World Traveler who loves to come home to this beautiful piece of paradise. We live in a neighboring home with the same incredible sunrises and salty fresh air.
This property is on one of the prettiest streets in Old Greenwich. People often walk their dogs, jog or stroll on our lane. Some of the homes have been here for over 100 years, while others are newer. Tomac Cove which is a stones throw from 'The Cottage' has claim as one of the landing spots for the Pilgrims. Wildlife abounds with Egrets, Blue Herons, Geese, Ducks, Ospreys, Hawks and more. Anya Seton, a prolific author, best known for her books turned Hollywood movies, DRAGONWYCK and FOXFIRE, lived in a home on this property. Her book THE WINTHROP WOMEN is a historical fiction novel that takes place right here in Old Greenwich and Tomac Cove- a great read.
On the water! Views! Water bird viewing! Sunrises! Light House. Stamford Harbor. Beautiful skies. Casual fishing. Serenity.
We loved our stay here! This is a New England style cottage in a fantastic town with friendly people. The downtown of Old Greenwich and the train station is easily accessible from the cottage. The owners welcomed us when we first arrived and even showed our children things to do on the property like collecting sea glass! They were always a call away and immediately responsive to any questions we had though never intrusive. Even providing me with a list of things to do in the area like shops and places to take our children. The view from the back is beautiful and we spend many mornings and evenings opening all the curtains to take advantage of that view. You are right on the Long Island Sound! We did get to see a gorgeous sunrise on several mornings while drinking our coffee. The cottage has all the amenities you need - plus the cooking and entertaining essentials. Soft towels and bedding and all the personal touches of a bed and breakfast. We hosted a Thanksgiving dinner here and everyone commented on how cozy and comfortable it was! Wonderful stay and will love to return one day again!
A fun, contemporary cottage, beautifully decorated with nice clean lines and skylights, looking out onto sweeping views of the Long Island Sound. Very convenient to the train and to the charming center of Old Greenwich. Very restful, and the hosts thought of every welcoming touch--plush towels, coffee, tea, toothbrushes, clean crisp sheets. We will rent this cottage again!!
We were attracted to the property for its proximity to our family and its pet friendliness. The informal cottage feel exceeded our expectations as we watched the sunrise over the Long Island Sound from our living room and master bedroom each morning. The open living space in the cottage was perfect for our and our dog's needs. Downtown Old Greenwich is 5 minutes away for shopping convenience as is Greenwich Point Park for outdoor enjoyment. The owners live next door and were warm, friendly and welcoming and yet non-intrusive. We stayed for nine weeks and loved it. We would highly recommend it for anyone who loves the New England coastline ebb and flow.
Binney Lane is lovely tree lined lane. 'The Cottage' looks out onto Stamford Harbor and Stamford Lighthouse.
