There is electric heat in all rooms to take the chill out if necessary. However, this is a traditional seasonal cottage with no insulation.
All rooms have ceiling fans and each bedroom has a window fan to keep you comfortable during your stay, as the cottage does not have air conditioning.

David Osella and John Scully purchased this cottage in 2010
In the 1960s, we both vacationed with our respective large families at the Connecticut Shore and have many fond memories. When we decided to look for a little getaway, we wanted a place that would be easy to get to and easy to maintain. We found this little cottage that is only 45 minutes from our home. We saw that it was in good condition but was in need of some tender loving care. We have made many improvements since purchasing it, transforming it into a comfy and cozy cottage.
Our cottage has a clean and comfortable interior, as well as wonderful outdoor space, with its screened porch, large deck, and patio. The neighborhood is walkable and the beach is very close.
We offer shorter stays during Spring and Fall subject to availability. Rental rate is $350 for your choice of 2 or 3 nights and $450 for 4 nights.
The rental fee includes professional cleaning between stays at no additional charge.
A signed Short Term Tenancy Agreement and payment of 50% of the Rental Fee is required in order to reserve your week(s). Payment of the balance of the Rental Fee along with a $500 Security Deposit is due 30 days prior to the start of the Rental Term. Payment may be made in the form of good check, money order or paypal.
