  • Wonderful House in Jamestown... Highly Recommend

    "We decided last minute to book a family get away to RI. Being that we live in Southern CT we didn't want to travel to far so we decided on RI. Have never been to Jamestown before we didn't know what to expect. Boy were we pleasantly surprised.... Jamestown is a very quaint beach town with wonderful sites to see and great restaurants and beaches. It offers close proximity to the other RI towns but without the crowds. You can pop into Newport to shop, eat or go to the beach and then leave to peace and quiet. Being that I work in NYC on a daily basis escaping the noise and the crowds is important to me. Now on to the house.... It is the perfect beach getaway. We have 2 boys (1 and 2.5 years old)... Very active and adventurous. The house was perfect for them. There is a nice sized back yard with a play set. My oldest would spend hours out there playing. The best part of the house is it's proximity to Mackerel Cove Beach (2 min walk). Katherine has an ATW - all terrain wagon (which tenants can use) so you load it up with all your beach gear and two minutes later your feet are in the ocean. Traveling with young children is never easy so having these resources available make it a bit easier. I cannot not also say enough good things about Mackerel Cove Beach. It's on a cove so the waves aren't too big. Perfect for young swimmers to get their water time to swim or hunt shells. The best part about it is that it is never overly crowded. I was there last week in Aug (prime time) and the beach was never too busy. Lastly being that the house is so close to the beach you get a cool breeze when sitting on the covered porch. It was never to hot or humid with the fresh ocean air blowing gently by the house. I will be planning another return to this house as it is the perfect family getaway."

  • Beautiful and spacious home; gracious owners.

    "Jane and Jason's home was 'our' home for a few days and a long awaited family reunion. It truly did feel like home! From the loving and thoughtful touches to the great communication with the owners...from the great yard where my sons and grandsons played Thanksgiving games of football...from the overall cleanliness, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and ample area which allowed for both privacy and community gathering…we had a fantastic time. The home is set up with near equal living areas on each floor, which worked well for us. We had some late sleepers and some early risers and other diverse needs- it allowed us to accommodate all including the little ones very nicely. The Charlestown beach was just moments away; even in November, we had great fun running from the waves, collecting sea rocks and shells and even catching an early morning sunrise. We traveled into Newport one day to experience the Cliff Walk and other sites of interest and historic significance; we found it to be an easy half hour or so drive and we highly recommend it! Shopping was convenient with village stores a very short distance, and bigger stores for major shopping were an easy 10/15 minute car ride. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. We enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement, and the availability of sports balls and even bikes. We had a bit of apprehension renting from an independent home owner though the Homeaway site – we’ve only done it one time before. We took comfort from the fact that Jason and Jane had been listed here for a number of years, with well-spaced and very positive reviews. Our actual dealings with them were, from start to finish, outstanding. Their hospitality, generosity and integrity made it feel very easy and safe and indeed it was just that.Thank you to both for a truly great experience."

  • Exceptional Experience

    "Staying at this beautifully restored Victorian home was an awesome experience. It is even more charming in person and has everything you would need at your fingertips. The house is conveniently located with easy access to downtown, the harbor and the mansions and is situated on a lovely, quiet residential street. There is plenty of room for family gatherings - there were 8 of us - and lots of delightful nooks and crannies in which to find some personal space The owner, John is so accommodating and made our long weekend stay a pleasure. We are looking forward to a return trip next year."

Charlestown Travel Tips

Check out Charlestown Rentals This Vacation

As you plan Rhode Island travel, you should seriously consider Charlestown rentals for your next lodging solution. Charlestown is a small coastal town that is easily accessible by plane and car. There is plenty to do within the town and much of it is located near most Charlestown rentals. The town, however, is spread out so you will definitely want to book a rental car. The beaches are usually accessed by bike most easily, so if you are thinking of booking Charlestown lodging near the beaches, you may want to bring your bike.

Great Beaches near Charlestown Lodging

In the summer, Charlestown rentals are great ways to sneak out to the beach and soak up the sun. The whole family will love this type of Rhode Island travel; an escape from work and school is always welcome. Each beach in town has varying levels of surf, but each is truly beautiful so do not forget the sunscreen. While most beaches in town are open to the public, do check the signs as a few are private beaches for residents only.

Festival Fun and Charleston Rentals

During the second week of August, Charlestown hosts its annual Seafood Festival which can be an exciting treat for you and the kids. The festival takes place in Ninigret Park which is quite close to many Charleston lodging accommodations. Visit the festival for arts and crafts, seafood, music, and rides. For music-lovers staying in Charlestown rentals, the Ocean State Reggae Festival is held in Ninigret Park during July.

Rhode Island Travel for Day Trips

Because the state is so small, Rhode Island travel is quite easy. If during your stay at Charlestown lodging you want to get away, think about heading over to Block Island which is about 12 miles off the mainland. It is accessible by ferry and home to the National Wildlife Refuge. You can spend the day swimming, wandering through the shops, or touring the area.
