We spent a long weekend here in March. The weather was in the 40's and low 50's allowing us to enjoy walks on the stone and sand beach, This is a bay beach, so no waves and it is more stone than sand, but quite a view and very peaceful. If you like bird watching, this was a great location for watching winter ducks, so bring your binoculars. In a warmer season, this would be a great location for kayaking. The water and bridge views from inside the house are wonderful. The way my bed was situated, I could watch the lights of the bridge and the stars out my window at night. I hated to go to sleep. Mornings we spent lounging in the two large sunrooms enjoying the views and the coziness of the house. The house is 20 minutes from Newport and some might feel like it is removed a bit from the town. To us, this was a plus as the drive was easy and it afforded us the opportunity to explore the island on the way in or out of town. It's a great area to just drive down streets to see where they lead. Great views and beaches are throughout Middletown and Portsmouth. We were also only a couple minutes from Bristol and Tiverton over two separate Bridges. We enjoyed exploring both since we were so close. Both were charming. The Boathouse was a nice restaurant/bar in Tiverton with scenic views and good food, just a little pricey, but worth it. From the window there, you looked across the water to the peninsula the house is on. Four corners in Tiverton was a quaint little area with lots of art galleries and a great place for homemade ice cream called, Grays. Bristol has a great farmers Market Saturday morning at MT Hope Farm. You can get fresh eggs in assorted colors, really good fresh baked bread, jam, and seasonal veggies, etc. Although in March it was mostly root vegetables and it was inside a beautiful historic barn with live music. Also check out the Beehive Restaurant in Bristol a very quaint downtown on the water. All in all, the area is beautiful and fun to explore and this house feels like your home away from home. I am so glad we chose to stay here over a hotel in Newport. Plenty of room to spread out and all the comforts of home, and than some.

Lovely Water Views!

I am very particular about renting a clean house especially like to have clean bathrooms, this house was very clean and tidy upon our arrival which immediately made us feel comfortable. I was pleased with how quickly Helen (the owner) responded to my inquiries plus once at the house we were greeted with a nice bottle of sparkling wine to welcome us and we were given information on how to contact the property manager if needed so always felt like we were able to reach someone if a problem arose. Great relaxing location to begin the day with wonderful water views and to end the day with beautiful sunsets and the Mount Hope Bridge lit up at night. Our favorite part was waking in the morning lying in bed looking at the water with Boats and Birds going by, such a lovely way to start each day. As quiet and relaxing as it is where the house is located you are in close proximity to Newport and the Mansions, Providence, Supermarkets such as Stop and Shop, Clements Marketplace and good restaurants such as Evelyn's in Tiverton, The Moorings and O'Brien's Pub in Newport. When not out sightseeing we spent time walking on the beach in the back of the house collecting seashells. Overall we had a very enjoyable relaxing week at the house, would definitely stay here again to enjoy the lovely water views and quiet location when we next visit R.I.
