Branford cottage description

Great family, summer cottage well stocked with family games, great books to read and lots of spots to relax in. We are third generation owners, so we have been in the Indian Neck neighborhood since the beginning and love to share the beauty of this area with others. The house is located just one block from Long Island Sound with private association rights to three separate beaches, all with a view of the Thimble Islands. The house is 1424 sq feet and has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms have two sets of twin beds; one bedroom has a king bed and a first floor bedroom has a queen size bed. The screened in porch is facing southeast offering a morning porch for sunrises. You can see the water from the porch between houses. The surrounding area is great for long walks, rollerblading and biking. Outside shower to rinse off when you come up from activities down at the beach. It is a very casual home, a quintessential beach cottage where you can enjoy a relaxing, stress free, summer atmosphere.

Within a short drive or a mile walk away are Lenny's Seafood restaurant, Indian Neck Pizza, and Bud's Seafood market. A great local farm stand market offers fresh fruit and vegetables. Also only a mile walk up the road is the Owenego Inn. Here you can sit on the patio, enjoy dinner and watch the sunset over the water. Branford Harbor is within paddling distance.
Available beginning May 2013
