Lovely, high end home available for weekend getaways, holiday weeks, New England summers, and cozy fall and winter excursions. We just recently completed a complete renovation to the highest standards. Panoramic westerly water views and Sunsets over the Sakonnet River from the master bed balcony. Great artwork, funky antiques, granite/stainless kitchen, claw foot tub, two custom baths, two gas fireplaces, antique pine floors, vintage radiators, and cool custom/vintage materials give this cottage a clean, contemporary and interesting feel.
The best feature is an amazing 30 x 15 Master suite with a fireplace, king size bed, private bath, and french doors to a private balcony overlooking the Sakonnet. Lower level is smallish, with a 20 x 12 fireplaced kitchen/living area, a bedroom with bunk bed, a third sitting room with daybeds, and another full bath. There's a front porch, vintage cobblestone patio, and a fantastic hot/cold mahogany outdoor shower.
Its not a party house, its a tasteful little cottage, ok for entertaining in the summer but smallish for winter indoor dinners for more than 4 adults. I think the house is a perfect romantic weekend getaway, or great retreat for a couple or young family.
Little Compton is a charming seaside New England town featuring stone walls, farm stands, fresh seafood, and sandy beaches. Here's what the Providence Journal had to say in July of 2013: 'What the state’s historical commission wrote in a survey report about the town in 1986 remains true today: “Isolated and remote, Little Compton has been relatively free from the political pressures or economic forces that have transformed much of the rest of Rhode Island into a dense, urban and suburban metropolis.”
“The town’s resistance to change — at first a result of its isolation, later due to deliberate decisions — has preserved a remarkable legacy,” the report added. “... Little Compton presents an idyllic picture, complete with rolling topography, a quiltwork pattern of stone-wall-bounded farms and woodland, complemented by marshes, saltwater ponds, barrier beaches, a rocky promontory at Sakonnet Point, old farm complexes, comfortable summer houses, winding roads, and tree-lined villages.”
Newport is appx 30 minutes away, Providence or Boston an hour or so. Walk to the beach at the end of our street, or a short drive to numerous other beaches, nature trails, the town commons, Sakonnet Vineyards, Christmas tree farms, artists studios and antique shops.
Includes: Linens, towels, cookware, a couple of televisions with blu ray players, loads of dvds, blu rays, and books; wireless internet; coffee maker, nespresso machine. Bring your suitcase, bike, kayak, or running shoes and you should be fine!

Little Compton is a quaint New England coastal community, regarded for both its natural beauty and its exclusiveness. Visit the Town Commons with its white steeple church and colonial cemetery, enjoy one of the many area beaches, take a tour of Sakonnet Vineyards, get fresh local produce at one of the many farm stands or the Saturday Farmer's market, go antiquing, walk the nature trails, or simply stroll to the end of our street for a dip in the Sakonnet. If you enjoy running, rollerblading or bicycling, you will fall in love with the town's beautiful roads and trails. If the Kayak is more your style, you will be amazed at Narragansett Bay! Dinning choices nearby are plentiful, especially in Bristol (15 minute drive), which boasts some of RI's most creative and delicious kitchens. Of course, Newport is always fun for a night out or a day of touring the mansions.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I'm a lawyer practicing in a small firm in Rhode Island, a life long resident of the smallest state, and Rhode Island's biggest fan! I love it here, from the fascinating and eclectic downcity Providence, to historic Newport with its summer 'cottages' fit for kings and queens, to the quintessential New England seaside town Little Compton.
Why the Owner Chose Little Compton, RI, USA:
I purchased this home to rehab and put on the market, but the more time I spent in Little Compton the harder it was to part with this house! My kids and I love going there, its the most relaxing place int he world - and one of the prettiest!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Think New England seaside communities and Little Compton is the point of reference. Stone walls, farmers markets, roadside stands with amazing fresh vegetables, the freshest seafood, a town commons with white steeple church and historic cemetery, gorgeous beaches, and wide open vistas of green grass and blue sea. Summer, fall or winter, Little Compton's charm and beauty remain the same.
