Tiverton cottage description

Charming cottage in a spectacular location on Fogland Point. Large wraparound deck faces the Sakonnet River and features a gorgeous panoramic view. We particularly enjoy cocktails on the deck at sunset. The sunsets on Fogland Point are unusually gorgeous. The front yard leads to private rocky beach great for swimming, fishing, kayaking, shell collecting and hanging out with your kids while they explore the water's edge. Located a short 5 minute walk from the town swimming beach (lifeguard on duty seasonally), boat launch, playground and one of the best windsurfing locations in New England. Rental equipment and private lessons are available on the beach.

This two bedroom cottage has a queen sized bed in the master bedroom, a set of bunk beds and a single bed in the second bedroom, and a futon couch in the closed-in porch (where you can hear the sound of the water at night). Bring your own linens and food -- we provide the rest.


The house is equipped with wireless internet, digital cable television, DVD/VHS player and an ipod/CD player. Though the kitchen is small, it is fully equipped with microwave, food processor, espresso machine, blender, mixer, baking pans, etc. A front-loading stackable washer/dryer is located in the bathroom. The house is very kid-friendly and comes with beach toys, books, a few videos and a lot of games for family evenings or the occasional rainy day. The closed-in porch, complete with lobster lights, is great for enjoying sunsets and quiet evenings with the sounds of waves lapping on the rocky beach below.

The cottage is located less than 10 minutes from Gray's Ice Cream, frequently rated best ice cream in RI. Besides Gray's there are other businesses worth exploring in historic Tiverton Four Corners, including several antique shops and galleries, a toy store, gift and home decor shops, designer clothing shops, cheese and pate' shop, bookstore, library, restaurants and more. Tour Sakonnet Vineyards, only 10 minutes away. Downtown Newport, with its mansions, sailing, restaurants, shopping, and jazz festival is only 30 minutes away.

Great food abounds at local restaurants, fresh seafood markets, and country stands in both Tiverton and neighboring Little Compton. Local restaurants feature great home cooking and seafood specialties, like seafood chowder, lobster rolls, fried clams, clam cakes and homemade pies.

Windsurfing: The cottage is located a short 5 minute walk from one of the best windsurfing locations in New England. Rental equipment and private lessons are available on the beach. According to a popular windsurfing website, 'Fogland point is one of the most popular spots in the state. It is one of the windiest sites not on Cape Cod. There is a sheltered shallow cove area on the north side of the point (you can walk across except at high tide), and slightly more open sailing on the south side. Great area for all skills of sailors. Also the beach is nice, too, and not too busy. Pebbly / sandy beach, not very big waves. I have counted as many as forty sailors on the water on a breezy summer weekend afternoon. One of the most beautiful and scenic sailing sites also. There's a saltwater marsh, and some tidal pools with lots of sea life. Popular kite-boarding spot, especially for first-timers.'

                      Why the Owner Chose Tiverton:
                      Our family has been vacationing here on Fogland Point since 1984. My wife and I spend 2-3 weeks here every summer and our twin daughters, now age 13, describe it as their favorite place in the whole world. Fogland Point, with it's dozen small cottages, private dirt road, and spectacular views in every direction is a treasure.
