About Sharen Thompson

A gift from my parents, the Cottage on Ellery is owned by my husband, Greg and myself along with my younger sister, Christine.

We are all originally from CT, although I met my husband while living in California. We now live in NC and have 3 adult children. We love coming to the cottage, walking the beach, Sachuest Point and having double lobster rolls from Easton's Beach almost every day! (A must while you're here.)

My sister, Christine, is living in Florida and has 1 son who is in the Navy. She and her friends come to the cottage and enjoy the nightlife Newport has to offer.

No matter what kind of Getaway you're looking for, we know you and your family will enjoy the cottage as much as we do!

Sharen Thompson purchased this house in 1995

Why Sharen Thompson chose Newport East

The Cottage on Ellery is within walking distance to the beach, bars, shops and even a great breakfast diner!

The cottage has a lot more space than you would imagine, so you won't feel like you're on top of each other, but you'll enjoy the charm of a beach cottage.

The best part is the privacy of a separate bunk house! It works well if your group is made up of individual families, singles, or several couples. Everyone loves having their own little getaway next to the main house.

What makes this house unique

The house is almost 90 years old. The walls in the living and dining rooms are plaster coated and with the crossed window panes and flower gardens you feel like you're in a warm and loving place somewhere back in time.

To be able to stay here and have NEWPORT just outside the door is incredible.

Comfort & Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family -- 4 adults, 2 teenagers, & 2 kids. I was concerned as to whether the beds would be comfortable & whether the AC would be sufficient. We weren't disappointed at all! We had no plumbing or electric problems. Everything worked smoothly. We used the sun porch for sleeping & for playing. We only cooked one meal because, for us, vacation meant not cooking. It's true that it's a very easy walk to the beach. The owner, Sharen Thompson, was wonderful. We would certainly stay there again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Cottage on Ellery for two weeks so our two sons and there young families could be together and Grandma and Grandpa could see the little ones in action. the walk to the beach was so easy and so much fun! the cottage was clean, plenty of linens and great deck to relax on. the bunk house was perfect for the two families.

Making the reservation was easy and the owners could not have been more accommodating . Would love to rent again next year!

Thanks for wonderful memories,

Mary & Bob and crew

Our adult children loved the privacy of the sun porch room and the bunk house!!

The accommodations perfect , lots of towels, beach towels, beach chairs, barbecue , cute patio... You will not be disappointed!, also my sister & brother rented the house next door Ellery House, and it was so perfect to have more family right next door !

Our stay was fantastic! The cottage was beautiful and the owners were so helpful and responsive to all of our needs. We threw a lobster clambake engagement party and with Sharen's great input for best places to get our food/supplies, it was a great success. In addition, the beaches provided us with excellent waves and additional memories. Thank you for making. our trip so wonderful Sharen!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most marvelous time at the Cottage on Ellery. The cottage was charming, roomy and comfortable. We loved the privacy of the master bedroom by itself on the second floor along with a master bath. The king bed was very, very comfortable. Downstairs, the kitchen had many of the comforts of home. We really appreciated the fact that either the cleaner/manager or the prior tenants left items for us to use, i.e. condiments, paper goods, etc. We left most of those items as well and were happy to do so. The kids and we were never on top of one another, and looked forward to spending time at the house simply because it was so charming and "homey". The outdoor shower was an awesome treat for all and we loved sitting by the fire pit at night. All in all a perfect week. Can't wait to visit again next year!
