About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Our Newport home is a quaint, inviting and relaxing retreat. It is situated in the perfect location for visitors looking to experience all that Newport has to offer. One end of the block empties onto historic Thames Street with its restaurants, bars, shops, and galleries. The other end leads you to the renowned Newport mansions in all their grandeur. A short walk takes you to the famous Cliff Walk path, and a few minutes drive brings you to gorgeous sand beaches. In addition, summers in Newport will entice you with numerous events, activities, and options that will keep you as busy as you want to be. Even with all of the choices, one of our favorite places is the front porch on a beautiful summer morning with a cup of coffee or in the evening with a bottle of wine. If you want to experience summer in New England, this quintessential Newport cottage is the place to start.

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely the best experience in this very ideally located, comfortable and charming house. Jay and Melissa were extremely attentive and fun. The neighbors were also delightful and helpful with suggestions for things to do and places to go. We are already looking forward to returning for 6 weeks in 2017.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Six of us recently stayed here during Folk Fest and Jazz Fest weekends and the middle week. The house is clean, up to date and in a great location. The owners are great to deal with, and the neighbors on the block fun and laid back. In short, will be staying here again!

Adorable house with EVERYTHING you need

Nothing forgotten. House doesn't have that rental feel. Super cozy. Well equipped. Comfortable beds. Would stay here again in a heart beat if I ever stay in Newport again.

Great time!

The house was just what we wanted and everything we needed. Spent lots of time at the beach and around town. Mornings and evenings on the porch were exceptional.

Perfect family spot in Newport

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough good things about this rental home. We spent five nights here from June 17-21, 2012 and it was everything we needed it to be, with easy access to Newport's downtown area, mansions and beaches. The property has an enclosed back yard, the neighbors are nice, and the interior amenities make it just like home. The house was clean as a whistle when we arrived and the hosts seemingly thought of everything that we -- and our children -- might need to further enjoy our stay.The owners were super easy to work with and were very kind. It was a pleasure to rent this home from them, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone wishing to enjoy a relaxing stay in beautiful Newport.

Wonderful vacation!!! We felt right at home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented this home for a fabulous week-long vacation in Newport. Melissa was great to deal with through every step of the process. She is friendly, professional, and has excellent knowledge of the Newport area as well as what people need in a vacation home. The house was immaculate and bright, and the fenced-in yard was well maintained. We had more than enough room for two adults, three 17-year-old boys, and two pugs. Melissa thought of everything, from toiletries to condiments and spices to games and books. We especially loved having a gas grill so we could eat dinner at home a couple of times, and the washer and dryer (with laundry soap) were a blessing. The location cannot be beat! It is close enough to walk to the grocery store for fresh rolls and fruit in the morning and close enough to walk downtown for dinner without the hassle of driving and parking, yet the street is remarkably quiet. We prefer Second Beach, which is only a short five minute drive from the house, but my husband and I did walk down to First Beach and the Cliff Walk a couple of times in the early morning. We have been to Newport several times and always stayed in a hotel, but after staying at Jay and Melissa's home, we wouldn't stay anywhere else again! We are already counting down the days until next year's trip!

Home to spectacular coastal scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, a thriving waterfront downtown, and welcoming hospitality, Newport, Rhode Island is considered by many to be a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. There are endless things to see and do in Newport; visitors can browse the shops and galleries on Thames Street, sample local fare at the numerous bars and restaurants, tour the historic mansions, relax on a sandy beach, explore the famous cliff walk trail, or take in a polo match at the nearby Newport Polo Club. There is no better place to spend time in the summer than the scenic and vibrant town of Newport!
