Wonderful getaway.. very pleased with the property and the owner!

  • 4 of 5

The property was wonderful, just as described. Very clean, well equipped and a relaxing setting. We visited RI during a very rainy weekend, 2 full days of rain! Despite that drawback we still enjoyed ourselves. While we did not have the opportunity to meet Cara personally, she was very helpful with shopping & dining suggestions and made us feel welcome. We have already recommended this place to 3 friends & family and look forward to returning ourselves.. hopefully in better weather!

Every year we come to Bristol and stay at the Sailor's Loft. Cara does an excellent job and is extremely accommodating. The place is cozy over looking the harbor. Highly recommended.

Great Rental - Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Sailor's Loft was a perfect rental for us while we visited family in the Bristol area over the Holiday weekend.

Renting was so easy and the owners responded quickly to the few questions we had through the process.

This lovely studio was spacious enough for our party of 3 adults and the entire space was pristine.

We enjoyed the comfy beds, and found the location to be very quiet even though we were right in the middle of town.

After exploring the many great retail and coffee shops only a few steps away we toured the fabulous Blithewold mansion (not to be missed) and found many unique holiday gifts while were here.

We will certainly return to the Loft and have already recommended it to several friends!

even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This place and location is excellent. It was very clean and close to a nice historic town. My wife and I spent a solid day walking the town to get in some travel photography. The owners were very nice. Not a single complaint. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to bristol.

Great view and location!

  • 5 of 5

The Sailor's Loft was comfortable and convenient to the shops and restaurants in Bristol as well as the waterfront. We were able to walk to the shops and restaurants. It is also a short drive to Newport. We also enjoyed the water view from the loft.

Our host was very nice and accommodating. The only complaint we had which is minor is that there is nowhere in the shower to put your soap, shampoo, etc. It could use an over the faucet caddy to make showering a little easier. Other than that our stay was wonderful. If we return to the area, we will definitely stay there again.
