Overview

About the property

Perfect For Families & Special Gatherings

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!! Centrally located near New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. This private and expansive oceanfront home in Groton, CT, minutes away from Mystic, offers the perfect holiday gathering spot, family vacation, small beach wedding, family reunion, or birthday celebration with panoramic views of Fisher’s Island, Mouse Island and Long Island Sound. With a large expanse of lawn, the home is surrounded by ocean on three sides and protected by a stone seawall. Positioned on 2 private acres of land, the house, built in the 1960s, was designed in the style of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, with its cathedral ceiling in the main room, large, custom, floor-to-ceiling fireplace and large windows throughout the house to capture ocean breezes and views. The interior is simple and cozy and has a nostalgic cottage feel. It is a very unique property for Groton Long Point, as the home is on a peninsula, while most homes in Groton Long Point are very close to one another with little privacy. The large lawn is ideal for little ones to run around, hold a family gathering and barbecue, or play volleyball, horseshoes, croquet, or other games.

The location is very serene and quiet yet centrally located to local attractions. In addition to the town beach which is only a few feet from the house, the home also offers two private, sandy beaches on the property—and we mean private, as no one else has access to them but you and your family/friends. One beach is long, and could accommodate a larger number of people, while the other beach is smaller, but still very scenic and also ideal for families. Grab a lawn chair, light a camp fire, make s'mores with your loved ones on the beach at night with our portable fire pit, camp under the stars on the beach or lawn, or just sit on the porch and watch the boats sail by in the day and the stars come out at night. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner outside on one of the two patios, or enjoy a special picnic on the lawn while watching the swans, egrets, geese, ducks, and herons swim by. There is also a pier for fishing, catching crabs, or launching a boat. The property also has a southern exposure—the sun rises on the left and sets on the right, so you can watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the porch. The best part is that although the location is quiet and private, you are minutes away from downtown Mystic, supermarkets, Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, amusement parks including Lake Compounce, cinemas, zoos, horseback riding, boat rentals for various water sports, and so much more.

The home is also ideal in the off-season for those looking to get away, whether it be a short- or long-term retreat, sabbatical, to finish a novel, or to just get away for peace and quiet.

The water views are amazing! This home is minutes to Mystic with it's great restaurants and quaint shops. Lots of privacy. Patricia responded quickly to all our questions. We used the fireplace each night, which made it so cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Perfection!

We could not have asked for a better location. The house itself was incredible! It was spacious, beautiful, and well-maintained. The owners were a delight to work with. If I could give it 10 stars I would!

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views and unbeatable location. This house is quite a steal for the price. You won't have an any more unobstructed and near private experience of the Long Island sound in this area. Patricia was an excellent communicator and very fair throughout the whole process. She seems to genuinely enjoy having others experience her property. Would highly recommend to anyone interested.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to celebrate my 50th Birthday. The lawn is spacious and the views are amazing. We loved the beaches.

The house itself is set up perfectly for a gathering of people. Very open downstairs with plenty of beds for people to sleep over. The two downstairs bedrooms are good for couples. The upstairs rooms have multiple beds in each room, but are still spacious. The air mattresses are really nice -they are tall just like a regular bed.

The kitchen is tiny, but well stocked with cooking utensils and serving dishes.

Wonderful property. It was hard to leave when the weekend was over.

I am so very glad to hear that you all had a wonderful time celebrating your special day and that the property was spacious enough for all of your needs. It truly is a one-of-a-kind view, especially for this area. Being on a peninsula, yet close to everything is truly a treat. We hope to have you again as our guests and wish you a great summer.

Long weekend, great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a handful of people stay at this property for a bachelor party in October and it was absolutely perfect. Aside from the property being incredible (wish it weren't a rainy weekend so we could have used it more), the house itself was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of open living space, a great kitchen with everything we needed to make a proper feast for 12. Large unfinished basement where you could hang out without worrying about making too much noise. The bedding is a little bit sardine style, with two upstairs bedrooms housing a handful of inflatable mattresses, but the mattresses were very comfortable and there was plenty of space considering.

All in all we had a great stay. Patricia was very accommodating and we're definitely considering renting again just for the heck of it, but next time in the summer so we can make the most of the waterfront.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. I'm so happy to hear that you all had a great time, despite a rainy weekend! I'm glad you had plenty of open space to accommodate your group and had everything you needed for your feast. If you thought the views and property were beautiful in October, imagine the summer with the use of the two beaches and boats sailing by on all three sides of the property! I look forward to having you as our guest again in the future.
