About Scott Smith

I am an orthodontist and a single dad. I love my jobs! I have two boys. We enjoy hanging out together. We boat, fish, sail, jetski, play tennis and golf together. Summers are really special for us. I wish I had come to this property years ago. It is truly unique.

Scott Smith purchased this Cottage in 2008

Why Scott Smith chose Groton Long Point

The best way I can describe Groton Long Point is that it is the closest thing to a giant summer camp for children and adults. There are a plethora of activities e.g. instuction for sailing, swimming, tennis, golf and all kinds of sports! There are cocktail parties, family night followed by fireworks, a Fourth of July parade and other organized social events through the yacht club thoughout the summer. It is a wonderful and fun place to be. This is a wonderful place for families. This is newly refurbished but still retains a cozy feel. It is full air conditioned with flat pannel TVs in all the rooms. It has a wonderful expansive deck that sits 5 feet from the water.

What makes this Cottage unique

The cottage has just been recently remodeled and refurbished. It abuts Venetian Harbor with a large dock literally 3 steps off the back deck! Not only are there great views of the harbor but also the ocean and a Seaflower Light! You can watch the sunsets right from the large deck, living room, upstairs bedroom and deck as well as the master bedroom.

                                                            Relaxing Getaway with Friends! Beautiful home right on the water!

                                                            Nicki C.

                                                            We just returned from a wonderful week at this cottage feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and so pleased with our trip! We were looking for a beautiful home on the water for 7 of us women to celebrate our friend getting married. Considering we're all so busy, we just wanted a comfortable space to relax in, cook and kayak with great restaurants and attractions nearby. This home way exceeded our expectations! It was gorgeous and very comfortably sleeps 7 (3 full bathrooms was also a super plus!). For all the fun activities close by in Mystic, we actually chose to stay home most of the time - sunbathing on the deck, grilling and dining on the deck, walking on the beach and kayaking. The fact that we could easily launch kayaks from our dock was wonderful as was the 3 minute walk to the beach! We took daily kayak trips to nearby beaches and other areas, even did morning yoga on the pier. The kitchen is fully stocked, the house had everything we needed. Scott, the owner, was very accommodating, super friendly and ready to help in case we needed anything. After the experience we had this week, I definitely plan to go back and next time with family. I highly recommend this spot for families, romantic getaways or relaxing weeks to catch up with good friends. Can't wait to go back!

                                                            p.s. An Uber ride to downtown Mystic is just $15. I highly recommend taking one night to go to The Oyster Club!

                                                            We love it!

                                                            Nicole C.

                                                            This was our 2nd time staying at this adorable cottage in the family friendly beach community of Groton Long Point. We love the experience of staying in a quintessential New England, cedar shingled cottage.

                                                            There is plenty of space for our family, with 3 updated full bathrooms and even the essential outdoor shower. The kitchen is equipped with all basic appliances and the access to laundry makes the stay even more convenient. There are lots of windows that allow a perfect cross breeze on a warmer day, and the deck is perfect for bbqing or just lounging.

                                                            The location is fantastic! The deck overlooks the lagoon where we spent many relaxing hours watching the boats drift by and the sunsets over Bluff Point. The beach is within a very short walking distance, and the water is safe for children to swim. The Wednesday night regattas can be enjoyed from the shore on Main Beach, or the dock on South Beach. You can easily bike into Noank for breakfast or for a lobster roll at one of 3 different locally sourced seafood places. A little further, and you can reach downtown Mystic by bike as well!

                                                            Scott is a great host: easy to contact, accommodating, and super friendly and we look forward to our next stay!

                                                            THE BEST!

                                                            We found this warm and most charming place on this website and fell in love with it the very first time we walked in 4 yrs ago. It exceeded any of our expectations. Our initial stay was 2 weeks followed by one month the following year and the past 2 years, we have been coming here for 6 weeks and loving every minute of it! It has great views, peaceful and beautiful setting and the best thing is, the owner is the nicest man in the world. We are very happy, don’t want to leave and plan to return next year.

                                                            You will not be disappointed!

                                                            I enjoyed a sojourn at this lovely cottage on the Venetian Harbor and have nothing but wonderful things to say not only about the property itself, but also regarding the property owner and the amenities offered.

                                                            Groton Long Point is a beautiful seaside community and if you're looking for a summer vacation destination for your family; this cottage should top your list!
