Waterfront lodging in Connecticut places you close to the sea

waterfrontlodgings New England’s coastal areas attract vacationers from all over the world, so it makes sense that waterfront hotels, resorts, including beach and ocean resorts, are prepared to highlight the best of the coast. CT waterfront lodgings on the beach offer sand and water views, and many help guests obtain beach passes and water sports equipment like kayaks. The beach and waterfront are a big favorite for kids and families, of course, and plenty of lodgings are ready to accommodate families of multiple generations. These lodgings also are usually just steps away from great dining, shopping, beach and trail walks, and wonderful views.

Guests can book a sail aboard the schooner Argia, which sails from Steamboat Wharf daily. They can also walk right outside the door into the heart of a seafaring village with a picturesque drawbridge, great restaurants and shops.
