Charming, 5-bedroom, beach-front cottage located in family-friendly Groton Long Point. It offers everything you would expect from a relaxing Connecticut shore vacation, with sweeping views of Fisher's Island and Long Island Sound that will take your breath away. Conveniently located 5 min from historic Mystic and under 2 hours from Boston, 2 1/2 hrs from NYC by car or AMTRAK direct to Mystic.
In 2010 we completely renovated our beloved cottage. Our goal was to update without sacificing its traditional cottage charm. We think you'll come to love this special place like so many generations of our friends and family have before you.
Our family uses the cottage for about half the summer, but rents it out for the remaining weeks to families or small groups who will treat the home with respect and who will respect our neighbors and our local ordinances.
We have a seven night minimum stay.
It is also available for 7 months during the winter at off-season rates.

We rented this home for my son’s graduation from USCGA. This was the perfect house, perfect setting and perfect neighborhood. I definitely recommend this property. Cal couldn’t have been nicer. We had a great week!
We have fallen in love with Groton Long Point and with Cal and Jennifer’s house. Amazing views and great for 2 family’s with 4 kiddos. We will have these memories forever and can not wait to return. Cal greeted us when we got there and was very helpful with even recommendations for food and events. I can’t sing my praises of this vacation enough!!
Great location and the house was perfect for a large family vacation. We cooked every evening utilizing the large completely equipped kitchen and the outdoor grill. Steaks, burgers, lobster, shrimp... all that New England has to offer. Plenty of family living space downstairs and the bedrooms were all very comfortable. The owner was very responsive and met us at the house when we arrived. A great vacation. We will be back soon.
We stayed here for a wedding, and could not have chosen a better location/home. The house was so spacious, with 4 rooms (plenty of sleeping space), large kitchen/dining area, and the view is absolutely breathtaking, right on the water. The owner was very nice and showed us around the house and made some great local restaurant recommendations. I highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the area. Thank you for making us feel at home!
We stayed here for our son's graduation from Coast Guard Academy. We couldn't have enjoyed the house more and the owner was more than accommodating. The views are indescribable! The house is very comfortable. The only negative would be the bathroom shower upstairs, it will leak if using the shower option however I enjoyed the tub version without a problem. Would definitely recommend this house for a very enjoyable stay!!!
My husband and I came to Groton Long Point for a romantic weekend after a business trip in New York. We stayed at the newly renovated cottage at the recommendation of friends who stay there every summer. Their description of the beautiful home did not do it justice! The cottage is much larger than it appears from the photos and the recent renovations give it a Beachy Pottery Barn feel that I loved. The views from the front porch were amazing and we spent every evening on the front porch swing, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset. One thing we especially enjoyed was being able to walk to an amazing seafood restaurant called The Fisherman. We will definitely come back again soon and might even bring the kids and grandparents because there is plenty of room for all.
We have stayed at ‘The Cottage” at Groton Long Point two weeks each year for the past 7 years. It is amazing. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, paying special attention to detail. The kitchen looks out to the Sound. The children would sit by the huge picture window in the morning having breakfast watching the sail boats in harbor. The evening was a special treat with amazing sunsets. We would sit on the porch at night listening to the sounds of the bay just enjoying the peacefulness. The view of the water is unobstructed. The Cottage is beach front with a private beach right outside the front door - perfect for families. Plus, it is a hop skip and a jump from historic Mystic Seaport where there is great shopping and delicious restaurants. If you’re looking for more of a night-life, Mohegen Sun and Foxwoods is a short ride away. The area sports wonderful golf courses as well, Pequot Golf Club, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. The Cottage is the perfect getaway place – peaceful, tranquil and a lot of fun. Bring bicycles – it’s a great way to see the area. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful, family friendly cottage.
