The cottage has amazing views of Ninigret Pond - the birds are beautiful (part of Ninigret is protected), the channel to get to the ocean is right in front of our dock so there is also great boat watching.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I purchased a small cottage on Pond Street in Charlestown in 1995. We fell so in love with the location, area, sunsets, views and more but did grow out of our little cottage (with 3 small children growing), so we purchased the property next store! We have two houses on this property (both with the private dock, 3/10's of a mile to the beach). We spend most of our time just taking in the views, the sunsets, kayaking, shellfishing, bird watching, walking the beach and relaxing calling this our 'little piece of paradise'. We have been renting our cottages since 1995 and happen to have a few openings this year as a result of a few of our long time renters having grown children now and evolving summer plans.

Why the Owner Chose Charlestown:
We chose this location because of the beautiful sunsets on Ninigret Pond and its proximity to the ocean as well as surrounding areas to visit. The private dock and entrance to Ninigret Pond couldn't be more convenient and the unobstructed views of the water, boats, wildlife and sunsets are phenomenal. Charlestown is 10 - 15 minutes away from Misquamicut, Narragansett, University of Rhode Island, Point Judith - Block Island Ferry, Wakefield and Wickford (a cute little seaside town) and 20-30 minutes to Stoninington, CT, the Newport Bridge, Foxwoods Casino, TF Green Airport, Mystic Aquarium and Providence. It's just a really great location!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We and our guests enjoy kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, shell fishing, blue crabbing, bass fishing, surf fishing, walking on the beach, biking, beaching, cocktail hour on the deck watching the sunsets, reading, listening to the birds, floating in the pond, sitting in the dock, sitting on the deck, lawn games, local restaurants, Ninigret Park (where there are tons of things going on such as free weekly summer concerts, Frosty Drew Observatory, disc golf, nature trails, festivals and more), hunting for seashells and heart shaped rocks, General Stanton's weekend flea markets, Friday farmers market, all the unique little boutique's in the area as well as tons of golf courses nearby. We also enjoy the proximity to the Block Island Ferry, the fresh seafood either caught in Ninigret Salt pond or getting it from the boats in Galilee.
