Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 8 adults, plus 3 children

Known as 'the jewel of Narragansett Bay,' Jamestown is located just across the water from the world-famous sailing races,beaches and mansions & restaurants of Newport, R.I. Known for its small town charm, Jamestown boasts a wealth of activities without the crowds that accompany Newport. From golf and tennis to quaint sandy beaches,kayaking, and bicycling, several bike races during year; you're close to it all from Stepping Stones. Organic garden offers summertime bounty available for the picking by our guests. Stepping Stones has newly tiled unground pool, outdoor shower and large, flat, private yard!

Town is just a few minute walk away, as is the island's main beach at Mackerel Cove. And for those who want to take advantage of all that Newport has to offer, a five minute trip across the bay is all it takes.

Ask anyone who comes here: There's just something about Jamestown that takes you away.
