This beautiful and charming cottage is located in a great downtown Newport location. Just 2 blocks from Bellevue Avenue, one to two miles to the beach and steps to Thames Street, enjoy everything that Newport has to offer. Walk to the waterfront, local parks and all the restaurants and shops along the harbor. The house is very clean and nicely furnished in a comfortable Pottery Barn Style and has everything you will need for your stay. It has a open layout and a lovely yard/patio off the living room which is perfect for family gatherings. All upstairs bedrooms feature skylights with one queen bed and two full size beds. This home accommodates six persons maximum. NEW outdoor shower this year!
Thank you for making our stay in Newport so memorable! We had a lovely week and really enjoyed the house. It is steps from Thames Street and all of the shops, restaurants and activity, and about a 10 min walk to the main harbor area of Newport. It was fun to live downtown and be walkable to so many things! We also enjoyed walking through the gardens of the Elms property (one of the Newport mansions) which is only a block away. If you have children, there is a great park along the water (King Park on Wellington Avenue) which is a 5-10 min walk. Beaches and Cliffwalk are easy to get to from this location (longer walk or a short drive). The house itself is clean and has all the gear you need for cooking and relaxing at home; good appliances, nice kitchen tools and cute decor. We really enjoyed grilling and relaxing on the back patio (very private with fencing and lovely gardening). Although close to many restaurants and bars, we found the house to be quiet and peaceful. As one reviewer mentioned, the third bedroom is small, but this wasn't a problem for us. The house does not have central air, but the air conditioning units work well and we all slept comfortably. Kris and David are super responsive owners if you have any problems or questions during the week, and this was greatly appreciated on our end. Would definitely consider renting again!
Just arrived. We are a little taken back. First the new outdoor shower is not enclosed that should be mentioned. Second one of the three bedrooms is a closet, very very snug for a teenager. Also this bedroom has no AC, very hot. Parking is very difficult, when we arrived had to drive around the block at least six times.
Perfect walking location to the wharf, Cliffwalk and downtown Thames shopping, restaurants/cafes and bars. Family really enjoyed walking Cliffwalk and the beaches. House was clean and included everything that we needed and very comfortable and spacious for 3 adults and 2 children. Very charming and private back yard. Would definitely rent again!!!!
We stayed here in August 2015. Location was great for walking and parking lot was conveniently located across the street. The fenced patio was great for kids and private. Bedrooms were spacious and the house was very clean. Owners very nice and accommodating to our small pet. We had a great time and we plan on staying here again!
we stayed here last year and are booking again for this summer. the house is fresh, clean; and, best of all, close to all of the things we wanted to do. the house itself had everything we needed. the outside area is adorable and private--we ate most of our meals out there. the owners were very nice--no problems. this is a gem!

The charming city of Newport is home to many wonderful things to do. Known as 'America's first Resort' there are beautiful Mansions to tour from the gilded age and other historical treasures.

There are also several vineyards in the area, polo matches in the summer, and the tennis hall of fame. Thank you!
