Overview

Rhode Island Coastal House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

PRIME TIME STILL AVAILABLE..Located in Little Compton, Rhode Island on the Westport, Massachusetts line, this charming house is situated in a little known area where farmland sweeps to the ocean. The secluded spot has many beaches, woods and birds, with the distinctive landscape of terminal moraine. Nearby are two wonderful, award-winning vineyards--Westport Rivers and Sakonnet. Each offers daily wine tastings and special events.

A great house for families, there are many children's water and nature related programs available in the area along with several good restaurants.

Nearby gourmet markets allow you to do your own cooking in style. It’s a short distance for a day trip to the New Bedford Whaling Museum, a ferry ride to the Elizabeth Islands or a jaunt to scenic Newport, Rhode Island. Plan a visit to Blithewold Gardens. The area offers excellent bicycling as well.

Why The Owner chose Rhode Island Coastal

We fell in love with Little Compton after searching all over New England and the Islands for an oasis to spend time together with the whole family. We wanted a comfortable home with views and a short, low traffic drive from Boston so we could come and go easily. The incomparable countryside, great beaches, and a superb one-stop supermarket won us over.

What makes this house unique

Explore the unspoiled countryside with the four bicycles available. Take a leisurely walk or bike ride to Goosewing Beach for the afternoon. Gaze across the sprawling meadow just outside your back door. Then stretch out on the patio and watch the sunset over Quicksand Pond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sadly we have no plans to return to LC this summer. Best of luck with the rental. It's absolutely serene where you live."

Gorgeous setting, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house built by an architect . . . lots of light inside and a great place to bring the kids. Loft bedrooms are great fun for children. The view is bucolic.

Damp

  • 2 of 5

The property was well worn, musty, and not cleaned as described. The grounds were weedy. Disapointing.

Owner's Response: Always glad to have feedback. We made a mistake this year allowing a wedding party without someone other than the probably overwhelmed groom in charge of exiting the property. They were not out in time. The cleaners had a hard time of it. This will not happen again. There will always be hours open between guests for the cleaners to do a proper job. Sorry! Re:"Weedy" This is the country. The yard is mowed regularly professionally all season. The abutting meadows are held in common as bird sanctuary. The Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy have rights here and the Norfolk Hunt Club this fall.
