A favorite spot . . .year after year

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this cottage six times and always look forward to returning as we enjoy our time there immensely. For us it has the four essentials of a great summer rental:

1. A superb waterfront location with a magnificent view of Narragansett Bay

2. Well-appointed with everything you need for your stay

3. Engaged and attentive owners who want to make sure your holiday goes well

4. Dog friendly so we can bring our well-behaved dog along to enjoy the vacation.

We find the cottage’s location very good for visiting Newport or Providence or South County – however with its wonderful view and relaxing vibe there are many days when we just don’t want to go anywhere.

We highly recommend this property.

Our favorite vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage on and off since 2009. Every time we return, we are reminded why it is still our favorite vacation spot. We love the simplicity, but it lacks nothing, and the views are spectacular!

There have been recent updates as well which is an added bonus.

This cottage is perfect for families, a girlfriends getaway, couples and is the ideal spot to catch up on your reading. In my mind, I think of this as the perfect writers' cottage. We try to return every year and cherish it every time we do.

The owners are so kind and accommodating. I've never had an issue arise while vacationing here, but I am sure if I did, it would be handled in a timely manner.

I highly recommend this lovely gem on the bay.

Our home away...

  • 5 of 5

We will return next year for the third year in a row having finally found the perfect vacation rental! Everything we've ever wanted is here: stunning sunset views, peace and quiet, a beach we can stroll with our two good dogs off leash, and a comfortable clean cottage that is appointed with everything we need. Many good spots for lunches or dinners, but we have a hard time leaving the cottage and it's views. The owners are especially nice to work with and we would highly recommend this cottage to couples or small families.

The location of this cottage is remarkable. It is private, quiet, and comfortable. I love to cook and this kitchen not only has a nice selection of pots and pans, but also bowls for serving and storage. In my experience with vrbo serving bowls are not common. The location is also great for travel to surrounding historic communities. Everything is close.

We traveled with our two yorkies and they loved playing in the yard and walks on the quiet street. My husband and I are comfortable recommending this cottage to couples or small families. It was delightful and the owners were wonderful to work witu.

Simply perfection! My dog and I stayed here for five weeks while I attended school in the area, and it is one of the most memorable times in my life. We spent every night on the lawn watching the sunset, grilling, and enjoying an adult beverage or two. The location is so secluded and quite, and the community is wonderful. By the end of the first week, we had met all the neighbors and have stayed in touch ever since. The property is clean, the owner very accommodating, and there is so much to do on Aquidneck Island, but you will want to venture no further than the back yard. I highly recommend this property!

2nd time's a charm

  • 5 of 5

We took in a second vacation at this lovely cottage! Once again our stay was a delight and the perfect home base for a family vacation. Our twin boys loved the bunk beds and our dog was in 7th heaven on the beach. After mornings with coffee and the little ones playing on the private rocky beach we could head to the Newport beaches and attractions or, on a rainy day, up to Providence to explore. We always made sure to be back to enjoy the fantastic sunsets over the bay from the cottage's deck with a glass of wine. The cottage was clean and comfy and I'm sure we'll be back again to enjoy it next year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the most restful setting we could have picked. The view is spectacular. There was no place else we wanted to be. After a bit of exploration in town, we were most happy to return to this hidden gem. The kitchen is fully equipped so cooking at home was easy.
