    Elegant AND Relaxing Beach Getaway, Steps From THE Water

    Historic vacation home in New London
    Welcome to our charming, art-filled four-bedroom home in Lower New London close to the beach. This 1930 Dutch Colonial is uniquely situated within walking distance of three bodies of water: we are 200 yards from Alewife Cove, which flows out to the sea and can be explored with a kayak; two and a half blocks from the Thames River, where you can stroll along the shore and to the lighthouse dated 1761 (the first built on Long Island Sound); and four blocks from the immensely popular Ocean Beach Park, with its marvelous white-sand beach, boardwalk, waterslide, Olympic-size swimming pool, amusement park rides, diner/gift shop, miniature golf, nightly concerts, and arcade. Or walk to the neighborhood grocery store or colorful local hangout, the Egg Yolk Café. This vintage home is loaded with original molding and hardwood floors throughout. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, half bath, and sunroom/office for those who may still need to work while away. There is also a recently tuned piano and stereo. Upstairs is a full bath and four bedrooms (one queen, one full, and two twins). Although it does not have central air conditioning, it has AC units in three of the bedrooms and wonderful ocean breezes. The house sleeps six and is fully equipped with linens, towels, pots and pans, utensils, and dishes as well as a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, high chair, and gas range. There is a WiFi-enabled Smart TV, as well as numerous novels and children’s books, board games, beach towels/chairs/toys, and a cooler. There is a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board in the basement. The back garden is set up with wicker furniture and a Weber barbecue. A parking pass for Ocean Beach Park is included with the rental. Note: After each guest's visit, our home is thoroughly restocked, cleaned, and sanitized by a professional cleaning service. Welcome to the Dutch House! AREA ATTRACTIONS Downtown New London is a short five-minute drive away, where you can dine in an eclectic variety of restaurants, or visit art galleries, live music, theater, and performing arts productions. Or take a Ferry to Block Island, Fisher’s Island, or Orient Point on Long Island. New London is home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College, and the Coast Guard Academy. The beautiful Harkness Memorial State Park is walking distance or a five-minute drive from the house, as well as the Eugene O’Neill Theatre with its famed summer stock performances. Mystic, with its renowned Seaport and Aquarium, is fifteen minutes away, while the Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand, and Foxwoods—with their casinos, shows, and hotels--are just a half hour drive. New London is located about 2-1/2 hours from New York and Boston by car. You can also visit Newport, Rhode Island, to tour its grand old mansions. In addition, the Amtrak and Shore Line East train station is just five minutes away in downtown New London, as well as the Greyhound Bus station and major ferry station.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer hair dryers and irons/ironing boards. Guests can make use of the in-room refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee/tea makers.

      Beach Getwaway

      Lovely house, walking distance from the beach. Backyard with grill for a relaxing social distancing hangout.

      5/5 Excellent

        Lovely stay!

        My friends and I stayed here for the week and couldn’t have asked for a better home to spend time together. A few minutes from the beach, a wonderful area. Highly recommend!!

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely & Accessible

          Great, well designed home close to beach and other local attractions. Nicely appointed and cozy.

          5/5 Excellent

            Comfortable rental

            The house was uncluttered, tastefully decorated and well supplied. The beds were great. The host was very responsive. It was great to have the drive in pass to Ocean Beach Park. The swimming pool and waterslides there, however, are extra money per person. Harkness State Park is beautiful for picnicking , but no swimming is allowed. For a day at the beach Waterford beach is the best, but it’s expensive on the weekends.

            5/5 Excellent

              End of Summer Getaway

              The house was a good size, close enough to the beach. The beach pass for the car was a big plus. Our overall experience was enjoyable. The house was stocked with everything you may need. The owner checked in to make sure our stay was going smoothly.
