Rhode Island Monthly magazine ranked Touisset as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Rhode Island.

This romantic two bedroom and one bath summer cottage is located on the pastoral Touisset peninsula, in the community known as Touisset Highlands, a small neighborhood found alongside the Kickemuit River. The home offers a fantastic water view and has easy access to the water with a public right of way path located directly across from the house (see photos). It incorporates modern details with unique custom features, blending rustic, above average finishes with the natural outdoor surroundings. The area is known for being quite exclusive and very peaceful.

The cottage offers guests a quintessential New England vacation experience with a touch of luxury. The home boasts an oversize deck that faces the water and creates a giant outdoor living space. Enjoy your morning coffee or lunch sitting at the bistro table, watching the boats go by. View the sun setting over the water while having a cocktail or dinner. Relax while lounging under the umbrellas on the new deck furniture, a large outdoor sectional sofa and club chair. Catch some sun and just unwind. If your feeling more adventurous, hop in the kayak (4 included) or dig some native clams in one of the areas cleanest rivers!

The cottage is fully furnished and includes: one queen sized bed in the master bedroom and one twin sized bed in second bedroom, T.V. (basic cable) and Apple T.V., linens, towels, kitchen amenities, etc..
We hear it time and time again, 'The house is nicer than the photos!'. Not your typical cottage by the river-the location and amenities set the stage for an ideal summer vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My name is Steven and I'm an interior designer now living in Los Angeles. I've enjoyed spending the last few years renovating my cottage to reflect a sense of what ideal summer living in New England should be- relaxed, casual and in tune with nature. I've had a lifelong appreciation for the water which has influenced the design of the home, as well as the materials I've used throughout the property.

Why the Owner Chose Warren, RI, USA:
I grew up in the house next door. Like many of my neighbors and their returning children, I've acquired a slice of heaven that retains the same environment that was so familiar while growing up. The sounds drifting off the water from the boats passing by, the wildlife that occasionally meanders through the yard and the smell of the salt air mixed with the summer sun are what make this spot in Touisset very special. Living by the water seems to be so conducive to naturally reducing stress. An ever changing view of the tides, great sunsets and the surrounding wildlife and nature are what make the cottage the perfect place to relax and decompress.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Ideal for a relaxing, romantic getaway or vacation home, writer’s retreat. Great for those who love nature, kayaking, sailing, swimming and boating! Experience an endless summer in New England that you won't forget. You may even be lucky enough to see deer, wild turkeys or other local inhabitants of the Touisset peninsula right in your own backyard!
