Enjoy this classic waterfront home with a mooring for your boat (up to 22’)! Spend your days relaxing, or not, watching boats of every kind entering and leaving Sakonnet Harbor; collecting shells and “treasures” from the shore; kayaking, fishing and swimming off the rocks (there is a rope to assist you in getting out of the water); playing sports and games, visiting, reading and napping on the large front lawn; and at the end of the day, enjoying cocktails & cooking out with a dazzling Sakonnet sunset.
The 'Big House' sleeps 7 comfortably in four bedrooms on the second floor: 1 queen with bath, 2 with twins and 1 with a single. The latter three share a full bathroom. A few steps away is the Guest House with 1 king bedroom, 1 bedroom with 2 child sized bunk beds and a full bath.
The first floor of the main house includes a back hall/laundry area, lavatory, kitchen, pantry, sun porch, dining and living rooms. There is cable TV and Internet, a dishwasher, disposal, convection microwave oven and charcoal grill.
Biking is a popular sport, as are running and walking. Two beaches are located less than a mile walk, or bike ride, away and sailing lessons are available from the nearby Sakonnet Yacht Club.
Little Compton is a lovely rural town with every amenity; well provisioned general store (Wilbur’s), a restaurant, bank, post office, library, 3 churches, gas station, liquor store, community center that offers soccer & lacrosse for children, an Art Café that has java, tea etc. and art classes, playground at the Wilbur & McMahon School (very essential if you have small children), a CSA (Wishing Stone Farm) and 2 vegetable stands.
Newport’s historic “Summer Cottages,” such as the Vanderbilt’s “Breakers,” shops and restaurants are less than an hour away and interesting to visit, even if you don’t have a rainy day. Another historic place to visit is New Bedford, an old whaling town with outstanding museums, which is located approximately 45 minutes east of Little Compton.
This house is available April through October for a minimum of one week.
