The SpaceLovely contemporary cottage available for weekend getaways, holiday weeks, New England summers, and cozy fall/winter excursions in front of the fireplace. We just recently completed a complete renovation to the highest standards. Panoramic westerly water views and Sunsets over the Sakonnet River from the master bed balcony. Great artwork, funky antiques, granite/stainless kitchen, claw foot tub, two custom baths, two gas fireplaces, antique pine flooring, vintage radiators, and cool custom/vintage materials give this cottage a clean, contemporary and interesting feel.
We are new to the vacation home market so don't have many reviews, but there are more here: (website hidden)
The best feature of this home is a grand 30 x 15 Master suite featuring a built-in fireplace, king size bed, gorgeous private bath, and french doors to a mahogany balcony overlooking the Narragansett Bay. The Master Suite is the entire 2nf floor, thus the lower level has smaller rooms, with a 20 x 12 kitchen/living area, a bedroom with bunk bed (double mattress on the bottom, single on top), a sitting/tv/reading room (with daybeds), and a great custom bathroom. There's a mahagony front porch, vintage cobblestone patio, and a fantastic hot/cold mahogany outdoor shower. The rear deck has a gas grill and dining table.
Its not a party house, its a tasteful little cottage, ok for entertaining in the summer but smallish for winter indoor dinners of more than 4 adults. I think the house is a perfect romantic weekend getaway any time of the year, or great retreat for a young family. Fall and winter getaways are especially nice with two gas fireplaces for warmth and ambiance, high-density foam insulation that keeps the keeps the house cozy, and old-fashioned hot water cast iron radiators that provide awesome heat.
Little Compton is a charming New England seaside town that has maintained it colonial charm through three centuries. Stone walls, pastures, farm stands, fresh seafood, sandy beaches, nature walks are abundant.
This is from a 7/28/13 story in the Providence Journal:
"What the state’s historical commission wrote in a survey report about the town in 1986 remains true today: “Isolated and remote, Little Compton has been relatively free from the political pressures or economic forces that have transformed much of the rest of Rhode Island into a dense, urban and suburban metropolis.”
“The town’s resistance to change — at first a result of its isolation, later due to deliberate decisions — has preserved a remarkable legacy,” the report added. “... Little Compton presents an idyllic picture, complete with rolling topography, a quiltwork pattern of stone-wall-bounded farms and woodland, complemented by marshes, saltwater ponds, barrier beaches, a rocky promontory at Sakonnet Point, old farm complexes, comfortable summer houses, winding roads, and tree-lined villages.”
Newport is appx 30 minutes away, Providence or Boston an hour or so. Walk to the beach at the end of our street, or a short drive to numerous other beaches, nature trails, the town commons, Sakonnet Vineyards, Christmas tree farms, artists studios and antique shops.
Includes: Linens, towels, cookware, a couple of televisions, loads of dvds and books; coffee maker, nespresso machine, WiFi. Bring your suitcase, bike, kayak, or running shoes and you should be fine! Guest AccessThere is a small and secluded beach at the end of our street - a 2 minute walk. Its on the bay, so there is very little wave action and thus perfect for young children. Interaction with GuestsI'm in Providence about 30 minutes away and available to assist if anything arises, but otherwise the cottage is private and all yours :) The NeighborhoodIts a great location close to almost everything the area has to offer. The secluded mostly private beach at the end of the street is a real bonus, esp if you have young children and don't want to pack the car for a day at the beach Getting AroundIf you are fit, a bicycle will get you to the town commons, the beach, farm stands, and cafes, but a car is definitely recommended. Fantastic rural roads for biking and running, and nature trails and seaside walks are abundant. Other Things to NoteThe master suite upstairs is fully half the house, with a king bed, bathroom, private balcony, fireplace, and lots of open, airy space. The other bedroom downstairs is small, and shares the 1st floor with a second bathroom, Living Room, Kitchen, and TV/Sitting room. It has a bunk bed with double mattress on the bottom and single on top. Perfect for children, or maybe, possibly 2 smaller adults. I get a lot of inquiries for 2 couples, and don't really think the house is well-suited for that given the disparity in bedrooms and the small size of the downstairs bedroom.
