1930s Waterfront Cottage on Tuttles Point

Located in: Guilford
Remember 'doing the dishes' with family members and friends? Do you love an outdoor shower? Visit this charming 1930's summer cottage with direct water access, large screened porch with wonderful 180 degree views of Long Island Sound. Sleep in the old iron beds with new mattresses and soft cotton sheets. Little White Top is unpretentious and comfortable, designed to allow for carefree and peaceful holidays.

The long and airy screened porch overlooking the water is the hub of the home, where everyone wants to gather to read and converse, sharing breakfast, lunch, or cocktails. The cottage comfortably sleeps 6 people, with 2 bedrooms on the first floor with double beds, and 3 bedrooms on the second floor, one with queen bed, the other two with double beds. There is ample parking on the property for five cars.

Moor your own boat in the waters off the shore. Easy launching of kayaks and canoes can be done directly from the property and from the beach just down and around the corner. Kids can choose to paddle around the protected waters off Tuttles Point or go out to the various rock islands and explore the tide pools there. More adventurous adults can embark on longer paddles to Faulkner's Island Island Light or to Sachem's Head or the Thimble Islands. Enjoy picnics on the front lawn, with ample space for children to play. Sun yourselves and take a dip at the water's edge, on the rocks in front of the Cottage, or take the little ones 600 feet down the hill to the sandy Association Beach.

The protected waters off Tuttles Point offer swimming, fishing, and kayaking and their protected nature is especially good for children. At all tides, ospreys, herons, gulls, and other shorebirds seek out these waters and the rich marshlands nearby.

Tuttles Point is a quiet, low-key residential neighborhood in a private association with its own beach, in the historic town of Guilford. Guilford Town Center offers interesting shopping and fine dining, Shakespeare on the Green in August, as well as craft and antique shows. A Pick-Your-Own farm/orchard is an 8 minute drive from the Cottage. Collect some berries and bake a pie in the simple but well appointed kitchen! Biking and hiking trails are easily accessible, as well as the local Whitfield House Museum. The Peabody Natural History Museum and the British Art Museum at Yale University are a 1/2 hour drive to be enjoyed along with Frank Pepe's Pizza in New Haven, considered to be the very best!
