We purchased this home 18 yrs ago because the water views were breathtaking It felt magical to wake up to the waves in the morning we originally bought this to be close to newport where we vacationed on long weekends although we still go into town often the best part is just relaxing by the bay and being with family
Joan purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Joan chose Portsmouth
We saw many property's when we were looking but fell in love with the magnificent view the neighborhood is quiet the entire street was once a plantation that was then subdivided into cottages for there families many of these homes have been passed down through the generations we were very fortunate to be able to purchase this

I had hoped that the negative reviews of this property were just people being too picky but I was wrong. I do agree that the view from the living room is beautiful which in my opinion is the only positive feature of this cottage. There were plenty of bath towels but hardly any wash cloths or hand towels and no beach towels. There was no blender in the kitchen. None of this would have been an issue if it wasn't stated as an amenity and we planned on bringing those things.
The place was really dirty. Mouse droppings in and on the stove, in the utility closet and in the living room. Cobwebs and dust everywhere.
I do agree that some of the pictures are definitely deceiving. There is no beach, just rocks. The beach area pictured is next door and we weren't sure if we could use it or not.
The tub had no cold water so you couldn't adjust the temperature very well. The water just went from very warm to hot and nothing in between.
This place was probably equivalent to a one or two star hotel at best.
Way over priced and the fee charges for cleaning are a waste.
I guess you can't please everyone must people love the cottage perhaps you need to stay at a hotel where you have daily cleaning
cozy cottage with a spectacular view
We spent a terrific week at this property in late August. It's a lovely cottage with wood floors, attractive furnishings, and best of all an entire wall of glass looking out onto the bay and Mt. Hope Bridge. It's close to Newport as well as Bristol but set in small group of houses right along the shore. So best of both worlds: quiet and restful but within a 20-minute drive of lots of restaurants and shops. We will stay here again.
So glad you enjoyed your stay please come again
Wow!!!! what a wonderful time my family had and we can't wait to go again next year. the property was well maintained and the view was one of the prettiest views from a home i have ever seen. the inside was very neat and clean and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. the location is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the town of Bristol which was an adorable little town and also from Newport which has such wonderful things to explore. i would definitely go again and highly recommend this property to all.
So glad you enjoyed its always nice to hear please come again
Charming home right on Mount Hope Bay
Beautiful with breath taking views of the bay
My daughter was home for spring break so we decided to take a road trip to one of the places we love most. We hadn't been to the house in a while so it was a wonderful surprise to see that is was redone. I thought it was beautiful before but all the upgrades and new furnishing made it feel like a 5 star hotel. There was a welcome sign and chocolates on the table with a note wishing us a fun time which I thought was a nice touch. There were toiletries like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap etc. in case we forgot something from home. The house was exceptionally neat and clean and the heat was even put on for us prior to our arrival due to it being cold. Now that's service!!!! The view from the living room was even more spectacular then we had remembered. We loved our time there so much that I already booked the house for a weekend in May. We can't wait to go back and hang outside in the warmer weather taking dips in the bay.
So glad to hear you enjoyed and will be back in may
Wonderful get away
