CONNECTICUT SHORELINE BEACH COTTAGE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE SOUND

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Guilford - Guilford Beach House

2 bedrooms (queen bed, two twins) sleeps 4, 1 full bath plus outdoor shower

Indian Cove cottage on private road with two sandy beaches, boat dock and swimming raft. Kayak, swim, sail, fish, clam, bike, hike. Friendly community where families have come for generations. Great place to let kids roam on bikes (15 mph speed limit.)

Big-sky view of the Long Island Sound. Watch from the deck as the osprey soar overhead and dive for fish. Walk on the beach in the moonlight with the lighthouse from Faulkner's Island twinkling in the distance.

Large new deck with gas bbq, retractable awning and pots of flowers. Bamboo floors throughout, new tempurpedic mattresses, newly remodeled kitchen with dishwasher, bedrooms and bathroom. WI-Fi, cable TV, 2 bikes and kayaks (two sea kayaks and one small kayak that can be launched from the beach). There are fresh herbs and tomatoes (later in the season) available for your use. Large picnic table on the deck seats 8.

We have tried to equip the house with all the things we'd like to have in a vacation house: Le Creusset pots, sharp knives, plenty of good quality dishes, nice table linens, 2 Brown Jordon chaise lounges, new Tempurpedic mattresses, comfortable linens and pillows.

Even prettier than it appears online!

  • 5 out of 5
The online information is accurate but when I walked in, I realized that the online photos don't do it justice. Modern, comfy seating with tasteful and cheerful color scheme. Nice kitchen with any utensil you might need to cook on the BBQ as well as visit the many nice restaurants in town. Great private beach at low and high tide. I enjoyed the swimming while my husband kayaked. Quiet mornings. Pretty bedrooms. Excellent hot/cold outdoor shower we preferred as come in back after the beach. Great views. Good customer service from Judy. Would recommend to a friend and return. Only tiny problem was we hated to leave and the cleaning couple arrived early and idled their car just outside the door we were bringing our luggage out through. Unpleasant and they just watched (maybe needed A/C in their car). Wish they would have driven around the block a few times because it felt like an abrupt ending to a lovely week. But that was minor in the whole scheme of things!:)

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about my cleaners. They have only a few hours between guests--and they care a lot about making the house perfect, down to fresh-cut flowers on the table. But I'm sorry they were insensitive and rushed you. I've spoken to them.

My "home" in Indian Cove

My "home" in Indian Cove
  • 5 out of 5
Judy and Richard Davies' lovely cottage is a perfect place to enjoy all that Guilford and the Connecticut shoreline have to offer. Unique to this cottage: I have never stayed at a place where I can settle in and within minutes everything that I need is at my fingertips. The kitchen, for example, is stocked with the same high-end equipment that I have at home so cooking for just the two of us or for a crowd is a breeze. The beds, similarly, are comfortable and getting a good night's sleep is easy. The cottage is spacious so it is easy to welcome visiting family. Every amenity (wifi, workspace, good books, cable TV for husbands who like to keep up with sports) is at hand. Indian Cove is a special area of Guilford. Long walks are easily at hand, there are beaches and birds, bikes and kayaks. One can't help but enjoy the osprey as they fly by clutching their fresh catch from the sea. A memorable time that won't soon be forgotten.

Perfect Destination

  • 5 out of 5
This house is beautiful and a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday. Everything is of a very good quality and it was immaculate for our arrival. The decking and views from the decking are idyllic and after a day out and about it was perfect to sit out with a glass of wine and cook on the great bar-b-que. Judy is excellent to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. If we return to Connecticut I will derfinitely stay at this house again and will recommend it to all our friends. Fantastic holiday.

Cozy, comfortable cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We have rented this cottage for three years. It's such an idyllic getaway that we can't help ourselves! It is nicely decorated, comfortable, homey, clean, and well equipped. We love having the kayaks available for interesting rides along the shore and exploring. It's a great neighborhood for walking and the sunsets and views of the sound from the oversize deck (with a great awning) are spectacular.

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 out of 5
The location and water views were perfect. All of the home appointments were above average, and complete with any potential need anticipated.
The town and surrounding communities were charming and the people welcoming.
The prize however, were the fantastic views, and we look forward to returning.
