Sunset and sunrise on Long Island Sound are tranquil times of day

at this private, community-owned beach vacation resort.

Rocky areas are good for exploring and fishing, while sand bars are the perfect place for castle making and skim boarding. Rock jetties provide hours
of crabbing fun for
the kids.

SUN, SAND, SALT WATER. All the Basics.


Coburn’s Cottages offers three different Connecticut beach vacation rental properties in Old Lyme, Connecticut that feature access to the many amenities of the White Sand Beach Community including two lifeguarded beach areas with boat lanes, a Summer Recreation Program, tennis courts, a baseball field, basketball court, playground and even a community center which can be reserved for large events.

A short walk along the shore to the west of White Sand Beach lies the Griswold Point Reserve, a tern nesting area and preserve located along the mouth of the Connecticut River. To the east is Howard Beach, where our beachside cottages enjoy the use of private beaches on the Connecticut shores of Long Island Sound.

Across the Sound, just seven miles away you’ll see the sweeping panorama of Long Island.
