Located on Ninigret Pond, Charlestown in the exclusive Arnolda Colony, this waterfront house is a classic shingled cape with a spectacular post and beam cathedral living room. The house is well appointed and filled with antiques. The views from the screened in porch off the living room are stunning! Enjoy a fire in the a soapstone wood burning stove, stroll in the gardens or relax and enjoy the wide screen TV. You have use of the dock so you can bring your small boat or kayaks (Ninigret has access to the ocean).
There are 4 bedrooms in which 2 rooms have queens, one room has a queen with another twin bed and one room has a double bed. The two story house has two full bathrooms one upstairs and one down as well as a full kitchen, w/dishwasher, dinning room & laundry on first floor. There is a gas grill, Direct TV with sports package & wireless internet. Although there is no a/c, you won't need it, there are fans and there is a nice cool breeze off the ocean!
There is a private tennis court you can walk to and a private beach that can only be accessed by boat. The beach is on the barrier beach that faces block Island. It is the last undeveloped barrier beach on the east coast and it is just gorgeous with a handful of people for miles, even on the weekends.
Boats can be rented from the local marina. The town beach is about a 5 minute drive. The house is next to Ninigret Park which has walking trails, a wildlife refuge, basketball, tennis, soccer fields, observatory, playground and a fresh water pond. Although the town of Charlestown is a quaint and quiet town it has a thriving flea market on the weekends as well as other major events such as the Big Apple Circus, a seafood festival, Rhythm & Roots--check the Chamber of Commerce. There are several nice restaurants, shops, as well as art galleries. Charlestown is about a 30 minute drive from Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casino. It is also just a short drive from The Mystic Seaport and aquarium.
The house is heated.

Beautiful house located on a peaceful cove. Spectacular views of the water from most rooms in the house. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, well-stocked(even provided spices in the kitchen) and beautifully decorated. The owners were extremely helpful and provided valuable info on everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay. We appreciated the restaurant and shopping and places of interest guide they provided. It was a great location, too. We were able to enjoy many town beaches and explored Newport, Providence, Jamestown, Wickford, Narraganset, and Watch Hill and Pt. Judith and Mystic, CT from here. Loved canoeing on the pond and relaxing on the screened in porch. We had a great week and can't wait to come back.
