About Beth Riccio
My husband and I have been very lucky to live in a Victorian home in a beautiful seaport town that others would covet. We love the Historic District and it's charm. Bristol is centrally located to two major cities, Boston and Providence and yet remains very much a small town. Jim is one of the few who are considered 'Native' to Bristol. I on the other hand am a 'Wash Ashore', but couldn't love it more. I am a retired Culinary Arts Instructor and my husband is a Mechanical Foreman for the Rail road. We have 5 children and 11 grandchildren who love to come spend time here with us. We Have a sail boat and never leave Narragansett Bay but enjoys our quiet days on the water. The beaches of Newport are about twenty minutes away and we spend many summer days there with the kids. We have a winter residence in Myrtle Beach and enjoy the ocean there as well.
Beth Riccio purchased this House in 1978

Great time in Bristol! Comfy and convenient
This apartment was perfect. Just as pictured. We were two adults and had plenty of room. Bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and in good working order. Excellent location in the heart of Bristol. We walked to all of the best restaurants. Waterfront is just two blocks away. House and neighborhood were both very quiet. Beth and Jim were excellent hosts. Friendly, flexible, and helpful. We would definitely stay again.
Great location, very clean, and the owner's are great to work with. Highly recommend staying here.
Wonderful apartment in history filled town close to the water and dining!
Beth and Jim were marvelous and charming hosts who have a beautiful apartment complete with full kitchen and bath. Bristol is an amazing town with wonderful shops, a picturesque waterfront, w restaurants and coffee all within walking distance. The apartment itself is very spacious and quiet with plenty of room to spread out. In addition, there is a beautiful sitting area in the backyard with a fireplace table top that was perfect to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Beth helped us the first evening to find a spot to eat since we arrived so late which was very helpful. We really enjoyed talking with Beth and Jim and hearing about the history of the home and the historic district it is apart of. Loved our stay!
Comfortable, good location, good value
Bristol is conveniently located to visit RI. This property is within easy walking distance of the water, restaurants, etc. the property owners are very nice people. It is on the 2nd floor, so you need to be able to go up stairs.
I loved it and would stay there again.
Beth and her husband were very helpful throughout our stay. The unit was clean and comfortable. It was convenient to all of the wedding events that we attended during the weekend.
Beautiful and homey!
We had an amazing time and will aboslutely be back! Beth was wonderful and sweet. Bristol is a fantastic quintessential small New England town & the neighborhood reflects that. The best place my boyfriend and I have stayed in!
Located between Providence and Newport, RI, Bristol is a seaport destination known for sailing, antiquing and fine restaurants. A cozy historic town that is tourist friendly. It is a twenty minute ride to all that Newport and Providence have to offer, while staying in a small waterfront town. Many restaurants, bars and museums are within walking distance. Bristol is very much a sailors haven and well known for some very well known restaurants.
