About The Owner

Kristine has owned the property since 2005 and has lovingly continued to restore and modernize the property. The roof, chimney and windows were all replaced followed by complete renovation of all 4 bathrooms, installation of radiant heat in multiple rooms and recent overhaul of driveway, patio and gardens.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Newport

Newport is easily accessible and always has something interesting going, film and food festivals, boat show, tennis and sailing tournaments. Restaurants are plentiful and diverse

What makes this house unique

The house has been renovated and updated yearly but maintains charm of its historic roots as stable. The location is on a one way, lightly travelled street yet is just a few minutes walk from the waterfront.

Amazing house in an amazing location!

Had such a great time here. Such a cool space and is right around the corner from everything! It was the perfect set up for the group of 8 we had for a wedding weekend. Would love to stay here again!

Amazing house, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Ladies weekend getaway could not have been more perfect. Plenty of room for all of us and bathrooms have all been updated. House is very clean and beds comfortable. We walked to the cliff walk from the house. We could easily walk to restaurants also. We would definitely come back to this property.

The pictures do not do this place justice! It's a beautiful house in an even better location. We loved hanging out at the house with the huge barn doors open wide, but it's in such an amazing location we didn't have to get in our cars once after we arrived. There are great restaurants, shops and the water within a 5-minute walk! Stay here, you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful Home! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Kristine's home recently with a group of 12 friends for a wedding near by. The house was perfectly maintained and the pictures do not do the space justice. We had plenty of room to sleep across 5 bedrooms and common areas to spend time together. The house is BEAUTIFUL! The house is walking distance to many of Newport's best spots which made our stay more enjoyable.

Kristine was honest, available, and more importantly reliable. I can not say enough nice things about the owner and the property! We will be back!

Great House for Newport Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the home recently and have nothing by great things to say. House is perfectly located 1/2 a block from Thames street, nearby all the great spots of downtown Newport, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and calm the house provides.

5 Full bedrooms across two floors. Plenty of bathrooms where all 5 couples had enough space to enjoy the weekend without feeling cramped.

Owner was honest, communicative, and reliable.

Recommend this house to anyone looking for a great alternative to the hotels in the area.
