Ocean View Cottage Delux


Property Details

Updated: Feb 24, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Newly added heat!!! Makes this available from May-October!!!! The best time time to stay, have the beach to yourself. Quiet, peaceful, my favorite time at the beach is offseason.

Create memories that will last a lifetime at this beautiful ocean view cottage that sleeps four. New carpeting and freshly painted charmer is just steps away from this private unspoiled beach paradise. This classic cottage has a barbecue area complete with picnic table as well as a comfortable screened in sitting porch ideal for morning coffee and sunset cocktails. Play croquet on the perfectly maintained side lawn or take a short walk over to Hartford Ave to enjoy shops and restaurants including authentic old world lemon ice and a full size merry-go-round. Take long beach walks on some of the most pristine coastal areas in all of Connecticut, including a state wildlife preserve. Don't forget to bring your bikes. There's little traffic on the streets and speed bumps are everywhere, as well as stop signs every 200 yards or so. This is a private gated community and provides a kid friendly environment. Two vehicle parking on property is also included, so start making memories this summer.

"This is the perfect place for vacationing at Old Colony Beach in Old Lyme- there are not many communities or beaches that are this charming, this safe, family oriented and just plain fun to vacation at!!

The cottage is lovely- the porch has a wonderful view of the beach and we enjoyed eating out there every evening!

We will be back- outstanding!!"

a little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

i come from many, many generations of Old Conony beach vacationers.. my family and i have been spending time there since before i can remember (and probably before my parents or grandparents can even remember).

last summer was our first summer staying in this particular cottage. What a find! It was fabulous. for starters, it was without a doubt, the cleanest rental cottage i have ever stepped foot into.

that aside- beautiful view of the water from the front porch, large, beautiful yard, very friendly and helpful landlord... and only a few steps to the beach. comfortable, clean and close to the beach... couldnt have asked for more.

will absolutely be back... over and over and over again.

thank you!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners were very helpful and availible to us. The area is very safe and family oriented. The location is the best, being right next to Hartford Ave. shops and carosel. The Pavillion on soundview beach features bands most week nights and movies are shown right on Colony beach under the stars. Taking a walk at night on the quiet and private beach was my favorite thing to do. Relaxing on the beach in the afternoon and then walking a few steps home to grill dinner was so convenient. If you don't feel like cooking there are many restaurants in the area for sea food and yummy pizzia take out/or eat in and Italian food at the end of the street.

This was a wonderful vacation for me and my son and our first time renting from the owners of 70 Colony Rd. I hope we can come back next summer!

Comfortable And Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed renting this cottage for over fifteen years. Each year our children, now in their twenties, would ask “When are we going back to the beach and the cottage”? They couldn’t wait to get down to the beach and when the vacation was over they didn’t want to leave.

The cottage is very comfortable and clean. It has a nice lawn and an enclosed porch that is great for reading, working on puzzles, a game of cards, playing on the electronic gadget of your choice, or just hanging out.

It is a short walk to a very nice comfortable beach. People are swimming, sitting, tanning, and schmoozing. On bright sunny days the view is post card perfect.

The entire area is very child/family/couple friendly. There are frequent speed bumps on the roads, a few people are on bicycles, and it is a very pleasant neighborhood for taking a nice relaxing walk.

It’s also a short walk, or an even shorter drive, to a few of life’s little beach necessities - pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers, some healthier fare, a general convenience store, and a beach shop with floats, suntan lotion, and ice cream etc. You’ll be back at the cottage or on the beach in no time.

We really like the cottage, the beach, and the area. It’s fun, clean, and friendly. We have had many enjoyable vacations here.

So you ask, what more could you want? Maybe another week or two of vacation!

Best of the best

My wif and I have two youg children and found this cottage about 4 years ago. We had rented different cottages for years before finding this great place. Now we only rent here. We take two weeks every summer, its clean,the fact that the whole community is private and gated is a very important to us because of the kids. Big porch, huge yard, steps to the sand, in a word perfect. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to rent at the shore.
