Rhode Island Coastal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

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!

Idyllic Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been staying at Chaffee cottage for several Summers now. It's simply an amazing place and has everything one might need for a Summer vacation. The house is meticulously clean, set on a beautiful piece of property, and well situated near beaches and the towns of Little Compton, Westport and Tiverton. We enjoy eating on the back patio during the warm evenings and chasing fireflies with the kids. This home simply has all of the New England Summer charm one would want for building family memories.

We stayed at the cottage for several weeks over the winter holiday. It was amazing! The cottage was warm and cozy and had everything you could hope for. We just brought ourselves. The house was meticulous and everything one might need was already there. It was also beautifully decorated and the reading nook surrounded on three sides was my favorite.

5 STARS in every aspect!

  • 5 of 5

The Chaffee cottage is a 5 STAR rental in every aspect. I rented it for my daughter and her family for the holidays. We couldn't be more pleased with this immaculate cozy warm cottage. It is just as charming in winter as it is in summer. An added bonus is the availability of the Chaffee's housekeeper/cleaning lady on a weekly basis, if you so wish to have her.......we did. Thank you Steve & Josje for a perfect holiday stay. Warm regards, Faith
