Connecticut shore cottage with ocean views, sun porch, and vintage knotty-pine great room.
50-yard walk to either a private or town beach. You can set up your spot and still walk back to the cottage for snacks!
Historic seashore style has vintage details and modern updates. Newer stove, toilet, shower stall. It's a quaint and simple New England cottage without extensive renovations.
Three parking spaces, safe and close to the front door (four if you have very small cars). No street parking anywhere. A shared right-of-way offers a walkway to the backyard and to the sea wall, where you can stand to take a look over the water (no seating, just a standing view). Fenced patio where you can see the ocean and feel the sea breeze.
A slice of New England coastal charm. You will not find a cottage of this size, this close to the beaches, at this price. It's a real getaway--feels like stepping back in time to a slower, quieter life but with perks (like a microwave and air conditioner).
It's a cozy atmosphere on a mellow beach street.
We are working to keep it as a family place, so you have the sense of staying at someone's cottage rather than renting commercial real-estate. We have family furniture (and some belongings) in the cottage. As a vintage family cottage, it is not toddler-friendly. We have antiques and seashore knickknacks but no more toddlers in our family. So children over five (5) years old will get along better at the cottage.
Three bedrooms, each with a double/full bed (guests bring linens). The largest bedroom has two dressers. The two smaller bedrooms have one dresser. Closets in all of them.
Small bathroom with newer toilet, sink/vanity, and shower stall.
It's a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street. Little traffic, little rushing around. Lots of people sitting under umbrellas or wading in the water at low tide.
$20 at town beach lot if you need more than our three parking spaces.
A shared right-of-way for walking to the backyard patio with outdoor shower, to the street, or to a standing view at the sea wall. Full outside clothesline for hanging wet towels and bathing suits. Small patio area with an ocean view in a fenced yard. Sit and watch the water, or you can take a little stroll out to the sea wall in the right-of-way for a look at the sunset or to see the shoreline (no seating in this shared space between cottages--just for standing and walking).
Perfect location for the full shoreline experience--halfway point between New Haven and New London. So relax on the cottage sun porch or hang out at the soothing beach for the day. Or drive west to New Haven for theater and museums or drive east to New London for arts and entertainment. Also close to Mystic Seaport and Mohegan Sun Casino.
During their visit, guests will have access to all rooms in the cottage. Two couches on the sun porch. Two couches in the living room. The rooms are fully furnished with a full kitchen. WiFi and small flatscreen television--tv has ports for your HDMI cords to devices and laptops or for your smart sticks. No cable!
(The attic and three porch storage closets are restricted.)
