GARDEN COTTAGE

Our GARDEN COTTAGE, a natural shingle free-standing structure, cozy and private, is in the middle of all the famous attractions that draw people to Newport; the beautifully landscaped MANSIONS along BELLEVUE AVENUE, the unmatched beauty of our CLIFF WALK and our 10 MILE OCEAN DRIVE, and.....just down the street is a small private beach available to walkers, swimmers and sun bathers. I have always loved Newport and have found it amazingly beautiful, relaxing and exciting. Recently, Newport was listed on ABC GOOD MORNING AMERICA as one of the 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN AMERICA. Imaging living here! You will enjoy watching their news video. The URL for Good Morning America's Video can be found in a Google search using key words GMA's 10 Most Beautiful Places in America.

With a full kitchen on the first floor, our GARDEN COTTAGE allows you the choice of cooking your own meals or dining out in one of our many wonderful area restaurants. The second floor is ONE LARGE ROOM with a queen bed, convertible couch, sitting area, television, dvd player, small library, full bath, skylights and views of ALMY POND. This Cottage Apartment is rented for a seven night minimum stay during the summer months and monthly from September through May.

The BEACH, the CLIFF WALK, the MANSIONS and SALVE REGINA UNIVERSITY CAMPUS are all within two blocks of us. DOWNTOWN NEWPORT is 3/4 mile to the north.

Conveniently located for you to enjoy the summer's annual NEWPORT MUSIC FESTIVAL, NEWPORT JAZZ AND FOLK FESTIVALS. Stay with us, ride bikes and avoid the traffic. Come and surf, swim, fish, bike, paddle board, sail or just relax. Just spending the day sitting on the rocks by the water on the Cliff Walk or Ocean Drive can be a delightfully, relaxing experience.

Enjoy our yard, and sleep peacefully in our quiet location when you return from your escapades each evening.

About Lou Puerini

This is the story of our mom, Marie Puerini. In the past few years her health has declined and, since December, 2013 we have been assisting her with the management of her property. With deep appreciation and love for her classy style we hope to carry on for her. You may still see her at the house. If you choose to stay, pease do stop by and say 'Hello'.

Here is her story:

'My sister was many years my senior and was already living in Newport when I was born. Needless to say, Newport was a completely different town when I was growing up; smaller, less inhabited, no tourists, no restaurants, few stores, no style, and lots of handsome Navy men. As a little girl, I came on weekends with my mother and fell in love with the town.

Many years later I bought my first house here, gathered my children and never looked back. My youngest son wanted to open a small restaurant when he was 19 years old, so I left a very successful business and we became partners. That was 36 years ago, and the restaurant, now called Ida's,, became very successful.'

Lou Puerini purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Lou Puerini chose Rhode Island

I have always loved Newport and have found it amazingly beautiful, relaxing and exciting. Recently, Newport was listed on ABC GOOD MORNING AMERICA as one of the 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN AMERICA.

What makes this cottage unique

My house and my Garden Apartment are on Almy Court, with views from the second floors that encompass Almy Pond. I chose this house by driving by one day many years ago and falling in love with it. It is a quiet area, lovely for walking. Just a few blocks down is Reject Beach, open to the public. It is part of Bailey's Beach, which is a private beach for the 'Summer Set'.

Still one of the best places to stay in Newport!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year staying at Almy Cottage. We love staying there, and we were very happy to return. The cottage has everything you need and is always pristine and inviting upon arrival. We love being able to bring our dog and cats, and they love staying there as much as we do! It is easy to get downtown to enjoy wonderful restaurants, shopping and summer fun in Newport. It is also nice to return back to the cottage where it is quiet and peaceful at the end of the day. We look forward to our visit next year!

Cute and clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great spot and location in a quiet Newport neighborhood. The space was clean and well kept. I definitely would recommend this space for couples looking for a restful weekend away. Thanks for everything Lou!

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This garden cottage was great. Conveniently located near Bellevue Ave, Cliff Walk and beaches made getting around town easy. A bonus was the trolley stop right outside Marble House (a ten minute walk) that got you to most places you'd want to visit. Those rides were my daughters favorite part of the trip. This rental was bright, airy, spotless and incredibly well maintained. Being pet friendly was clutch given that our dog sitter had to cancel last minute. Our little shiba loved running up and down the steps. I would happily stay there again.

A lovely property conveniently located near everything.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a wonderfully picturesque neighborhood that is about a 15-20 minute walk to a nice beach and one end of the Cliff Walk. We enjoyed both. It's a short drive to anything you would want to do in Newport and very near a Stop and Shop for your cooking needs. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen were quite spacious. Lou left some toiletries, including essential oil samples, which were a nice touch. We made use of the grill, washer/dryer, and beach umbrella. My friend and I agreed that it couldn't have been a better stay and we were happy to stay away from the busier area near the water so we had some peace and quiet at night. What's nice is that all the hustle and bustle was a short drive away. Thanks for a great and comfortable stay.

Excellent Stay at Cottage in Newprot

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean, bright and had a nice kitchen which was small but more than enough for a vacation unit. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was nice. It was convenient to the beach and Cliffwalk and also to the main areas of town.

We look forward to staying there again.

quiet, comfortable, convenient for one or two people

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the cottage several times over the past few years. It is located in the back yard of a larger house on Coggeshall Ave. The kitchen facilities are on the ground level of the cottage; bed and bath are on the top floor of a slightly steep staircase. In spite of the fact that neighbors are close on two sides of the cottage, it is very quiet but still within walking distance of a very pretty beach, and easy driving or biking distance from restaurants, etc. and the cliff walk in Newport. I appreciate the owner's installation of a window AC several years ago, and new blinds (last year, I think) to keep the light out more effectively. NB there is a skylight directly over the bed which lets in substantial light in the mornings, in case that might affect someone's late sleeping. On the whole, a very nice place to spend time in Newport.
