Comfortable Coastal Cottage Surrounded by Gardens 3 Min. From South Shore Beach

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and balcony
Hydrangea Cottage is bright and spacious with an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, large windows and skylights. Inside: a modern fully equipped kitchen (seating six) opens to a spacious den with large screen TV. The Master bedroom features a gas fireplace with stone hearth, king size bed and intimate lounge area which adds a romantic touch. The Queen size bedroom includes a large built in desk and working area with extensive bookcases, perfect for remote work during your vacation. Twin bedroom is decorated for youngsters and has large double closets. Hardwood floors throughout the house and tile floors in all three bathrooms enhance comfort. Central air and ceiling fans in every room cool even the hottest summer days. Outside: summer living and entertaining are easy on a half-acre of lawns and gardens with outdoor dining. Sliding glass doors from the Master bedroom and kitchen/den open to a wrap-around deck and expansive stone patio with grill. A raised hydrangea garden encloses the patio and lends color and privacy to outdoor gatherings. A new feature is a large mahogany outdoor shower. Also available are a thornless blackberry and blueberry patch with fruit ripening in the summer for your enjoyment. There is parking for 3 cars in the drive way. The cottage is on a quiet lane in a classic New England rural village sited on peninsula projecting into Narragansett Bay. The area offers magnificent sea views across idyllic pastures, dairies and farms. An easy walk leads to pristine Goosewing Beach, rated one of the top 5 best beaches in New England by Boston Magazine; it is a mile long and perfect for swimming, beach combing, sunning, kayaking and surfing. At night (with permit) one can have bonfires for a clam bake or cookout by the surf. Numerous nearby wildlife preserves, riding stables and nature trials offer bird watching, hiking and biking. To the West, Newport with it's famous 'gilded age' mansions, well preserved colonial district, numerous boutique shops and art galleries are a wonderful day trip just 35 min. away. Bristol's stately homes and gardens and Colt Park in Warren are delightful and all in easy reach. To the East, New Bedford, home of largest fishing fleet in New England is just 25 miles and offers superb seafood restaurants, a quaint 18th century town quarter and the renowned Whaling Museum. Ferries leave daily for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island. To the North in Fall River (25 min. away) is the WWII historic navy sight featuring the battleship USS Massachusetts, WWII PT boats like President Kennedy's, a WWII US submarine a small navy museum and other sights. Closer attractions include golf courses, canoe and kayak rentals on the Westport River and wine tasting at Sakonnett vineyards. Tiverton Four Corners offers crafts outlets, restaurants, ice cream and art galleries set in historic grist mill buildings on rushing brook. Numerous farm stands offer local produce, especially berries and fruits, as well as fresh fish. September through mid October is a glorious time at Hydrangea Cottage in Little Compton. There are fewer people on the nearby beaches, the Ocean is at it's warmest, the days are balmy, the nights cool and crisp. The fall harvest fills the shelves of road farm stands. There are no lines for area attractions including the Newport Mansions, historic sites and museums.

The perfect get away
We couldn't have asked for a better place to reconnect with our kids after so much time apart due to the pandemic. Donatella provided great tips ahead of time and we planned accordingly. The Commons restaurant next to Wilburs General store in the center of town had the most delicious fried clams and fries combined with the cole slaw from Wilburs made for a great easy meal. I recommend picking up lobsters at the Sakonnet lobster Co. a short drive away from a super sweet Lobsterman. Picking up veggies and treats at Wishingstone farm around the corner is a must. The people were lovely , the produce was magnificent and they have the biggest cat we had ever seen. Skimming stones on the beach at sunset completed the perfect long weekend. Enjoy!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful, special retreat
This was our first visit to Little Compton and we loved the pastoral setting. Hydrangea Cottage is a very special property in peaceful surroundings with gorgeous gardens. We loved the open, airy quality of the comfortable living space with the high ceiling and there are plenty of windows and light. The house was well appointed and linens supplied were good quality. The outdoor shower was a real treat. We were able to walk or drive to the local South Shore beach although, without the pass, parking, was not always available. We drove to Horseneck Beach one day when we couldn’t get in locally and it was an easy drive. We lived outside on the comfortable, spacious deck for the 2 weeks having been cooped up in small NY apartments for 5 months and appreciated the quiet setting for reading and relaxing. Although we are not big TV watchers, we did want to watch a couple of movies we brought along and the only change we would suggest is to update the television as it is many years old. All in all, we had a wonderful 2 weeks and would return to this idyllic vacation spot.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful summer escape
We loved staying at this well-loved property. We spent so much time reading and relaxing on the deck, walking to the beach, and eating the local produce from near-by farms.
