About This Listing
Our three bedroom, two bath home is just a two minute walk from private white sand Guthrie Beach! The home has upper and lower decks, with lovely water views from the upper deck. Spacious kitchen, dining room and game room with ping-pong table.
Available for the holidays! Please inquire for rates.
We are located just four houses in from the water- a two minute walk, with a lovely water view from the front yard. On the first floor, there is a large eat-in kitchen, a dining room that easily seats eight, living room, sun-room with table and chairs, and a full bathroom. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (all with queen beds) and a full bathroom. Additionally, upstairs, there is a den with 60 inch flat screen TV. This converts to a sleeping area for three (futon and single sofa bed). The den has sliding doors that open to an outside deck. Also, an upstairs sitting area can sleep one on a rollaway bed. In the back yard the house has a large deck with picnic table and charcoal grill. There is also an outside shower. We have converted the one-car garage to a game room with a ping-pong table, games, toys, books and a VCR with a wide selection of videos to keep the kids (and adults!) occupied on those rainy days. The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, paper supplies and even some sodas in the fridge to welcome you to the beach. The spacious kitchen has a dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, and gas range/oven. It is equipped with pots, pans, utensils and dishes. There is a microwave, blender, toaster and coffee maker. You can eat at the kitchen table or serve a larger group in the dining room, have an intimate meal in the sun room or enjoy a family picnic out on the back porch/deck. Smoking outdoors only, please. During the summer season, the house is available by the week only. Your stay begins Sunday at 3 pm and extends until the following Sunday at 11 am. During the rest of the year, it is available for rent by the weekend, week, month, or longer. You can park three cars in the driveway, with additional parking on the street. The neighborhood is safe and wonderful for walking, biking and running, with stately homes and trees.
Private Guthrie Beach is sandy and pleasant, only steps away and right on Long Island Sound. The beach is yours to enjoy while renting the house. It has restrooms and is attended in season for your comfort and security but there is no lifeguard on duty. There is a roped swimming area and sunning/diving platform. Bring your picnic lunch and enjoy the picnic tables. We provide beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. The house has plenty of beach towels and beach toys for the family!
Bring along your bike and take a ride or walk along the seawall about a half mile to Ocean Beach Park with its boardwalk, kids water park, rides, food and activities. Drive five minutes and hop on a Ferry to Block Island or Orient Point, Long Island. Mystic is only a ten to fifteen minute drive away and features Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium. A 20-30 minute car ride gets you to the three largest casinos in the world, Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Foxwoods, with entertainment and dining options too numerous to count. The family will love the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan! We are only two hours from Boston and 2 1/2 hours from New York City. Summer at the Connecticut shore is beautiful! One of the high points of summer in New London is Sailfest - a celebration of ships and the sea in early July, with its huge fireworks display over a harbor absolutely alive with colorful boats and visitors. Walk a few blocks, pick out your viewing spot and let others deal with the traffic. New London is an arts lovers haven with galleries, artist colonies, live music, theatre and performing arts.
Beautiful and private GUTHRIE BEACH!

Linens and towels (including beach towels) are provided, but must be laundered prior to checkout. Detergent is provided.
Absolutely wonderful house and host. Carolyn was very accommodating, the place was beautiful and well maintained making our stay feel like it was a home away from home. We weren't so lucky with the weather but still had a great stay in new London, walking distance to ocean beach.
I went down here for a weekend with some guys for a bachelor party to play some golf and go to the casino. Overall we were pleased with the home. We grilled in the back yard and ate on the porch and played some ping pong. Unfortunately we didn't use the fire pit, but it was stocked with firewood and kindling. Thanks!
Carolyn was such an amazing gracious host! We had a girls weekend and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay at. We were so close to the beach and everything about the neighborhood was just perfect.
Carolyn was exceptionally helpful and accommodating throughout the booking process and while we were at the house. The house is beautiful and exactly as described. It easily and comfortably sleeps 10 (and probably a few more I would expect). It is very homely and has all the expected amenities and much more such as beach chairs and games. We very much enjoyed the upper and lower outside decks and thoroughly loved having a fire in the garden! The private beach is literally about a 2 minute walk away around the corner...heaven! Thank you so much, we will definitely be staying again!
Carolyn's house was perfect for my group of 11 life-long college friends looking to spend a long weekend away from the city. The house was everything that was promised and then some!
The private beach a 2 minute walk away was phenomenal as it wasn't crowded at all like most beaches during Labor Day Weekend. We also realized that we were close to the ferry to Block Island so a few of us decided to take a day trip out there. While there aren't 100s of bars and restaurants in Downtown New London, there was still more than enough to do and we ended up having a great meal at one of the local restaurants, Gaspars, in town.
The house was very clean and had all of the amenities one could need. While we didn't have any children with us this is also a very family friendly house with plenty of toys to keep the little ones busy. Also, both TVs had HDMI inputs which made our group very happy when connecting modern video game consoles. Also, there were more than enough towels for all 11 of us!
We were also able to meet the Hoggs during check out and they were genuinely nice people.
I would feel very comfortable renting from them again!
This spot was very nice. Smallish backyard but exactly what we were looking for. Private beach literally a short walk away. Nice meighborhood and great food. Plenty of beds to accommodate everyone
This home was a great find for several members of my family and me as we traveled to Connecticut for our niece's wedding. Amazingly enough, the wedding was a 1/2 mile away.
We actually spent time on the beach the morning of the wedding and yes the day after too! The weather was tremendous. It was a wonderful weekend celebration with family.
I was so happy my brother and I met Carolyn in person and then I saw her again bike riding Sunday morning! :o)
Again, on behalf of all of my family, my thanks for having us and for being so helpful.
Denise, you are most welcome. I'm so happy that the home worked out well for you and your family and also that it was convenient to the wedding at Pequot Chapel. So nice meeting you and glad you had the chance to enjoy the beach and the beautiful weather. My thanks to you and your family for being wonderful guests!
