This property has several apartments right in the middle of historic downtown Bristol - just walk to everything. Start the day with a Nespresso coffee right from your own kitchen or walk to Angelina's coffee shop, or Bristol Bagels to hear the local gossip and pick up your newspaper. Head back to Leonard Place to enjoy sitting on the beautiful front porch with friends and watch the world go by. Then do some antiquing, or check out the Herreshoff (Shipbuilders of the America's Cup yachts) Museum, or stroll to Linden Place or visit the beautiful arboretum at Blithewold. Visit the beaches or shop in Newport, or any of the galleries or historic sites in town, or picnic at expansive Colt State Park on the water and rent a kayak. There are many fine restaurants to choose from; Cafe Le Central, Bristol Oyster House, Red Lefson's and Christian's, to name a few. Watch amazing sunsets over the water looking out to Popasquash Point on Narrangasett Bay. Chart a sail. You can even go shellfishing or clamming and steam up your finds in the well-equipped kitchen. Entertain friends. Head out to Prudence Island to see the wildlife. Gather together on the lawn in the large side yard or gather on the front porch for cocktails. Then head out to dinner, or cook in the well-equipped kitchens. There are so many things to do right here, that at the end of the day you will really enjoy collapsing into the soft, comfortable beds with soft cotton sheets in the calming blue bedrooms after watching a movie on the large screen tv.

Convenient downtown accommodations
The three units we rented for 10 adults in town for a wedding were clean, comfortable, conveniently situated and a perfect fit for our group’s needs. Marianne and Tom were extremely helpful and as available as needed over the course of our party’s staggered arrival. I would definitely aim to rent Leonard Place again should I find myself returning to Bristol in the future!
