Waterfront Wednesday: Oceanfront Cottage on Block Island, R.I.

Photo by: Zillow A home site right on the water’s edge, high above the bluffs, provides panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean for this cottage. Named Clinton Cottage after former President Bill Clinton’s 1996 visit, the Block Island, R.I., house has been completely renovated.

With summer almost upon us, we’re dreaming of waterfront getaways here at Cool Houses Daily. If you’ve got homes by the coast on your mind as well, you’ll love our new weekly series, “Waterfront Wednesdays.” Our first pick: a charming shingle-style cottage located right on the water’s edge in the relaxing summer community of Block Island, R.I.

Dubbed Clinton Cottage (after former President Bill Clinton’s 1996 visit), the home has been fully renovated, and the finished product so charming we can hardly stand it. Check out the photo gallery to see what we mean – you’ll soon be wishing you were curled up with a good book on that window seat, or admiring the ocean while soaking in the bathroom’s claw-foot tub.

Sited high above the bluffs, Clinton Cottage lets you admire both the sunrise and the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. With scenery like that, it’s easy to see why The Nature Conservancy has designated Block Island as "one of the 12 last great places in the Western Hemisphere."
