Lovely, high end home available for weekend getaways, holiday weeks, New England summers, and cozy fall and winter excursions. We just recently completed a complete renovation to the highest standards. Panoramic westerly water views and Sunsets over the Sakonnet River from the master bed balcony. Great artwork, funky antiques, granite/stainless kitchen, claw foot tub, two custom baths, two gas fireplaces, antique pine floors, vintage radiators, and cool custom/vintage materials give this cottage a clean, contemporary and interesting feel.
The best feature is an amazing 30 x 15 Master suite with a fireplace, king size bed, private bath, and french doors to a private balcony overlooking the Sakonnet. Lower level is smallish, with a 20 x 12 fireplaced kitchen/living area, a bedroom with bunk bed, a third sitting room with daybeds, and another full bath. There's a front porch, vintage cobblestone patio, and a fantastic hot/cold mahogany outdoor shower.
Its not a party house, its a tasteful little cottage, ok for entertaining in the summer but smallish for winter indoor dinners for more than 4 adults. I think the house is a perfect romantic weekend getaway, or great retreat for a couple or young family.
Little Compton is a charming seaside New England town featuring stone walls, farm stands, fresh seafood, and sandy beaches. Here's what the Providence Journal had to say in July of 2013: 'What the state’s historical commission wrote in a survey report about the town in 1986 remains true today: “Isolated and remote, Little Compton has been relatively free from the political pressures or economic forces that have transformed much of the rest of Rhode Island into a dense, urban and suburban metropolis.”
“The town’s resistance to change — at first a result of its isolation, later due to deliberate decisions — has preserved a remarkable legacy,” the report added. “... Little Compton presents an idyllic picture, complete with rolling topography, a quiltwork pattern of stone-wall-bounded farms and woodland, complemented by marshes, saltwater ponds, barrier beaches, a rocky promontory at Sakonnet Point, old farm complexes, comfortable summer houses, winding roads, and tree-lined villages.”
Newport is appx 30 minutes away, Providence or Boston an hour or so. Walk to the beach at the end of our street, or a short drive to numerous other beaches, nature trails, the town commons, Sakonnet Vineyards, Christmas tree farms, artists studios and antique shops.
Includes: Linens, towels, cookware, a couple of televisions with blu ray players, loads of dvds, blu rays, and books; wireless internet; coffee maker, nespresso machine. Bring your suitcase, bike, kayak, or running shoes and you should be fine!
I'm a lawyer practicing in a small firm in Rhode Island, a life long resident of the smallest state, and Rhode Island's biggest fan! I love it here, from the fascinating and eclectic downcity Providence, to historic Newport with its summer 'cottages' fit for kings and queens, to the quintessential New England seaside town Little Compton.
Steve Rodio purchased this cottage in 2011
I purchased this home to rehab and put on the market, but the more time I spent in Little Compton the harder it was to part with this house! My kids and I love going there, its the most relaxing place int he world - and one of the prettiest!
Think New England seaside communities and Little Compton is the point of reference. Stone walls, farmers markets, roadside stands with amazing fresh vegetables, the freshest seafood, a town commons with white steeple church and historic cemetery, gorgeous beaches, and wide open vistas of green grass and blue sea. Summer, fall or winter, Little Compton's charm and beauty remain the same.
My wife and I had a great stay at the cottage. Definitely recommend staying here!
We stayed here 2 nights this December and really enjoyed ourselves. We got to take our 12 year old shih tzu with us and he really enjoy a walk on the beach (that is a stones throw away) and cuddling on his bed in front of the gas fireplace. The cottage is a great size for 2-4 people and very comfortable. The artwork and decor is modern and beautiful, but still cozy. We loved the area of the home and how quiet it was. Our main objective was to relax, and we did. We did some cooking in and went out for a couple meals. The kitchen was easy to work in and has everything you need for a couple days. Just a warning, the smoke detectors are super sensitive. We set them off twice without any visible smoke. Little annoying, but they work at least! :) We hope to get back someday and enjoy this beautiful little cottage. Stay here if you can!
Anytime you book a house rental online you hope and pray that the photos of the property are accurate, up to date, and meet your high standards and expectations. My husband and I stay in five star properties all over the world so we sometimes say to ourselves that we are "lodging snobs" and expect nothing less than an upscale, immaculate experience when visiting a new locale. As we took our first walk through of this Little Compton property, we were pleased to see that this charming, well appointed cottage is exactly as described. Attention to detail was considered in design and structure. Decorating touches are eclectic, functional and pleasing to the eye. This water view home is very comfortable and has everything you would need for a complete short, or long, term stay. Steve and Danielle are at your disposal if you should need their assistance in any way. The Little Compton area is laid back and relaxing, but if you should desire more diverse activity and entertainment, Newport, RI is only a 40 minute drive away. This contemporary retreat not only met our high standards, but exceeded them. Thank you for a wonderful and warm stay in Rhode Island.
This "cottage" was renovated into a high-end hotel. Great location with a short walk to the beach. We had a fantastic time and didn't want to leave. Can't wait to return as soon as we can.
We had a great time here. The house was immaculate, and Steve provided thorough information, not only about the house but also useful articles and restaurant ideas. We loved every second. Thank you! !
Beautiful cottage. Perfect for 2-4 people or small family and was perfectly stocked. Little Compton is so refreshing and gorgeous. There was a quick drive to the ocean, but we could not find an ocean beach to go on - they were either private or member only beaches. We went to the beach on the river and it still was a great time. The sunsets were worth staying home for.! We really enjoyed going to the winery close by, we went 4 times. Great music and food. We will definitely be back!
Little Compton is a quaint New England coastal community, regarded for both its natural beauty and its exclusiveness. Visit the Town Commons with its white steeple church and colonial cemetery, enjoy one of the many area beaches, take a tour of Sakonnet Vineyards, get fresh local produce at one of the many farm stands or the Saturday Farmer's market, go antiquing, walk the nature trails, or simply stroll to the end of our street for a dip in the Sakonnet. If you enjoy running, rollerblading or bicycling, you will fall in love with the town's beautiful roads and trails. If the Kayak is more your style, you will be amazed at Narragansett Bay! Dinning choices nearby are plentiful, especially in Bristol (15 minute drive), which boasts some of RI's most creative and delicious kitchens. Of course, Newport is always fun for a night out or a day of touring the mansions.
