~ This is our weekend 'home away from home' that we rent for a few selected times. It is a fully equipped 3 bedroom 'home', with a small backyard for BBQ, and a GREAT front porch for sitting in the rocking chairs and watching life happen. We are 3 blocks from the downtown heart of Bristol, and about 200 feet from the July 4 parade route...walk down to the corner and you are at the parade, come back to the house to cool off. We have washer/dryer in the house. The public bus to take you to Newport is at the corner. Our house is fully modernized and air-conditioned. We have cable-based internet, and an HD TV/dvd player. IMPORTANT NOTES: 1) We do NOT have cable TV channels activated; 2) The bathroom/shower & bedrooms are upstairs - this is not a wheelchair-accessible house (there is a 1/2 bath on the main floor); 3) Kids are OK, but we have multiple glass-topped tables; 4) There are beds for 6 in 3 bedrooms, plus a full size fold-out sleeper couch in the living room, and we also have 2 extra mattresses that can be put on the floor for a total of 'sleeps 10' - but with greatly reduced privacy. Pets: Dog (only) is Ok.

We live about 2 hours away, and come to Bristol almost every weekend. We were looking for over 2 years for a charming New England waterfront town, and finally found Bristol.
Rick purchased this House in 2009
Why Rick chose Bristol
We wanted a smaller property that is right in-town so we can walk to restaurants, boutiques, cafes. Basically, we wanted our weekend to be located be 'in civilization'. AND, we wanted off-street parking and a nice small yard for family BBQs/outdoor socializing.
What makes this House unique
Our house is close enough to in-town entertainment, yet being a few blocks from the center of town, the noise from nightlife does not disturb us. The best part is the front porch...it's the perfect place to relax.

Charming and updated home, top notch
We were looking forward to the quaint town and house, but it was even better than expected. The kitchen is updated and nice furniture in the living room. Bedrooms upstairs were all very nice, definitely keeping with the historical appeal but also very comfortable. Facilities are adequate. The closets were stocked with towels (like 20?) and cupboards had paper plates and plasticware. And yes the town is every bit as charming as you would expect. Walking to nice seafood places is less than 5 minutes. We tried Robertos, Pomodoro Pizza, and hhe Bristol Oyster Bar. We were going to the beach in Barrington as my dad lives there, but we were told there are pretty good beaches in Bristol, Or just go to Barrington its only 15 minutes. In all we were delighted with our stay at Ricks house, we hope to stay again next year and we are sure you will be happy with it.
Fantastic Home - Ideal Location - Cant wait for ne
This home is a real gem. the pictures just dont do it justice. Location is amazing. Walk to the water is just right there...walk to the gorgeous main street area in a few feet. Rick is a great host, easy to work with and we had everything we could possible need. Cant wait until our next stay!
This is a very beautiful home! staying here made for a perfect vacation. The house is ideal, and the location is great - we loved staying in such a central area. The owner has put together a very detailed document of where to eat, shop, party, and go touristing. The house is perfect and we had a great time. - Ruta and Peter
Bristol is a charming 'modernized' historic town on the East side of Narragansett Bay...which has a rich seafaring tradition. Many America's Cup racing yachts were built here. Newport - mansions, hard-core tourist scene - is a 30 minute drive (or bus ride) from Bristol. The town has many boutiques, cafes, bars/restaurants.
