About the Property

Beach Chic Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5) Charming Boutique Deco

Our quiet white shingled 'Nantucket Style' cottage perches herself overlooking the soft breezy tranquil waters of Mt. Hope Bay and is directly on a private beach. This charming Beach Chic Rose Cottage transports you to life in a bayfront home. The Victorian 30 foot white wicker porch is covered with flowers spilling from their window boxes and is infused fresh ocean air. It is awash in breezy ocean colors overlooking at the sea. It is the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee watching the red sunrise or have a glass of wine watching the captains billowing sails go by towards their open sea adventure. A balmy night, the moonlit sea, a soft breeze, the infusion of fresh sea air throughout the house, sultry music together with a dazzling view of twinkling lights across the bay bridge make for one of the most memorable evenings of the summer! You won't want to leave your front porch! The coastal appeal, cushy down pillows, hand rolled towels and your personal platters of treats awaits your arrival! See You in Here in 2014!

The tranquil blue and white 'Captains Room' overlooking the ocean is thoughtfully appointed in April Cornell blue and white designer linens, down pillows and down duvets and is perfect for a plush week of restful sleep. Keep your windows open to hear the water lapping against the shore.
The sun soaked 'Rose Garden' room is done in a cottage white and blue decor, white wicker and also has special touches of down pillows and duvets. It is sun soaked and has climbing roses in front of its windows along with window boxes full of blooms and beachy themed accents.

A new English white kitchen with bead board white cabinets, butcher block counters, gas stove and a farmers sink is ready for you to enjoy if you decide to cook or just make tea. Our Blue and White English China is a nice appointment for tea and scones or fresh lobster salad which is plentiful here in Bristol! Local wine is left for you in the fridge along with your personal platter of treats upon your arrival! We are open winter, spring, summer or fall. We decorate and suggest visits during our towns celebrations each season. Of course Fourth of July is a pinnacle in Bristol and is exciting to experience right down to our Red, White and Blue stripped streets! Although there is much to to here, many of our guests just
spend your time on our patio outside overlooking the beach relaxing on our comfortable padded chaise lounge chairs.

Some of our guests fish directly in front of the house for their catch of the day. You can shell all day and walk the beach or take your own boat, call for our mooring availability and capacity. Anyone who wants a get away for a special occasion or just a vacation, this is a special place to come and not far from any adventure, including the fantastic Newport Mansions, Polo Grounds, Roger Williams Zoo, the stately homes of Bristol, our favorite casual restaurants, golf, etc...
Come prepared for anything, or just bring your flip flops and enjoy being at home on the beach!

Bristol Sails Cottage is perfectly located on its own private neighborhood beach (quiet and tranquil) in the quaint seaside village of Bristol, RI, surrounded by the ocean! Celebrate the best of living on the ocean in our romantic cottage with its scented seaside garden patio, rose covered arbors and flower boxes spilling with petunias! Great for dining alfresco or just lounging on our cushy padded chaise lounge chairs 4 feet above the beach! Our seaside gardens allow the ideal setting for the display of sculpture and ornamental plants. The heart of living seaside alfresco is our rose covered victorian porch that is the interaction of inside and outside letting the fresh sea air in! Being just four steps from the beach is what I love the most here! Enjoy the good things in life like a fresh lobster boil dinner and relax to the outdoor sounds of seabirds and the lull of the waves! Swish! Swish! Swish! Throw one of our poles in and fish from shore, snorkel, shell or walk the beach. Anchor yourself to the shore and float on our new floaties all day while sipping your lemonade!

In town you can walk hand in hand down the cherry tree lined streets of this picturesque seaside village and stop at our local boutique shops like The Knotty Dog (my favorite), Alfreds Antiques, Kate & Company, Jackies Loft and The Foolish Fox.

Fresh seafood abounds here in local restaurants like 'The Lobster Pot' or 'Persimmons' and 'Quitos Fishmarket and Restaurant. Breakfast at 'The Bee Hive' on Franklin Street where fresh local produce is used to produce their fantastic fare. Some of their yummies are home made scones, egg and cheese filled breads, cinnamon french toast and homemade granola. My favorite meal here is Chef Eli's homemade bread made open faced with poached egg, fresh shucked peas, (shucked that morning) al dente tri colored carrots with a thin cheese glaze.

Our favorite pastoral coastal drive is from our Bristol Sails Cottage to Little Compton stopping at Tiverton Four Corners (a small artisan village) where you can stop at an adorable french bakery and enjoy handmade chocolates, french croissants, sandwiches or The Milk and Honey Shop for fabulous gourmet cheeses, Grey's Homemade ice cream is next door and all within steps of each other.

Then onto Sakonnet Vineyards for a wine tasting and end at a private beach with a beautiful view of a lighthouse! Not far away is Newport where you can take in a two hour sail on the Adirondack which will take you along the coastline to view Seacoast mansions. Walk the famous 'Cliff Walk' and view the Newport mansions up-close.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a romantic couple who love the beach and small historic seacoast villages. We live in a lovely historic town in Massachusetts however love the coast and the milder temperatures of Bristol, Rhode Island. We have built several homes in the past and I am an interior decorator and we loved the challenge of taking a historic home on the ocean and creating a home away from home by the sea. It's a hard place to rationalize owning if you don't share it with others. There's no place like the beach!

Why the Owner Chose Bristol, RI, USA:
We were fortunate enough to have an opportunity to buy a lovely 'Nantucket' style rose cottage on the beach in a private, quiet neighborhood in Bristol, RI. This quaint town is still a treasure that no one has found! We are far enough removed where we are located in Bristol but near every amenity. We don't have to take a plane or a boat to get to our beach house. It is an easy drive for us and most people to get here. There is so much to do and not the hustle and bustle that some of the more tourist towns can have. The unique restaurants, antique stores, boutiques and parks are within our bicycles reach! We get up in the morning and look at the red sunrise over the ocean as we sip our morning coffee and our neighborhood heron greets us on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The sound of the ocean lapping against the shore in front of the house is mesmerizing. The spectacular view of the sailing boats billowing by the house is why we named it Bristol Sails. The Swans that visit are all gentle reminders you are on the beach and can enjoy the peaceful life here. Stay home all day and enjoy it in flip flops, cook outside and enjoy the outdoors or get ready to adventure everyday to a newly discovered spot in Bristol or neighboring towns. Unique treasure hunting at the local antique or upscale consignment shops is fun or taking in a Polo match, golfing or picnics in Colt State Park are fantastic!
