About Lisa Wadge

We have owned and renovated the house and had guests for 7 years. Most return year after year. We are nearby if anything is needed..

Lisa Wadge purchased this house in 2010

Why Lisa Wadge chose Connecticut

The best thing about this site is everything. The water is very special for swimming, the location is great for kids of all ages and the historic beachy feel of the house made us want to buy it and restore it to its original beauty. Now we share the house with others, many of which we call friends.

What makes this house unique

close to the new boardwalk for a great walking tour of Niantic bay

Rustic Historic Charm

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Best feature was the location - the house is situated right on the beach and also just a short walk from town. The master bedroom is also huge and romantic, although no en suite bathroom. Nice back porch. The house overall is charming in a rustic way- the photos on HomeAway really don't do it justice at all. There is no bathtub in the house, which was an issue because we have 3 small kids. No Wifi either, which was surprising. Primitive outdoor shower. We had a nice ocean breeze for the most part, but we had a couple hot nights and ended up running out and buying a couple floor fans. Would stay here again but I hope the owner adds a couple amenities like Wifi and maybe a couple kayaks.

Annual family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this beachfront home for the last 6 years. It is beautifully decorated as a beach house and large enough to easily accommodate my wife and me as well as our adult sons and their wives and children.. It is clean and bright with natural light from its many windows. The proximity to your own private beach directly on Niantic Bay is a great feature. The water is clean and swimming can be enjoyed at low tide as well as high.

If you like to walk, there is the mile long boardwalk along the bay. or simply walk into the center of Niantic and enjoy its many shops and restaurants.

Our family hopes to continue our summer vacation there for many years to come.
