Middletown house description

Located on the Newport/Middletown line next to St. George’s School, this sunny two-bedroom, second-floor vacation apartment is within walking distance of First Beach (Easton’s) or Second Beach (Sachuest) and the famous Newport Cliff Walk. An easy walk to popular restaurants and pubs including Johnny’s Atlantic Beach Club, Tickets and Flo’s Clam Shack.

A perfect home base for exploring historic Newport year 'round! There is so much to enjoy, all about a five-minute ride away. Spend the day at the beach, afternoons sightseeing or shopping on Thames Steet, and nights at lively restaurants and clubs on Newport Harbor. Visit one of the many famous mansions open for tours (the Astors’ Beechwood mansion and The Breakers – the grandest of Newport’s summer “cottages”!) or one of the major recreational attractions including Kings Park (live concerts), Brenton Point State Park, (kite flying) and Sail Newport Yachting Center / Fort Adams. A short distance to Newport Slots, Carnegie Abbey and Newport National, known for world-class golfing.

Known as “America’s First Summer Resort,” Newport, Rhode Island, is the home of The International Tennis Hall of Fame, Newport Preservation Society, The Newport Jazz Festival, Music Festival, Folk Festival, and the Newport Film Festival.

And, of course, there's the Newport Winter Festival voted the 'Best Off-Season Event' by Newport Life Magazine's 'Best of Newport' Awards. Traditions here include polo on the beach, seal cruises, live music and ice-skating in downtown Newport.

This vacation rental is perfect for families, and/or couples’ or singles’ getaways. Small pets are okay, with deposit.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: My husband, Ed, and I finally took the plunge - sold our house north of Boston and are now residents of Middletown, RI as of August 2013! We've been married 49 years. We have two children, six grandchildren, one great grandson and two Mini Schnauzers. I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who grew up in Newport and loves to spend time with us when she can.

              Why the Owner Chose Middletown:
              We have been vacationing in Newport for many years and decided it was time to purchase our own 'Seaside Escape'! We thoroughly enjoy all that Newport has to offer. Our children and grandchildren enjoy Newport as much as we do, and we know we will have frequent visitors when we finally do retire!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This sunny apartment is close enough to walk, bike or ride to all of the wonderful activities in and around Newport, including both First and Second Beaches. Located next to St. George's School, this location offers an escape from the crowds and tourists at the end of the day. It has a beautiful yard our renters can enjoy for grilling and relaxing and a deck/balcony off the master bedroom.
