WATERFRONT COTTAGE with stunning, panoramic views of Long Island Sound

Located in: Guilford
Charming, beautiful, historic, newly renovated and well-appointed cottage and separate guest cottage both with wrap-around breathtaking water views of Long Island Sound and Indian Cove from each room. Cottage and guest cottage face a natural lagoon with extraordinary and varying bird life - egrets, osprey, cormorants, and oystercatchers, to name a few, along with distant views of Faulkner's Island (and lighthouse) and the North Fork. Staying in the cottage can best be described as living on a luxury boat moored on Indian Cove. Amazing sunrises and sunsets, with only the sounds of the water lapping against the rocks that form the foundation for the cottage. Only available for rental in late July through early September when owners are traveling overseas. Consistent, exceptional feedback from all who have stayed, including some who have then purchased nearby houses or have returned to stay at the cottage. Cottage built in the mid 1800s, with the original structure largely preserved within the larger footprint of the house,

Major renovation January 2018 features new paint throughout the house, hardwood floors, new paintings, photos and posters, modern lighting and fans, area rugs, and wonderful Sonos sound system in living room, bedroom, and family/fireplace rooms, also connected to TV.
