Nice week

  • 5 of 5

I had a great week at this property. It was great that I could find a house that would let me bring my dog. We had to go in the off-season, otherwise the beaches would be off limits with the dog. The fenced in backyard will keep your dog from getting loose, and there were even food and water bowls available to use. There were maps and books listing things to do, as well as books to read, some DVDs, jig saw puzzles and board games for those rainy days. Newport and Jamestown are about 45 minutes away, Point Judith is about 30 minutes, and Watch Hill is about 30 minutes. I am looking forward to returning next year.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really felt at home here and had never really explored RI before so the location was perfect! We appreciated the pet-friendly yard & the rooftop patio! Used it every morning and evening. The master bed was extremely comfortable!

Only changes I would make were to add a tv to the master bedroom. We had 2 teenage boys who took over the tv room and that left us with only our laptop to watch on.

Kitchen, living areas could've been a bit cleaner, but overall we really enjoyed our stay and owners were very responsive! I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or a relative.

Owner's Response: We're sorry if the house wasn't as clean as you'd like. We are surprised to hear this as we hired a new cleaning service last year and found the house immaculate the times we were there. Future renters, please do let us know if you find the house less than clean.

Great house for a family with a dog!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our dog, and I have been to the C shack twice - once pre child and the latest time with our child and we had a great time on each occasion. The fenced in yard is great for our Scottie and our 1 year old.

Our two favorite things about this house is the roof deck and the screened in back porch. We loved going up to the roof deck with a glass of wine at night or with our coffee the next morning. The owner is also great to work with and very responsive. Highly recommended for small families! Anything over 4 people would probably be a squeeze.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was great. The enclosed back porch, rooftop deck and outdoor shower were my favorites! My dog loved to hang out on the rooftop in the evenings. It was definitely a dog friendly home which I greatly appreciated.

We love this house! It was clean and provided all the necessities for cooking and grilling. The neighborhood is quiet and we were reluctant to leave at the end of the week. We had a blast with our dog in the fenced yard, relaxing on the roof deck and patio and walking to the beach. We love the restaurants and farmers markets in the area, which Amy nicely recommended. Can't say enough nice things about this experience.
