About Vivi Valentine & William Hutchinson

I always had a dream of living on a farm. We were lucky to be able to buy this old farm and be able to bring it back to life in the last few years. Adding animals and clearing pastures, fixing up the old farmhouse and the stone walls. It is a magical place in the middle of a magical island.

Vivi Valentine & William Hutchinson purchased this house in 2009

Why Vivi Valentine & William Hutchinson chose Jamestown (Conanicut Island)

Because we loved the idea of bringing our kids up in this environment and we also were very interested in protecting this property.

What makes this house unique

The location! You can walk to town, to the beach, and to a ferry that can take you to Newport.

Its a peaceful farm setting in the middle of a beautiful summer destination. Jamestown is a lovely little town, the village is a 10 minute or less walk from the farm and sits on Conanicut Island which is right in the middle of the spectacular Narragansett Bay, Newport is a short ferry ride or drive away! It's a 2 1/2 mile drive from the farm, or you can take the ferry from downtown Jamestown. Jamestown has some very nice restaurants, and bakeries. The Jamestown ARTS Center has summer camps for kids, art classes for adults, and lots of great programs and events throughout the year. There are also other summer camps for kids here; Save The Bay summer camps, sailing camp with the Conanicut Island Sailing Foundation, kayak and paddle board rentals, etc...

There are fabulous restaurants in Jamestown and Newport, The Tennis Hall of Fame, the amazing Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals, lots of other great music, festivals and activities. Sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, beaches, shopping, surfing, etc...

Beautiful historic home in secluded surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous and comfortable and we had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the farm of Vivi and Hutch, who were very attentive and generous hosts. It was the perfect place for our family reunion. The children loved visiting the animals and having plenty of room to run and play outside. The open and updated kitchen and living area was ideal for preparing and sharing meals together. The beach and the center of Jamestown are within walking distance. You can catch a ferry to Newport. We especially loved the sounds of the wind blowing in the trees, the rooster, the birds. Thank you and we hope to come back.

Perfect Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The updated kitchen was wonderful to cook in and the rest of the historic house is charming and cozy. Highly recommend this house for larger groups. The only thing to keep in mind is the upstairs bathroom is connected to one of the bedrooms.

Best Weekend Ever

  • 5 of 5

Came here on a girls trip. While it may have rained for the majority of the weekend, that didn't stop us from having a blast. The house is gorgeous and the hosts are the best! So kind and friendly. I will definitely come back!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Vivi and Hutch were great hosts! The property is absolutely stunning, down a long dirt road in the middle of woods. The farm house is a great combination of old world with modern amenities (i.e updated bathrooms and kitchen). I would highly recommend this place to families with younger kids as the farm house backs right up to farm pen with donkeys, goats, sheep and chickens! Vivi was even kind enough to bring us fresh eggs one morning that were fabulous. These owners live on the property and want to get to know everyone that stays over. They take great pride in there home and if you are lucky to stay there respect the property and rules of the farm!
