Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Guilford - Little White Top

Four bedroom cottage with a great screened porch and direct water access.

Remember 'doing the dishes' with family members and friends? Do you love an outdoor shower? Visit this charming 1930's summer cottage with direct water access, large screened porch with wonderful 180 degree views of Long Island Sound. Sleep in the old iron beds with new mattresses and soft cotton sheets. Little White Top is unpretentious and comfortable, designed to allow for carefree and peaceful holidays.

The long and airy screened porch overlooking the water is the hub of the home, where everyone wants to gather to read and converse, sharing breakfast, lunch, or cocktails. The cottage comfortably sleeps 6 people, with 2 bedrooms on the first floor with double beds, and 3 bedrooms on the second floor, one with queen bed, the other two with double beds. There is ample parking on the property for five cars.

Moor your own boat in the waters off the shore. Easy launching of kayaks and canoes can be done directly from the property and from the beach just down and around the corner. Kids can choose to paddle around the protected waters off Tuttles Point or go out to the various rock islands and explore the tide pools there. More adventurous adults can embark on longer paddles to Faulkner's Island Island Light or to Sachem's Head or the Thimble Islands. Enjoy picnics on the front lawn, with ample space for children to play. Sun yourselves and take a dip at the water's edge, on the rocks in front of the Cottage, or take the little ones 600 feet down the hill to the sandy Association Beach.

The protected waters off Tuttles Point offer swimming, fishing, and kayaking and their protected nature is especially good for children. At all tides, ospreys, herons, gulls, and other shorebirds seek out these waters and the rich marshlands nearby.

Tuttles Point is a quiet, low-key residential neighborhood in a private association with its own beach, in the historic town of Guilford. Guilford Town Center offers interesting shopping and fine dining, Shakespeare on the Green in August, as well as craft and antique shows. A Pick-Your-Own farm/orchard is an 8 minute drive from the Cottage. Collect some berries and bake a pie in the simple but well appointed kitchen! Biking and hiking trails are easily accessible, as well as the local Whitfield House Museum. The Peabody Natural History Museum and the British Art Museum at Yale University are a 1/2 hour drive to be enjoyed along with Frank Pepe's Pizza in New Haven, considered to be the very best!

Great family vacation on the CT shoreline

  • 5 out of 5
We booked this in July 2014 and enjoyed a week at 'Little White Top', named after the rocky reef area that surrounds the point. Everyone in the family loved it ... quiet, quaint, a genuine old school gem of a seasonal home with a fantastic protected waterfront location. I kayaked daily, including a couple of longer trips up the nearby river and across the open water to the Falkner Island lighthouse which is now a bird sanctuary. It's a 3 mile crossing so not for the casual kayaker or rough windy days. But there are many great places to kayak to for all skill levels. The coastline here is great to explore with 2 beautiful parks in the area one just a 10 min paddle (or bike ride), beaches, and you can also paddle as far as the Thimble Islands on a nice day. The house was perfect for us with plenty of bedrooms, and the two half baths plus nice shower accessed from the backyard. No TV was great, and nicely balanced by the rock solid WiFi connection. Kitchen had everything we needed and was a pleasure to cook in. Nice to have the 5 gallon drinking water supplies available. We swam both off the rocks and off the little beach just 4 doors down, where you could also keep kayaks if you prefer to launch from a beach. If you swim off the rocks it helps to use water shoes, as it's slippery. The screened porch is fantastic and we spent many a family night there having dinner and playing board games. The view across the bay is great, particularly around July 4th when lots of fireworks are viewable. Just loved it, and the owners were great too, very friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended, we hope to come back!

Lovely Waterfront Home in Guilford

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this lovely cottage in Guilford for two weeks in 2013 and are returning for 2014. One of the best features of the property is its waterfront location on Long Island Sound. You can launch a kayak right from the property or from a beach 3 minutes away. There’s plenty of room inside, with five bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, a living room, and a screened-in porch; no TV, but there is internet access enabling you to use Netflix or other online providers (essential for our kids, and it worked out great last year). It’s also much more accessible than other summer vacation spots we’ve visited, lacking the traffic hassles of places like Cape Cod.

True New England Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This is a true New England cottage. We come back every year because we love the house, the view, the porch, the neighborhood, the rocks to swim off of out back, and the beach down down the street, among many other assets. It's perfectly located--just far enough from town to feel isolated, but a quick (5 minute) trip into one of Connecticut's most beautiful greens and vibrant town centers.

Charming 1930s summer cottage with direct water access; large screened porch with 180 degree views of Long Island Sound.

Remember taking turns 'doing the dishes' with family members and friends? Do you like to take outdoor showers? Here is a cottage with beadboard walls, iron beds, and the softest cotton sheets. Renters can moor their own boat in the waters off the shore, with easy launching of kayaks and canoes directly from the property. Take an early evening kayak paddle to the Little Stone House and have a delicious lobster roll at the picnic tables on the dock there. Enjoy picnics on the front lawn, with ample space for children to play. Sun yourselves on the rocks at the water's edge, right in front of the cottage, or walk down the hill 600 feet with little ones to the Association private beach. Tuttles Point is a quiet residential neighborhood in a private association with its own beach in the historic town of Guilford. It's perfect for walks and bike rides. The waters off Tuttles Point offer swimming, fishing, kayaking ventures both short and long and its protected nature is especially good for young children. At all tides, ospreys, herons, gulls and other shorebirds seek out the bay's protected waters and rich shore lands.

Guilford Center offers dining and shopping, Shakespeare in August, as well as antique and crafts shows. A great pick-your-own farm/orchard, Bishops Farms, is an 8 minute drive from the cottage. Pick berries and bake a pie in the comfortable, well-appointed kitchen! Biking and hiking trails are easily accessible in Guilford. The Cottage is unheated, suitable for May 15 thru September 30 only.
