Guestbook comments from the owner
Barb , Derek and I want to thank you for offering such a peaceful and restful setting .

The convenience of the cottage to everything in Wickford is great.

It was so convenient to go to pastry shop a few blocks away and get coffee and paper early in AM, evening strolls around the town and especially the live music at the cove dock area.

This is first vacation. I ever took time to read 4 newspapers in the every AM and take a 2 `1/2 hour nap under the pine near the water almost every day.

Derek and I enjoyed the kayaking on the cove and pond behind while watching the waterfowl of all kinds as we paddled along. So peaceful

The cottage is outstanding inside and out. You have thought of everything that you might want or need.

Did not get in the car too much except to visit our favorite spots:: Aunt Carrie’s, Narragansett Beach, Jamestown Island –Beaver tail and of course “the Black Pearl” –Bowens Wharf in Newport.

When we lived in East Greenwich, RI, we knew and experienced Wickford as an excellent quaint town, but it has really improved over the years.

Tell sam hello and give him a kiss.

We will be back and hopefully soon.

Thanks again.

Honeymoon at Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Cove Cottage last month. We had the most relaxing experience. Cove Cottages is beautifully docorated, has ample space, a sprawling lawn, amazing view, and every amenity one could need.
Since our return we have told our friends and relatives that they too must visit Cove Cottage. The town of Wickford is quaint and friendly. Newport and Jamestown are just a 10minute drive away and the whole South Country of RI is at your fingertips. One week at Cove Cottage and your spirit will be completely renewed.

Delightful Cottage on the Cove

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of enjoying a week at Cove Cottage in the idyllic historic village of Wickford. The cottage is situated on a scenic cove very close to, but out of the activity of the village. The cottage, built in the early 1800s is in pristine condition, tastefully and comfortably refurbished with state of the art furnishings and amenities. The location is very central for seeing the sights of Rhode Island with Providence and Newport only a short commute away. Linda and David are ideal hosts, kind, available, but non obtrusive. Cove Cottage receives my highest recommendation!

What an amazing place. The house was perfect for me and was more than I expected. It is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and is stocked with everything you could possibly need. Linda and Dave are wonderful and Sam, their bloodhound, was so sweet... The town and it's people are very friendly and host many things to do, from shopping and eating to concerts on Tuesday and farmers market on Thursday and even a wonderful group of women doing their needlework by the docks each afternoon. I especially loved the fact that I didn't have to drive to go anywhere. Sitting in the big wicker rocking chair and watching for the swans was extremely relaxing and what more could you ask for than that?

Amazing little house in a quaint town

  • 5 of 5
I just got home from Cove Cottage and am ready to go back. Linda and Dave are great hosts and the house is immaculate. The town is so friendly and I loved that I could walk everywhere. Tavern by the Sea had very good food and friendly staff. I plan to go back and would have liked to stay longer this time. A gem of a house in a perfect setting. Thanks Linda for being so attentive to detail.

The Perfect Setting for Relaxing and Retreating

  • 5 of 5
I spent my sabbatical at the Cove Cottage and it was a beautiful setting to refresh and relax. The cottage is beautifully appointed and the yard is wonderfully manicured with flowers and is a perfect place to sit and read. I also liked the location so close to town and the beach. My husband and I enjoyed walking to town for dinner and early morning breakfasts. The cottage was immaculate and Linda was a wonderful hostess doing everything she could to make our stay a comfortable as possible. I would recommend this cottage to friends and family and will hopefully return next year.

Charming cottage.

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we parked outside Cove Cottage we knew we were going to be happy. Linda met us at the gate with a smile and greeting. She opened the solid barn door,( original?) and ushered us inside. Everything was as described in the advertisement, comfortable and clean. Linda took great care to ensure we had everything we required and to give ideas of activities in the town. The town of Wickford is a charming village with great seafood. Linda made suggestions as to where to buy it and we have to agree the lobster is the best we've tasted.
Linda was a great hostess, not intrusive but there when we needed anything. Her cottage is lovely, we would certainly stay there again.

Wickford Village, founded in 1663, is centrally located. Only 15-20 minutes from Newport, Jamestown, Narragansett or Providence..... Nestled along the waterfront of Wickford Harbor, historic Wickford Village, on the western shore of Narragansett Bay, contains perhaps the largest concentration of late 1700s and early 1800s homes in the United States. Wickford is a thriving fishing and commercial village immersed in history. Enjoy exploring Wickford's historic homes, churches, gardens and picturesque harbor during the summer, strolling during the Christmas holiday season, savoring the sights and smells of spring. Come watch the boats, enjoy lunch at an outdoor cafe, browse through the shops, walk the tree-lined streets. In July, Wickford is host to the annual Wickford Art Festival and in December, the village is aglow with holiday spirit for the Festival of Lights. You will want to return to Wickford Village again and again

Other Activities: Kayaking, Bocce ball, Badminton

Golf: If an early morning tee off is your idea for a perfect break, then you'll be thrilled by the 17 public golf courses in South County - from the friendly 9-hole challenge to the most advanced courses, there are options for both the casual player and the serious golfer.

Ski: Yawgoo Valley Ski Resort is located in Slocum, Rhode Island, with 12 ski trails, served by 4 lifts. 5.5 miles from Wickford.
