About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This Beautiful Victorian Cottage circa 1895 comes with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a harbor facing roof deck. Watch the sun set over the water on the roof deck, or relax outside in the private backyard with outdoor shower and beautiful flower beds.

The location on Goodwin St, is just steps from the boat harbor and Thames St. and all of the restaurants and bars of downtown Newport. Additonally, just a short bike ride or drive to the beach, the cliff walk or Bellevue Ave., this cottage is the perfect base camp for exploring all of Newport.

About Christopher Tunnah

I live in Brooklyn and have been a General Manager for several NY Times rated restaurants. This year I celebrated my 20th year in the industry, as well as branching out to work on my own as a Restaurant Management Consultant. In 2017 I will be opening a restaurant in Middletown and making the move to Newport for half the year!

Christopher Tunnah purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Christopher Tunnah chose Newport

Newport is an amazing place. It has historical interest, beautiful architecture, and amazing restaurants. Unlike so many coastal destinations, Newport is a year-round destination and a living town. The beaches that ring the island are just the icing on the cake...Newport is a truly amazing destination!

What makes this cottage unique

The house has a fantastic location, many shops, bars and restaurants are within walking distance.

All the beaches are nearby, and make for a quick car trip, or a leisurely bike ride.

Finally, as the harbor is in front of the house, evenings are magical when up on the roof deck, sharing some drinks and a gorgeous sunset with friends!

Wonderful Cottage in the center of Newport

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this wonderful cottage on Goodwin St for the last two summers. The location is excellent and allows for easy access to restaurants and shopping. The rental comes with two parking spots which makes it easy to get to and from the grocery store and beaches without the stress of finding parking. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation in Newport and I plan to rent this home again next summer.

Great in every way!

I'm a bit late with this review, as we stayed here for a week over a month ago, but I didn't want to miss the chance to say how great it was. The location is ideal, steps from the main drag in Newport, so walking distance to just about anywhere. The house itself is as described, a wonderful cottage-type residence that is furnished with everything you could possibly need, in the kitchen and throughout. The stairs are somewhat steep, so be aware if that might be a problem for you. If we return to Newport, we'd go back to this house in a second! Thanks, Chris!

Harborside Victorian

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Easy walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Accommodations were very good except for lack of closet space and intermittent WiFI problems. Quiet and backyard was great as well as the roof top deck. Two parking spaces are available but sometimes individuals park in front of the property who did not have parking passes but we could usually find a space around the corner.

July Vacation in Newport.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four from Michigan thoroughly enjoyed our week in Newport and our stay in this adorable cottage. The cottage is located in an ideal spot. We were able to walk everywhere with ease. The house is very clean, comfortable and the set up is great. The owner was quick to respond to any questions that we had about the cottage. You can not go wrong with this one for your Newport rental!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutley thoroughly enjoyed this charming home. Everything was lovely. I must say the location in particular was the hugest bonus. We were able to do alot of walking locally up and down Thames St to the lovely shops and restaurants. Combine that with the comfort and cleanliness of the accommodations and we couldnt have been happier. Quiet and private. The fresh ocean breeze was a constant pleasure. The owners were wonderful to work with, HIghly recommend.....would go again in a heartbeat.
