Great Place to Unplug

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely old house to share with a family group that wants to slow down, get away from all the electronic gadgets, and reconnect. Great lawn for playing ladder ball and croquet. We love the second floor "dormitory," a reminder of what summer houses used to look and feel like. The beach in June is never crowded. Little Compton has lots of local farms that sell beautiful fresh produce and the fish market in Westport is amazing.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
I felt relaxed the moment I laid eyes on this wonderful vacation home. Everything about it feels like a getaway from everyday life. The open windows let a perfect breeze run through it so you never feel one step removed from the ocean. Brigg’s Beach is quiet and beautiful and close to the house. I’ve never been to a beach so untouched and private.
The house itself is full of charm, there is a perfect balance of stunning original furnishings and modern touches such as a dish washer, washer/dryer, heavenly outside shower and comfy beds.
My favorite moment during our stay was eating lobster rolls on the beach for lunch and then falling asleep in the sun. We had bought local lobsters at Sakonnet Lobster Co. the day before and steamed an extra one for sandwiches.
I would recommend this vacation home to everyone. It truly is a slice of paradise.

Amazing New England Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with friends and it was a fantastic visit. It was so relaxing and beautiful! Waking up to a quiet, breezy beach view made every morning amazing.

The house is airy and bright with sunlight pouring through every window at any time of the day. Lunches on the front porch, back yard, or beach are lovely and peaceful.

There are tons of places to sleep in the house but my favorite is on the second floor where it feels exactly like a beach house should: open, sunny, and fun.

The bathrooms are modern and the bathtub is huge. There is also an outdoor shower with hot water and stones at your feet.

The backyard is gigantic and a perfect place for throwing a ball, flying a kite, or playing croquet. Getting to the beach is a short and very pretty walk. Our son's favorite activity at the beach was choosing smooth pebbles to take home and watching all the tiny minnows swim in the breakers.

Getting around is easy and the surrounding towns are charming and well stocked. There are loads of farmers markets and stalls for fresh fruits and vegetables, including some of the best tomatoes I've ever had in my life.

Great food, a serene beach, a lovely cottage... We'll certainly be back!
