About Bill & Diana Welch

We vacationed here for 10 yrs. before our dream came true of owning a place directly on the Quonnie Pond. We called it our giant aquarium when our daughter was young.WE love boating,clam bakes, beach combing,fishing & playing on/in the water. The scenic sunsets, moonlight& wide open sky are picturesque not to mention the ever changing water views are unsurpassed! This area boasts unique pristine & private beaches,water activities,events,shopping,tall ships, Fairs art & Agricultural. Lots of fun & variety.It's a great vacation spot in paradise!We just love it here!We encourage you to experience it,too!

Why Bill & Diana Welch chose Charlestown

Location,Location,Location! There isn't a better place to vacation than Quonochontaug! The water views & sunsets are gorgeous. Lot's to do, minutes to everything, a giant playground.

What makes this house unique

Great Birdwatching area. Ospreys have nest within view. They return every year faithfully. So do blue & white herons, Canada Geese, and many other species.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our second stay here this yr. We just love the Quonnie! We have been vacationing in this area for years. It was a great thrill & pleasure to rent directly on the saltpond.The house was wonderful. We brought our own flattop boat & had lots of company. We enjoyed every minute. It doesn't get any better than this!

Beautiful Location

  • 3 of 5

Rental was on beautiful Quonnie Pond. Location was private and quiet. Beds were comfortable. Blankets could have been of a better quality. Kitchen was well equipped but cabinets could have been cleaned and unusable items removed. Frustrating not to have enough space to put your food. There is a great pantry closet in the kitchen but needed to be completely emptied. The gas grill was falling apart with rusty grill grates and very little gas. If felt like with a little updating and attention to detail the rental would have felt worth the price.

Perfect for Fourth of July

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us (2 adults, 1 senior, 1 teen in a wheelchair). It was comfortable, clean, cool in the hot weather and the west facing water views provided breathtaking sunsets every nite. We watched three different fireworks displays from the comfort of the back patio. Fresh clams and fishing in the backyard and a nice 6 mi bike ride to the bakery. Easy day trip to Block Island. We had a lovely week of relaxing seaside experiences. We hope to be back!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay here---return trip. There's so much to see & do. A highlight for me was sailing on the Adorondic sailboat out of Mystic. It was neat large square rigged sailboat that you cruise around the Mystic area

Felt Like Home But With A Better View

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited the area for a friends wedding and stayed at this home. We found it very homey and comfortable. The home was adequately supplied with everything we needed during our stay and were even able to stay in and cook dinner for my family. I missed the great view from the kitchen and living room after I got home and hope to visit the area again soon. I would recommend this home to stay at when visiting the area and I recently did to one of my friends vacationing to the area.

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time here! Great times- many special of guests & family. Enjoyed staying on the water, with breathtaking views of the water, boats, hearing the seagulls, smelling the wonderful salt air. Loved the fresh picked raspberries from the backyard. My husband & friend clammed & fished so we ate fresh grilled clams casino & fish---so delicious! We kayak-ed from our back yard! We lived in our bathing suits the whole time! There's nothing like it!

Loved our Stay!

  • 4 of 5

There is Nothing like the Quonnie, there's Nothing like the Quonnie, there's nothing like the Quonnie...I feel like Dorothy in Wizard of Oz. The water views are mezmerising you just can't take your eyes off of it.When the sun hits the water it looks like sparkling diamonds! I looooove the water!!! I wish I could live here! We kayaked in the cool of the morning, saw many unique water birds and picked up shells as well as enjoyed the scenery.

The house is nice and comfortable. There's plenty of room and is well furnished.The breakfast bar is handy and the beds are comfy.It's a summery home with tile in most rooms for easy clean up and anyone wearing beach clothes.The decor is nice. We loved the grassy backyard and the big open sky. It's like the pond is part of your yard.We grilled fresh fish & clams from pond to palette! Simply delectable and can't get any fresher than that!!

It is central to many activities( Flea Market), close to the stores, gas& food.We biked to nearby Ninegrit pond, Burlingame and nearby beaches.Our friends stayed down the street but seemed to be here with us more than their rental.

There are several restaurants & take out places to eat. Our big nite out was going to the casinos.A few of us even won money! It was fun!

We will be back soon!
