ABOUT~

Built in 1910, this small cottage is tucked inside a secret garden. A private porch overlooks a yard full of wildflowers, roses, flowering trees and gardens. This poetic home has been used for its gracious light numerous times in product shoots. It has been featured in Rhode Island Magazine and was 'home' for some of the film crew during the filming of Moonrise Kingdom.

Two adults and a child can comfortably sleep in the cottage. The bunkhouse has a pair of twin beds and sleeps 2 adults. If you travel with your pet, there is a fenced yard for a dog, and plenty of sunny windows for a cat.

On a cool night, you will love using the cast iron wood stove with a glass door that you can see from bed or living room! The cottage has a queen size bed and a day bed off the kitchen. The separate bunkhouse has twin beds and a TV. There is room down at the wooded end of the yard to park an RV.

This magical little cottage offers complete privacy. I am available to share all that I love about Jamestown with you during your visit. Please let me know anytime you need to know where to get the best clam roll, how to get there, or what to do on a rainy day.

The cottage and bunkhouse are located in an quiet neighborhood between Shoreby Hill and the golf course. There are lots of beautiful old homes and mature trees here. At one end of the end of the street there is a public golf course overlooking a salt marsh and a bird sanctuary. Heading towards the village, there is a small beach that is perfect for a quick dip on a hot afternoon.

Town is a short walk away where there are plenty of places to keep you busy all day: restaurants, shops, antiques, art center, playground, library and a grocery store. You can catch the Jamestown Newport Ferry at the marina. It runs during the summer and is the prettiest way to get over to Rose Island, Fort Adams and bustling Newport.

Your pet is welcome! Please be aware that bunnies and birds have the run of the yard when you're not here. I have a fenced in area in the yard where your dog can run. Cats should be kept indoors.

I hope you enjoy the peace and tranquility of this quiet, family oriented neighborhood. Please consider the well-being of the neighbors during your visit.

No smoking in the cottage or bunkhouse

About Julie

I am an artist and gardener who grew up in Jamestown. Some of my best qualities for running my vacation rental were earned when I ran a beautiful, upscale inn called The Bard's Inn, in Ashland, OR.

Julie purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Julie chose Jamestown (Conanicut Island)

Jamestown has been my home since the mid-70's and still feel like a newcomer! This is the best place in the world to live, and I absolutely love my house. Every time I pull into the driveway I feel like I have arrived in paradise. Island life is simple and Jamestown is one of the most beautiful towns going. It is a very community oriented, 'Mayberry' type of hometown with farms, rocky coves, marshland, and a spectacular peninsula that hosts the lighthouse at Beavertail State Park.

What makes this cottage unique

Built in 1910, this small cottage is tucked inside a secret garden. The private porch overlooks a large, private yard full of wildflowers, roses, flowering trees and gardens.

What's better than having that kind of privacy, where you can walk to town, a little sandy beach and bird sanctuary, all within 10 minutes!

Comfortable, charming, a short walk to the water and good eats in Jamestown!

  • 4 of 5

I recently spent a long weekend here with my husband, kids, and dog. We all enjoyed the cottage. It was roomy enough for all of us to have our own space but small enough for us to spend time together, too. The expansive one-level layout worked well. The cottage is charming with its intentional antique character. It has the feel of an older era, but with modern amenities like flat screen tv, cable/Internet, and updated appliances in the kitchen. The decor is tasteful and a treat for art enthusiasts. Our kids had a lot of fun playing outdoors in the large yard. There is a fire pit, great for storytelling! The front porch was a nice place to sit and relax. Even our dog had a great time, convinced the bucket of sticks for the fireplace was actually a collection of his favorite chew toys. We're so glad we could bring our dog along on this family get-a-way! We enjoyed walks into town and short drives to some of our favorite locations in Narragansett and Newport. Jamestown was the perfect place for us to stay. We loved being in the sea-side town, able to walk to shops and dining, without the big crowds we found in Newport. There were plenty of things around town to keep us busy, and in our down time, the cottage was very relaxing. We even found a great playground near the cottage that our kids loved, just across the street from a bakery in town. We liked having a kitchen for cooking a few meals, but we found yummy options for breakfast/lunch/dinner all around town, for all budgets. We also found plenty of kid friendly meal options in town, too. This cottage worked with our two kids, ages 5&8. The kids slept on a couch and a build-in window seat. It worked out, but our privacy was limited. While it was nice for the whole family, I think this cottage would also be nice for a couple on a romantic getaway.

