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 Shoreby Hill
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 property! Quiet location. Lots of space. Loved hanging out on the front porch.
Howard and Susan are very responsive hosts. Lots of rooms to hang out in. We really enjoyed the pub and the porch, and the heated pool was great too.
Perfect home for Jamestown wedding weekend
We had a wonderful time staying at Autumn house. Howard and Susan were extremely easy to work with from the initial booking of their home for the weekend to giving us a guided tour upon our arrival. There were 11 of us that were very comfortable for our long weekend stay. We enjoyed the pool with outdoor stereo speakers and the built in grill area for our cooking all weekend.
The pub was one of our favorite areas to gather and there was plenty of room along with the connecting dining room and large living room. We highly recommend a visit to this beautiful home!
6 STARS! Fabulous house, perfect for a large group or family!
We loved this home on Shoreby Hill, so full of charm, history and family feel. It’s an estate really, with huge rooms everywhere, great outdoor space, beautiful pool, and The Pub, where everyone seemed to congregate in the late evenings. But perhaps the best part was our gracious hosts, Susan and Howard, who were so helpful and welcoming, before and during our stay. We hope to return someday for another stay!
Perfect Home for a Large Family Gathering
Truly wonderful front porch; family gathered there all throughout our weekend stay. We hosted an extended family brunch the morning after the wedding and found the kitchen stocked with all culinary tools and serving pieces we needed. Since we traveled a distance, having all linens provided made the stay very easy. Staying in Jamestown was very relaxing; we could take advantage of all that Newport has to offer but get away from the traffic/noise. Hosts were helpful and gracious. High marks all around.
Perfect large family get away
We had the pleasure of renting Autumn house for a large family vacation. In total we had 16 different friends and family members stay with us throughout the week (not all at the same time) and this house was the perfect setting. We were very attracted to the house especially with the heated pool as we have small children and thought full day beach excursions would be tough.. it was perfect! The house provided ample and comfortable sleeping options, the kitchen and grill area have all the amenities for entertaining and cooking, and we enjoyed the large living spaces and bar area for family game nights! I've stayed many times in Newport but not Jamestown and we loved walking around town daily, dining out, going to the shops (especially the fish and cheese markets) and seeing the lighthouse! We made the quick drive to Newport several times as well!
Howard and Susan were lovely hosts, who made us feel so comfortable in their home. They offered toys to our young son, and conversation to our parents. They were prompt, responsive and very generous with their time and communication.
We hope to come back next year and enjoy more time snuggled up on the porch!! #priceless
jamestown family vacation
we loved our stay in jamestown,ri the owners of the house, susan and howard zwick, were there to greet us when we arrived and were extremely helpful. the house had all the amenities needed for our family (6 adults and 5 kids). there was plenty of space in the house for everyone. the kitchen was well equipped. the location was great (walking distance to town and harbor). the pool was a little small but adequate and nicely heated and clean. parking was plentiful for 3 or more cars. the artwork was enjoyable to view. the landscaping was mature so we had a feeling of privacy. we felt safe and comfortable with the location of the house. the beds were great (no backaches in the morning) and towels and other supplies were provided so moving in was easy. the air conditioning worked very well. sitting on the front porch with numerous comfortable chairs to pick from was very relaxing. can't think of anything that would make the house better for us.
Your family was fabulous and we enjoyed meeting everyone and hope to see you all back next year.
