Acquired in the 1930s from our Sicilian grandparents, our property is a salt marsh waterfront and has retained its original unique character. We are a shabby beach chic 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 6 comfortably) just down the street from three private beaches on the Long Island Sound. Great Hammock Beach is quiet and quaint in a tidal basin creating sandbars perfect for walking at low tide just off the dock! Enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, kiting, fishing, and viewing wildlife in our protected and preserved surroundings. Perfect for the outdoors type as we have no heat (except for space heaters). There is a large outdoor shower only which is open to the sky and perfect for star-gazing in the steam! Beautiful sunrises to the east of the marsh and breathtaking sunsets to the west over the Sound will make your stay magical and memorable forever!

Charming beach cottage is comfortable and quaint surrounded by the salt marsh and Long Island Sound, thus called Great Hammock Beach. Awesome natural habitat for fishing, kiting, kayaking, paddle boarding, and communing with wildlife. Guests must bring own linens and paper goods. There is no indoor shower, however, our large outdoor shower is privately enclosed and makes for a unique bathing experience open to the sky and billions of stars! While there are a few blankets inside the house, please note there is no heat except for a couple space heaters. Perfect for the outdoors lover! Also, the owners live on the property at the small rear cottage at all times.

Saltmarsh Beach Cottage
Don’t Miss Salt Marsh Cottage
Our host was welcoming but not intrusive. She offers guided tours of the marshes…not to be missed Cottage isa few hundred feet from a dune beach where parasailers hangout. The sunset view from that beach is amazing. Reserve early for this early 20th century beach cottage.
