After booking the Chapman cottage for my wedding party just a short time before the wedding Ashley sends me a message that it is no longer available. However, she offers another cottage - The Bay Cottage in Niantic which is & that was wonderful. Very clean, enough space, easy to find and check in. Ashley was very responsive to messages and helpful through the situation that was very much beyond her control. So, though vrbo's stay info didn't update and this info won't go to the right property, I highly recommend The Bay Cottage in Niantic.

Amazing, quaint, escape at the beach!!
Ashley was wonderful. Permitted an early check-in, and was super available to answer questions. Beach house was perfect for us and the fire pit and outdoor space was great. Cooking items, pots, pans, limited (but just right) amount of spices, and olive oil to cook. The only suggestion I would make, is to shift to non-chemical cleaners and cleaning agents, laundry detergent, etc. with HEAVY perfumes. Aside from the need, to air the place out and let the linens and towels breathe, the place is just perfect. I highly recommend this space to anyone seeking a quaint, sweet, beach escape. It is one of the few cottages, that offer some bit of privacy with their fencing as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We will definitely be back🌈🌈

A real treat:)
The cottage was a holiday gift. While visiting my family in the town where I grew up, we were able to begin and end our days in the warmth and comfort of a beautiful cottage taken care of with clear love and pride. Sitting by the fireside and unwinding after full days with family was more than we could have hoped for. And our hosts were so thoughtful and provided everything we could have possibly needed! I cannot wait to return in the Spring and/or Summer!

We had a great time in Westbrook. The home is centrally located to everything. The beach was a short walk down the road.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The cottage was very clean, cozy, sunny and well appointed with plenty of soft linens, kitchen necessities, simple furniture, etc. It was quiet (later winter) and very peaceful. Heat, hot water, etc all worked well. Check in instructions were clear and easy. Ashley was extremely responsive and helpful!

Not great for a fall/winter stay
The home is probably great for summer use, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a fall or winter. The heat was off when we arrived, so the home was very cold. It took several hours to heat up and when it did the temperature was difficult to adjust to a comfortable level. The home has old electric baseboard heat, so it’s either to hot or cold.

Lovely Cottage
It was a short walk down the beach and everyone was friendly and helpful. The cottage was clean and not overly cluttered. We wish there more hooks in the only bathroom for towels and maybe and outside line for drying beach towels/suits. A hose to spray off sand from feet would have been nice too. We simply used the faucet over the mulch to get the majority on the side of the house. Just be aware of the mosquitos. They attacked the second we got out of the car and seem to live at the back door luckily the back room has a door closing it off so we could trap those that got in from eating us overnight.
