Located at the head of Charlestown Beach Road, A Shore Thing at Charlestown Beach is an 1830's farmhouse that has been lovingly updated to provide comfortable accommodations with three private bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms.

Restaurants, deli, bakery and shops are close by.


The space

Located at the head of Charlestown Beach Road, A Shore Thing is beautifully sited on nearly two acres of park-like grounds that provide a meditation garden, places to relax on three patios, rocking chairs on the front porch to catch an afternoon breeze or nap, and expansive lawn and perennial gardens to roam. Our evening dark skies provide a perfect opportunity to enjoy the starlit heavens.

Charlestown Beach, Charlestown Breachway and beautiful salt ponds are just a mile walk, bike ride or drive down the street. Fishing, kayaking, boating, birding and beaching are right there. Other Charlestown and area beaches and ponds are within easy driving distance and provide opportunities for both salt water and fresh water activities. Check out
for lots of other things to see and do.

The entry foyer and living room offer comfortable places to sit and read, play games or just be together for conversation and sharing the fun of the day. Built in 1830, this farmhouse Inn is updated throughout with some of the original wood floors still withstanding the footsteps of time. The guest rooms are comfortably contemporary.

Clean, comfortable, nicely decorated B&B. The breakfast in the morning was freshly prepared and delicious! Very quiet and peaceful atmospher, but close to the beaches of South County. Jennifer was a gracious host and very accommodating. Would love to stay there again.

What a wonderful place!! We stayed for three nights and everything was perfect! Jenn is such a wonderful host. I was new to the area and she gave us great recommendations of what to do and where to eat. She is also super friendly and was very accommodating to all of our needs. The breakfast was amazing each morning. I hope to visit the area again, and would make sure to stay here each time and recommend it to anyone. This is a great spot for all occasions including romantic getaways, girl’s weekends, or family vacations. You need to search no longer for the perfect place in the area, you’ve found it!

Don't hesitate to book your stay here! It was such a treat to spend a few days with Jennifer at It's A Shore Thing. My husband and I wanted a relaxing place to spend a few days together at the beach and that's exactly what we got. The location is perfect with the Charlestown beach right down the road and endless choices for great local seafood. We were spoiled every morning by a gourmet breakfast and Jennifers hospitality. Our room was very clean and modern and were made to feel at home the moment we arrived. We are already discussing our next visit.

Fantastic experience! Cozy B&B close to the beach. Our room was clean, beds were comfy and anything we could think of wanting was already there. Jen was a great hostess, providing snacks and cool drinks after a long day on the beach. We will definitely be back. My biggest concern is that there will be no vacancy!

My mom & I stayed at "A Shore Thing" for 4 days and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more! Jennifer and her family were so accommodating and welcoming the entire time. They even cooked a delicious breakfast that was dairy free per my request. The home is very clean and comfortable as well. My experience was incredible and I can't wait to come back!

Jennifer was a fantastic, attentive and wonderful host. The place was warm and welcoming, as was she and her family. They all helped us with tips for local places to eat and visit, and followed up to be sure we enjoyed them. The food was great (this includes breakfast), we were there 3 mornings and had a different, wonderful selection of breakfast items each day. The place is clean charming, set in a perfect spot to enjoy the area. I highly recommend a Shore Thing.
