About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-9)

Beautifully restored 1850's beach house one block from Newport's dramatic Cliff Walk. Feel as if you've stepped into a 19th century beach house with its 10 foot ceilings, but with modern amenities. As you enter the house, left of the foyer on the first floor with its bathing suit display from the early 1900's, is the living room with a 50' large screen TV and home theater surround sound, L-shaped sofa, wooden games and books for your relaxing pleasure. French doors lead from the living room to the large open kitchen. The renovated kitchen has an island and seating area for friends and family to pull up a stool and join in the conversation! The kitchen has a microwave, professional DCS gas stove, coffeemaker, toaster, dishes (both casual and formal Wedgwood), utensils, glasses and cookware. To the right of the foyer is the formal dining room. The original marble fireplace and piano make the dining room a warm and inviting space.

2nd Floor House Layout: On the right is a large master suite with a queen size bed and two closets. A second bedroom has two twin beds. Both rooms on the right have separate doors that lead to the full bath with tub/shower.

To the left of the stairs is a second master suite with a queen size bed and sitting area with a 1.5 size chair that opens to a twin size bed. There is another room on the left with a full-size bed - both rooms with separate doors lead to another full size bathroom with a shower. There is off-street parking for 3 vehicles.

Arrangements can be made for a housekeeper, if desired.

Why Ann chose Middletown

We've been booking our beautiful home in Newport since we purchased and renovated it in 2003. We pride ourselves on treating our booking groups as if they are our friends staying at the house!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I rented your Newport house this summer. I just wanted to write to let you know how thoroughly we enjoyed staying in your lovely home. It was so tastefully appointed, everywhere one looked there was something to delight the eye. Also, it was great to have such an abundance of kitchenware, towels, etc.

Every member of the family loved it and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Large, comfortable, clean and ideally located for exploring Newport.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in April/May 2017,

the dwelling is large, comfortable and well appointed. Suited our needs perfectly with large travelling party, 4 large bedrooms, airy and comfortable.

The kitchen, dining and living area are clean and well appointed with every convenience available and in good condition. Our party had no complaints with this lovely dwelling and would have no hesitation in staying again should we be lucky enough to holiday in Newport.

Location is ideal for exploring Newport, a comfortable walk into town or to the nearby beaches and cliff walk, which is well worth exploring.

Highly recommended.

This house is well appointed w/all the amenities you could possible want. We had 8 adults staying here and we all were very comfortable & each couple had their own room. There is a 1/2 bath on the main floor & 2 full baths to share upstairs. Not one single complaint here except that the water pressure is definitely low. That's a very small sacrifice when compared to the rest. The owner of the home treated us very well & even sent a bouquet of fresh flowers to welcome us. There are nice people in the world, and although we haven't met the owners, by bet is on them being part of that group. You truly can't go wrong w/this spot. It's within walking distance to the Cliff Walk, very easy to get to a grocery store, down town Newport AND is close to the mansions. Simply perfect!

Newport offers a vacation experience with incomprehensible beauty and interest. A top destination spot, Newport boasts a wide range of activities including the following sampling: International Tennis Hall of Fame with grass courts; sailing; golf; horseback riding; kite-sailing; scuba; cycling; walking/hiking; windsurfing; croquet; kayaking; canoeing; international polo games; international tennis matches; international music series; 50th anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival; International Film Festival, restaurants; ferry for day trips; dinner train experiences; marinas and sunbathing at Newport's Easton's Beach or take a bike ride or drive down scenic Ocean Drive for picnics or kite flying. A trip to Newport wouldn't be complete without a tour of the famous mansions such as The Elms, The Breakers, Marble House, Chateau-sur-Mer and Rosecliff to name a few. Newport's famed Cliff Walk with its spectacular view is 1 block from the house.
