While minimum 7 day stays are preferred, shorter stays are considered during the spring and fall depending upon availability.

This classic beach cottage is light and bright and is just a 3 minute walk to the private beach. It has 4 rooms, 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, and a front porch. The open living area has plenty of room for curling up with a good book, watching your favorite TV show, or enjoying a meal. The kitchen is recently renovated with new appliances including range, microwave, large refrigerator with automatic ice maker, and dishwasher. The kitchen has a breakfast bar open to the living area. The kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes, utensils, pots & pans, and other gadgets that you'll need for meal preparation. The large screened front porch, which faces east, has both an eating area and a living area - the perfect place to enjoy the morning sun with a cup of coffee. After the beach, it is a cool & comfortable place for a nap or some quiet reading. The large rear deck and patio area faces west. It provides a wonderful setting for your evening meal and/or barbecue. A retractable awning offers shade when needed. The master bedroom has a full size double bed and tall dresser. An armoire for hanging clothes is provided in the living area. The second bedroom is furnished with a single over double bunk bed set up with two large dresser drawers and a separate closet area. A comfortable queen size air mattress for use in the living area or on the screened porch is on hand for unexpected guests. The outside shower area is spacious and private. It has hot and cold water and a dressing area.

Transportation to Major Cities: The cottage offers a relaxing seaside retreat, however, both New York City and Boston are approximately two hours away by car or train.

Laundry, Etc.: The cottage has a washer but no dryer. A clothes line is provided. Coin operated laundromats for larger jobs are located less than 10 minutes away in both Westbrook and Old Saybrook.

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.

Things To Do: There is a wide variety of activities available in the area including shopping, excellent gourmet, casual, and 'clam shack' restaurants, movies, theater, antiquing, and historic sites. A large notebook of area offerings is available for your use at the cottage.

About David Osella and John Scully

We live and work in the greater Hartford, CT area.

David Osella and John Scully purchased this cottage in 2010

Why David Osella and John Scully chose Westbrook

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

The Town of Westbrook, CT is located on Long Island Sound between Old Saybrook and Clinton. It is easily accessible from I-95. Area attractions include Old Saybrook's Main Street with local shops and excellent restaurants, Outlet Malls in Westbrook and Clinton, and Westbrook's Waters Edge Resort (the outside bar area is great in the evening). The Cottage offers easy access to three private beach areas for use by the Chapman Beach Community only. Main beach area is accessed at the corner of First Avenue and Chapman Avenue (go out the front door of the Cottage, turn right on First Avenue, walk up the little knoll and you are there!). There is also a small beach area where Chapman Beach Road meets Long Island Sound and a very sandy beach area off of Marvin Drive in the eastern portion of the neighborhood. Chapman Beach is a small and friendly community of mostly vintage, seasonal cottages. There is very little traffic making the neighborhood ideal for bike rides and evening strolls
