Open your eyes in the morning to the view of the beach and your own boat sitting at your dock. You can walk down the street to the yacht club, enjoy breakfast and a copy of the newspaper (the yacht club also serves sandwiches and ice cream all day long). You will see children pass by with tennis rackets and life preservers and bathing suits ready to start the day of organized activities. The atmosphere is congenial and friendly. You might take a few more steps to Main Beach in this private beach community.

In the evening you might find yourself preparing for the 'Hello Summer' cocktail party or Family Night at the yacht Club followed by fireworks. You might be riding into Mystic for dinner whether it be Mystic pizza for the family or a more elegant fair for the adults.

About Scott Smith

I am an orthodontist and a single dad. I love my jobs! I have two boys. We enjoy hanging out together. We boat, fish, sail, jetski, play tennis and golf together. Summers are really special for us. I wish I had come to this property years ago. It is truly unique.

Scott Smith purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Scott Smith chose Groton

The best way I can describe Groton Long Point is that it is the closest thing to a giant summer camp for children and adults. There are a plethora of activities e.g. instuction for sailing, swimming, tennis, golf and all kinds of sports! There are cocktail parties, family night followed by fireworks, a Fourth of July parade and other organized social events through the yacht club thoughout the summer. It is a wonderful and fun place to be. This is a wonderful place for families.

This is newly refurbished but still retains a cozy feel. It is full air conditioned with flat pannel TVs in all the rooms. It has a wonderful expansive deck that sits 5 feet from the water.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has just been recently remodeled and refurbished. It abuts Venetian Harbor with a large dock literally 3 steps off the back deck! Not only are there great views of the harbor but also the ocean and a Seaflower Light! You can watch the sunsets right from the large deck, living room, upstairs bedroom and deck as well as the master bedroom.

THE BEST!

  • 5 out of 5
We found this warm and most charming place on this website and fell in love with it the very first time we walked in 4 yrs ago. It exceeded any of our expectations. Our initial stay was 2 weeks followed by one month the following year and the past 2 years, we have been coming here for 6 weeks and loving every minute of it! It has great views, peaceful and beautiful setting and the best thing is, the owner is the nicest man in the world. We are very happy, don’t want to leave and plan to return next year.

I enjoyed a sojourn at this lovely cottage on the Venetian Harbor and have nothing but wonderful things to say not only about the property itself, but also regarding the property owner and the amenities offered.
Groton Long Point is a beautiful seaside community and if you're looking for a summer vacation destination for your family; this cottage should top your list!
