Recently renovated! A quaint cottage in a forest setting on 6 acres bordering Harkness 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, Conn College, US Coast Guard Academy & the US Naval Base.

The space
RECENTLY RENOVATED! Including the kitchen, appliances, bathroom, furniture, paint, windows and more! 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.
