About the property

Nantucket Style Cottage with Private Dock, Hot Tub, Two Kayaks, and Mooring

Entre Chien et Loup is a charming Nantucket-style cottage on the water in Tiverton. Owned by a Franco-American couple of professors, the house was named Entre Chien et Loup, after an old French expression for twilight, or the “hour between the dog and the wolf.” Indeed, in summer the property is blessed with some truly spectacular sunsets, which can be admired—along with the sweeping water views—from a large patio, sizable deck, or from the fragrant tranquility of a “secret garden”, dotted with lavender, herbs, and wild hydrangeas. This is a house designed to provide the most relaxing form of holiday experience. With a private dock and mooring, as well as two kayaks and a state-of-the art Caldera Aventine hot tub, it should appeal to every holidaymaker, from the avid sailor to the couple seeking a romantic respite, away from the stress and humdrum of everyday life. Everything is carefully planned to provide guests with the perfect seaside getaway.

Upon checking in, you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of French bubbly, freshly laundered robes, high-end French toiletries, and a jar of Rhode Island’s best roasted coffee. The house is cozy and well furnished, with a well-equipped chef’s kitchen, fine hardwood floors, high-speed internet, and comfortable bedding. A dedicated and highly professional house manager, Korey, is on call. In addition to enjoying the nicely furnished dining and living rooms, guests can unwind in everyone’s favorite room: the sunroom, with its large windows that look right out over the sparkling waves, and a wall-mounted TV equipped with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

The location is ideal—only 20 minutes from the mansions, beaches and winding colonial streets of Newport, and a 10 minute drive from the lush farmland and produce stands of Little Compton. For those traveling from Massachusetts, the house is only 70 minutes from Boston. Excellent dining options are within five to ten minutes, as well as grocery stores, cheese mongers, and home-made New England ice cream!

Charming and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Entre Chien et Loup was charming and true to the photos. The location was perfect for exploring the South Coast. The owner, Jenny, was very helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend this property although not for families with young children.

Beautiful, well-appointed house in great setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful, well-appointed house. The outdoor spaces (complete with hot tub) are great. The gardens are lovely. The house is filled with beautiful artwork. The kitchen is amazing. And the owner has thoughtfully provided nearly everything you might want when you first arrive. All the small touches are very well done, down to the beautifully scented soaps. We would unhesitatingly recommend this house, especially for couples.
