Property description

Pot Rock Island ( AKA Treasure Island) The Thimble Islands, Stony Creek, Connecticut!

BOOK DIRECTLY. NO BOOKING FEES REQUIRED.

Pot Rock Island is one of the 32 seasonally inhabited Thimble Islands, carved by the glacier then strung like pearls and cast onto Long Island Sound off the coast of Branford, CT. Find it just two miles south of I-95 Exit 56, 90 miles east of NYC, 11 miles east of New Haven in the quaint New England seaside village of Stony Creek.

The island, locally known as Treasure Island, provides half the shelter for the favorite yacht anchorage among the Thimbles. Pot Rock is a 10 acre, hour glass shaped island, 1.5 miles off the Stony Creek Town Dock. The island is subdivided and owned by six families that live in six private summer residences.

The home available for rent is on a 1.3 acre +/- wooded parcel that includes nearly 360º of water views, beautiful pink granite outcroppings, a glacial pot hole, a tidal pool, and access to a small beach. There are rights of way across and around half the island. The other half of the island is private.

Transportation to and from the town dock is provided by a launch service,Thimble Islands Ferry Service, operated by Capt. William Smith. The launch runs regularly during the season. The boat trip takes 15-20 minutes. Off-season trips are easily arranged by appointment. Free Parking is available on the street in Stony Creek or on the dock, first come, first served.

The house, built in 1987, is post and beam construction with an open floor plan and a bright and sunny southern exposure. It features three bedrooms. On the first flr,, one BR has two sets of bunks, one BR has a full. The 2nd level MBR boasts a cathedral ceiling two closets and spacious king size bed. Adjacent to the MBR in the upper level loft there is a single daybed. Linens are BYO and occupancy is limited to 10 guests.

There two full baths and a H&C outdoor shower.

This island home is off the grid! Utilities consist of propane for cooking, lights and refrigeration, 12 volt solar lighting, H+C city water as well as 12 volt cell phone chargers. 120 volt electrical power is a portable generator, available for limited use. For boat tie up there is a shared floating dock, a short wooded pathway walk from the house.

We have a one week minimum rental period. Weeks run Sun. to Sun. Check in is 3pm .Check out is 11am.

The Thimble Islands may just be Connecticut's best kept secret! They provide a beautiful and serene atmosphere, inviting you to enjoy all the pleasures life at the seashore has to offer.

Please don’t hesitate to call your hosts Peter and Susan Brown at cell# 843 217 8677 to answer your questions.

Please note: As there is no public access to any Thimble Island, please call to arrange your private showing.
