About the property

Beach Rental Cottage

Do you remember spending your childhood summers with your toes in the sand? Do you remember the quaint beadboard cottages that dotted the landscape? Do you want your children to have those same memories? Or do you just want to find a charming spot near the water and find some peace and tranquility in a cottage that is from an era which we will not see again. Return to the tranquility and carefree days of simpler times at our cottage by the Long Island Sound in Bay View, Ct. The cottage offers the conveniences which we have come to expect in our lives without losing the charm of long ago. This quaint cottage consists of three bedrooms (1-queen, 1-full, 1 with 3 twin beds), living room, dining room, kitchen, enclosed porch, and 1.5 baths. Although Bay View beach (which is private) is only 1/2 block away, there is easy access from the cottage to Rt. 95, Merritt Parkway, the Milford Train Station, and so much more. But truly, most days you will choose to make a cup of coffee when you wake, walk down to the beach and watch the sun rise. After spending the day relaxing at the private beach, take an invigorating outdoor shower, fire up the gas grill and have a backyard barbecue. End your day of bliss reading your favorite book on the front porch. And when it’s time to wash those beach towels, don’t worry about going to the laundromat. There is a washer and dryer right off the kitchen. If there is a day of rain – no worries there either! The cottage has high-speed wi-fi internet access, cable TV (with HBO), and plenty of board games for you and your kids. (And if that fails there are movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping nearby.)

Why Jane Scully Parshall chose Connecticut Shore

My husband grew up in this cottage spending his summers swimming and sailing on the Sound and enjoying this family friendly neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

This is one of the few cottages in Bay View with the authentic beadboard interior.

When you rent this cottage, you have access to Bay View Beach during your stay. Even though the beach is just a stone's throw away, you might want to go into the City to see a Broadway show. The proximity of the BEACH, the train station, RT. 95 and Merritt Parkway make Bay View in Milford, Ct. an ideal spot to vacation.

Stay was great. The cottage is well appointed with high end appliances and implements.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is well maintained and shows the care and consideration of the owners. The 3 bedrooms upstairs are comfortable and the air conditioning is great. The breeze downstairs makes it very comfortable. The items provided outside and inside are first rate. The cottage and the outside show the care of the owners and the supplies show their consideration for guests. My wife, three granddaughters and I had a wonderful time and thank the owners for providing such a clean, cozy and comfortable place for us.

Wonderful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage!!! It may not be right on the beach but, it only takes a short one minute walk down the street to get there. And you can see the beach from the front bedroom, the room with the three twin beds. The cottage is well stocked for your stay. There are plenty of restaurants in downtown Milford...our favorite was 7Seas. And of course, Scoopy Doos for an ice cream treat. Within a 10 minute drive you can find grocery stores, a mall, etc... for any of your needs. Jane is wonderful and she sure takes a lot of pride in her cottage. Yes, I would stay here again.

Homey Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here for a week in July. Well equipped and the special touches given by the owners made it extra special. It did remind me of beach houses I went to as a child. Loved the enclosed porch - perfect for watching a thunderstorm one afternoon, and made the downstairs bright and airy. Closeness to the beach which you have practically to yourself was terrific. Very rare to find a beach community that is not overcrowded and noisy, but still has plenty to do in the area. The beds and air conditioning in bedrooms were great. Beautiful backyard patio and loved the outdoor shower. I would recommend this highly.

This property was beautiful. You have everything available to move right in and enjoy your stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is very inviting and very clean. The hammock was comfortable and received plenty of use.

We were close enough to the beach for the grandchildren to be able to come back and forth with ease.

Everyone enjoyed their stay. We can't wait for next year.
