About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home is open and airy and located in one of the most desirable summer rental locations on the island--within a 5 minute walking distance to popular Mansion Beach. With a large deck on 2 sides for outdoor dining and two sliding doors that bring in the light and ocean breezes, you will enjoy the open space maximized by the cathedral ceiling of the living/dining area and the skylighted kitchen. The eat-at kitchen counter, the brick fireplace and wide plank floors add to the cozy atmosphere. On the first floor are the master bedroom (queen bed) with master bath, 2nd bedroom with queen bed and 3rd bedroom with 2 single beds, full bath at end of hall. Located on the second floor is one bedroom (queen bed) with skylight and full bath.

This salt box style cottage is located in popular Minister's Lot, a very kid-friendly neighborhood located off beautiful Corn Neck Rd. between the clamming flats at Andy's Way and the nature sanctuary at Sachem Pond and the North Light. Families return here summer after summer to spend their vacations at the beach and with friends they have made in the neighborhood over the years. The open layout of this house, the large deck with outdoor dining, the quick walk down the dirt road to the beach, and the neighborhood of Minister's Lot all contribute to an easy and varied range of summer fun from relaxing on deck to fishing in nearby ponds or staying all day at the beach.

The house has one tv with satellite service/channels, a dvd player, wireless internet service, cell phone reception, washer & dryer, outdoor shower, propane grill, 2 car parking, no A/C (fans avail).

Year Purchased: 1973

About: This home has been in our family for 40 years. What started as a simple summer cottage has now been fully winterized to accommodate our growing family and love for the island which we now visit all year long. While some of us prefer to practically live at the beach during the summer-- swimming,body surfing, boogie boarding, surfing, exploring nearby 'pots 'n kettles' for starfish, periwinkles, etc., evening bonfires, early morning beach strolls, meeting friends that return summer after summer-- there are other family members that prefer to visit in Sept. and Oct. when the birds are migrating, the ocean is still warm, the restaurants are still open, and the crowds are thinner. Our children look forward to coming back to Minister's Lot every summer to reconnect with friends that return every year--the friendships are very special and characterized by the well being generated by healthy outdoor activity, stunning natural beauty, and the lightness of being on vacation.

Why Block Island:
We love our home in Minister's Lot for many reasons: one is because of its proximity to one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen, anywhere. We also love the neighborhood which is comprised of 10 other 'salt box' style cottages spread over 9 acres with a couple of fresh water ponds, lots of trees and shrubs, and open field and lawn to explore. We also appreciate the quiet and charm of living on the northern part of the island-- down 'the neck.' We love walking to Andy's Way to go clamming, to watch the shore birds, fiddler crabs and the sunset,or to wade out to Beane's Point at low tide. Sometimes we kayak from there or meet with friends and go tubing or fishing from their power boats.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Taking early morning walks before breakfast to the beach. Spending all day at the beach and being able to walk back to the house to get lunch provisions and bring back to the family still at beach. Meeting up with the same friends each summer that continue to rent in Minister's Lot--a tradition that's continued across 3 generations. Watching the kids and grandkids on the beach playing with new (and old) friends: flying kites, playing bocce, building sandcastles, playing frisbee & football, walking to 'pots 'n kettles,' exploring the tide pools there, the rocks and shore life, watching the kids body surf, skim board, surf, boogie board, hang out together. Eating dinner on the deck at twilight, cooking outside, seeing the kids run off with friends to fish in the neighborhood ponds, play in the hammock, play tag, whiffle ball, and capture the flag in the fields. Having bonfires on the beach at night and watching the stars and ocean phosphorescence. Having all the sandy kids take outdoor showers before coming inside. Relaxing on the deck under the umbrella with a book.
