We both grew up summering in the area and have deep roots and lots of family in the area. We have an unimproved cabin on property nearby where we stay in the summer and spend our time in this cottage in the winter.
Owner purchased this House in 1999
Why Owner chose Charlestown
The lakes on the north side of Rt 1 in South County are glacial kettle holes - in the glacial morraine - it is a very special place with beautiful pristine beaches nearby. Watchaud Pond is clean and surrounded by preserved land. Charlestown is very un-commercial - we love the peacefulness year round.

Perfect place for our family reunion!!
We could not have been happier with this Lakefront Cottage. It was the perfect spot for our family and our dogs to unwind and enjoy all this location on Watchaug pond has to offer. The cottage is located on a quiet lane that is steps away from the very large pond! It was so convenient to be able to access the water for swimming and relaxing.We had everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable, great beds, 2 bathrooms, ample living space and well equipped kitchen. It was very quiet and peaceful also. We would love to return next year!! Thanks Todd and Liz!!
Thank you for a lovely review!
Come back any time -
peaceful lowkey getaway
Great comfortable cottage for small family.
perfect place for a low key getaway
This house was just perfect for our casual family gathering this summer! We had kids and adults and all ages enjoyed the lake, the comfortable and no frills home, and the beaches nearby. SO nice to have the lake just 50 feet from the front door on days when the beach parking lot was full and/or lifeguards wouldn't allow swimming in the ocean! We also enjoyed the backyard and patio for bubble blowing, kickball, grilling, etc. Outdoor shower is a nice feature (not enclosed for privacy but has hot/cold water, and hidden behind the house).
This is not a house for very tall people - ceiling fans are frighteningly close to your head if you're above 5'10". Kitchen was well stocked, beds comfortable enough for a rental house, two bathrooms a HUGE plus, a surprising amount of "living" space even on a rainy day. We had a wonderful stay and will be back!
Thank you for your kind word and 5 star review!
Weekend on the lake
Nice place just steps away from lake. Roomy has all the amenities needed for a extended stay. Ocean Beaches and parks are just minutes away. Only negative is retaining wall at driveway but no big deal. Will stay again .
On the list! Trying to figure out the best way to address that retaining wall - cement, rail road ties, stones, tiered.....any suggestions? Every year we do a "big project" - the septic last year, slider in the kitchen the year before - would love to add a great room on the front of the house with a fireplace - all in time! Thank you for a 5 star rating!
Great getaway spot
Spent a long weekend here while in town for a wedding. Cute older house in a great location. Loved walking around the lake & sitting on the screened in porch drinking my morning coffee with the beautiful view. The furniture & beds were all very comfy, it was just like being at home, except more relaxing. Great restaurants nearby & close to the beaches, I loved it & can't wait to go back for a longer trip!
The owners were also very responsive & helpful. My family all really enjoyed their stay.
A good gathering place for family
The lakeside cottage was a perfect place for us and a few other family members while we were in Westerly for a wedding. We especially enjoyed the screened porch looking out on the pond. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay!
