Recent Newport reviews
chilly on the outside, but warm and toasty on the inside
"We couldn't have wanted anything more... Our 3 day stay during one of the coldest snaps of November was most enjoyable... Everything was there for us, from the well-stocked kitchen to the fluffiest, most comfortable beds... The views from this home, and access to the State Park were more than perfect... the dining room chandelier, the harvest table, the open concept of the living room, the family furnishings from long ago... Everything was meticulously well thought out to make your guests so comfortable. One wanted to meet the family and hear all the stories!! Thank you for one of our most memorable stays..."

"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!"

"Kathy's house has everything we could ask for in a vacation home. Pet friendly for our two labs (and pet-convenient, with the breezeway and large fenced backyard), cozy with cute decor, clean, and in a lovely neighborhood. Our first walk with the pups around the neighborhood, I was in awe - so many beautiful historical homes - I felt like I'd stepped back in time! It is just about a mile walk to Barrister's Wharf, which for us was not a problem at all. It was nice to be out of the immediate hustle and bustle of the Thames Street area, but very close if you did want to participate. Kathy provides cable and internet, which was definitely nice to have on the rainy Sunday we experienced. There is also a washer/dryer (in the basement), ironing board, 2 well-functioning window AC units sheets/towels/blankets, and dishware/cookware. There are no toiletries (e.g. shampoo, etc) so just remember to bring your own. Kathy's house is just wonderful (thank you again for sharing it with us!) and we are so excited for our next visit!"

"We stayed in the attached carriage house (pictured). This place had plenty of room for our family of four. The master bedroom is spacious, and the smaller second and third bedrooms are great for kids. The proper dining area is great for eating in. We are repeat vacationers to the area, and have stayed at other rentals in Middletown. Not many other houses in the same price range have this much space. It's also perfectly located, central to all points of interest in Newport. As mentioned in the other review, 1.5 miles to 1st beach and Cliff Walk makes for a great morning run. 1 mile the other way to Ma's Donuts and Newport Creamery is great for fattening back up. It's a 10 minute drive to the family friendly 3rd beach, and less than 10 minutes to downtown Newport. We had a great time here, and the owners are very gracious and accommodating."
