About the property

This private ocean front property is situated on 2 acres of an 8 acre family compound. There are amazing, unobstructed ocean views, a private swimming cove, and room for multiple families. This completely charming 300 year old Cape has ship's timbers for its floors and ceilings and has been recently renovated. There is swimming & fishing right from the property, or it's a short walk to both Easton's & 2nd Beaches. Downtown Newport, a 5 minute drive, can be close enough or feel far away. A large Studio room with its own kitchen and bath can accommodate kids, teens & cousins. Even the outdoor shower has a killer view.

About Jones Toland

Our Grandparents bought the big white house with 8 acres on the water right before World War II and our family has been coming here to 'Whetstone' every summer ever since. Our cousins own the other 3 neighboring houses; ours is 'The Little House' in the center of this photo on the Family compound. There's no better place to spend time with family & friends!

Jones Toland purchased this house in 1940

Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently stayed at the Little House for 10 nights for our wedding in Newport and we fell in love with it. We rented the house with our moms, 2 siblings and their spouses, and a nephew. We didn't have the studio rental and still had more than enough room to accommodate all of us. The house is old with beautiful details, but is very well-maintained and clean. It was especially nice to have 3 full bathrooms to share (all were nice and newer)- and the water pressure is good too. The dining room table was perfect for playing games and enjoying the view. The view from the house is absolutely amazing. It's nice and quiet there which was great and very relaxing during our trip. Many days/nights, we found ourselves just hanging out in the chairs outside the house and chatting while looking at the ocean. The kitchen is a bit small but we never had any issues as we cooked out a lot and usually only one or two people were in the kitchen at one time. It was nice to have laundry on property too. My husband and brother really loved the swimming cove and went in every day during our trip. It was also nice to just sit on the rocks and listen the waves hit the rocks. The house comes with everything you could need during your vacation-kitchen is stocked with all pots/pans/dishes, tons of beach and bath towels, board games, books, fans, several chairs outside and a picnic table, and sunscreen, bug spray.

The house is in a great location too. It's on a residential street that is great for evening walks. It's also a longer walk or very short drive to the Easton's Beach area and downtown Newport/Bellevue is probably a 5-10 minute drive. The house is also close to stores, movies etc. in Middletown. It's also a short walk from the house to the beach, which was really convenient.

The family that owns the house was incredibly nice and easy to work with. Jones was great about answering questions unrelated to the house/rental and was always quick to respond to emails/calls. My husband and I cannot wait to stay in the Little House again-maybe for our anniversary next year or for a big family trip one of these days. We had such a great experience there and made so many memories during our trip that we look forward to making the Little House part of our future together!

Great Christmas time on the shore

  • 5 of 5

I was invited to stay with couple friends who rented this house for Christmas. We had a great time. The house has original old charm yet feel very comfortable and cozy. The main house has nice proportion of living/dining room, functional compact kitchen with a lot of gadgets perfect for cooking. The location was spectacular even in winter time, good amount of beach front and large field to play. I hope to go back in summer time where we could swim in the cove which feel like a swimming pool.

Great place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I have rented this place the week of Thanksgiving for the past 2 years and have had a thoroughly pleasant experience here.

We enjoy taking walks along the rocks by the ocean and playing catch with the football on the expansive lawn in front of the house (makes me feel like a Kennedy). On rainy days we watch the waves splash upon the rocks through the large bay window while we remain cozy inside by the fireplace playing UNO. Even in November we enjoy the Cliff Walk and all the shops and restaurants that Newport/Middletown have to offer. We have also participated in the 5 mile Newport Pie Run the past two years.

The owner is very responsive and easy to work with which is a plus. We like it so much we plan on coming back next Thanksgiving.

Spectacular setting. Best view in Newport

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three days in the Little House and couldn't have had a better experience. The house is secluded and set back from the road. The view from the spacious backyard can't be beat. The house is quaint yet spacious, but you won't be spending much time inside. The backyard is enormous and right on the best swimming area in Newport. I can't say enough good things about the house, area or experience of renting.
