"If you're looking for something fancy & modern, this is not for you. If you want a place that is welcoming, makes you feel at home & relaxed, this is it. View of salt pond is clear of any houses & dock is 500 yds. from steps. Beautiful stars & pounding of waves heard. Very clean & maintained. Owner puts in love with flowers, veggie plot & herbs. Always available to answer questions. I selfishly did not want to write my best review ever because it's a slice of heaven there, but had to share to be fair to others who want to make special memories. We ate at Champlin's Seafood Restaurant that local residents recommended as the freshest & best. The seafood was excellent & the view by the water wonderful. Also ate at the Chinese Buffet in Westerley. Sushi & hot meals made to order, endless buffet, helpful & friendly, only $15! Bike ride to Charlestowne Beach less than 10 min. Drive about same. Did some crabbing & fishing off dock. Visited Umbrella Factory that had interesting & local items. Feed friendly chickens & see other animals. Kids will enjoy as much as adults. Kayaks + available. They deliver & pick up. Went to Peaches Fruit & Produce on beach road numerous times. Amazing Oct. corn--maybe better than the silver queen we grew down south this summer. Fresh breads delivered daily--get there early or forget about it. Merlot wine steak sauce out of this world & onion blossom horseradish dip and so much more. Don't forget their great pies & pastries. 1 review said they were very rude--if so, then he must have been obnoxious & they didn't want his kind of business. They were wonderful to us & put up with my joking & asked 2nd visit about seeing our grandson for 1st time and how things were going in SC with our family & land after the hurricane hit. No matter where you go, how rich you are or aren't, the locals deserve your respect. Most make some extra money during tourist season, but do just fine without it. And most are happy when tourists go home & stop speeding through their neighborhoods, so they can safely let their children ride tricycles/bicycles & walk their dogs again. I hope you will publish the last part as people need to be reminded to respect where they visit. There was so much more to be seen there. When we go to RI next, Anita's cottage is the only place for us."
