Overview

About the property

Awesome Year-Round Getaway and Sunset Views Over the Sakonnet!

Lovely, high end home available for weekend getaways, holiday weeks, New England summers, and cozy fall and winter excursions. We just recently completed a complete renovation to the highest standards. Panoramic westerly water views and Sunsets over the Sakonnet River from the master bed balcony. Great artwork, funky antiques, granite/stainless kitchen, claw foot tub, two custom baths, two gas fireplaces, antique pine floors, vintage radiators, and cool custom/vintage materials give this cottage a clean, contemporary and interesting feel.

The best feature is an amazing 30 x 15 Master suite with a fireplace, king size bed, private bath, and french doors to a private balcony overlooking the Sakonnet. Lower level is smallish, with a 20 x 12 fireplaced kitchen/living area, a bedroom with bunk bed, a third sitting room with daybeds, and another full bath. There's a front porch, vintage cobblestone patio, and a fantastic hot/cold mahogany outdoor shower.

Its not a party house, its a tasteful little cottage, ok for entertaining in the summer but smallish for winter indoor dinners for more than 4 adults. I think the house is a perfect romantic weekend getaway, or great retreat for a couple or young family.

Little Compton is a charming seaside New England town featuring stone walls, farm stands, fresh seafood, and sandy beaches. Here's what the Providence Journal had to say in July of 2013: 'What the state’s historical commission wrote in a survey report about the town in 1986 remains true today: “Isolated and remote, Little Compton has been relatively free from the political pressures or economic forces that have transformed much of the rest of Rhode Island into a dense, urban and suburban metropolis.”

“The town’s resistance to change — at first a result of its isolation, later due to deliberate decisions — has preserved a remarkable legacy,” the report added. “... Little Compton presents an idyllic picture, complete with rolling topography, a quiltwork pattern of stone-wall-bounded farms and woodland, complemented by marshes, saltwater ponds, barrier beaches, a rocky promontory at Sakonnet Point, old farm complexes, comfortable summer houses, winding roads, and tree-lined villages.”

Newport is appx 30 minutes away, Providence or Boston an hour or so. Walk to the beach at the end of our street, or a short drive to numerous other beaches, nature trails, the town commons, Sakonnet Vineyards, Christmas tree farms, artists studios and antique shops.

Includes: Linens, towels, cookware, a couple of televisions with blu ray players, loads of dvds, blu rays, and books; wireless internet; coffee maker, nespresso machine. Bring your suitcase, bike, kayak, or running shoes and you should be fine!

About Steve Rodio

I'm a lawyer practicing in a small firm in Rhode Island, a life long resident of the smallest state, and Rhode Island's biggest fan! I love it here, from the fascinating and eclectic downcity Providence, to historic Newport with its summer 'cottages' fit for kings and queens, to the quintessential New England seaside town Little Compton.

Steve Rodio purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Steve Rodio chose Rhode Island Coastal

I purchased this home to rehab and put on the market, but the more time I spent in Little Compton the harder it was to part with this house! My kids and I love going there, its the most relaxing place int he world - and one of the prettiest!

What makes this cottage unique

Think New England seaside communities and Little Compton is the point of reference. Stone walls, farmers markets, roadside stands with amazing fresh vegetables, the freshest seafood, a town commons with white steeple church and historic cemetery, gorgeous beaches, and wide open vistas of green grass and blue sea. Summer, fall or winter, Little Compton's charm and beauty remain the same.

Charming, modern cottage with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Though small, this cottage is immaculate and comfortable and full of light. Feels like it's been recently renovated and the kitchen and baths have all modern appliances/fixtures. It is in a very quiet neighborhood, and sits up on a hill a bit, it is a unique lot. The upstairs bedroom and bath (especially the bathtub!) are a dream--I could have stayed in that bedroom the whole weekend --the deck that is accessed through French doors offers a spectacular view of the river and is a perfect spot for sunset cocktails. The view right from the bed is amazing! Or you can take a short walk down the street to a small beach along the river and do your viewing from there. The front porch is awesome too. The owner is completely responsive and friendly and helpful, though we really had all we needed. There is a binder with everything you need to know about the house, including information on the area and things to do. We were there in February, but there's a big back deck with a nice big gas grill, and a cool outdoor shower which would make renting this house in the summer even better. I'm looking forward to my next opportunity to stay in this lovely place!

Charming cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful space - exactly as described and pictured. Romantic master bedroom with water & sunset views, lovely fireplace, gorgeous bathroom and mattress that was beyond comfortable. Perfect kitchen, adorable TV room - especially liked the front living room was great quiet space for reading, game playing. Town of Little Compton covered in picturesque farms by the sea, art galleries and a few restauarants. Ate at Four Corners Grill several times, convienient and delicious. Traveling to look at colleges each day - would've loved to spend more time just staying put...would absolutely return. Steve and Danielle responsive and easy to deal with. Highly recommend for any time of year. (The beach covered in snowy rocks was stunning).

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to relax and get away for a few days. The house is just as nice as it appears in the photos. It's very clean and decorated with interesting art, comfortable furniture, and stocked with everything you might need...linens, toiletries, kitchen supplies, books, movies, internet. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood that is easy to find, and centrally located in Little Compton- short drive to the Commons, Four Corners, Adamsville, the vineyard and nice walking trails at an Audubon wildlife preserve. This was a lovely place to visit any time of the year.

Little Compton is a quaint New England coastal community, regarded for both its natural beauty and its exclusiveness. Visit the Town Commons with its white steeple church and colonial cemetery, enjoy one of the many area beaches, take a tour of Sakonnet Vineyards, get fresh local produce at one of the many farm stands or the Saturday Farmer's market, go antiquing, walk the nature trails, or simply stroll to the end of our street for a dip in the Sakonnet. If you enjoy running, rollerblading or bicycling, you will fall in love with the town's beautiful roads and trails. If the Kayak is more your style, you will be amazed at Narragansett Bay! Dinning choices nearby are plentiful, especially in Bristol (15 minute drive), which boasts some of RI's most creative and delicious kitchens. Of course, Newport is always fun for a night out or a day of touring the mansions.
