Overview

Rhode Island Coastal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom cottage with loft on cove at end of private lane. A true get-away!

Rejoice and rejuvenate in this tiny slice of paradise. This newly-constructed cottage (built in 2011) is situated at the end of a private lane, directly on a cove. From the old stone wall in front, it’s literally a stone’s throw to the ocean. To the right of where your stone lands is a rocky shoreline (fishing!), to the left is a pebbly beach (swimming!), and within hiking distance around the points on both sides (beach combing!) are large sandy beaches (sand castles!). A small stream flows into the cove. Less than two miles by road from South Shore Beach.

The cottage has one bedroom, living/dining room with futon sleep couch, galley kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, one full bathroom (shower), an outside shower, an unfurnished loft that can sleep three, screened porch, and gas grill. We are your neighbors and appreciate reasonably quiet renters.

Come listen to the ocean, admire the stars, walk along the shore, read a novel and feel the wind. The way vacation used to be.

PLEASE NOTE: In July and August we rent only by the week. In May, June, September and October we'll consider 4 to 6 night rentals on a case-by-case basis.

About Doug and Lisa Levey

Cottage built in 2011 on the site of our great great great uncle's fishing shack, near our grandmother's house. We grew up spending most of each summer enjoying this wonderful piece of shoreline.

All that we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage in late September, a perfect time. The beaches were deserted and we could let our dog run on the beaches, but the weather was perfect, even warm enough for a swim. The cottage was perfect. We slept in the loft and watched the sunrise every morning.

Beautiful!

This was a piece of paradise. The cottage was adorable and the view was amazing. If you want to totally relax and enjoy nature this is your place. The owners are very accommodating and prompt with every email and they were so welcoming to our dogs. It was a great vacation and we hope to return soon!

Idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a magical week in this lovely place. We quickly developed some new routines: picnic dinner at the beach, shopping for local meats and produce at nearby Wishing Stone Farm, and blueberries in every possible meal (from a local pick-your-own place). It's a quiet, beautiful, private spot that we can see going back to again and again.

The cottage itself is perfect: everything we needed and nothing we didn't. The washer and dryer were modern front-loaders that made short work of our laundry, the kitchen was supplied with what we needed for making simple meals, the bed was comfy, and our six-year-old loved the sleeping loft.

The beach in front of the cottage was better for exploring than swimming, but we had some great swims at nearby South Shore Beach/Goosewing Beach.

The village of Little Compton had a lovely nature walk-- The Dundery Brook Trail, which would be great even for tiny kids and folks with mobility issues, as it's a sturdy boardwalk through the woods.

We loved our stay...

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, especially in the quiet space of early October. This visit, we bicycled to Atlantic Avenue in Westport, MA, walked the rocky shore to the north and the south of the cottage, and enjoyed lunch and wine tasting at Sakonnet Vineyards on a gorgeous fall day. The Maus Haus is a fine location for day trips to Newport, Providence, or Bristol, RI or New Bedford, MA. The out-of-the-way location is perfect for dog owners who want to walk their dogs along the shore. It's a perfect spot for families with children five and older, who will love sleeping in the loft.

The bedroom is on the first floor tucked behind the kitchen. As adults, we could not stand up in the loft. Think of a long tent... Regardless, I love tents and would enjoy sleeping in that space.

Peaceful oceanfront gem!

  • 5 of 5

Spent time first week of September in this sweet cottage appointed with anything one would need...linens, towels, fully stocked kitchen, grill. Views are breathtaking, especially sunrise which we experienced frequently. Screen porch was our favorite room. Wonderful ocean breezes all the day. So nice and quiet, felt like it was our private beach!

Lovely area to go for walks. Quaint and sweet neighborhoods.

Owner, Doug, a great communicator, who answers any questions anyone might have and wants people to enjoy this slice of heaven!

In front of house or South Shore (public beach)
Car: recommended

* Enjoy long beach walks on South Shore and Goosewing beaches: hike around the rocky point to the left or drive to South Shore public access. Goosewing is managed by the Nature Conservancy. In where-to-go-and-what-to-do, pvsbond writes: 'one of the most beautiful, peaceful and unspoiled spots in all of Rhode Island. The beach is managed by The Nature Conservancy, which safeguards it from development. The wide, half-moon, sandy beach is backed by marshland, rolling green fields and a salt pond that's great for exploring.'

* Hike around the rocky point to the right and discover another vast expanse of sand at Briggs Beach (road access is private).

* Historic Little Compton Commons features the Art Cafe (excellent coffee, pastries, art), Wilbur's store (groceries to hardware...'if they don't have it, you don't need it'), the Commons Lunch (serves breakfast, lunch and dinner), Brownell Public Library, the Community Center, a wonderful kids playground, A1 Pizza, liquor store, gas, post office, and the old cemetery where you can find many an old stone and interesting story, including the stone of Elizabeth Pabodie, said to be the first child of the Mayflower (the eldest daughter of John Alden and Priscilla).

* Many farm stands with delicious native corn and vegetables.

* The Little Compton Historical Society's Wilbur house Museum is open to the public; they also offer walking tours of Sakonnet point several times a summer.

* Watch the commercial fishing boats come in at nearby Sakonnet Point and buy your choice right off the sorting line there. Or pick up fresh lobster. Then hike out on the long stone breakwater or observe the lighthouse and islands.

* Crowthers restaurant is four miles to the East. Another three miles takes you to historic Adamsville, home of the Rhode Island Red (chicken); three more miles to Lee's Supermarket in Westport.

* The best home made ice cream in the region is Grays, nine miles up the road at Tiverton Four Corners, where you'll also find fine art, antiques, and craft shops.

* Kayak rentals are available at Osprey Sea Kayak Adventures (at the head of the Westport river, about 12 miles from Little Compton).
