About Liz or Todd Hellewell

We both grew up summering in the area and have deep roots and lots of family in the area. We have an unimproved cabin on property nearby where we stay in the summer and spend our time in this cottage in the winter.

Liz or Todd Hellewell purchased this house in 1999

Why Liz or Todd Hellewell chose Rhode Island Coastal

The lakes on the north side of Rt 1 in South County are glacial kettle holes - in the glacial morraine - it is a very special place with beautiful pristine beaches nearby. Watchaud Pond is clean and surrounded by preserved land. Charlestown is very un-commercial - we love the peacefulness year round.

Great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here while in town for a wedding. Cute older house in a great location. Loved walking around the lake & sitting on the screened in porch drinking my morning coffee with the beautiful view. The furniture & beds were all very comfy, it was just like being at home, except more relaxing. Great restaurants nearby & close to the beaches, I loved it & can't wait to go back for a longer trip!

The owners were also very responsive & helpful. My family all really enjoyed their stay.

A good gathering place for family

  • 4 of 5

The lakeside cottage was a perfect place for us and a few other family members while we were in Westerly for a wedding. We especially enjoyed the screened porch looking out on the pond. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay!

A clean, well stocked, charming cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a wonderful location!! It is in walking distance to a fresh water lake, and hiking trails. It's a very short drive to ocean beaches and salt water ponds. Restraunts and stores are close by as well.

The cottage is clean, well appointed, and cozy. Also it is bigger than the pictures suggest. If you are a beach bum and a nature lover this is the place for you!

Another great time at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending the long weekend at the cottage. We love coming here so much. The new slider in the kitchen is great! This was our first time visiting in spring, and it was so nice to enjoy the cool breezes on the front porch and nice walks down the road. We are really looking forward to our full weeks coming up in June and August!
