Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This cottage has a beautiful view of the salt pond. It was really nice to wake up to that each morning. The deck and the screened in porch were great and there is a very nice gas grill too. The house was clean and well appointed. It is on the small size, but we knew that going into it. I like the open floor plan between the kitchen and the living room. The beds were very comfortable and there is ample closet space. I liked the built in dressers too. The location was great, so close to the beach! When we didn't feel like cooking we went into Wakefield, an easy drive up Rt. 1 where they had many good choices of places to eat. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay.

very quiet and restful week

  • 5 of 5

Perfect small cottage for small family. My husband and two boys spent a wonderful week at this lovely updated cottage with fabulous views of Green Hill pond. With access to the pond, we paddled almost every day. We rested, read a lot and enjoyed lounging in the screen porch. The house is at the end of a quiet cul de sac, perfect for our boys, 11 and 13 to ride their bikes. We rode to the local farm stand , Peaches, every day for fresh produce and to the bakery for breakfast. There are also good restaurants easily in bike ride distance. We drove to the beach because of all of our stuff, but it would be an easy bike ride. The cottage has been updated and has a beautiful kitchen and bathroom. It is very well maintained and feels much more like a lovingly cared for home than a rental. Hope to be back next year!!

a perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has amazing views of Green Hill Pond, which is right across the street. The wrap around deck and screened in porch are so comfortable for relaxing and enjoying the view. The location is great- a short walk or bike ride to Charlestown Town Beach. The cottage is well equipped, clean, comfortable, and cozy. I would love to come back!

July in Charlestown, RI

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a vacation, with a short drive to beach! Really nice set up with the deck and screened porch our main dining/ cocktail areas to take advantage of the water views. Inside the kitchen/ living room areas were open as well. The property was very clean and well maintained. Who knew that the rental came with 7 straight beach days. ( at least for us ) Quiet area for a very relaxed week. Would stay there again, heck wouldn't mind living there! Anita the owner who was there to greet us was very nice as well!
