About Jay

Conveniently located in an area of Barrington known as Prince's Hill, named for Thomas Prince. In 1652 The Plymouth (Massachusetts) land court granted Mr. Prince this land formerly occupied by the native Wampanoags. Now Prince's Hill is the center of commerce and business in Barrington.

This cozy house was built on the last remaining vacant land that at the turn of the 20th century was once our family farm. The original farm house built in 1899 still stands just behind this house. The single quince fruit tree in the back yard is the last from dozens of apple and fruit trees that once made up the local family orchard.

Jay purchased this house in 1990

Why Jay chose Barrington

This house is ideally located close to commerce, public office, public library and center of activity in Barrington... a short drive to local beaches and state attractions. About an hour’s drive to nearby Cape Cod and Boston.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay. Great little house, just the perfect size for the two of us; and, very close to our family who live in town.



Would like to thank you for such a great setup; very clean, neat and tidy. The house seemed to have everything we needed and we got a great homey feeling, like a home away from home, it made for a fantastic holiday stay. Also, thanks for the snow removal work sunday morning, it helped a lot!

Perfect Town Center Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 truly enjoyed our week in Barrington at this roomy 2-bedroom home. The owner's communications beforehand were extremely thorough and helpful. Upon arrival we were met with a spotless, cozy house and fresh flowers in the living room. The kitchen is large and extremely well-appointed - we found everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable and nicely prepared with linens, as was the bath. Favorite thing: walking to Vienna Bakery in the morning for coffee and treats! We would definitely stay here again when visiting our family in Rhode Island.

We had a lovely time staying at Jay's house. It had all the necessary items needed for our five night stay. It was wonderful being in the heart of Barrington which made it very easy to access multiple shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend the property!
