Fun family week at GLP

  • 4 of 5

This was an old fashioned cottage, perfect for a week at the beach. Clean with adequate amenities and rustic charm made this a simple and great family vacation. Added bonus of bikes, kayaks and a boat mooring.

Owner's Response: Sue, Thanks for your comments and happy to hear you enjoyed our 'old fashioned' beach cottage. Many people comment that there are not very many 'originals' left at GLP. No need to worry about a little sand on your feet here! Hope to see you again soon.

Everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was four adults and two children and everyone loved The Point and the house. It's the quintessential summer cottage -- nothing fancy but genuine and cozy. The owner was accommodating and available by text, but we had everything we needed, including two kayaks, beach chairs, gas grill, bikes, and things like dish soap, paper plates, toilet paper, tissues, and paper towels. Prepare to sit in rocking chairs on the porch and enjoy the quiet neighborhood with a view of the water. I grew up in Groton Long Point, so I am familiar with the whole area, but it's easy for anyone to find his way around and there are plenty of places to visit in nearby Mystic and Noank. Great family getaway, and good value.

Just what we needed. A well-maintained, comfortable, clean house with a porch and back yard,, steps away from a little beach.

Cute beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a cute place! There aren't many old style beach cottages left in GLP and this place was great! The owners were very accommodating and let us use the kayaks and beach chairs. It's right near the beach and in a very quiet area. Thanks for the stay!

Perfect family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love GLP and were eager to be back. This cottage didn't disappoint. It had ample sleeping space and the 1 1/2 baths (one recently updated) were a big plus The owners were very accommodating and set up a dog run and they had two kayaks for use. The large yard was another bonus and allowed for people to gather and enjoy the summer evenings. We would surely stay here again and look forward to returning. Thank you.

Our family of 5 (3 young kids) loved our stay in this cottage. The pictures and description of the cottage are accurate and the location is fantastic. Nice large and flat yard for kids to play in. Owner was responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
