Property description

We are booked for the 2016 season ! Reserve your vacation for next year!

7 nite weekly minimum rental in July & August, may be willing to do shorter term. Please email with dates & # of guests.

**** Friday check in - Friday check out - for weeks in July & August ****

Rates DO depend on # of people in party.

VRBO has recently (February 15, 2016) added a Service Fee. We receive none of that Service Fee. We accept payment directly through PayPal; and we will glad accept a personal check, so long as it has time to clear prior to arrival. Inquire as usual through the website here, but if the service & insurance fees are quoted in your price, they will be waived for your final quote, which I will send you directly. Thank you

Also -Due to the new "hotel tax" of 8% on vacation rentals by the State of RI, we have kept 2016 rates the same as last year, to try to ease the burden of this new tax. We are also willing to work with you on your pricing, if at all possible.


ELLERY HOUSE is a charming and beautifully maintained, 1700 sq-ft Summer Beach House. With 3+ bedrooms and 2 baths, it sleeps 7 - 8 comfortably. More with pull outs. Pets and children are always welcome.

In the heart of lovely Easton's Point, Ellery House is an easy 3-block walk to First(Eastons)& Second (Sachuest) beaches. Located in Middletown, on the Newport/Middletown line, this cozy home is about a half-mile to town and all the fun activities of Newport. Numerous excellent restaurants are within walking distance as well. Ask me for recommendations! Maps are provided to area attractions. Sachuest Point National Wildlife refuge is a mile from our home.

This Cape-style home has been newly refurbished with fresh paint in many rooms, bathroom renovations, brand new kitchen, granite counter tops, new stove, & dishwasher, new washer and dryer. There is plenty of off-street parking, a private back yard with fenced patio (for people & your pet!), grille, and an outdoor hot & cold shower. Most rooms have cable television and air conditioning. The back yard/patio is securely fenced for the safety of your children or the family dog. The 3rd bedroom can double as a playroom.

Available late June, & all of July and August - there is a weekly minimum rental. Check in is Fri 4pm, check out the following Fri 10am. 10% discounts are available for full-month rentals. Please see the calendar for current availability. Vacation homes in our area rent quickly during the high season; I recommend you finalize your reservation no later than early May.

** WEEKEND ONLY RENTALS - we may be willing to do a large party for a weekend in July or Aug. Please contact for pricing details.

We have had great success with wedding parties and family vacations. My guests have been very pleased; references are available upon request.

Property is sometimes owner occupied. You may occasionally run into us or our 3 very friendly Labs, in the back yard/patio area, or in & out of the driveway, but overall, your stay in the main house is very private.

50% deposit due upon booking & contract signature. We take checks, cash or credit card/checking via PayPal. If you use PayPal, there is a 3% service charge added on.

No daily housekeeping provided. Once you are here, it's all yours. (lawn & garbage service is provided). Pillows, blankets, & comforters are supplied, but sheets & towels are to be supplied by tenants. There is an $125 optional linen fee if you would prefer us to provide the linen service. There is a mandatory $150 cleaning fee upon check-out. Pets welcome with prior permission & pet fee of $125, as well as a damage deposit of $600. We are a NON-smoking property, but you may smoke outside. If interior of house smells of smoke, your damage deposit WILL be retained.

*Please note: Off season, the house is owner occupied with 3 dogs. Also, some guests do bring their pets, & although house is thoroughly & professionally cleaned & vacuumed between parties, if you have serious pet allergy issues, Ellery House may not be the best choice for you.
