Overview

Old Saybrook Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

The Seafoam is a newly renovated year-round cottage in the Chalker Beach community in Old Saybrook, CT. Everything - inside and out - is brand new, and the beach is only a 3 minute walk away!! The kitchen is equipped with a range, toaster, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker with seating for four - although there are several extra chairs for the friends you'll make while you're here! The bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, and closet. (Bring sheets and towels.) The living room has a queen sleeper sofa, cable TV, and broadband internet connection for the rare inclement weather (you supply the computer). The updated full bath has a stand-up shower, but the enclosed outside shower is the guest favorite! The large deck off the kitchen has seating for four, and leads to a back yard with a gas grill. Watch the sunrise over the marsh from your bedroom window, and the sun set from the back deck.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

Very relaxing and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage had all the comforts of home. Very short walk to the beach. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. Lots of resturants nearby to choose from. We would most likely consider staying there again when vacationing in Old Saybrook.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Seafoam cottage! My boyfriend and I went for a romantic getaway weekend and we loved how close we were to the beach. Also all the stores you need are very close by. I'd definitely recommend trying the creme brûlée French toast at J.A.M.S. and also trying not Luigis restaurant for dinner they have huge portions and it's delicious Italian food. I can't wait to stay again next summer!

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little place. Owners are very attentive and take excellent care of their property. The cottage is bright and cheery. It is conveniently located near beach, shopping, and highway. Cost is very reasonable and staying here is better than being cramped in a hotel room. We recommend this highly.

Cozy with a great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is adorable and the location is wonderful. Very close to the beach! We did however have an ant problem, and if I can suggest having more counter space in the bathroom. The bedroom mirror was very high, but they did supply us with a makeup mirror we could move to a lower location. Thank you! Lovely experience overall, I'll never want to stay at a hotel again. We really enjoyed the ability to cook for our selves and have a quiet night at the house.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the home away experience. I wish you had let us know that you had ants! It can be an issue in the spring when the cottage is first opened but we didn't have any next door, so didn't think seafoam did either. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 4 days with my wife and 2 small children and absolutely loved it. Property was super clean and in a quiet community. The only complaint was the mattress was too hard.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry the mattress was too hard for you. It's such a personal thing---as we all learned from Goldie Locks and the 3 Bears! Be well and hope you'll come back again.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for the week of July 4th and we had a wonderful week! The property was perfect for our family of three and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The beach is a very short walk away and was quiet during the week. We highly recommend eating breakfast at J.A.M.M.S. at the top of main road leading to Chalker Beach. Highly recommend!

The Seafoam Palace is the perfect location for a summer getaway, whether you're looking for romance or family fun! The private beach is a very short walk away, and there are plenty of activities for the kids at the Chalker Beach clubhouse. Old Saybrook's quaint Main Street has shops for browsing and restaurants for dining. A quick trip in either direction on I-95 brings you to even more options: New London where you can pick up the ferry for a day trip to Block Island or Long Island; either of two resort casinos - the Mohegan Sun and MGM-Foxwoods; historic Mystic, CT for shopping in Mystic Village, touring Mystic Seaport, or visiting the penguins (et al) at the award-winning Aquarium; premium outlet shopping in Westbrook and Clinton, CT; the classic Essex Steam Train and Riverboat that takes you on a scenic train ride and then a cruise on the Connecticut River. Also close by are plenty of on-the-water dining and entertainment option, vineyards, art galleries, and antique shops.

Other Activities: Canoe, Kayak, Bike Rentals available just up the road
