Overview

Jamestown (Conanicut Island) Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, sleeps 4

This classic knotty pine paneled cottage on Beavertail in Narragansett Bay is a classic beach vacation home. The water is approximately 250 feet from the front door, down a set of private stairs with deeded right of way.

There are flat rocks for sunbathing or fishing, good snorkeling and a very nice cove, Hull Cove, with a sandy beach just five minutes walking to the left along the water's edge. The town beach is approximately 10 minutes by car. The town center of Jamestown is a few minutes further, with cafes, shops and a marina. By car, you can cross the bridge to Newport in approximately 15 minutes. Next door property is also available for family reunions.

House features oak and cherry floors and a traditional beach cottage character.

historical information: This neighborhood was originally developed for and by fishing enthusiasts prior to the 1950's. Many of the houses subsequently incorporated the original fishing houses into their more modern renovation. This house was renovated in the 1950's by the then retiring owner. He and his wife built a large kitchen, a bath and two bedrooms onto the original fishing structure, and added central heating, making it one of the first year-round houses in the neighborhood.

One can identify the original structure by the flooring: cherry wood was used to floor the original, with pine paneling on the walls. The remainder of the house was floored with oak, but again using pine paneling on the walls. While there has been some thoughtful updating, the feeling of the cottage is very true to its time, and so has a very strong feeling of nostalgia!

If you enjoy excitement and action, but would like a quiet retreat at the end of the day, or prefer being away from the excitement all day long, this is the place for you. This location is exceptional for its proximity to the water and its convenient access to culture and tourist attractions in downtown Jamestown, and Newport, while keeping the hubbub at arm's length. Enjoy gorgeous views and private access to the ocean with a location that pays homage to a simpler time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Diane & Chris,

We had a wonderful time on Conanicut Island! We love your charming cottage and really appreciate the impeccable maintenance...very clean and cozy. We swam, sat on the rocks, ate at Trattoria Sympatico, watched the sunset at the park...all awesome! I loved the picture window-every few minutes I looked and it framed a new, stunning scene!

Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my husband and I to vacation near the water. We cooked at home and there were plenty of utensils, pots and pans etc. to do the job. There was even a new little grill there upon our arrival. We spent the week biking, running, exploring Newport and visiting friends in Jamestown. If you are looking for a small, well-appointed house, this is it. The Lighthouse and Bird-watching are close by, and the beach is two miles down the hill. If you are looking for luxury and largess, this is not for you. We would stay again. Thanks!

Perfect "Tree House"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two year old to this cottage the week of July 4. The house is perfect for families with children; it is well decorated but also well childproofed. Our son immediately dubbed the cottage the “tree house.” He had so much fun that it took him three days to notice there wasn't a TV in the house. Diane provided many things we needed to enjoy ourselves: towels, bed linens, pots, and dishes. We spent our mornings walking along Hull Cove. My husband and I sat on the front porch area and read while our son napped. We visited Mackerel Cove Beach a few evenings. We went into town a few times, enjoying the library, playground, and downtown shops. My son loved visiting Beavertail Lighthouse so much, we went three times during the week. We had such a wonderful visit that we decided to make it a yearly family tradition.

Great relaxing & biking week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Jamestown. Rented bikes for the entire time from NBX in Narrangansett (who delivered them to our door) and covered ALL of Conanicut Island, visiting Beavertail Light multiple times. Lovely and dramatic! Farm stand for fresh veggies and grassfed meats. Just one day went off the island, drove to dinner on Newport, where the parking was not nearly as difficult as we had been warned. Would have been nice to bike around there too. There's a funky bakery cafe open just on the weekend (owners might be able to direct you to it) where we enjoyed great breakfast on our last day. We found out it offers brick oven pizza only on Sunday and we missed it -- will aim to go there next time. FYI, the "ocean view" isn't really what I expected, but the "ocean access" is the real thing -- you can go boulder hopping along the rugged coast, spend many happy times. Really a relaxing, comfortable, well-outfitted place, on a great island.

Adorable, Comfortable Spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area- uncomfortable home

  • 2 of 5

Conanicut Island is truly a special place and Beaver Tail is the nicest area on the island. Jamestown was also just a great vacation town. The location of the house is great- a very short walk to the ocean. The house needs help. We had to go and buy a temperpedic mattress after the first sleepless night- the mattress was so musty and old- it was painful. The bathroom- well you need to be very tiny- about the size of a 6 year old to fit in it. There is not a comfortable place to sit in the house. The kitchen is a good size but needs some serious TLC. Come to the area just not this house.

Unplug and Relax

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting this house for 10 years because I just love the charm of the cottage, the views, and the proximity not only to the immediate water at Hull Cove, but also to Jamestown Center (5 minutes) Newport and Narragansett (both about 15 minutes). My son has grown up coming here – and the sizable yard and dead-end street is perfect for children.

The cottage is quaint and has any amenities you need to support a vacation that is about unplugging (no TV, internet, cable, etc.) and relaxing (has outdoor bistro table, a charcoal grill).
