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
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

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!

Adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable cottage and just perfect for our couples getaway. Great little neighborhood with a private beach down the street or several larger beaches a short drive away.

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Seafoan Palace is a charming, well maintained cottage in a super quiet beach community. The cottage is roomy and open and you can walk to the beach or just around the area and enjoy the neighborhood. I would recommend this to anyone except maybe someone wheelchair bound since there are a few steps up to the door, otherwise I think anyone would love it. We brought in takeout for dinners or picked up easy stuff from "Big Y" grocery - great options. For resturants I can recommend J.A.M.S.S. which is OUTSTANDING - we ate there 5 mornings in a row. They do great lunches too, but are closed for dinner. They are at the entrance to Chalker Beach and are very creative and fresh. Overall Old Saybrook is beautiful and friendly; drive around and explore, go for a walk on the point and enjoy some of the other activities in the area, or just relax at the beach like a local.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your week at the Seafoam Palace. We are delighted that J.A.M.S.S. has relocated right up the street, they are a welcomed addition to the neighborhood. We think that Old Saybrook has something for everyone and we are pleased that you found our little corner of the world! We'd love to have you come back.

last minute get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go to CT. for a few days and the Seafoam Palace was available. As soon as I walked into the cottage I felt so relaxed. It was just what we both needed after a few rough months. Our grandchildren visited for the weekend and they loved the beach. We had 2 good beach days and loved the small private beach. The cottage had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. The deck is perfect for dining outside. The area is so quiet and laid back, just the type of beach vacation I enjoy. We ate out at Wayback Burger and the Cookoo's Nest and enjoyed them both. The owners Ron and Betsey are great. They greeted us when we arrived and when we had a problem they were quick to fix it. I hope we can visit Chalker Beach and the Seafoam Palace again soon. Thank you Ron and Betsey for sharing your cottage with us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen! I'm glad you experienced Chalker Beach as I do---- the weight of the world gets left on Route 1 as I turn onto Chalker Beach Road. We certainly hope the Seafoam Palace will be part of your future travel plans and look forward to your return. Betsey and Ron

The Seafoam...It was all great!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I visited the Seafoam for a mother/daughter getaway and had a great time! From the beginning the owners were great, they answered my emails promptly every time. The Seafoam is well kept, very clean, and feels like home. You have everything you need for a comfortable stay, and Ron and Betsey, the owners, make themselves available for anything you might need. We felt more like we were at a family beach house than renting it. Especially after reading their guest book comments with all the familie's storie's about their stays, many of them that visit year after year, we felt right at home. It's a great location on the Ct. Shore, Chalker Beach is a lovely quiet area, a real gem, and the Seafoam is across the street from a salt marsh and a real 3 minute walk to the beach! We did day trips to Mystic Aquarium/Seaport, enjoyed our Lobster Rolls, and enjoyed driving the many scenic areas in and around Old Saybrook. My first visit to the Ct. Shore and it won't be my last! Highly recommended to everyone! Very family friendly and great for young children! Thanks Ron and Betsey! We'll be back!

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
