Built in 1910, this small cottage is tucked inside a secret garden. A private porch overlooks a yard full of wildflowers, roses, flowering trees and gardens. This poetic home has been used for its gracious light numerous times in product shoots. It has been featured in Rhode Island Magazine and was 'home' for some of the film crew during the filming of Moonrise Kingdom.

Two adults and a child can comfortably sleep in the cottage. The bunkhouse has a pair of twin beds and sleeps 2 adults. If you travel with your pet, there is a fenced yard for a dog, and plenty of sunny windows for a cat.

On a cool night, you will love using the cast iron wood stove with a glass door that you can see from bed or living room! The cottage has a queen size bed and a day bed off the kitchen. The separate bunkhouse has twin beds and a TV. There is room down at the wooded end of the yard to park an RV.

This magical little cottage offers complete privacy. I am available to share all that I love about Jamestown with you during your visit. Please let me know anytime you need to know where to get the best clam roll, how to get there, or what to do on a rainy day.

The cottage and bunkhouse are located in an quiet neighborhood between Shoreby Hill and the golf course. There are lots of beautiful old homes and mature trees here. At one end of the end of the street there is a public golf course overlooking a salt marsh and a bird sanctuary. Heading towards the village, there is a small beach that is perfect for a quick dip on a hot afternoon.

Town is a short walk away where there are plenty of places to keep you busy all day: restaurants, shops, antiques, art center, playground, library and a grocery store. You can catch the Jamestown Newport Ferry at the marina. It runs during the summer and is the prettiest way to get over to Rose Island, Fort Adams and bustling Newport.

Your pet is welcome! Please be aware that bunnies and birds have the run of the yard when you're not here. I have a fenced in area in the yard where your dog can run. Cats should be kept indoors.

I hope you enjoy the peace and tranquility of this quiet, family oriented neighborhood. Please consider the well-being of the neighbors during your visit.

No smoking in the cottage or bunkhouse

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1990

                          About the owner: I am an artist and gardener who grew up in Jamestown. Some of my best qualities for running my vacation rental were earned when I ran a beautiful, upscale inn called The Bard's Inn, in Ashland, OR.

                          Why the Owner Chose Jamestown:
                          Jamestown has been my home since the mid-70's and still feel like a newcomer! This is the best place in the world to live, and I absolutely love my house. Every time I pull into the driveway I feel like I have arrived in paradise. Island life is simple and Jamestown is one of the most beautiful towns going. It is a very community oriented, 'Mayberry' type of hometown with farms, rocky coves, marshland, and a spectacular peninsula that hosts the lighthouse at Beavertail State Park.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Built in 1910, this small cottage is tucked inside a secret garden. The private porch overlooks a large, private yard full of wildflowers, roses, flowering trees and gardens. What's better than having that kind of privacy, where you can walk to town, a little sandy beach and bird sanctuary, all within 10 minutes!
