Sea Glass Cottage is located on the exclusive north shore of Jamestown/Conanicut Island, on a quiet cul-de-sac adjacent to Narragansett Bay.
This historic Victorian-style cottage was built in 1876 and has been in our family for over 100 years. In 2008 we bought Sea Glass Cottage from our extended family and began its total restoration & upgrade, touching every aspect of the house, including new; roof, electrical & internet wiring, plumbing, walls & moldings, heating system, double-pane windows, window air conditioners, ceiling fans, new septic system with water filtration system, new bathrooms, new kitchen, & interior/exterior painting. Most importantly, we retained our cottage’s historic heritage by refurbishing the original tin ceilings, doors, and wood flooring.
Our home is a few steps away from a shell beach, a shore line neighborhood beach, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, skipping rocks, or moonlit camp fires. Beach shoes are recommended. The beach has amazing views of the Narragansett Bay, Prudence and Patience Islands. We have a wrap around porch that allows you a serene place to relax in one of our comfortable rockers & enjoy our tranquil setting. Our spacious backyard has a brick patio with BBQ & picnic table for family dining. And by July 4th 2018, we will have a new backyard deck with a dining set for six, plus two chaise lounges, to enjoy more Bay views!
The new gourmet kitchen is fully equipped, and its counter island seats two, allowing for comfortable gatherings with the chef. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated with many of the family’s original antiques, mixed with cottage-style comfort.
On the first floor there is the living room, dining room, kitchen, one full tub/shower bathroom, and a once-upon-a-time music room - that can be closed off completely for privacy with a queen sofa sleeper. The second floor has one full bathroom (shower only), four bedrooms; two have full beds, one has two twin beds (King linens are available if guests want to combine the twins into a King bed), and a tiny room which was once the nanny quarters - has a single daybed, with access stairs to the kitchen.
Located on the north end of Jamestown, you are just 10 minutes from the center of Jamestown and 20 minutes to famous historic Newport.
Based on our family's past 100 years of enjoying Sea Glass Cottage - I can easily say it is an ideal location for building sweet family memories and traditions.
We would like a maximum 6 guests - but will consider a couple more persons under certain conditions. We are children friendly & ask that there be no smoking please within our cottage.
