Guilford, Connecticut
We love our cottage and you will too! "Seacliff," a classic turn of the century cedar shingled beach cottage, is located in the quiet Guilford, CT community of Mulberry Point. Direct water access for swimming, beachcombing, kayaking and fishing plus family-friendly association beach within a minute's walk. Each evening, enjoy spectacular sunsets from our screened-in wrap-around porch, the favored spot for meals, cocktails, or relaxing with a book. The living room, with ceiling fan, brick fireplace and ample comfortable seating, has six-foot windows that open onto the Sound. Stepping outside affords additional waterfront and garden front (our neighbor is a fantastic gardener!) seating. Walk a few steps out the door for delicious waterfront sunrises. NEW BATHROOM with tiled shower (so new we don't have photos yet)!

The previous reviews are all pretty spot on. This is an incredibly charming, wonderful property that makes you feel like you're inhabiting a Wes Anderson movie. The location couldn't be more perfect. It was clean, comfortable and beautiful. We loved it and hope to return.

Management response:

Thanks, Becky! So glad you enjoyed it, despite the so-so weather!

If you are looking for an almost indescribably beautiful setting and a rustic, relaxing location, Seacliff is it. The view from the front screen porch and terrace is nothing short of spectacular. It is far enough away from town to be truly an escape, yet 5 minutes by car brings you to all kinds of interesting 'stuff.' The cottage itself...

Management response:

Belated thanks, Pat! It's been our pleasure to host you and your friends and family for 3 years in a row!

About the neighborhood
Our cottage is located at the tip of a rocky peninsula in the beach community of Mulberry Point, just 3 miles from the center of the classic New England town of Guilford, CT. There's something for everyone in Guilford--beaches, a vast system of hiking and biking trails, seasonal berry and apple picking, fun boutiques, terrific restaurants for all tastes, the largest town Green in New England, and historic houses and museums. Only 20 minutes from New Haven, the home of Yale University.
