Owner also lives NYC and summers in Maine. Uses the house in winter. I am a sculptor, my husband, a photographer. We are dog owners, kayakers who enjoy outdoor living and travel . I grew up in the area, lived across the lake, went to school in Providence, attended Oberlin College and have MA from New York University, My husband went to Harvard. and is from Boston. We are probably much older than you so you can be sure that the house is pretty comfortable. We built it in 1988 and have enjoyed it for all this time.
Owner/Manager purchased this house in 1988
As I just said, I built it. It is on land owned by my great grandmother.I like it. What more do you want to know?
Oh for Pete's sake! Enough! Obviously I think it is a desirable getaway from the city. There is also a new studio on the property which I intend to start using in the fall. (Not included in the rental. )
This is a very unique house on a beautiful pond. All linens and towels were provided. Kitchen was very well stocked with everything I needed. There was no TV but I never missed it. House is a very close drive to the bike path and not too far from the Narragansett area beaches. As the pictures show, the house does sit on a hill so be prepared for a lot of steps from the driveway to the front door. The road to the house is a very long winding gravel road through the woods, so I would recommend a 4x4 or AWD vehicle. This place is a bit remote but very quiet and peaceful.

This is a private home for 9 months of the year. The house contains some reasonably good furniture. We value our possessions and are grateful if you treat them with consideration. We also value our relationship with the neighborhood which frowns on loud cars, fierce dogs, ecological destruction etc. There is newly constructed studio next to the house which is not included in the rental, sorry.
