About Gary

We have been a fan of Newport since 1989 and love the historic and architectural charm as well as the open scenic cliff walk views. Newport has offered us a unique home away from home with a atmosphere that is unforgettable…Married in Newport in the mid nineties and have raised our family with Newport as a central figure in our children's lives.

Gary purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gary chose Historic Hill

If I have free time then I want to spend it in Newport, it is my favorite place to be. I wanted to be right down town near all of the action of the downtown triangle, but still have some peace and quiet. This home was the perfect mix of both! I love its old world charm, the history (National Historic Landmark) and being close to all of my favorite spots in town. I can walk to the beach, Tennis Hall of Fame, the mansions and fantastic restaurants. Being able to walk to these places is key because of summer traffic and tough parking!

What makes this apartment unique

Some unique benefits this house has to offer is it's proximately to many of Newport's favorite spots (within just a few blocks from the harbor, Cooke House, Black Pearl, Yesterday’s, Buskers, Starbucks, the movie theatre, etc.) The house also boasts a charming patio for BBQ's and fun as well as a romantic 4th floor cupola which looks out over the harbor. Every piece of furniture was selected to complete the perfect feel for this vacation get-away...from a beautiful mahogany 4-post bed to a wistful breezy sleigh bed, Bright and beautiful summer bedrooms on third floor, bookcase full of great summer reading material, cozy alcove and fireplace reading areas.

A Memorable Wedding Event

  • 5 of 5

This house felt like home to our families from the Midwest. It was complete with beautiful furnishings and provided plenty of room for the eight adults attending a family wedding. The location was comfortable walking distance to shops, piers and eateries! We had a wonderful time in this historic district and would return again and again and again!

The house was charming and fit the needs for our family. I was impressed with the spaciousness.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience while staying there. We each had own privacy with having our own bedrooms yet we could gather in the living room for conversations and laughs! We would definitely stay there again. It had a warm and cozy feel like we were right at home!

Fun family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

Virginia cousins and New York cousins came together in Newport for a fun few days. The house was perfect for us as each couple and each kid had their own room and the house is in a great location to enjoy the town. You can walk to the center of town but are in a quiet, historic neighborhood. You have everything you need but the kitchen is small so plan to eat dinner out each night. We would definitely stay there again!

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable house. The second and third floors easily accommodated our ten family members. It's close enough to the "downtown" area to make walking and shopping tours a snap. We took advantage of this proximity often although the house is easy to drive to and from for "road trips". (We just HAD to see Martha!) The property was very clean and well appointed (games, books, TVs, etc.). Hope we return to the east coast sometime soon to revisit this grand old house.
