About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 full baths/1 with shower & tub other w/ shower, sleeps 10

Located on Ninigret Pond Charlestown RI, in the exclusive Arnolda colony, the cottage has 5 bedrooms, and stunning views. There is a dock and you can bring a boat. (Ninigret pond has access to the ocean and there is a private beach if you have a boat.) Built into a hill, the house looks like a one story from the front but it is actually a two story. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, big deck and bath. The downstairs has three bedrooms, a bath and another living room.

This is a great set up for families with kids who want their own space or two families who wish to vacation together. Arnolda is a private colony next to Ninigret Park and Wildlife refuge. We are one of the few waterfront properties available for rental. Access to private tennis courts. A great place to relax and yet close to Narragansett, Newport, Mystic Seaport, golf courses and the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos.

Important: We only rent from Sat. to Sat. for full weeks

About Sarah Fletcher

My family has owned the property since 1928. This house was built in 1964 so that we could spend our summers closer to our grandmother. We lived in our bating suits and spent every minute we could outside swimming, clamming, crabbing and exploring. It would be hard to imagine a more wonderful place to grow up in.

Sarah Fletcher purchased this cottage in 1964

Why Sarah Fletcher chose Charlestown

There are so many unique and wonderful things about this property it's hard to know where to start. The view is spectacular and ever changing. You will see great blue herons, egrets, ospreys and many more birds, foxes, otters and more right at the waters' edge. The neighborhood is very quiet with private roads that are wonderful to stroll on. You can walk through the woods to Ninigret Park, a 611 acre park and wildlife refuge. If you love the beauty of nature you will find this a very special place.

There is a private tennis court you can walk to and a private beach that can only be accessed by boat. The beach is on the barrier beach that faces block Island. It is the last undeveloped barrier beach on the east coast and it is just gorgeous with a handful of people for miles, even on the weekends.

Boats can be rented from the local marina. The town beach is about a 5 minute drive. The house is next to Ninigret Park which has walking trails, a wildlife refuge, basketball, tennis, soccer fields, observatory, playground and a fresh water pond. Although the town of Charlestown is a quaint and quiet town it has a thriving flea market on the weekends as well as other major events such as the Big Apple Circus, a seafood festival, Rhythm & Roots--check the Chamber of Commerce. There are several nice restaurants, shops, as well as art galleries. Charlestown is about a 30 minute drive from Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casino. It is also just a short drive from The Mystic Seaport and aquarium.

Perfect vacation spot for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

I had such a wonderful time staying here! I wish I could start every day sitting on the porch gazing at the beautiful view. The layout was perfect for all ages to have areas that they could be together and areas that they could escape for their own activities, which is important when the group ranged from 5 to 75 years old! I loved taking long walks in the area, and the town is just adorable. I'm definitely planning on coming back next year.

I have stayed here multiple times and always love it. It is a wonderful place for families with room for everyone. The house was well taken care of and equipped. The area is perfect for outdoor activities like kayaking and biking. I would definitely recommend the property for anyone who wants a relaxed family vacation.

absolutely lovely.

  • 4 of 5

I spent a month at this cottage. The location is secluded, the house accommodates 10 with ease. The pond is warm and perfect for paddleboarding and kayaking. The kitchen is well appointed with pans and everything needed for a gourmet cook. Cocktails and or coffee on the deck is bliss. The home was clean and in perfect condition upon arrival. The owner is responsive and attentive and very nice. I would recommend this home highly and may just go back myself.
