About the property

Great for Family Reunions - We still have limited openings for Summer 2017!

Complex of 6 sleeping cottages, one 2 bdr lodge and one 3 bdr house. Sleeps 32.

Boulder Cottages (BC) is a unique and stunning compound of sleeping cottages, lodges and amenities nestled on five acres of land, water fronted on Quonochontaug “Quonnie” Pond in South County, Rhode Island. Quonnie Pond offers countless calm water activities as it is one of the many salt ponds in Rhode Island protected by a barrier beach.

The complex includes six cabins, one three bedroom 'Pondhouse', the 'Gameroom', and the incredible 'Boulder Lodge.' The entire complex can sleep up to 34 guests. Boulder Cottages provides a unique setting for special celebrations (limit 60): wedding reception, family reunion, corporate retreats or just a friends getaway. We can help you have that one-of-a-kind a special event!

Each cabin has full bath, kitchenette, and air conditioning. The Pondhouse has one queen room with shared bath, two twin bedrooms, second bath with shower, small kitchen, and deck. The Boulder Lodge has a fully equipped Chef's kitchen, living area with stone fireplace, large screen TV, state of the art audio/video, WIFI, A/C, an eating area for approximately 32 people, two baths, and sleeping for 7. A wonderful place to gather for meals, and together time. The property has wireless internet throughout.

For the beach goer, BC offers your own private beach, with parking for 6-8 cars, bar-b-que and beach box with chairs at East Beach Barrier located on East Beach Road. Enjoy the sun, surf, and sand - or just walk for miles to the east or west. An incredible beach!

Whether you enjoy sunsets viewed from the dock, a quiet read sitting on your own beach, fishing, campfire stories, a New England lobster bake or just the company of your good friends and family, BC offers a taste of past, nearly forgotten, simpler times. The cottages were first created in the mid-1950’s with a casual, almost “fishing camp” atmosphere. New owners have completely renovated BC with the idea of keeping the nostalgia but at the same time enhancing the charm and amenities. All structures have been meticulously appointed and decorated by a local interior “artist.”

The cottages are situated in a natural, shaded and completely private community to be shared exclusively by one group of guests per week.

We provide the sleeping cottages, game room, horseshoe pit, campfire pit, private dock, kayaks and private ocean front beach... just add the memories.

Amazing Spot for a 50th Birthday Gathering!!

  • 5 of 5

The Boulder Cottages is the most amazing place! I held a 50th birthday celebration for my husband and had friends come in from all over. The main house became the general meeting area for the group – it is new and updated with very tasteful décor. The kitchen is so well equipt that we cooked all the meals, plus dinner for over 50 (it has an industrial size grill that’s incredible for cooking for a big group). When our guests arrived they were stunned by how beautiful the cottages are – great beds, updated baths with great linens and towels. The compound also has a game room and fire pit that’s fun for late night activities for all ages – music, fousball, pool, and hanging by the fire provided great bonding for all. We had the most amazing, memorable weekend that will never be forgotten! This place is unbelievable – a must do!!!!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My kids and their cousins planned a family reunion that included 8 adult cousins, 7 spouses, 8 kids ages 6 months-6years, and three grandmothers. Boulder Cottages provided separate cabins/houses for each family, plenty of room for the kids to run around, wonderful cooking and eating space for shared meals, some kayaking, and access to a private beach. It was perfect.

After 15 years of Family Reunions, Boulder Cottages was by far the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

With almost 20 in our group ranging from grandparents to kids of 7 and 8 years old, all of whom have VERY strong opinions :) the Cottages were the very first location to receive universal acclaim! Everyone had an activity, the facilities were quite literally first-class, and as meticulously investigative as my brothers and I are, there was nothing we would've set up our done differently!!!! Absolutely loved the place, the beach and especially the magnificent views at the salt pond. Can't wait to return......

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the Wickford cottage over the 4th holiday- it was clean, well equiped and very comfortable. After a long day at the beach it was great to sit in the shade with a cool breeze. The cottage also had an air conditioner which was a bonus for sleeping on a hot night. Easy stroll to the dock for kayaking or clamming in quonnie pond.

Corporate Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our firm has hosted our corporate retreat at the Boulder Cottages multiple times and it has been a great venue. The main house provides a great space for meals and gatherings, and the cottages provide privacy for individual guests. The grounds and game room create ample opportunities for team building and casual interactions. The area has multiple dining destinations and numerous sporting and leisure activities to satisfy the wide variety of tastes and interests of a larger group. The Boulder Cottages are an excellent venue for corporate retreats, family reunions, or a group getaway.
