And as is one daughter. I have been living on the water every summer since I can remember. I owned and operated and taught at my Early Childhood Center in Nashua NH, but spent my Summers and Weekends in our cottage in East Matunuck. I love children, music and the ocean. Do a bit of photography and painting when time allows. LOVE TAHE BEACH!!!! And I an lucky enough to be at the beach, so I am lucky enough!!

Lorna C. Browning purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Lorna C. Browning chose Charlestown

LOVE the beach and this piece of property hurt my heart when I saw it. The color of the ocean, the smell of the sea , the beautiful beach, the solitude and the View, took my breath away. It is four lots. ... I have three daughters....perfect fit!

What makes this cottage unique

It is MINE! Lol. The ocean....the sand, the surf, and the gentle salty breezes! And no Close neighbors! Just the perfect spot to enjoy and relax! In this busy life we all lead, we have earned some time to enjoy the SEASIDE! Many people are not this lucky! To wake up and hear the surf and to he to bed watching the shimmer of the moon on the water! Really!! Could you ask for more?? Not me! To me that is as good as it gets! I would love to share it with you.

  • A wonderful way to end your salty, sandy days at the beach. A nice hot/cold shower outside to rinse away the sandy day. You can stand in the shower and feel the sun and hear the surf crashing in the background. Wonderful! It really makes it a 'summer shower'. Due to damage from hurricane Sandy, we now have town water in a tank that is filled weekly. Bathrooms are equiped with vanity sinks and showers. Main bathrooms have slate floors and the apartment has a pine floor. We are on town water. Brought in by tanks, so COSERVATIVE water use is required Short showers, no water running (brushing teeth, doing dishes etc. THANKS...this is all rather new, but we find it has worked very well so far. If the water runs out, which it never has, so far, you will switch back to the well, and will need to call me to set up an extra water run. Again, this has never happened, but it will be a $100.00 extra charge taken from the security deposit. Conservative use will give you an ample supply.

Our 'SEASIDE' cottage, is set up and ready for your arrival. The fact that you are right on the beach, allows you to be there most of the time. If you have beach games, bring them with you and set it up on the beach! The deck is nice for the late afternoons, when you want to cool off and relax with a beverage, snack or book. Deck has chairs, table, umbrella and lounge. I have had the cottage for over 40 years and it is a little piece of 'seaside' heaven. The key will be on the table, door unlocked.... we are ready when you are! Ninigret Park is just down the street and offers a new playground, fishing access, nature trails, swimming lagoon, tennis courts, etc. A great change for a day away from the beach...but still outside with nature! Also Block Island is a great day trip, or Galilee, Newport, Watch Hill, Narragansett. The seaside villages are everywhere! For an evening out, Foxwoods is 20 min. away. I think the deck offers a better night out, with the surf and stars

Swim, fish or bask in the sun on your own private beach and enjoy your vacation in a luxurious way. Close to shopping and entertainment, this cottage has it all.

Comparing notes with friends and family who also took beach vacations this summer, I’m glad we chose Seaside. First, for the Rhode Island beaches—easy to get to, low-key, not crowded. And this beach was quite lovely, especially since we were perched on a deck right over it. Nothing more restorative than gazing out at that gigantic horizon and expanse of uninterrupted blue…except for sleeping to the sound of surf. We spent a lot of time on the deck, as it features all the benefits of the beach with none of the ordeal of getting to it or sitting on it! The house was wonderfully situated, and comfortable in a laid-back, beachy way; I especially appreciated the decent mattresses upstairs. The configuration of the house turned out to be the best of its features: we four “older” adults inhabited the main abode (btw for couples, a short hall separates the 2 queen bedrooms upstairs, there is no door or curtain) and my 3 adult children who stay up all night inhabited the apartment (queen, small bunkroom), so we didn’t suffer from each other’s schedules though we used only the main kitchen and ate all our dinners together. The kitchen is well kitted out (although some lids for the pots would be nice) and we made full use of the fresh seafood and produce and pie stand up the street. Our best adventure was a day on Block Island, right across the sound, where we rented bikes and mopeds and toured the entire island. Even though I’m not a beach person, I’d return to this rental. Thank you, Lorna!

Stunning Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We arrived for a long labor day weekend....5 couples.

There is no better property for view, location and access to your private beach. The bunk bed rooms were small. There is a large master bedroom upstairs. Each floor has a full bath. The attached apartment has a full stocked kitchen, full bath, a bed bunk room and another with double bed. We had great weather so most of our time was spent on the deck/beach. There is nothing missing from this rental. The property was clean & maintained. We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear you enjoyed your SEASIDE vacation. A family that plays together, stays together! I hope you return! Having the soft, sandy private beach at your doorstep...makes it so easy to go from the cottage to the beach... Especially with children or older adults! You put it to good use with the volley ball net! SEASIDE fun! Stay happy and healthy!

