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

Why Beth Riccio chose Rhode Island

If you are coming to town for many of the destination weddings or to visit relatives we can provide a comfortable private place for you. With a full kitchen you only need to eat out when you choose to. You can walk to almost everything that Bristol has to offer from our home.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for a weekend in June when we were in Bristol for a friend's wedding. This house has a great location on a quiet street within walking distance to everything in town. The apartment itself is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Beth was a wonderful host who gave us great recommendations on places to go and things to do in the area. She even gave us an extra gift bag she had so we could use it for our wedding gift, which saved us a trip to the store and was much appreciated! I would recommend this property without hesitation and will look to stay here again if our travels take us to Bristol in the future.

Perfect place to stay in Bristol!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience staying at Beth's house! Its an upstairs apartment, a lot bigger than I originally expected. Perfect for two. The heart of the town is just a few blocks away by foot. I would 100% stay here again!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was perfect for our weekend stay in Bristol, RI. We were in town for a wedding with our son & his girlfriend. There was more than enough room for the 4 of us. Beth & Jim are super hosts & provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.

The quaint downtown of Bristol is only a short walk away with lots of great restaurants & shopping. I would highly recommend this rental.

Thank you Beth & Jim!

Perfect hideaway in Bristol

  • 5 of 5

My two boys and I simply had a wonderful time at Beth and Jim's. The apartment is part of the historic house the hosts live in, but very private. There is plenty of room, and everything is very clean and in tip top shape. The location is perfect for exploring this seaside town on foot. Beth and Jim are wonderful hosts, and made sure we had everything we needed.
