About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps
Two bedroom cottage just a short walk from the beach. Both bedrooms are on the main floor. One queen bed, one BR with bunk beds. Kitchen is open to a beautifully sunlit porch with dining table, and sitting area with couch. Sliding doors lead to comfortable, breezy deck off porch. (We seem to always have a breeze even on the hottest of days!) Indoor and outdoor shower. Living room has cable television. Attic fans keep house cool. This comfortable cottage is just 6 houses from the beach, so you can easily go back and forth throughout the day. This is one of the very few cottages on the street with an extra lot, so you have a nice yard to enjoy as well. The attic will be used for storage, so you'd only go up there to turn the fans on or off.

About Keri Jockers
I'm Keri, and have been coming here every summer for my entire life. This house is the place I call home, as it's been in my family since my father was a baby. My grandfather bought it shortly after my father was born, so my father and his sister grew up coming here all summer. I was also lucky enough to be able to spend the entire summer here as a child, as did my cousin. We had our gang of beach friends with whom we'd swim the day away, spend hours on our bikes, and play kick the can until dark when our parents called us in. Not a bad way to grow up! Now, my husband Ryan and I are lucky enough to both be middle school teachers and get to enjoy some of our summer here with our two young children. We met at UCONN back in the 90's, and from the first time Ryan saw the cottage, he was hooked. He loves it just as much as I do, and now our children get to grow up with the same wonderful memories that I did.
Why Keri Jockers chose Saybrook Manor
As I mentioned above, the location is ideal. Being so close to the beach, and with the Oyster River within sight behind the cottage, you get the most beautiful breezes almost all the time. The yard is double the size of most (thank you, Grandpa Nigrelli for being smart enough way back in 1943 to buy a double lot!) and you have a very short walk to the beach. We go back and forth from the beach to the cottage to use the bathroom, get more snacks, drinks, whatever, and it's no big deal. Huge perk! As far as the house itself, again, the back porch and deck are just open, light, breezy and so comfortable and inviting. The front bedroom with the queen bed is very breezy and cool and just a very comfortable place to sleep.

lovely cottage, 5 minute walk to the beach
cute beach bungalow, close to the beach, and the lovely town of Old Saybrook.
the owners were available easily by phone with any questions.
Neat and clean.
Having gone to school in Saybrook, it was fun to return. The cottage was clean, the kitchen had everything one could need, and the outside shower was the best!
Keri was quick to answer any questions and the neighbors couldn't have been more friendly.
Very nice Connecticut Shoreline Cottage which has all you need. Clean and only a few houses from the ocean! Private beach and fabulous sand bar. Close to shopping and many restaurants. We had a great time and would absolutely rent again!
All of the activities listed above are available within the area. Sporting equipment is not provided, but I checked off the things that would be easy for you to do in the area.
