About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom steps away from everything Newport has to offer

This downtown luxury cottage is perfectly located on a historic side street; just steps from Newport's best shopping, restaurants and nightlife on Thames Street, and minutes from the beaches. A perfect alternative to a hotel or B&B, and great for those in town for a long weekend or get-away week. The cottage is fully stocked with clean linens and towels, and the other small amenities that will make it feel like your own home by the sea. And with central air throughout the house, the hot and humid days of summer will stay outside by the beach where they belong.

Although we have the rare luxury of two off-street parking spots, there's no need for a car; the mansions, the harborside, restaurants, cafes, and more are all within walking distance. You can even walk to the water taxi pier, which makes frequent stops all along the downtown waterfront.

You will feel like a well appointed host in the gourmet kitchen, with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a high top barstools. Enjoy your time with friends around the beautiful beachwood dining room table, which comfortably seats 8.

We have two bedrooms upstairs with a full bath- one master with a queen bed, and the other has two twins, which can easily be pushed together for a couple.

Downstairs is an open floor plan kitchen, living room, dining room, and half bath. There are sliding glass doors out to the backyard, with grill for summer bbqs. The living room is a perfect place to relax, with three couches, (one pull out), flat screen tv, and a large coffee table. The house sleeps 4-6 adults comfortably.

About Lindsay Fair

I'm a local Newporter and avid beach goer. I'm happy to give tips on where to go and what to do to get the most out of your trip to our beautiful City-by-the-Sea.

Why Lindsay Fair chose Yachting Village

Newport is notorious for its amazing waterfront restaurants, shopping, nightlife....AND impossible parking in all of the areas you want to be in.

This property is in the heart of all of the action, so once you arrive, you can park the car and enjoy it all, steps away. Despite it's proximity to Thames Street, our street is quiet and peaceful, so you can fully relax in this light-filled home.

The cottage is clean, airy and tranquil. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing time. The cottage is really pretty and has everything you need and the central a/c was so nice in keeping things cool and the dampness out. Given the proximity to Thames, we walked just about everywhere save the beach, which is only about a five minute drive. We would love to return next year.

One of the best places we've stayed in Newport

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Newport since I was a kid, and have stayed at many of the hotels and rentals in the area - and this property tops the list! We stayed over Labor Day weekend with our two young children to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and our 10th anniversary. The house is charming, beautifully decorated, clean, well-stocked, and at an ideal location (great walking distance to everything on Thames St, a quick drive to beaches, a fun playground nearby on Bowery Street). The owners were responsive, accommodating, and easy to deal with. I'd definitely recommend this rental and look forward to coming back again...

Location, Location, Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cool, clean, comfortable and charmingly set home well suited to accommodate two families with kids, where the mischievous little ones were always in sight. Perfectly located to enjoy all that Newport has to offer while at the same time feeling peaceful and relaxed. Could not have asked for a better home to spend some much needed family time. Highly recommended!!

The Cottage is located in the heart of the Yachting Village, home to Newport's best restaurants, shopping, bars, and nightlife. Especially popular is Cafe Zelda, which is a fantastic restaurant and attached bar at the end of the street. Look for travelers from all over the world popping in off of their yachts for a glass of wine and good conversation! New York Yacht Club and the historic Ida Lewis Yacht Club are a nice morning stroll away, along Newport's gorgeous waterfront park. Hop a water taxi at the nearby pier and be anywhere in Newport in minutes!
