IDEAL GETAWAY - 3 BEDRMS, 2.5 BATHS, 7 MIN WALK TO BEACH, PET FRIENDLY

Little Compton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Short 3 min drive to beach. Cottage is 1,735 sq ft (161 m2)

Hydrangea Cottage is bright and spacious with an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, large windows and skylights.

Inside: a modern fully equipped kitchen (seating six) opens to a spacious den with large screen TV. The Master bedroom features a gas fireplace with stone hearth, king size bed and intimate lounge area which adds a romantic touch. The Queen size bedroom includes a large built in desk and working area with extensive bookcases, perfect for remote work during your vacation. Twin bedroom is decorated for youngsters and has large double closets. Hardwood floors throughout the house and tile floors in all three bathrooms enhance comfort. Central air and ceiling fans in every room cool even the hottest summer days.

Outside: summer living and entertaining are easy on a half-acre of lawns and gardens with outdoor dining. Sliding glass doors from the Master bedroom and kitchen/den open to a wrap-around deck and expansive stone patio with grill. A raised hydrangea garden encloses the patio and lends color and privacy to outdoor gatherings. A new feature is a large mahogany outdoor shower. Also available are a thornless blackberry and blueberry patch with fruit ripening in the summer for your enjoyment.

The cottage is on a quiet lane in a classic New England rural village sited on peninsula projecting into Narragansett Bay. The area offers magnificent sea views across idyllic pastures, dairies and farms. An easy walk leads to pristine Goosewing Beach, rated one of the top 5 best beaches in New England by Boston Magazine; it is a mile long and perfect for swimming, beach combing, sunning, kayaking and surfing. At night (with permit) one can have bonfires for a clam bake or cookout by the surf. Numerous nearby wildlife preserves, riding stables and nature trials offer bird watching, hiking and biking.

To the West, Newport with it's famous 'gilded age' mansions, well preserved colonial district, numerous boutique shops and art galleries are a wonderful day trip just 35 min. away. Bristol's stately homes and gardens and Colt Park in Warren are delightful and all in easy reach.

To the East, New Bedford, home of largest fishing fleet in New England is just 25 miles and offers superb seafood restaurants, a quaint 18th century town quarter and the renowned Whaling Museum. Ferries leave daily for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island.

To the North in Fall River (25 min. away) is the WWII historic navy sight featuring the battleship USS Massachusetts, WWII PT boats like President Kennedy's, a WWII US submarine a small navy museum and other sights.

Closer attractions include golf courses, canoe and kayak rentals on the Westport River and wine tasting at Sakonnett vineyards. Tiverton Four Corners offers crafts outlets, restaurants, ice cream and art galleries set in historic grist mill buildings on rushing brook. Numerous farm stands offer local produce, especially berries and fruits, as well as fresh fish.

September through mid October is a glorious time at Hydrangea Cottage in Little Compton. There are fewer people on the nearby beaches, the Ocean is at it's warmest, the days are balmy, the nights cool and crisp. The fall harvest fills the shelves of road farm stands. There are no lines for area attractions including the Newport Mansions, historic sites and museums.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Sorry for the lateness of our response but with my work and my wife’s starting right after our return, we really got caught up in a jam, and couldn’t make time to give you an adequate reply.



Of course our stay at your wonderful cottage – plus the little surprises you left us, thank you so much for this very delicate attention – was nothing less than perfect. The setting of the rooms, the space, the number of bathrooms, the kitchen appliances and the living-room, EVERYTHING was so very much comfortable that we will not hesitate to contact you in a near future – perhaps as early as next year – to come back. Furthermore, since it was always sunny – who will complain? – we barely did anything else than go to the beach, enjoy, come back from the beach and relax. We would like to go around next time, even try other beaches since we always went to the same which is of very human proportion.



The towels were nice and soft as was the linen in our beds. The place was immaculate when we arrived and we tried to leave it as immaculate when we left.



So, to be sure, we will renew the experience with our three kids – who by the way are 30, 28 and 25! – as we love to spend one week during summer, just the five of us. Been doing that since the youngest was two, so over 20 years now. And I must say, your place was just one of the best we’ve been at, and by far.



