Wonderful Cottage & Exceptional Owner
Wonderful Cottage & Exceptional Owner
Our family - five adults - rented Annlee's beautiful cottage as a home base for our big pilgrimage to the Newport Folk Festival. The cottage was wonderful; clean, beautiful, and well-appointed. There is everything you might need during your stay, including bicycles and to-go coffee cups! The blue hydrangeas on the property were really showing off & we even spotted a quite healthy groundhog while sipping our morning coffee. A truly delightful cottage. We did venture around the island via bicycle. We spent a terrific few hours at the Beavertail Lighthouse & enjoyed the small town island life. Most of our time, however, was spent in Newport. We couldn't resist going to La Maison de Coco everyday for the best scones & coffee. We also loved the White Horse Tavern & Pour Judgement for afternoon cocktails & appetizers. Jamestown & Newport were enchanting. I would highly recommend the Windward Cottage because of its owner, Annlee. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was welcoming, accommodating, and clearly invested in our comfort during our stay. I didn't doubt our accommodations prior to our departure, in part, because of Annlee's attentiveness during the planning process. Thanks much, Annlee! Aimee Indianapolis, Indiana

A Hidden Gem in Rhode Island
A Hidden Gem in Rhode Island
We just returned from our second week long summer stay at Windward Cottage. This house is a hidden gem in Jamestown on a beautiful, tranquil and undisturbed island between Narragansett and Newport. Our 7 and 10 year olds loved Jamestown and never ran out activities, from spending picture perfect days at Mackerel Cove town beach (and visiting the Del's Lemonade truck!), climbing the rocky cliffs of Beavertail, sunsets on Sunset Beach, visiting the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and surfing at Narragansett town beach. The food was extraordinary, cooking our own lobsters, fresh bread from Hearth Bakery, and Chopmist Charlies in town. The owner is so thoughtful and has impeccable taste. She always pays attention to the details and was so personally attentive to our needs even while being in Colorado. We love Windward Cottage and recommend it and the region for anyone seeking peace and relaxation without the crowds of Cape Cod or even Newport, which is just a ferry away. We hope to be back again soon for another stay!

Windward cottage was the perfect retreat. Perfect size for us and our toddler. The house is well-put together with everything you need. It's also in the perfect location - close enough to the town of Jamestown and Newport is easily accessible with the bridge close by - but just far enough away to escape to the quiet. The entire area is beautiful with tons to do. The owner was attentive and even the neighbors were helpful and very friendly. We will definitely be going back for an escape from every day life.

We had a wonderful week at Windward Cottage. The home was immaculate and well appointed, the beds very comfortable and the owner very accommodating. The location was perfect for us - close proximity to Newport and the big wave beaches at Narragansett. Jamestown is a gorgeous, quiet place.

My family had a gorgeous week at the Windward Cottage on Jamestown Island! The cottage is lovely, quiet, immaculate, and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the chaise or at the table on the wrap-around porch, being surrounded by the New England-style stacked stone wall and beautiful gardens, and the ocean across the street. A short drive into town was fun for dinner and drinks and great music and dancing at the Narragansett Cafe on Friday and Saturday nights; Beavertail lighthouse at the other end of the island was the perfect spot for a picnic and watch the sailboats float on by; and the jaunt over the Newport bridge in minutes brought us antiquing, touring the mansions, the U.S. Tennis Hall of Fame, and fabulous restaurants and beaches! Can't wait to go back next summer! Absolutely the most charming and adorable home we have ever rented!

My family enjoyed a wonderful week at this charming home. Annlee went out of her way to answer questions and help make our stay perfect. The home is immaculate and the king bed is to die for! A bonus was Annlee's charming neighbor who shared lots of information about the area with us and made the stay more special. We especially enjoyed the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, SLice of Heaven Restaurant in Jamestown, Beavertail Lighthouse and the small but very interesting fire fighter's museum in Jamestown.

We had a wonderful week in Windward Cottage. Beautifully furnished and comfortable. Great kitchen and love the wrap around porch. Spent time in Newport just over the bridge.

We recently returned from an outstanding week at Windward Cottage. The house is beautiful, with just a short walk to the ocean waters with gorgeous views. The property was well maintained, with a wrap around porch and open back yard for the kids to let off some steam. Annlee had gone out of her way to make us feel comfortable, and for that, we were very grateful. We would highly recommend this home to anyone who can appreciate the serenity of Jamestown and the surrounding sights, seafood and salty air. We hope to return in the near future!

We spent a lovely week in windward cottage. The house was comfortable, practical and the garden very charming. Everything seemed to have been so well planned and we had everything we needed. The owner was hospitable and went out of her way to help us have a nice vacation. We could get to the center of Jamestown by car very quickly and trips to Newport were also extremely easy. Our stay was just perfect. I would stay there again. Melissa
