Guilford cottage description

Indian Cove cottage on private road with two sandy beaches, boat dock and swimming raft. Kayak, swim, sail, fish, clam, bike, hike. Friendly community where families have come for generations. Great place to let kids roam on bikes (15 mph speed limit.)

Big-sky view of the Long Island Sound. Watch from the deck as the osprey soar overhead and dive for fish. Walk on the beach in the moonlight with the lighthouse from Faulkner's Island twinkling in the distance.

Large new deck with gas bbq, retractable awning and pots of flowers. Bamboo floors throughout, new tempurpedic mattresses, newly remodeled kitchen with dishwasher, bedrooms and bathroom. WI-Fi, cable TV, 2 bikes and kayaks (two sea kayaks and one small kayak that can be launched from the beach). There are fresh herbs and tomatoes (later in the season) available for your use. Large picnic table on the deck seats 8.

We have tried to equip the house with all the things we'd like to have in a vacation house: Le Creusset pots, sharp knives, plenty of good quality dishes, nice table linens, 2 Brown Jordon chaise lounges, new Tempurpedic mattresses, comfortable linens and pillows.
