Overview

About the property

Awesome Year-Round Getaway and Sunset Views Over the Sakonnet!

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!

About Steve Rodio

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

Why Steve Rodio chose Rhode Island Coastal

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

The little Compton cottage was just an enjoyable stay! Upon entry, the 1st floor is both funky and charming, with references to its proximity to the water, and modern touches of fur throws and artwork. The modern kitchen with great appliances (loved the griddle burner on the stove) made food preparation a breeze. My only wish for it was more cookware...therefore only 4 stars. Otherwise, both bathrooms, with ample shower space, and the shower upstairs with its jets and rainfall shower head was wonderful. The skylights in the bathroom were also a nice added touch. Sitting out on the deck you could even hear ocean waves! The neighborhood is quiet and just a quick walk to the water makes you feel like your at the ocean. The view of Newport and the lighthouse is quite nice on the shore. Other amenities such as the fireplaces we did not utilize due to the warm weather, but they were nice touches, and the interesting artwork everywhere was thoughtful and appealing to the eye. I wish I could give 4.5 stars, because the cookware was a minor issue in this case, but if I had planned to cook more, there were limited pots but there was a large cookpot and griddle, not a complaint, just a suggestion. But we definately plan a return trip to Little Compton Cottage in the near future

Beautiful cottage close to the water

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house for a vacation. After our experience at the Little Compton Cottage I know we will be using VRBO for our next trip. This place had all the amenities, relaxing location, and an easy walk to the water for our family to enjoy. Stephen and Danielle were very responsive and made our stay that much more pleasant. Great family memories were made at this house and we couldn't be happier. Thank you

Wonderful Cottage in a Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter had a fabulous week in Little Compton. It's a wonderful home in a perfect location - both conducive to some much needed relaxation.

In the best of ways, there's simply not much else to say - great home (with an owner who was all you could ask for), lovely views, beautifully designed and decorated.

The property has been nicely renovated and the location is perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cottage for 2 weeks. It was a great experience. The owner has completly renovated this home. It has a vintage look inside but with all the modern conveniences. The upstairs bedroom is spaciious with a view of the water. There are french doors that lead to a deck off the bedroom where you can watch beautiful sunsets. The upstairs bathroom is large with a big walk in shower and a clawfoot tub. The towels were plush and there were even two robes provided for guests which was a nice touch.

There is a large deck off the kitchen with a dining set. The house is an east/west exposure so in the morning the sun shines on the back deck and into the kitchen. So it is nice to have coffee on the deck. The kitchen was well equiped with all the essentials. The beach is a short walk from the house and it is a short drive into the town of Little Compton where there is an old fashioned general store that has just about everything you need.

Also the owner is very accessible by e-mail or phone if you have questions.

I have rented other cottages in the Tiverton/Little Compton area in the past but this is the best one I have rented.

Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped cottage in a spectacular location. The master bedroom takes up the whole top floor and has an unforgettable view of the water. The cottage was spotless. Steve provides very useful information on the area and I learned things I never knew about the area and I grew up there.

Location

Nearest Beach
0.1 Miles
Quiet secluded sandy beach at end of our street
Car: recommended

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.
