About Cindy Hall

I was a RI Realtor for 35 years and fell in love with Wickford Village. My husband and I were married here in St Paul's Church and raised our two children here. We purchased this wonderful historic home in 1993 and spent one year renovating this Queen Anne Victorian, formally built for the Governor of RI, Governor William Gregory in 1883

Cindy Hall purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Cindy Hall chose Rhode Island Coastal

In 1993 this wonderful Queen Anne Victorian was a listing in the real estate office across the street that I was working for. The property was in terrible neglected disrepair and I showed it to potential buyers and curious lookers many times. They shook their heads and informed me "It was just too much work". I knew my husband and I could bring it back to the former beauty that it was and so after many months on the market we made an offer and had the privledge of becoming the owners and caregivers to this wonderful Queen Anne Victorian prize. The renovation and repair was a full time one year commitment to bring this home back to the condition it deserved to be. We hope you enjoy your stay here, in this wonderful historic home!

What makes this apartment unique

A warm, comfortable, enchanting apartment with the comforts of today and the historical character of days gone by. Enjoy the Sunnflower House! (The tallest building in Wickford, with the sunflower plaque on the side of the house!)

Memories are made here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here at the Sunflower House. This place has a special meaning for us & that's why we were delighted to return here to have a nostalgic vacation. You see, 50 years ago my hubby was in the Navy & stationed at the nearby Seabee base. He rented an apartment upstairs in this very house. This is where we began our life together as young newlyweds. Life had taken us back to Oregon after the Navy. When my husband asked what I wanted to do for our 50th anniversary I said I want to return to Wickford. We'd traveled to the area in 2011& found that it might be possible to rent the downstairs apartment. Wow! What a grand idea! We were pleased with all the upgrades & the super friendly & helpful owner. We enjoyed reading the history of the house & once again exploring the area. 38 Brown Street is indeed very special to us & will be forever. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the "Sunflower House" (also known as Governor Gregory's house), for your very special anniversary! I enjoyed meeting you and hearing about the way it was back in 1966, when you lived in this historic house! You will always be welcome back! All our best Anniversary Wishes for you! Cindy and Bryson

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I had the pleasure of a two night stay at this property and it was fantastic. Cozy and comfortable with a feeling of home. There was a binder full of information about local shops, eateries and tourist attractions. The surrounding areais fabulous. Lots of great shops and friendly people everywhere. The only downfall was that our stay was short. I hope to return again in the future.

Wonderful stay in Wickford

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and it just was not long enough. Great location and apt was great. Very comfortable bed and plenty of room for us. It was close to many attractions and was a peaceful place to spend time. Would love to go back and explore more and Cindy was great to work with and quick to respond.

What a great apt to spend a week!

This house was exactly how it was described. Clean neat, peaceful, and very comfortable. Had everything we needed for a getaway. Located in the heart of charming historic Wickford. Close to Newport, Narragansett and various beautiful beaches. Cindy was very helpful and responsive. I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to visit RI.

A perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything I had hoped it would be. My husband and I enjoyed the lovely little village of Wickford. We arrived mid afternoon and enjoyed sitting out on the deck of the cafe in town. An added bonus that we saw the blue Angels fly in for the airshow was a treat. The cafe is a good place for breakfast and enjoying the waterfront view. Dined at the restaurant across the street on Friday night and had and excellent meal and a great waitress. Saturday we explored several places near by, the locals are very friendly and shared any interesting places we might not have found on our own. Jamestown was a quick drive and on to Newport. The Sunflower apartment was very comfortable and welcoming. Everything you would need and then some. The sitting area outside was a nice bonus. Although we did not use the kitchen much, it was well stocked and maybe next time we will eat in. The location is just a brief walk to the village and the main road although busy during the day was not loud and very quiet at night. I hope to come back at another date and relax in this great spot. Cindy was very nice to deal with and although we did not have any questions, I am sure that she would have been very prompt had we had needed her help. I would consider this property for a relaxing place to come back to after a days exploring! Thank you Cindy and Bryson for sharing your lovely apartment!
