About Lorna C. Browning
I was Born in Rhode Island , and grew up on Great Island, a little island over in Galilee in Narragansett. URI graduate, as are my three girls. I am a teacher, as was my Mom and Grandmother, and one daughter. I have been living on the water every summer since I can remember. I owned and operated and taught at my Early Childhood Center in Nashua NH, but spent my Summers and Weekends in our cottage in East Matunuck. I love children, music and the ocean. Do a bit of photography and painting when time allows. LOVE THE BEACH!!!! And I an lucky enough to be at the beach, so I am lucky enough!!
Lorna C. Browning purchased this Cottage in 1979
Why Lorna C. Browning chose Charlestown
LOVE the beach and this piece of property hurt my heart when I saw it. The color of the ocean, the smell of the sea , the beautiful beach, the solitude and the View, took my breath away. It is four lots. ... I have three daughters....perfect fit!
What makes this Cottage unique
It is MINE! Lol. The ocean....the sand, the surf, and the gentle salty breezes! We also are lucky enough to have no close neighbors! Just the perfect spot to enjoy and relax! In this busy life we all lead, we have earned some time to enjoy the SEASIDE! Many people are not this lucky! To wake up and hear the surf and to lie in bed, watching the shimmer of the moon on the water! Really!! Could you ask for more?? Not me! To me that is as good as it gets! I would love to share it with you. Great for family gatherings! The guest quarters is a perfect place to put the grandparents and a couple of grandchildren....as it has its own set up, and allows for a little privacy from the family group.

Fabulous Ocean Front Cottage
This small cottage attached to main quarters at Charlestown Beach is perfect for a couple. The porch overlooks a private beach and the view is absolutely stunning. The cottage is equipped with everything you need -- including homemade bread and a bottle of wine -- to make your stay absolutely perfect. Swim, fish or bask in the sun on your own private beach and enjoy your vacation in a luxurious way. Close to shopping and entertainment, this cottage has it all.
Comparing notes with friends and family who also took beach vacations this summer, I’m glad we chose Seaside. First, for the Rhode Island beaches—easy to get to, low-key, not crowded. And this beach was quite lovely, especially since we were perched on a deck right over it. Nothing more restorative than gazing out at that gigantic horizon and expanse of uninterrupted blue…except for sleeping to the sound of surf. We spent a lot of time on the deck, as it features all the benefits of the beach with none of the ordeal of getting to it or sitting on it! The house was wonderfully situated, and comfortable in a laid-back, beachy way; I especially appreciated the decent mattresses upstairs. The configuration of the house turned out to be the best of its features: we four “older” adults inhabited the main abode (btw for couples, a short hall separates the 2 queen bedrooms upstairs, there is no door or curtain) and my 3 adult children who stay up all night inhabited the apartment (queen, small bunkroom), so we didn’t suffer from each other’s schedules though we used only the main kitchen and ate all our dinners together. The kitchen is well kitted out (although some lids for the pots would be nice) and we made full use of the fresh seafood and produce and pie stand up the street. Our best adventure was a day on Block Island, right across the sound, where we rented bikes and mopeds and toured the entire island. Even though I’m not a beach person, I’d return to this rental. Thank you, Lorna!
Thank you so much for taking the time to inform new guests, all about SEASIDE! With such a large lot you really have a lot of privacy, which is very rare, for seaside cottages. We are so lucky to have this, and love sharing with guests that appreciate it. I am thrilled that you truly loved being there. I look forward to seeing you again!!
Stunning Labor Day Weekend
We arrived for a long labor day weekend....5 couples.
There is no better property for view, location and access to your private beach. The bunk bed rooms were small. There is a large master bedroom upstairs. Each floor has a full bath. The attached apartment has a full stocked kitchen, full bath, a bed bunk room and another with double bed. We had great weather so most of our time was spent on the deck/beach. There is nothing missing from this rental. The property was clean & maintained. We would definitely go back.
Perfect Vacation Getaway
We had an amazing family vacation at this home! You can't beat the location and the private beach area you have at your disposal is quite large. We had a family of 10 with plenty of room. Hope to be back again. Highly recommend!!
So nice to hear you enjoyed your SEASIDE vacation. A family that plays together, stays together! I hope you return! Having the soft, sandy private beach at your doorstep...makes it so easy to go from the cottage to the beach... Especially with children or older adults! You put it to good use with the volley ball net! SEASIDE fun! Stay happy and healthy!
