About Jay

Conveniently located in an area of Barrington known as Prince's Hill, named for Thomas Prince. In 1652 The Plymouth (Massachusetts) land court granted Mr. Prince this land formerly occupied by the native Wampanoags. Now Prince's Hill is the center of commerce and business in Barrington.

This cozy house was built on the last remaining vacant land that at the turn of the 20th century was once our family farm. The original farm house built in 1899 still stands just behind this house. The single quince fruit tree in the back yard is the last from dozens of apple and fruit trees that once made up the local family orchard.

Jay purchased this house in 1990

Why Jay chose Rhode Island Coastal

This house is ideally located close to commerce, public office, public library and center of activity in Barrington... a short drive to local beaches and state attractions. About an hour’s drive to nearby Cape Cod and Boston.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay. Great little house, just the perfect size for the two of us; and, very close to our family who live in town.

Would like to thank you for such a great setup; very clean, neat and tidy. The house seemed to have everything we needed and we got a great homey feeling, like a home away from home, it made for a fantastic holiday stay. Also, thanks for the snow removal work sunday morning, it helped a lot!

We had a lovely time staying at Jay's house. It had all the necessary items needed for our five night stay. It was wonderful being in the heart of Barrington which made it very easy to access multiple shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend the property!

Barrington rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a little over a month at this rental in Barrington, RI. It was a perfect fit for us. The home was very well equipped, spotless and extremely comfortable. Everything we needed was provided in each room of the house.

The owner was always available to answer any questions and provided us with anything we needed to make our stay even more pleasant.

The location was excellent and we enjoyed exploring the area and being able to visit with our family who live a mere 3 miles away.. We look forward to returning next year and enjoying this comfy home once more.

Thank you so much..

Excellent rental in just about every way.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience from beginning to end. The reservation process was easy to use and efficient. The home was super clean and comfortable. All that renters would need was provided from pots and pans to linens and towels and all levels of supplies. The manager was very responsive to our needs. All in all, a very positive experience.

Wonderful and well-equipped cottage in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I traveled to Rhode Island to visit family and friends for two weeks and stayed at Jay's awesome little cottage. When we arrived, the cottage was very clean and fully stocked with towels, bed linens, pantry staples like salt and pepper, spices, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, and more. It also had central air and a nest thermostat, which was a godsend during an especially hot summer. It had a wonderful sun room that was perfect for drinking coffee or having an evening cocktail in.

My favorite part of the cottage? It's location! Located in a lovely and historic seaside town, the cottage within walking distance of the green and canopied East Bay Bike path, restaurants, (pizza, thai, ice cream, gelato, bakeries and more) and even a grocery store. In addition, Providence is a short 10 minute drive away. We were very pleased and would recommend this cottage to anyone. Thank you for your hospitality, Jay!
