Property description

Enjoy some fun in the sun in this charming cottage located within a few short steps to the beach. Sip your morning coffee and read the newspaper while watching the waves from the front screened in porch.
This cottage is perfect for a family vacation as it sleeps six. All of the bedrooms are located upstairs, two with twin beds and one with a double bed. If you are up for cooking, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, and you are invited to enjoy your dinner on the back porch overlooking the tennis courts. If you prefer you can order a lobster dinner from a local restaurant to be delivered to you cottage or dine at one of the many spots our seaside community has to offer.
While enjoying your stay, there will be plenty to do for visitors of all ages. There are a variety of children’s activities every day, including but not limited to tie dye and beach scavenger hunts. Families are invited to attend the bonfire on the beach, and roast your own s’mores over the open flame. Immediately following the bonfire every week is the movie on the beach, were you will be treated to a family friendly movie while relaxing under the starts on beach blankets and beach chairs.
When you are not participating in these activities, lounging on the beach, or swimming in the water, there are tennis courts, a horseshoe pit and a basketball hoop to keep you entertained.
Forget something? No problem. Head on over to Garvin’s Store for some fresh coffee, donuts, beach clothing, gifts, slush puppies, Italian ice and a few basic grocery items.
A favorite tradition of Hawk’s Nest renters is the fresh beach donuts delivered from cottage to cottage a few times a week.
Rainy day? Not to worry. There are renowned art galleries and museums, outlet shopping, antiquing, live theater, the mystic aquarium, the Southeastern Connecticut’s Children’s Museum and so much more located just a short drive away.
