Housed in a 100-year-old building nestled between the Victorian houses in New Haven's historic City Point neighborhood, once the center of New England's oyster trade, our cottage is a two-block walk from the marina (and its award-winning restaurant), a 10 minute-drive from the West Haven beaches and a few minutes' drive to Yale.

The space
A one-bedroom with a loft, our cottage was built using largely salvaged, recycled and repurposed materials like reclaimed wood, a 60s Geneva steel kitchen cabinet and an old telephone company ladder. It also features modern conveniences like wifi, a 40-inch chef's stove, large-screen TV, and smarthome system. The bedroom has a king-sized bed; the cozy sleep loft above features a skylight and queen-sized mattress.

Guest access
The cottage is a detached building on the back end of our property. You'll share a driveway and yard with the house, but the cottage and its patios are entirely your own.

Other things to note
The cottage is fairly new, so we are still adding to it, improving it and discovering its quirks (we add different pictures as we add amenities). We welcome feedback that helps us make it even more comfortable.

The historic, close-knit neighborhood of City Point is also known as Oyster Point: Back in the day, it was a major hub of New England's oyster trade. Today, grand Victorians still line Howard Avenue, but the marina is instead home to one of New Haven's best restaurants, Shell & Bones, and a cute little diner, City Point Kitchen, for breakfast & lunch.

During your stay
We like to give guests their privacy, but also like to know who's coming. (This is our home, after all.) So when you put in a booking request, please give us your name, a little about what brings you and who's coming with. Then once you're here, we'll stay out of your hair, unless you ask for restaurant recommendations or the low-down on the nearest grocery stores. (Then we're just a text or door knock away.)
