About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Check the surf out at Fenway Beach from the front terrace then walk there in 5 minutes and dive in it. At the end of a pleasant beach day, relax on that same terrace with your refreshment in hand and watch the sun set over the beaches of Misquamicut and Watch Hill. Later, as the moon rises, wrap yourself in a blanket on the terrace and watch the frequent fireworks displays mixed with the starry night sky.

Fondly known as 'The Nest' by the longtime owners, the cottage was built in 1894 as a small guest abode behind the neighboring house. Over the next 100 years it was added onto little by little. The front bedroom has a Queen size bed and private bathroom. The middle bedroom has a Queen size bed and shares a quaint bathroom adorned with a claw footed tub, with the third bedroom. The living and dining areas are combined in one space, with a bay window that looks southwest to Watch Hill. A new addition to the cottage is now complete and also included in the rental - it has a bedroom with queen bed and bath and sitting area with small balcony upstairs with views to Watch Hill, and a bedroom with queen bed and two fold down bunk beds, downstairs with bathroom, family room and dining area. Family room has large screen TV for those rainy days, or evenings when you just want to be entertained.

This house is a place where generations have come to enjoy the beach and the quiet seaside community of Weekapaug. It is situated on a large private lot. There are no granite counter tops; no wall to wall carpeting, no fancy stainless steel kitchen appliances in this house. But what you will find at 'The Nest' is a patina polished by time and family love.

About Alice Siebecker

Member of Family handling the rental of our beloved seaside cottage for a limited amount of time this year. The rest of the year, is taken by family members.

Alice Siebecker purchased this cottage in 1894

Why Alice Siebecker chose Weekapaug

If you like Weekapaug and enjoy some of the old seaside cottage feel with some modern amenities - think "Summer of 42" movie - this cottage is for you. The beaches are spectacular, the summer weather divine with the smell of wild roses and salt air - and there are plenty of amenities close by. The Fenway bathing beach has been described by a previous renter as the "Best Beach in the World".

What makes this cottage unique

The biggest draw of the Weekapaug area, is the private Fire District beaches and seclusion. The bathing beach has some of the best surfing due to its long gradual slope out into the ocean. During peak season, there are lifeguards on duty throughout the day and security staff present checking beach users to insure that they are a part of the fire district. Beach buttons are provided at the rental for renters to use on the beach so they are known to be a part of the Fire District residents. The other beaches are lovely and wonderful to walk on, sit on, tide pool on or whatever you desire. Rental of kayaks and canoes is available in the area for boating on large tidal ponds - inquire locally in Westerly or Charlestown, the fire district does not have rental business currently.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

The conditions were excellent, clean and cozy. The furnishings were artistic and promoted relaxation. We easily slept 10 using the pullout in the living room, and fit a crib for the baby. An easy walk to three different type beaches. Bike riding and surf swimming was a lot of fun. We'll go again next year.
