'TOP OF THE HILL' CARRIAGE HOUSE ON KAY STREET:LAST MINUTE AVAILABLITY 8/30-9/6

Newport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, one and a half bath carriage house

Old Acre Carriage House is a recipient of the 2013 Doris Duke Preservation Award and is featured in the June 2014 issue of RI Monthly magazine.

Steps away from Bellevue Avenue and a short stroll down the hill to the harbor, historic Washington Square and the arts district, Old Acre Carriage House is conveniently located yet privately situated on the park-like grounds of a Newport estate. Recently renovated, the project was undertaken with an eye to preserving the inherent beauty of its Gothic style. The overall composition is a wonderful example of historical preservation as well as green principles of salvage and reuse.

Nearby are the Hilltop Inn, Viking Hotel, Bayberry Inn, La Farge Perry House and Marshall Slocum Inn.

This charming carriage house was completely renovated in early 2013. Centrally air conditioned with 1050 square feet of living space, the 1856 carriage house/stable has a first floor open living area with full kitchen, mudroom, closet and powder room. French doors lead out to a charming south facing patio/garden- with outside shower. The house is accessed off a small lane that runs parallel to Kay Street and offers parking for two cars. The second floor has 2 bedrooms (one with a king and one with twin beds) with laundry/linen and full bath with shower. The photos show the care with which this renovation project was carried out. The cheerfulness and good taste shown in the decor make this a most attractive and appealing rental property.

We fell in love with Newport and all it had to offer and bought our house in 1993. After a thorough renovation, we moved in with our family of 5 and made 'Old Acre' our home. In the summer of 2012, we launched into our next huge project: the complete redo of our 1856 stable/ carriage house. It's in the heart of Newport, yet quiet, peaceful and private.

Eve and Bill Woodhull purchased this cottage in 1993

We moved here from New York to live in this city by the sea for its year round vibrant lifestyle.

Instead of booking at the Newport inns and hotels that abut our property, stay at our private, newly renovated carriage house. It shares the property with a Victorian house built in 1855 by George Mason and Son. They are ideally situated in Newport.

TRULY MEMORABLE!

A perfect place to stay for a visit to Newport -- the carriage house is beautifully decorated, charming, peaceful, and immaculate -- my husband and I had great fun exploring Newport and all sites and restaurants were within easy walking distance. We already look forward to a return visit!

JUST TERRIFIC

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent the best week staying at Woody and Eve's beautiful cottage. We are quite familiar with Newport, having spent a good deal of time there over the years. The Old Acre Cottage was the perfect spot. The architecture and design were far better than we expected. The location was right in the middle of town, but tucked away, quiet and private. Although parking was at our door, we could and did walk everywhere. We would certainly recommend this our friends, and hope to return in the future.

FABULOUS GETAWAY IN NEWPORT!

  • 5 of 5
We are two couples just returning from a long Fall weekend at the Top of the Hill Carriage House. The house was perfect and the setting second to none. Eve has thought of all the extra touches that make it functional and beautiful. The house is in a fabulous location and we loved walking everywhere. Eve and Bill are great owners who were easy to work with and provided great communication. We hope to return!!

DUTCH

The previous comments completely describe this wonderful cottage. I found one added "luxury" in the upstairs bath. A magnifying mirror placed by the window and allowing for natural light while applying makeup was my extra "luxury". We were visiting our son and our grandchildren found the lawn a beautiful place to play as we spent time together. The special parking space for the cottage was so convenient when our son came in and out. This is a much better alternative than staying in a bed and breakfast or hotel in Newport. Over the past 20 years our son has been in Newport, I have done both.

We have already recommended the cottage and will do so again when we have an opportunity.

DELIGHTFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
You won't find a more delightful place to stay in Newport than Eve and Bill's tastefully renovated carriage house. Our family of three stayed for 5 days in April and had a relaxing visit. Even our young son was enchanted by the carriage house and beautiful yard, complete with bunnies hopping through the grass and cardinals flying overhead. The carriage house has gorgeous design (tall ceilings, wood floors, large windows and great light.) Eve has created an incredibly welcoming environment, through elegant decor and crisp, comfortable and immaculate linens, bedding, towels and window treatments. There were flowers on our dining table when we arrived!

We could walk everywhere we wanted to visit in Newport, which helped make up for our daily stop for luscious cookies at Empire Tea and Coffee just down the hill. The carriage house is very well provisioned and there is a cute private courtyard with seating and landscaping. Eve and Bill were wonderful, welcoming hosts and we wish them much success with this venture. I fell in love with the pictures of the carriage house on this site, but it is even more beautiful in person. I highly recommend that you treat yourself to a stay at this special place.

'TOP OF THE HILL' IS TOP OF THE LINE!

'TOP OF THE HILL' is Top of the Line!

My husband and I spent a great romantic weekend in the charming, well-done gut renovation of this 1856 carriage house on the grounds of a Newport Estate. We walked to everything and left the car parked----every amenity was top-notch--king-sized bed, marble bath, full kitchen, every comfort provided by friendly and helpful owners who know their town well and all the best places to visit and eat---what's worth it and what isn't. Lovely, light, open living area with cable TV and big windowed views was heaven to just hang out in. A great way to both visit a town and feel a part of it at the same time. Can't wait to return to "our" place.
