Adorable open layout beachy Dutch colonial cottage at Black Point. 3 bedroom, 2 bath with passive solar sunroom. Short walk of 2 blocks from beach. Parking pass for private beaches included. Large fenced in yard. Quiet, kid friendly neighborhood has lots to do; neighborhood beach (2 blocks), kayaking and canoeing (1 block and I usually have 2 kayaks and a canoe available), playground, tennis, basketball - all included. One block walk to small seasonal neighborhood general store/sandwich shop. 20 minutes from Mystic, casinos. Rhode Island and Misquamicut beaches are about 30 minutes. House has ample off street parking, firepit, w/d, internet, dishtv. Neighborhood beaches are 2 blocks away and have free parking and access.

There is a garage on the property. I do not include this garage in the rental agreement and do not allow access to it. The parking for the house is in front of the garage (driveway is on Ridge Trail).

This 1930's built house - like most beach properties - does not have central air conditioning. It does have heat which enables year round use. It has been energy star evaluated and is fully insulated and has upgraded electrical service. The baths have been updated. There is a new washer/dryer, hot water system, gas grill. The house has exposed ceilings, older windows, an original kitchen sink and cabinets, and painted wood floors (some of which have some slope to them). This is not a modern new house. It is lived in and great for relaxing. It is clean and comfortable. After the spell of record breaking sweltering heat last summer I bought a couple of small a/c 's which will be in two of the upstairs bedrooms and one in the living area. It is impossible to air condition the sunroom. It needs to be vented in the hot weather ( just open sliding windows and circulate air). If you are a devotee of central air this house would not be best for you. The shore area is cooler and fans are much more efficient at letting air thru as the sunroom can act like a furnace if the house is left closed up. In a hot humid spell, then by all means the a/c will help considerably but do not count on running a/c to attempt to cool a sunroom. Thanks...I just want to explain. Thanks!

Perfect location. Everything you could possibly need was available at the house and the owner, Nancy, was extremely helpful with recommendations for things to do/see in CT and RI. I had planned an itinerary that allowed for extra sightseeing and the recommendations were things I never would have known about!

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Nancy’s Niantic cottage home - it had all the charm that I remember from renting at Black Point Beach Club during the summers when I was young! It was a few long blocks away from the beach, so it is much easier to take a car down rather than drive and beach parking passes were provided.

This home had all the comforts one would need with ac window units, washer/dryer on premise and comfortable beds. It also had a nice sized yard to enjoy, esp with a nice fire at night time. Nancy was very helpful with any questions I had and also provided a list of recommended restaurants and shopping in the area.

Thank you Nancy!

Nice little house along the Connecticut coast.

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's nice little house in East Lyme, Connecticut was the perfect location for visits with our son, who was finishing up a semester long college program offered by the National Theater Institute (NTI). It took us no more than 15 minutes to go from Nancy's driveway to NTI. The house was clean, well appointed and served our needs just fine. It seems like it would be a great location in the summer too with the abundance of nearby beaches and historic waterfront towns.

Adorable, warm, cozy New England cottage

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I loved our 2 night stay. The house was warm, clean and cozy. It is charming and has a lot of character. We were welcomed with fresh out of the dryer bedding and candles.

The owner is very welcoming and nice. She communicates ahead of time to let you know of the charming qwerks that come along with a special home, which made me even more excited to stay there. She is very thorough and down to earth. The cabinets and drawers were fully stocked with dishes, glasses, mugs and silverware. I was even more excited to see a coffee maker and filters for it!

Our winter stay was nice and quiet. The center of town is very cute and has shops and a cute candy shop with diner attached.

This property is right near the water and beaches so I'm sure summer would be more busy in town and on the roads.

I loved our stay and will definitly return for a second stay! Literally a home away from home. Didn't want to leave!
