This home has been in the family for many years. They have been remodeled and upgrades. Holdredge's have been a part of Watch Hill since the early 40's, once owning two garages and a parking lot. Now we just own the house and 2 cottages.

Wonderful Watch Hill location

  • 5 of 5
This Watch Hill property was accurately described in terms of location, layout and amenities. We stayed in the house next to the 2 cottages. With 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room, washer/dryer, decks with views of the marina,it certainly met our needs! It was within close walking distance to three beaches-Carousel (with beach/bath house priviledges in season) Napatree, and East Beach. It is immaculate and well-maintained. Amazing customer service was provided despite a very serious health issue and hospitalization of one of the owners shortly after we arrived. We absolutely would recommend this property to anyone! Despite very uncooperative weather (the second week of June) and no access during that week to Carousel Beach, we had a lovely time. We took advantage of our proximity to Watch Hill village -a short walk away. We had a chance to browse through different boutiques and shops as well as eat at a few spots there-restaurants/cafes (breakfast/ lunch/dinner options). We also enjoyed walking and jogging around the area. There are a few golf courses near-by, appreciated by my husband. We ventured to Foxwoods, which was quite an experience ,on one of the rainy days! We also traveled on another non-beach day to Mystic CT- eating at Mystic Pizza and going to the Maritime Museum area. Fun! Hope this review will help those interested in staying in Watch Hill- a gem by the sea.

Dream Spot

  • 5 of 5
I have been coming to Watch Hill since I was a child. My family of four has been coming for the past three years. This was by far the best week I have ever spent there.
The location was perfect, with a view of the marina. We could see the carousel from the back deck, the carousel beach was a three minute walk. A locker is provided for beach chairs and toys so after the first day, all we had to bring was towels and snacks. My small kids enjoyed the carousel beach but for the more adventurous, East Beach has some great waves just two minutes further by foot.
The house itself was charming, extremely clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for me and my two daughters. We had guests multiple nights. A cookout on the back deck while the sun set made for some great evenings. The food within walking distance is perfect, ranging from casual (St. Clair's Annex) to formal dining (The Ocean House), and everything in between.
The owners were delightful, readily available to solve problems or answer questions - though we had zero issues. We have already booked for next year and can't wait to return.

The Best Ever Watch Hill Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year staying at the main house and, because our family included four generations this year, we also rented one of the cottages on the property. We had a fantastic week of glorious beaches, beautiful sunsets as well as nightly carousel rides (for the little ones) and ice cream cones.
The main house and cottage were immaculate, with gleaming hardwood floors, lovely (and functional) furniture and every amenity you could want. The grounds were well cared for and spacious with the quaint but bustling harbor, town and beaches just a few minutes walk from our door. We loved the proximity of it all!!
Many thanks to Jane and Charlie Holdredge for providing the perfect vacation property for our family. We all look forward to returning.

Watch Hill Wedding Week!

  • 5 of 5
Our son got married on June 8th and we rented the house for a week along with both cottages for a host of family members and clergy. It was an ideal situation to have the "compound" as we were home base for everyone arriving. The house was great, clean, well appointed, roomy, great workable kitchen and three bedrooms. We hosted about 35 people the first night that people were arriving and grilled sausages and burgers and the kids could run around outside and everyone could go back and forth to town and watch the sunset. This is an ideal location for people without a car or who just really like to be close to everything and especially the beach.... no parking issues! We experienced the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea which only added to our excitement at the Yacht Club the night of the rehearsal dinner. Charlie came and checked on us the next day as there was "ponding" everywhere in town. Jane has been great to work with for me the past year, as in addition to planning a wedding long distance, we had last minute changes with family members due to illnesses and surgeries. We will be back for sure and would highly recommend the entire property to anyone!

OMG in Watch Hill RI

  • 5 of 5
Last summer we had the greatest experience with our rental in Watch Hill, RI. We stayed at the "house" owned by Jane & Charlie and were delighted with the comfort and ambiance. The property was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated with all the amenities of home, the view was spectacular and it was sooooo close to the beach. Access to the private beach was included in our rental. The owners were helpful in advising us on parking, restaurants and shopping. We will definitely be back there again soon.

Watch Hill Delight

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful vacation home. All the amenities of being home with the sun and sand thrown in. A gem in Watch Hill and a bargain. This was our second rental at this property. Our first stay was at one of the cottages on the property, remodeled, tastefully decorated and furnished beautifully. This time we opted for the larger property which was beautifully furnished and decorated, extra cean and very close to the private beach and the two public beaches. They even had lawn chairs, etc. for us to use on the beaches. I have recommended this vacation home to several of my friends, but you know my family and I will be returning again and again. Jane & Charlie, the owners are fabulous and they really are dedicated to our comfort and pleasure. I would recommend this property and the cottages to anyone wanting a RI beach vacation. FANTASTIC!!
