Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and clean cottage.

Close to the freeway and attractions. Saw lots of lighthouses along the Rhode Island and Connecticut coasts. Also went to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard.

Had a great dinner at Matunuck Oyater Bar.

Perfect cottage for beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2016 and found the accommodation to suit our family of four perfectly. The cottage is well appointed and the location is amazing. We loved having a deck and made great use of the grill. There's a side yard that's perfect for outside play. The neighbors are very friendly and welcoming too. We spent a day at East Matunuck beach, visited the Mystic aquarium and took the ferry over to Block Island-so much to do in this area. I'd highly recommend a visit.

The owner was so responsive and welcoming (both leading up to the visit and during) and we found the accommodation fairly priced.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing your review. I am always happy to hear that a family thoroughly enjoyed my cottage and the many attractions in the area. It is a very special and unique coastal community to visit.

Another perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This stay was our second time and again we really enjoyed it. The cottage is perfect. The accommodations are everything you need. The guest house was perfect for my son, he mentioned he could totally stay there all summer. The outside shower is the best. Love the breakfast sandwiches at the Snug Harbor Marina. Check out Two Ten Oyster house, great food, music and atmosphere. Favorite beach would be Narragansett. Another perfect vacation.

Cozy and sweet

We had a wonderful stay at the quaint cottage. It was clean, cozy and decorated charmingly. We would definitely like to stay here again when we visit my son at URI.

Quaint, great area

  • 3 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and answered all questions I had about the property in a very prompt manner. It was a very quaint setup, but perfect for just me, my husband, and son. It was great that it was small dog friendly as we just rescued a little guy. The outdoor shower was very nice to rinse off in after the beach. We were very happy.
