Enjoy the relaxing ‘Island Life’, where you can walk to the beach, watch boats go by and take pleasure in beautiful sunsets, from the deck of this charming 1,700 square foot, 3-bedroom, 2-bath cottage with water views of the West Passage of Narragansett Bay.

Situated in a quiet family neighborhood, this bright and comfortable cottage features an open and dining area.

The spacious living room opens to the deck, as does the master bedroom, with its own sliding door to the deck and water views. A finished walk-out lower level, with a full bathroom, round out the amenities of this charming home by the sea, which is nestled within one of Narragansett Bay's most desirable island communities.

About Jon

My wife and I are avid adventure travelers, who like to explore new countries and cultures. We have grown up and been around water all of our lives. Having settled in the upstate NY Albany area, we enjoy skiing in the winter and the local lakes in the summer, but missed the open water. Getting a place on the water in Jamestown has been wonderful! There is much to explore and do on the island, and it's only a short hop over the bridge to all the bustle and activity in Newport.

Jon has retired from a long career in commercial building services and now focuses on finding, renovating and operating choice vacation rental properties in Jamestown. Jon continues to sail and race competitively when he can.

Mary Ellen continues her passion of leading STRIDE Adaptive Sports, a non-profit organization she founded as an outgrowth of her teaching career, providing sports and recreational activities for youth and Wounded Warriors with disabilities.

Jon purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jon chose Jamestown

We love the Jamestown/Newport area. There is great sailing, biking, diving/snorkeling, and beaches. We enjoy the activities and sights of Newport with the more relaxed atmosphere of Jamestown island.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is ideal for a family to relax. The covered deck overlooks a large back yard with water views of Narragansett Bay. The house sits on a very quiet street on a short walking distance to the community beach.

The newly renovated kitchen provides a focal point for family and friends to gather and the large family room downstairs provides a 'getaway' for the kids.

Fantastic Location! Relaxing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, easy to get to Newport for a night out downtown, yet just as much fun to play Bocci in the backyard and get Fresh Lobsters for the very Nice Grill! Wonderful Time!!!!

Another amazing week in Jamestown!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed another incredible week in beautiful Jamestown!

This was our third summer renting this house, & as in the past two summers, it couldn't have been any more relaxing and convenient! The view of the water from the deck just never gets old, & the neighborhood is just so ideal for walking and biking with the beautiful Sunset Beach right down the road totally living up to it's name! Our teenage boys and their friends went to several different beaches from Newport to Narragansett, & then many nights enjoyed the spacious lower level to hang out & watch movies...plenty of room in this house for all! We lucked out this year renting the week of the 4th

of July and were treated to some amazing fireworks from the various towns with perfect viewing right from the back deck!

Needless to say, we will be back...this house has everything...from beach chairs & boogie boards to all your kitchen & bath

needs...can't wait to return next year!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and location. Interior outfitted to make one feel right at home. Back yard was perfect for several challenging croquet matches. The sunsets from the deck made our martinis taste better than ever. For sight seeing, the walks at Fort Wetherill State Park, casual dining at Fish in Jamestown, taking the ferry across Narragansett Bay, or upscale dining at 41 North in Newport were all great.

Fantastic return stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had another perfect week in Jamestown with our teenage sons and two of their friends! The house has all the conveniences & the view from the deck is lovely! We really enjoyed morning and evening walks, bike rides throughout the neighborhood, and watching many beautiful sunsets right down the road at the little beach. Some daytrip highlights were Beavertail Lighthouse (only 10 minutes away), Newport Cliff Walk & beaches, Fort Adams and Newport mansions.

We also enjoyed chowder & clamcakes at Chopmist Charlies, and an incredible breakfast and gelato at Slice of Heaven! Hope to return next summer!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this house for our RI vacation and couldn't have been happier with our stay. This house is perfect for our family and feels like a home away from home. It is well stocked with everything we need and the owner is incredibly responsive and informative about things to do in the area. Our kids loved the downstairs surround sound TV. My father- in-law has assistive needs and it is a great set up for him with a bedroom, bath and access to the deck on the main level. He loves to enjoy the view and watch the boats. We also had a fabulous dinner at the Matunuck Oyster Bar in S. Kingston, only 25 mins away. We can't wait to return next year!
