Charming cottage, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Kathys cottage was very charming, cozy and comfortable. Just a 2 block walk to water and could not have been a better location. Close to waterfront, parks, stores, restaurants etc but on a quiet street. Our dog loved the fenced yard and so did we as gave us a break from having to jump up and take for walk right away. Also great that Kathy allows guests to leave your dog in the breezeway so you can go to restaurants etc when too warm out to leave in car. Perfect for dog lovers that do not want leave them at home. Thanks for everything Kathy!

Kathy's home is a sweet, cottage-like home in a fantastic, historical Newport neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

While advertised as only 750 sq. ft., Kathy's Newport cottage felt quite spacious and cozy at the same time. Our two important criteria were a location in the historical Point neighborhood that was dog-friendly and offered a back yard. It was like being home for my dog. Even the neighborhood is dog-friendly, including Belle's café located a walk away in the Newport Shipyard. What a lovely spot for breakfast or lunch and so welcoming to dogs there's even a fresh bowl of water available for vacationing pooches. Communicating with Kathy was easy and immediate. The cottage was clean and in good order. Nice fresh, white towels, beautiful wooden floors, air conditioning (although we never turned it on - just opened the screened windows). Wi-Fi worked very well and refrigerator clean and cold (that's the only appliance we used). We did have a bit of a challenge with the keyless door entry. Not sure if that was our lack of understanding keyless but, Kathy was close by on the phone to help us. Loved having off-street parking which appeared to be at a premium in the neighborhood. Another plus! So happy to have found Kathy's place to enjoy with friends and my dog for a Newport getaway. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time walking to all the attractions or just relaxing at the house. The breezeway and backyard were perfect for our high energy dog and the sunsets over the bay were my nightly ritual

Cute cottage in a great location...

  • 4 of 5

I was traveling with my dog, and was delighted to find a house in exactly the location I needed, that i would be permitted to bring her to - so great. It's a short walk to town, and only a block from the water. Ideal.

Convenient location and well kept cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was just as advertised! Very clean and cozy, with a great location to Thames Street, parks, and the beaches. We brought our two dogs, and loved that they were able to make Kathy's cottage a home! Newport was so pet friendly. Thanks again for letting us stay here!

Another PERFECT Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family makes an annual visit to Kathy's summer cottage. We grew up in this home which makes our visits very special every year. Kathy keeps her home immaculate and has everything you will need for your stay. The house is conveniently located to everything and is in a quiet traditional neighborhood. The house is less than 2 miles from the beach and a short walk into town for shopping and wonderful seafood! Also minutes away from the pier for beautiful sunsets. Kathy makes herself available anytime you need anything and is the most gracious host! We can't wait for our visit back next year! You can't go wrong with Kathy and her home, we highly recommend her to anyone. The Martin's and the Navy's :)
