Quonochontaug cottage description
This adorable cottage was built in 1927. Walk to the 2 private beaches: one large, one larger.
Every new guest says the same thing: 'Wow. I had no idea how big it is.' Part of that is because of the cathedral ceilings, making every room spacious and breezy. Sit on the shady screened porch and watch the ocean waves a few hundred feet away. Play tennis, run, collect shells, swim, body surf, ride bikes; then walk to the Quonnie Pond at sunset.
The master BR has a queen bed and its own en suite 1/2 bath. The other two BRs have twin-beds in one, king in the other, and share a 1/2 bath. There is an indoor shower - but nothing beats the wonderful outdoor shower. Breakfast on the sunny deck. Easy living, all on one floor. Kitchen is fully equipped, incl. dishwasher, and the play/tv room has cable tv and Internet with wireless access - plus all the old-fashioned board games and jigsaw puzzles.
The Quonochontaug area of Charlestown has been a sought-after summer destination since the 1800s. There is golf nearby, good food at restaurants like The Wilcox Tavern and Shelter Harbor Inn, and - for those who want activity - there are boating and clamming, attractions like the Mystic Aquarium, Stonington Village, Point Judith, Narragansett, the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos, house-tours in Newport, and ferries and planes to Block Island.
The Central Beach association is known for its quiet and laid-back summer lifestyle. Beach towels on the line, lobsters in the pot, a steak on the grill: it doesn't get better than this.

Another Super Stay
Another Super Stay
My family had such a great experience renting this cottage a year ago that we rented again this year! The cottage has a cozy, summertime feel, yet large enough for the six of us, plus two babies and a dog to spread out. The kitchen is well equiped, the beds comfy, the deck is delightful to relax on or to enjoy a family dinner around the table. The cottage is a very short walk to the private beach. It is also such a wonderful area to walk. Tennis courts and a kids park are right around the corner. Couldn't ask for more.

Why the Owner Chose Quonochontaug:
My family bought the cottage 50 years ago because of the small, congenial collection of summer families. The ocean waves are delightful, and the private beaches are perfect. We enjoy it as much as we can every year - but also enjoy renting it out to folks who also appreciate it.
