About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Saturday is the changeover day for the minimum week long stay, ideal for a couple. Summertime: bask in the sun on the beach, or curl up with a book in the shade on the garden patio. Autumn: walk the shores, or sit by the fire. Spring: enjoy the bloom of flowers and the salt air. Every season has its own delights here on the Connecticut shore.
Halfway between New Your City and Boston, and situated at the back of a cluster of houses at 98 Limewood Avenue, the Ennis Cottage is away from street and traffic noise, but within 200 feet of a private beach. The cottage has been completely remodeled and is tastefully furnished and supervised by the owners.
In a minute one can sit with a panoramic view of Long Island Sound, between Haycock point and Indian Neck, looking out toward Green Island and the Thimble Islands. Fishing and boating are excellent.
A small park within one mile offers tennis, basketball, and a children's playground. A marketplace, liquor store, laundry, and three restaurants are within walking distance, and a larger mall and churches are with a few miles. The Branford Green hosts evening concerts, the Guilford Green that has a five acres of lawn, with Music on weekends, live Shakespeare on stage, surrounded by antique buildings with shops each unique and different from each other.

Local Farms offer Fresh organic produce, and August offers The Guilford Fair c.1859.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Orchard, Branford, CT, USA:
We bought in Branford because it was one half hour from our home, had a lovely beach and nice neighbors. We can go into New Haven to the theater, art galleries. Not far from the casinos and all our kids.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Love clamming, sailing on the Terviseks, swimming. Branford has many excellent restaurants, from really classy to outside patio dining in a marina. The center has a town green which has many activities through the summer, plus interestng shops and stores. We are a half hour ride to the outlet shops. And it is quiet.
