This country cape sits on a 2 ½ acres of land a quarter mile down a private country lane and is surrounded by 20 acres of open conservation land and 100 acres of woods. There are no houses in view offering absolute silence to spot deer and observe birds (hawks, bluebirds, osprey, humming birds, ..). Yet you are one mile from the Town beach and from the Town center. There is a sunny front porch for your morning coffee and a back deck for evening barbeques. We are a young Franco-American couple who enjoys a simple clean-lined aesthetic. There is a well-equipped kitchen and delight in comfortable bedding all with100% cotton linens, white towels for the bath and plenty of colorful towels for the beach. There is an outdoor shower and a large airy garage with bicycles.
Special things about Little Compton: The public beach is 1 mile away and a wonderful, hidden place to view the best surf in southern New England and have a picnic (Town Landing). Get your lobsters at the shop on Sakonnet Point. Best corn in the world at Walker's stand. Variety of churches in town common and old burial ground. Many fairs throughout the season. Back Eddy restaurant on the water in Westport is fabulous. Lots of places for antiques, art, and fun shopping. The best thing about LC is that it is quietly elegant. No tourist rush, although Wilbur's General Store can hop a bit in the morning when the papers come in. Similarly, the Commons Restaurant, specializing in Johnny Cakes for breakfast, gets busy on the weekends. There is a nice library (with Free internet and WIFI access) in the town square as well as an ice cream parlor.

Little Compton is a beach community without the crowds. It offers a country setting by the ocean. You can visit the winery or local farms or just ride bikes along quiet country roads. Its town beach is the only beach in the state which allows fires on the beach at night. Just stop by town hall for a permit. It is a perfect place to explore. Newport with its mansions is a short ride as well as Providence. Boston is a great day trip it's about 1 1/4 hour away.
