About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Situated on the southwestern Rhode Island coast, Weekapaug has for over a century been a discreetly hidden gem for beach vacation lovers who value the feeling of being minutes away and worlds apart. The Catbird Seat was duly named by our father because of its ideal location and remarkable views. It is one of few homes with upper level living to maximize the panorama both indoor and out, as well as rare proximity to beach, tennis, surfing, sailing and your morning newspaper, all via a short walk. Find your toes in the sand in a less than a five-minute walk down the beach path.

Within a few miles, neighboring towns of Watch Hill, Misquammicut, Shelter Harbor, and Westerly offer a variety of local and landmark restaurants as well as services including watersport rentals, golf, library, theater, movies, shopping, and so much more, yet still return home at the end of the day to your raised deck and toast the sunset over the ocean while listening to the waves crash on Fenway beach.

The Catbird Seat offers spectacular year round ocean views from almost every room, but especially the upstairs living room, dining room and kitchen which all access a large deck wrapping around the ocean end of the house. A double-facing fireplace creates the focal point for the open floor plan. Abundant indoor and outdoor seating maximize the panorama. Sliding doors and fans hung from cathedral ceilings keep the ocean breezes and surf sounds filling the house.

Upstairs accommodations include a king bedroom suite with private bath as well as a queen bedroom and one other bedroom with two twin beds that share a second bath. A fourth bedroom with queen bed and private bath is located downstairs for a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths allowing 8 guests. Leave the sand outside with a convenient fourth outdoor hot shower. Utility room has washer/dryer. Updated kitchen appliances and outdoor grill make enjoying meals on the deck a pleasure. Plenty of parking for multiple cars and/or boat trailer. A wooden painted beach box (another Weekapaug traditon) is at the entrance of the beach and holds chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys available for the enjoyment of guests of The Catbird Seat.

Pets allowed with conditions and approval. Sorry, no smoking.

About owner/property manager

We are three sisters currently living in Baltimore, MD, New York, NY, and Essex, CT but we all grew up in NY spending our summers and weekends here in Weekapaug. Our parents bought the home adjacent to this house and the land on which the Catbird Seat now sits in 1960. In 1975, they began construction of the current house in order to have a winterized way to enjoy more time here. As we all grew up on the sands of Fenway Beach, spending hours on the tennis courts, fishing on Long Island Sound, and sailing the ponds, so does our next generation. It is a pleasure to share our love of Weekapaug and creation of lifelong memories with you.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 1959

Happy Place, our Home Away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from Denver, who just spent our 5th summer at this perfect home! The unobstructed view from the wrap around porch, the peaceful neighborhood, the private neighborhood beach down a sandy bath just steps from the home all add up to the perfect vacation! We can't wait to be back her again next year. Our children have grown up here with a sense of freedom and wonder as they walk to the local corner store (the Inlet) for morning egg sandwiches, and explored the tide pools and rocks along the pier. For my husband and I nothing beats sunset cocktails on the porch- perfection. Thanks to the hosts for taking such great care of us year after year. We are so excited for next summer. :)

Absolutely perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! What an easy home to enjoy. It's a 2 minute walk to the beach as well as to the adorable sandwich shop a block away. Tennis courts 2 blocks away. Views from the deck kept us outside from the early morning well after dinner. The clean open floor plan filled the house with sea breezes all day long. I'd like to say we enjoyed more of the local restaurant scene but it was impossible not to fire up the grill and just kick back and listen to the ocean every night. The house was immaculate and the owners couldn't have been nicer. This home is a keeper and we will be back for sure.
