Relax and enjoy a day of sun and sand at either of our two private beaches in Indian Town. Enjoy wonderful sunsets, scenic views of the harbor from the gazebo on the green or stroll the jetty.

Our year-round home is a great location for walking, running and biking. We are minutes away from downtown Saybrook offering everything from a French bakery to an Irish pub, boutique shops, antique and furniture stores and coffee shops. There are a variety of restaurant choices in the area as well as movie theaters close by.

Our home has an open floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and living room with cathedral ceiling. There are three bedrooms, a full bath and a half bath off the master bedroom. There is also an enclosed outside shower with hot & cold water.

Our location is ideal for day trips. Stroll through the charming sailing village of Essex with quaint New England shops, pubs and a ice cream parlor, located on the Connecticut River only five minutes away. Enjoy New England scenery on the historic Essex Steam Train or a River Boat cruise on the Connecticut River.

Spend a day in Mystic, a historic seaside village. Visit Mystic Aquarium or board a tall ship at Mystic Seaport. The Gillette Castle and park grounds are available for hiking and sight seeing.

For theatre buffs, there is the Goodspeed Opera House, Ivoryton Playhouse as well as the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.

Old Saybrook is located mid-way between New York & Boston, a short train ride away.

A great location. Perfect for our holiday birthday celebration weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for a family get together to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Several family members and friends were in town and we found our location to be the perfect distance to the beach/town hall. The beach is great for kids since the water is not deep and it's never really crowded. Francine and Henry introduced themselves upon our arrival and were very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. They live behind the property so they are literally steps away if you need them. The benefit of renting a home in a town like this is it gives more of a neighborhood feel and feels less like a touristy environment. I have family in the town but have always felt that all residents of the town are very friendly and helpful. If we find ourselves in a situation where we'd need to rent a home in this area again this would be our first choice. Thank you, Francine and Henry!

It was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with grandchildren (and their parents), just to get away together for a few days, and the space was perfect. Everything was pristine clean; the two bathrooms (and outdoor shower) were great for the 6 of us; and stores and restaurants were conveniently located. It was nice to have a private beach to walk to, but there are other beaches in town that were also wonderful to visit. We cooked a lot at home, and the kitchen is well-appointed for anything you're making. Beds are comfy, and it was nice to have a washer and dryer to use right in the house. Our hosts were kind, available, and accommodating but also gave us our space. We would definitely go back!

Impeccable property. Everything was in fantastic condition. Clean. Spacious. Relaxing. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this property. Everything was fresh, bright, neat, and kept very well. Very comfortable. Plenty of space for my family of 4 with room to spare. The owners were wonderful and made sure that everything was in order and let us know they were there to help if anything was needed during our stay. Definitely recommend this property and we plan on going back.

Stayed at Francine and Henry Cosker's beach home in Old Saybrook from Aug. 19- Aug. 27th.

with my niece and her two little sons. Their home was very comfortable and close to

everything. The Cosker's were available if we needed them, but they have given much

thought into supplying their guests with the comforts of home that we needed nothing more.

Beach and weather were also GREAT.

Family vacation in comfort

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at this well cared for vacation home in Old Saybrook. The house everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The house has wooden floors throughout. The central air was an added plus. My daughter loved having a small bathroom that came in handy because she has a 2 year old. Old Saybrook is a gem of a town. The beaches are close by, nice restaurants and high end outlet shopping is a plus. I highly recommend this vacation home.

The house was our home away from home. It couldn’t have been more comfortable and appealing. We were in Old Saybrook for a family wedding, a lovely event, and being able to come back to a “home” as opposed to a hotel room was so very nice and relaxing. The owner couldn’t have been more accommodating, it was just a lovely weekend.
