An alternative to generic condominiums, our unique little cottage is in the heart of Watch Hill. You can walk to two beaches, the oldest 'flying horse' carousel in the U.S., and shops and restaurants in minutes. The cottage is also a short walk from the new Ocean House resort hotel and the Watch Hill Chapel.
The Ice House was originally the kitchen/ice house for the larger home on the property, which was later converted to a separate home. The house has a loft-like first floor, with open living and dining room, and a full kitchen with counter seating. There is a new flat screen TV, a pull out couch, and a vintage 1930's Hoosier cabinet and matching dining set for four. The bathroom is also located on the first floor, has a 'claw foot' tub with shower, and small washer and dryer units. The cottage has a Caribbean color scheme overall, with a mix of vintage and contemporary furnishings and art.
On the second floor, the master bedroom has an antique double bed with romantic net canopy. The second bedroom has two antique iron twins and is perfect for families with children. Both bedrooms are air conditioned. Outside the bedrooms is a cozy sitting area with a vintage rattan couch, chair, computer desk and small flat screen TV.
Please note that, while the cottage sleeps 6 in a pinch, we will rarely accept a reservation for 6 adults due to the size of the house and the septic system.
The deck on the front of the house has a dining table with umbrella, chairs, occasional tables and a small grill. Please note that the cottage does not have a lawn - but we do have a lovely deck for al fresco dining and cocktails. And the large public park area at the gazebo on the harbor is great for Frisbee and ball play.
Also please note that there is parking for 2 cars maximum. If both are very large (large SUVs for instance) there may not be room for 2.

Watch Hill is located in the town of Westerly, RI, the first coastal town over the Connecticut border. It is twenty minutes from Mystic, Connecticut, the Mystic Aquarium and the Mystic Seaport Museum. The lovely town of Stonington, Connecticut, home to many antique shops and boutiques, is also just a twenty minute drive. North of Westerly, Newport is about 45 minutes.
If you want surf and a deep, sand beach, East Beach is a 5 minute walk from the cottage. If you want a quiet, family beach that is more protected from the waves, the beach at the carousel ( sometimes called the children's beach) is available for our renters and is also a quick walk down Bay Street. Both beaches have life guards on duty. Parking pass for the Bay Street lot is included.
