Cute cottage by the water

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location of this property. When sitting on the porch you're about 2 yards from the water! The views are stunning. The Matunuck Oyster Bar is incredibly delicious. We had a great time.

Location, Location, Location!

The view from the cottage was beautiful and the location is just perfect! Capt'n Jack's right across the street, is a great spot for dinner. We also walked to the beach, just down the road. We took a day trip to Block Island, where we enjoyed a helicopter tour using Heliblock. We highly recommend it!!! Cottage is also about 30 min. south of Newport. There we enjoyed the Cliff Walk and Ocean Drive. Lastly, we traveled about 45 min. south to Mystic where we enjoy a tour with Mystic Boat Adventures.. Plenty to see and do in the area or just relax at the cozy cottage. My only disappointment was the dock on the property. The description said you could launch your personal kayaks from it, but it was locked as a few boards were missing. Charles offered to fix it, but I didn't want to be a pain. He did tell us about a community launch close by so we thought we'd just use that. Unfortunately, there was about 15 ft of seaweed and other debris (dead seagull included) which made that a less than pleasant option. So if you've planning to bring kayaks for the pond...check on the dock status. Overall a great cottage and I'd recommend it!

The yard, the deck/porch and the view are just incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great and the location was perfect for all the things we love to do, with the beach a 5-minute bike ride away and a wildlife refuge and bike trail both only a 15-minute car ride away. We hope we can go back in the spring or summer.

You Can't Get a Closer or Better View of Potter Pond!

  • 5 of 5

This is a trailer home in a beautiful location, away from Succotash Road and right on Potter Pond. Although there are other homes on both sides, it is very quiet and you are surrounded by garden and shrubs. Almost next door is a classy locavore restaurant, the Matunuck Oyster Bar, and from your deck you can watch them harvesting the oysters and scallops from their growing beds in the pond. We also observed a lot of birdlife-heron and osprey. We enjoyed the garden and saw some nice sunsets! We ate dinner @ Matunuck Oyster Bar and it was delicious. Cap'n Jack's, the restaurant across the street on Succotash Rd. has a fantastic bakery with the largest eclairs ever seen, lobster shaped sugar cookies and lobster cupcakes! The lobster cupcakes are unbelievable! East Matunuck State Beach is lovely and just minutes down the road. In late September there was plenty of parking and no fee. The unit is nicely decorated with plenty of room for the 2 of us. We had some trouble with the louvered windows not wanting to open all the way but my husband improvised with a clothespin on the back bedroom window and we had a nice through breeze from the sliding door on the pondside thru the unit and out the back window. There is an outdoor sink, shower and hose so you can rinse off when you return from the beach. Water pressure and hot water are great. Kitchen was well-equipped. TV and WiFi worked great! Don't know if we were just lucky with the weather conditions but we had no problem with mosquitos, gnats or flies.

Came up here for a weekend and loved our stay here. The house is simple, adorable, well kept and was perfect for a nice relaxing beach weekend. Just a short walk to 2 restaurants and the beach.
