3 BEDS, 2 BATHS, SLEEPS 8, WATER VIEW

Major updates and renovations took place over the winter on this water view cottage in a great family neighborhood. Both the inside and the outside have been upgraded. Shell Cottage is ready to host you on your vacation.

Private neighborhood beach one block from the Cottage. Major ocean beaches (Narragansett Town, Scarborough, Roger Wheeler/Sand Hill Cove and Salty Brine, East Matunuck, Matunuck, and Charlestown) vary from 4 miles to 15 miles away. Block Island ferry and charter fishing boats also 5 miles away.

The open kitchen was recently renovated and has all 4 major appliances: stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen is also filled with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, utensils etc., everything to make your vacation cooking easier. The main living area is right next to the kitchen with a large bay window with a partial water view, and flat-panel TV. Relax on the screen porch under the dark red foliage of our large maple trees on a hot summer day or enjoy evening breeze bug-free. The dining room overlooks the over-large backyard and opens through the large glass slider door onto a deck.

Bedroom 1 has a daybed that opens into a king or two singles. Bedroom 2 has a queen-bed and looks out to the back yard. Bedroom 3 also has a queen-bed and looks towards Point Judith Pond. The main floor bathroom has a full tub-shower.

Downstairs, the recreation room has a futon couch that opens into a queen-sized bed and can sleep 2. The entertainment center has a flat screen TV and DVD player. There is newly rehabbed bathroom on this level too, with stall shower. Laundry facilities with full size washer and dryer, adjoin the rec room. Walkout to the picnic and grilling area and the very large backyard from here.

When the ocean breeze is not enough to overcome the summer heat, the house has central air conditioning. Oil heat for the colder months keeps the house toasty warm. Off-street parking for 3-4 cars. ~1,500 square feet in total.

Shell Cottage is available for your summer vacation, with a 3-night minimum rental required from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Book now and enjoy this newly refreshed and updated house near the water.

About the Owner

Mother and daughter team, Trudy & Karen, have owned Shell Cottage for more than four years and have been diligently upgrading it bit by bit. Trudy has lived on Harbour Island since her college days, and was a teacher in the Narragansett school system before retiring a few years ago. Karen grew up on Harbour Island but now lives on the opposite side of Narragansett Bay, though she is often on the Island. Both Trudy & Karen are active in the neighborhood property Association, helping to ensure this coastal gem stays beautiful and accessible.

nice little cottage in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was a positive one, although the weather wasn't perfect. We were still able to hit the beach and visit the nearby attractions.

Felt this was a affordable place well maintained and Jill and Trudy were very accommodating.

The one surprise was the stairway between the top and lower sections is a bit narrow, but otherwise its a nicely kept home not very large, but comfortable with a nice kitchen and nice sized back yard. we utilized the propane grill and enjoyed the fact it was so close to the beach.

To the property managers thanks again for your diligence

Owner's Response: Yasir, Thanks so much for staying at Shell Cottage. We are so happy you and your family were able to enjoy your vacation time in Narragansett. You are correct about the stairs. Because it is an older house, the stairs are a throwback to how they were designed in the 1950's. Thanks for taking such good care of the house during your stay. We hope you will come back on your next visit to the area. All the best, Karen & Trudy

Comfortable and clean

Great experience from the beginning - working with Karen and Trudy to opening the door and finding a nice home provided with lovely amenities. Lovely screened in porch and deck to enjoy, good sized dining room and easy kitchen to navigate and well stocked to prepare our clam chowder. My brother-in-law loved the downstairs shower!

Amenities

From the Owner

Private neighborhood beach a short walk from the house. The 40+ year old red King maple trees are magnificent, providing shade to the screen porch and unusual maroon leaves. Our back yard is one of the largest on Harbour Island, giving guests tons of room to let the kids run around, set up volleyball, or enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends.
