We just had the pleasure of spending a wonderful fall week at this lovely, secluded, cottage on the lake. This well-equiped, nicely furnished home, is situated in a suburb of Newport. This is a convenient base for exploring the entire Newport area. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, and we would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful rental. It has very comfortable and contemporay furnishings, and feels just like home.
My husband and I spent a week with friends at this amazing home. The grounds are pristine, landscaping impeccable, home immaculate, sense of peacefulness priceless. Our two dogs loved running around the large property and we enjoyed walking along paths covered with rhododendrons, dipping our toes in the lake, talking, laughing, playing board games, and getting away from the havoc that is everyday life. I don't know when I have relaxed more. Linda told us we need only bring ourselves and our personal items and she was so right. The house was complete with kitchenware and pantry necessities, luxurious linens, toiletries and even laundry detergent! If you are looking to escape and relax, look no further. This is the place and we look forward to returning next summer. Thanks again Linda, Maggie
My husband and I spent a week with friends at this amazing home. It was all that we expected and more - exquisite landscaping, impeccable grounds, immaculately clean living space and a peacefulness that will keep us coming back for years to come. We had everything we needed including kitchenware, laundry soap, fine linens, etc. Linda told us we need only bring our personal items and she was absolutely correct. Our two dogs loved running all over the property. We enjoyed walking along the quiet paths covered with
rhododendrons, dipping our toes in the lake, talking, laughing, playing board games, and escaping from the havoc of everyday life. If you are looking to relax, look no further, this is the place!
I can't say enough great things about this house. My family of four (a toddler and a baby) stayed for a week and it was perfect for us. The house is set back on a private road, so it is nice and quiet but you are still a ten-minute drive to town (with great stores, some restaurants and delicious ice cream) and the beaches. It's clear that the owners did not skimp on any of the furnishings, everything is pretty high end throughout. The house is pretty much all windows with beautiful views of the pond. There is a little sandy area by the pond and dock, which was perfect for my three-year-old to play in, and the house comes with a boat, kayak and canoe to use out on the pond. The dock is also really nice to sit on with two adirondack chairs. The kitchen is well stocked, everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. One downside is there is no bath, just showers, so keep that in mind if you are traveling with little ones.
Upon arriving at the home we knew had made the right choice. We were looking for a place to unwind and leave the stresses of our business behind us. The home is in a wonderful location, attractive, clean, well appointed. In fact, we liked the home so much we would like to build one just like it in our home state of North Carolina. To bring our pet was an added bonus! The owners were gracious and made you feel welcomed! Can't wait to go back.
I really didn't want to leave this home. It is so beautifully designed and well appointed. Needless to say it is immaculate. The floor to ceiling windows in the living room are stunning as are the views of the lake from every window in the house. Beautiful stone walls surround the property and the front and backyard patios are bordered with stone. The grounds are exceptional. There are large hostas and baskets of impatiens and geraniums. Azaleas and native rhododendrum trees with gnarled bark surround the property ensuring privacy and seclusion. And then there is the lake with its tranquil movements. This is truly a sanctuary.
Nearby is the town of Wakefield. We found the Belmont grocery store with its gourmet meats and had the most delicious barbeque on the backyard patio. We also found Casey's restaurant which serves the best fish and chips in New England (my opinion). Much of our time was spent on the patio where we sat and ate and watched as canoes and rowboats passed by on the lake. And my husband spent a lot of his time on the dock, taking the rowboat out and enjoying a swim and an occasional nap. We also took a drive to Narragansett Pier and the port of Galillee, nostalgic places for the two of us.
This is the perfect place for us to vacation and look forward to returning again soon.
