A quiet haven in the heart of Downtown Newport with the most spectacular views!

This extremely desirable property boasts four spacious bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room and a half bath. The dining room, living room, kitchen and half bath occupy the first floor, which is the perfect space for entertaining family and friends. The living room includes a large sofa, two love seats, television, DVD player with a few movies and board games for an occasional rainy day. A large hall closet keeps your beach gear at the ready. The kitchen is fully loaded and includes stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher and microwave. The property is graced with hardwoods and ceramic tile throughout. The second floor contains three bedrooms, a full bath and utility closet with brand new stackable washer and dryer. The third floor is essentially a private suite, comprised of the fourth bedroom and attached full bath. With the exception of one full-sized bed, all bedrooms contain queen-sized beds. Ample closets and full dressers enhance each bedroom. And there are a few desks and chairs for those that need to “stay connected.” The pièce de résistance is the “fourth floor”…one of Newport’s most spectacular roofdecks, offering amazing views of the harbor and bridge. Some of the finest sunsets are experienced here, bar none. A quaint courtyard patio with grill, just outside the back door, completes the package.

Park your car in the private driveway (a guest pass for residential street parking for a guest’s car is also included) and forget about it, as you’re not likely to need it much, if at all here in Newport’s popular Yachting Village. Relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat, literally steps from some of the finest restaurants, nightlife and shops Newport has to offer. Beaches are a leisurely stroll or a lightening-fast car ride away. Tackle Newport’s Cliff Walk for a glimpse of some of the world’s finest and most historic mansions and pick a couple to see up close and personal. Visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the famous Newport Folk Festival or Newport Jazz Festival. Take a harbor cruise on the deck of an America’s Cup Yacht, hit the links JFK style or see Newport from the sky via helicopter tour. These are just a few of the amenities at your fingertips from this lovely property.

                                                            Fantastic stay for our gals weekend!

                                                            Brittany D.

                                                            House had everything we needed, plenty of space, perfect for walking downtown. Roof deck beautiful! Arrived to find a bottle of wine, very welcoming!

                                                            Walk to all

                                                            Andrea K.

                                                            Having just gotten home from our trip to Newport, I couldn't wait to leave a review for this lovely home. Although the weather was not cooperative, we still were able to walk to many restaurants and and Newport center. Not needing to move our car to search for parking lessened the stress of the trip. The townhouse is huge! much larger than anticipated. We went up to the roofdeck to check out the water views, but rain, wind and cold prevented being able to stay for long. Everyone, including our two dogs, were very comfortable. We look forward to planning another trip.

                                                            Middle of it all!

                                                            What a wonderful stay we had this past weekend in Newport! 4 great rooms to fit us all comfortably, nice living room area along with kitchen and dining room. The best part was walking outside and turning the corner to find yourself in the heart of it all! Some of us walked to Zelda’s across the street for dinner one night. Literally right there... everything was just a walk away. Shannon was very informative leading up to the trip and left us a nice welcome bottle of wine and a note to help us feel at home :) hoping to rent again next year!!!

                                                            The stay at Shannon and Dorothy's place was fantastic! Such a nice, clean, spacious well appointed townhouse. Fantastic location, close to everything Newport has to offer. Great to experience Newport in the "off" season. The house was easy to access, Shannon was very responsive to all of my questions! Thank you - would recommend to families and friends!