Awesome end of summer weekend
What an Awesome house. Location is great, cant get any better then on the beach. There was plenty of room for all in my party. The description was right on point and the Owner's response to my questions was immediate. We rented the entire house for the weekend and it worked out perfect. You can tell how much the owner cares because of the wonderful updated floors are beautifule and the couches are comfortable and best of all listening to the waves crashing while you fall asleep. It's location is convienent to the taste of Mystic and Point Judith. After the first shower you learn not to open you mouth or eyes( you are on the ocean) but other than that it was a wondrful weekend in a beautiful house. Cant wait for next year. Thanks
We now have fresh water!!! Hurricane Sandy claimed our well...so now town water is brought in! I rather enjoyed the saltyish showers, but for dishes it was time consuming to get the water from the dispenser in the kitchen for rinsing and flowers. So glad you loved it as much as we do.
The sound of the surf, the sand in your toes, the ocean breezes, the view, and the privacy is what drew us to it the first day we saw it! A great place to relax and get your energy back! The ocean has a way of doing that!
Hope to see you again....SEASIDE!
A true seaside cottage
Desparate to get to the beach, I inquired about this property since I wasn't sure how many people/families from my group would be going and the ad said sleeps 4-12. Well, lucky for us the side for 4 was open! (Who knew we'd be lucky enough to be at the beach?!) Because the owner was so accomodating we were able to pull off a wonderful 3 days right on Charlestown Beach in her little beach cottage.
I just read the other reviews and can confirm the location, location, location! Also I just saw the recommendation for the Matunuck Oyster Bar. Luckily we found that on our own and had a great meal in spite of the pouring rain (entrees got soaked upon delivery, but were still good). We saw a terrific "light show" and fortunately recieved our meal prior to the restaurant losing power. We were glad we had power at the house when we returned! Also glad the "master" bedroom had a ceiling fan and more glad we brought a small one from home. I suggest you bring one because if you have to close the windows due to rain, it does get pretty stuffy, otherwise there is a great breeze!
Having just gotten a smaller car, we were thrilled beach chairs and umbrellas were found right under the house en route to the beach and when done with them you drop them off right next to the outdoor shower! Yep, the shower is salty, A new experience but not terrible. I guess it could be handy if you have a sore throat. We noticed no smells expect the fabulous salt air. Our last night we "took out" food from the Breachway Grille. Half of it was ready before the rest, and we had to wait so some items didn't travel as well as others, but overall it was very good. I bet if you ate there it would have been even better. For us, we were having such a terrific beach day and early evening we chose to stay on the deck, so a little soggy food, was worth it!
If you are willing to sacrifice some space* for location on a terrific beach, rent this cottage.
*We were 2 adults and 2 grown kids with another visiting for the day. It's perfect if the weather is good, cozy if it isn't. It's probably ideal for a couple with small children.
Soooo glad you enjoyed your stay! SEASIDE is now, no longer salty!! We have town water brought in....so the ocean stays on the beach!!
It is a wonderful place to just relax, and soak in Mother Nature at its BEST!
Sun, sand, surf... ocean breezes....and YOU!!
Hope to see you next year...SEASIDE!
RIGHT ON THE BEACH... Just a few steps away, and you can swim in the ocean, RELAX on the beach...fish off the bridge or rent a boat and go out for the day in the ocean or the saltwater inlets. Small restaurant just a little up the road. Kids love to feel 'independant' and walk over for a drink or lunch 'on their own'! If you want to leave the beach, there are many restaurants, New England waterfront villages or parks close by. Monthly events include Art Shows, The Big Circus, Chowder Festival etc. The Yatching towns of Newport, Wickford and Watch Hill have great shops, restaurants and 'boat watching'. The Fox Woods Casino is 20 minutes away for shows and great dinners and gambling. Being in R.I. everything is close! There are lakes, natural reserves, flea markets and antique stores. The very best is the beaches, and you have one of the best right in front of the cottage! Ninigret Park offers gentle surf, clear blue water, sugary sand, and an unspoiled barrier beach. 4000 acres of wildlife sanctuaries, a new playground, fishing access, trails, swimming, tennis, bike paths etc. this is just a few minutes away. A nice change for a day, but still enjoying the ocean and nature.
We have it all! BUT...YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO DRAG YOURSELF AWAY FROM 'SEASIDE'. The sunset and sunrise is outstanding...and the peacefulness of the cottage is swept up in the sound of the surf. Nice to nod off to sleep to. We have water brought in, as Hurricane Sandy destroyed our well, so we request that you are conservative with the water. It is town water .
There is a GREAT little deli/ sandwich shop, at the beginning of the road, a bakery, ice cream shop and a wonderful fresh fruit and vegetable store.
About 5 min away is the Charlestown Mini Super. Wonderful fresh fish, chowder, fresh made bread and pizza, great meats and soups.and just about anything you forgot when shopping. Breakfast sandwiches are wonderful! There is also a bakery and sandwich shop at the beginning of Charlestown Beach Road. Great for morning muffins...or a quick pick up for lunch. Relax and sit on the deck or beach, rather than hustle in the kitchen. This is YOUR week...so enjoy.
