Little Compton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom cottage with loft on cove at end of private lane. A true get-away!

Rejoice and rejuvenate in this tiny slice of paradise. This newly-constructed cottage (built in 2011) is situated at the end of a private lane, directly on a cove. From the old stone wall in front, it’s literally a stone’s throw to the ocean. To the right of where your stone lands is a rocky shoreline (fishing!), to the left is a pebbly beach (swimming!), and within hiking distance around the points on both sides (beach combing!) are large sandy beaches (sand castles!). A small stream flows into the cove. Less than two miles by road from South Shore Beach.

The cottage has one bedroom, living/dining room with futon sleep couch, galley kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, one full bathroom (shower), an outside shower, an unfurnished loft that can sleep three, screened porch, and gas grill. We are your neighbors and appreciate reasonably quiet renters.

Come listen to the ocean, admire the stars, walk along the shore, read a novel and feel the wind. The way vacation used to be.

About Doug and Lisa Levey

Cottage built in 2011 on the site of our great great great uncle's fishing shack, near our grandmother's house. We grew up spending most of each summer enjoying this wonderful piece of shoreline.

Our family of three had a magical week in this lovely place. We quickly developed some new routines: picnic dinner at the beach, shopping for local meats and produce at nearby Wishing Stone Farm, and blueberries in every possible meal (from a local pick-your-own place). It's a quiet, beautiful, private spot that we can see going back to again and again.

The cottage itself is perfect: everything we needed and nothing we didn't. The washer and dryer were modern front-loaders that made short work of our laundry, the kitchen was supplied with what we needed for making simple meals, the bed was comfy, and our six-year-old loved the sleeping loft.

The beach in front of the cottage was better for exploring than swimming, but we had some great swims at nearby South Shore Beach/Goosewing Beach.

The village of Little Compton had a lovely nature walk-- The Dundery Brook Trail, which would be great even for tiny kids and folks with mobility issues, as it's a sturdy boardwalk through the woods.

We loved our stay...

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, especially in the quiet space of early October. This visit, we bicycled to Atlantic Avenue in Westport, MA, walked the rocky shore to the north and the south of the cottage, and enjoyed lunch and wine tasting at Sakonnet Vineyards on a gorgeous fall day. The Maus Haus is a fine location for day trips to Newport, Providence, or Bristol, RI or New Bedford, MA. The out-of-the-way location is perfect for dog owners who want to walk their dogs along the shore. It's a perfect spot for families with children five and older, who will love sleeping in the loft.

The bedroom is on the first floor tucked behind the kitchen. As adults, we could not stand up in the loft. Think of a long tent... Regardless, I love tents and would enjoy sleeping in that space.

Peaceful oceanfront gem!

  • 5 of 5

Spent time first week of September in this sweet cottage appointed with anything one would need...linens, towels, fully stocked kitchen, grill. Views are breathtaking, especially sunrise which we experienced frequently. Screen porch was our favorite room. Wonderful ocean breezes all the day. So nice and quiet, felt like it was our private beach!

Lovely area to go for walks. Quaint and sweet neighborhoods.

Owner, Doug, a great communicator, who answers any questions anyone might have and wants people to enjoy this slice of heaven!

A Glorious Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of August at the Maus Haus and had a wonderful time. The weather couldn't have been better which always helps. The beach is just steps away with gorgeous views. Our hosts couldn't have been more gracious. They were there to greet us and make sure all was right, which it was. I had asked, based on previous VRBO comments, that they try to improve the wifi service as staying connected for work and pleasure was desired. They improved the signal and we had a great connection which was great. The cottage is very new and everything, including appliances, are in great condition. One nice touch is that they kitchen pantry includes a lot of the necessities for cooking so if you've forgotten spices and salad oils, etc. they are likely there. The kitchen has all that the equipment that is needed for cooking. Generous supply of sheets and towels. Every drawer and closet labeled for easy searching. Great walks from the cottage and the Levey's provide some good advice for beach access. One thing to know about Little Compton is that it is very quiet. It's a DIY kind of town for entertainment for the most part. Very little commercial life -- a pizza parlor and 2 cafés for eating. Nearest restaurants with liquor license are half hour ride to Tiverton and Westport, MA. But if you're looking to read or write a novel, or work on your tan it can't be beat. The cottage is smallish. The porch is a nice additional room. 4 adults might start bumping into each other. Great for family with kids or two or three adults is my recommendation.

A True Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Wanting to get away from it all is what this cute well equipped escape has to offer. We are a family of 4 and fit cozily into the space… Semi private beach was perfect to spend hours of time on. Brought our kayaks and let the ocean scare us a bit (we're used to lakes and ponds). Close enough to anything you need but far enough away to decompress and actually hear nature at it's best.

My blue heaven

  • 5 of 5

What does a couple from NYC want to do when they have a week to decompress? Listen to waves from your own beach, lie on a lush lawn in the shade of a tree with a cool breeze reading a book, have a first cup of coffee from a screened in porch with a drop dead gorgeous view, watch their dogs frolic around happily on the property, grill some food in the evening before going for a walk under the stars. Well, this what we wanted and this is exactly what we got. I can't think of a more relaxing week than the time we spent in this lovely little cottage. Little Compton is a beautiful little town, as well. It was with great sadness that we left to go back home, but is certainly not the last time we'll rent this place. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

* Enjoy long beach walks on South Shore and Goosewing beaches: hike around the rocky point to the left or drive to South Shore public access. Goosewing is managed by the Nature Conservancy. In where-to-go-and-what-to-do, pvsbond writes: 'one of the most beautiful, peaceful and unspoiled spots in all of Rhode Island. The beach is managed by The Nature Conservancy, which safeguards it from development. The wide, half-moon, sandy beach is backed by marshland, rolling green fields and a salt pond that's great for exploring.'

* Hike around the rocky point to the right and discover another vast expanse of sand at Briggs Beach (road access is private).

* Historic Little Compton Commons features the Art Cafe (excellent coffee, pastries, art), Wilbur's store (groceries to hardware...'if they don't have it, you don't need it'), the Commons Lunch (serves breakfast, lunch and dinner), Brownell Public Library, the Community Center, a wonderful kids playground, A1 Pizza, liquor store, gas, post office, and the old cemetery where you can find many an old stone and interesting story, including the stone of Elizabeth Pabodie, said to be the first child of the Mayflower (the eldest daughter of John Alden and Priscilla).

* Many farm stands with delicious native corn and vegetables.

* The Little Compton Historical Society's Wilbur house Museum is open to the public; they also offer walking tours of Sakonnet point several times a summer.

* Watch the commercial fishing boats come in at nearby Sakonnet Point and buy your choice right off the sorting line there. Or pick up fresh lobster. Then hike out on the long stone breakwater or observe the lighthouse and islands.

* Crowthers restaurant is four miles to the East. Another three miles takes you to historic Adamsville, home of the Rhode Island Red (chicken); three more miles to Lee's Supermarket in Westport.

* The best home made ice cream in the region is Grays, nine miles up the road at Tiverton Four Corners, where you'll also find fine art, antiques, and craft shops.

* Kayak rentals are available at Osprey Sea Kayak Adventures (at the head of the Westport river, about 12 miles from Little Compton).
