Chepachet Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 Private bedroom, 1 Queen Futon, 1 Twin Bed,1 bathroom, sleeps 5
The cottage is lakefront and approx. 200 ft. from a Private Town Beach, with 2 lifeguards. It doesn't get any better than this! If you are looking for laid back, relaxing, and just plain, old fashioned comfort, this is the best spot on the lake. There is a large deck in front to enjoy the view, and front & back 3 season porches. The cottage was built in the 1940's by my grandfather, and we have completely renovated the whole house in the past three years. The lake is stocked with Trout by the RI- D.E.M., and is a favorite of Northwest RI fishermen. Located two miles from the cottage is Historic Chepachet Village, a quaint little downtown area, with Brown and Hopkins General Store, which is the oldest General Store in continuous operation. There are also antique shops and restaurants, laundry, a grocery store, and post office. It is also the home of the 'Ancients and Horribles Parade', which is the second oldest Fourth of July Parade in this area next to Bristol, RI.
Chepachet is also historically important, as it was the sight of the Dorr Rebellion, we have several books at the cottage in reference to this famous battle.
We also have some other books that are all in reference to this area of the country that have known to be haunted! The famous Lizzie Borden house in Fall River, MA, is just about 40 minutes away, I have to say, that that it is a very interesting tour, very informative and also said to be haunted! Give it a try..

Our home is considered a 'Family Heirloom' by my grandparents, just step in and feel the love! We cherish and take the utmost care of this cozy home, and you will too!
This home is exceptionally sparkling clean, we pride ourselves in keeping it absolutely immaculate!
My family has owned the property for this house for over 70 years. We have enjoyed countless family cookouts, swimming and just relaxing, or going to the famous Fourth of July Parade downtown.
Our own Grandchildren love the porch swings on both front and back porches...and I am sure my Grandparents would be so proud of all the updates we have made...with love!
Get away from it all, but your still close enough to grab your morning coffee from Dunkin Donuts, less than 1 mile from the house!
A little piece of Heaven!
