East Rising is a delightful family-owned rustic cottage on Orr's Island. When you walk into the home it is very apparent that it has been loved and cared for generation after generation. Walking through the front door, there is a mudroom and laundry room and to your left there is a suite with a bedroom and a bathroom and to your right is the kitchen. The kitchen is practical, yet roomy for all of your cooking needs and next to it is a nice dining room with enough seating for all to gather round and enjoy a lobster bake with family and friends. The next room is the living room, which offers an abundance of seating with beautiful views of the ocean and a fireplace, adding comfort,as well as, rustic style. Upstairs there is a cozy bedroom with a twin bed and a full bathroom, and three other bedrooms. The two large bedrooms upstairs are spacious and have unbelievable views of the ocean. All of the rooms are comfortable and full of character. East Rising surroundings offers a wonderful yard and a large swing set for children to play, and a nice wrap-around porch for people to enjoy the view of the open ocean. There is also a path that leads to the ocean for a swim or for exploring the nearby coast. The cottage is just a short walk away from Lowell's Cove, which is a small local beach that natives have enjoyed for many years. It is a great location for kayaking, swimming, and soaking up the sun. With all of its character and charm, the opportunities for fun and fond memories are endless at East Rising. Elevator available inside the house for guests with mobility problems. Ask for details.

Left on 08/13/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | CT TravelerReviewed Aug 13, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
We rented this lovely old, well-appointed house for a vacation that included visits from grown children, so we needed the roominess it provided. Even with 7 adults, we all had space and privacy. It has lots of character and charm, and has been well taken care of. There are two good-sized bedrooms (queen beds), one small bedroom(twin beds that filled the room) and a room that didn't have a door(twin)on the second floor. There is also a large bedroom on the first floor at the back of the house (double bed). One full bath on each floor worked great. The kitchen was well-equipped, with lots of china, but older pots and pans. The appliances seemed new (gas stove, which I am not used to, was very easy to use). Great laundry area with washer/dryer. Although the house is set up with Internet, it was located in the back of the house and we had to walk back and forth to get wi-fi service for phones (most of us didn't have any cell phone service in the area, but there is a land line for local calls). The small, older TV is also located in the back bedroom, which wasn't very convenient, although we hardly used it. The living room, which faces the ocean, has large windows allowing full views of the islands, gulls and lobster fishermen tending their traps. The upholstered furniture in that front room was old but looks OK. There is a huge wrap-around porch where we spent lots of time - sunrise, breakfast, lunch and some dinners! A Weber grill/charcoal were provided. The outside lawn area is well tended. It is located above a very rocky shoreline with a narrow path down to the rocks along the coast for views, but not an area to swim. This is a lovely house, and aside from a few minor things that could be easily fixed (Internet location, TV, furniture), it provided a perfect, relaxing setting for our gathering. Food shopping, etc. is 20 min. away. We enjoyed the quaint shops/restaurants (with lobsters for sale) and daytrips to the beautiful nearby islands.
