'TOP OF THE HILL' CARRIAGE HOUSE ON KAY STREET

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.

Eve and Bill Woodhull purchased this cottage in 1993

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.

Fantastic...Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son, and I just returned from a week long stay at the Old Acre Carriage House, and we loved it! We have rented a place in Newport every summer for many years, and this was by far our best experience yet. The cottage is beautiful. Very tastefully decorated, spacious, and spotlessly clean when we arrived. The owners, Eve and Woody, were great to deal with...very professional, responsive, and helpful. They have thought of every little thing you might need to feel right at home here. The location of the cottage is fantastic...we were able to walk to so many of the wonderful Newport attractions....shops, restaurants, harbor tours, mansions, etc. This cottage is the best of all possible worlds....very peaceful and private yet close to everything. I loved the beautiful patio...very private with gardens, a teak table and chairs, and a grill....the perfect place to sit at the end of a fun day and enjoy the great weather we had! We liked it so much we have already booked our stay for next summer!!!

Wonderful week in Newport at the Carriage House!

  • 5 of 5
The Old Carriage House is the perfect location for a stay in Newport. It is walking distance to the harbor - 15 minutes easy walk. The house is in very good condition, beds are comfy, kitchen area is great with modern appliances, living room area is also very comfortable. It is a really adorable house. There is a very good cheese shop and a wine merchant right around the corner on Bellevue - very important for us. Looking forward to staying here again.

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!!

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.
