Recent Old Saybrook reviews

  • Great Stay!

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding at the Saybrook Point Inn, which was a quick 10 minute walk away. The owner was extremely responsive. The cottage is quaint, cutely decorated, and has everything you need for a great stay. There is a small deck which overlooks the large grassy lawn - a perfect space to soak up some sun. The yard is especially great for any four legged friends you bring along!"

  • Awesome beach house!!!!

    "Our family just spent a week at the Sea Glass beach house. It exceeded our expectations! The owner has thought of everything from cookbooks to beach towels, picnic table tablecloths to grilling tools and lobster pots. The decorations made this place so inviting warm that you instantly felt at home. Laurie was flexible with our arrival time since we were traveling a distance. We even had a bottle of wine waiting for us! Oh.....and we loved, loved, loved the beach, sand bars and sunsets! Truly this is a special place! Hats off to the owners!!!"

  • A little slice of heaven

    "My family loved the 'cottage' on the water. Views from every window were fabulous. The location is private and quiet, and quite spectacular. We chose the location because it was half way for both of our adult children (NYC and Boston) who joined us on weekends. During the weekdays we went site seeing and visited nearby seaport towns along the Ct. coast. Shopping was fabulous at the outlet malls (less than 10 miles away). Old Saybrook is a quiet, less touristy town than some of its neighbors, but has great restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and a great yarn store! This is also a dog friendly town with several groomers if that service is needed. But, what we enjoyed most was just relaxing at the cottage, enjoying the sunrise and sunsets on the water, and talking long walks along the coast. It was just what we needed after a difficult 8 mos. deployed overseas. The cottage itself has a very nice, up-to-date renovated and well outfitted kitchen and renovated baths, and is comfortably and casually furnished. There were plenty of linens and towels. Cleaning supplies were available, as well as food staples left by previous tenants for use, and we left behind our unused items (ie coffee/tea etc.) for the next group. I would highly recommend this rental. (Time of year - early April)"

Old Saybrook Travel Tips

Stay in Old Saybrook Rentals for Your Next Family Vacation

At the mouth of the Connecticut River, you will find the town of Old Saybrook, Connecticut.

The mix of delectable restaurants, soothing atmosphere, and wonderful beaches makes any Old Saybrook lodging your own personal haven.

What to See near Old Saybrook Lodging

Many Old Saybrook rentals are situated near the fabulous marina where you can see everything from the smallest boats to high-class yachts as the town is where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound. For a taste of the area’s beauty, be sure to stop at the Fort Saybrook Monument Park which boasts 18 acres of woods, featuring a walking storyboard tour. The General William Hart House is another must-see. Built in 1767, you can take in a little bit of elegant American history during your Connecticut travel.

What to Do When Staying in Old Saybrook Rentals

The quaint little town in which Old Saybrook lodging is located is a great place to go antiquing as well as strolling along the beach or swimming in the sea. The Essex-Saybrook Antiques Village features more than 100 dealers with treasures galore. When you are not antiquing, be sure to hit Harvey Beach on Plum Bank Road. It is a shallow water beach that is great for the whole family; you can enjoy some memorable picnics that will make you want to return to Old Saybrook rentals year after year.

Day Trips during Connecticut Travel

During your Connecticut travel, be sure to take advantage of your location and take a few day trips. You can then return to your Old Saybrook lodging choice in the evening. Head to Mystic, Connecticut for its world-famous pizza, marina, and aquarium or to New Haven to see the Yale campus. You may even venture into New York City (about an hour away) for a Broadway show!
