About Sarah Fletcher
My brother Paul and I were blessed with grandparents who had the foresight to see the beauty in what was, at the time, a far off and inaccessible spot. Margaret and Paul Sr. built the house in 1928 and it was their passion as well as their home. Grandma hosted the annual Audubon bird count and was hostess to many of the conservationists of her generation. Having spent my life watching the pond in all its moods and the parade of wildlife that fills every nook, I have never tired of it and never felt anything but gratitude for the privilege.
Sarah Fletcher purchased this House in 1928
Why Sarah Fletcher chose Charlestown
There are few places where you will wake up to a symphony of bird songs, watch herons, otters, woodchucks, deer and recently bald eagles during the day, see fields of fireflies at dusk and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. This is one of them.
What makes this House unique
Peaceful, beautiful and everchanging.

Our family had an amazing week at this wonderful waterfront house.
This is a great place to vacation. The home is relaxed and well-equipped. The beds are comfortable. The dock on Ninigret Pond is right in your backyard. The property is located in the Arnolda community, which has a number of quiet roads with nice homes on large parcels. The owner, Sarah Fletcher, was very pleasant and helpful but did not hover during the week. All in all, we had an outstanding time at this idyllic vacation home.
Always great to hear! I hope we see you again.
What a beautiful place for a family reunion didn’t give it five stars because of a faulty hot water heater and really lost a full day of the house my other complaint there was not enough of a table for everyone to enjoy a meal together even a picnic table would have been nice I’ve rented a few vacation homes over the years this one is truly special a big bonus was a decent grill that has never happened in my years of vacation rentals
So sorry the hot water heater chose your week to die! Glad you enjoyed the house.
A week in wonderland!
Phenomenal! From the moment we drove down the tree lined road we were captivated. Our arrival took our breath away. The house is idyllic. We were right on the water and the views from several rooms were amazing. The dock was a perfect launch site for our kayak and canoe. We were able to boat to the private beach and enjoy near total privacy. In the evenings we enjoyed just relaxing in the yard and watching the wildlife. There was something for everyone in our group ages 6-53. We rode bikes to the tennis courts, went to Ninigret park and had fun on the playground and fresh water beach, ideal for the little ones. The observatory was open on Friday with amazing views of the night sky. The house itself was unbelievable. Every little detail was taken care of. There was an abundance of high quality plates, glassware, pots and pans. Every kitchen item you could possibly need was ready and waiting. There was even a wonderful collection of spices available. I have never stayed in such a finely appointed rental. There were games and puzzles available. The home was so cozy and comforting. The screen porch was the perfect place for watching the sun rise and for cooling off at night. It truly felt like we were at home. I am already trying to plan a family reunion at this location and the home next door, same owners. An incredible home in an amazing location!
This house is a treasure!
Beautiful house, extremely well equipped kitchen, great layout. We had three generations of family stay here and we all had a wonderful time. The porch is the best spot in the house!
Perfect Place to Exhale!
Look up the definition of COZY and you will find this house! My husband and I spent 5 beautiful days in this warm and perfectly situated house on the POND! Perfect place to kayak....close to everything but you will find it difficult to leave the porch....kitchen stocked....we were lucky enough to meet the owner who was just delightful and so helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do....
Charming, waterfront getaway
The pictures somehow don't capture just how charming the house and location are. My family and I were so glad we opted not to stay directly on the beach. The neighborhood is private and quiet and it is hard to tire of the view. The house was clean and comfortable and can easily absorb two families. The kitchen is well stocked and the local market has anything you need, including really nice cuts of meat. We kayaked almost every day and enjoyed the access to the private beach. My six-year-old loved the dock and wanted to know if we could buy the house. It is centrally located and the owners have a really detailed pamphlet about what to do in the area, where the best food is, etc. We hope to return next year...
