Overview

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!

Lovely week with family at Hydrangea Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I'd honestly be repeating much of what other reviews have said... all in all, we had a marvelous week in Little Compton, thanks to our stay at Hydrangea Cottage. Walking to and on the lovely beach, a couple of nice bike rides, Johnny Cakes at the Commons Lunch, dinner at The Boathouse in Tiverton, cooking up our own meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Comfy rooms and generous spaces inside and out. That our two small "dog-nieces" were welcomed was so appreciated. So many nice details and foresight by the owners show in this lovingly cared for home. We are looking forward to a future stay!

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!
