About the property

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!

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!

Coastal New England Charm & An Owl!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay by Niantic Bay! My friends and I were racing in a regatta at a nearby yacht club and the house was perfect for us. Nancy is so hospitable- she met us at the house and walked us through where everything was and how to work everything. She checked on us throughout the week, which was very considerate. Everything was perfect. The rental included linens and towels, which was a wonderful bonus. There's also a new washer and dryer. We made breakfast each morning and enjoyed sitting on the sun porch. There was even a chipmunk and hooting owl in the garden. It was pretty chilly this weekend, but Nancy left us flannel sheets and fleece blankets, so everything was cozy. The neighborhood is great- a very short walk to the beach. We were also able to try some great restaurants in East Lyme and Niantic. We look forward to staying here again the next time we sail in Niantic Bay!

This summer cottage is an old New England home with lots of charm!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this old and charming New England home, AC only in master bdrm, but that was perfect for us! This Niantic location was amazing, close to beach, nice backyard, friendly neighborhood. We took advantage of the local icecream place Frosty's, seafood restaurant Dad's (warm lobster rolls), Castello's Italian restaurant (best sea scallops and goat cheese bruschetta), we walked the Niantic boardwalk too! We fell in love with Niantic and Blackpoint, we hope to come back next year! Nancy, the owner was in touch and helpful with any and all questions, even texted me that she had crab traps and my boys were crabbing each time we went to the beach!
