About the property

2 loft bedrooms with twin beds, 1 bathroom with shower ,sleeps 1-3 comfortably

Lovely shingled waterfront cottage in a peaceful setting overlooking Narragansett Bay in historic Bristol, Rhode Island. Completely furnished with all amenities and includes French doors leading to an enclosed porch overlooking the Bay as well as a small frog and fish pond. Guests may also enjoy a newly constructed dock which overlooks small Walkers Island - a nesting site for egrets and shore birds. A short walk away is historic Bristol with its many fine restaurants, shops, sites and colonial architecture.

Beautiful views and sunsets over the harbor are yours to enjoy after a day of sightseeing, shopping, or touring one of the many historic sights Bristol or the surrounding areas of Newport or Providence has to offer.

Surrounding sites - Bristol, RI: Historic Bristol was founded in 1681 and has been known as a colonial seaport town ever since. It's beauty and charm, colonial architecture and Federal period houses have been admired by all who visit. Delightful shops, a plethora of fine restaurants, a beautiful winding bike path and the grandeur of Narragansett Bay have all combined to make this a very special place. Access to other places of interest is easy - Newport is 20min. away by car, Brown University approx. 40 min. away, Boston - 1hr/15min., and Roger Williams University is but a 5 min. walk. Ferry rides to the surrounding islands can be had twice a day, and Summer trips on the Bay Queen passenger boat going to Newport saves gas and offers you a delightful lunch as well as a lecture on the varieties of sea life in the Bay.

Sweetest Cottage in Bristol!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Cottage for three days in June...and what a charming place it is. The most beautiful view that anyone could ask for, and so peaceful. Keep in mind all the beds are twins, and for taller men you need to watch your head a little, but I truly adored the place. Ginny was the best hostess...made sure we had everything we needed...and great ideas for things to do. (Some unbelieveable gardens just a walk down the waterline). I really fell in love with that breezy screened porch and hated to leave, but all good things....

Bristol is great town with wonderful restaurants and shops. Really enjoyed the Hourglass Brasserie, and the DeWolf Tavern...restaurants that would be amazing in a big city, much less a small town. It's a pleasant one mile walk into town for anything.

Stunning waterfront idyll

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot and delightful accommodation with such history and interest to it. Plenty of space and facilities, and very near to so much on Rhode Island. Ginny was ever helpful and the location really is something else, even in the rain and gales we had, it was just beautiful to stay somewhere like this!

A Charming Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a few days with my grandsons and we were so delighted with the cottage (pictures were great!)and its beautiful views and Ginny's wonderful hospitality! All her recommendations were perfect...whether it was a beach or a place for breakfast. She made us feel right at home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in lovely Bristol. I look forward to returning sometime and have shared my experiences with friends.

Just delightful

  • 5 of 5

Ginny was a wonderful hostess and she has a journal in the cottage that tells the story of her house and the building of the cottage - delightful. The cottage is adorable and true to it's photos. It is convenient to Newport and Providence and the little town of Bristol is so pleasant and welcoming. We were looking to get a feel for the area our son was to be staying in while at college. We loved the bagel shop in town and Quito's on the bay. Bristol Pizza is also very good. I hope you, too, can enjoy it as much as we did.

The best little house in Bristol!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most romantic weekend getaway for my wife and I and the Innkeeper is the most pleasant person to help with a weekend. If you ask her nicely, she just might show you her beautiful gardens! The view of the water was so relaxing and felt like we could reach out and touch the water. We'll be coming back soon!
