Misquamicut cottage description

A cozy vacation cottage is yours to rent in scenic New England, just steps away from a private ocean beach. Frolic in the sun and surf, walk for miles along our white, sandy beach, fish from the jetties, or just kick back on the big, spacious deck.

When you've had enough sun, visit Newport's spectacular mansions, hop a ferry to Block Island, or try your luck at the casinos. There's tennis and golf, Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, the harbor, shops, and an old-time carousel at nearby Watch Hill, plus factory outlet shopping too.

So for a sun splashed vacation, with something for the whole family, why not stay in the heart of it all, and rent your cottage in Misquamicut Rhode Island this year! We are located in a quiet family area at the eastern end of Misquamicut just over the little bridge from Weekapaug.

                      Misquamicut has a very active Chamber of Commerce which sponsors free entertainment on the beach for both children and adults most weekdays during July and August.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1976

                      About the owner: We are a retired couple who delight in all that the beach has to offer...balmy breezes...the caressing warmth of the sun...the cries of the gulls...the smell of the ozone-laden wind...the sounds of the surf...and of course, the splash of a fish dinner just waiting to be caught!

                      Why the Owner Chose Misquamicut:
                      This was one of the few beach locations with a lively city/town just a handful of miles away. This gave us easy access to cultural venues (live theater, performing arts events, art galleries, museums, a large public library}, as well as diverse shopping and lots of dining choices, ranging from fast-food favorites to fine dining by the sea, and much much more in between. We also liked being able to easily day-trip anywhere within Rhode Island, as well as to many parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      This is a very family-friendly beach location. The local Chamber of Commerce sponsors free entertainment on the beach (easy walking distance from the cottage, or drive and park) most weeknights during July and August. This includes kid-friendly movies on the beach, a major concert event in July, smaller, weekly band concerts and jams, and classic car meets. Kids may also enjoy finding their very own hermit crabs (from our backyard) and entering their crabs in the weekly-held hermit crab races. Evenings find many families at the beach-side amusement area riding the bumper cars, slurping ice cream cones, or flying down the slides at the Water Whizz. For the adults, there is nothing so soothing as nodding off or waking up to the sounds of the surf. We have easy access to a private ocean beach as well as to Winnapaug Pond. Our beach association insures that there is always plenty of room for your umbrella and towel. The pond has many sandbars for 'beaching' as well. It is accessible by your canoe or kayak from our back yard. You can also rent small boats and other watercraft nearby. For the fisherfolk there is excellent fishing for striped bass, fluke and blue fish. No boat? Try wading, surf casting, or the use of twin jetties very close by.
