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.

We love restoring old homes with a sustainable mindset and sharing them with our guests. Now our kids are almost grown up and they have joined in on all the fun!

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

Beautiful sophisticated property

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at quonset to celebrate my birthday and it could not have been better. The Moore family went out of their way to make this property

a 5 star home. From the minute we approached the entering patio area we all said WOW. Sharon had a lovely welcome sign with homemade delicious cupcakes and other yummy goodies ready for us.We enjoyed using the spa, the hot tub and the well equipped kitchen.

We hope to be back next year.

Absolutely gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

We were shocked at how beautiful and comfortable this house was! Every detail has been thought of. Not only were we extremely comfortable, but the decor was so inspiring and fun! The beds were so comfy- we all slept very well. The kitchen was so well equipped.... we made a delicious dinner one night. The deck was so nice to lounge on! Our kids (teens and a 7 year old) LOVED the kids room. This felt like a true escape from our busy lives into a sweet oasis! We were all blown away at all of the details and will definitely be back. Thank you Sharon and family!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the Quonset Hut. We have never stayed in such a beautiful and unique place. Every possible detail was thought of and provided. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

A beautiful welcome spread was laid out for us upon arrival. The personal attention to detail was incredible.

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!
