Stunning waterfront location on Fogland Point, three bedrooms (one queen, one double, one single). Huge fieldstone fireplace. Open living room/dining room/kitchen with three couches in living room. This comfortable escape home is great for relaxing and entertaining. Huge wraparound deck faces the Sakonnet River. New windows, new stove, new Sealy mattresses. Tile bath has full tub/shower.
Private rocky beach great for fishing and picnics, also a short 2 or 3 minute walk to the sandy, public Fogland Beach, for swimming, boat launching, and wind surfing. Lifeguard on duty seasonally. Beautiful sunsets from the deck. Gorgeous daylily garden, and the house is surrounded by blue and purple hydrangeas. Or take a walk and pick yourself a bouquet of wild beach roses.
Just a short ride to Newport. Eight minutes from historic Tiverton Four-Corners, with Gray's Ice Cream, Provender, antique stores, galleries, toy store, gift shops, designer clothing shops for adults and kids, cheese and pate shop, produce stands, book store, library, restaurant and more. Tour Sakonnet Vineyards, ten minutes away.
Homey local restaurants feature great home cooking and seafood specialties, like seafood chowder, lobster rolls, fried clams, clam cakes & home made pies. Fresh seafood markets, country stands, and garden centers in both Tiverton and neighboring Little Compton.
We had a new low water usage washer/dryer installed last summer.
Please note that we have a well, we are not supplied with town water. Water conservation is important in this fragile coastal environment. For example, please allow time between large uses of water consumption for the well to 're-charge'. If you take a shower, do dishes, and wash the car at the same time the well could run dry. We have not had the well run dry in 14 years, but it could happen if you overuse the well in a short period of time, so please be careful with water consumption.
Welcome to our guestbook. We had a wonderful set of guests this summer, and when we returned in the fall the house looked as if it had never been rented. We want to personally thank all our wonderful guests for taking such good care of our home, and we hope to welcome you back again next season. Some of you have already contacted us about returning, and we have updated our availablilty calender for next year, so take a look at the dates left if you haven't already called us. We would also like to encourage anyone who stayed at Fogland last season to add any comments you might care to share. Thanks again! Wendy and Joel
We had the pleasure of spending a week at this property in May of 2016. Located on a peninsula with about 15 other homes/cottages, you will drive by a small quiet sand beach (with playground) on the way to the house. The house has two bedrooms with queen size beds and an additional room with a single bed and sink/vanity, laundry room, living space with open floor feel for the supply stocked kitchen/dining area/most of the living room (working fireplace) so you can cook and chat with/see anyone that is moving around in those spaces. The views from every window are beautiful and the front yard has a wooden swing that our kids enjoyed. The deck is huge and is great to have a meal or watch a sunset/moon-rise. The back yard is a very nice size where we were able to fly kites for the first time with the kids (can be very windy). There is a lovely little “mediation area” with a bench that is hidden from view behind some shrubs and looks out over the water – great spot to hide away for a morning cup of coffee. The birds, bunnies, and fox roaming the peninsula kept my children entertained. Wooden stairs off the back yard lead to beautiful rock beach.
All the neighbors we met were very nice (some renters/some owners). House is about 30 minutes to either Providence or Newport. FOR ICE CREAM FANS - there are two good ice cream places in Tiverton – both on Rt 77. The better known one is Gray's at the four corners. We loved Helger’s Ice Cream (next to the liquor store). We went back several times (even for pints to store in the freezer!). Get the campfire s’mores flavor - we even got pints to store in the freezer!!
The owner of the house was very helpful leading up to the trip with suggestions of places and things to do (thanks Joel!). He was very communicative and answered any questions I had upon arrival. We were sure to leave the place as we found it and received our security deposit back within two weeks. I would highly recommend this property for a couple, two couples vacationing together or a small family that want to feel like they are in a remote area but are actually close to many destinations.
We are so grateful to Joel for sharing his lovely home. The sunset views from the great deck are fabulous and the setting is perfect. We return every year to enjoy the peace and serenity as well as the natural beauty. The gardens are lovely and the house is well maintained and equipped. We look forward to personal renewal in this lovely retreat each year.
We just signed up for our 6th stay at Joel's lovely cottage on Fogland point. It is in a wonderfully quiet corner of Rhode Island. From the deck one can watch the sailboats glide by, gaze at great sunsets, dine on fresh seafood or just hangout and chill. The house is immaculate with a well-equipped kitchen, an outdoor grill and all you need to enjoy a vacation including a great outdoor shower. Wind-surfing and kite-boarding are very nearby at a sweet little beach, and there are lovely quiet country roads for walking or cycling. We really look forward to our week there every September.
This is my family's 4th year at Wendy and Joel's Fogland home. It is the highlight of our summer, and it pleases all members of our family; from our 16 y/o son, our 20 something daughters and my husband and I. Fishing, boat watching, birds, bunnies all keep us company. Home is clean, appliances in good working order and hosts inform renters of area attractions to assist with vacation planning. Lots of biking, wineries, restaurants, shops at nearby Four Corners, farm stands abound and sunsets are priceless.
My family and I stayed at Fogland Point in August and had a wonderful time. The views and surrounding areas are stunning. The house is very well maintained and our toddler loved running around on the big porch. Fogland Point is very secluded and peaceful. We highly recommend it!
I spent the last week in June 2006 at Fogland Point. I have been a vacationer in this area for over 25 years, but never have I enjoyed a vacation as much as I did my time at Fogland Point. The house is well landscaped, with a wonderful deck, beautiful flowers and a spectacular view of the ocean. The area is quiet and peaceful, the only noises are ocean and nature sounds. Wendy and Joel have gone to great lengths to make sure that guests are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are light and airy. Although most of my stay was marked by heavy rainstorms, I have never enjoyed a vacation more. I can only say that it was a pleasure to stay in this house. I cant wait until next year. If Fogland Point is available ~ I will be back.
Thank you both!!
and Sakonnet Vineyards is less than 10 minutes away, Or just stay home! The wrap-a-round deck is great, No matter where the breeze is coming from, or where the sun is, you can find a spot on the deck to suit your desires, Want to sunbathe? The breeze is there, Had enough sun for the day? There's shade tomorrow morning, or create some with the picnic table umbrella, relax and read a book! We have recently added an antique croquet set.
