This is a bright, comfortable cottage surrounded by unique and creative gardens. It is such an easy walk to the beach. It is one of four cottages known as Beach Garden Cottages. (See links at bottom of page to other cottages). It is very clean and was recently renovated. It has a first floor bedroom with a queen bed and a spacious loft bedroom with a queen bed and double futon. The loft is accessed by a spiral staircase.
There is a private deck surrounded by flowering shrubs and perennial beds and a large, shared, fenced-in yard - great for kids!! The cottage is located on a quiet street only a short walk to Newport's Easton's Beach (a.k.a First Beach). First Beach has public facilities, a carousel and playground. Restaurants are within walking distance and downtown Newport is only 1 1/2 miles away. It is a great area for walking, running, biking, roller blading, surfing and kayaking. All equipment available to rent nearby

We bought this property of 4 cottages and a two family house in 1997. It was very rundown. We lived on the property and did most of the renovations and landscaping ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. We now live in the next town but continue to be very 'hands-on'. We oversee the weekly turnovers to be sure the cottages are clean and well maintained. We are easily reached to solve any problems or answer questions for our guests.
Trisha grew up in the Newport area and Paul grew up near the coast in Madison, Connecticut. Shortly after getting married, we were thrilled to find a 'fixer-upper' so close to the ocean. We take great pride in having created a unique vacation spot for so many of our returning renters and look forward to meeting new renters every year.
Paul's gardens are what all our renters comment on and make our place special. When you walk through the gate, behind the hedge, the landscaping will charm you. Seashell paths, arbors, roses, hydrangeas, daisies, blueberry bushes and strawberries, covered decks, butterflies, birds and more create a serene and unforgettable place to relax and unwind.
Perfect place for a cousins'' getaway. The cottage is charming, clean and in a great location - it was perfect. I had some reservations about 5 women sharing 1 bathroom, but it was never an issue (we loved the shower's great water pressure). We didn't cook because we were too busy walking, walking and more walking (the mansions, the Cliff Walk & the wharf). So much to do and so little time. The owners were professional and kind - easy to work with. We are already talking about planning on going back to this charming garden cottage.
I had the pleasure of vacationing at this spot last month with my wife, two kids and father in-law. It is set back and is surrounded by flower gardens and very nice landscaping. It is close to Eastons Beach and local attractions. Paul and Trisha a very nice people. They checked in on our first day to assure we had everythng we needed. We had a little problem with the internet connection. When we notified them and they got right on it and it was working within a couple of hours. My only regret is that we did not book two weeks! We plan to come back next year!
This is a wonderful place and location. Paul and Trish take a very active role to ensure that their guests have a superb vacation. They really go out of their way to create a fantastic experience. I would recommend this place to anyone.
My family and I spent a week in mid July and had a great time! The spiral stairs were not much of an incovenience, even with our two young girls. We did find the step from the entry area to the living area a bit of a hassle as we had a newly crawling 10 month old who had to learn to negotiate that step as she was crawling around. It was within easy walking distance to the beach and had some restaurants and convenience stores within a short walk as well. The gardens were gorgeous and you felt quite secluded having coffee on the patio. It is someplace we would definitely visit again, though this time we would be sure to request the air conditioning!!
We stayed the weekend of June 11-13.
It is a very convenient location to Newport (Ocean Walk is walking distance). The landscaping is awesome, you feel very secluded. The cottage itself was warm and inviting.
The owners were most accommodating. All in all I would whole heartedly recommend.
My husband & I rented this cottage the last week of August 2008 with another couple. We had a wonderful week long vacation. The cottage is very clean, cute & cozy with beautiful landscaping. It is about 2 blocks from Easton Beach, about 1 mile from the Cliff Walk, & about 1.5 miles from downtown Newport, which makes it easy & convenient to access all the local attractions. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They quickly respond to emails. This is definitely a recommended stay.
The cottages are located on a quiet side street tucked back behind a hedge. It is an easy walk of about two blocks to the beach.There are no fees to walk on to the beach. There are restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. The downtown Newport waterfront is about 2 miles away where there is wonderful shopping, dining, and nightlife. There is so much to do - Mansion tours, Fort Adams, Brenton State Park, Cliff Walk, harbor tours, day trips to a variety of quaint sea-side villages. Our guests love enjoying all the hustle and bustle of things to do in the Newport area but then being able to come back and enjoy the serene garden surroundings of our cottages.
