"My family and I stayed at Periscope in June. We needed a place that could accommodate an extended family group. The house was perfect. There was ample space to afford everyone privacy. Our group totaled eight, but there was room for more. It worked well for the children, the youngest being three, as well as the seniors in our group. There are three full bathrooms-one with a bathtub and two with showers. We never ran out of hot water and the pressure was great.
The house is well appointed with plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. We cooked and served meals for all of us and friends who were staying near by. There is a large BBQ if you want to cook out. There is a washer and dryer and clothes line, so you can pack lighter when you travel.
The house and grounds are lovely. The plantings are amazing and a wide variety of birds visit the feeders outside the kitchen window. Th large wrap around porch has room to eat out, sit and relax, or for the children to play. From the porch you have a sweeping view down to the water. There is a dock and we spent a considerable time enjoying that setting. Inside you will countless books to read, a large library of DVD's, games and toys.
If you need granite and stainless steel or want a place to throw wild parties, this place isn't for you. If you want a tranquil setting for a perfect seaside vacation, Periscope is perfect. The photos give a very accurate view of the house.
Periscope is the kind of house you see in pictures and movies and wonder what it would be like to live there.
On the practical side, the owners are very easy to work with. A cleaning crew came and polished up while we were staying there. The beaches were close by, the pizza man delivers, and we could find anything we needed in town. This property is perfect for lazy days or as a base to enjoy the beaches and numerous attractions in the area."

"Our 2015 family reunion would not have been so successful if it were not for this gorgeous, spacious, clean property. We had room for our whole clan and then some! The owner of the property was accommodating, patient with all my questions, and just a pleasure to work with. It is seconds from the ocean and the breeze that hits the front porch of the home is marvelous! The home is well maintained with modern features. We felt right at home and lacked for nothing. The owner even left us a welcome letter and treats! The entire experience exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a home away from home, this is this place."

"Came for a family wedding with a party of 8 and ended up falling in love with a home and the town of Bristol! The mushroom was in a magical setting surrounded by beautiful foliage. The house was very private and had everything you could need. Beds were very comfortable, plenty of towels, the fireplace was great for the one cold night we were there. Beautiful views from the house and backyard. The beach was amazing, we walked every morning each way and it was so peaceful. Lots of things for kids to do and explore, found lots of sea glass. The town of bristol was very close and was the perfect New England town. The Beehive cafe is a must!!! Owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with. We didn't want to leave, and will definitely be visiting again!!"

"We recently stayed here with our 4 kids and it was perfect. Walking distance to beaches, restaurants and cliff walk. Quick drive to downtown Newport, everything you need is within minutes of the cottage. There's a nice yard my kids could run around in. Beth and Dave were fantastic, easy to work with, very accommodating and very sweet people! We have absolutely no complaints about anything and have already started talking about going back next summer."
