Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

The Seafoam is a newly renovated year-round cottage in the Chalker Beach community in Old Saybrook, CT. Everything - inside and out - is brand new, and the beach is only a 3 minute walk away!! The kitchen is equipped with a range, toaster, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker with seating for four - although there are several extra chairs for the friends you'll make while you're here! The bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, and closet. (Bring sheets and towels.) The living room has a queen sleeper sofa, cable TV, and broadband internet connection for the rare inclement weather (you supply the computer). The updated full bath has a stand-up shower, but the enclosed outside shower is the guest favorite! The large deck off the kitchen has seating for four, and leads to a back yard with a gas grill. Watch the sunrise over the marsh from your bedroom window, and the sun set from the back deck.

Great time in a cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days staying at this cottage. It's not huge, but was perfect for three adults and one child, and we were so impressed that it was so immaculate and comfy, with lots of little extras provided by the hosts. It was very relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying the sea air, and the beach is just a few minutes walk. It's in a nice quiet beach community, only a few minutes drive to all the fun spots and restaurants in the area.

We would definitely stay again, and even our five year old wanted to know when we could go back!

Thanks Ron and Betsey!

Lovely cottage, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Seafoam cottage was the perfect place for our weekend stay while in town for my cousins wedding. The close proximity to the beach, shops and a fantastic breakfast at The Tea Kettle make Seafoam the perfect seaside home. Betsey and Ron were very accommodating and responsive. Looking forward to my next stay at Seafoam! Thanks so much.

Fantastic Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

Seafoam Palace at Chalker Beach was outstanding. Very clean, cozy and relaxing. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a summer vacation. Ron and Betsey have an outstanding property and we look forward to returning in the future. We would highly recommend to all people looking for an excellent beach rental!

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. A slightly larger bathroom shower would have been nice! It was the perfect size for my husband and I and two of our young grandsons.

It was a lovely neighborhood. Everyone was friendly, people out walking, stopping to chat. The public beach area was a 3 minute walk and very clean. My grandsons enjoyed looking for shells, playing in the water and then returning to the house and taking a shower "outside". The proximity of shopping, great restaurants, other beaches such as Harvey's, the town of Old Saybrook, etc. made it an ideal location to stay.

Owner of the house told us about a great place to catch crabs. Even though we only caught one that was good size, it was fun to go back to the house, steam and share. Such a treat.

We were only there for two days, but would stay again and recommend to family and friends.

Thank you

Jim and Rita Reid

The Seafoam Palace is the perfect location for a summer getaway, whether you're looking for romance or family fun! The private beach is a very short walk away, and there are plenty of activities for the kids at the Chalker Beach clubhouse. Old Saybrook's quaint Main Street has shops for browsing and restaurants for dining. A quick trip in either direction on I-95 brings you to even more options: New London where you can pick up the ferry for a day trip to Block Island or Long Island; either of two resort casinos - the Mohegan Sun and MGM-Foxwoods; historic Mystic, CT for shopping in Mystic Village, touring Mystic Seaport, or visiting the penguins (et al) at the award-winning Aquarium; premium outlet shopping in Westbrook and Clinton, CT; the classic Essex Steam Train and Riverboat that takes you on a scenic train ride and then a cruise on the Connecticut River. Also close by are plenty of on-the-water dining and entertainment option, vineyards, art galleries, and antique shops.

Other Activities: Canoe, Kayak, Bike Rentals available just up the road
