WELCOME This simple and sweet cottage is fully updated while retaining its old-fashioned charm. It is a wonderful family vacation rental perfect for all but the youngest children (because it so close to the water). Located in Point O’ Woods, a private beach community, it is close to historic Old Lyme as well as to Ocean Beach Park, Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium.
The first floor features a living room, dining room, back deck overlooking Long Island Sound, along with three bedrooms, one with twin beds and two with double beds facing the ocean, plus two full baths, the lower level has one bedroom with queen bed, and separate single person fold out bed, and one full bath with private patio looking out to Long Island Sound.
There is a flatscreen TV with dvd, and wi-fi available.
The charm of this home is its simplicity and comfort and the safe, friendly community of Point O’ Woods. Kids can have lots of freedom to ride their bikes, head to the beach or hunt down the ice cream truck.
Feel free to use our two-person kayak.
