A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN!!!
READ OUR REVIEWS!!!
The cottage is lakefront and approx. 200 ft. from a Private Town Beach, with 2 lifeguards. It is a Spring Fed lake so the water is always super fresh and invigorating...It doesn't get any better than this!
If you are looking for laid back, relaxing, and just plain, old fashioned comfort, this is the best spot on the lake.
There is a large deck in front to enjoy the view, and front & back two 3 season porches, each with a lovely porch swing.
My Grandparents built this beautiful home in the 1940's and even my Great Grandmother too! Pictures on our front porch, there are photos of all three of them with shovels in hand, starting to dig the foundation!!!
Pictured next to them is my Dad, about the age of 12, on his bicycle.
Grampa has built all of the stone walls and the foundation with large stones, carried in buckets, one by one. No power tools back then, just good old fashioned SWEAT EQUITY!
So, to me, this is an HEIRLOOM, it is treated with the utmost respect, in all who come here, every nail hammered by his hand.
We have completely renovated the whole house, little by little over the past few years, by adding a more user friendly big bathroom shower, and a washer and dryer for your convenience, and mine!
Enclosing the back porch was a big renovation for us, but now it is so comfortable sitting on the back porch swing and reading a book or two.
The lake is stocked with Trout by the RI- D.E.M., and is a favorite of Northwest RI fishermen. Located one mile from the cottage is Historic Chepachet Village, a quaint little downtown area, with Brown and Hopkins General Store, which is the oldest General Store in continuous operation. There are also antique shops and restaurants, laundry, a grocery store, and post office. It is also the home of the 'Ancients and Horribles Parade', which is the second oldest Fourth of July Parade in this area next to Bristol, RI.
Chepachet is also historically important, as it was the sight of the Dorr Rebellion, we have several books at the cottage in reference to this famous battle.
We also have some other books that are all in reference to this area of the country that have known to be haunted! REALLY!!!
The famous Lizzie Borden house, on Second Street in Fall River, MA, is just about 40 minutes away, I have to say, that it is a very interesting tour, very informative, and a bit eerie , if you like mystery and intrigue go visit and see for yourself, it is also said to be haunted! Give it a try..

Rhonda Faria purchased this cottage in 1940
My family has owned the property for this house for over 70 years. We have enjoyed countless family cookouts, swimming and just relaxing, or going to the famous Fourth of July Parade downtown.
Our own Grandchildren love the porch swings on both front and back porches...and I am sure my Grandparents would be so proud of all the updates we have made...but also keeping the traditions and always made with love!
Get away from it all, but your still close enough to grab your morning coffee from Dunkin Donuts, less than 1 mile from the house! Great restaurants downtown, bakery, pharmacy, Post Office, Dunkin Donuts, or just take a ride in the countryside, there are plenty of maps at the house and a huge amount of pamphlets with tons of ideas of places to go.
A little piece of Heaven!
The cottage was every bit as charming as advertised and then some. The location was perfect and the owners couldn't be nicer. They even left us homebaked cookies and all the fixings for smoores - what more could you ask for.
This is a lovely little spot by a lovely lake. Walk to swim in the gentle waters. Float for hours. Grill on the deck. Rhonda is both delightful and accommodating. The property has all you need for eating and sleeping. The bed is comfy. Go. Enjoy.
We had a relaxing weekend in the beautiful grandmas cottage that is right across a beautiful lake. Walking up and having coffee looking at the serene lake was quite something.
If you are planning on kayaking I would recommend taking your own kayak as there are no rental places nearby.
If you're looking for spacious rooms, look elsewhere. The cabin is small, but big enough for excellent family time. From the moment you enter the property you feel at home. It is peaceful and quiet. The location was perfect for day trips and antiquing. I spent a week there with 4 children(all teenagers) and we had a great time. Swimming at the beach, a short walk away. Smores in the firepit in the back yard. Giggles and laughs throughout the night . All in all, a great place to stay.
We almost do not want to review this home in fear that it will be constantly booked and we won't be able to reserve it AGAIN:)
It is a quaint little cabin. The big difference from other houses we have rented is this IS a HOME!!! You feel that from the first conversation with Rhonda!
We WILL look to rent this cabin again!!!
Stayed for a week visiting family and the house was great. We have two young kids and Rhonda was nice enough to have a pack and play, highchair and kids bed already set up when we got there. Both the front and the back porch were great for the relatives to relax and enjoy time with the grandkids. People were leaving the same day we arrived and the place was fully cleaned and ready for our arrival. We flew in fairly late and Rhonda was more then happy to meet my father to show him around as well as give him keys prior to our arrival. We will look forward to another stay next time we are back.
Very centrally located, there is lots to do here, or just relax and do nothing at all! The cottage is 20 min. west of Providence, RI on Route 44; 20 min. east of Putnam, Ct, a huge antique town also on Rt. 44; 40 min. from Foxwoods & Mohegan Casinos, Rt. 44W to 395 S in Uncasville, CT. To the coastal beaches it is less than an hour. You can cross all of Rhode Island in less than an hour!
It is 20 Min. to the Federal Hill Section of Prov. RI, with an unbelievable selection of some of the finest Italian restaurants and bakeries this side of Italy!!! MANGIA!!!!!!!!!!
Columbus Day weekend is the Famous Scituate Art Festival, Downtown Scituate, RI Village, countless artists and artisans. Something for everyone in the family! And much, much more! 45 min. to historic and scenic Newport, RI w/ the mansions, beaches, shopping, dining and entertainment!
