CHARMING COTTAGE IN HISTORIC POINT SECTION OF NEWPORT

Newport House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4

Newport is a walkable town, and this neighborhood is quite conducive to walking. The neighborhood is very safe, and the streets are beautiful to walk along. Many of the houses have wonderful gardens and landscaping, and the colonial houses are nearly all in freshly restored form, true to their original classic styles.

This is the closest neighborhood to the Navy base, it's a 10 min walk or quick bike ride. There is absolutely no traffic to the base.

There are two parks in the neighborhood and two piers that are perfect for picnics.

There is a quaint restaurant and pub right in the neighborhood, only an 8 minute walk from the house. The downtown area start just past that, about 2 minutes walk farther. If you prefer to drive, everything in town is within 5 minutes. On the summer weekends you will need to know the back ways to make that work, which I will share with you. Bicycling is also a great quick way to get around and saves you from having to find a parking space downto

Newport in the summer: Newport is an amazing summer destination. It is nearly always cool here, typically 10-15 degrees cooler than on the mainland. It is really only crowded on the weekends. From Sunday afternoon until Thursday afternoon there is usually no trouble getting through town, finding parking, or getting into restaurants without a wait.

There is so much to do here it is hard to cover it all. Grass tennis courts at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the best sailing on the east, Golf, shopping, beaches, nature conservatories, colonial architecture - and the food is amazing. There are over 200 restaurants and pubs in Newport, and I can jump-start you on the best ones to try out. Festivals, concerts, comedy series run all year long, and in the winter there is an outdoor skating rink right in the center of town.

Off Season: Newport is quieter in the off season, but it is not dead. Most of the restaurants are open year-round, and there are still festivals from time to time in the winter. The bars and clubs still get a decent crowd even when it's cold. We usually don't get a lot of snow because the storms typically follow the mainland. However, it is *windy* here in the winter, and that means strong wind-chills. You do want to bring good gloves, hats & jackets.

Note to military and Navy base business people - This is the ideal neighborhood for working at the base. It is the closest nice/upscale neighborhood to the base, and you do not have any traffic to get through to get to the base, it is residential all the way. There isn't even a traffic light except for the one in front of the base itself.

My house is in The Point section of Newport. This is the most historic and best maintained neighborhood in town. One in five houses are from the 1700's, and more than half are over 100 years old. The neighborhood runs along Narragansett bay from the bridge to the edge of downtown. My house is on a quiet dead-end street with friendly neighbors who own their homes and are proud to show off their neighborhood to newcomers. It is only three blocks to a beautiful park on the water and public pier. It is about a 10 minute walk to downtown. There is a public dinghy dock right in the neighborhood where you can take a launch out to a mooring.

It also doubles as a second TV in case you can't agree on which game to watch. Also, if you want to have a guest during your stay, it is perfect for that. When the futon is opened up, it can easily sleep a couple for one or two nights.

Notes:
The washing machine and dryer are actually in the basement, not in the kitchen - the site does not provide the option to show laundry facilities separately from the kitchen. There is a driveway that can fit one car. There is one guest parking pass that enables you to park on the street within one block of the house, overnight. During the day, no permit is required. There is a maximum of two cars overnight - if you have a need for more, please contact me and I will help you make arrangements for a place to park a third car. My sailboat is a Laser 2 - it is similar to a Laser, except slightly bigger, and with jib and spinnaker. It is not on-site, it is across town at a dinghy park. You would have to be an experienced dinghy sailor to be able to use this boat - it is fairly fast, and capsizes easily. If you are looking for a leisurely sailing option on a bigger boat where you can bring a picnic, or to have somebody take you sailing , etc, I can arrange something for you - just ask.