We loved this cottage-- it is full if quirky, curated vintage detail and panache. Perfect location and very large, tended garden. Flowers and Mint everywhere. Very engaged, attentive, and helpful owner.

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 22 month old son, and I stayed over Labor Day weekend. This house is in a perfect location! It is so close to downtown yet offers plenty of privacy. We all had a fun filled weekend at the house and at area attractions. We will definitely stay here again!

We had the most lovely time staying in Julie's cottage prior to a wedding we were attending. We are an extended family of 6 who were in desperate need to stay in a cottage in Jamestown for a wedding we were attending. Julie graciously allowed us to stay at her cottage with a bunk house and we were able to bring our camper for 2 adult children to stay in.

The cottage is older, filled with the charm of yesteryear with the modern comforts of today. We spent mostly our sleeping time there because we were so busy with wedding festivities, but when we were there, we spent time reading and chatting on the most wonderful porch. She even allowed us to bring our dog. There is a fenced in area which was greatly appreciated! We loved barbecuing on the charcoal grill. I had forgotten how much I missed the taste of food cooked on a charcoal grill.

Julie could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Whenever I called or had a question...which was often the first couple of days... Julie was right there for us!

I could imagine spending long winter evenings in front of the wood stove reading, chatting or playing board games! I don't think I mentioned it, but it is a very romantic setting!

The proximity to the center of town is terrific. It is a ten minute, lovely walk with an abundance of restaurants to eat at or have a favorite beverage or two. The sangria at Fish was delicious and the fish and chips (not greasy at all) at Chopmist Charlie's was among the best I have ever had.

I am filled with the warmest of memories of our stay at Julie's cottage and the charming seaside village. I am sure we will return.

Picture Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cottage while planning our trip to a family wedding based on the great reviews and lovely pictures (which don’t do it justice!). The cottage was exactly what we had been hoping for ... and much more. Upon walking into the cottage we were greeted with bright and thoughtful décor; it was so charming and instantly relaxing. Everything was clean and updated including the linens which were fresh and cozy. Three features (besides the home itself) were just extra bonuses. The gorgeous landscaping and gardens, the beautiful outside seating area (great at night with the white Christmas lights on), and the bunk house with two twin beds (this came in handy as one of our family members stayed with us after the wedding we attended was over).

We also loved the location -- just a few minutes’ walk to the ocean and town center. The wedding was at Ft. Getty, a 5 minute drive, and our family lived in Newport which was only about a 10 -15 minute drive.

Julie, the owner, was wonderful to work with. She was very helpful leading up to the trip, and responsive upon our arrival. We moved straight in, and never needed to rely on her assistance, as everything was available.

We would strongly recommend staying here to all of our friends and family … or for any couple or small family looking to enjoy Jamestown and all its surroundings.

Sweet little cottage, sweet little visit

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week a few days ago and had a nice time. The cottage is charming and deliberately, (I feel) filled with sweet quirky items/ cool art, that made this little place quite enchanting! It is a little rustic, but if that is what you are into, you will love it! Claw foot tub, tiny little stove, but really relaxing and so nice to get away from standard style rentals/hotels etc. The porch is so nice and tranquil and I tore through several books out there.

There is also a nice selection of books to choose from if you forget to bring one from home. It is just a short walk from the town center and we enjoyed morning walks all over Jamestown. It was nice to be able to cook breakfast/lunch and go out on some day trips.

Also, I was intrigued by the vast collection of cookbooks! I was on vacation, though, so didn't feel like working too hard!

I was here with my husband and 13 yr. old son and there was plenty of room for everyone, in fact, one more person would have been fine to stay in the cute little guest house in the backyard. All in all, it was a really nice stay. Definately a great place to sit, chill, read a good book, drink a little vino and get away from it all :)
