Property description

The special magic of this unique property captured us on first sight. The peace and tranquility, closeness to nature and spectacular views make this cottage a place difficult to leave.

This Branford shoreline cottage, located in the village of Short Beach, is warm and cozy in the winter and cool in the summer. It provides a peaceful and quiet setting with spectacular views of salt marshes and the Farm River, where Osprey and Egrits nest and feed just off the deck. It's just a short walk to beaches and trailheads and an easy drive to Yale and New Haven.

We offer a SMOKE FREE, natural environment perfect for quiet safe meditative thought and relaxation, walking distance to beaches, hiking trails and gentle beauty of the Connecticut shoreline, while less than 10 miles from the museums, galleries, theater and other cultural attractions of New Haven and Yale.

Keywords: Yale visitor housing, Connecticut Shoreline vacation retreats, zen, yoga, meditation retreats
