Rhode Island Coastal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Skylights and double 8' sliders provide plentiful light, ocean air, easy access to the deck and views to a spacious, private yard. A large bedroom with 2 twin beds and it's own bath on the ground level can double as a playroom or quiet space away from the upstairs living area activities. When you find the ocean breezes are not enough, central air provides extra comfort. Beach chairs and beach umbrella are available for your use while you enjoy sun and fun on miles of ocean beach and fresh-water/salt-water ponds, just minutes away. Upon your return, follow the stepping stones to our enclosed outdoor shower to get refreshed for your next activity.

Ninigret Park, also right in Charlestown offers a delightful change from the ocean experience. Here you can enjoy fresh-water swimming with a lifeguard (great for young children), walking trails, picnic areas, basketball and tennis courts, and an observatory open to the public to view the night sky through a telescope on Friday nights. Ninigret Park is also the home to special events like the Big Apple Circus, Seafood Festival and Rhythm & Roots Festival.

Summer water activities like swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking, sailing, motor-boating and the best flat water and ocean canoeing in Rhode Island are just minutes away. Rather be golfing? Bring your clubs and play one of the 7 golf courses located close by. Live entertainment and theater venues are plentiful so check local listings to see what's current in live summer theater and outdoor concerts. Excellent choices for eating out, from casual to fine dining can all be found within a short drive.

Not just a Summer place, Spring and Autumn are also great times for visiting Mystic Village, Seaport and Aquarium, Foxwoods Casino, Newport Mansions, village and restaurants. Walk through the historic town of Wickford and explore antique stores and galleries. Don't miss the Umbrella Factory gardens and shops for a unique experience in shopping. Take a ferry to Block Island and stop in Galilee to pick up fresh seafood right off the boat.

After Labor Day is a perfect time to still catch warm beach days and some of the best fishing, sailing and windsurfing of the year.

Local fresh food markets, deli's, video rentals, galleries, restaurants, entertainment, as well as major stores are all within 30 minutes for all your vacation needs.

About Lauren Stephens

Vacationing in Charlestown has been part of our family tradition since the 1920's. Then, as now, we have found the ocean and ponds in Charlestown to be a very special, unique place and a perfect vacation spot to spend time with family and friends. Five generations of our family have shared many wonderful, memorable experiences here, walking the beaches, clamming and boating in the ponds, visiting nature preserves, landmarks and local points of interest.

Why Lauren Stephens chose Rhode Island Coastal

It's the perfect place for family gatherings, picnics on the beach, fishing, sailing, beach-combing, kayaking, clamming and just plain relaxing in a beautiful, natural setting that renews the soul. Charlestown has changed and grown over the years, but still has kept it's informal rural character and offers a unique opportunity to experience the natural treasures around us while being within easy distance to entertainment, museums, one-of-a-kind galleries, funky little shops and historical landmarks. Most of all it's a treasured place where we feel at home and enjoy sharing with family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Convenience and comfort. The location is central to the local beach and local market while being private and quiet with plenty of space for outdoor relaxing and activities. Because it is on a side street just off the main road to the beach and breachway and public boat access, it provides easy access without traffic. Skylights and a window-wall bring in light, fresh air, a view of the yard, sun and stars. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and basic supplies, to make your stay easy to enjoy.

sweet week at the blueberry patch

  • 4 of 5

Perfect little cottage for a relaxing beach stay! The home was clean and comfortable. Two families traveling together with 2 toddlers and an infant - we were grateful for the playroom/ extra downstairs bedroom. It was private and much larger than we imagined and allowed for spreading out over the house for different nap-times etc. Walking distance to the beach, near restaurants and fruit stand. just perfect. looking forward to renting again!

nice cottage

  • 3 of 5

Nice location and peacefull setting. 5 minute bike ride to beach.Walking distance to fruit stand.

No recliners or Red Sox on TV . I would rent again if cable was upgraded for the summer.

A hammock would also be nice, maybe next year.
