Connecticut shore cottage with ocean views, sun porch, and knotty-pine great room.
50-yard walk to either a private or town beach. You can set up your spot and still walk back to the cottage for snacks!
Historic seashore style has vintage details and modern updates. New stove, toilet, shower stall. Appliances. It's a quaint and simple New England cottage without extensive renovations.
Three parking spaces, safe and close to the front door (four if you have small cars). No street parking anywhere.
A slice of New England coastal charm. You will not find a cottage of this size, this close to the beaches, at this price. It's a real getaway--feels like stepping back in time to a slower, quieter life but with perks (like a microwave and air conditioners).
It's a cozy atmosphere on a mellow beach street.
We are working to keep it as a family place, so you have the sense of staying at someone's cottage rather than renting commercial real-estate. We have family furniture and belongings in the cottage.
Three bedrooms, each with a double/full bed (guests bring linens). The largest bedroom has two dressers. The two smaller bedrooms have one dresser. Closets in all of them.
Small bathroom with newer toilet, sink/vanity, and shower stall.
It's a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street. Little traffic, little rushing around. Lots of people sitting under umbrellas or wading in the water at low tide.
$20 at town beach lot if you need more than our three parking spaces.
A shared right-of-way for walking to the backyard patio and outdoor shower. Full outside clothesline for hanging wet towels and bathing suits. Small patio area with an ocean view. Small partially fenced yard.
Perfect location for the full shoreline experience--halfway point between New Haven and New London. So relax on the cottage sun porch or hang out at the soothing beach for the day. Or drive west to New Haven for theater and museums or drive east to New London for arts and entertainment. Also close to Mystic Seaport and Mohegan Sun Casino.
During their visit, guests will have access to all rooms in the cottage. Two couches on the sun porch. Two couches in the living room. The rooms are fully furnished with a full kitchen. WiFi and small flatscreen television--tv has ports for HDMI cords to devices or smart sticks. No cable!
(The attic and three porch storage closets are restricted + off-limits.)
My grandmother budgeted and planned to buy this cottage. I grew up spending much of my summer hanging out on Seaside Avenue--a mellow and quiet beach neighborhood. Slow pace and lots of sun.
I am a professor of history and enjoy gardening, reading, and hiking.
Aimee purchased this cottage in 1979
You have the best of both worlds with this cottage--vintage New England charm with knotty pine & original doors plus modern updates to the kitchen and bathroom. Cozy cottage with the amenities. Ocean view and 50-yard walk to the beaches. No need to pack the car! You will feel like you are in a different time, staying at someone's family cottage.
Walk to the beaches. Two minutes!
Leave your blankets and chairs at your spot (taking valuables with you) and return to the cottage for lunch or any forgotten items! This laid-back locale has you covered!
It's low-tech. Newer storm windows and appliances, WiFi, a small tv with HDMI ports. But the overall vibe is vintage simplicity and beach mellow.
This is a quaint, comfortable cottage with a perfect location. It was immaculate and it had everything needed for an enjoyable stay at the beach. Coffee in the morning on the porch was just the perfect way to start the day. The beach was steps away and you had the choice of quiet Coral Sands or the public beach.
The neighborhood was great for long walks in the morning or in the evening. There is a lot to do from the outlets to Mystic Seaport, a drive away.
I definitely would stay again in this cozy cottage. The owner was great! 😀
It was a very well stocked and managed property. It truly was like being in a home instead of the sterile feeling of a hotel. The location was perfect and the dates of renting ( Monday through monday) couldn't have been more convienent. Everything was in great condition and very comfortable as well. We look forward to making this an annual tradition.
Loved the cottage it was clean and well maintained. The private beach was great, clean and not crowded and only a short walk. So close to both Clinton outlet stores as well as Westbrook outlets, plenty of great restaurants and grocery stores. I can't say enough nice things about the owner, she was just great and I would definitely recommend this cottage.
Fantastic cottage and location. Close to a private and public beach.Owners a good people. the place had that old beach feeling and reminded me of the beach when I was a kid. Basketball hoop for the sports lover about 200 feet away. Beautiful sunrise and sunset walks. Ocean fishing in some of Connecticut's top fishing spots and a great area for family and fine dinning. This was by and far one of the best places I have been in years and a steal for the price. I can not wait to get back and hope to do so soon. Was thinking about sending my parents who love the Vineyard..
Three parking spaces in front of the cottage (four with small cars). NO STREET PARKING anywhere !*!*
Perfect location in the middle of two beaches. 50 yards in either direction you can set up a spot at a mellow beach.
This vintage family cottage offers quaint, simple charms--it's not a renovated high-cost rental.
The cottage is also a mile from route 95, an close to New Haven and New London for more shoreline activities. Clinton, Essex, and Old Saybrook have a lot to offer too.
