About the property

Pristine 3 br house one block from the main beach, lagoon, marina and cafe

Beautiful cottage located in a private beach association just minutes from downtown Mystic CT. Sited in the heart of Groton Long Point, just one block from one of three gorgeous, beaches, and the harbor/casino/yacht club where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, dinner and old-fashioned ice cream bar. Our home boasts one of the largest yards in the neighborhood, serving as a welcome shaded retreat after enjoying the picturesque, sunny beaches of GLP.

Our home sleeps up to six people with two bedrooms on the main floor and one large second-floor bed/recreation room. We offer one queen bed, and one twin bed on the main floor. The upper-level bedroom offers up to three twin beds in addition to a television, play station, games - plus plenty of room for fun. Each guest will be welcomed to our home with freshly laundered linens, bedding, and towels and a variety of toiletries.

The house has a wonderful screened in front porch that is a perfect spot for morning breakfast, lunches and evening cocktails as you watch your children play frisbee, wiffle ball, bocce in the yard.

Without a doubt, this cottage has one of the best lots on the Point. It is set back on a large grass corner lot just one block from the main beach. It is the perfect space to host family picnics and allow the children to run and play after a day at the beach.

The association of Groton Long Point is a friendly community of home owners from areas throughout the region. Take a stroll one block down the street to the Point Spa Shop for that morning cup of coffee, lunch or dinner and ice cream bar (seasonal).

The Groton Long Point Yacht Club hosts a number of wonderful events for adults including themed cocktail parties and parents nights out. Children can bike to swimming lessons, sailing lessons, or tennis lessons and/or spend their days crabbing and fishing off one of the many Groton Long Point docks.

Throughout summer, families are welcome to sign up for sailing, swimming, arts and crafts and many other evening events including dances, game nights and movie nights organized by the experienced Yacht Club staff.

Make certain to bring your bikes, as children safely ride through the community at all hours to the community playground, gaga pit, volleyball courts, basketball courts and sports fields all within walking distance.

Address: 60 Sound Breeze Avenue, Groton Long Point, CT just 10-15 minutes from Connecticut College, US Coast Guard Academy, Mitchell College and UConn Avery Point. 20 minutes to Foxwoods and/or Mohegun Sun casinos and minutes from lovely downtown Mystic.

Please, absolutely No smoking and No pets.

Why Derek Pisani chose Groton Long Point

If you crave the beach life, the smell of salt air, misty mornings, diving of the docks and fishing from the beach, then you will find your way to Crabbin Country just as we did. Come make it your own.

What makes this house unique

Crabbin Country sits on a sun filled corner lot which offers lots of room for yard games, picnics, barbecue and hammock time after a fun day of marine activities. Sit on the porch and dine al fresco or sit back in the lawn furniture and recharge for an evening bike ride throughout the point.

Cute Clean Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Although not on the water, this little house has a great location on GLP. You can easily walk to the Casino and Main Beach, and you have easy access to both shores of GLP. The property is clean and well-outfitted, and it was a nice touch to have it so cheerfully lit for us when we arrived late at night. The owners were responsive with our questions, and followed up to make sure we had what we needed. It's nice to have a screened porch to sit outside, and the house is on a huge lot if you want to have your kids run around. Overall, great stay!

Quaint cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for a kids' vacation--we had such a great experience we've talked about making it an annual event. While the cottage itself is small, the location more than makes up for it--large yard with a lovely sitting area, and great walking location with a playground, small restaurant (ice cream and night and donuts in the morning), beach, and tide pools a few minutes stroll away. Close to Mystic for day trips as well. The owners were responsive and accommodating, and we found the property well stocked.

A Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to get away for a long weekend and found GLP and this lovely beach home. The hosts are extremely helpful and communicative. Their beach house was beautifully updated, pristine and comfortable. We had everything we needed. Our 2 children ages 7 and 10 were in love with the 2nd floor room and had a blast playing up there and on the lawn. The community was beautiful and people were friendly and helpful. The beaches are great and within easy walking or bike riding distance. The Casino was convenient and we were there every morning for coffee and the homemade donuts on Saturday were delicious.

The Gaga court, playground, walking trail, basketball court, lax nets and easy travel to Mystic were frosting on the cake.

We had a great time and can't wait to go back.

60 Sound Breeze Avenue, Groton Long Point, CT

Groton Long Point (GLP) is a secluded little beach haven where children can safely bike ride, crab, and swim in the Long Island Sound at three private beaches within walking distance. The area boasts dozens of summer vacation attractions and is 20 minutes from Rhode Island's beaches and parks. A variety of festive events are scheduled throughout the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter in GLP, nearby Mystic, Niantic, Stonington Harbor, Noank and the many surrounding oceanfront towns. Take a step back in time to the days of our nautical ancestors by visiting nearby Mystic Seaport followed by a walking tour through Stonington Borough. Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casino are within minutes of house, featuring a variety of concerts and world class restaurants. Within ten minutes you will find dozens of seafood restaurants, oyster bars and local fair. The rocky shores of the area are a sight for the eyes and world class fishing charters are available at the many local marinas. However, be warned that once you pull into the driveway you may never wish to go farther than the ice cream shop and deli right around the corner at the beach. The town of Groton Long Point is truly special and has all the amenities you need, yet it has kept its historic roots in a way that makes every day special.
