This is an adorable, vintage, beach cottage surrounded by flowering gardens. It is clean and comfortable with two small bedrooms. It is one of 4 cottages known as the Beach Garden Cottages. (See links at very bottom of page to view other cottages.) There is a gas fireplace, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, full bathroom and kitchen. You will be charmed by this place, it is as sweet as the photos look. The cottage has a private deck surrounded by flowering perennial beds and a large, shared, fenced-in yard - great for kids. It is on a quiet side street and only a short walk to Newport's Eastons Beach (a.k.a. First Beach). First Beach has public facilities, a carousel, playground, skateboard park and twice weekly evening entertainment. Restaurants are within walking distance and downtown Newport is only 1.5 miles away. References from previous guests available.
We bought this property of 4 cottages and a two family house in 1997. It was very rundown. We lived on the property and did most of the renovations and landscaping ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. We now live in the next town but continue to be very 'hands-on'. We oversee the weekly turnovers to be sure the cottages are clean and well maintained. We are easily reached to solve any problems or answer questions for our guests.
Trisha grew up in the Newport area and Paul grew up near the coast in Madison, Connecticut. Shortly after getting married, we were thrilled to find a 'fixer-upper' so close to the ocean. We take great pride in having created a unique vacation spot for so many of our returning renters and look forward to meeting new renters every year.
Paul's gardens are what all our renters comment on and make our place special. When you walk through the gate, behind the hedge, the landscaping will charm you. Seashell paths, arbors, roses, hydrangeas, daisies, blueberry bushes and strawberries, covered decks, butterflies, birds and more create a serene and unforgettable place to relax and unwind.
The cottages are located on a quiet side street tucked back behind a hedge. It is an easy walk to the beach of about two blocks. There are no fees to walk on to the beach. There are restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. The downtown Newport waterfront is about 2 miles away where there is wonderful shopping, dining and nightlife. There is so much to do - Mansion tours, Fort Adams, Brenton State Park, Cliff Walk, harbor tours, day trips to a variety of quaint sea-side villages. Our guests love enjoying all the hustle and bustle of things to do in the Newport area but then being able to come back and enjoy the serene garden surroundings of our cottages.
