Old Lyme Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom Home, Short Walk to Great Beach

Spend your summer vacation at beautiful White Sands Beach--the hidden treasure of the Connecticut shoreline!

This 3 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is only a 2 minute walk from the beach on a quiet, family-friendly street. When you're not enjoying the beautiful beach, you can catch a nap on the sun porch, have a barbecue in the backyard, and nothing says summer at the beach like an outdoor shower.

The home was just purchased by new owners after being in one family for 4 decades and was totally renovated from top to bottom. You'll be amazed by the brand new kitchen, remodeled bathroom, new wood floors, fresh paint, updated fixtures, spacious deck, rebuilt outdoor shower and other updates awaiting your arrival.

With more than 1,000 square feet, there's plenty of room for your family, and as a year-round home this cottage is fully heated and insulated just in case you encounter a chilly morning during your stay. There is also central air conditioning to make sure you'll be comfortable on a hot August night.

Two bedrooms have queen beds, the third has two twin beds. The kitchen features full size appliances, including a dishwasher, side-by-side fridge with water and ice through the door, and an electric range with microwave over. There's also a dining table that seats 6 comfortably. The living area has brand new furniture and is plenty big for your whole family. There's cable television in the living room and secure wifi access is provided as well.

The beach association includes a security guard, basketball court, playground, lifeguards, tennis, movies, and more. The location of White Sands Beach provides beautiful, unobstructed views of Long Island Sound, and the beach connects all the way to Griswold Point and the mouth of the Connecticut River--which means your walk in the sand could easily last two hours or more.

Within a 30 minutes drive are: Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun Casinos, outlet shopping, many fine art galleries, the Niantic Childrens' Museum, the unique Essex Steam Train, the Florence Griswold Museum, movie theatres and antique shops. Both casual & fine dining options are close by as well.

The cottage is available for weekly rentals only (Saturday to Saturday) in the peak summer season. Some off-season shorter stays may be arranged, based on availability.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

My sister in law and I and our three children stayed in this lovely cottage for 4 days -- though we wish we could've stayed longer. It was perfect for a family of five. The home was clean and well maintained; the beds were super comfy. Only a few steps down the quiet street we found a beautiful, peaceful beach. With so much to do, this was still the kids favorite place to be! And even better was the home's outside shower that the kids stepped right into when we got back.

In a few short days we were able to fit so much in during our stay. It is a central location to so many places. We visited the Essex Steam Train (15 minutes away), the Gillette Castle (25 minutes), everything in Mystic! (30 minutes), and Newport (about an hour and 15).

The owners were very accommodating.

I will definitely return to this home!

The description and pictures do not do this cottage justice! All brand new and completed renovated - state of the art appliances - very comfortable beds! Loved the outdoor shower - a few minutes walk to the gorgeous beach was so handy if you forgot something! Loved the front screened in porch and dining area on the back deck! Owner provided beach chairs so you don't have to bring your own. Kitchen was fully stocked and very clean! We would definitely visit again! Thanks so much for providing a great place for our visit!
