This is a water front summer beach cottage with breathtaking views of the salt pond in Charlestown, Rhode Island. Built into a hill this quaint cottage is bigger than it seems with 5 bedrooms and two living rooms. It over looks a cove that shows off spectacular sunsets from the deck as well as the inside living room or dining area. This cottage is located in a private association on a dead end peninsula of Ninigret pond.
There is a private tennis court you can walk to and a private beach that can only be accessed by boat. The beach is on the barrier beach that faces block Island. It is the last undeveloped barrier beach on the east coast and it is just gorgeous with a handful of people for miles, even on the weekends.
Boats can be rented from the local marina. The town beach is about a 5 minute drive. The house is next to Ninigret Park which has walking trails, a wildlife refuge, basketball, tennis, soccer fields, observatory, playground and a fresh water pond. Although the town of Charlestown is a quaint and quiet town it has a thriving flea market on the weekends as well as other major events such as the Big Apple Circus, a seafood festival, Rhythm & Roots--check the Chamber of Commerce. There are several nice restaurants, shops, as well as art galleries.
Charlestown is about a 30 minute drive from Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casino. It is also just a short drive from The Mystic Seaport and aquarium. Golf, Historic Newport and Block Island ferry all within 30 minutes. The cottage is minutes away from Burlingame State Park. Playground and tennis courts just a short walk down the road. Fresh seafood and fine dining along with outdoor casual eating nearby.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect vacation spot for the whole family
I had such a wonderful time staying here! I wish I could start every day sitting on the porch gazing at the beautiful view. The layout was perfect for all ages to have areas that they could be together and areas that they could escape for their own activities, which is important when the group ranged from 5 to 75 years old! I loved taking long walks in the area, and the town is just adorable. I'm definitely planning on coming back next year.
Wonderful Summer Vacation
I have stayed here multiple times and always love it. It is a wonderful place for families with room for everyone. The house was well taken care of and equipped. The area is perfect for outdoor activities like kayaking and biking. I would definitely recommend the property for anyone who wants a relaxed family vacation.
I spent a month at this cottage. The location is secluded, the house accommodates 10 with ease. The pond is warm and perfect for paddleboarding and kayaking. The kitchen is well appointed with pans and everything needed for a gourmet cook. Cocktails and or coffee on the deck is bliss. The home was clean and in perfect condition upon arrival. The owner is responsive and attentive and very nice. I would recommend this home highly and may just go back myself.
