A quaint cottage in a forest setting on 6 acres bordering Harkness Memorial State Park. A peaceful & serene setting where you can hear nature by day and the lighthouse sound signal at night. The cottage is fully equipped & very comfortable for your stay. The Waterford beach is a short drive away...less than 2 miles through the forest...as are beautiful hikes along the coast. Centrally located near Historic Mystic, Niantic, Connecticut College, US Coast Guard Academy & the US Naval Base.

The space
Single story cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped for your use...including a fridge, oven, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher etc. We will leave you some of the basics to get your stay started, like coffee (extremely essential) and maybe fresh fruit and or pastries to get your first morning off to a good start, and even some wine. The family room is so welcoming, with a large sofa, entertainment center with DISH cable, and french doors looking out into the garden and forest. Speaking of forest, we have our own personal trail leading through the back acreage of our property to leads out to Harkness State Park. It is a beautiful and picturesque personal and private trail for you to enjoy.
The surrounding area offers sailing, cycling, parks, and access to historic sites (Mystic Seaport, Harkness Park, Fort Trumbull, Fort Griswold, Ocean Beach, etc.). Minutes from Connecticut College, the Coast Guard Academy and Mitchell College; one hour from Yale and Brown University. Ferry service to Block Island, Fishers Island and Long Island is within a few miles, as is rail service. Just 10 minutes from I-95, it's ideally located between Hartford, Providence, New Haven, New York and Boston, with an international airport only one hour away.
We offer 15% discount to active duty military (in lieu of the normal weekly discount) for bookings up to seven days in length. Contact us ahead of time prior to booking so we can make arrangements.

Guest access
You will have access to the entire cottage, with the exception of the gardening annex for us to maintain the grounds, and is only accessible to the hosts from the outside. Otherwise, we will get you keys to the cottage and the rest is yours to enjoy.

Other things to note
The cottage is stand alone, but co-located on our 6 acre property with our main home...so we are never far away if you need anything. While the property feels tucked away and remote, all the amenities you need like grocery stores are within a couple miles. We have emergency backup power for you in the case of any power loss situation.
Only accessible from the outside, the cottage has a yard maintenance annex where we keep equipment to maintain the premises; this is not accessible to our guests, but wanted you to be aware of it.

Quiet dead end road, the cottage is tucked away on a long driveway far from the street. We are optimally located near such wonderful places as Mystic, Stonington Borough, Niantic, and Essex. The United States Coast Guard Academy and Connecticut college are only 6 miles away. And Foxwoods and Mohegan sun casino resorts are also less than 20 miles away!
