About Deborah Schwartz

Our family has owned this house for a very long time, and we have had joyous years of using the house for summer fun, Christmas time parties, lounging on the porch, watching fireworks on the fourth of July, fishing off the pier, and great nights of cooking for large groups of friends and family. Some of us live in NYC, others in Washington, and others in Connecticut. This is our favorite vacation place.

Deborah Schwartz purchased this house in 1927

Why Deborah Schwartz chose Connecticut Shore

This is a magical house, with warm rich wood and stone details, on the beach, with lots of lovely rooms for rest and privacy, and spacious communal spaces for parties, family reunions, or work retreats.

What makes this house unique

Great location on the beach, perfect for large gatherings, but the house has so much space, and so many remote niches that it is also easy to find a quiet place to curl up and read a book. Private space and party space all wrapped into one incredibly beautiful house!

We all absolutely loved this fabulous house , even in February with a little snow on the ground, this place was spectacular. It was perfect for a 50th birthday celebration. The big dining room table accommodated all the guests. the grand piano and gas fireplace made The living room so inviting. The views of the ocean were spectacular from many of the rooms. This was a great house for entertaining as there are many different sitting areas throughout the house. The third floor has an added bonus with the huge open library with a comfy futon. We can only imagine how wonderful this house would be in the summer with the beach across the street and the huge front porch and large enclosed porch with a ping-pong table. The house was impeccable and The owner was very prompt in replying and was Extremely accommodating. We would definitely rent again!

An exquisite beach front property full of warmth, charm and conveniently located near New Have, Ct.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property that is more beautiful than the photos indicate. Each room is exquisite. The kitchen is large and a lot of fun to cook in. There is room for families to gather together or to go off for privacy, walk on the beach, read on the roof-top deck or screened in porch, & take excursions to New Haven. Debbie is wonderful to work with - she's patient & responsive - we couldn't have asked for more.

This house was amazing. A truly unique and old home with so much style and charm.

  • 5 of 5

The fireplace is amazing and sitting in that room after dark was so warm and cozy. I only wish one of us knew how to play piano. There were so many bedrooms to choose from! The views out to the beach were amazing and the beach being right there was a treat. We loved the artiwork and rugs and wood details throughout the house. We hope to stay here again!!!

Gorgeous, spacious rental

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house in October.. cool/rainy weekend but still unbeatable views. Woke up to the sunrise over the water, right from the bedroom window. Would be a perfect location for a week at the beach in the summer- or just a quiet escape for the weekend any time of year! Very clean, and well maintained. Great kitchen and large dining area. Comfortable beds and linens. No disappointments.

Clean, spacious and perfectly located across from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautifully preserved historic home right on the beach. My family picks a different house on the Milford Shore every year and we all agreed that this has been our absolute favorite so far. The house was clean and well stocked and we had very clear instructions for everything from the coffee machine to the television. There was one slight hiccup where the HVAC stopped working and the owners had someone there within a few hours to fix it. I would highly recommend his house to anyone and I look forward to renting it again next summer.

Thank you for everything!

We enjoyed our 2nd vacation at the Woodmont house and it was perfect to say the least. The house is so comfortable and well maintained you just automatically relax and enjoy your time. The new ping pong table was used constantly and the water boards were great.

Wonderful stay
