I bought this cottage to be close to my mother and I love the friendly area. My family vacationed here when I was a child and the beach is still so breathtaking.
Owner purchased this cottage in 1996
The Sand Hill Cove area is beautiful and the proximately to the ocean is amazing.It is literally a one minute walk from the cottage to Roger Wheeler State Beach.
Classic Sand Hill Cove cottage with original farmer's stone wall outside the cottage dating back centuries.It is a relaxing home with modern features.Hear the fog horn at night after you walk to Galilee State Beach , enjoy clams cakes and chowder at a local restaurant, or prepare delicious meals. You can feel the cool ocean breeze.The cottage is so close to the beach that you can easily walk back and forth to the beach all day. There is also a large playground on the beach for children, outdoor showers, and a snack bar.
We stayed for a week with our family, two parents and four young adults ranging in age from 15 to 20. The cottage is not big, but we were comfortable in the living room when we were just 'chilling'. The sleeping accommodations required we use the pull out couch.
The kitchen is tiny and can get quite warm but the stove/cooktop/microwave/fridge all work and allowed us to preparee breakfast/dinner on site. The back porch table was the only place large enough for the 6 of use to sit down for dinner and it's shaded by a wonderful tree so worked quite well for us - thankfully we had no rain. The table in the living room worked for 2 or 3 at breakfast, but would not hold all of us.
The internet worked well as did the LR TV. We made frequent use of the laundry facility, but we did have to take turns washing our dishes.
The closest beach is more suited to families with smaller kids (not many waves) but we tested out other beaches and found some of the more southern ones had 'big enough' waves for the older kids.
I liked being close enough to walk to the near beach for an early evening swim before bed, after most of the crowds had left the beach.
The cottage is on the corner of a pretty busy road, but we did not have any trouble with road noise after dark. There is also a lot of local foot traffic back/forth to the beach, all friendly.
The cottage is adequate but not elegant
The cottage is steps from Roger Wheeler State Beach. It is a ten minute walk to the Block Island Ferry. It is five minutes away from Scarborough State Beach and ten minutes from Narragansett Beach.It is also thirty minutes away from Newport
The Historic Narragansett Towers , ten minutes from the cottage,has music and dancing for families every week.There are weekly concerts in the gazebo located next to the Towers Also in this area is the library which offers library activities for children and adults.
The Sand Hill Cove area is great for a variety of things to do including swimming,walking, jogging, fishing, bicycling, and boating.There are road races throughout the year including one called Race to the Point. There are many fish markets which sell fresh seafood every day in Galilee, a short walk from the cottage. Lobsters are sold from the fishing boats. It is a great area for enjoying the beauty of nature from seabirds to ospreys.
