Pamela Delaney purchased this house in 2010
Once part of a large estate owned by the Street family, the 4 acre site was split from the larger property when Mary Street sold the family estate in 1967. Mary and Harold 'Banny' Bannister, a much-beloved couple, built the home with attention to detail. Upon Banny's death at age 95, the house was readded to the original 'Street' family parcel. The home, with its sweeping lawn and views of Walker's Cove, offers a lovely setting to relax and enjoy the beauty of a southern New England coastal village. We take a special interest in wedding groups and can arrange for spa services in the home. We also welcome RWU families and are pleased to have families touring the campus, attending parents' weekends, graduations and alumni events. We also accommodate bridal groups, families, and are child friendly.
Bristol is rich in history and this property is no exception. The first Episcopal church in Bristol was located just north of the house and an historical burial site is still in evidence. The headstone of Thomas Walker circa 1745 reads 'First of his race to be buried in this place' and lies among other members of the Walker family. The graveyard is one of several specially designated historical burial grounds in Bristol.
The property offers access to the bay and boating. Moorings are available upon request. Sailors and visitors to the Herreshoff Marine Museum, boat builders and marine suppliers are welcome to this historic yachting center.
We were 4 couples and 3 children and the home accommodated us beautifully. It is well furnished and the kitchen has everything that anyone needs for entertaining up to 20. The home is well back from the highway and there is a stone wall that separates the lawn from the road, thus making it a wonderful lawn for children. Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The owners were helpful at all times. We were involved with wedding activities so there were many family members in and out, all of whom were impressed by the property.
After passing some incredible homes, we weren't sure at first glance that this was the best choice. The exterior paint and front door was quite weathered and the architecture a bit non-descript by comparison. But then Berta showed up -- on demand, despite our significant schedule change -- and after airing the house and giving us the lay of the land and great "insider" info, we felt right at home. The property is perfectly situated -- close to Bristol's charming downtown and the bridge to other destinations -- and it comfortably accommodated our large group of adult couples with all the space, style, and accoutrements we could want. At every turn, Berta was incredibly available and informative and went the extra mile -- including a late-night delivery of printed tickets -- to address our questions and needs. We would've loved a front porch to enjoy those water views from outside, but overall, we couldn't have been more comfortable or pleased with our lodging and the service we received.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything worked and was very clean. Would absolutely stay there again.
This property was exactly as pictured online. Upon arrival we were met by the owner and given a complete tour of the home. It was exceptionally clean and well stocked with everything you would need for a weekend away from home. We had rented the home for the weekend for our family and friends to stay and celebrate the wedding of our son - who was married at Linden Place. We were able to entertain other family and friends on the beautiful property outside. Walker's Cove is an amazing property and we look forward to returning again some weekend.
Myself and my 10 college girlfriends visited this house for our first (to be annual) Getaway Weekend. We happen to have graduated from the local, Roger Williams Univ., so the location of this house could not have been more perfect. It is walkable to downtown Bristol, or even better a nice bike ride or even a run along the water. The house itself is beautiful, and well stocked with everything that you need to have a comfortable stay with all of the conveniences of being at home. The yard is a great size, and it's in a lovely setting to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings of the seaside New England Town. This house was perfect for a group of girls, but would also be a great location for a few couples, and their families, or even for a wedding party (it would be a very pretty place for a bride to get ready!)
The Walkers Landing owners, Pam specifically, were great to work with, and completely accommodating and helpful.
If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a quiet town that has great shops and local restaurants, as well as a rich history and great atmosphere, then this house is for you!
We plan to go back again next year!
Walker's Landing looks plain enough from the exterior but once inside this B and B was full of surprising touches that made our stay memorable. The rooms were beautifully furnished, the linens were fine, the kitchen was modern, the sitting room was spacious and the owners, though not in residence, made themselves available when needed. The grounds are lovely and the location near the sea and the bike trail worked for us. Having the ability to walk in the historic village and to restaurants made our visit peaceful and relaxing. This is a hidden gem. There's no sign out front to draw attention, so it might easily be overlooked. It's a great place to rent by the week or weekend if you bring a crowd since there are 4 bedrooms and a kitchen big enough to accommodate multiple cooks. We will be back and next time, with friends.
On a deep-water harbor, Bristol, RI is a hidden gem and historical treasure. The home of the famous Herreshoff boat yards, the town boasts a host of marine activities from sailing and kayaking to swimming and fishing. In between Newport and Providence and only 60 miles from Boston, Bristol hosts the oldest 4th of July celebration in America. Visit Linden Place, built by slave ship captains, Mount Hope Farm, the site of Wampanoag Chief King Philip's 'chair', Herreshoff Marine Museum and Blithewold Mansion and Gardens. Dine at one of the many restaurants, shop, bike on the 25-mile waterside bike path, explore, relax and enjoy a small town that is almost lost in time.
