Beautiful, Well Kept Home in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

During an annual family trip, my husband, our two young daughters, my sister and brother in law and my parents stayed at Kathy's lovely home. It was truly perfect. The home has ample room, is beautiful and tidy, and it is perfectly located in walking distance to fantastic restaurants, shops and many of the must see Gilded Age Mansions. Kathy is also a gracious hostess, welcoming guests into her home with a handwritten note, bottle of Prosecco, and lovely touches like fresh bottles of floral hand soaps. She truly thinks of every detail to make your stay pleasant. We all agreed that staying in her home added to the charm and enjoyment of our trip.

beautiful home, nicely laid out & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked Kathy's home for my wedding weekend in Newport in June! My family stayed here for the weekend and it was the perfect layout to fit everyone in and not feel on top of each other! The space was nicely laid out so that the kids had their own space upstairs and the adults could enjoy a glass of wine!

The home itself is beautiful and homey, it was very clean and comfortable - we felt right at home!

The location cannot be matched! Only a 15 minute walk to First Beach (Easton's Beach) or a 10 minute walk down the the hill to Bannister and Bowen's Wharf!

Kathy was very easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.

I would highly recommend Kathy's home and would love to make it back one day in the near future!
