What to do on Giants Neck Beach. In our 1950's original beach house you can sit on the enclosed porch and look at the view of the Long Island Sound, it is safe for children. There are tennis courts & a playground for young children. You can fish right off the beach. It's a perfect area to kayak or canoe in the calm waters of the sound & creek
I'm Janet originally from FL where I met my husband 37 years ago. He convinced me to move to CT where I now call home. We started renting for my 94 year old
mother-in-law about 10 years ago when it became too much for her. The cottage has been in my husband Kevin's family since the 60's, he grew up spending summers at the cottage. We love the area and think it's one of the nicest areas in CT for boating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. We hope you enjoy your stay.
Janet Leary purchased this house in 1960
