Captain's Cottage, along with her neighbors, was developed in the 1890's by the Crescent Beach Land Company as a summer get away. Since then the cottage has been extensively remodeled and winterized as a year round residence. It now features a large, eat-in gourmet kitchen, a Bose home theater, a dining/gaming room, and a computer area. A major remodel completed in 2007 added an oversized two car garage, a master suite with jetted shower, an upper deck with discrete sunning area and hot tub, a pool/trophy room with an eight foot Connelly pool table, and a basement with home gym, including a universal machine, a treadmill, and free weights.
Captain's Cottage is ideally located just 66 steps--I counted'em--away from the finest beach for miles around. Crescent Beach is meticulously manicured every morning at the crack of dawn. It has a raft, a lifeguard, and 'The Stand', serving breakfast and lunch daily. There's a place to launch small boats. And it's all an easy walk into town having all the ammenities of a classic New England beach town: clam shacks, ice cream and coffee shops, antiques, gift shops, movie theater, pizza parlors and watering holes.
Captain's Cottage is uniquely suited for entertaining. There is a gas grill on the tropical themed front porch that Jimmy Buffet would be proud of, and the dining room opens to the front porch thru an opening in the wet bar for al fresco dining. There is service for parties of up to twenty.
Captain's Cottage comes fully equipped with small boats, bicycles, and all the gear your family will need to get the most from your stay at the beach!

'Captain' is a well earned moniker for Capt Rick, as he's known by his friends. A native of Crescent Beach, he is a veteran Air Force captain, a fighter pilot having flown the F-4 Phantom and the A-10 Thunderbolt.
As sea captain, he has earned a Coast Guard 100 ton off-shore Masters license, having plied waters from New England to Bermuda, Bahamas and the Caribbean, momentos of which can be seen throughout Captain's Cottage.
As captain of the skyways, he is also an international airline captain flying B-777 for American Airlines to Europe, Asia, and South America.
So, a captain threefold, the name is hard to escape! You're invited to share the captain's east coast home, as he nows hails from Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Owner purchased this house in 1994
I bought Captain's Cottage 1996 as a personal residence to raise my family, and it has been awesome! Now that my family is grown and gone, I'm happy to extend their experience to others.
Guests of Captain's Cottage experience life in the heart of Crescent Beach, a very family friendly beach community, in deluxe accommodations with amenities not found in most beach rentals.
AWESOME STAY!!! The house exceeded everyones expectations. The location was great, only steps away from the beach. Thanks Captain Rick!!!
We all really enjoyed Captain's Cottage! Great house with lots to do inside and outside. Plenty of space. Nice clean house. The beach is so close. Love the area in general!
This I is the second year we rented ricks house for a reunion with old friends. The location is perfect for relaxing. There are also plenty of things to do including bike riding,kyaking,playing pool and chilling in the hot tub. The beach is a few steps away and with perfect weather we couldn't have asked for more!
10 of us stayed for the weekend and it was a blast! The house is literally right off the beach. We spent the day at the beach and the evening on the porch & upstairs deck. We had more space than we knew what to do with and plenty to keep us occupied. The pictures/description don't do the house justice, I would recommend this place to anyone.
This was our third stay at this great place and it just gets better and better. There were some additional kitchen items this year, not that we were really lacking in anything, which made things easier and more enjoyable. 10 thumbs up!!!
My family and I had a truly wonderful vacation in Crescent Beach staying at the home of Captain Rick aptly called "Captain's Cottage". This fantastic residence has every amenity one could desire and is seconds from one of the nicest. well kept beaches in CT with the great town of Niantic within walking distance. If you are looking for a relaxing and fun holiday on the water, Captain's Cottage cannot be beat.
