1910 Beachhouse, Most exquisite private beach in Connecticut

Located in: Old Saybrook
-- 1910 Shore house; only one surviving the 1938 hurricane on this stretch of beach. Immense lot, gorgeous beach, dunegrass covered dunes, very private. House is large, with basic amenities. Ideal for the writer and artist (and their kids and in-laws!)
-- Old Saybrook has a convenient Amtrak stop on the Boston-NY line, is just off I-95 between New Haven and New London. The stop is 3 miles and an easy UBER/LYFT ride from the house.
-- Large shaded porch behind our private dunes, with path leading to our private beach. At end of dead end road, perfect for kids. Google Earth: 41o 16' 38.97' N and 72o 24' 26.54' W
-- Four bedrooms upstairs (two overlooking the Long Island sound), large living room/dining room area downstairs + kitchen.
-- Unheated, so only available for summer or early fall rentals.
-- After your swim, towel off and stroll up the sandy path to the porch. Later, enjoy the sunset from the top of one of our dunes. There's no other property like this in Old Saybrook or maybe even all of Connecticut!

--Please be advised that this is a century-old vacation cottage with used furniture, sometimes flakey appliances, windows that occasionally stick, and perhaps a lump or two in the mattress. It is unheated, and so May & late September can be quite cold; the cottage is not available in the winter months. The shower and bathroom facilities may strike some as primitive. We like it this way -- it's cozy, comfortable, and laid back. But if you strongly prefer, say, the Hilton to camping, this is unlikely to be your cup of tea. Email us for a brochure with more pictures.

-Occupancy is limited to 10 adults. By renting this property, you agree to the rules given below for its use.

-- Please consult VRBO calendar on upper right of webpage for availability
