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'.
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 host contacted us in advance and arranged a meeting and greeting time that was flexible and convenient. He was very thorough and helpful. The home was very much as advertised, unique and very historic. It is a family home, not a hotel and that was fine with us. The great room is very well furnished and comfortable. Our daughter was getting married nearby and we had other family members join us. They were all very impressed with this interesting and historic home.
Had an amazing time at the Stone House in Tiverton. The house is absolutely beautiful. Patrick was extremely helpful and informative and always kept in contact. Would definitely recommend staying at this great house.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Patrick was a communicative, thorough and helpful host, and his home is really special - like a building on the grounds of an English castle. The enormous great room, a pleasant kitchen, outdoor shower, and interesting nooks and crannies all over the house for kids to explore all made for a relaxing, fun and comfortable visit.
We had a wonderful week staying at the Stone House in Tiverton. The house is beautiful and very well equipped and comfortable for being almost 100 years old. The neighborhood is gorgeous - the entire region is beautiful. Our host was so warm and welcoming. He gave us several great recommendations for getting the most out of the area.
We had a wonderful stay at this very special Stone House. It was everything we expected and more. Very comfortable! We used the kitchen often and it had everything we needed. Our favorite feature was the outdoor shower!! Patrick was great to communicate with and even gave us a little bit of history about the house. We loved it and would definitely recommend it!
We are on an extended stay in NYC, so we were looking for a quiet getaway to relay. And we certainly found it at The Stone House! Thomas' brother, Patrick met us at the door, and gave us the tour. the smell of the house is amazing...so much history and life there! Patrick was a very good host, with the fresh flowers, local newspapers and current magazines....and sitting with us for a bit to make sure we knew where the local markets, Liquor Store, best restaurants, etc.
Once Patrick left, it really sunk in that we were here for a few days. Definitely not enough time. The House has a feeling to it that's hard to describe. Both my wife and I felt welcomed by it, and put at ease. We ended up staying at the house and just relaxing most of the time, rather than getting out to Newport. The house is just too amazing to leave.
The kitchen is perfect, we did a crab boil with crab we bought from the local fishmonger. Really amazing prices and quality seafood.
I just cant say enough good things about the Stone House, and I hope to return someday soon. Tiverton is also a great little town, we really enjoyed walking around it. Not crowded, amazing scenery and food.
We got married this summer at a nearby lighthouse and stayed at the Cavanagh's lovely, historic home before the ceremony. It was incredibly spacious and well-decorated with a sort of relaxed grandeur that suited our tastes very well. Thomas and Patrick were very friendly throughout the process, even when wrinkles arose, and we really appreciated how responsive they were to all communications, especially because we were juggling a lot of variables both pre- and post-wedding. This would be a great place for a couple of graduate students to hole-up for a few weeks and work on a thesis, peruse their library, stroll around and think aloud. It has that air of academic solemnity but is by no means stuffy.
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.
