Perfect Summer Getaway
"Our group of seven (3 adults, 4 kids ages 16, 15, 10, 8) absolutely loved our week in this house. It is spacious, well-appointed, beautifully decorated, and filled with light. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need, even a big pot for cooking lobsters from nearby Zeke's fish shop. There was a big closet full of games and ample beach towels. The open great room/kitchen is great for hanging out, it is nicely decorated with quality furnishings, but not too fussy for a beach house. We loved the outdoor shower and grill, and the kids had a blast running around the huge backyard while the adults enjoyed drinks from the deck. There are three bedroom and a big bathroom upstairs; the second full bathroom and fourth bedroom are on the main floor. The location is perfect - two blocks to McQuades Grocery and the liquor store, three blocks to downtown including the Slide of Heaven bakery, six blocks to the waterfront and Spinnaker's Ice Cream shop. I would not hesitate to recommend this house and we'll be staying here again next time."

"Our first trip to Newport-- could not have been better. We felt so fortunate to be able to open the front door every evening and call this place "home" during our stay. The beautiful decor and warm colors welcome you in and make it hard to leave. Newport has so much to offer, it was a delight to be able to explore it all on foot from this home's perfect location. Our favorite casual restaurant, Brick Alley, was just around the corner.
Helen is an absolutely delightful host! It is obvious to anyone who gets to stay here, that she takes great pride in maintaining her house and doing everything to make sure her guests feel welcome.
If you are thinking of visiting Newport, think no longer about where to stay-- it doesn't get better than this!"

"This was a great house for 8 women to spend the weekend together! Very clean and comfortable but more importantly it was such a reasonable price for such a great location! I had never visited Newport before and did not know how close/far from everything this would be but we were able to walk everywhere! Beds were comfortable though there are four double beds which was fine for us ladies but I wanted to mention as this could be a problem for some couples used to sleeping on a larger bed for example. All the ladies on our trip were very impressed with the house and I do not doubt all of us would consider the house again if future plans brought any of us back to Newport!"

"Windward Cottage combines more than adequate living space with great outdoor accomodations with its very wide and extensive half wrap around covered porch. We spent a good deal of our time out there with NO MOSQUITOES, at least not at the end of August. Jamestown and Conanicut Island have rich histories dating from the 1630s, the Revolutionary War, but recovered and became a fashionable summer retreat while maintaining a near self supporting country atmosphere. Now with two bridges one can have his and her choices of what to do and explore in addition to the old forts and lighthouses on the island. The cottage offers communal living and kitchen rooms but private bed and bath spaces. A nice lawn surrounds the house in a quiet area of the the North End of the island. The owner could not be more congenial in working with us in the rental process and afterwards."
