Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

A quaint and comfortable log cabin on 3 woodland acres located in Watchaug Heights Association.

The living room, dining room and kitchen is a spacious open design with a special indirect lighting system on dimmer switches to create your perfect desired effect on the finished pine wood vaulted ceiling. The dining room has a sliding door that opens to a private back yard deck. The entire cabin is finished with yellow pine walls and oak flooring throughout the cabin.

The cabin sits back from the road with plenty of privacy and trees to enjoy. The Charlestown area is an ideal vacation spot, with many attractions nearby. See the Chamber of Commerce links in this ad. The cabin is a short 15 minute drive to the Charlestown Breachway featuring one of the most beautiful ocean front beaches in New England for swimming in the summer and great stripped bass fishing in the late summer/early fall.

About Scott Hurley

It is a blessing to live in this part of New England. I love cutting and splitting wood at the cabin in the winter and boating with my family in the summer. I enjoy my work at a family owned telecommunication company where I am an executive. I love coaching employees and managers to help them accomplish professional and business goals.

Scott Hurley purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Scott Hurley chose Charlestown

My family is now third, fourth & fifth generation log cabiners. This cabin was built in 1985 by my parents, fulfilling a retirement dream of my mother, whose father lived in a log cabin on Long Island during his retirement years. I spent all of my summers and long weekends as a child at my grandfather's lob cabin. Both of my parents were World War II veterans, my father serving under General Patton in the Battle of the Bulge. As my father said many times, 'Charlestown, RI reminds me so much of East Northport, LI when I was a boy.'

What makes this cabin unique

We love Thanksgiving and Christmas at the cabin. With all of our family gathering together we have great memories. Our immediate family in the area numbers almost 30. My family also loves staying at the cabin on cold winter weekends.

Nice and secluded!

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Scott was very nice and made himself available to our needs. Weather was great and we took advantage of the fire pit. Would definitely book again!

Nicely kept, clean, welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Neat log cabin with exposed beams. We love the small lights on the beams that show off the vaulted ceiling. We enjoyed the fire pit, lake (gorgeous and very close by) and beach (fun waves, about a 10 min drive). Scott Hurley was extremely easy to rent from - answered all of our questions and was so hospitable. Thanks for a great vacation!

Quiet & Cozy

  • 4 of 5

Just like home... had planned for this to be our 'home base' to our beach comings & goings - but the cabin served us well on the one rain-day. Lots of room. Would plan a return visit in the future along with recommendations to others.

Worked for our weekend needs

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a lovely private setting. There was plenty of room for outdoor family games. Likewise Inside the house allowed for groups or individual pursuits. We did not take advantage of the lake during our weekend. Location allows for pretty easy access to other area activities. The owners were pleasant and helpful.

The house is fairly shaded and there are no air conditioners necessitating use of fans and leaving Windows open. This creates a dampness that can be felt in clothing. There is no washer but more importantly no dryer - anything wet gets thrown over things to hopefully dry.

No WIFI these days, especially with kids can be difficult. Double bed could use more supportive mattress.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "the cabin". It is in great location to be able to visit any of the Rhode Island beaches. Also the lake beach is within blocks of the cabin that you can walk to if you decide. The water at the lake was like bath water and so refreshing. Beach area is clean and wonderful area for a family with young children. The older children can also enjoy it as well. The cabin open concept for the kitchen, dining and living room is terrific. Although it was only 2 of us I can see a family enjoying the open concept. The owners were very nice and available if needed.
