About the property

Relaxing Getaway & Perfect Family Retreat

Please let us answer any questions you might have 203/589/8774 or email (see contact in photo)

Our beach cottage rests among the tall trees with a peaceful view for a deeply relaxing experience. There's a gentle breeze and fans to beat the summer heat and a stone fireplace and a small space heater for cool spring and fall evenings. You don’t have to worry about linens and making beds, before you arrive the beds will be made and beach towels will be ready to go so you can start to relax upon arrival. Point Of Woods has a large white sand beach with a boardwalk adjacent to a nature preserve with additional beaches all just a short walk away.

Our cottage was built on the high point of Point O’ Woods in the 1930’s and usually enjoys a pleasant sea breeze. We've created a comfortable, relaxing space, with updated kitchen and bath while maintaining a simple cottage feeling. The kitchen is well equipped and beach gear is available - chairs, umbrellas, floats, sunscreen, toys. There are two hammocks in our shady back yard, a picnic table, a large table and chairs, outdoor shower, and on the side porch is a gas grill with outdoor furniture for dining and lounging.

Point O' Woods is an ideal place for families. Two tennis courts, a modern playground, basketball court, pavilion, boat launch, scenic overlooks, wooded trails, organized beach blanket bingo and movies on the beach organized by the beach association twice a week. The ice-cream truck parks at the beach all day or take a short walk, to "Scoops Ice Cream and Market."

If you plan to visit colleges, we are only 20-minute drive to Amtrak station in Old Saybrook. Yale, Wesleyan, Trinity, Brown, Connecticut College, Providence College are all 30 minutes to an hour away.

What makes this cottage unique

Greyrock sits on the highest point of the beach, just right to catch the summer breeze. Our cottage rests on a large, rocky plot full of mature, shade trees. You can see Long Island Sound from the large kitchen window and from the living room, kitchen and deck. There is outdoor dining furniture on the raised deck and a picnic table and two hammocks in the side yard.

Girls Night Away

  • 5 of 5

Kendra's beach cottage was perfect for our short girls getaway! The location is awesome. We visited one of the local vineyards and then headed to Mystic to Red36 where we had dinner and drinks. The cottage itself is good condition and we loved how quiet it was at night. I especially loved the updates as well as the charm that they kept. It had everything we needed as well as thoughtful items not all homeowners tend to leave out for visitors. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking to stay close to the beach with plenty of activities to do. Kendra was also very easy to work with, great with communication and super friendly! Thank you again!!

We had a wonderful time, the seaside neighborhood is beautiful! I love to go birding and there is a wildlife preserve nearby where we were able to see a variety of birds. There are also beautiful stretches of beach for those who enjoy beach combing and some nice trails too! We can't wait to go back!

A Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kendra's beautiful cottage in Old Lyme had everything we needed for our long weekend. My husband and I came out to the East coast to watch our daughter play soccer and instead of staying in a hotel we opted for a beach cottage....and we were so happy we did. Being that we were traveling from Southern California, we definitely didn't want to pack the bedding or towels that most places asked of us. The cottage was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Our morning walks around the neighborhood and beaches (less than a 5 minute walk away) made me realize just how happy I was to being staying in a home and not a hotel. We drove to Mystic Seaport so I could check "Mystic Pizza" off my bucket close that it's a definite must, as is Essex. Kendra was so easy to work with and replied to my emails within hours. I highly recommend this beautiful cottage in Point O' Woods when your travels take you to Connecticut. We definitely would love to stay there again.
