New London House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)


Imagine your family enjoying beautiful Guthrie beach (only a two minute walk away) and seeing views of two nearby lighthouses (with binoculars, you'll be able to see two more lighthouses)

You can book off-season for weekends, weeks, or longer. Let us know your needs if you need temporary housing during this time.

'We've been renting houses at the Connecticut shore for six years, and your house is by far the nicest! There was plenty of room for the family and all of our friends and extended family who came to visit. Even with three messy teenagers, there's so much room the house always felt clean and comfortable. This has been such a relaxing vacation with all (and more) of the comforts of home.'

The London Family, Columbia, MD 8/8/09


We are located just four houses in from the water- a two minute walk, with a lovely water view from the front yard. On the first floor, there is a large eat-in kitchen, a dining room that seats eight with extra chairs available, living room, sun-room with table and chairs, and a full bathroom. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (all with queen beds) and a full bathroom. Additionally, upstairs, there is a den with a flat screen TV that converts to a sleeping area for three (futon and single sofa bed). The den has sliding doors that open to an outside deck with nice water views.

Also, an upstairs sitting area can sleep one adult or two children on a futon. In the back yard the house has a large deck with table, lots of seating, and charcoal grill. We have converted the one-car garage to a play area with a ping-pong table, games, toys, and books.

The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, and paper supplies. The spacious kitchen has a dishwasher, refrigerator and gas range/oven. It is equipped with pots, pans, utensils and dishes. There is a microwave, blender, toaster and coffee maker. You can eat at the kitchen table, serve a larger group in the dining room, or have a family picnic out on the back porch/deck. Smoking outdoors only, please.

Our child-friendly home has two pack and plays, a high chair, stroller, beach toys, Ikea plastic ware, and lots of kids' toys and DVDs.

During the summer season, the house is available by the week only. Your stay begins Sunday at 4 pm and extends until the following Sunday at 11 am. During the rest of the year, it is available for rent by the weekend, week, month, or longer. We do not charge a separate cleaning fee; the home is cleaned between guests and the fee is included in our rates.

** Families of Students or Servicemen **


We are just ten minutes away from the U.S Coast Guard Academy.


We are about 20 minutes from the US Navy Submarine Base Groton/ New London.



Private Guthrie Beach is sandy and pleasant, only steps away and right on Long Island Sound. The beach is yours to enjoy while renting the house. We keep two chairs and un umbrella for you at the beach; these will be set up for you upon arrival. (We have more chairs at the house, and a wagon, for you to bring along). It has restrooms and an outdoor shower, and is attended in season for your comfort and security but there is no lifeguard on duty. There is a roped swimming area and sunning/diving platform. Bring your picnic lunch and enjoy the picnic tables. We provide beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. The house has plenty of beach towels and beach toys for the family!


Bring along your bike and take a ride or walk along the seawall about a half mile to Ocean Beach Park with its boardwalk, kids waterpark, rides, food and activities.

Drive five minutes and hop on a Ferry to Block Island or Orient Point, Long Island. Mystic is only a ten to fifteen minute drive away and features Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium. A 20-30 minute car ride gets you to the three largest casinos in the world, Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Foxwoods, with entertainment and dining options too numerous to count. The family will LOVE the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan! And all of this is only two hours from Boston and 2 1/2 hours from New York City.

Summer at the Connecticut shore is beautiful! One of the high points of summer in New London is Sailfest - a celebration of ships and the sea in early July, with its huge fireworks display over a harbor absolutely alive with colorful boats and visitors. Walk a few blocks, pick out your viewing spot and let others deal with the traffic.

New London is an arts lovers haven with galleries, artist colonies, live music, theatre and performing arts.


Harkness Memorial State Park, Rocky Neck State Park, Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium. Ferries to Block Island and Long Island are ten minutes away. Connecticut College, Mitchell College, and Coast Guard Academy are close by. To get to New York or Boston, interstate 95 is nearby or there is a nearby train station, an Acela Express stop. A Greyhound Bus station is also in New London. Local buses (SEAT) can take you to malls and downtown.

Randy Hogg purchased this house in 2006

This home has a lovely water view from the front yard, as well as views from the upstairs deck and the sitting area. Guthrie Beach is a wonderful place for families and is so close!

What makes this house unique

Parking for three cars in driveway, located close to New London's transportation hub (train, bus, taxi, ferry, I-95), beautiful neighborhood for walking or biking, near Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the privilege of staying in your home!

We had a great stay. We were here for a family Bar Mitzvah and the location was perfect for all of the weekend activities. The comfort of a home was so much better than hotel living! You have a great place. We may be in touch in the future.

Again thank you for your hospitality.

great summer beach house

  • 5 of 5

this is the second or third year we've rented the house for a week at the beach - randy and carolyn are great hosts and very responsive to our questions and needs - the house fit our family of 7 adults and 2 toddlers - the recent addition of an AC in the kitchen kept the downstairs cool. it had everything we need - the walk to guthrie beach is 150 steps and they set up you chairs and plant your umbrella for you! We enjoyed the fire bit on sat night with marshmallows and smores !

hope to return again next year

Feels more like a home then a rental

  • 5 of 5

You will not regret staying here. A wonderful home with caring owners. It was a family get together that was only enhanced by a great home, a wonderful beach just steps away, super neighborhood and a great town with plenty to do for all age groups. Happy we were able to stay here and we are all looking forward to our return.

The pictures dont do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Looking from the outside it doesn't look like a lot of space but there is so much room. Went here with a few buddies and we did not want to leave. A hop and a skip away from the beach, 20 minutes away from Mohegan, a few minutes from night life and restaurants. A great little get away from the daily grind. Planning on another excursion here later this summer.

Wonderful, just like being at home.

The weather wasn't great, but it didn't matter. When we weren't visiting with family in Albany, Newtown, and Mystic, we were gathered around the kitchen table eating and talking. Best Christmas in many years!

Great house!

We can not say enough about the amazing experience we had renting the house for our daughters wedding! The house was well maintained with a beautiful ocean view. The house was very spacious with plenty of room for everyone and so close to Ocean Beach. Randy and Carolyn are easy accessible and so friendly! Thank you so much!

We will rent this house again!
