With beautiful sunsets over Fishers Island Sound, this shingled summer cottage sits 200’ from a small beach (shared with the neighbors) on peaceful and private Mason's Island. There are 4 bedrooms (3 with twin beds, the other with 2 sets of bunks - sleeps 10 if you use all 4 beds in the bunkroom), 3 bathrooms, a large living room, separate dining room, well-equipped kitchen, and an all-weather porch (with picturesque ocean views). Amenities include a gas grill, cable TV, Wi-Fi, phone, DVD player, washer, dryer, and a dishwasher. All linens are provided and a routine cleaning fee is included.
This home has been enjoyed by the same extended family for 5 generations. It is particularly suitable for family gatherings, and provides a truly traditional summer cottage experience in an exclusive setting. We do not rent often because we use the house ourselves for much of the season.
Mason's Island is private residential community on a small island connected to the mainland by a causeway. The Island is well-suited to walking and biking. It is a safe, family-oriented community. There are expectations that the residents and renters will respect privacy, personal property lines, and sense of space of other residents. Our neighbors greatly value their privacy and the peace and quiet that helps make it such a special place. As a general rule, we turn the music down after 10 p.m.
Whether it’s a family vacation or a gathering of old friends, you can get away from it all but still be close to many local attractions including the Mystic Seaport Museum, the Mystic Aquarium, the casinos, excellent restaurants, wineries, Watch Hill, and Rhode Island beaches. We are also close to 2 public golf courses, and there are many options for getting out on the water with numerous day cruises and other charter opportunities available locally. Guests are encouraged to bring kayaks and paddleboards, but jet skis are not permitted.
