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 Tiverton

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

Our stay at the The Quonset was BEYOND all my expectations!!!!! LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for parent's weekend at RWU; my daughter is a freshman and had been terribly homesick. Wanted a house where I could gather my young adult children and our pup together, cook their favorite meals and have some awesome family time. This house was PERFECT and turned out to be BEYOND any of my expectations!!!

Sharon, the owner, was a delight to work with and upon arrival we were greeted by such a thoughtful welcome sign and lots of goodies, even some for our pup. The home is so wonderfully unique and comfortable we loved every minute of our stay there.

I cooked most of our meals with ease in the incredibly equipped kitchen. We spent lots of time playing games at the kitchen table, catching up and laughing around the fire-pit and watching movies all snuggled up in the comfy living room.

My daughter described her bed as "delicious" having had the best night's sleep. I totally have to agree with her as mine was also so cozy and comfortable I didn't want to get out of it! It was one of our best family trips, we were all sorry having to leave! My daughter is already asking when we can book it again!

Thank you Sharon for sharing your beautiful home with us and giving us such a wonderfully comfortable spot to enjoy each other's company!

We loved our stay at the Quonset Hut. What a unique home! Personal touches and attention to detail made it a one of a kind experience. A lovely family weekend with wonderful memories. Loved all the areas to gather, game room, large family dining room and outdoor area with hot tub. Thank you Moore Family!

Extraordinary! Nothing short of a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

While the pictures on the website were dazzling, being at the Quonset hut in real life surpassed all expectations. The design, the flow, the setting, the town… all of it was magical. No luxury detail was spared and yet it was a lovely and cozy Thanksgiving for all of us.

Just amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This property is just amazing! Every detail has been considered and created to perfection. The house is spacious, spotless, and charming. The outdoor area is amazing. Even in 40 degree temperatures, we spent the majority of our time lounging on the patio furniture, by the fire pit or in the hot tub! The kitchen is a wonderful gathering place for a group. We had some issues with the heat while we were there. Sharon and her team were exceptionally responsive and did all they could to make us comfortable. The only draw back to this house is the smell of the water since it’s from a well. We found it difficult to shower in water that had such a smell of sulfur. However, it is a tiny inconvenience when compared to this experience of staying in the Quonset Hut!

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!
