Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our week at the cottage. Niantic is a very nice little town and the cottage is in a great location. My son and I particularly liked being able to run in the state park each day.

the best vacation destination with kids

  • 5 of 5

House is very clean, comfortable, accessible and has a lot of amenities. Everything works well. New mattresses are very comfortable. even though, the house does not have an AC, fans are sufficient and provide a lot of fresh air. New large washer, outside shower, outside deck, gas grill, kids vagon, beach chairs and the umbrella are all adding up to the comfort and enjoyment.

The beach is simply the best for the kids and older adults. About 3 minutes of walking, crossing a very small local road, few flights of steps down. Water is shallow with a very gradual decline, clean, warm, waves free - absolutely ideal for the kids (please bring the water shoes as there are few rocks for the first 10 ft when entering the water - very soft sand after the rocks end - pleasant).

The owner is a very nicest guy, who spent the right amount of time with us describing the house and suggesting on the things to do. Kevin answered all of the questions and was very helpful. The state park has a lot of trails and many available picnic/bbq areas is within a short walking distance. One of the best vacations we've had and we have been to very many similar places. Thank you, Roche family, for sharing your house with us.

Wonderful place for a family with small kids

  • 5 of 5

If you’re a family with small kids, this is the perfect place for you!

The house is well-furnished, well-stocked, and well-maintained. It is not large, but had sufficient space for 3 adults and 3 kids to spread out. The backyard is large, there is a swing in the front, which my boys loved! The deck has 2 tables which we used for kids and adults menu. The owner provided a wagon, 5 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas.

There is a short walk from the house to 2 beaches and a playground. The community is very quiet and family-friendly. The beaches are small with almost no waves and flat profile – perfect for the little ones.

The village of Niantic is within 10-15 minutes drive with ice cream parlors, a movie theater, tiny children’s museum, Book Barn – a used bookstore/attraction we frequented in the evenings, and restaurants.

Other local attractions are within 40 minutes ride are Mystic, New London (don’t miss lighthouse cruise), submarine base in Groton, steam train in Essex, trolley museum in Hartford and lighthouse in Stonington.

Overall, we had wonderful time, and my kids voted the place the best summer destination so far!

Clean, well-maintained home in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week staying here. The house was clean and we had plenty of room (we had 4 adults and 2 kids with us). Nice yard and deck (the kids had a great time on the swing!) and an easy walk to many beaches! We can't wait to come back next year.

Great Week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful, clean cottage. Just about 3 minute walk to a clean private beach. We cooked in most nights and enjoyed the large kitchen immensely. I would definitely go back to this cottage for another week next year. I enjoy sitting around and reading, if you are looking for lots to do outside the cottage and the beach, this is probably not the place for you. Overall I would highly recommend this cottage for a quiet relaxing vacation.
