We are excited to have connected with the South Coast Artist community and other local artists to showcase their Artwork in Potters Corner. Enjoy meandering through Potter's Corner enjoying the various and unique Artwork that is so prevalent in Little Compton and the surrounding area. We provide complimentary Sakonnet Farm Fresh Eggs (seasonally) and Keriug Coffee during your stay.

Potter's Corner is located at the bottom of Potterville Rd where in the 1800’s an old mill could be found at the base of Cold Brook; the outflow from Simmons Pond out to Quicksand Pond. Enjoy an evening sitting on the deck listening to the waves crashing at the beaches.

Little Compton is perfectly situated for short day trips to the Newport attractions, Middletown Beaches, Martha's Vineyard, Boston, Cape Cod, Horseneck Beach, Providence, etc… Potters Corner is the perfect space to host a small gathering of family or friends. We are less than 5 miles from Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyard and also close to Westport Vineyards. We have hosted groups of friends looking to get away for the weekend, Bachelorette Parties, Girl’s Weekends, Family Reunions and even a wedding.

If you find the Potters Corner already booked for the dates you wish please check out our two other vacation rentals located here on VRBO.

All Sakonnet Farm properties are maintained with the same high level attention to detail

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.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best rentals we have stayed at since we started using VRBO! The house is beautiful with lots of open space on the main floor and tastefully done bedrooms on the second floor. The kitchen is stocked with the basics needed to cook full meals and fresh eggs were waiting for us upon arrival. It is located in a quiet neighborhood in a small, quaint town which is close enough for day trips to Salem, MA (2 hours) and Cap Cod (1 1/2 depending on where you go). Kristin's information on local restaurants is spot on and you must try Gray's Ice Cream.

Visit their animals as they have one of the friendliest pigs we have ever seen :-)

Loved our stay and are seriously considering visiting again next year.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at Potter's Corner while we were attending a family wedding. The house was truly a "home" away from home. The furnishings were very nice and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and dinner. We would not hesitate to return! Little Compton is a quaint and bucolic town. It was very nice!

Beautiful property in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this spacious and luxuries home. Everyone was so impressed by the master bedroom with its sauna, Jacuzzi tub and multi-room speaker system. We made extensive use of the Keurig coffee, the propane grill and a kitchen that was stocked with all the dishes and cooking utensils we needed to make homemade meals.

Feedback for the owner: Two of the chairs at the dining room table had lose arms. Looks like they were just missing a bolt or two.

Excellent accommodation in Little Compton

  • 5 of 5

A warm, comfortable and practical "home away from home" with very responsive hosts. My family and I were in the area for a wedding, and this property was conveniently located. It was also a short drive to a very nice beach, close to the central commons (you must visit Wilbur's Store!). The house was everything it is "advertised" as. Everything was in perfect order, and was very accommodating for five of us. We didn't get a chance to use the grill, but the outdoor deck and nice open back yard would make very a very pleasant outdoor cook-out. If we were ever in the area again we would definitely try and rebook here!

Overall fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely beautiful! I have been using home away for a few years now and this is in my top favorite!

The house is very clean and nicely updated. The kitchen is well stocked. Open concept.

3 beds. 3 baths. Each room has a good amount of space. But that master bedroom is amazing! A sauna, pebble shower/steam room, Jacuzzi tub, and small bar with ample space and high ceilings. It was hard to leave that room!

Nice patio off the side, large back yard, and speakers through the house.

The owner Kristin was very pleasant to work with. She emailed back very quickly and with any information needed.

I recommend to anyone visiting the area. Very nice town, quiet and close to the beach!

I will be back in the near future =)
