Perfect summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the accommodations and all the little extras: coffee, cheese, crackers, grapes and more. This is a nice quiet location but close to great dining and beaches. We enjoyed activities in Newport, RI and then returned here for a relaxed evening. Everything seemed perfect to us and we would definitely return!

pitch perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend stay at the Gables! George & Diane have a lovely, charming rental cottage and it was was surprisingly spacious. They thoughtfully left a treat of white wine, cheese, and crackers. It's a short drive to Newport but Tiverton has it's own delights as well. We went on the Rail Explorers in Portsmouth and had a blast. This cottage is just perfect for a couple or small family. Would love to visit again!

Even better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

This little studio was very charming and immaculate. After an entire day of travel I arrived to a gracious welcome by the hosts, Diane and George. There was cheese, fruit and crackers, small bottles of wine and a lemon tea loaf in the refrigerator. The location is within walking distance of a small local beach, and an excellent restaurant. Very much a home away from home.
