Fall is the best time in Rhode Island- warm days with quiet beaches, cool nights sitting around a firepit. No crowds or traffic to make touring Newport, Stonington, Mystic etc...that much easier.

Desirable East avenue half way between town center and beaches

Convenient to Boston, NY, Newport , Westerly, Casinos, New London, Block Island, etc...

Located in Westerly RI, this charming cape is 3.5 miles from Misquamicut Beach, and the beaches of Watch Hill Rhode Island. Near golf, kayak rentals, and 1 mile from center of Westerly's quaint New England Mainstreet America town featuring famous Wilcox Park, Granite Street Theatre, Shakespeare in the Park, RiverFire and more. This home is in the perfect spot for touring New England- 45 minutes to Newport and Providence and Casinos. 15 minutes to Stonington CT fishing village. 20 Minutes to Mystic CT.

Atmosphere: This cottage is not luxurious- it is well loved. It is a rustic cottage near everything that my family has used for years as a flop house going to and returning from the beach. It has all of the of the original wood cabinetry and charm of a new England cottage in a coastal town. This is the kind of place my family likes to say 'its ok to track the sand from the beach into the kitchen' where we sit around all day on the porch playing cards with the kids, listening to music, grilling and telling stories. Each room comes with a fan, Single rooms have air conditioning units. We make fires in the fireplace on chilly Spring/Fall nights. We hope you enjoy and love it as much as we have.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and quiet rental. Rented in June the weather was great but nights cool. The fireplace was perfect to take away the chill

Rental offered plenty of beach towels, beach chairs and household products.

Some of the furniture could use updating or be a material you could wipe down. We just covered it with sheets.

Great lawn and great location.

Comfortable home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. It was charming, comfortable, tidy, quiet, close to the beach and town, and had a great deck and yard. After spending days at the beach, it was a treat to fire up the grill and enjoy dinner on the covered deck. The kitchen was well equipped and having a washer/dryer was a huge plus. It's close to shopping centers and wonderful local restaurants.

We spend a week in Westerly every summer and have stayed in many different houses over the years. This one is our favorite. We hope to be back in 2016, maybe for 2 weeks!

Wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

thank you Anne. We had a wonderful time. We will be back next year ! My husband is a Mr fix it ! He fixed the bedroom door upstairs so it would not continue to scrape the beautiful hardwood floor. He fixed the screen door to the porch as well. I put a little olive oil on the scratches on the floor. It seemed to help.

Just a couple of suggestions for next year.

I would add a memory foam pad to the queen bed upstairs. By the end of the week my back was very stiff. Perhaps an air conditioner in the 3rd bedroom might be an idea. It did get rather warm and sticky a few nights. Also, the earwigs in the downstairs bathroom were rather yucky ! Not sure if there are treatments for that type of pest. One last thing was the rusty radiator in the bathroom. I would take it out and sand it and spray paint it. And throughly clean the floor under it.

The house was cozy and the books and beach pass were appreciated. I loved being able to keep the house open and doors unlocked without worrying.

We really did have a wonderful time.

Thank you so much !!

Owner's Response: Thanks M. Glad you had a good time. I have never seen an earwig in the bathroom (we spray the foundations every spring) but I will have the cleaning crew see if they find one. Yes- as you can see from the other radiators we have been spraying, covering and replacing. They are the originals to the cottage so have some wear over time. The last one is the one in the bathroom which the handyman will do this fall 2015. We always appreciate the feedback on improvements- the books and the ping pong table were set up based on wishlists provided by other renters so we appreciate hearing about the bed and the third air conditioner. And be sure to thank your husband for fixing the hole in the screen door. I had that on the list as well! Now we won't have anything to do this fall!! haha Anne

A fantastic summer cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation at this fantastic summer cottage. The listing was accurate and furnished as advertised, clean, and well-maintained. The proximity to the many beaches was very convenient. The Bridge restaurant was a great evening dine and the park, within walking distance across the state line, was very beautiful. The customer service was prompt, courteous, and helpful in answering questions...I would definitely recommend this property.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this cottage. The property is beautiful with a lovely catalpa tree in the back yard. Love the back deck for family breakfasts and suppers. Ping Pong table in the basement became part of our evening family routine. The inside of the cottage felt spacious for our family of four and the bedrooms upstairs had lovely woodwork, air conditioners, and built-in bureaus. Nice quiet neighborhood but close to the beach, supermarket and restaurants. Wonderful beach pass included was a much appreciated bonus. Thank you!!!
