About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Cottage, (plus A 'Crows Nest'). Sleeps 5 + Child

This home sleeps 5 adults comfortably + a child, and is only steps to the water. A family home for generations, it has a modest kitchen and dining area. However it features a very large backyard for outdoor activities, lots of chairs for outdoor dining, and a front porch with wicker rockers and a view of the water.
Also, a BBQ, Washer/Dryer, wifi internet access, beach toys, umbrellas, etc.
The Groton Long Point area is great for boating (power, sail, kayak); the area offers great walking, bicycling, and 3 primary beaches: -- Kiddie Beach, South Beach and Main Beach --- each a little different, ... so take your pick!
