Great vacation spot. We will be back. Gracious hosts and adorable animals. Close to everything you need including eating places, coffee, biking roads, etc. One little suggestion: Us vertically challenged people could use a step stool to get into the bathtub!

Great little house for a bachelorette party!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my best friends bachelorette party. The space was very clean and super unique. Lots of character and it’s big enough so that everyone can have their own space! We took an Uber from here to Newport for only $40. Seeing the goats was awesome. The fresh eggs are a plus!!

Fun, goat-filled relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to unwind for a few days, and Goatopia delivered. Our two-year old was thrilled by the goats and chickens, and the adults enjoyed them as well. We found Goatopia a quiet and relaxing place to hang out, and the goats and grounds added to the ambiance. Barbara is wonderful, and is deeply concerned that her guests enjoy their stay.

The art, the wrap-around goat pen, the fairy garden, the big tub, dining al fresco with the fireflies (and goats), and the fresh eggs made for a unique vacation we will always remember!

One of a kind experience

  • 4 of 5

Great hosts with spot on recommendations on local eats and what to avoid, free spirit atmosphere, whimsical experience. Fresh eggs and a playful dog made you feel at home. Don’t pass on the goat parade; it is ok to be a kid again.

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, It was a real pleasure having your family stay with us. Thanks so much for choosing The Goat Cottage for your naval history visit to Rhode Island. It was nice talking to you on the goat trail and meeting your submarine expert father in law. Thanks for writing your review. I hope the rest of your visit was great. Safe travels till next time. Sincerely, Barbara

Magic Kingdom!

  • 5 of 5

Goatopia is an incredibly beautiful place - on a spit of land surrounded by water, filled with light and art and everything you could imagine in terms of comfort and creative space. Barb, the owner, is absolutely delicious - warm, easy-going and incredibly generous. Fresh eggs from the chickens! Fresh lettuce from the garden! Art supplies! She even loaned us a leash for our dog, when ours proved to be too restraining. The goats are delightful! The whole experience has been magical, and we can't wait to come back!
