About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, With Terrace On The Water

Truly a unique property with great privacy, beautiful views of Long Island Sound, Thimble Islands, and Pine Orchard harbor. The cottage was originally built around 1890, largely rebuilt in 1939 after the hurricane of '38, and its rustic charm is well maintained to this day. Beach on property and second beach just steps away. Suitable for one couple or a family of up to 4 (5 if one is an infant). Two floors: ground floor with kitchen, half bath, and living dining area opening onto stone terrace with sea wall abutting water; second floor with master bedroom overlooking sound, second bedroom with bunk beds, and full bath; second shower outdoors.

Kitchen equipped with stove, oven, microwave and full size refrigerator. Fireplace, internet, WiFi, and cable TV access. Window fans provided, but no heat or air conditioning.

In addition to the patio there are three lawn areas with chairs and a canoe, kayak, and swimming raft at the beach. Snowy egrets, great blue herons and kingfishers frequent the rocky point in front of the cottage.
