We bought and completely renovated this house, and then lived in in it for 8 years because we loved the location. We then bought the house next door, completely renovated it and moved in because we still love the location!
We love the location as we are close enough to town to walk to shops and restaurants. Close to the harbor to enjoy sunset walks with views over the water. The park opposite the house gives a very spacious feeling to living here. The neighbourhood is friendly and pretty quiet.

We are repeat renters and for good reason. The cottage is in a terrific location in Newport: 2 blocks from Kings Park which is adjacent to the harbor, and a 5 minute walk to lower Thames Street where there are shops and famous restaurants. The front door of the house also opens out onto a sweet neighborhood park which is used by dog walkers, pedestrians, soccer players, and other local characters.
Ed and Biddy are great to rent from without being intrusive. The house is spotless when we arrive and Biddy and Ed are always updating things in our absence which we appreciate. Plus, the house feels like a home instead of a "rental unit." It is well-stocked with kitchen equipment, cleaning supplies, linens, pillows, comfortable furniture, and most importantly, reading lamps. With all these thoughtful comforts, it is easy to feel like you are "living" in Newport instead of "visiting" Newport.
Newport has a multitude of attractions for visitors with very diverse interests. There are many historic buildings ranging from Mansions to small houses lovingly restored. Art museums and galleries, local Pottery and Glass Blowing to view. It offers opportunities for sailing and many other varied water sports such as surfing, kayaking and fishing. There are golf courses on the island, shopping, restaurants, walking tours, wildlife reserves, museums, ship building and restoration. Music festivals from Jazz to Classical during the summer. Newport is the home of the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Bellevue Ave, which runs tournaments in the summer. Whatever the weather there is always something to do here!
