About Eric

This beach house has been in our family for 4 generations. We have amazing childhood memories summering in GLP! Great fun , lots to do for kids or just relax on Main Beach from sunrise to sunset. Cottage connects to walkway leading to beach so travel back and forth to house is so easy.

Eric purchased this house in 1945

Why Eric chose Groton

We kept this house as simple and charming inside as it has been for the past 70 years. Vintage style house, original woodwork with wrap around porch offering great views! From the sunporch, the sounds of the crashing waves and smell of the ocean air makes for a relaxing night's sleep.

What makes this house unique

Great views of both Main Beach and Harborside Lagoon from your front porch.

A beautiful home and an incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I recently stayed at this house to celebrate my friend's upcoming wedding. First, the location of this house is incredible; it's right across the street from a quiet, sandy beach! We were just steps away from enjoying the sun and water!

The house itself was also great. A wrap-around front porch and a view of the sunrise made the morning conversations over coffee that much more enjoyable, and the patio area in the back assisted in ending our nights with grilling and laughter! The house appears to have been newly modernized with several kitchen amenities, well appointed furniture, and spacious bedrooms to accommodate a large group. The dining table was one of our favorite features, as it provided a gathering spot for daily board games with the whole group.

Should you choose to leave the peaceful abode for a night out on the town, downtown Mystic is only about a 12-minute drive, offering a plethora of restaurant and entertainment options.

Eric, the owner, was prompt with responses and provided all the details needed to kick off our weekend of fun! This rental is highly recommended!!

Perfect for casual vacation with kids

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews of this casual, homey, seaside abode in a quanit neighborhood are spot on and owners description is perfectly accurate. The house is casual but clean, just what I wanted for a family vacation with kids who track in sand even if you tell them not to. We brought teenagers and my 80 yr old mom who could walk the beach easily. Calm waters and a small crescent beach would make a great place to watch little ones without worry. (The largest bed is a full, so those over 6 feet may be cramped.) When we discovered gas grill was out of propane, the owner's brother replaced it right away! Loved town of Noank next door.

Second Stay Even Better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the Groton Long Point home and it was even better than the last. The location is just ideal. It is literally steps from the ocean. The beach is amazing--sandy, swimmable and long-- great for walking and finding seashells. The house has plenty of beds and everything is very clean. Since our last stay, a new sectional sofa was purchased which made hanging out together in the living room very comfortable. There is only one full bathroom, but that didn't compromise our enjoyment of this house at all---there is a great outdoor shower (with hot water and privacy doors) right out back. The outdoor patio also provides plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors. The house comes well equipped with everything you could need for a wonderful getaway. The owner is so easy to work with and very accommodating.

In addition, Groton Long Point is an adorable little community with a fantastic walking path that seems to run along the beaches and through the neighborhood. There is also a little restaurant down the street called the Casino. We didn't go there, but did walk by when they were serving brunch. It looked adorable. There are several good wineries nearby and on this occasion we visited the Jonathan Edwards winery where they were having a "start of summer" festival.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in an incredible spot steps from the beach. There was also ample outdoor space at the house on the front porch and a great patio. It comfortably sleeps 8 people, with 6 double beds and one queen/full. Clean, well-maintained. Overall a fantastic weekend.

Charming summer vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was fantastic!! The house is just as described and looked in the pictures. It was so clean which is very important to me. The rental process was easy and the owner was great to work with.

The house has so much charm! We loved starting our day by sitting out on the porch with our morning coffee and we were just steps from the beach!! Even though I had looked at the pictures on the site, I did not realize how close we would be! Going to the beach was so easy. We just walked out the door. If we forgot something we could walk the few steps back to the house. The grandchildren loved it!!

The area has so much to offer for everyone! We would love to come back here again. I think this could be our new favorite beach vacation! Thank you for a wonderful time!! Kathy and family
