The owner was very helpful and friendly. We unfortunately had a lot of cool, wet weather during our stay so we spent more time inside than anticipated, but the cottage is very comfortable, with great views of the lake. The location is peaceful--no traffic noise, and only quiet boats (10hp limit) are allowed on the lake. It was fantastic to have the kayaks right there so we could get out on the water when the weather allowed. I would definitely recommend this rental and hope to return another time. The listing says a car is necessary, and it's true that nothing is within walking distance of the cottage, but we arrived by bicycle from the West Kingston Amtrak station, an easy 8-mile ride along the rail trail and mostly quiet roads. It's also a 20-minute bike ride to Narragansett Beach or into town to get food.
