EXCELLENT location, immaculate rental. Have already booked my next stay!

  • 5 of 5

My multi-generational family was looking for a relaxing yet fun vacation, and the Pail and Shovel Inn was the perfect getaway. Steps from the beach, plenty of yard space, grill, parking... everything was convenient and immaculate. Would highly recommend to other families, and I've already booked our next beach vacation.

Clean, spacious and convenient. Pail and Shovel Inn met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations for a pleasant and relaxing vacation. Literally steps from a big sandy beach,spacious first floor living, A/C, grill and table in back yard, porch and seating in front yard, steps to carousel, take-out food, ice cream and beach shops. Friendly and accommodating owners made planning our vacation very pleasant and easy - just what a vacation should be!

My family and I went last year, we've been vacationing at the CT shores for years, this was by far one of the best rentals we have had! My daughter came unexpectedly as well and they were very accommodating- will definitely be back!!

Let's talk - I can be reasonable and flexible. These are general terms that are set by the site and this is how a great percentage of rentals are handled, by the week or multi weeks with changes on Saturdays, however, holiday weekends, special rates and last minute cancellations may apply. Should you wish to bring a pet, we will need to discuss this personally for me to determine if we are a good match for you.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
