When we bought our cottage on the CT shore in Guilford, I was determined to provide our guests with all the comforts of home, with nice bed linens, towels, dishes, kitchenware and table cloths. Those things matter to me and I'm sure they do to you, too.
The living space is serene and cozy--but also a great place to entertain family and friends. There are kayaks and bikes that work!
I want you to enjoy the cottage as much as we do!

What a lovely spot! The cottage is steps away from a lovely private swimming beach, and is situated in a quiet, gentle neighborhood where walking or biking is a joy. But you don't even have to leave the deck of the cottage to enjoy a perfect vacation by the ocean. The cottage is bright, airy, and very thoughtfully equipped. Town is a ten minute car ride with a great market, and some special restaurants and shops. The property owners are friendly, responsive and considerate. I recommend this to anyone who loves beaches, nature, walking,biking, boating, reading, eating, and getting a good night's sleep. Deborah S.
It was a wonderful week. The house is very comfortable and quickly felt like home. We loved the comfy beds, clean and spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen, spectacular water views, grilling on the deck, setting the table with linens, grandma's silver and those beautiful pink peonies. It was a great place to relax and rest. Looking forward to our return.
The online information is accurate but when I walked in, I realized that the online photos don't do it justice. Modern, comfy seating with tasteful and cheerful color scheme. Nice kitchen with any utensil you might need to cook on the BBQ as well as visit the many nice restaurants in town. Great private beach at low and high tide. I enjoyed the swimming while my husband kayaked. Quiet mornings. Pretty bedrooms. Excellent hot/cold outdoor shower we preferred as come in back after the beach. Great views. Good customer service from Judy. Would recommend to a friend and return. Only tiny problem was we hated to leave and the cleaning couple arrived early and idled their car just outside the door we were bringing our luggage out through. Unpleasant and they just watched (maybe needed A/C in their car). Wish they would have driven around the block a few times because it felt like an abrupt ending to a lovely week. But that was minor in the whole scheme of things!:)
Judy and Richard Davies' lovely cottage is a perfect place to enjoy all that Guilford and the Connecticut shoreline have to offer. Unique to this cottage: I have never stayed at a place where I can settle in and within minutes everything that I need is at my fingertips. The kitchen, for example, is stocked with the same high-end equipment that I have at home so cooking for just the two of us or for a crowd is a breeze. The beds, similarly, are comfortable and getting a good night's sleep is easy. The cottage is spacious so it is easy to welcome visiting family. Every amenity (wifi, workspace, good books, cable TV for husbands who like to keep up with sports) is at hand. Indian Cove is a special area of Guilford. Long walks are easily at hand, there are beaches and birds, bikes and kayaks. One can't help but enjoy the osprey as they fly by clutching their fresh catch from the sea. A memorable time that won't soon be forgotten.
Lovely beach cottage in quiet community near private beach. Great view from front deck. House was clean and owners very accommodating.
This house is beautiful and a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday. Everything is of a very good quality and it was immaculate for our arrival. The decking and views from the decking are idyllic and after a day out and about it was perfect to sit out with a glass of wine and cook on the great bar-b-que. Judy is excellent to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. If we return to Connecticut I will derfinitely stay at this house again and will recommend it to all our friends. Fantastic holiday.
