About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Chaffee Cottage, circa 2007, was designed from an 18th-century cape and has all the modern-day amenities, such as central air, washer/dryer, dishwasher, outdoor shower, high-speed wireless internet and cable HDTV.

Located in the historic hamlet of Little Compton, the cottage is less than a mile from the Atlantic ocean as the bird flies, and just a two-mile drive along winding country roads and beautiful pastoral settings to the nearest beach. There are several more beaches within a fifteen-minute driving distance of the cottage, including (but not limited to) Horseneck, Goosewing, South Shore and Elephant Rock beaches. You'll find beautiful country roads, pristine beaches, rolling pastures, antique shops, wineries and nature preserves - all within biking or driving distance.

We are pet friendly at Chaffee Cottage. We do, however, reserve the right to consider each pet request on an individual basis.

Chaffee Vottage is a perfect home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was incredibly well equipped. But more importantly it has a peaceful and comforting ambience to it - from the very moment you pull through the gate onto the driveway stones. The owners are ever so friendly and helpful. You'll see. Enjoy! And also enjoy Crowthers restaurant up the road. We went there every night of our week at the cottage. It was that good. Recommended things to do.... Sakonett Vineyard, Battleship Cove, The Whaling Museum, Coggeshall Farm Museum, and Slater Mill.

Excellent stay, beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in your cottage. We all agreed that it was the nicest of the dozen or so houses we have stayed in over the years. Also, an amazing architectural reproduction. From storm doors to floor boards the details are impeccable! Very nice modern additions and a lovely, dog friendly yard to boot.

Only a couple of minor complaints...

-you need at least one LARGE pot for corn and lobster (we got a semi-local friend to lend us one when he came to visit.

-up grade the food prep knives. At least one good serrated and one decent french knife.

Owner's Response: Dear Haak family, Thank you so much for your kind words and practical suggestions! A large lobster pot and prep knives will be added to our kitchen's inventory immediately. Our sincerest thanks for these points of improvement. We look forward to hopefully having you as our guests in the future! Kind Regards, Steve and Josje Chaffee

Straight out of a Robert Frost Poem

  • 5 of 5

My family throughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Chaffee! It was a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. Little Compton is secluded and pastoral and feels straight out of a poem with its grassy fields and stone walls. Chaffee Cottage perfectly matches the town, it is beautiful, clean and well decorated. My son loved the hot air balloon figurines hanging from the ceiling stairwell. While at the house we enjoyed reading on back patio and sun room. We biked to Elephant Rock Beach (2.5 miles away) and the downtown common (also 2 miles). We went to the local vineyard and it was absolutely stunning. We also visited the local beaches. If your looking for a peaceful relaxing retreat this is it!

Chaffee Cottage is the best! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chaffee Cottage. The property is serene and lovely and the home spotless, well-equipped, and so comfortable. Nearby Elephant Rock beach is a beauty. The cottage owners have thought of everything to make this the perfect summer getaway!
