Awesome Thanksgiving with Family
My family and I had an awesome stay. We spent Thanksgiving with my son who's stationed at the sub base across the river in Groton. The house was great; seven beds in the five bedrooms, a well stocked kitchen for the preparation of Thanksgiving Dinner and a large dining room for the feast. The two showers and bathroom in the basement were great when you have six people trying to get ready all at once. The location was awesome, only a block away from the beach. The communication with the owners, Jane and Dave, was outstanding. I got quick responces to all my questions. The entire experiance was an A+ Thanks for helping create a great family memory!
Very nice home with all the amenities required to have an amazing stay.
Home was very clean and had loads of character! When we visit New London again we will for sure seek out this property again!
Great property for a boys weekend
Great property for a boys weekend and easy to coordinate with the owners.
Charming beach house
5 of us stay in this home for four days while attending my son's wedding. We totally enjoyed the stay. Access to the beach was greatly appreciated and we had time to take several beach walks. The home is quaint and spacious. We would definitely stay here again.
We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay ! You were wonderful guests and would love for you to stay again !
Our best to you and your family,
Rustic charming house with beautiful wood floors. Close access to ocean beach. amenities need update
Our family enjoyed our stay however one full bathroom for five rooms was insufficient the bathroom and showers in basement were not convenient to access - steep stairs ,musty and dusty. This house has potential but needs update. Owners were very helpful and friendly and have indicated upgrades are forthcoming.
Hello! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We honestly never considered adding a second full bath upstairs due to the half bath downstairs and the other 2 large showers, changing rooms and bathroom down in the semi finished basement. Yes!
this fall we are planning on more updates. We love the rustic charm of the house and would like to preserve its beauty and character. In regards to the basement being musty I wish I had mentioned to just turn on the dehumidifier.
That does the trick!!! Thanks for staying at our house.
Charming beach house in New London
My multi generational family rented this house for one week. We enjoyed our stay so much that we immediately planned to rent it for 2 weeks next season. The house is spacious with a wrap around porch and has the charm of old New England that is difficult to find. I spent every summer in a very similar cottage as a child and found myself feeling at home immediately. It is equipped with everything you may need, including a washer and dryer and showers in the basement. My extended family lives in the area, so having a large dining room and kitchen was a major plus. The beaches are pristine and private. The area has back roads that are excellent for bike riding.
If you like to take day trips, there are many interesting places to visit. Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium are just a 20 minute drive. The Block Island ferry, museums, and restaurants are just a short ride in downtown New London. I can never get my fill of whole belly clams, lobster rolls, and fish & chips.
Jane and Dave are excellent hosts and always available to answer any questions.
Don't miss the opportunity to experience this very special house for your vacation.
Dave and I are so happy you enjoyed your
stay! It is always our goal that our renters
have a wonderful time in the house, enjoying the beaches and all that this beautiful area has to offer. What makes renting our house even more special is meeting wonderful people like you from all over. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and we want you to stay again !!!!!
This area is not only beautiful but there is so much for everyone in your family to do! The private beaches alone are breathtaking. While sitting on the white sandy beach looking out at Long Island sound you can see ferries, sailboats, Fishers Island and two historic lighthouses. Smell the salt air, feel the sea breeze, hear the waves & the fog horn! It's fun and relaxing just taking it all in.
