We live right down the road, and love the area. Point O'Woods is a special place where you can relax, or keep as busy as you want. Kids can explore the great outdoors and parents do not have to worry, as this private beach community provides a safe haven.

Beautiful vacation spot
The cottage is exceptional for spending family nights playing board games, watching movies or watching boats traveling in the distance. The beach is fantastic. It s well equipped with everything you need for cooking or BBQing. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. I highly recommend it for anyone mobility impaired. Very easy to negotiate. The owners are very nice and went out of their way to accommodate our family.
Amazing views in a beautiful peaceful setting.
Loved our stay this weekend for Parents weekend at the Coast Gaurd Academy. This house is immaculate with amazing views. Had elderly parents stay with us this weekend and this offered a beautiful main floor suite for them. Watching the sunrise each morning was simply amazing. Looking forward to staying here again.
Best cottage we have stayed at POW
I have been going to POW since I was a baby and now we are continuing the tradition with our boys and the next generation. Best cottage we have stayed at POW. Beautiful home with absolutely everything you would need for a comfortable and relaxing stay at the beach. Sunrise unbelievable , view of water fantastic. Clean house that provides everything needed for daily living. Washer and Dryer were bonus for our family!!! Definitely will want to rent again next year. I would completely recommend this cottage.
One of the Best!
What a beautiful home and layout for our recent vacation. The house had all the amenities you could ask for. The house was clean and kept up very well. Greg and Linda were very easy to work and handled all of our questions quickly. I have been vacationing in Point O' Woods for over 40 years and I can honestly say, this place has been our favorite. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great view, awesome house and very easy owners to work with. We had a great time and have already secured the house for 2 weeks next year. Thanks Greg and Linda!
This beach house is stunning....water view is so relaxing. It's a great size with 4 bedrooms/3 full baths. I have two teenage daughters (14 and 17)...the older one stayed in the lower level which is a bedroom, sitting area, full bath and door to the patio and water view! How perfect is that for a 17 year old! :) The home is fully renovated with central air and wi fi. We have stayed at Point O Woods for many, many years and this is the best home we have rented. I already mailed my deposit for next year!
Thank you Greg and Linda (owners)....you are such great people. I'm grateful to you for letting us rent your wonderful home.
Fantastic Home, Exceptional Community, Convenient Location
My family had the pleasure of renting this property academically for two years and I can't say enough about the home, location and owners! It is a very comfortable home with expansive ocean views in a beautiful seaside community. The owners were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend this property for both short and long-term rental. We came to Old Lyme to visit and never left!
