Charlestown house description
This 5 bedroom home is in the quiet private community of Shady Harbor located near the shore of beautiful Quonochontaug Salt Pond. Within 200 yards of the water, our home has a sunny view from the deck and many amenities. The fun of the salt pond is a short walk away for children and our access at Weekapaug Fire District onto pristine and secluded Quonochontuag Beach is a 5 minute drive away.
The area has been recognized nationally as a great getaway destination and there is something for everyone within a short distance. Golf, nature preserves and parks, the mansions of Newport, the carousel at Watch Hill and the aquarium at Mystic are available for those days that you choose to leave the sun and surf. The house is a raised Cape with 5 bedrooms that comfortably sleep 8 people. The spacious deck is a great place to share meals or to entertain friends.
Our kitchen is modernized and the design of the house gives adults and children enough space to feel relaxed. For those who enjoy the water life, the clamming, fishing and swimming in the pond and ocean here are exceptional. Only 2 hours from either Boston or New York, the nearby town of Westerly has a vibrant arts community, a great library and restaurants serving good food without big city hassle. For those craving the city life, the many sights and sounds of Providence are a 45 minute drive away for those one or two rainy days of summer. We're sure that once you visit, you'll be looking forward to revisiting 'Quonny' and Shady Harbor for years to come!

Great place to stay
Great place to stay
This house is cute, comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen. We find it affordable to stay at and have a good time in the Charlestown area going to Newport as well. Downside: The downstairs (basement) bathroom is chilly in the spring or fall to try and take a shower comfortably but we (five women) managed with the one shower in the main level. Second floor bathroom is a 1/2 bath status that works well for the guests on that level. The owner is attentive to our requests when we visit.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.
Having spent 20 summers in this house with five growing children, I can attest to a great floor plan (3 bdrms and 1 bth up, 2 bedrms 1 bth down) for separation of children and adults; the lowest level has great space for children's music and congregating...so parents can have a real life, while teens are also enjoying socializing. The natural life and beauty of the area can't be surpassed.
