Property description

Inquiries are increasing for rentals of my cottage during this lovely time of the year. Run away from home to this perfect couples' hideaway. Shelter Harbor is a private community on beautiful Quonnie Pond which is separated from the ocean by a barrier beach. Escape the stress of everyday life in a new two-bedroom cottage at the end of a quiet road. Relax by the two-sided (living room/bedroom) gas fireplace and enjoy the 42-inch flat-screen HD TV with cable, ipod dock, DVD or CD. Hardwood floors and antique touches enhance the open plan. Have an intimate dinner beneath the chandlier. Rinse off after a day at the beach in the double shower or soak in a bubble bath in the 6-foot whirlpool tub. There are books and magazines to read and music to listen to. The small office provides cable connection for your computer and WIFI. Master bedroom has king-size bed and 37-inch flat-screen tv. Guest bedroom also has 37-inch tv. Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and Sealy Posturpedic pillow-top mattresses with memory foam. You'll always feel comfortable thanks to central air conditioning and propane heat.

Private beach rights, wonderful walking or jogging on quiet roads or well-marked hiking trails. Two private tennis courts, basketball court, beautiful restaurants nearby.



FALL RENTAL RATES ARE A BARGAIN! These are my favorite months and the most beautiful in the Harbor. Weather and water are still warm, summer folks have left the beach. We love to take a picnic of lobster tails, French bread, salad and a fine bottle of white wine to the beach to celebrate...whatever! Take long walks, have dinner at the Shelter Harbor Inn. ANGLERS WELCOME. SPEND A HALF DAY OR A DAY FISHING OFFSHORE! Stay longer than you planned! Half-price for September and October.




Activities (on-site or nearby): Golf, fishing, swimming, surfing, casinos (Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods), sightseeing (Mystic Seaport, Newport), boating, live theater, biking, wildlife viewing, health/beauty spa, shopping and more.

Suitable for one or two couples. No pets, no smoking. Year round as available.

Location

DO YOU LOVE TO FISH? DO YOU HAVE A BOAT ON A TRAILER? Bring it! We have a mooring in Quonnie Pond (1 block from the house) that you could use. There is a launch ramp for your boat. Fishing is great in the pond and the ocean. You can also surf-cast from the beach. There are many charter fishing boats in the area. We'll provide names and recommendations and tell you where to buy bait.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Stonehaven is our second house in Shelter Harbor. We also own 75 Wagner Road. Our family came here in the 1970s when Alex (on the left in the picture) was five years old. David and I (on the right) live in New Jersey in the winter but come up every weekend we can. Alex's wife, Renee, is also a beach person and their two children, A.J. and Jordan, love boating and swimming.
