Property description

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 historic 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.

Car: Recommended

The beach house is located is a private association area, with three private beaches - one 50 feet from the front door. It's family friendly and quiet -- but close to Mystic and all that Mystic has to offer (shopping, restaurants, nearby casinos, museums, etc.)


Owner info

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. It features central air conditioning for those occasional days when the sea breeze isn't quite enough.
