About Tim Tolman
Tim and Martha have been coming to Westport for over thirty years and decided it was time to start their own story. Tim Tolman had a career as a very early adopter of computer graphics, digital video, 3-D animation, digital marketing, and more conventionally, political advertising and strategy. He was a part time faculty member at RISD for over twenty years, teaching digital design for print and screen, and and now is a full-time painter and cook. He may be on site working in his studio, welcomes visitors and is more than willing to give some simple cooking tips. Martha Torrance is an organization development consultant working in the public and nonprofit sectors in MA, RI and VT and in the private sector both in the US and Europe. Her work focuses on strategic planning, leadership development and executive coaching, as well as team training and development. Both Tim and Martha are avid lovers of outdoors and have a deep appreciation for the vibrant farming community and fascinating culture that is Westport. Our permanent home is 30 minutes away, so we are readily available to our renters.

Why Tim Tolman chose Westport
Shoreland Farm is accessible to all that Westport has to offer. The house is big, comfortable, and newly renovated, with a great kitchen for gathering, a big living room for gathering, an outside deck for gathering - and plenty of spots to disappear. There also are plenty of outdoor spots to wander. If you like to cook, there's a 48' commercial stove and an outdoor grill. Or if you would rather just pick up food, Lee's Market has an amazing selection of delicious prepared food, an attached wine and liquor store and there are many other spots for take out or dining out.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Come enjoy a newly renovated 1880's Victorian farmhouse with a very fresh and open feel. You will enjoy the grounds and the porch, but the whole of Westport - including Horseneck Beach - will be your outside experience. The interior space of this home is truly comfortable and provides multiple gathering spots as well as places to go for quiet rest. The owners believe you will find everything you need. Additionally their beautiful 2 bedroom barn can be rented with the farm house for several different week periods during the summer so you can have an entire compound for your gathering. If you're interested please inquire when you request your reservation.

Great house for large family vacation
We have stayed in a number of different rental properties in Westport over the last 10 years and this house ranks right at the top of the list for us. It comfortably accommodated our large party of adults and kids. The location is convenient to everything in the area, the house is well stocked with necessities and extras (foosball/ping pong/wifi), and we were very happy with everything.
Beautiful property,very clean and comfortable.lots of room for our famly of 9.
Well kept lovely retreat for a busy wedding weekend
My family of 5 were visiting Westport Point for my niece's wedding. This beautiful Victorian Farmhouse is well appointed but maintained well in it's Victorian culture. Because of our busy wedding schedule, we were unable to lounge on the beautiful wrap around porch or make best use of the beautiful family room/kitchen addition, but the 3 showers (one outdoors that my daughter-in-law greatly enjoyed) allowed us to ready for the wedding events with ease. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, the house was immaculately clean, and Westport has a lovely quiet beauty. Never met Tim, but he left behind a phone number for questions. No need to contact. Hope to return someday when we can just chill out on the porch.
Property with both houses worked really well for our large family
We were very pleased with the properties. It was clean and very well equipped. The only thing that didn't work well were the two air conditioning units - one you had to watch to be sure it didn't leak and the other didn't pump out much cold air. Most nights cooled off so that they weren't necessary. We would go back.
Great house in a great town! Perfect for families
My family of 9 (5 adults, 2 preschoolers, and 2 toddlers) had a great experience in Westport. The house was a wonderful size and we really enjoyed the kitchen space and the large porch. Tim was very easy to contact and was quick to resolve an internet issue that we had during the week. All the rooms have AC which we appreciated as it got pretty hot while we were there. We spent a lot of time at the beach which is a 5 minute drive away from the house. The house did not provide beach towels or beach chairs/umbrellas so we had to purchase and bring a lot of that with us which wasn't ideal, but we made do. Overall we really enjoyed our visit and would definitely come back to stay here!
Awesome property - close to beaches - beautiful small new england town!
I booked this property for a Memorial Day stay with my immediate family, and celebrated my husband's birthday with extended family at the house on Saturday night. It was a fantastic venue - plenty of space, great yard for the kids, huge back porch for dinner (we seated 13 for lobster). The layout inside was perfect as well - the huge kitchen, separate dining/living area and upstairs play space gave everyone room to spread out. The house is in great shape for an old farm house. Clearly, it's been updated recently but in a way which still maintains it's charm. The owner was great to work with! We absolutely will rent the property again if we have the chance!
Wesport is not crowded, and easy to get to from Boston or Providence. It is surrounded by water for fantastic sailing, boating, paddling, fishing, and swimming on the beach. Additionally, there is great biking to local farms, the winery, the brewery, a high end art gallery and gift store or to the adjacent communities of Tiverton or Little Compton, RI.
The Back Eddy is five minutes from our house and was brought back to life by Chris Schlesinger - the James Beard award-winning chef. He's moved on, leaving it to his head chef Aaron. It has an amazing array of fresh seafood and produce with impeccable service. Additionally, there are many nearby conservation lands with walking trails for picnics or bird watching. Also, farmers markets every weekend and gallery tours twice a summer. If you are seeking a place to unwind, unhook, and slow down to a pace that will restore your inner self, Westport is a great place for you!
