I live in an eleven room house 100 yards from Long Island Sound. The bedroom for rent has a double bed. The shared bathroom is large with two sinks. There is a half bath and a walk in shower on the first floor.
Depending on the season, you can swim in the Sound and/or walk on the beach which is rarely crowded. You will be less than twenty minutes from New Haven with it's great theaters and wonderful art museums. You will also be an hour and forty minute train ride from New York City and the train is within walking distance from the house.
Milford Point is 5 miles away and one of the best birding sites on the east coast of North America.
Downtown Milford is the home of many boutique shops and very good restaurants. Milford is a colonial town, the historical society is just a short walk away, passing several 18th and 19th century houses along the way.
What makes my place unique is that it's between Boston and New York. It's a small city with great amenities close to New Haven, a center for great music, theater and art.
