Charming, 5-bedroom, beach-front cottage located in family-friendly Groton Long Point. It offers everything you would expect from a relaxing Connecticut shore vacation, with sweeping views of Fisher's Island and Long Island Sound that will take your breath away. Conveniently located 5 min from historical Mystic and under 2 hours from Boston, 2 1/2 hrs from NYC.
In 2010 we completely renovated our beloved cottage. Our goal was to update without sacificing its traditional cottage charm. We think you'll come to love this special place like so many generations of our friends and family have before you.
Our family uses the cottage for about half the summer, but rents it out for the remaining weeks to families or small groups who will treat the home with respect and who will respect our neighbors. It is also available during the remainder of the year at substantially reduced rates.

ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I came to Groton Long Point for a romantic weekend after a business trip in New York. We stayed at the newly renovated cottage at the recommendation of friends who stay there every summer. Their description of the beautiful home did not do it justice! The cottage is much larger than it appears from the photos and the recent renovations give it a "Beachy Pottery Barn" feel that I loved. The views from the front porch were amazing and we spent every evening on the front porch swing, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset. One thing we especially enjoyed was being able to walk to an amazing seafood restaurant called "The Fisherman." We will definitely come back again soon and might even bring the kids and grandparents because there is plenty of room for all.

The Cottage at Groton Long Point
The Cottage at Groton Long Point
We have stayed at ‘The Cottage” at Groton Long Point two weeks each year for the past 7 years. It is amazing. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, paying special attention to detail. The kitchen looks out to the Sound. The children would sit by the huge picture window in the morning having breakfast watching the sail boats in harbor. The evening was a special treat with amazing sunsets. We would sit on the porch at night listening to the sounds of the bay just enjoying the peacefulness. The view of the water is unobstructed. The Cottage is beach front with a private beach right outside the front door - perfect for families. Plus, it is a hop skip and a jump from historic Mystic Seaport where there is great shopping and delicious restaurants. If you’re looking for more of a night-life, Mohegen Sun and Foxwoods is a short ride away. The area sports wonderful golf courses as well, Pequot Golf Club, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. The Cottage is the perfect getaway place – peaceful, tranquil and a lot of fun. Bring bicycles – it’s a great way to see the area. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful, family friendly cottage.

Year Purchased: 1938
About the owner: Our family has owned this cottage since our grandfather bought it in 1938. It's now owned by the third generation. Several of us live locally and all of us come back every summer with our kids and grandkids.
Why the Owner Chose Groton Long Point:
Groton Long Point is a little piece of heaven. Spending time there is like being transported to carefree summers of years gone by. You can choose to take advantage of all kinds of activities, or you can sit on the porch and simply watch the boats go by. It's perfect for kids of all ages. There are uncrowded beaches, playgrounds, an old-fashioned snack shop & ice cream parlor, fishing piers and nature trails. Mystic is ten minutes away and there are nearby restaurants for every taste and pocketbook. It's convenient and easy to get to, but it feels like it's a million miles from the rat race. And its close to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos and all the nightlife and entertainment they offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is a perfect mix of old fashion charm and modern convenience. The recent renovation updated everything and the kitchen has all new appliances. And it has central air conditioning for those occasional days when the sea breeze isn't quite enough.
