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.

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!

Lovely cottage, and very user-friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay in the Chaffee cottage. It was so inviting we hardly left the place, and it was very quiet. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we had dinner there almost every night. The house was very neat and clean, but also had a lot of charming details and nice art on the walls. The sunroom was a great gathering place in the morning. We spent afternoons on the terrace or the little porch, and evenings in the living room off the kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice, and are situated away from each other, so there is a lot of privacy. It was also great to have a separate office for my husband to work in. We drove to the nearby beaches several afternoons during our stay, and we did a bit of biking in both Little Compton and neighboring Westport, Mass. Steve was very helpful and friendly. It was a great place to stay!

Fantastic location!!! Peaceful & quiet!! A lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at Chaffee cottage. It is so quaint & lovely!!! The cottage has been designed with the intention of the look of an "older" cottage feel yet, with today's wants & needs throughout!

One of my favorite rooms was the sun room , which I dubbed the reading room. Each morning I would awaken a couple of hours before my husband & spend my time reading peacefully. The Chaffees truly thought of many wonderful details! I truly miss my days there but, especially my mornings

If you are looking for peace and quiet you have found where you need to be!! Each day heard lovely sounds of the birds. Beautiful mature trees outline the property.

The Chaffees are the perfect hosts!! They got back to us quickly when we had a question & have a wonderful way about them!

Lovely week at Chaffee Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, self, and pup) spent a wonderful week here, enjoying the sunny and comfortable cottage and beautifully maintained lawn and patio. The cottage is well-situated, very quiet and spotless. A short drive to Elephant Rock beach, great farm stand goods at Orr's, and an easy drive to Goosewing Beach.

We have vacationed in the area for many years, and Chaffee Cottage is a real highlight of our experience in this special part of New England. Highly recommended!
