Having recently relocated to Pawtucket, I raised my daughter in South Kingtown over the past twenty years. Growing up in the mid-West primarily, every summer we piled into the family station wagon with our pets and drove the long distance to visit our grandparents her in Charlestown at The Hawks Nest. Now my mother resides in Jupiter FL, and my siblings are scattered about in IL, VA and CA. I am the lucky one to live in Rhode Island, awaiting their annual summer visitors as did my grandparents long ago.
Melissa Hoefer purchased this house in 1905
This is a place where you can enjoy your family in relaxation and play!
This is a very special spot. We came with our three kids, 6,5 & 1.5 as well as our sitter. The property is beautiful. The bedrooms were the perfect size and fit everyone comfortably. The beach was beautiful and my husband and I played a ton of golf and tennis. It was a true get away from the hustle and bustle of Chicago. We are already booked again for next summer. Didn't ever want to leave.
The house was very comfortable for our large group. Melissa let us in a little early due to our wedding ceremony scheduled for 5:30. The kitchen was well equipped.Almost everything else you would need, was provided. The setting was very peaceful overlooking the pond. We went to the local beaches, Block Island, Mohegan Sun, and visited many local restaurants.
the perfect spot for our family
to gather, relax, enjoy the beach, a variety of water sports, successful clamming, great food at area restaurants, as well as suppers on the deck, and a wonderful family reunion.
I recommend Hawks Nest without reservation.
The house, the pond, the land and the people in this place were perfect for us. We first visited in September and decided that we would be married in this beautiful, serene setting. We spent hours on the deck just looking out over the pond, watching the swans and listening to all the birds.
The house was clean and comfortable, perfect for our family and wedding guests. The golf course is beautiful and very challenging. We enjoyed walking to the shops, restaurants and beaches nearby, but most of all we sat on the deck and took in the pond. Kayaking around the pond was a wonderful discovery. We were so happy with our experience there that we've reserved the same two weeks next June.
We loved our week on Ninigret Pond! Melissa was a terrific and attentive host, the house is comfortable and well-appointed, the property is amazing, and the whole area was the perfect playground for our family. Thank you, Melissa!
We had such a great time last year that our same group returned this year. Again, we had such a wonderful time. Melissa added a beach pass this year, which just added even more to our stay. It was wonderful, the views are stunning and peaceful. Having a private road that is quiet and safe is so great for the kids and adults alike. With the beach pass we were able to go to any state beach, so we visited three. We discovered farmer's markets, fresh veggie stands and fish markets. Dave's coffee is great on Route 1 and the Mini-Super. The kitchen is fantastic for meals, and having your early morning coffee while staring at the views from the kitchen is just amazing.There is ample cookware, ample seating for our group of 11, plenty of bathrooms and space. The deck is huge and the dock is great for boating and lake great for kayaking and clamming. The outside shower is a lifesaver after going to the beach. I was very sad when we had to leave, I would love to stay forever. Again, thank you Melissa for opening your home to us.
Ninigret Pond is the most pristine and least crowded coastal area in South County!
