2 years of great times in Jamestown. Planning on many more.

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at Katherine's charming Jamestown beach house for the past two years. The first year, we were new to Jamestown and were delighted with Conanicut Island. The perfect combination of laid-back island living with natural beauty and proximity to the upbeat pulse of Newport.

The location of this house to the beach at Mackerel Cove can't be beat, but the location is also perfect for a leisurely bike ride around the island, down into town, or to one of Conanicut Island's parks like Beavertail, Fort Wetherill, or Fort Getty.

The property itself is perfect for families. A nice spacious yard for the kids to run around in, play on the playset, or climb the copper beech tree next to the driveway. There is a perfectly situated hammock in a corner of the yard for the adults to supervise the young ones.

The house has plenty of room for families to spread out and enjoy their vacation together without falling all over each other. The front porch is the perfect place for a nice meal in the shade.

In short, you cannot go wrong with this wonderful Jamestown treasure.

great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cape in Jamestown for a few days while visiting family in the area in October. The house is well appointed and in a great location. My morning run was fantastic with amazing views along the water. Close to town. The yard was fun for our niece and the porch was a great spot to sit and relax. The owner included some restaurant reviews for local fare. We hope to stay there again as we didn't have enough time to explore Dutch Harbor and the parks and beaches.

Fun 5-Bedroom House in the heart of Jamestown

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days during the end of the summer season at this very relaxing house with our young child and my mother. Everyone had a wonderful time whether simply sitting on the nice front porch, swinging on the tree swing around back or biking around Jamestown. It is in a wonderful neighborhood and the proximity to one of Jamestown's main beaches reduced our need to drive and the outdoor shower was pleasant when we returned. The house is well equipped for cooking and gets lots of nice breezes through the many windows and French doors. Jamestown has many areas to explore and Newport is a quick hop across a tall bridge. We have spent a lot of time in Rhode Island but were new to Jamestown and found it a great place for summer family fun. Katherine, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and truly cares about the experience you have while sharing her home in Jamestown. Everyone will have excellent memories of this trip for a long time.

Wonderful House in Jamestown... Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to book a family get away to RI. Being that we live in Southern CT we didn't want to travel to far so we decided on RI. Have never been to Jamestown before we didn't know what to expect. Boy were we pleasantly surprised.... Jamestown is a very quaint beach town with wonderful sites to see and great restaurants and beaches. It offers close proximity to the other RI towns but without the crowds. You can pop into Newport to shop, eat or go to the beach and then leave to peace and quiet. Being that I work in NYC on a daily basis escaping the noise and the crowds is important to me.

Now on to the house.... It is the perfect beach getaway. We have 2 boys (1 and 2.5 years old)... Very active and adventurous. The house was perfect for them. There is a nice sized back yard with a play set. My oldest would spend hours out there playing. The best part of the house is it's proximity to Mackerel Cove Beach (2 min walk). Katherine has an ATW - all terrain wagon (which tenants can use) so you load it up with all your beach gear and two minutes later your feet are in the ocean. Traveling with young children is never easy so having these resources available make it a bit easier. I cannot not also say enough good things about Mackerel Cove Beach. It's on a cove so the waves aren't too big. Perfect for young swimmers to get their water time to swim or hunt shells. The best part about it is that it is never overly crowded. I was there last week in Aug (prime time) and the beach was never too busy. Lastly being that the house is so close to the beach you get a cool breeze when sitting on the covered porch. It was never to hot or humid with the fresh ocean air blowing gently by the house.

I will be planning another return to this house as it is the perfect family getaway.

The PERFECT Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This will be the sixth year that our family has stayed at Katherine's Cozy Cape on beautiful Jamestown Island. To say that we love this property is an understatement - It has been a true summer oasis that has been enjoyed equally by everyone in our family from age 3 to 73. They layout is perfect for multi-generational families and there is plenty of lawn space so that your younger ones can run wild in the safety of their own yard. The covered front porch has plenty of room for lounging and family dinners - We eat outside every night regardless of weather.

Most importantly, this house is just a short stroll to Mackerel Cove. This well-protected, shallow cove is absolutely ideal for younger swimmers and is the best beach on the island. There are only a handful of homes with this kind of proximity and, although it can get busy during the day with visitors, sunset swims are solitary and spectacular.

Now that the kids are older, they have found lots of other adventures and things to do including sailing camp at Fort Getty, day trips to Newport on the Jamestown Ferry and classes at the very cool Jamestown Arts Center. They are never bored! For restless adults, they offer short term memberships at Jamestown Fitness - a great little gym within walking distance.

The house is incredibly well-maintained and stocked - every appliance and utensil you need is there. Great beach house bonuses include private porches off the upstairs bedrooms with peek-a-boo ocean views, lovely hardwood floors for easy sand-sweeping, an outdoor shower with hot/cold water and air conditioners in four of the bedrooms.

And, with town less than a mile away, early risers can pick-up breakfast treats from "Slice of Heaven" or the whole gang can walk down for dinner or "Spinnakers" ice cream! Who knew Paradise was in Rhode Island?
