Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely, relaxing, rustic cottage in a quiet seaside community. If you're looking for luxury or action, go elsewhere, but if you're looking for long, slow afternoons of reading, swimming or simply sitting on the front porch - it's hard to beat this spot.

The house is large and homey. It's old and a bit quirky in its layout, but it's well-provisioned. The beds are comfortable and there's plenty of fans for the warmish nights. We particularly liked the many options for eating and gathering - front porch, screened in side porch, large dining area, picnic table in back. Our only struggle (a tiny one) was that there's only one shower. If we'd had more bath takers, it would have been less an issue.

In short, we'd return in a heartbeat.

Cove Dwellers

The Big house was the ideal location for my mother, sister and I to enjoy strolls on the beach or just relax on one of the two porches to enjoy a good book or take in the beautiful view of Long Island Sound.

We hosted a family gathering and everyone from children to young adults to great grandparents enjoyed their visit.

The cottage has large common areas that accommodate small intimate gatherings. The bedrooms roomy and comfortably sleep ten people.

Although the cottage is in a private secluded area, it is also close to quaint shops or major retail stores. There are also many great eating establishments nearby.

There is a small private beach to lie in the sun or take a refreshing swim. Several family members also brought fishing poles to cast a line off the stone pier.

The community was very welcoming and friendly. We were invited to a neighborhood cookout on the first day of our visit. As we walked through town, we were often greeted with a hello and a smile.

I would recommend the Big House because of its charm, the location is incredible and amenities are outstanding. If it had not been for the fact that there was another family arriving on Saturday, we would have extended our stay an additional week.

I would like to thank Joe for making the Big House a pleasurable retreat.
