Perfect For Families & Special Gatherings
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 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 private 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.

Perfect weekend getaway
The house was just as described and in the pictures. The host was very thorough with information about the house and easy to communicate with. The house itself was perfect for hosting with 1 large open common area with ocean views. The expansive lawn and private beaches were perfect for having a fire and being outside. Would definitely stay again!
The location of this property is absolutley amazing!! The home itself is slightly outdated but completely stocked for any and all needs. We stayed for the weekend with a large group for a family gathering and aside from food- there was nothing else we could have possibly needed. Very comfortable and Patricia was an excellent contact to work with. Extremely responsive and pleasant.
Beautiful home on the sea
The pictures didn’t even do this place justice. We were so impressed by the house and how comfortable it was, in addition to its beauty and amazing location. Fully stocked and ready to be cooked in and enjoyed. Would definitely rent again.

We had wonderful time.
We booked cottage around Dec 31, 2017. Owing to cold, we didn't venture out a lot, but we had wonderful time there, the owners were very friendly and helpful. The property and interior was a bit old, but it did not affected our stay. The view from living room was amazing.
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. We are so glad you all had a wonderful time even though the weather did not cooperate and it was cold. I am glad you had plenty of wood on hand to build a fire in the main room overlooking the ocean! We hope to have you again as our guests in the future. Happy New Year!
A slice of heaven
Well, it was most accurately the whole pie! My family and I spent the Thanksgiving holiday here. It was a lovely property that allowed a large group of us to be together. The area in the house that sold me was the open space overlooking the yard and the water. It made the perfect venue and backdrop for our holiday dinner. The house was well stocked and set up perfectly for us. Even the small kitchen did not cramp our work as we prepared dinner. The size of the house allowed us to be together!
The correspondence with the owners was easy and they were very accommodating. Working with them from start to finish made the experience pleasurable.
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. I are so glad to hear that you and your family had a wonderful time and a special holiday together. The weather was certainly gorgeous for November! I am happy to hear you had everything you needed and the views of the ocean provided the perfect backdrop to your large gathering in the main room. I hope to have you as our guest again in the future!
