What makes this Estate unique
Our stunning historic 19th century Victorian sits on 22 acres of sprawling, spacious lawns and woodlands that lead to several walking trails behind the house. The moment we drove up the tree arched long driveway and laid eyes on this property, we fell in love with the beauty, grandeur and tranquility of it! The house, surrounding property, and the outlying rural beach towns of Westport, Dartmouth, and Little Compton make for an environment of true respite, retreat, and rejuvenation. This whole area is a hidden gem! Not only are we 10 minutes from several beautiful beaches but this entire area lies on the same latitude as Sonoma and Napa, CA and is home to a handful of great vineyards including Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyard in Little Compton, Greenvale in Portsmouth, and Newport Vineyards.

College Graduation Retreat
We recently rented this property for our sons college graduation celebration. We needed a large house to sleep 16 (can fit up to 21 on singles and pullouts), with plenty of space for the post graduation celebration (had 24 inside due to rain) ... and this more than fit the bill. The grounds are beautiful and the owners were more than accommodating (suggested a caterer - The Westporter, who was excellent! and were on hand if needed throughout the stay). The house is well kept up, but old and there were a lot of rules, like no shoes allowed on the hardwood floors ... suggest getting a copy of "The Boutique Retreat Estate Instructions" before renting. With that said, we would rent again +/or recommend to others!
Ted! Thank you for your review and feedback. We enjoyed hosting your family for your son’s graduation weekend and appreciate you choosing to stay with us. Thank you for taking such good care of our historic home (except for the coat rack ;-)). You are welcome back anytime!
Regarding our House Instruction, it’s absolutely true that we care deeply for this property and feel quite protective. We see ourselves as stewards of a beautiful sanctuary. Our House Instructions are meant to inspire guests to care for & respect the 200 year old history of this gorgeous estate! We are happy to share our House Instructions with potential guests. Just ask!
One point of clarification - we ask that shoes not be worn on the upper 2 floors to protect and maintain cozy decorative rugs in the bedrooms. Shoes are fine on the first floor!
We wish you & your family all the best! Thank you again.
While the home was extremely beautiful, I would only recommend this place for peaceful retreats. Everything was very fragile and antique. Noise level was something to be constantly conscious about, as quietness is stressed. Newport was about 40mins away.
Lovely house, great owners, could not have been better
