3 Bedroom Sunny Home Steps Away From Beach And Boating Access
About Leona Rianhard
My husband and I are local business owners, married thirty years, with two wonderful children, and one wonderful son-in-law. We fell in love with this rental property years ago due to its family friendly "beach" ways. We live in the next town over and enjoy all outdoor activities, such as boating, jet-skiing, kayaking, fishing, hunting, skiing, and gardening. We all love to cook and be with family and friends. We believe travel is a great teacher and jump at the chance to explore new opportunities when we are not working.
Leona Rianhard purchased this House in 2013

This property is ideally located steps to the beach and boat launch, with miles of connecting streets which are suitable for walking, running, or biking. Downtown Old Saybrook is a classic New England beach town just a bike ride away or a short ride in your car.
What makes this House unique
Ride a bike or take a walk along the many connecting streets or beaches at low tide. EASTERN SHORELINE, Conn. (WTNH) — From its quaint downtown areas to its picturesque beaches and plethora of attractions, the eastern part of Connecticut’s shoreline is being compared to the eastern end of Long Island.

Great week at the beach!
This house was perfect for a relaxing week at the beach. The proximity to the beach was perfect for small kids (about 4 houses away) and the house was clean and comfortable. We will definitely be booking again.
My grand daughters and I loved the house
The short walk to the beach made our stay very pleasant. An air pump for the bikes and floats in the shed would have been helpful, the bike tires were flat or deflated. But we didn’t use the bikes anyhow. The outside dwelling seems to need some maintainence.
Cottage on the beach
Quaint New England courage at the beach. We loved the location. 2 bedrooms are air conditioned. Grill worked great. We would rent again for sure.
My husband, I and our 4 adult children stayed here in July 2019. We had a wonderful time. At first, we were concerned because we came in the 7th, the Sunday after the 4th of July. There were a lot of people, golf carts heading to the beach etc. But by Monday everyone left. It was then very peaceful and pleasant. Every morning we headed to the beach with our coffee. Second cup? No problem, it was a short walk back and forth. The beach was however much smaller than I had thought but once the crowds left Sunday it was fine. I loved when the tides went out and the sandbars emerged. Even living on Long Island, I had never seen such large and long sand bars.
We enjoyed the yard, where my big kids could play yard games. The porch was lovely and a nice gathering place outside for meals or to watch the kids play. The rooms were comfortable, however the room with the twin beds has no a/c. A couple of nights it was warm up there. There were plenty of fans in closets to spread out around. The breeze from the sound kept the rest of the house comfortable.
We kayaked, clammed, crabbed. Didn't catch much but it was fun.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again. I would avoid holiday weekend/weeks if you are looking for a peaceful stay.
Four Generations of Fun
Our family had the most wonderful week staying in this lovely cottage. Owner Leona couldn’t have been more accommodating. We had 4 generations in the home. The close proximity to the beach was perfect for my 90 year old mom as well as my 16 month old grandson. The sandbars at low tide were an additional playground for all. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. We live in the Atlanta area now but enjoyed summers at the Connecticut shore as children so this was coming home for us. Thanks for a great time Leona. We will be back 🌞.
If there were 10 stars I would have given it 10!! We had a fabulous family weekend. The home was spotlessly clean and more than well equipped
with everything you need. It is cozy, bright and literally just steps from a great little family beach. Even better than the pics. The neighborhood is quiet and has super friendly people. Will definitely return to this great beach house! The owner was very prompt answering questions and very helpful. Thank you for sharing your awesome home with us!!!
