About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

'Four Winds' is a beautiful cedar-shingled house on a private road on high ground that gradually slopes down a grassy field to a secluded cove and Rhode Island Sound. The front of the house faces water with fenced in yard in rear. All rooms have a view of the water. The living room has a large picture window facing the water and a wood burning fireplace. The large eat-in kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher and also has a big picture window facing the water. The grass patio is enclosed by a stone wall and provides a beautiful view of the water as well as cool summer breezes and is an excellent place for evening drinks. A master bedroom with private bath is on the first floor with another large bedroom and two smaller ones located upstairs.

Walk a hundred feet down to the secluded cove and sun yourself on the beach, swim, snorkle, fish or bring your sunfish or kayak and explore the coastline. Bring your surf board and walk a hundred yards down the road to 'Town Property' where the surfers ride the swells, or just walk along the rocky coastline to see what the tide brought in that day.

The Town of Little Compton public beach a.k.a. South Shore is less than 2 miles down the road and has a sandy beach and bottom, life guards, parking, restrooms, and a vending cart. If the crowds get to be too much for you just walk down the beach to 'Goosewing' and enjoy the privacy.

Enjoy a meal at the Commons Lunch or take a tour of Sakonnet Vineyards and pick up a bottle of wine for dinner. A cookout on the beach is always a fun time especially after you've caught your own dinner off of Fishing Rock. Follow that with a driftwood fire and s'mores and the last of the wine.

Peaceful week by the water

  • 4 of 5

The views were lovely. Several nearby points of interest, particularly an oceanfront Park only a 5 minutes walk. The house is well maintained. Beautiful late afternoon vistas from the terrace.

The home was in a spectacular setting, breezy, well equipped, and with great views. Kids loved the kitchen table and the views, and the nearby beaches and big surf (town beach, Briggs, and Horseneck). Little Compton is a beautiful rural place with friendly people and rock fences on every property. I am going back here again.

A fabulous week with friends and family in a most beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in our idea of what a summer home should be. It was on Little Cove Road in Little Compton, RI. It is a quiet, spacious, airy, well-appointed house with a million-dollar view of Little Cove on the Atlantic. This charming house has a master bedroom on the first floor with its own bath ... plus a full kitchen, a big comfortable beamed living room, a laundry room and a half bath. The second floor has three bedrooms (two with bunk beds, one with a queen-sized bed) and a full bathroom. If anything, the views from the second floor are even more spectacular. A neat part of this setting is that it faces due East so the morning sun greeted us every morning for our coffee and disappeared behind the house in the afternoon ... cooling everything off. A grassy patio off the living room is perfect for cocktail time, al fresco dining and barbecuing…and it’s just a short walk to the beach!

This house is part of a three-house complex all owned by the same extended family for generations and an important plus was the comity of the other residents. A professor of ornithology and his lovely daughters patiently taught our grandchildren all about crabbing, Tautog fishing and the capture and tagging of birds. At times we had as many as ten people easily staying overnight without any discomfort. We highly recommend giving this house a try ... but., please, not when we want to rent it …

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We hoped to have a special time with family and that's just what this comfortable, well-appointed house on the water gave us. Family meals were an important part of our stay and with an expansive view of the water and an easy-to-cook-in kitchen, we shared stories and laughs around the big table every night, making memories we will always treasure.

Spectacular views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here in September -- our second visit. The house is well-maintained, immaculate, and very comfortable. Every room has a spectacular view of the ocean which is only a few hundred steps away. We love relaxing on the patio watching the waves and walking on the rocky beaches. The nearby town of LC is beautiful and historic. Be sure to visit Evelyn's for good seafood, and The Commons Lunch for genuine RI johnnycakes. We hope to come back!

We stayed from Aug1-15 . The house was clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9,mix adults and children. The very first thing you notice is the breath taking views of the cove and ocean beyond from every window. We all enjoyed walking down to the cove ,the kids loved looking for sea glass , small smooth stones and driftwood. The house's yard faced the cove, was great for relaxing in the late afternoon or early evening after a day at the town beach. The kids enjoyed the beach and yard as well . They liked kite flying and games of tag in the constant breeze we all enjoyed in the yard. The location was perfect too. Some of us went to Newport and others took the children to Battle Ship Cove on our rainy day. A trip later in the week to the Whaling Museum and lunch at the Sakonet Winery al fresco rounded out two beautiful weeks. I enjoyed having coffee every morning in the kitchen and watching the sun come up over the Atlantic in utter peace and quiet. The setting of the house is perfect, The Community of Little Compton is charming. If there is a draw back it this, although there is plenty of town beach space during the week if you plan to use the town beach on Saturday or Sunday arrive early.
