Comfortable cottage near the waterfront

“The Cottage” is an ideal vacation home for that special time to reclaim your life for a week or two (or longer). It has comfortable accommodations for up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms. Available for shorter term in the winter off season and weekly throughout the summer. If you want to eat in, we have a fully applianced kitchen with cathedral ceilings and skylight, for laundry there’s a washer & dryer. 1 bathroom w/shower inside plus an outside hot shower at the spacious back deck with a gas grill, a private back yard, nice front porch for morning coffee, Wi-Fi high speed internet for e time , bedroom cabinets & closet for plenty of clothes space and wood floors throughout. The house is furnished with 1 queen & 1 full size bed and all kitchen utensils. There are several swimming areas and a small boat launch very close by. Golf course is 5 minutes down the road. Located in a quiet and private neighborhood, about a 10 minute bicycle ride to the town center, plenty of off street parking. Located at East Shore Rd. and Decatur Ave. This is a great place as a quieter alternative to a busier town but with very quick access to those types of areas. Jamestown's a great place for bicycle riding, boating, beaching / swimming, walking, fishing, golfing or doing nothing. Quality restaurants, coffee shops, bakerys and parks create a genuine village feeling at the town center. An easy 10 minute ride over the bridge to Newport for a day in the city by the sea or take the passenger ferry (bring your bicycle) to Newport and direct ferry to the folk / jazz festivals. Guests can also catch a ride on the Block Island Ferry from Newport or the Martha’s Vineyard Ferry from North Kingstown – (20 minute drive). Both ferries will have you at their destination in about 1.5 hrs.

Treat yourself to an island vacation that you have only dreamed of doing. Leave the harried pace behind to come explore an area rich in history, culture and tranquility. It’s an easy 3 – 4 hr. drive from most places in the northeast, NY & NJ. Why not?

Our 5 star reviews reflect the level of satisfaction our past guests have had. You could be the next to experience “The Cottage”.

This isn't rustic, some may say it's quaint or cozy, but I call it a small, simply beautiful island cottage that can make your summer a truly enjoyable one to remember. Bring your bicycles, kayak, surfboards / windsurfers, golf clubs, books, fishing gear or yard games. We have the grill, deck furniture and island ambiance.

Book early as reservations start to come in early January.

This is a non smoking property and we do not allow pets for the comfort of all our guests.

About Marty Casey

Marty grew up in Newport and then moved to Jamestown to raise his family. After 20 years he now lives with his wife, Martha, back in Newport. They enjoy their grandsons, the local beaches (especially surfing), traveling, bicycling, sailing, gardening and hosting their cottage guests.

Marty Casey purchased this Cottage in 2002

Why Marty Casey chose Jamestown

The cottage is maintained and updated to ensure our guests are comfortable and will enjoy their stay. The cottage is featured in an historical book published by a local historian. Conveniently located near direct roads but removed enough to enjoy island tranquility. Guests can enjoy their own deck, back yard, and living areas without distraction from other vacationers as in a shared complex or building.

What makes this Cottage unique

The cottage is set close to water front access areas and other family style activities. For those that want nightlife ...you can be in Newport in 7 minutes! Close to the town center and great restaurants. All the amenities of an apartment or condo but you have the privacy of your own house. A quiet neighbor hood with only a few single family residences nearby.

                                                      Pam D.

                                                      Fantastic stay at the cottage. Perfect location. Boston, Martha's Vineyard, Jamestown, Newport, we could have not asked for a more enjoyable vacation. Marty was quick to reply to our questions and gave us some suggestions regarding fun things to do in the area...

                                                      Great Little Cottage

                                                      carol s.-

                                                      We enjoyed our stay at the cottage in Jamestown. We were working at the boat show all week so didn't have too much time to enjoy the deck, but the house was really clean and comfortable. The kitchen had all the basics for cooking. Great to have a grill. The bath is very tiny but workable. All in all a great place to stay. Thanks Marty!

                                                      Great well maintained and cared for home.

                                                      Yolande H.

                                                      We had a wonderful relaxing time at this comfortable home in a great location, close to everything. Nice restaurants including a cute little taco shack nearby. Went to Middletown one day and had a fun time at the Christmas Tree Shop. We liked being able to walk down a little road across the street to get to the water. Close to one of our favorite places, Beautiful Beaver Tail. We also thoroughly enjoyed the front porch and back deck at different times of day. We also appreciated the little things that we didn't think to bring like hand soap and dish towels. We can't wait to go back to Jamestown. Such a quaint, peaceful and friendly place. Thank you Marty!

                                                      Fabulous stay in the adorable island cottage! Looking forward to staying again in the future.

                                                      Pristine and Perfect

                                                      Claire R.

                                                      We stayed here for a week and loved it. We used it as a base for day trips to Connecticut, Massachusetts and of course, Newport. It is very, very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped, and although we did not do so, you could easily cook a large meal. It is very quiet and peaceful. The village offers some wonderful restaurants. We had the opportunity to meet Marty. He is terrific! We would love to come back and stay here again. This is a cozy place with lots of charm.

                                                      Girls get away!!!

                                                      susan d.

                                                      This little cottage is absolutely perfect!!!! We had everything we needed and so close to Newport and many other

                                                      areas. WE really enjoyed it for the week and would highly recommend it to all.

                                                      Thanks Marty for having such a great place!!!! We'd love to do it again soon...


                                                      Jamestown, RI, USA

                                                      The island of Jamestown is situated with ocean frontage and frontage on Narragansett Bay...one of the best bays on the east coast for boating, swimming, fishing and any water activities. The island is about 2 miles across the bay from historic Newport - easily traveled to via New England's largest suspension bridge. Farm land, numerous water access areas and beaches, fine restaurants, several state parks, golf course, marinas and coffee shops make Jamestown a wonderful vacation spot.
