Great Girlfriend Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

When we drove up to this beautiful home after seeing pictures online, we were surprised to see that the house was even more beautiful in person. The exterior porch has a cozy seating area, and inside there are unique, beautiful, artistic touches that help add to the warm, homey feeling.

We are a group of women that chose this place as a home base for our Newport getaway. It was perfect! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and dining area, as well as sitting areas were great for all of us to sit around together. The place was spotless, and had all the amenities anyone could ever want. The beautiful screened in porch upstairs was a wonderful place to sit and relax after a long day of sightseeing. We enjoyed The Elms upstairs audio tour as well as the Servant Tour. The Mooring was our favorite restaurant for our four day/three night getaway.

We would highly reccommend this house to anyone, especially a group, because it had everything and more!

We hope to return one day soon!

A Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was fabulous! We loved this historical home with many creative and contemporary updates. The house was very relaxing and beautiful. We had plenty of space inside and outside with the large front porch and amazing back yard including a small coy pond and cozy seating area with solar night lighting.

We had everything we needed including a washer/dryer, use of beach chairs and gourmet kitchen! The home was in a great location where we could walk to down town (15 minutes by foot) and to the beach (10 minutes by foot). The owner was great and we look forward to going back!

The house was perfect in every way! Very close the beaches, 5 minutes to downtown Newport. Great for cookouts and with a huge lawn and gorgeous patio surrounded by gardens. Great outdoor shower too!

The owners are great to do business with and went out of their way to ensure things were perfect. I highly recommend this property!

About carolyn schmitz

As a child my favorite pastime was decorating my doll house. I created the rugs, curtains, bedding for the miniature rooms, while collecting the furniture at every birthday and holiday.

As a result, I spent 20 years as a decorative painter and color consultant, painting murals and faux finishes throughout New England. I participated in six Designer Show houses and have had work published in numerous national magazines. I have many passions in life, but creating artistic and interesting interiors is definitely one of my strongest.

carolyn schmitz purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

This house feels like a real home. Its colorful, interesting, has a great flow. Plenty of room- high ceilings and elegant moldings, parquet floors, two staircases, truly a victorian gem without feeling like grandma's house. Kids and adults love staying here. Three floors to spread out- the third being an open converted maids quarters! We have had tenants from Norway to Australia- the history of visitors is as interesting and rich as the architecture itself. Come stay and see what I mean!
