Charlestown house description

Now renting for Summer 2015. Only three high summer weeks remain available so reserve now. 'Quitan' is available for Saturday to Saturday weekly rentals only for a maximum of six guests.
“Quitan” is a waterfront private home located on a four-acre compound with direct frontage and a private dock on Ninigret Pond. Built in 1874, this house was the original Nye farmhouse for the property that now encompasses the Tockwotten Cove and Pond Shore summer communities. The house has remained in the same family for the past hundred years and is offered selectively for short-term summer rental.

The first floor of the house consists of a large living room, formal dining room, kitchen with waterfront deck, sunroom with a fireplace, screened porch and bath. On the second floor are three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has the bath en-suite as well as a large, private sundeck. All rooms have unobstructed views of Ninigret Pond, the barrier beach and the Atlantic Ocean with Block Island beyond.

Because the house has been maintained by one family as its summer residence for many years, its charm, amenities and decoration are much more than a step above the typical summer rental. The home is furnished in an eclectic and comfortable style with a combination of antiques, wicker, art and artifacts that will delight and interest you. While all modern amenities are provided, this special house maintains the feel of simple, gracious living that characterized the summer colonies of an earlier time. The grounds of Quitan include extensive perennial gardens, roses and flowering shrubs surrounding the house and the broad, well-maintained lawns.

Your private dock provides easy access to Ninigret Pond, East Beach and the Breachway where water-based activities such as clamming, fishing, swimming and water skiing abound. A pass for unlimited beach access and free parking is also provided with the rental. The convenient location of the house and of Charlestown provide easy access to the area’s many fine restaurants, Newport attractions, Block Island, Mystic Seaport and the Foxwood and Mohegan Sun casinos.

At Quitan, we allow a maximum of six overnight guests including children. All overnight members of the rental party must be named in the rental agreement. Parties and pets are not allowed on the premises and smoking is allowed only outdoors.

A local management company will coordinate your arrival and departure and is available during your stay to handle any questions or repairs at the property. The house has been cleaned prior to your arrival and should be left in like condition. A cleaning fee of $125 is added to each rental and is due with your final payment.

Per local custom, guests provide their own bed linens and towels. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has a pair of twin beds and the third bedroom has a double bed. Blankets, pillows and all household items necessary for a comfortable stay are provided.

OTHER AMENITIES PROVIDED INCLUDE:
* Beach Pass for Charlestown Beach and Blue Shutters/East Beach
* Gas Grille
* Wireless Internet
* TV/VCR/DVD
* Stereo/CD
* Washer and Dryer
