About the surrounding area;

Sakonnet Farm’s newest addition is ideally situated at the base of Quicksand Pond between South Shore Beach in Little Compton and the Acoaxet Club in Westport. South Shore Beach and Goosewing Beach are located just three miles from Potters Corner. CNN travel rated Goosewing Beach one of the world's best eco-friendly beaches due to the effort by the Nature Conservancy to protect the endangered piping plovers. During the summer you can often see areas of the beach roped off because the piping plovers have made their nests. The Benjamin Family Environmental Center is located at Goosewing Beach and is ideally situated to offer visitors a stunning view of the barrier beach and dune, coastal salt pond and historic meadowland. Through expanded programs, walks and rotating educational exhibits, visitors will learn about important natural features and local flora and fauna (nature.org).

Little Compton is a very small, rural and bucolic town with approximately 3500 full time residents. Situated on the southeast of the Sakonnet River; the area is abundant with farmlands, stone walls, and remains untouched by urban sprawl; it’s as if time stayed still in many ways. The Town Commons is located within two miles of Potters Corner and enjoy the local watering hole, Crowther’s, which is within walking distance. For a beautiful collection of photos of Little Compton, please visit our friend Sharon's blog- A New England Life. The area is also very popular for bike riding; the roads are less traveled and very scenic and there are also many choices for hikers.

The Dundery Brook trail runs through a forested wetland and then into an open meadow and pond habitat. Seasonal changes in flora and fauna can be observed all year long. Highlights include the spring return of migratory birds and emergence of amphibians of all kinds. Flowering wetland plants that include jack-in-the-pulpit and some very rare plants can be observed along the trail. Particularly suitable for younger children and those for whom getting around can be a challenge, this trail provides visitors with an opportunity to explore a myriad of wetland habitats which support a changing variety of creatures throughout the year.

In neighboring Tiverton, RI there are two miles of trails in Emily Ruecker Wildlife Refuge; a 50-acre parcel of woods and salt marsh with trails and fine views of the Sakonnet River. The refuge has blinds for observing and photographing nature. Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, and Glossy Ibis are among the birds that frequent the marsh. Jack's Island, a peninsula that extends into the Sakonnet River, is home to breeding Ospreys.

Very close to the Refuge are three interconnected trails at the 230 acre Pardon Gray Preserve. All are marked with white blazes. The Cemetery Trail passes an active vernal pool near the start. It connects with the Ridge Trial at a point close to the Yellow Trail in Weetamoo Woods. The Ridge Trail ends at a small parking area on Lafayette Road. From the parking lot go about 200 yards west on Lafayette Road to get to the start of the Lafayette Connector trail, which leads back to the parking area along Main Road. Access to the lightly used South Trail is from the Town Farm Recreation Area parking lot at the south end of Pardon Gray Preserve. The cemetery in the center of the 67 acre farmland is that of the family of Pardon Gray. Pardon Gray provided bread and other staples to the soldiers stationed at Fort Barton during the Revolutionary War (all trail info was obtained from exploreri.org).

Westport Massachusetts is located in the next town over where you can find a quaint shopping area and Horseneck Beach, a large, public state beach reservation where the Westport River joins Buzzards Bay. Also in neighboring Westport is Osprey Kayak where you can take lessons for kayaking or stand up paddling. They also have a huge variety of tours. Their River Tour series offers time in the river or the sea. Their Eco Tour series focuses on exploration of the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The home is like brand new, clean, and gorgeous. The owners attention to detail is wonderful. We were three couples and had plenty of space and comfort. They provided beautiful comfortable linens as well. The beds were very comfortable. The decor and furniture were absolutely gorgeous. We loved our stay and would highly recommend to anyone.

Clean, great for larger groups, well located, great bathrooms

  • 4 of 5

This house is well located in the Little Compton area close to beaches and Newport. It was three spacious bedrooms, three full baths, two living rooms, and a good porch for eating outside. The kitchen is generally well stocked, although we were wanting for a salad spinner, with all the great lettuce we picked up at nearby farms. While we enjoyed the air conditioning, the one real problem we had during our stay was with noise from the ventilator fan in the ceiling of the upstairs hallway (very close to two bedrooms). Yes it did go on when we put on the bathroom fans, but then it seemed to go on intermittently for about 2 hours after the evening showers were finished. Overall, I would recommend this property for a large family stay.

Beautiful property with modern comforts and amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in this home. It has many luxuries and was quite peaceful. It is also flows nicely for entertaining and the back yard was exceptional for football and frisbee!! We had a fantastic time here and were very comfortable throughout the entire stay. Crowther's was a delicious restaurant within' walking distance(try the stuffed quahog!!) and A-1 pizza was delicious for pizza and grinders. This home gets an easy 5 for cleanliness and entertaining. The backyard was spacious and well kept. I highly recommend this property!

Beautiful house, great for big families

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! Immaculately clean, plenty of space for our kids to run around inside and out. It's the perfect house for people vacationing with large families. Nice quiet location, close to mellow beaches and only a short drive to Newport. We had a lovely vacation. Thank you!

Wonderful place, spacious, clean and with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the great pleasure of spending a week at Potters Corner. We are global travelers and typically reside in upscale hotels/vacation rentals. Potters Corner met or exceeded our expectations.

It is meticulously clean and very well kept. The owners are highly responsive, friendly and personable. The master suite is phenomenal. It has a steam shower, large whirlpool tub, sauna, wet bar, fridge and more. The house is perfectly designed for entertaining yet also offers several options for privacy in it's various rooms. It's a perfect place for 6 people, though with room for several more if needed.

I could go on and on about the positive aspects as there are several more including the great sound system, stable wifi, fireplaces and TVs(5) with remotes that are actually easy to use without prior instruction.

Bottom line: Great place and we intend to return.
