"My husband, 25 yr. old daughter, and I stayed in the cottage with another couple for a weekend beach getaway. Located in a private community, called Shady Harbor, on what locals call Quonny Pond, the neighborhood has the quintessential look and feel of a shore neighborhood, perfect for ambling and strolling about. The cottage was charming, immaculate and the perfect base to enjoy the private beach, only 5-10 mins. away, plus nearby Westerly, one of our favorite towns in Rhode Island. The cottage comes with a guest pass to the beach and the host provides the essential amenities: chairs along with a medley of "playthings" that are kept in the garage. We started each morning with a visit to a must-stop, Dave's Coffee Shop, located only mins. from the cottage. In addition to the superb coffee, be sure to treat yourself to their generous and delicious muffins. When we weren't at the beach, we spent time cycling on the lovely roads both in/around the shore and also thru Burlingame State Preserve, visiting a craft beer brewery in Westerly and also relaxing at the cottage, over a perfect summer meal. Using the gas grill provided by the host, our meal was complemented by fresh picked corn from a farm right around the corner All in all, we enjoyed a wonderful summer getaway at 19 Lou Ave."
