My family and I were so pleased with this lovely New England cottage. It was larger than we had expected. The kitchen was well stocked and a joy to cook in. The wonderful water views from the dining area, kitchen and deck were a real treat. The house was very clean and the washer and dryer was a real bonus. The neighborhood is quiet and tranquil.
The island is great for walking or biking. The cottage is on a more secluded part of the island which is less than a mile from Beavertail State Park where there are amazing water views, walking trails and a lighthouse that you can tour.
The town center is very charming with several restaurants and shops. Newport is a ten minute trip over the Newport Bridge which is beautiful at night with all the lights. Other nearby highlights are South County with ocean beaches, reastaurants and much more.
One highlight was the art show in town. I was able to purchase a painting of Beavertail Lighthouse by a local artist. It is a daily reminder of what a gorgeous place this island is.
The owners are very responsive and readily available if needed. I would recommend this rental to anyone interested in a great New England vacation. We plan on returning every summer.
