Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy your vacation in a cottage that is comfortable in any type of weather. There is a great deck for meals outside when the weather is sunny, lots of windows and ceiling fans in every room. But there is more… a furnace provides warmth for the cooler days that can come early in the season, and central air provides cooling for those occasional hot days in the summer when even the sea breeze seems too warm. It is always comfortable!

One bedroom has a double bed, and the other has twins...and both offer dresser drawers for storage. Additionally there are two single futons to stretch sleeping capacity to a max of six people. Bedding and bath towels are provided. The house has a fully equipped (eat-in) kitchen and a comfortable living room with TV/DVD. The large back yard has plenty of room for outdoor games, as well as a gas grill and picnic table for summer meals. A washer and dryer are available in the basement.

The Beaches – Located in the Crescent Beach Association, the cottage provides access to two beaches nearby. Crescent Beach is a lovely private beach on Niantic Bay, just about six blocks and an enjoyable walk away. Crescent Beach has a great snack bar which is open for breakfast and through the day for easy meals in flip-flops and a swimsuit. In addition, your rent will provide you with a pass to McCook Park which is just beyond Crescent Beach on the bay. McCook Park offers another beach, rest-rooms, picnic areas, play equipment and parking for guests.

About Mary Ann Romano

We have long enjoyed the Connecticut shore as a vacation spot and particularly enjoy relaxing on the beach and boating on the bay. In fact, we liked this area so much that several years ago we moved here full time and live just three miles distant from the cottage.

Mary Ann Romano purchased this house in 1988

much more than expected

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised, the neighborhood was lovely and so quiet! We took wonderful walks all around the area. The small local beach was just what we needed with 2 little people visiting. We went to a concert on the beach and getting to the Main St. was easy and what a fun place to visit. Owners had things very organized and had brochures and highlights of places to visit. Very pleased and relaxing vacation in a lovely area.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the cottage from Jun 1st through Jun 11th 2013. This was actually our second time staying at this location and we loved it just as much the second time. Fran and Mary Ann are wonderful hosts and everything we needed to know about the house and the area are made available upon your arrival. Recommend for couples and families. The area is is so scenic and there is a lot to see and do. Thank you again Mary Ann and Fran. We'll be back.

Great stay for families

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of living in the house for the last two weeks August, accompanied with great weather (approx. 85 degrees), swimming at the beaches (5 minute walk away) and sightseeing around the area (travelling by car).

Mary Ann, the hostess, was very helpful in showing us where to find the various attractions such as shops and sites to visit. The house had all the features we needed for a good and relaxing vacation (travelling with two small children), and we would like to recommend this place to other families planning a vacation along the Connecticut coastal area.

Cottage near the Sound

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to spend 5 weeks as we await the birth of our grandchild! Owners were gracious and helpful. Cottage had all we needed; very comfortable and clean. Great deck in the backyard for grilling and enjoying all the birds in the area. Loved the easy walk down to the Sound and around the neighborhood.

Owners left a book with all kinds of helpful information. Niantic is charming and a good place to branch out to other lovely areas in Connecticut. Easy train ride into NYC as well.

Would love to come back
