This newly renovated, historic 1 BR/1 Bath former school house, is located directly on the Mystic River with amazing views of the Drawbridge. It started life as a one room school house. It was moved in 1857 to its current location, as an extension to the main house, which is also available. This cottage sleeps 4 comfortably. There is an abundance of outside space to BBQ, enjoy morning coffee, or have a glass wine while you enjoy watching the activity on the river

The space
Sure, we're biased. But this cottage has the best of both worlds: sunlit indoor rooms, meticulously restored and furnished to embrace its history as a school house, plus outdoor space for entertaining, reading, or just lying around. There are great views of the Mystic River. The cottage, a restored, historic school house, also has a fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer. There is WI-FI, TV with Amazon Plus so you can stream your favorite movies and shows. The family and dining areas are spacious and cozy. We are located on the river, across from the Seaport and very near the famous drawbridge.

Guest Access:
Guests have access to the entire cottage. Guests also have access to a great outside garden area with umbrellas, tables, chairs, BBQ grill, and amazing River views. We also have bikes and Kayaks that are available to guests as well. The cottage is behind the main house, which is also available. It is, however, completely separate with its own full kitchen, washer dryer, and entrance. There is also ample parking.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cottage, and the BBQ grill and outside furniture located in back yard.

Other things to note
This is a renovated historic cottage. There are some areas where ceiling height is low. Also, to adjust temperature (heating and cooling), go by “how you feel,” not what the thermostat setting is.

Groton, Connecticut, United States

Our location is incredibly well-suited to the quintessential Mystic experience. We are on the Mystic River and quite kayak friendly. The cottage is very near the drawbridge and a very short stroll to downtown. The famed Mystic Seaport area is about 0.5 mile away and clearly visible from the cottage. Then there's the aquarium, the diner, and a handful of lesser known things to see, do, eat, and drink. We share detailed recommendations and favorite picks with guests upon booking
