Leave your cars in the driveway and enjoy our beautiful city on foot. We are steps off Thames St. and walking distance to all that Newport has to offer - shopping, dining, museums, mansions, Salve Regina, the NY and Ida Lewis yacht clubs, gorgeous beaches and parks/playgrounds for the little ones. Our classic two story, 3 bedroom home was completely refinished in 2017 with our guests in mind! The airy downstairs offers a bright, open-concept kitchen/dining room/living room that flows to alfresco dining in a private, quiet, well landscaped yard with brick patio/grill. Listen to your favorite music on bluetooth speakers throughout the house or watch the world go by while sitting on the front porch. Upstairs you will have a restful night in one of our two well-appointed, air conditioned guest rooms with their own bath or in the master bedroom with its own ensuite bath and flat screen TV. And if 3 baths aren't enough for you, treat yourself to a private outdoor shower after a day at the beach!

About Nancy Morton
Phil and I are excited to finally own our dream home in Newport, RI. We summer elsewhere in RI and want to share our home during the Summer months with others looking to explore and vacation in Newport. We are close by if the need arises and know you will love our home and fantastic city!
Nancy Morton purchased this House in 2017
Why Nancy Morton chose Fifth Ward
Our home is in the heart of Newport and all it has to offer. Parking on season can be a challenge in Newport but not when you stay with us. Leave your cars in our driveway and explore the city on foot. Our home has been completely renovated both inside and out with all new bathrooms and kitchen so you have a sparkling new house with the charm of a classic Newport home - the best of both worlds!
What makes this House unique
Our house is in the 5th Ward neighborhood of Newport with many "old time" Newporters as neighbors so you feel like you belong immediately. There is a fantastic park around the corner as well as bay beaches that are much less crowded than the public beaches making this a perfect location for your visit.

Perfect location for a girls weekend!
The home has is the perfect location for a weekend in Newport! Walkable to several shops, restaurants and downtown. This home is beautifully decorated and clean. Outdoor patio is a bonus. I will definitely be coming back and staying here again.
Nancy's home was as advertised. Great location and very comfortable. Nancy was very responsive and great with promptly answering any questions we had. I would definitely recommend!
Carefree in Newport!!
Absolutely delightful "home away from home". Our "hostess/owner" had provided a wonderful book of tips about the home and area. She was also quick to respond with answers to any questions that we had. Would stay there again!!
Thank you Ann - we are so happy that you felt like it was a "home away from home" as that is what we strive for. Also glad you enjoyed the recommendations in the guidebook. We hope you will be back again!
Lovely home, location, and host
The property looks exactly as it does in the pictures. It's a beautifully remodeled home with excellent amenities and within walking distance to downtown Newport. Nancy is a wonderful host and quick to respond to emails/texts. Thank you Nancy for letting us use your home and for a lovely weekend in Newport!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and that the location worked out well for you. It was a pleasure hosting you and your friends and hope to see you back in Newport again!
Really Great House
Nancy-your home is beautiful and true to all the pictures you have posted here. We had such a great time, and can't wait to come back! Thank you for being so accommodating and easy to reach as well. House is totally renovated and spotless. The location is perfect in regards to walking to Bellevue or Thames, or just as easy to drive as well. We also had a blast at the seafood festival! Nancy even stocked us with coffee, and we just found it to be so comfortable ~your notebook was a great help in regards to everything at your home and also that Newport has to offer. I would highly recommend this beautiful spot, no matter what time of year. Our only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer. Best to you and your husband-thank you!
Mary, It was so nice having you for your birthday celebration! We are so pleased that you enjoyed our home so much. It really is a great place to get together and relax with friends. Next time you will have to extend your stay so you can take advantage of all that Newport has to offer.
Beautiful and comfortable!
We had a wonderful stay at this charming house in the heart of Newport. The house has been meticulously renovated with high end finishings throughout. The kitchen and dining room are beautifully appointed, and there is a lovely backyard area perfect for outdoor dining. The upstairs has 3 nice sized bedrooms and 2 full baths that are very nicely done. The location is ideal for anything you want to do in Newport. You can easily walk to Thames st which has shops and good restaurants and even to Bowens wharf which is a popular tourist area. We drove to the mansions, but you can walk to those as well. The Breakers is about a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk. I highly recommend this lovely house. The owners are very responsive and helpful with any questions you may have. You wont be disappointed!
Rachel, Thanks so much for the great review. The house is in a fantastic location to enjoy all Newport has to offer - wonderful dining, shopping and tourist attractions are all nearby. We work hard to make sure that our guests enjoy their stay with us so I am glad you felt at home. Please come back and visit us any time as you were great guests!