Thank you for making it available.



Have an excellent end of summer!

Delightful and well appointed

  • 5 of 5
Hydrangea Cottage was the perfect spot. In walking distance to Goosewing and a short bike ride to the Town Commons, the cottage offers a great get-away. It was immaculate and charmingly decorated. Everything one might need to be "home away" was available. The owners provided delightful gifts to make one's stay a bit more memorable. (Thank you!) My husband and I both had work to do, and found comfortable spots to write and edit on the sunny deck and patio. The local library was accommodating for printing. The librarian even let me borrow a pair of reading glasses when I realized I had left mine behind! The beach was our greatest draw, but Sakonnet Vineyards, Adamsville and Tiverton Four Corners offered diversions on the very few rainy days we had. The owners clearly take great pride in providing a comfortable stay. We look looking forward to a return visit.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Hydrangea Cottage in Little Compton. We felt right at home from the start. The owners left thoughtful welcome gifts. The beach was a short walk from the house. The nearby Wilbur’s General store provided all the necessities and yummy snacks. The Commons Lunch and A-1 Pizza are two nearby restaurants with great food. The area of Little Compton and Tiverton are charming. We would definitely stay at the Hydrangea Cottage again.

Spacious, Relaxing and Well-Appointed

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Little Compton for years, and this was one of the best experiences we had with a vacation rental. The location was great! We were close enough to walk to the beach with kids in stroller (just under one mile). This was great on the busy weekend when the lot would fill up, and also saved us on parking fees. The home was immaculate, spacious, light-filled, and had very nice outdoor space for a BBQ. The neighborhood was quiet and relaxing. We appreciated all the extras such as the high chair, boogie board, a binder full of information about the area, and some sweet welcome gifts. Linens were provided, which is not the case with many other rentals. We had 4 adults and 2 kids, and we were very comfortable. We went to the beach a lot, took some nice drives, took the kids to some great playgrounds in the area, and just relaxed at the house. It was a wonderful stay!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our two children (ages 6 and 8) and our cat stayed at Hydrangea Cottage for a week in July. Our intention was to stay in-state, thereby cutting down on travel time and costs, and spending most of our time on the beach.
The house was beautiful, spacious, bright and clean. When we arrived, there was a thoughtful welcome note and a few gifts waiting for us. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed. There was more than enough room for the four of us and family and friends that came to visit.
The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We were about a five minute walk from South Shore and Goosewing Beach (which is were we were every day.) At night, we would grill and sit out on the deck or patio. We had a telescope that we set up for stargazing.
Little Compton is a quiet, country town. You will not find any strip malls or McDonalds here. Instead, lots of picturesque rolling hills, ocean views and small shops and restaurants. We went to 'The Barn' for breakfast one morning; it was delicious!
We all agree that this was one of the top five vacations we've taken as a family. We will definitely be coming back again. :)

Perfect location, well maintained house

  • 5 of 5
Great location in the middle of all the best coastal towns in RI and southern MA. Located in a small neighborhood of modest cottages, this house was clean, air conditioned, well maintained and fully appointed with everything you need down to paper towels and dryer sheets. The layout is great with the generous master at one end of the hall, kids rooms midway and the living space at the other end. Everyone was comfortable including our dog. There is a nice deck off the kitchen with a table, umbrella and chairs plus lounge chairs. Then a few steps down is a bluestone patio with a gas grill and more chairs. The flowers around the cottage were in full bloom, lots of blue hydrangeas, and just beautiful. You can tell the owner has taken very good care of this entire property and wants to make her guests feel welcome. She left us a bottle of wine and flowers and a few other things when we arrived. We were surprised and pleased with all of the unexpected 'nice touches' at the cottage (small cooler for the beach, beach chairs, etc.). We did many things during our stay including walking to the nearby beach, driving to Brigg's beach (our sister has membership), eating at all the great restaurants, buying local produce, baked goods and eggs from the farm up the street and even went into Newport on a cloudy day. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to spend time in this special corner of RI. The owner was very attentive and has followed up with us to be sure we enjoyed our stay. A++
