About Lauren Classey

My husband and I purchased a small cottage on Pond Street in Charlestown in 1995. We fell so in love with the location, area, sunsets, views and more but did grow out of our little cottage (with 3 small children growing), so we purchased the property next store! We have two houses on this property (both with the private dock, 3/10's of a mile to the beach). We spend most of our time just taking in the views, the sunsets, kayaking, shellfishing, bird watching, walking the beach and relaxing calling this our 'little piece of paradise'. We have been renting our cottages since 1995 and happen to have a few openings this year as a result of a few of our long time renters having grown children now and evolving summer plans.

Lauren Classey purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Lauren Classey chose Charlestown

We chose this location because of the beautiful sunsets on Ninigret Pond and its proximity to the ocean as well as surrounding areas to visit. The private dock and entrance to Ninigret Pond couldn't be more convenient and the unobstructed views of the water, boats, wildlife and sunsets are phenomenal. Charlestown is 10 - 15 minutes away from Misquamicut, Narragansett, University of Rhode Island, Point Judith - Block Island Ferry, Wakefield and Wickford (a cute little seaside town) and 20-30 minutes to Stoninington, CT, the Newport Bridge, Foxwoods Casino, TF Green Airport, Mystic Aquarium and Providence. It's just a really great location!

What makes this cottage unique

We and our guests enjoy kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, shell fishing, blue crabbing, bass fishing, surf fishing, walking on the beach, biking, beaching, cocktail hour on the deck watching the sunsets, reading, listening to the birds, floating in the pond, sitting in the dock, sitting on the deck, lawn games, local restaurants, Ninigret Park (where there are tons of things going on such as free weekly summer concerts, Frosty Drew Observatory, disc golf, nature trails, festivals and more), hunting for seashells and heart shaped rocks, General Stanton's weekend flea markets, Friday farmers market, all the unique little boutique's in the area as well as tons of golf courses nearby. We also enjoy the proximity to the Block Island Ferry, the fresh seafood either caught in Ninigret Salt pond or getting it from the boats in Galilee.

Piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to this beach house for the last few years with my girlfriends. I want to thank the owners, Mike and Lauren, for sharing their little piece of heaven. I always find the house to be clean and very welcoming like a home away from home. No matter if I stay on or off season it's always an enjoyable experience. The pond is a beautiful gem whether fishing,kayaking, or simply enjoying the beautiful view and sunsets. I can't wait to return this spring.

Peace and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to this cottage for the last ten or so years. I usually go for a weekend in the spring with my girlfriends and then in the summer or early fall with my family. My favorite time of year here is the early fall. The days are warm, the sunsets are amazing and the stars in the night sky are breathtaking. I love sitting out on the spacious deck enjoying my morning coffee, reading a book or just watching the birds. I also love exploring the pond in the kayaks (my five year old nieces favorite activity)! The beach is within walking distance which is a huge plus in the summer. Westerly and Newport are just short drives from the cottage too. I am so glad I found this property and couldn't ask for anything more perfect then the time I spend here.

Fantastic week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting this beach house for the past 3 years and I can't wait to return again this year. The location is perfect, right on the salt pond and an easy short walk to the beach. The front deck is my favorite spot, I like to go get coffee from the bakery (1 mile away) and sit on the deck in the morning and watch the water. The owners take great care of the property and they recently updated the outsdoor shower and the lake is great for kayaking. I really can't say enough about this cottage.

Love it!!!

  • 5 of 5

This July will be my 4th or 5th summer returning to this cottage and each time I enjoy and love it more! It is clean and comfortable, especially with air conditioners in each bedroom. But more than that, it is just amazing to sit on the deck in the early morning or as the sun sets and enjoy the wonderful view of the pond as the sun's rays hit the water. Then it is time to enjoy one of the excellent restaurants in the area. Thank you for many wonderful memories!!

New England Charm

  • 5 of 5

Having grown up in New England, I try to get there as often as I can and Charlestown is my favorite place. I found this cottage on VRBO and it was everything We were hoping for and more. This cottage provides the ambience, comfort, fabulous views and is truly a great location. Not only is it right on the water, but it's proximity to so many other things like the ocean, good restaurants (one right on the beach road) tons of nature trails, music festivals and more make the location perfect too. We found this cottage to be clean and cozy with views from inside and out (and the outdoor shower is awesome). It's a great place to relax, have fun (we took the kayaks out all the time) and enjoy nature. Oh and the Rhode Island night sky is amazing! We had a wonderful time here, our home away from home.
