Close to a railroad station, and on a bus route to New Haven and Branford. An easy two mile drive to area shopping centers. Easy access to excellent local arts, theaters, restaurants, and nightlife. East Haven and Branford also offer many local events that are interesting and fun no matter what you may enjoy! Great place to experience a beautiful New England shoreline area setting with nearby swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking.
Relax & Enjoy the East Haven Town Beach. The town beach is approximately 2-3 miles away and is open to all guests, but the parking lots are for town residents only. Parking is available on the local side streets, just beware of no parking zones as cars parked illegally will be towed. That also goes for vehicles parked in the beach parking lots without a residents sticker. The town beach is clean and safe( a town police station is located at the beach entrance). Across from the beach is the very fun Sandpiper Restaurant, featuring great food and ice cream with indoor and outdoor dining!
Many of our guests just enjoy the quiet surroundings of our cottage, while viewing our gardens from the back balcony, or sipping on a glass of wine while watching the birds and butterflies that visit our cottage garden!
