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.

About Eve and Bill Woodhull
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.

Why Eve and Bill Woodhull chose Newport
We moved here from New York to live in this city by the sea for its year round vibrant lifestyle.
What makes this cottage unique
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.
