About the property

Large lot. Great location, Beach Community

Our home is located in the Shelter Harbor Beach Community which is in the town of Westerly, R I

Our house is a three bedroom, two bath with an out door shower.

We have a double lot with a patio off the kitchen for summer entertaining. The house is set up for summer living with a large screened porch as well.

The Shelter Harbor Community has access to a private beach and Salt Pond. A Shuttle Bus runs on weekends that takes residents to and from the Ocean Beach. As a guest you also can enjoy the Salt Pond where kids swim (both Ocean Beach and the Salt Pond have life guards on duty during the day), fish, crab, and in general have a great time. Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts available as well.

As mentioned above our home has three bedrooms, but also another area that can be used for sleeping as well.

Why Alan and Theresa Tracy chose Rhode Island

Our family fell in love with this area of the world a long time ago. There are many beautiful places to spend time in this world, but the Shelter Harbor area has to be on that list.

What makes this house unique

Part of the Shelter Harbor Beach Community makes this home special for us. Our family has been fortunate to spend many pleasant days at the beach or the pond. We find the town of Westerly and the surronding beach communities to be places we want to keep coming back to. Once you experience this area you will want to come back as often as possible. We have been enjoying the area for over sixty years and what makes it special is that it really has not changed that much for all these years. There are many beautiful places in the world, we think that this is one of them.

Charming home in a quiet neighborhood. BUT not clean or well appointed

  • 1 of 5

When I arrived on the evening of the first day I was charmed by the appearance of the home. Then I was shocked at the smell of mildew. Every table surface was dirty, most lamps not plugged in, some with no lightbulbs and a wad of chewing gum behind one lamp. None of the beds were made and I was required to bring my own towels. All dishes, silverware, pots and pans required washing. That night I washed all sofa covers, bed covers, sheets, every table or countertop and even the pillows so that I could welcome family members the next day. I did not feel comfortable sitting on the sofas even after washing the covers because they smelled bad. There is no air conditioning or wifi.

The house is charming and in a beautiful location but really needs updating and a thorough cleaning. I wrote to and spoke with the owners and sent them photos of the state of the house. They decided to return my deposit (normal) and the cleaning fee but did not feel the need to do anything further. They have a beautiful property in a wonderful relaxing location. But it needs serious updating, cleaning and care.

Located in the Shelter Harbor Beach Community this Three bedroom two bath home with out door shower, large yard, patio off the kitchen, beautiful screened porch, is set up for a pleasant summer vacation. The Shelter Harbor Beach Community has access to the Quonnie Pond for swimming, crabbing, etc. Kids love it! As part of this community you also have access to the Weekapaug Barrier Beach. This is a private Ocean Beach for Shelter Harbor Residents. You may chose to take your car or use the free shuttle bus that runs on the weekends all day. A rainy day? take a trip to Watch Hill a few miles away or Newport, R I about thirty miles north. Perhaps a visit to the Casinos about the same distance to the West in Connecticut.

There is plenty to do close by. Many attractions, or perhaps, you wish to simply take a walk thru the Shelter Harbor Community. You will not be disappointed.
