

  • 5 of 5

Loved my time in the Zen Cottage. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views on the deck of the marsh to enjoy breakfast and dinner by. Comfortable beds, excellent for a great nights rest after having an active day of hiking the nearby trails in Branford. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything you need to make a nice dinner. Luckily for me the osprey next just off in the marsh was home to a family of four, with two young ones ready to fledge in September. I was also greeted by a very friendly cat who ate breakfast and dinner with me on the back deck a number of times during my stay. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay for a vacation! I hope to return in the future!

Having lived in New Haven for a number of years, the Branford area is a perfect retreat. Close enough to hop over to the New Haven green for any of the free summer concerts and a nice dinner. Visitors to the area I also recommend heading over to the Stony Creek section of Branford. You can take a nice walk along the Trolley Trail to see the Thimble Islands in the distance, fiddler crabs, egrets and osprey. In the small town of Stony Creek you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner and sit outside and gaze at the boats coming in from the Thimbles. Tours of the Thimbles leave frequently every hour.

Great house on the marsh

  • 5 of 5

What a gem we found in the Zen cottage. The views from the deck were amazing, trolley cars, osprey nests, tides. The house was a very comfortable place to be in. Close to markets and restaurants. Highly recommend the Zen cottage.

Zen Cottage was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We were a little nervous about the small size of the cottage, but were blown away with how incredibly well designed the cottage is and how it met our every need. The backyard and view are superb.
