Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A charming original turn of the century cottage that was recently renovated. One main room plus a full bathroom and Ikea kitchen. It includes a back porch that gets a perfect amount of late afternoon sun. The cottage has electric baseboard heat for cool Fall nights. We are located in Indian Cove Beach Association with a two block walk to the beach. You are welcome to enjoy our kayaks, bikes to tour the area and a fire pit.

The space
Just want to mention this is a very small cottage. In great weather the outdoor living space is a wonderful addition of space.

Guilford, Connecticut, United States

Today I had a guest mention the cottage was magical. It made me smile. Maybe because I feel like I succeed in creating someplace special. A place to relax, retool and spent some time in nature. The cottage is nestled in the woods with tall trees. We are also a short walk to the beach. It is a bit primitive because this is how cottages were built in the 1920’s. Very simply.

This is my fifth renting my cottage which is located next to my house. It was fun turning this cottage into an oasis. I enjoy sharing this special place to all who visit. I close it down in the winter months and reopen mid April. I grew up in a small town in Illinois. We lived at the edge of town across from a cornfield. I have lived in Milwaukee, WI and Dallas TX before moving to CT back in 1988. I work in the fashion industry which is both creative and fun. My favorite latest read. The Rhythm of Life by Matthew Kelly.
