We have a local house manager available if something urgent comes up, he lives locally, but other than the check in and check out process there is very little interaction with anyone.

The Neighborhood

Private Beach Access!
Quiet and peaceful surrounding that abuts the ocean and a bird sanctuary with hiking trails.

A Stone House stay includes a walk to the beach followed by a contemplative retreat and a quiet dinner with family.

A writer's haven with water views.....
a place away from the city - but not too far from 'urbanitity'.

Getting around

Not much for public transit. A bus does run up and down main road Tiverton but you pretty much need a car to get around. Bikes are helpful for short jaunts.

The Stone House is an epic retreat house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • The house was even more beautiful than in the pics! The grounds around the house are lovely and provide almost total privacy from any neighbors- which was a great escape from the craziness of Newport and Providence. And it was a quick 20-30 trip to everywhere we needed to go from Tiverton. Thomas's brother Patrick (email hidden)-- had some great suggestions for places to go and eat. The house is large enough to accommodate the whole family and give everyone a little privacy, though it ended up just being 2 of us.

    Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful historic house with lots of charm! Hope to come back again in the future!

  • We were welcomed warmly, helpfully instructed on use of the appliances, etc., and felt very comfortable in this extraordinary house.

  • Fantastic stay. Would choose this kind of quirky old house over a standard beach house anytime. The living room is nine times larger than you think. Huge! Outdoor shower was wonderful. Only about a 15-minute drive to a sandy beach. And a short walk through the neighborhood to a little pebbly spot on the water. Nice kitchen and outdoor BBQ. A wonderful old house. Can't wait to come back soon!

  • This (email hidden). My wife and I with out two adult daughters really enjoyed the beautiful central lodge room and the privacy of the separate bedrooms. We enjoyed preparing and making meals in the updated kitchen. The privacy of the entire place is wonderful.

    I highly recommend this place! We hope to come back.

  • My family and I stayed at the Cavanaugh's home in Tiverton for the weekend of my brother's college graduation. It was a wonderful weekend and such a beautiful home! The great room is breathtaking and the rooms are airy and quaint. The Cavanaugh's were very pleasant and accommodating and we would definitely go back to this house again. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!!

  • We had the most fantastic stay here. We spent the weekend with our daughters and one of their financees. We could not have asked for a more comfortable, inviting space for the weekend. I like to cook and it was especially wonderful to have all the pots and pans, dishes etc. that you could want. Also all new applance which was great too. Patrick was so accommodating about our wacky arrival schedule. We are already planning a return trip - it was the highlight of my year! Thanks for everything...

  • What fun we had in the historic Stone House! And it is located in the sweetest New England town - Tiverton. Quite a number of artsy shops, good food and a classic fish market where the owner advises on how to cook his products! Oh, and some really nice beaches nearby! Patrick was very generous with his time - great host!

  • The stone house in tiverton was beautiful and beat our expectations. It is spacious and relaxing and I would definitely stay there again in the future when visiting the area. The host was very generous providing us any information we needed around the area, making our stay a pleasant vacation.

  • I enjoyed a truly lovely weekend at this charming house with my mom, sister and two close friends. The house is amazing, we definitely felt we were in a historic home but the house is comfortable and pleasant, we didn't feel as if we were in a museum (although, someone in our party commented that she felt like this was the closest she would ever get to staying someplace as grand as the Newport mansions). The kitchen was well supplied with everything you would need to cook up whatever provisions you brought with you. The house is quiet but we didn't feel secluded. We grabbed coffee from two different places (Coastal Roasters and Provender--we had yummy pastries & still warm muffins from here as well) on two separate mornings and enjoyed drinking it while sitting on the little stone beach just down the road from the house. Aside from the few people we saw clamming, we were pretty much the only people there both days. It was beautiful. Thomas and Patrick were accommodating and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Stone House again, if anything I would plan to stay longer. I feel lucky to have spent time there. I'm happy that the Cavanaugh family is graciously sharing their special house.

I am a director of an internationally touring dance company, (website hidden). We dance on the sides of buildings, you know, vertical performance. I also work with environmental organizations like (email hidden) and their agents of change. I believe a home is meant to be shared. So I share my homes, my families' homes and I share other people's homes when I travel. It's like sharing stories but without the fire.
