Spend your vacation soaking up the sun and swimming at Central Beach, a pristine private beach, play a game of tennis, set your kids free on their bikes to explore our kid-safe community, or curl-up around the fireplace with a good book. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf; wake to songbirds.
The open floor plan accommodates an active family while the private deck and backyard offers a swing, badminton, a flower garden, herbs/hopefully vegetables,raspberry and blueberry bushes and plenty of room to relax, play or toss a ball to your dog. The living room features a fireplace, comfy club chairs and sectional sofa for lounging and snoozing. There's a diverse family library of books, games and CDs for your whole family's pleasure. The dining room table is set for eight, but can easily fit more by bringing in some additional chairs from the sun room dining area. The kitchen is well appointed with a gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and a full complement of cookware and dishes. A cozy corner chair in the kitchen is a perfect spot for reading or having a cup of coffee.

We have a full size 2 car garage housing a foosball table, a second refrigerator, beach chairs and umbrellas, kites,beach toys, fishing gear, bikes and oddities found in summer garages.
Our home is perfectly located: a 5 min walk to the beach or you can park in the private lot, 3 mins. brings you to private Central Beach tennis courts, playground and softball field where supervised pick-up games for kids and teens, followed by the infamous Old Goats vs Young Men, are played every weekend. Drive, walk or bike 5 mins. to our private community boat dock, parking and launching area on Quonnie Pond. This is by far the most beautiful place to enjoy a cocktail, while your kids crab/fish/clam, your dog swims and the sun sets. We keep a well-loved Sunfish on the boat rack for you to enjoy. This is the spot to launch your kayaks to explore Quonnie Pond, wade out to fly fish or clam for steamers and littlenecks (license required). We have a mooring a short distance from the landing.
There are 2 farm stands at the top of the road; one is organic; both are excellent. Every Friday there's a local Farmer's Market at the Church in Charlestown featuring local fruits/vegetables, dairy products, oysters, clams and farm-raised beef, chicken and pork.
Local Quonnie kids can provide fresh caught fish and clams, babysitting and dog-walking. There are many nearby stores and boutiques to take care of your every need. Area restaurants are known for their variety of flavors.
We are close to many golf courses, Watch Hill, Newport,Monhegan Sun and Foxwoods,Mystic Seaport and Aquarium. Amtrak services near-by Westerly, ferries to Martha's Vineyard, Block Island and Long Island are all within 45 min. as is T. F. Green Airport (PVD).
Even though RI is the smallest state, you'll never have enough time to do everything the area has to offer. The great news is that there is so much nearby so you need not venture far from Quonnie for anything! This is why my grandfather came to Quonnie and why we and so many families return every year.
