About the Property

1 bedroom cottage with loft on cove at end of private lane. A true get-away!

Rejoice and rejuvenate in this tiny slice of paradise. This newly-constructed cottage (built in 2011) is situated at the end of a private lane, directly on a cove. From the old stone wall in front, it’s literally a stone’s throw to the ocean. To the right of where your stone lands is a rocky shoreline (fishing!), to the left is a pebbly beach (swimming!), and within hiking distance around the points on both sides (beach combing!) are large sandy beaches (sand castles!). A small stream flows into the cove. Less than two miles by road from South Shore Beach.

The cottage has one bedroom, living/dining room with futon sleep couch, galley kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, one full bathroom (shower), an outside shower, an unfurnished loft that can sleep three, screened porch, and gas grill. We are your neighbors and appreciate reasonably quiet renters.

Come listen to the ocean, admire the stars, walk along the shore, read a novel and feel the wind. The way vacation used to be.

PLEASE NOTE: In June, July and August we rent only by the week. In May, September and October we'll consider 4 to 6 night rentals on a case-by-case basis.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning/pet deposit $100
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $400
  • Tax Rate 8%

Notes:

The cleaning/pet deposit is fully refundable. The cottage will be professionally cleaned, but our intention is for renters who leave cottage in good condition to not be charged. We used to have a separate and refundable $100 pet deposit for our guests with pets but decided to reduce the number and total expense of deposits by combining the cleaning and pet deposits. We also reduced the refundable security deposit to $400.

In front of house or South Shore (public beach)

Car: Recommended

* Enjoy long beach walks on South Shore and Goosewing beaches: hike around the rocky point to the left or drive to South Shore public access. Goosewing is managed by the Nature Conservancy. In where-to-go-and-what-to-do, pvsbond writes: 'one of the most beautiful, peaceful and unspoiled spots in all of Rhode Island. The beach is managed by The Nature Conservancy, which safeguards it from development. The wide, half-moon, sandy beach is backed by marshland, rolling green fields and a salt pond that's great for exploring.'

* Hike around the rocky point to the right and discover another vast expanse of sand at Briggs Beach (road access is private).

* Historic Little Compton Commons features the Art Cafe (excellent coffee, pastries, art), Wilbur's store (groceries to hardware...'if they don't have it, you don't need it'), the Commons Lunch (serves breakfast, lunch and dinner), Brownell Public Library, the Community Center, a wonderful kids playground, A1 Pizza, liquor store, gas, post office, and the old cemetery where you can find many an old stone and interesting story, including the stone of Elizabeth Pabodie, said to be the first child of the Mayflower (the eldest daughter of John Alden and Priscilla).

* Many farm stands with delicious native corn and vegetables.

* The Little Compton Historical Society's Wilbur house Museum is open to the public; they also offer walking tours of Sakonnet point several times a summer.

* Watch the commercial fishing boats come in at nearby Sakonnet Point and buy your choice right off the sorting line there. Or pick up fresh lobster. Then hike out on the long stone breakwater or observe the lighthouse and islands.

* Crowthers restaurant is four miles to the East. Another three miles takes you to historic Adamsville, home of the Rhode Island Red (chicken); three more miles to Lee's Supermarket in Westport.

* The best home made ice cream in the region is Grays, nine miles up the road at Tiverton Four Corners, where you'll also find fine art, antiques, and craft shops.

* Kayak rentals are available at Osprey Sea Kayak Adventures (at the head of the Westport river, about 12 miles from Little Compton).
