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

Comfortable Cottage/Crescent Beach Area for Rent by the Week
average rating of 4.7 based on 10 reviews

The cottage was just the right size for my husband, baby dog and I. It was very clean.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time. There are small local beaches within walking distance and picturesque neighborhoods to walk through. Mystic is just a short drive away and there were plenty of baby and dog friendly activities to do near by. The town of Niantic was very close and had nice restaurants. We would very much so recommend this property. The owners left lots of information regarding the area and were very pleasant to work with.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week during our stay. Our grandchildren joined us and loved the beach. The cottage was very comfortable and the location was accessible to the town and restaurants. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed walking around the area. Maryann and Fran's warm hospitality made us feel very welcome.

Comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this comfortable little home. We brought our 2 little dogs with us and we all settled in very quickly and easily. The owners are very nice and easy going and they have thought of everything. The backyard deck off of the kitchen was great for hanging out. The neighbors are also nice. A perfect little get away close enough to the area beaches and the town. We walked to town with our little doggies several times during our stay. We will likely rent this house again next summer.

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.

We had a wonderful week! The cottage had everything we needed and more! Awesome location. We loved sitting on deck and enjoying our morning coffee! We would definitely stay here again. My teens walked to the beaches! Perfect vacation spot for families or anyone wanting a cozy get away!
