This summer place with its extraordinary private setting, amidst rolling conservation farm land, and its expansive breathtaking ocean view offers unimaginable appeal. It is in essence that quaint 'Sconset cottage without all of the hassle of Cape Cod bridge traffic, island ferry rides and summer's tourist throngs. The charming vintage cottage is, instead, located in the quiet and serenely peaceful area of Fogland. Near a treasured barrier beach, this pet friendly property provides the ideal vacation getaway, for one to three guests. Sleeping accommodations include a king size bed in the master bedroom as well as a twin bed located in the sleeping nook at the at end of the spacious living room. While still within convenient access to the cultural and recreational activities of Newport, Providence and Boston, it is just far enough off of the beaten path.
While on holiday, enjoy all the place and the area have to offer. Plan a late evening picnic, under the stars, on the lovely lawn or within its diminutive enclosed courtyard, gazing at the moon over the Atlantic Ocean directly beyond. Take a short (5 minute) walk to Fogland Beach and there explore the rich variety of marine and bird life along the water's edge, swim, stroll the shoreline collecting seashells, fish, or bring a blanket and bask in the sun. There is a lifeguard on duty (seasonably) during the main portion of the day, boat launch, playground, bathhouse and one of the premier windsurfing locations anywhere.
Just a short (2 miles) drive or bike ride away lies the Tiverton Four Corners, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Once there, enjoy an award winning cone of Gray's ice cream, visit one of the several art galleries, share a meal at the Four Corners Grille or a sandwich, salad and sweet pastries on the Provender's wrap around porch while watching the passersby. Shop for boutique apparel and accessories, fine home goods and artisanal products. Return to the cottage for a secluded rest on the sun porch wrapped in a cooling breeze off of the water.

Lovely cottage in an idyllic setting
We had a great week during our second stay in this cottage. Recommended
Lovely views, comfortable accommodation. Perfect!
It was a charming place and the view to the water beyond the hydrangeas and the
stone walls was just spectacular. We were very comfortable.
Being here was just wonderful! We had the most wonderful time!!
A beautiful property and the house was just fine- with lovely views- near the water. A great place for a quiet week or three
Beautiful bucolic setting
The cottage is set amidst beautiful farm land in quiet, bucolic Tiverton. Fogland beach is just down the road. It is a small beach with a swimming area that is great for young kids. Beautiful Goosewing Beach is about 15 minutes away in Little Compton and is a bigger, more lively beach with nice waves.
The house was clean and we loved the antique lighting fixtures and floors. I especially appreciated the super clean couch and living room furniture. Many vacation houses force you to sit on grungy, gross sofas and chairs. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever had at a vacation house. The house next door is very close which was surprising, but it wasn't much of a bother.
My only real complaint is that there is no washer or dryer and very limited towels and linens. We ran out of bath towels after a few days (we brought our own beach towels) and had to wash the white bath towels and handcloths by hand and hang them to dry which didn't get them very clean. No extra sheets, blankets or pillows, just what was on the beds. There was also only one stand up fan and rooms often got well above 95 degrees. Though there are nice breezes, they just didn't reach inside the house.
A nice review, however I did want to address a couple of the last comments. Washer and Dryer are not provided and as such are "not" listed as amenities.
Linens are provided, but because it's a weekly or longer rental, hotel like services of clean linens daily are not provided, nor are they listed as such. Linens that are provided should be an adequate supply for normal use. Additional pillows and linens are specifically not provided so as not to encourage overnight guest beyond what is allowed in the lease and are appropriate for the time of year.
Unfortunately the uncharacteristically hot (heat wave like) weather conditions experienced during that week are beyond this lessors' control. In many seasons of renting, this is the first mention of this condition, but appreciate the suggestion for an additional fan or two.
This home and especially the property and views is a slice of heaven. The lush grass, water views, and sun room were the perfect getaway, as well as the easy drives to Sakonnet Winery, Tiverton Four Corners and beaches. A walk to Fogland Beach in 5 minutes was perfect too! Clean, comfortable, and breezy home!
We stayed for two weeks, loved it, and are already talking about going back. The cottage is exactly as pictured, it is quaint and really comfortable. The views are spectacular, the privacy is welcome (only one house nearby and it is blocked by plantings), the bed is perfect. Although you have access to the Fogland Beach at the bottom of the hill, Goosewing Beach is the place to go. The seafood available in the neighborhood, not to mention Grey's Ice Cream, makes it a great place for eating--at home. Not a lot of restaurants. The lobster roll at Wilma's down 77 was the best in the area, go figure. Michael was a kind and helpful host. We had the best two weeks possible, a wonderful vacation.
