Waterfront home with a spectacular view on a 1+ acre lot with a large, manicured lawn and a private foot dock to one of Rhode Island’s famous salt ponds. Ponder, as we fondly refer to it, has a wonderful enclosed porch overlooking Winnapaug Pond with expansive ocean views. The pond offers a unique venue for kayaking, sailing, swimming, birding and fishing, with breach way access to Block Island Sound.

Just 35 minutes to Newport.

There is a public golf course, the Winnapaug Golf Club, located within walking distance, and multiple public tennis courts can be found in the area.

The house has a large living room that opens to the enclosed porch and a combined kitchen/dining room that overlooks the pond.

Four bedrooms:

• Upstairs master bedroom with king and en suite bathroom

• Second upstairs bedroom with single bed

• Downstairs room with two single beds (that can be made into a king bed)

• Downstairs room with full sized bed

Two full baths, one with a shower and one with a bath/shower, and one half bath.

Ponder is jointly owned by three branches of a family that shares a love of the Rhode Island sea coast. While we call a total of nine different states 'home' between us, we all treasure the time that we can spend at Ponder. We have all had wonderful times here, celebrating weddings and birthdays, and just enjoying time with family and friends. Many of us have fond memories of getting our first gold ring on the Watch Hill carousel, or attending concerts and fireworks in the Westerly park. And we all have spent many hours relaxing on the many beautiful sandy beaches available in the area.

Ann purchased this house in 1997

Some of us were raised in Westerly and have known the area and all it has to offer for our entire lifetimes. Others have come to know it more recently. We all agree that it offers the perfect blend of natural beauty and quiet, as well as lots of activities and things to do for people of all ages.

In addition to an amazing location, this house is very comfortable and offers all of the conveniences of home. You can spend your time relaxing and reading on the sun porch, enjoying a cup of coffee on the back steps overlooking the water, or taking advantage of all of the activities that its waterfront location allows. The large grounds provide plenty of space for children to run around and play. The well-equipped kitchen allows you to easily cook and eat in, if you wish. The pass to the Dunes Beach, which comes with the weekly rental, makes it easy for you to park right at the beach.

What a pleasure to rent this charming home with it's magnificent view on the pond. We spend all of our free time in the sunroom and dining room area taking in the ambience and watching the variety of birds. The house is well stocked with everything needed for a user friendly stay. Beaches were also great with plenty of good seafood spots nearby. We would definitely return.

The property was exactly as advertised. Clean, quiet, and an excellent location. Very relaxing and great wildlife viewing on the pond. Could even hear the surf at night and we were fortunate enough to have several fireworks shows we could view from the back lawn.

Played golf at Winnapaug Golf Club and I would recommend it. Soupy pizza from Pizza Lady was the biggest hit food-wise, but there are so many great restaurants we love: Daniel Packer Inne (Noank), Zack's (Stonington), The Bridge (Westerly), Abbot's (Noank. Do not miss a chance to get out on the water. We did the Mystic Whaler lobster dinner cruise.

Heading to a wedding in Watch Hill and not wanting to be amongst the hub bub of it all, but at the same time wanting to be close enough so it wasn't a "trip" to attend the wedding festivities..we found Ponder! What a wonderful, pleasant, charming place to come home to each day...it felt sooo like coming home. My grandson so enjoyed fishing off the dock...and was excited to see the horseshoe crabs! It was the perfect location to take in all the southern coast of Rhode Island and Connecticut has to offer. Rhode Island beaches, Watch Hill, old downtown Westerly all within a few minutes drive. We shopped in the antique shops in downtown Westerly; and watched the solstice sunset at the Watch Hill lighthouse. We ate the most incredible authentic thai food at a restaurant in Connecticut, which was less than an hour's drive, explored the Historic Ship Nautlis museum in Groton, CT and ate at the infamous Lenny and Joes Fishtales in Westbrook, CT. The golf course is basically across the street and provided a wonderful morning two (2) mile walk/run around its perimeter, down the drive way and past the wild bunnies, blue jays, cardinals, gophers, chipmunks and squirrels...not to mention the maticulously manacured lawns and gardens around the golf course. The house is equipped with all anyone could want, and meals at the dining room table with the incredible view of the pond gazing back. A very comfortable and quaint New Englandy home. Perfect for our family's get together! We will surely meander back to Rhode Island again some day and Ponder will be our place to stay! Thank you so much Ann.

We had a perfect stay at this wonderful home. Ponder is a home that is truley loved and that love comes through loud and clear. We enjoyed the quiet and the privacy. No jet skis, no loud noices - just nature to "interupt" the quiet. My husband caught a bass right off the dock.

The rooms are all a good size and the vew from the dining room table is just lovely.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Enjoyed the wildlife on the pond and the singing of the many birds. The house is very comfortable....Last night the pink clouds reflected in the water were a sight to see.
