This gorgeous 1940's Quonset hut was used in the war to store ammunition. Although all the ammunition has all been cleared out :) This house was in worse shape than them all! With only a handful left in the state and only a few thousand in the entire country we found it necessary to look after this little gem and restore it to its former glory. Not little any more with over 2600 sq ft, this unique home will be available for guests stays this coming summer starting June 1st. Only a quick bike ride to the beach in the provided bikes and kayaks this 4 bed, 2 bath is our favorite restoration yet! Stay tuned and check out our website to see all the before and afters.

About Sharon

We are the Moore Family!

We love finding forgotten homes around the world and giving them new life! My husband and I have been Restoring homes with a sustainable mindset and we absolutely love sharing them with our guests. Now our kids are almost grown up and they have joined in on all the fun!

Sharon purchased this house in 2015

Why Sharon chose Rhode Island Coastal

Words cannot describe our love for 'The Quonset"

When we found this forgotten home - it was almost a crumbled pile of timber. Yes thats right, it had been left for dead and we couldn't have that. After 2 and a half years later of blood, sweat and tears this became the perfect meeting place for our family! So much space for my kids and our furry family member to run around both inside and out this was the place that some of our most precious family memories were made.

By staying at our Quonset you are contributing to our mission of Saving Rhode island Coastal Charm one home at a time :)

What makes this house unique

Hot tub, bikes, ping pong table, game room, pet friendly, and kid friendly

Memoriable Stay at the Quonset

  • 5 of 5

This house was beyond beautiful when we got there for my dad's birthday celebration during July 4th weekend. The house was meticulously decorated. It has everything we needed. It was appropriate for all ages! (We had kids as young as 3 to adults as old as 70) The Moore treated my family so well and was fast to respond for anything we needed. I truly recommend this place and would definitely come back for another stay.

The best place we've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Opening the door to this beautiful home was exciting and beautiful. We couldn't get over how each and every detail was thought of. The rooms are decorated beautifully, and fully stocked with whatever you might need.

When we arrived there was a delicious spread of fresh lemonade, fruit and other little bites set out on the counter ready for us!

My stay at the Quonset Hut was for work and I had to ship a few things out to the house prior to my stay and the Moore family couldn't have been more accommodating and wonderful.

While this trip was for work, we want to return next time for leisure. It lends itself to the perfect spot for a vacation with friends or family.

I could go on and on about how wonderful and inspiring this space was, and how lovely the Moore's are. So grateful I found this gorgeous space!

Beautiful waterfront area Tiverton RI, The perfect undiscovered hub of Rhode island. Convenient to Newport & Little Compton and yet the heritage/ history is untouched.

Everything you need within the area from wineries, golfing, tennis, boating and water sports, farm tours, hiking & museums. Our favorite thing to do is get on the water as much as possible.

Our family is full service planning for our guests! Please let us know if you would like a picnic on the beach, a proposal sail, deep sea fishing etc.. We just love to host our guests and make sure they have the best time when staying in one of our cottages!
