PRIVATE WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON NARRAGANSETT BAY

Prudence Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath (another shower outside), foldout couch in LR, sleeps 4

This home is a waterfront gem on Narragansett Bay, located on the neck of Prudence Island, overlooking Bristol Harbor to the east and Potters Cove to the west. We have our own stairway leading to a private beach below which offers a 300 lb. mooring and pulley line for smaller boats. On the south side of the neck (down our lane and across the street) is a lovely, quiet sandy beach perfect for morning walks or runs, skinny dipping and quahogging. Return from the beach to a relaxing outdoor shower. Our large backyard is surrounded by a 6 foot cedar fence leaving 100 feet of uniquely private uninterrupted, panoramic views of the bay. These bay views can be enjoyed off of the large waterside deck, on the sleepy hammock or in front of the firepit.

House Layout: Hardwood floors throughout, our home is a quaint, one-bedroom cottage with a queen-size bed and pull out couch which sleeps two. The kitchen is galley with granite countertops. The bathroom has a stackable washer and dryer and custom tiled shower.

The Basics: A ferry is required to get to and from Prudence. There are no shops or restuarants on the island. There is one general store and a few local farmstands. The house is two miles from the ferry homestead in a very private neighborhood. Prudence is perfect for sailing, boating, beach combing, walking and biking. Since many of the roads are unpaved it is suggested to bring your mountain bike. With a large backyard and sprawling views of the bay, our property is an ideal venue for small, private wedding ceremonies (2 so far!).

Bristol: The ferry leaves from downtown Bristol, Rhode Island. Bristol is an historic harborside town speckled with quaint shops, restaurants, bars and ice cream stands. Bristol offers a convenient excursion for our guests as it is not necessary to bring your car. You need only leave your vehicle at the ferry homestead and walk right onto the ferry.

Thank you to Kristin and Jim for renting their quaint cottage to us. It especially meant so much to us that we were able to travel with our four-legged companion. We all had a wonderful time exploring the island again, and the cottage was the perfect spot in which to comfortably relax after long days of hiking. Its location (on the neck) is secluded and private. The pictures can't capture what a breathtaking and expansive view there is from the back yard. We didn't bring a car to the island, and we were able to walk to the cottage from the Homestead ferry in about 45 minutes (with full backpacks). For avid hikers, it is a perfectly do-able walk. Do follow Kristin and Jim's helpful recommendations. We were glad that we brought a lot of drinking water with us. The outdoor shower was a delight -- even in the cold air! Thanks again!

What an amazing little island home! I didn't know what to expect on our ferry ride over, we had never been to this island before. As soon as we drove off we knew we were in for a nice treat! It's a beautiful ride to the house on quiet roads and the moment you open the fence to the property all your stress instantly diminishes! what an incredible view this cottage has, you can see the Newport bridge all lit up at night from the fire pit and just before are breathtaking sunsets. The fences all around make it feel like you're the only ones on the island and it's so peaceful.
The owners do a great job stocking the house with all the essentials and it's such a cozy feeling that makes you feel at home. The view in the morning from your bedroom is something you need to experience for yourself! I'd recommend this rental to anyone looking for an escape from reality! All around amazing experience, we'll definitely be back!

I never write reviews and almost didn't want to for this because when you find a special place....you want to keep it to yourself and not share! :) We have always vacationed at the Cape and love it there... until this trip! So....having never been to Prudence Island... we planned well ahead of time on what to pack for a week (prepared meals ahead of time, food, wine, water, kayaks, bikes, beach chairs, books, etc.) at the cottage for us and our two dogs. When we drove off the ferry and towards the cottage, we were blown away! The road is a dirt road and then there was the cottage...AWESOME!! It was everything as described and MORE. We absolutely loved the fenced in yard both for privacy and our dogs to roam around freely. The views from the back yard were priceless...sunrises and a full moon! We had perfect weather for our stay and even if it had rained everyday it would have been perfect for us. It is definitely a place to shut off and disconnect from the world, people, traffic, internet, etc. and just enjoy time with the one's you are with. The cottage is small but comfortable, clean and updated. Our week on Prudence Island was PERFECT and it was so hard to leave (I actually cried). We will definitely return next summer!

This is located on the best part of the island. At Nearby Sandy Beach I caught striped bass, dug Quahaugs, and watched my grandson swim. The fire pit was fantastic to sit by at night. My grandson and I are coming back for sure. This place is highly recommended.

We loved every minute of our stay! The island is beyond anything you could ever imagine within the first hour I could feel the stress just leaving my body! . The house was amazing!!! When we first arrived we had a little trouble locating the house of course I forgot the directions Kristin and Jim sent us. But the second we opened the gate we knew we were there!! The pictures just don't even do it justice. The view is breathtaking, Probably the best spot on the island. The house is nestled in a tiny cluster of houses, all the neighbors are wonderful, but when inside Jim and Kristin's yard you feel like your on your own private island!! The Rocky beach is just down a set of stairs, and their is a Sandy beach just down the road as well as a pier to go fishing all within walking distance. The house is Clean, and smelled wonderful, The kitchen is fully equipped matter of fact the whole house was. We are all planning our trip back!! My kids keep asking me how many more days till we go back I fear it will be a long year :) Thank you Kristin and Jim for making it the most amazing family vacation we have ever been on!
