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 and front yard. Spacious kitchen, dining room and game room with ping-pong table.

The space

Available year-round!

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. We have converted the one-car garage to a game room with a ping-pong table, games, and toys. 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, your stay begins Sunday at 3 pm and extends until the following Sunday at 11 am. (Shorter stays are sometimes available during the summer season.) 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 full of stately homes and trees. It is wonderful for walking, biking and running.
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 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.

We had another fantastic stay at the house... Visiting for the second time and it was just as perfect as the first. And we actually met Carolyn and Randy this time too, which was lovely! The house itself is amazing, with plenty of space to comfortably sleep us all, a great kitchen for cooking, and brilliant outdoor spaces with the deck and gardens. We especially love the fire pit! And the beach. It's beautiful, with barely anyone else there, and a floating dock to go and play on! Thank you so much! We'll definitely be back

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!

The private beach is a few minutes walk from the house. I went with several toddlers and they had a great time. It's small but clean and definitely has a family/seniors vibe (not a party scene- if that's your thing). The home is in a quiet residential neighborhood which was perfect for us since we were several families staying there with children. The home was cozy with several smaller sized rooms to accommodate our party of 5 adults and several kids. There were pack n plays, games, toys and the kids had a great time. Also the kitchen had your basics- pots pans plates bowls utensils mugs - so if you wanted to whip up quick and easy meals - it's all there which was a plus! Carolyn made sure to have the ac running and lights on to welcome us, which was a nice touch. She was quick to respond to texts. Also awesome:) Please do be careful of the nails sticking up on the carpeted stairs. A few of us cut our feet and had to go to the doctor for a tetanus shot. I brought this to her attention so hopefully they'll be hammered down for future guests. Also I'd recommend bringing your own sheets, pillows and comforters as the ones in my room weren't very clean. I also brought this to her attention and she seemed a lovely host so hopefully all this will be addressed so future guests can have an awesome stay! All in all had an enjoyable few days away with friends and family.

Response from Carolyn:
This review is not factually accurate. I am glad to see that this guest had an enjoyable stay. However, I must disagree with some of the facts stated. First, she most certainly did not report any nails sticking up on the carpet or tetanus shots needed! This is the first I am hearing of any of this and I frankly am shocked. We have provided clean linens and towels to our guests for over ten years without complaints. Guests are free to bring their own if they choose or use ours. I can only conclude that this guest was unhappy because I questioned whether she had an animal in the house after I found a strong urine smell on a bath mat.

The house is excellent. It's located very close to the beach. Carolyn was very accommodating by allowing us to check in early and leave late. The house was clean with clean bathrooms, clean floors, clean kitchen and other living areas. There is an excellent collection of board games, that will keep kids and grown-ups equally engaged. Carolyn was very helpful and provide suggestions on things to do/see. If there's one thing that I wish were different was the furniture were pretty dander free. I would stay again in future if need arises.
