Lovely, quiet 3 bedroom (sleeps 6) 1930’s home in family neighborhood; wood floors, working fireplace, washer/dryer on first floor, with lots of original detail throughout. Our house is a side-by-side two family. We live in one side and rent out the other nightly (3 night minimum) and weekly year-round. Located two blocks from the Thames River where you can stroll along the waterfront watching the ferries, sailboats, commercial fishing vessels and an occasional submarine; five minutes to Ocean Beach Park where there is a boardwalk, kids waterslide, Olympic size swimming pool, kiddie rides, gift shop, nature area, miniature golf, concerts and an arcade. The first floor includes the living room, dining room and updated kitchen plus a laundry/mud room making it easy to bring in your beach towels and blankets. In addition, there is a small, windowed front porch area that is perfect for quiet reading or for those vacationers who still need to check in with work via the internet, the house is equipped with WiFi. Upstairs is the bathroom and three bedrooms (one full bed, one with two twins and one queen); the queen bedroom also has a small sitting area for quiet relaxation with a good book. The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, paper supplies, pots, pans, utensils, dishes as well as a coffee maker, blender, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher and gas range. The quiet, partially fenced backyard has outdoor furniture and a charcoal grill as well as lounge chairs for relaxing in the sun and watching the night sky. Drive five minutes to downtown and hop on a Ferry to Block Island, Fisher’s Island or Orient Point on Long Island. Mystic, only a fifteen minute drive away, has the renowned Seaport and Aquarium. A half hour away gets you to any of three of the largest casinos in the country – Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Fox woods. Downtown New London itself is an art lovers haven with galleries, live music, theater and performing arts. New London is also home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College and the Coast Guard Academy; while the Naval Submarine Base is located across the River in Groton. At nearby Harkness Park you can see name performers during the open air Summer Music Festival and there is live theater at the Eugene O’Neill Theater, both of which are located about ten minutes away. New London is located 2-1/2 hours from both New York and Boston and about an hour away from famed Newport, Rhode Island where you can tour the grand old mansions of the Gilded Age. In addition to WiFi, there is cable TV, a DVD/VCR player, lots of movies to choose from as well as a sound system and very eclectic music selection. We provide beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and coolers. It’s like being home away from home.
