About the owner: Ponder is jointly owned by two branches of a family that shares a love of the Rhode Island sea coast. While we call a total of five different states 'home' between us, we all treasure the time that we can spend at Ponder. We have all had wonderful times here, celebrating weddings and birthdays, and just enjoying time with family and friends. Many of us have fond memories of getting our first gold ring on the Watch Hill carousel, or attending concerts and fireworks in the Westerly park. And we all have spent many hours relaxing on the many beautiful sandy beaches available in the area.
Why the Owner Chose Westerly, RI, USA:
Some of us were raised in Westerly and have known the area and all it has to offer for our entire lifetimes. Others have come to know it more recently. We all agree that it offers the perfect blend of natural beauty and quiet, as well as lots of activities and things to do for people of all ages.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In addition to an amazing location, this house is very comfortable and offers all of the conveniences of home. You can spend your time relaxing and reading on the sun porch, enjoying a cup of coffee on the back steps overlooking the water, or taking advantage of all of the activities that its waterfront location allows. The large grounds provide plenty of space for children to run around and play. The well-equipped kitchen allows you to easily cook and eat in, if you wish. The pass to the Dunes Beach, which comes with the weekly rental, makes it easy for you to park right at the beach.
