We will definitely be back to this perfect getaway. Loved this peaceful view and tranquility, yet close to the beach and some fun shops at 4 corners in Tiverton. A home away from home.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We all let out a collective sigh of appreciation when we arrived at this cottage for a week in July. It is everything one could want from a summer rental by the shore - quiet, airy, beautiful views out to the pond & ocean beyond. Really great kayaking spot. Our 2 little boys loved running around the deck & yard. The owners are so kind & thoughtful. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Kathy!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

A warm, comfortable and perfectly-appointed home, rented by attentive and lovely folks. There's plenty to do in the immediate area but it's hard to leave this idyllic location, with such spectacular views, rain or shine--the pond, the ocean, the birds...We kayaked, biked and hiked with no need to use a car. The owners could not have done a better job providing this very pleasant and peaceful setting that to us is a perfect vacation spot. Thank you for sharing!

A sweet hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and its surroundings were just what I was hoping for when I booked—clean, quaint, quiet, waterside. While we didn't luck out weather wise, it didn't matter. The cottage itself is open and airy even if we had to close the windows from time to time. I'd love to return. Thank you, Kathy, for sharing your cottage! It's a real dream.

We had a fantastic vacation here, so quiet and secluded we had Quicksand pond to ourselves. We went crabbing, kayaked to Goosewing beach and just relaxed. Great farm stands near by and fish market in Westport. The cottage has great views and the deck was incredible! We hope to come back next year.
