This downtown luxury summer cottage is perfectly located on a historic side street; just steps from Newport's best shopping, restaurants and nightlife on Thames Street, and minutes from the beaches. A perfect alternative to a hotel or B&B, and great for those in town for a long weekend or get-away week. The cottage is fully stocked with clean linens and towels, and the other small amenities that will make it feel like your own home by the sea. And with central air throughout the house, the hot and humid days of summer will stay outside by the beach where they belong.
Although we have the rare luxury of two off-street parking spots, there's no need for a car; the mansions, the harborside, restaurants, cafes, and more are all within walking distance. You can even walk to the water taxi pier, which makes frequent stops all along the downtown waterfront.
You will feel like a well appointed host in the gourmet kitchen, with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a high top barstools. Enjoy your time with friends around the beautiful beachwood dining room table, which comfortably seats 8.
We have two bedrooms upstairs with a full bath- one master with a queen bed, and the other has two twins, which can easily be pushed together for a couple. Downstairs is an open floor plan kitchen, living room, dining room, and half bath. There are sliding glass doors out to the backyard, with grill for summer bbqs. The living room is a perfect place to relax, with three couches, (one pull out), flat screen tv, and a large coffee table. The house sleeps 4-6 adults comfortably.

About the owner: I'm a local Newporter and avid beach goer. I'm happy to give tips on where to go and what to do to get the most out of your trip to our beautiful City-by-the-Sea.
Why the Owner Chose Newport: Newport is notorious for its amazing waterfront restaurants, shopping, nightlife....AND impossible parking in all of the areas you want to be in.
This property is in the heart of all of the action, so once you arrive, you can park the car and enjoy it all, steps away. Despite it's proximity to Thames Street, our street is quiet and peaceful, so you can fully relax in this light-filled home.
