Five of my friends and I stayed at this house while competing in the US Winter Swimming Championships. We could see the pool from the sun room, which also had gorgeous views of the sunset over the frozen lake. Via the lake, the East Side Restaurant & Pub was a four minute walk.
The house was great for our stay. It slept six of us comfortably with the aid of two air mattresses, for which there was ample floor space. The kitchen met most of our needs (no coffee maker or toaster), and the shower worked very well. The highlight was the sun room - we were able to sit around the fire at night, though the flue did get stuck halfway closed so we smoked ourselves out one night.
I recommend touching base with the owners about the electricity before you take the keys - some of the circuit breakers are kept off while nobody is renting the house, and it can be a challenge to find the second box. We were able to get in touch with the owner who came and helped us out.
Overall it's a great home base if you're spending time in Newport!
