"A few of my friends and I were looking for a private spacious home for a nice relaxing guys weekend and boy did we hit the jackpot. The house is gigantic including three floors with the top floor being it's own loft, a screened in porch with fireplace, and a gigantic kitchen/living room area for everyone to hang out. The pool wasn't in service yet but that would be just an extra bonus for people who rent during the summer. The house was extremely clean and beautifully furnished upon our arrival. The owner, Elaine, was extremely friendly and helpful each time we talked. I recommend this home to anyone and will definitely be renting again. Newport was 20 mins away by cab as well, which isn't bad at all!!"

"This was my family's third year staying at this lovely Jamestown home. I grew up in Rhode Island and have rented all over New England (Cape Cod , etc) and this location just draws us back..Lovely, bright and airy home with a deck (with outside dining table where we had EVERY meal) and a beautiful lawn fully in view of the Western Passage of Narragansett Bay (stunning sunset every night). Sail and motor, ferries and fishermen..this is a location that you just don't tire of. I always "look around" at other rentals, but have not found anything comparable..Owners are low-key but helpful and responsive..I think anyone would enjoy it..."

"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."

Ideal setting for the perfect New England getaway!
"My husband and I spent two weeks on Jamestown in this adorable, homey apartment. Despite having lived in R.I. for 50 years, we had never spent any time on Jamestown before. We felt very much at home and took advantage of our proximity to Narragansett (go to Twin Willows for their fish n chips), Newport, Little Compton and Providence. Also, spent a day in Boston at the Museum of Fine Arts. The apartment had everything you would need and then some; my husband said that the kitchen was better equipped than ours back home in Florida. We were able to entertain family & friends easily. We had two dinner parties and a ladies' luncheon with 5 friends. The village of Jamestown is within walking distance; we would walk each morning to get the morning paper and a coffee-to-go from the corner market. Everyone we met in town was friendly and welcoming. Some afternoons or evenings, we would walk into town for exercise or burger 'n beers at the Narragansett Café where we also heard great live music (no cover). The desserts from Slice of Heaven wowed our dinner guests. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the neighborhood was quiet. Betsy was easy to work with via e-mail and there were no surprises. Please note that there is a flight of stairs to gain entry to the apt. We are already planning to return. You will not be disappointed."
