About

We are fourth generation lovers of Westport Point but we can't be here in the winters because we are academics. We are looking for someone to care for the home as much as we do while enjoying all Westport has to offer: peace and tranquility, walking on the beach, kayaking, canoeing or sailing, gazing out to the river, chatting with neighbors. Our home is perfect for a visiting academic at one of the colleges and universities nearby or for someone who is still working remotely. 35 minutes to Providence. Close enough to Boston (1:10) if you only need to commute one or two days a week. The house can easily accommodate a family with two kids and two work-from-home parents but it would also be great for a person or a couple who want to write, create, or think. We would reduce the rent if there were only one or two people in the house.
