This newly remodeled home features a gourmet kitchen that can accommodate multiple chefs. The 10' long granite counter provides intimate seating with views to the patio through floor-to-ceiling windows. The dining area, living room (with 52' flat panel TV) and kitchen flow together due to its open floor plan. A second living room is has cozy couches for reading or socializing. Each of the downstairs rooms can be filled with music from the media center and central air is available in most rooms. This is not a beach house, if you are looking for a nicely appointed casual home - come here! If you are looking for a beach house, keep clicking.
The Master Bedroom, with king bed, is located off the kitchen. The Master Bath features an overhead rain-shower with side body shower tiles as well as a new washer and dryer. A powder room is also located off the kitchen for guest use.
Upstairs are three remaining bedrooms, each with A/C units, and a centrally located full bath.
This quintessential cape is nestled on two manicured acres of lawn and gardens. Bikes, kayaks and beach chairs are at the ready so you don't need to pack them in.

There is something magical about Little Compton - certainly it has kept its old time charm with stonewalls and classic beaches - but it is more that that, something unidentifiable, but there nevertheless. I am an avid bike rider and the riding couldn't be better here, the views constantly take your breath away and make you want to ride again and again. I think everyone would find something wonderful to do here.
Perky Nellissen purchased this house in 1954
This property is near Sakonnet Point, the hub for many summer visitors. Only a 1.5mi from Warren's Point, .5 mi to Sakonnet Golf Club, and 1 mi to Sakonnet Point puts this home right where you need to be.
The house is situated on a quiet street, with beautiful gardens and birds galore. You can walk down the lane, enjoy the other homes and see the water. The house is fabulous - with new bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen to gather around and everyone can help cook. Bright and cheerful, you won't want to leave. A short ride to Newport for shopping and crowd watching can be a fun day.
The Little Compton house is wonderful, and a nice option to a hotel (none available in this quiet farming community). On a private way, you feel in touch with the superb views and removed from the public. The home is comfortable, with many options for gathering ... at the large kitchen island, in the living room, or the windowed L off the dining room. Bedrooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The homeowner is a pleasure.
This house was perfect for us! Even though the main reason for our trip was to attend a wedding in Portsmouth (~30 minutes away), we wanted to find a peaceful, quaint New England town to stay in and reunite as a family. Those of us staying at the house came from Boston, Houston and Denver - a true family reunion! The modern, gourmet kitchen was a real treat to cook our meals in, the great patio with table and chairs was ideal for dining al fresco! My husband, who spent his childhood summers in France said it brought back memories! Our 3-year old son loved running around on the expansive green lawns, watching the birds, chipmunks and the white squirrel "Blanche"! It was also pretty exciting to see wild turkeys our first morning and a coyote our last morning! Overall, we had a fabulous time. The beds are comfortable, especially the master bed, the house is clean and spacious, the yard is serene and the location is near the harbour, beaches and town. Our one wish would be to have a big umbrella installed in the patio table to offer shade while eating outdoors. Little Compton is an undiscovered treasure - no traffic and few tourists yet beautiful scenery, shorelines with a lighthouse, vineyards, art studios, cafés, historic towns and farms... and a perfect home to stay in on Quoquonset Lane!
The picture does not do justice to this property. The location is accurate. The lane is quiet and very private and there is a lovely little walk out the front door with peaceful water views. The house and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is gorgeous and overlooks the pretty patio. There is plenty of room to spread out. The owner is available for any questions and concerns and I would highly recommend this property. There are kayaks available for your use. There is a cute little center with a grocery store and restaurant where all the locals gather. The food is excellent and very reasonable. If interested in more upscale dining the boathouse is a 25 minute drive up to Tiverton. Sakonnet Winery is just up the road. This is a lovely home and I would be a little cautious with very young children as there are many areas where little hands could do mischief. The master is on the first floor but the main entry is not wheelchair accessible. Great property for active teens that like kayaking and biking or just a fun getaway for "girls getaway" that make their own good time.
This tranquil setting in Little Compton provides a relaxing holiday away from the cares, stress, and traffic of the larger cities. It offers many miles of safe walking, bike riding trails, beaches, and a wonderful, caring hostess.
The “downtown” is truly a quaint New England hamlet yet it has a very efficient post office, grocery store, and a quaint coffee house where the locals gather. During the summer months, there are all ages living here.
Our hostess, Perky is quite popular and involved and she was kind enough to introduce us to the local clubs, church, charities, and personalities. We met some very interesting bicyclists, sailors, boaters, and hikers.
If you like to garden, the setting lends itself to enjoying the acreage and the privacy on the lane that is Quoquonsett. Just sitting out on the back patio and enjoying the sun, the flowers, shrubs, and trees in this idyllic setting is extremely relaxing. Time does stand still. Rhode Island is the ocean state. If you go out for a walk, you are surrounded by water.
The newly renovated kitchen and cooking facilities make it a pleasure to stay at home although there are some very good local restaurants. I would recommend the Stone House. Portuguese and wonderful seafood are also available locally. Newport is a forty minute trip if mansions, food and shopping are of interest.
The bedrooms, baths, and air conditioned rooms enhance the experience. We had little need of the air conditioning over the three and one-half months we were living there. The large TV with many stations allows for evenings at home. There is large office with internet facilities, fax, and free use of the telephone.
I would rate this an excellent experience!
My family recently vacationed in Little Compton and could not have been happier with our stay. This spacious home was perfect for our family; with 7 adults, 3 young children and our dogs, we never once felt crowded. Little Compton is a very charming New England town with beautiful ocean views. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to get away from it all for a relaxing vacation.
Beaches, fishing are some of the great attractions of Little Compton. Enjoy many farm stands and local fish.
