Overview

About the property

This crisp and clean beach front cottage, located on a peaceful, dead-end street is the perfect get away. Relax with your family or friends and enjoy stunning views of Narraganset Bay, Lighthouses and amazing sunsets. Near Newport "City by the sea" famous for its scenic beaches, music festivals, opulent mansions, unique shops, five star restaurants and popularity among boating enthusiasts. Only 10 min to historic Bristol where they host the oldest Fourth of July Parade.

After a day of fun and sun, guests will appreciate returning to the quiet and relaxation on the spacious deck to breathtaking sunsets. A fully equipped kitchen ( including dish washer) affords guest the option to cook a delicious meal and dine at home.

There are two bedrooms. One with a full bed and one with bunk beds. A full Bathroom with shower.

The living room has a ceiling fan and is a comfortable space to gather, talk about the day, watch TV or play a game.

Sitting on the property in front of the cottage is a historic trolley from 1904, which ran from Newport to Fall River for many years. It was brought to Baker Road in 1948 and after some additional construction, was used as a summer cottage. Newly renovated and restored to more resemble it's original self, it is also available for seasonal rentals (see listing #791752 for details).

Contingent on availability, 10% discount is offered if both properties are rented as a package.

Great Little Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, this clean, small cottage suited our needs perfectly. In the area for the AnchorDown Running Race at Colt Park, the location was central to everything we needed. The house itself is spotless, comfortable and the welcome fruit/wine gift was a pleasant surprise. The large deck with barbecue and table was our go-to place for most of our stay. It came as no surprise that the view of the ocean would be obstructed by the large trolley car in front of the house as most of the previous reviews have stated, but we walked to the stairs or down to the beach to watch the gorgeous sunsets. I have rented many vacation houses over the years and based on the price of this house, I would expect a few things to be stocked that were missing: there was no blow dryer, no bathroom soap/shampoo items (we had to run to the store for soap!), no washcloths and only 2 rolls of TP (we used what we had sparingly.)

The beach is not really swimming friendly as it is very rocky and those rocks are very slippery. The girl next door took quite a spill and was bruised up. Rhode Island will always be one of our favorite vacation places and we thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us.

Clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was very cute and clean. Matched pics online. Sunsets over the water were awesome to watch from front porch. Little beach was great to explore.

Minor details missed - hair dryer, wash cloths, pot holders.

Lovely detail of wine and fruit waiting for us at arrival was great touch.

Charming cozy cottage with everything you need summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

Recently rented the cottage for 5 nights with my husband and two boys. It's cozy, but actually found it to be slightly larger than I was expecting. It had everything we needed for a nice stay with my family. It's a shortish drive to the newport beaches (about 20 minutes) and very affordable for a waterfront cottage. Yes, the trolley does block ~80% of the view, but you can still see absolutely amazing sunsets over the water in the remaining space. Still a bargain for the price!

Also, Ashley the owner, was extremely responsive when we had an issue with the refrigerator. She had it replaced immediately to ensure we had a good stay.

I would recommend this place for families with kids who like bunk beds. And, we'll certainly consider renting this place again.

Perfect Weekend Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained property right on the water. At the end of a dead end road so it is quiet, nice view of a light house, great deck. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Yes, thank you Dan. I suggest those interested in renting the property strictly for the view look through all the pictures to get a better perspective. At least a third have the trolley, or the end of it, in them. I took all the pictures of the water and sunset from the deck. If you are looking for uninterrupted view, I suggest renting the Trolley. #791752
