"My husband and I spent a very relaxing seven weeks in this beautiful house . As others have mentioned, it is in a very quiet neighborhood .The house itself lends itself to privacy and the fenced in yard is ideal for children or grandchildren The house itself is spacious ,bright and open,and we spent many quiet hours in the screened in sunroom reading and listening to the sounds of lovely birds and watching little rabbits scamper by. Perfect for entertaining, we were able to spend time with our family and friends who live in Rhode Island. Everyone was quite impressed by the house.Well equipped ,it was fun to have cookouts and take long walks on the beach. It is also walking distance to nearby stores and restaurants and a local church An ideal location, it is close to beautiful beaches ,Jamestown ,Newport, Block Island, and nearby Mystic Seaport. We do hope that we are able to stay again. By the way, central air conditioning is a great plus and the owners live very close by and are happy to solve any everyday issues that may occur."

"We just spent a week on BI in this wonderful old house (3 adults, 3 teenagers). It was so comfortable, just like being at home in my own house, but with the benefit of being on the island. We biked and walked to town daily, did drive to the beach (Scotch) because of coolers and what-not. The yard is huge, gorgeous and private. If you're looking for casual and comfortable, this is a great rental. We would definitely stay here again."

"We had such a wonderful visit to RI and staying at this home was truly one of the brightest highlights! We found EVERYTHING we could possibly need there, including peace and quiet. A true home away from home kind of vacation! The owners were most helpful and responsive both before, during, and after our stay and made fast return of our deposit. The hosts also own the beautiful home behind this one but it was not occupied during our time there; we had the utmost privacy during our end of September stay and felt like we were the only ones in town.
Shelter Harbor is a peaceful place during all seasons and the dock is just a few minutes walk away. Shelter Harbor Inn & Restaurant is also within walking distance and is open 365 days a year, a real treat for those who want to stay close to home for a meal out or have an event there while hosting family at this nearby rental house. You will find a fully equipped kitchen at the home though so if you love to cook this is an optimal rental!
There are many wonderful adventures to be had for all within driving distance. Judith Point is just up Rte 1 where you can find fresh seafood and catch the ferry to Block Island. Historic Newport is about an hour's drive away over the beautiful bridges and offers shopping and day activities for everyone. ** If you head north of Rte 1 be sure to stop in on PATTICAKES on Kingstown Road in Wakefield for the best desserts of your life!!
You'll also find gas stations, restaurants and other conveniences like Stop & Shop grocery store and Walmart right down the road off Rte 1 (south of house) and popular public beaches/attractions like Watch Hill and Misquamicut Beach off Rte 1A past beautiful New England style stone walls and gorgeous beachfront houses. Downtown Providence, RI also offers day trips galore if you want to take the trip north into the state, and Leaf Peepers will be delighted with a drive through nearby CT via Waterford Rd or Rte 78.
Many thanks to the owners for considering all the details to make our stay truly comfortable! We will definitely stay there again on our next adventure to New England and would gladly welcome the hosts in our home! Good people and a good place :)"

"We stayed in this great cottage during the Naval War College's Graduation. There were 4 of us and it was perfect. The kitchen was very nice and spacious and we used the grill outside since the weather was so great. Every morning was spent on the porch and we made the easy walk down to the beach a few times!"
