About the Property

Comfortable cottage near the waterfront

The cottage is a wonderful vacation home, or place to stay while visiting family in the area, with 2 bedrooms that would be comfortable for 2 adults & 1 or 2 smaller children or an additional couple. Available for shorter term (inquire) in the winter off season and weekly throughout the summer. Fully applianced kitchen with cathedral ceilings and skylight, washer/dryer, 1 bath w/shower plus outside hot shower at spacious back deck and grill, private back yard, front porch, Wi-Fi high speed internet , bedroom cabinets, wood floors. The house is furnished with 1 queen & 1 full size bed and all kitchen utensils. Several swimming areas and small boat launch very close by. Golf course is 5 minutes down the road. Quiet and private neighborhood, about 10 minute bicycle ride to 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 and parks create a genuine village feeling at the town center. An easy 10 minute ride to Newport over the bridge for a day in the city by the sea or take the passenger ferry (bring your bicycle or rent in town) to Newport and direct ferry to the folk & jazz festivals. 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 and deck furniture.
This is a non smoking property. Pets not permitted.

Car: Recommended

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.
