GRANDMA'S QUAINT & QUIET LAKEFRONT DOLL HOUSE COTTAGE

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..

.IF YOU DARE!

Golf Amenities: Gloucester Country Club is located 3 miles east on Route 44. Further information can be provided if needed.

Riding Stables: Riding stables are located on Route 44 west of Chepechet Village, and more info can be provided if needed.

Wright's Farm Restaurant: Wright's Farm Restaurant is located less than 10 miles west of Chepachet Village on Route 44. It is an absolutely huge restaurant that specializes in home style family meals of rolls and butter, salad, roasted chicken, delicious macaroni and homemade sauce and crispy french fries that is all you can eat! Yes! They have banquet facilities and private rooms for family functions, a gift shop, and takeout. A great place to go. Telephone number will be provided. Reservations are recommended.

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!

Rhonda Faria purchased this cottage in 1940

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!

FABULOUS FALL GETAWAY :)

The cottage was every bit as charming as advertised and then some. The location was perfect and the owners couldn't be nicer. They even left us homebaked cookies and all the fixings for smoores - what more could you ask for.

COMFY COZY AND OH SO SWEET!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very lovely time here! It was peaceful and relaxing and just what we needed! While not super close to the main attractions of RI, they were an easy drive away! The deck and fire place out back are enjoyable places to just "be". FYI the muffins and bakery at Dino's grocery were amazing! Thanks Rhonda for sharing your cottage!

A PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for us. It was both cozy and spacious. The setting was beautiful and tranquil, yet close to many larger centers. We appreciated how well appointed it was, and the high standard of cleanliness. The owners provided just the right touch. They were available if necessary, but also respected our privacy. We were grateful for the warm welcome. We would recommend this to any travelers or vacationers.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review, we really appreciate our guests doing that for us when they are safely home, it helps others to be able to choose the perfect location for their vacation. When we rent the cottage we clean it as if we were staying there, so our guests can always be assured of that. The cottage is about one mile from the main road, so it is far enough away yet perfectly close to get whatever you may need or want.
Hoping to meet you again someday!

COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Grandma's Cottage was a great place for us to spend Christmastime! We were looking for a rental close to our 3 daughters' homes in the area so we could visit them and have our own space to relax.....and it was perfect! The owners met us with a plate of delicious cookies when we arrived and were available by phone when we had questions. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, even a little Christmas tree! It was very clean and well maintained. Photos and description were accurate. Cute decor. While we stayed there, we had a snowstorm but were all set with a shovel and broom to clear our car. The lake was beautiful, we watched the snow falling from the front porch window and walked our dog around the neighborhood.
We loved the old fashioned general store, grocery store, coffee shop, and pizza places, all close by. It was a 90 minute drive to Cape Cod. We were allowed to bring our dog, which was important to us. She had her own fenced in back yard to run around in. We recommend this property for a small family who wants to spend some time relaxing. Thank you and Happy New Year to the owners!

VISITING FAMILY IN RI

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time renting a cottage for a vacation to visit my family in RI and it was a wonderful experience. The cottage was just so quaint and wonderful to stay in and seemed so roomy and felt like being home. My husband, myself and our cousin stayed there for nine days and it was wonderful experience for us. We did a lot of running around while there visiting family and doing some sightseeing as well but I wish we could have spent more time at the cottage to take full advantage of the two grills (charcoal and gas) and the fire pit out back. The view is spectacular from the front window of the house and we just didn't want to leave. The owners of the property are just wonderful also. They make you feel like family and went out of their way to rush to the house the morning we were leaving because my husband had left his carry on in the house with his ID and everything he needed to fly. They rushed there to get the house opened for us so that he could retrieve his bag and we got to fly later that day and made it back to San Antonio. I can not say enough good things about the owners and the place. I highly recommend this cottage as a vacation home away from home.

Owner's Response: One of the best things about sharing our cottage with guests, is to be able to meet people from all over the world. We have been lucky enough to have met some of the nicest people, people that really care about our cottage and take the time to look around and explore it. The cottage was built by my Grandfather in the 1940's, and we have several pictures displaying his hard work to make it what it is today. You can just feel the love in it...and we try to make it comfortable for all our guests.
We felt so bad for our previous guests, that their luggage was locked inside, but we were so happy that they were able to travel on home together after all and everything worked out fine.
