About Alan Kinsley
We are the Kinsley family. Originally from Western Massachusetts, we moved to this breathtaking property in West Kingston in 2014 to get away from it all. In such a short time we have fallen in love with this beautiful area, and wanted to provide others with an affordable option to take their family on vacation to enjoy this area we love so much! Thank you for taking the time to look at our property.
Alan Kinsley purchased this Cottage in 2014

Very good location
The cottage was very nice and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
The only thing that would have made it better for me (bad knees) would be a bathroom on the sleeping floor. I knew going into it that there wasn't so, not a problem.
The home made cookies the owner left for us were wonderful.
Overall, a great experience.
Very nice country cottage
Very convenient to Newport large space very accommodating
Lovely location, but that rooster....
We enjoyed ourselves because there's no better place than Rhode Island. And the owner was responsive and tried to please. As accommodations go, this is bare minimum. Few amenities, no shelves stocked with staples like sugar, salt, etc. beds were comfortable. One big drawback: it's a small working farm, and the resident rooster began his blood curdling crowing at 5 -am and continued most of the morning. Not an amenity for vacationers.
Sorry you didn't enjoy the farm environment, it's stated right in the listing you will be staying on a working farm. That's what most people come for, and it's well mentioned in our reviews. I'm sorry you felt you had no amenities. The sugar is next to the coffee machine, the salt and pepper shakers were on the table and filled with salt and pepper. The shelves all have plates, cookware, utensils. We provide clean towels and bed linens (I know most places don't include linens) toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, trash bags, we make sure there is some ice made in the freezer, and some fresh eggs in the fridge. I really don't know any other place that provides any of that at no charge.
Great place to stay. Loved the alpacas. Comfortable and well-located.
Peaceful, spacious ...friendly & attentive hosts
I'm already looking at my calendar to see when I might be able to return to this centrally located oasis which had everything I was seeking. Quiet, lovely eastern view, rambles from right off the property and plenty of space and privacy to stretch out and relax. It was hard to leave in the mornings as I was so enjoying the all the birds and flowers and the feeling of being in a private refuge. Once you descend the long driveway and head out to the main road you are close to everything in the area. Super convenient. The owners were very responsive to any questions/needs. A true find and I will be back !
A Very Pleasant Week
Very hospitable owners, a well-stocked cottage, and lovely surroundings. We had a very pleasant week.
