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 Milford

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.

Wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family had a relaxing week in Milford in Jane and Ed's house. The house was very clean and well equipped and the location near the beach was fantastic. We spent lots of happy hours on the patio having BBQs and in the garden on the hammock. The bedrooms were very comfortable and our little girl especially enjoyed having the large bedroom with three beds and a view to the beach all to herself! Jane was at the house to greet us on our arrival which was a nice touch. She has some food in the fridge to get us started so that was much appreciated. Highlight of the trip was our trips to Scoopy Doos in Milford for ice creams. Thanks Jane!

Very quiet, relaxing beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 7 and love this cottage. It's comfortable for all of us, with enough room for us to spread out into the dining area, living room, porch area and back patio. We love taking our morning coffee down to the beach for a walk by the water, collecting shells. Very relaxing. Love the Milford restaurants too

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.
