The Jewel of The Cove - Historic Coastal Retreat, Seaside Hideaway

3 BR
1.5 Baths
Sleeps 6


Welcome to The Jewel of The Cove, New Haven's hidden coastal gem.

Newly renovated seaside colonial home from 1924, celebrating New England in the 1920s. Nestled in the peaceful, historical neighborhood of Morris Cove, you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time to a classy and comfortable hideaway that Zelda Fitzgerald, Langston Hughes, or Yale Graduate Gerald Murphy might have enjoyed.

This is a scent-free property.

3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and high cleaning standards, this home is designed to provide guests with a unique home away from home. The commitment to detail throughout this home is evident in every room. High-end furnishings and modern amenities mix with whimsical decor showing New Haven's nautical, intellectual, cultural, epicurean, and adventurous history. Nods to Yale University, New Haven Apizza, The Jazz Age, Ships and Sailors, and nearby Tweed Airport abound. The black, white, and gold of Art Deco combine with soft pastels, lush fabrics, and pops of color to create a stunningly appointed space to call home for as long as you’re there.

Views of Long Island Sound from several windows. Seawall and sandy beaches are minutes away, walking or driving. Beach fun, relaxation, some of the best food in America, and exploration are at your doorstep.

Kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and all the amenities for meal preparation. The chic bar area in the dining room allows you to mix up cocktails while listening to a range of vinyl classics from the 1920s onwards on the record player.

Luxurious living room, dining room, and kitchen areas are bathed in natural light and charmingly decorated to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

The exterior matches its charming interior with a luxurious, fully fenced-in yard with a fire-pit table, loveseat, armchairs, ottomans, reclining lounge chairs, side tables/yard boxes, and lawn games.
