About the property

Beautifully restored, 4 bedroom, three bathroom private residence (Sleeps 6-8)

We are truly pleased to offer the Historic Captain Philip Cory House for guests visiting the Tiverton and Little Compton area. We feel the Captain Philip Cory House nicely compliments our other VRBO properties, The Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No.1. located a few doors down along with Potters Corner in neighboring Little Compton. The Captain Philip Cory House is located in the Historic Tiverton Four Corners Area. We provide complimentary Sakonnet Farm Fresh Eggs (seasonally) and Keriug Coffee during your stay.

The Captain Philip Cory House (circa 1770) is a 2 ½ -story, wood clapboard, Federal-inspired, post-and- beam timber frame structure, set gable end to the road, with a 3-bay facade, having three large, brick, interior chimneys (6 fireplaces and an original kitchen bake oven). The house employs the classical details of the Federal and Greek Revival styles, a historic architectural evolution reflected throughout this house.

The Captain Philip Cory House has three upstairs bedrooms. Two with full sized beds, one with twin bunk beds. The three bedrooms are situated around a central living room with an LED TV. There is a fourth bedroom/sitting room down stairs with two twin beds. There are two full bathrooms upstairs. The central bathroom has a marble shower and a Jacuzzi tub and the master bathroom is brand new with a tiled shower. There is a half bath downstairs. WI-FI is provided free of charge for those of you who like to stay in touch while you are on vacation.

The grounds are stunning and impeccably maintained featuring a parterre box garden and a serpentine perennial garden behind 18th century dry-laid fieldstone walls. Large London Plane trees are prominent landscape features, and some may be original to the date of construction of the house. There is a fire pit area in the yard and we have kiln dried firewood for sale at Sakonnet Farm if you should like to enjoy some outside evening time.

After you are done strolling the grounds, amble a short five minute walk north to visit the heart of Historic Tiverton Four Corners, a quaint three-hundred year old cross-roads village. There you will find unique shops, restaurants, Gray’s Ice Cream shop, an Arts Center, Art Galleries, and many other establishments. If you plan on cooking, be sure to visit one of the nearby roadside stands for some tender, sweet, fresh-picked corn.

If you find the The Captain Philip Cory house already booked for the dates you wish please check out our two other vacation rentals located here on VRBO. The Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No.1 is located just a few doors down and Potters Corner is located in neighboring Little Compton. Potters Corner is a brand new 3000s.f. Colonial with high end appointments. All Sakonnet Farm properties are maintained with the same high level attention to detail.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kristin- We had such an amazing stay for our wedding weekend. We enjoyed our rehearsal dinner clam bake on Saturday. The kids had fun on the swing set, playing kickball and wiffle ball in the yard. It was such a great day on Sunday, we enjoyed getting ready and taking pictures here at the Capt. Philip Cory House before heading over to the Meeting House for our wedding.

We enjoyed spending time with our family and friends!! We wish that your future guests enjoy the house as much as we did!

Thank you!

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

I am local Tiverton resident, and had friends and family stay at the Captain Philip Cory House as housing for our nearby wedding.

The reviews I received from those (tough to impress) people were spectacular!

Spacious, neat, and gorgeous. The home is in a lovely area, and meticulously cared for.

Kristin's communication was superb, and she was extremely helpful when I needed to make a change to the reservation.

Thank you for helping to make our wedding such a success! (and hope you meet you at some point!!

Extremely Comfortable & Great for larger groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic girls weekend at the Capt. Philip Cory house. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. We enjoyed relaxing & catching up, while sharing some apps and cooking a meal on our first night. The dining table was amazing for all 8 of us to sit and have dinner. The kitchen was beyond well stocked. We were able to make a large pasta meal with the great large pots and pans. The provided coffee was a really nice extra of the house. On Saturday we drove into Newport to visit the Newport Winery and the beach. Newport was close enough that we came back to the house to shower & get ready before heading back to have dinner at Benjamin's Restaurant & Raw Bar. The two full bathrooms were fantastic & provided everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the area was quiet & relaxing. The driveway provided plenty of room for parking and the outside space was really great. Kristin was so easy to work with, she checked in (via VRBO) on Saturday morning and was quick to respond to any questions. I would definitely recommend the Capt. Philip Cory house to anyone coming to the area. I would love to stay here again.

Classic New England

  • 5 of 5

My extended family, including three children (age 3, 5, and 7) stayed here over a weekend for a family wedding. The big old house accomodated us well. If you want modern bells and whistles, this is not for you. But if you seek a classic New England experience, this wonderful old house and its numerous antiques will charm you. I must add that the book collection is admirable too! The kids were thrilled by the jungle gym in the garden. And we appreciated the kind gesture of fresh farm eggs left for us in the fridge on our arrival. Thanks for memorable weekend!

Beautiful home and yard

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful interior and exterior home! The drive in was gorgeous! The children had plenty of space to play and played on the playground everyday. The kitchen had nearly everything you'd need including k-cups for the coffee maker. The home was furnished comfortably and it was so neat to see the antiques and teach our children what these items were used for back in the day. We would've loved to stay a few days longer! Thank you so much for sharing this home with us.

Lovely New England experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding in Newport. Travel in and out of Newport was very manageable. In addition there were shops and galleries to check out in Tiverton, and beautiful places in the area to check out.

The home was well equipped, and bedrooms and baths were comfortable and very adequate.

We loved that the home had retained so many original elements.

We especially enjoyed the table and chairs outside the back door - enjoyed our morning coffee there, as well as after dinner hanging-out.

Our stay was in early July, and the only thing I was wishing for was that more of the windows could be opened. There were room air conditioners, but during the cool evenings of our stay I would have preferred to have windows opened.

This home is just lovely, and very much an old New England experience.

We were able to find a local dog-sitter (through a Vet clinic in Tiverton), and that worked out very well too.
