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!
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!!
It was really fun to have you and your friends celebrate the third bachelorett party at The Goat Cottage! Thanks so much for writing a review. Im wishing the newly weds much happiness and all of you lots of fun with everyone at the wedding! Yours truly, Barbara
Fun, goat-filled relaxation.
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!
Hi Ned , I enjoyed meeting and getting to know your family very much . Calla Lily is precious . I hope you find your dream farm home . If you ever have any questions about chickens or goats give me a call. We’ve been through many phases. Looking thru my phone last night I found some great pictures of you . I will send them .Best wishes to you - Yours truly Barbara ox
One of a kind experience
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.
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
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!
Hi Helen and Donna,
We were writing at the same time just now. I'm so glad you chose to stay at The Goat Cottage . I loved meeting both of you and River loooooooved playing with Roshi so much.
Till we meet again best wishes to all of you
Thank you from Barb and River
One of a Kind!
My partner and I just spent the weekend with another couple at Goatopia, and we all found it to be a delightful sanctuary and aesthetic wonderland! The property itself is beautiful and expansive. Numerous heady and whimsical art and sculptures endow it with a far out feel. Very trippy! The house itself is a psychedelic masterpiece. Nice open space, with the kind of decor that just melts away the day-to-day and brings you to a place where you can truly relax!
Possibly the most Zen aspect of Goatopia is the goats themselves. They are adorable and curious, and they are visible from inside!
The surrounding towns are scenic and have plenty of tourist destinations. This is a great central location if you want beaches, Newport shopping and restaurants, or a relaxing country drive. We would all gladly stay here again.
It was wonderful and fun to meet all of you. I'm so happy you chose and enjoyed The Goat Cottage. I LOVED the wonderful drawings with great messages ! Thankyou ......Till we see each other again - the very best to you all from Mark and Barb
