Short Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house to be close to a local wedding in little Compton. It was perfect, beautiful and clean, very cute. Went for a run in the neighborhood - very scenic. Went twice to the homes private beach access - beautiful, quiet, no one else in sight - just my family and our dogs running around and playing. Went to the winery close by (dogs also allowed there!) and also the stand and bakery next door which was delicious. Good value, it was a great weekend!

Wedding weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the farmhouse. It is clean and comfortable. Loved the farm stand right next door, brought home fresh corn and tomatoes! We were attending our nephews wedding in little Compton and this was a perfect answer for our family of 6.

Lovely mid- 1700"s Farm House

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely mid-1700's farm house that was well-equipped and conveniently located. The beds were very comfortable and accommodating. While in a lovely setting next to a absolutely wonderful farm stand and bakery, it is a tad closer to the road than the picture suggests and as a result, traffic noise can impact those who are not used to it (two bedrooms have A/C units which can help, but the 3rd does not.) The other thing to note is the bathrooms reflect the age of the house, but are generally fine. The owners (who own the farm and farm stand next door) are great and helpful. One of the beds needed to be fixed and the hot water wasn't working when we first arrived; they came quickly to tend to it. There was a problem with the well water and they provided bottled water for our consumption. This is not a fancy, luxury home, but a great comfortable place close to many attractions -- shops, ocean beaches, Newport, and Sacconet Vineyards, which has dinners on Friday and Saturday nights in the summer.

A charming farmhouse when visiting Little Compton

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely, charming farmhouse and was a restful place to stay when we recently attended a friend's wedding in Little Compton. The location, layout and amenities were consistent with the listing description. A nice farmstand was found nextdoor where we purchased fresh strawberries and the other veggies. And there were some nice restaurants close by that gave us great views of Mt. Hope Bay. We'd definitely stay here again on the next trip to Little Compton.

perfect rhode island vacation

  • 5 of 5

this was our second stay at the little compton farmhouse. with the addition of the outdoor shower, it now has everything we're looking for in a beach vacation: charming and well-maintained old home with a farm stand and bakery down the driveway, easy access to the beach, fish store and ice cream shop down the road, outdoor shower, and nice patio with gas and charcoal grills. we couldn't be happier. and the icing on the cake is that you are very well taken care of by coll the owner and suzie the property manager. we'll be back again for sure!

Right out of a Robert Frost poem!

  • 5 of 5

We stay here every summer with our 5 children and love it. There is just something really comfortable and charming about an old house. It has attention to detail that you don't see in modern houses, from the solid wood doors with little metal latches in every room to the narrow back staircase that you have to duck down to go up. My kids especially love that staircase!

Despite being an old house, everything inside is immaculate, with plenty of fresh towels and crisp clean sheets. The cable and wi-fi internet keep it current, not that you really want to spend a ton of time inside in front of a screen when Little Compton is so beautiful in the summer!

The house is bright and sunny inside, and has a cute covered flagstone patio off the mud room. I heard that Coll put in an outdoor shower in the off season, which we're excited to try out this summer. The big front yard has soft grass that is comfortable to sit and picnic on. The back yard has a picnic table and a grove of cedar trees that my kids like to climb and play in. We usually grill outside and have dinner at the picnic table.

The master bedroom is spacious, and my husband and I have never EVER slept on a more comfortable bed. We wish we could take it home with us! We can also fit 2 kid sized airbeds and a portable crib for the baby on the floor and still not feel cramped. Our kids sleep like rocks when we're visiting.

Between the farm and bakery, you have almost everything you need for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nothing is better than corn picked within the past hour, or fresh real tomatoes. Once you try the produce from the farm stand, you'll never eat another grocery store tomato!

If you're coming to Little Compton for a vacation, you know about the gorgeous beaches, the bike riding, and the general beauty of the area. Between Suzie and Coll, you'll get the friendliest part of the town too. And to top it off, you can bring your dog (which we do!)
