About Kathy

We purchased this property in 1995 and love its quiet location yet so conveniently located to the golf, yacht clubs and town. The polo pony barn was converted into the guest cottage in 1997. we kept the exterior barn look and cathedraled the sitting area. With the walls and ceiling fresh white, it is a relaxing and peaceful guest cottage.

Kathy purchased this cottage in 1995

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy, comfortable, and charming "polo barn"!

  • 5 of 5

A most welcoming, cozy, clean and bright cottage! We were surprised to find fresh fruit on the table, cereal on the counter along with coffee and tea. Also milk, coffee cream, juice, bagels, cream cheese and jam in fridge. The beds were so comfortable and the down comforters cozy and warm. Patio was a lovely place to sit and sip coffee and living room comfortable and pristine. Loved the welcome sign on the door with our names on it. Far better than staying in any hotel. Close to downtown, the ocean, restaurants, shopping, mansions, ocean drive and other sightseeing attractions. A great place to stay, thanks to Kathy and her husband. We will be back!

Just Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Ever walk into a room and think, "Man, this is perfect". That was my experience here. The place was clean, charming, and well stocked & equipped. The only thing it was missing is a stove, but I never cook on vacations anyway. Very close to town, parks, beaches, and mansions. My wife and I stayed with our 7 month old son, and found the space just right. We can"t wait to come back!

A perfect stay in Newport

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the barn and plan to come back. It is spacious, comfortable, well-appointed quiet, and attractive. The private patio is lovely for sitting, and Kathy is a great host who provided everything we needed. We found the location perfect as well--easy access town via foot, bike or car, and near Ocean Drive and beaches. The personalized welcome sign on the door was a great touch at arrival. We highly recommend this delightful property.

More than satisfied

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect, as was the location! The beds were comfy and the shower was great! Our only surprise was the dorm-sized frig. We would recommend Flo's Clam Shack near Easton Beach as well as Benjamin's in Newport. Both offered great food in a relaxed atmosphere. We would highly recommend this place!

Newport trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the barn. Kathy was very helpful. We had everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the patio in the morning. We plan on staying there next time we are in Newport.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I recently stayed 2 nights. It was as nice as shown in the pictures and noted in reviews. Peaceful and near everything. A great retreat after being in the hustle and bustle of downtown Newport. We wanted to stay longer! We will definitely go back. Kathy was very nice and welcoming, but at the same time gave us space and privacy. We enjoyed watching all the birds and wild bunnies in the yard :-)
