About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath in downtown Newport

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 Newport

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.

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Really Great House

  • 5 of 5

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!

Pristine home within walking distance to all local spots in Newport!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nancy for being so gracious and accommodating!

We couldn't have chosen a more perfect house for our last vacation of the summer. The house is light, bright, airy and has all amenities needed and pristinely kept! It is the perfect size for a family with children. With its many windows, I especially loved the cross breeze in the house. The kitchen is a great entertaining spot with bluetooth music throughout. The outdoor shower is perfect for your sandy little munchkins. Not to mention, close to a local market just steps away and amazing restaurants. Two of our favorite are Scales and Shells and a new one we love ...Mama Luisas! Great time! I highly recommend! Best, The Aquilas

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for almost the entire summer (2017) and we absolutely loved it. The house is even better than the pictures on the website and the location is prime walking distance to everything Newport has to offer. Phil and Nancy do a great job at making sure everything is organized and easy to find. They keep a binder with easy to find instructions, suggestions and recommendations for the area, and are very accessible if any additional questions arise. If our schedule permits, this house will be off the market next summer. That's how much we love it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind words, Lamia. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home this summer. It was a pleasure hosting you and hope your schedule allows you to come back to Newport next summer as we would love to have you back for the summer next year! Phil and Nancy
