  • 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."

  • A Rhode Island/South County gem...

    "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..."

  • A Week in Heaven

    "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."

  • Comfortable, charming, a short walk to the water and good eats in Jamestown!

    "I recently spent a long weekend here with my husband, kids, and dog. We all enjoyed the cottage. It was roomy enough for all of us to have our own space but small enough for us to spend time together, too. The expansive one-level layout worked well. The cottage is charming with its intentional antique character. It has the feel of an older era, but with modern amenities like flat screen tv, cable/Internet, and updated appliances in the kitchen. The decor is tasteful and a treat for art enthusiasts. Our kids had a lot of fun playing outdoors in the large yard. There is a fire pit, great for storytelling! The front porch was a nice place to sit and relax. Even our dog had a great time, convinced the bucket of sticks for the fireplace was actually a collection of his favorite chew toys. We're so glad we could bring our dog along on this family get-a-way! We enjoyed walks into town and short drives to some of our favorite locations in Narragansett and Newport. Jamestown was the perfect place for us to stay. We loved being in the sea-side town, able to walk to shops and dining, without the big crowds we found in Newport. There were plenty of things around town to keep us busy, and in our down time, the cottage was very relaxing. We even found a great playground near the cottage that our kids loved, just across the street from a bakery in town. We liked having a kitchen for cooking a few meals, but we found yummy options for breakfast/lunch/dinner all around town, for all budgets. We also found plenty of kid friendly meal options in town, too. This cottage worked with our two kids, ages 5&8. The kids slept on a couch and a build-in window seat. It worked out, but our privacy was limited. While it was nice for the whole family, I think this cottage would also be nice for a couple on a romantic getaway."
