Do you remember spending your childhood summers with your toes in the sand? Do you remember the quaint beadboard cottages that dotted the landscape? Do you want your children to have those same memories? Or do you just want to find a charming spot near the water and find some peace and tranquility in a cottage that is from an era which we will not see again. Return to the tranquility and carefree days of simpler times at our cottage by the Long Island Sound in Bay View, Ct. The cottage offers the conveniences which we have come to expect in our lives without losing the charm of long ago. This quaint cottage consists of three bedrooms (1-queen, 1-full, 1 with 3 twin beds), living room, dining room, kitchen, enclosed porch, and 1.5 baths. Although Bay View beach (which is private) is only 1/2 block away, there is easy access from the cottage to Rt. 95, Merritt Parkway, the Milford Train Station, and so much more. But truly, most days you will choose to make a cup of coffee when you wake, walk down to the beach and watch the sun rise. After spending the day relaxing at the private beach, take an invigorating outdoor shower, fire up the gas grill and have a backyard barbecue. End your day of bliss reading your favorite book on the front porch. And when it’s time to wash those beach towels, don’t worry about going to the laundromat. There is a washer and dryer right off the kitchen. If there is a day of rain – no worries there either! The cottage has high-speed wi-fi internet access, cable TV (with HBO), and plenty of board games for you and your kids. (And if that fails there are movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping nearby.)

Why Jane Scully Parshall chose Milford
My husband grew up in this cottage spending his summers swimming and sailing on the Sound and enjoying this family friendly neighborhood.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is one of the few cottages in Bay View with the authentic beadboard interior. When you rent this cottage, you have access to Bay View Beach during your stay. Even though the beach is just a stone's throw away, you might want to go into the City to see a Broadway show. The proximity of the BEACH, the train station, RT. 95 and Merritt Parkway make Bay View in Milford, Ct. an ideal spot to vacation.

Cute cottage in family friendly neighborhood
We had a great time at this cottage with our 1 and 2 year old. We appreciated the 2 minute walk to the private beach as well as the yard in the back for outdoor play. The beach was not crowded, mostly populated by families, and there were three lifeguards on duty during the day. The neighborhood felt safe and seemed to be made up of both vacationers (families with young children) and those who live there year round.
We also loved James Park with its enclosed playground, which is a short drive away as well as Pop's Family restaurant. Beardsley Zoo is about 20 or so minutes away and was a fun outing one morning.
The house itself is rustic but very clean, cutely decorated/beachy, and comfortable. The washer and dryer were a blessing, and work well. There isn't a microwave which we sort of found amusing but did just fine without it. The air conditioners are in the upstairs windows and do a good job of keeping the downstairs cool as well. Overall we had a great time and hope to revisit in the future!
Cute Beach Cottage for Sisters/Daughters Get-Together
Comfortable and clean, cute beach cottage. We have vacationed here 3 years in a row and continue to have the best time. Plenty of good restaurants, shopping, and water activities.
My family and I had a wonderful week at the cottage.
Jane’s cottage was furnished beautifully. The cottage has a classic beach obiance, which made for a relaxing getaway. It was well equipped with a proprane grill in the backyard, new GE profile gas range,extra large refrigerator and washer/dryer. Two suggestions I would have for future renters would be coffee K cup machine and microwave oven. We greatly appreciated the gift certificate for ice cream as well. My family absolutely would stay in this cottage again!
Perfect beach location
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jane was very responsive and the house was very clean, tidy and had all the necessities for going to the beach. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in town.
