ON OCEAN COVE - NEW COTTAGE

Little Compton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Rejoice and rejuvenate in this tiny slice of paradise. This brand new family 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.

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.

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.

We can't wait to go back this summer!

We had a wonderful time here last September with our two little boys. It's a lovely, quiet spot right on the ocean surrounded by a green lawn, fields & stone walls. A little path through sea rose bushes brings you to the pebbly beach and, judging by the collections around the cottage, everyone loves walking here & collecting the smooth stones. There's a general store in town for necessities & a yummy coffee/breakfast spot. Sakonnet Vineyards serves lunch on a covered terrace overlooking the vines.
Everything was clean & tidy when we arrived & the cottage is well outfitted for guests (maybe bring a cutting board if you plan on cooking a lot). The owners & their family couldn't be nicer or easier to work with! There are 2 sleeping pads upstairs in the loft for kids but the other reviewer's recommendation to bring something to soften the bed downstairs is a good one.
We're looking forward to another relaxing week here!

Wished I Was Still There

  • 5 of 5
This is one of those properties you don't want to write a review for because you want to keep it for yourself. However, that type of thinking would be contrary to the owners' spirit of sharing.

Despite its name, Maus House is perfect in size. Not too small - not too large - just right. What knocks this cottage out of the ball park is the location. A short groomed grass path shared with rabbits and a few quiet neighbors brings you right to a solitary beach that includes sand for sunbathers, easy swimming access, and climbing rocks.

We went in September. There were extra blankets in the closet to keep us warm. I recommend sleeping in the loft, looking out of the window, towards the moonlit ocean.

Renting from Doug is simple and straight forward.
Do it!

In town, go to Gray's for Ice Cream.
We will definitely return.

We had an excellent week, cottage was in excellent condition, lovely location, could not have been happier. Owners were wonderful. I would highly recommend this property. Only negative,..... double bed, although in great condition, was way to "firm" for me. Wish it was a little more plush! Otherwise, a perfect week.

Cottage on the ocean with privacy and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5
This cottage in Little Compton is tucked perfectly away into a private cove offering quiet and relaxing days. A great place to hear the ocean waves, this cottage was designed so you can see the ocean from every room. If you are looking for a private getaway, this is the place. Bring your bikes and be sure to eat at The Four Corners Grille. The outside shower is a treat and the porch brings in the ocean breeze. I was concerned about no AC but the nights were fine with a fan in the window. There is only one bed in this cottage and my husband found it uncomfortable so we suggest bringing something to soften the bed.

Car: recommended

* 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).
