About Fern MacMillan

The Vintage Beach House at Sagamore Terrace is owned by family. It was build in 1940 as a summer cottage and later winterized and upgraded to an all year round residence. The original extended family continues to visit and use the house on a regular basis.

Fern MacMillan purchased this house in 1940

Why Fern MacMillan chose Westbrook

This home and beach has been enjoyed by four generations.

What makes this house unique

The front of the house faces a large open green space. The walkway to the beach cuts down the middle. Therefore traffic is behind the house and provides a large safe area that is quiet and rural. There is very little traffic and therefore provides a great place for walking or running. All residential in nature and provides beautiful views of Long Island Sound to and from the beach and neighboring streets.

Property was a nice cottage with very good location steps from the calm LI Sound

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well stocked and plenty of fresh blueberries for breakfast and dessert on the bushes outside. The calm beach was great for my young kids who could easily float around with other family members without big waves to worry about. Lots of fun for the whole family. Felt a little dark with all the paneling, but otherwise a great summer family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. The old fashion knotty pine is not loved by all we know-😀 But too dear to us to replace. Best Regards, Fern MacMillan

Informal but comfortable and clean. A proper Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach House. One very minor problem that was quickly fixed by the owner and we were enjoying our stay. It fits like an old pair of shoes. Comfortable and easy to put on. Did not need to look for anything. Well stocked and everything was easy to find. Would rent again at anytime.

Even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

5 dads playing golf in the area stayed here 10/20-10/23. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, and the location is perfect. It's quiet and relaxing but still very convenient to many restaurants and stores, and you can't beat the short walk to the beach. Fern - the owner - was very responsive and helpful with all our questions, and we hope to stay there again next year.
