Property Description

Classic summer cottage featuring large eat-in kitchen, living room, glassed-in porch with 180 degree views of Long Island sound and three upstairs bedrooms plus a one bed loft. Indoor and outdoor shower, propane grill, kayak, rowboat and plenty of parking. Well water and septic system, full amenities (refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, TV, VCR, linens).

You won't believe you are connected to the mainland with the incredible feel of this charming spot perfectly situated within a private peninsula enclave of cottages. Tidal Joshua Cove allows you to walk clear across during low tide. Two private islands are within a stones throw to add to your scenic vista.

So many possibilities to eat or entertain inside, on deck, on lawn, on tanning rocks or on private sandy beach. This cottage is perched above its own seawall with steps to the stone landing or beach - your choice! Lawn games, sitting under the shade of a mature maple tree in an adirondack chair or napping in a hammock add to your pleasure.

Typical seasonal residents are owners and renter families that have been coming for decades to enjoy a step back to simpler times where daily swims, sunning, walking, fishing, clamming, boating and friendly impromptu gatherings abound.

Guilford (founded in 1639) is a quintessential New England town that boasts the largest central town green in New England surrounded by boutiques, churches, coffee shops and historic homes. You are 3 miles to the Town Green and 20 minutes to New Haven, home to Yale University and many cultural activities. Located within 90 minutes to New York City and 2.5 hours to Boston make this an easily accessible summer getaway.

Create memories that no resort can duplicate.

Exquisite views, cozy house, lovely host...

The property is absolutely gorgeous! We were fortunate to be there during the peak colors of the fall. The drive from the interstate to the house was actually a treat everyday. The house was comfortable and perfect for both relaxing and enjoying the views and the changing tides as well as entertaining our many friends and family. I cannot express e... Read More

We rented June 17th through the 24th. I first have to say how amazingly accommodating the owner is the home is rented with one tv but he put a second tv in to accommodate my needs. The home is beautiful, quaint and exactly what I imagined a Connecticut beach house would look like. What is in the pictures is exactly what you get and more. This home... Read More

An amazing experience

This cottage really helped to make our holiday over in Conneticut a very memorable one. We were over for a week in May to attend our sisters graduation and the cottage was a wonderful place to celebrate with other family members. It was beautifully and simply done inside and had everything we needed for our stay - there was even a small boat and ka... Read More