Awesome end of summer weekend

  • 4 of 5

What an Awesome house. Location is great, cant get any better then on the beach. There was plenty of room for all in my party. The description was right on point and the Owner's response to my questions was immediate. We rented the entire house for the weekend and it worked out perfect. You can tell how much the owner cares because of the wonderful updated floors are beautifule and the couches are comfortable and best of all listening to the waves crashing while you fall asleep. It's location is convienent to the taste of Mystic and Point Judith. After the first shower you learn not to open you mouth or eyes( you are on the ocean) but other than that it was a wondrful weekend in a beautiful house. Cant wait for next year. Thanks

Owner's Response: We now have fresh water!!! Hurricane Sandy claimed our now town water is brought in! I rather enjoyed the saltyish showers, but for dishes it was time consuming to get the water from the dispenser in the kitchen for rinsing and flowers. So glad you loved it as much as we do. The sound of the surf, the sand in your toes, the ocean breezes, the view, and the privacy is what drew us to it the first day we saw it! A great place to relax and get your energy back! The ocean has a way of doing that! Hope to see you again....SEASIDE!

A true seaside cottage

  • 4 of 5

Desparate to get to the beach, I inquired about this property since I wasn't sure how many people/families from my group would be going and the ad said sleeps 4-12. Well, lucky for us the side for 4 was open! (Who knew we'd be lucky enough to be at the beach?!) Because the owner was so accomodating we were able to pull off a wonderful 3 days right on Charlestown Beach in her little beach cottage.

I just read the other reviews and can confirm the location, location, location! Also I just saw the recommendation for the Matunuck Oyster Bar. Luckily we found that on our own and had a great meal in spite of the pouring rain (entrees got soaked upon delivery, but were still good). We saw a terrific "light show" and fortunately recieved our meal prior to the restaurant losing power. We were glad we had power at the house when we returned! Also glad the "master" bedroom had a ceiling fan and more glad we brought a small one from home. I suggest you bring one because if you have to close the windows due to rain, it does get pretty stuffy, otherwise there is a great breeze!

Having just gotten a smaller car, we were thrilled beach chairs and umbrellas were found right under the house en route to the beach and when done with them you drop them off right next to the outdoor shower! Yep, the shower is salty, A new experience but not terrible. I guess it could be handy if you have a sore throat. We noticed no smells expect the fabulous salt air. Our last night we "took out" food from the Breachway Grille. Half of it was ready before the rest, and we had to wait so some items didn't travel as well as others, but overall it was very good. I bet if you ate there it would have been even better. For us, we were having such a terrific beach day and early evening we chose to stay on the deck, so a little soggy food, was worth it!

If you are willing to sacrifice some space* for location on a terrific beach, rent this cottage.

*We were 2 adults and 2 grown kids with another visiting for the day. It's perfect if the weather is good, cozy if it isn't. It's probably ideal for a couple with small children.

RIGHT ON THE BEACH... Just a few steps away, and you can swim in the ocean, RELAX on the off the bridge or rent a boat and go out for the day in the ocean or the saltwater inlets. Small restaurant just a little up the road. Kids love to feel 'independant' and walk over for a drink or lunch 'on their own'! If you want to leave the beach, there are many restaurants, New England waterfront villages or parks close by. Monthly events include Art Shows, The Big Circus, Chowder Festival etc. The Yatching towns of Newport, Wickford and Watch Hill have great shops, restaurants and 'boat watching'. The Fox Woods Casino is 20 minutes away for shows and great dinners and gambling. Being in R.I. everything is close! There are lakes, natural reserves, flea markets and antique stores. The very best is the beaches, and you have one of the best right in front of the cottage! Ninigret Park offers gentle surf, clear blue water, sugary sand, and an unspoiled barrier beach. 4000 acres of wildlife sanctuaries, a new playground, fishing access, trails, swimming, tennis, bike paths etc. this is just a few minutes away. A nice change for a day, but still enjoying the ocean and nature.

We have it all! BUT...YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO DRAG YOURSELF AWAY FROM 'SEASIDE'. The sunset and sunrise is outstanding...and the peacefulness of the cottage is swept up in the sound of the surf. Nice to nod off to sleep to. We have water brought in, as Hurricane Sandy destroyed our well, so we request that you are conservative with the water. It is town water .

There is a GREAT little deli/ sandwich shop, at the beginning of the road, a bakery, ice cream shop and a wonderful fresh fruit and vegetable store.

About 5 min away is the Charlestown Mini Super. Wonderful fresh fish, chowder, fresh made bread and pizza, great meats and soups.and just about anything you forgot when shopping. Breakfast sandwiches are wonderful! There is also a bakery and sandwich shop at the beginning of Charlestown Beach Road. Great for morning muffins...or a quick pick up for lunch. Relax and sit on the deck or beach, rather than hustle in the kitchen. This is YOUR enjoy.
