This house is a perfect get away for families who are looking to stay near the beach and all the fun Newport has to offer. We had 6 adults and 4 children on our trip, and the house never seemed crowded. 3 of the bedrooms are large and have plenty of space for pack n plays for the little ones. The kitchen is well equipped for those who choose to stay in for dinner. The Keurig was a big hit for us coffee drinkers who don't like to make large pots of coffee, but a traditional coffee maker is also available for those who do. The deck with 2 dining tables and large awnings is a comfortable place to dine or relax. Having off street parking for up to 3 vehicles is a bonus, considering you can't park on the narrow streets. The beach chairs and sand toys that are available for guests made packing the car a lot easier prior to our trip. Finally, the house was very clean and seems to be newly updated. The bathrooms are good sized and plenty of towels are available. The one drawback of Middletown is the town ordinance that prohibits outside noise after 10pm. So sitting on the deck with friends to chat and have a beverage after the kids go to bed is difficult. This in no way reflects upon the owners of Briarwood Beach House, however. They have a great place that we all enjoyed!
