Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have been vacationing at Old Lyme Shores Beach for 23 years and have stayed at many cottages. This home was great as it had air-conditioning on those very hot July days and the home was clean and bright ! We loved the enclosed outdoor shower but you needed to be careful walking to it as I twisted my ankle on a hole on the pathway. The close proximity to the beach was perfect! We would recommend the cottage to anyone!
