The cottage is a wonderful vacation home with 2 bedrooms that would be comfortable for 2 adults & 1 or 2 smaller children or an additional couple. Fully applianced kitchen with cathedral ceilings and skylight, washer/dryer, 1 bath w/shower plus outside hot shower at spacious back deck, private back yard, front porch, Wi-Fi high speed internet , bedroom cabinets, wood floors. The house is furnished with 1 queen & 1 full size bed and all kitchen utensils. Several swimming areas and small boat launch very close by. Golf course is 5 minutes down the road. Quiet and private neighborhood, about 10 minute bicycle ride to town center, plenty of off street parking. Located at East Shore Rd. and Decatur Ave. This is a great place as a quieter alternative to a busier town but with very quick access to those types of areas. Jamestown's a great place for bicycle riding, boating, beaching / swimming, walking, fishing or doing nothing. Quality restaurants, coffee shops and parks create a genuine village feeling at the town center. An easy 10 minute ride to Newport over the bridge for a day in the city by the sea or take the passenger ferry (bring your bicycle) to Newport and direct ferry to the folk / jazz fesitavls. This isn't rustic, some may say it's quaint or cozy, but I call it a small, simply beautiful island cottage that can make your summer a truly enjoyable one to remember. Bring your bicycles, kayak, surfboards / windsurfers, golf clubs, books, fishing gear or yard games. We have the grill and deck furniture.
This is a non smoking property. Pets will be considered.

The cottage was renovated in 2002 / 2003 including mechanical systems all interior, windows, cabinetry and exterior areas. The cottage is featured in a book published by a local historian.
The cottage is set close to water front access areas and other family style activities. For those that want nightlife ...you can be in Newport in 7 minutes! Close to the town center and great restaurants. All the amentities of an apartment or condo but you have the privacy of your own house. A quiet neighbor hood with only a few houses nearby.
