About Howard Zwick

I am a former radio and television executive and have built several homes, I've enjoyed completely updating our lovely Jamestown house to include all new systems, a 60 foot front porch, the pub, and pool.

Why Howard Zwick chose Jamestown (Conanicut Island)

Most people who visit Jamestown want to enjoy the village and it's marinas, restaurants and shops. Autumn House is situated in the beautiful historic neighborhood of Shoreby Hill which rises above the scenic harbor facing Newport.

The house itself has an amazing floorplan with seven rooms on the main floor alone and is perfect for entertaining.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of Autumn House are that there are very few homes within the village that offer central air conditioning, a swimming pool, three fireplaces, a sixty foot wicker furnished front porch, corner location and such beautiful grounds.

With five bedrooms, the house accommodates ten plus two rollaway beds for extra guests.

You will enjoy being able to walk down the hill to the harbor, restaurants, shops and seasonal ferry to Newport without having to drive into town.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time renting this beautiful home. My kids loved playing in the pool every day. The property was well-maintained and clean. The location was great, within walking distance to town and waterfront. Jamestown is a small, very quaint town with great restaurants and stores. Newport is just over the bridge. We ended up visiting some of Newport's great historic mansions for a day. The owners are lovely people and very helpful. The customer service was outstanding! My family and I would highly recommend this property

Nine mature women arrived for a 3 night stay and were thoroughly impressed with the home. Met by the owners who showed us around and explained the nuances of the home. The house was very comfortable and more than met our expectations: plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms for 9 women plus more than enough space and options for sitting around talking or eating. Kitchen is well stocked for cooking and eating-in. Enjoyed the pool and many outdoor sitting areas including the comfortable front porch. Close proximity (walking distance) to quaint village where the dining was great and drove to beach nearby. Easy access to Newport, RI.

The owners are quite generous making sure their guests fell at home. The home is well maintained with plenty of gathering places, Bar, Pool, Kitchen, Living Room all were outstanding.

The location was 1st exit off the bridge walking distance to Jamestown. Thank you both for giving us a stress free, comfortable home!

With Newport just across the bridge you can shop and site see or just stay at home at the pool all day and then relax on the grand front porch. Jamestown with this property is a must stay.

  • 5 of 5

Howard and Susan were a delight to work with. The house was great! It had everything there for us, sheets, towels, every cooking supply we needed. I wish it was warmer so we could have taken advantage of the heated pool more and wonderful backyard! I would highly recommend renting this house! It was a great experience!
