The Cozy Nest Cottages are a small group of vintage cottages located across the street from the Niantic River in East Lyme, Connecticut. The cottages are secluded, on a dead end street, and border the Oswegatchie Hills, one of the last stretches of pristine woods on the Connecticut coastline. There is no beach at this location, but there is a small boat launch that is great for kayaks and canoes.
Our location is quiet and private, yet convenient to I-95 and to the area's many attractions. East Lyme is a lively, vibrant area of the Connecticut shoreline with lots to do. Picturesque downtown Niantic, complete with shops, restaurants, movie theater, a children's museum and other seaside attractions, are just a few miles down the road. Beaches, parks, activities for kids, and cultural attractions abound. See our "Local Links" page for a sampling of the things to see and do in our area.
We have owned the cottages since 2004 and live on-site. We have been steadily remodeling and updating them. We rent the cottages mostly by the month, and some by the week. We book steadily through the summer months, and some cottages into the off-season.
These simple yet charming cottages offer a rare commodity: affordable long-term stays in Southeastern Connecticut.
