On the waterfront of Narragansett Bay, Cedar Cove Cottage offers weekly and nightly getaways, accessible by car, boat, or bicycle. The Overlook unit consists of two bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and bath, plus waterside picnic pergola, fire pit, private yard, and private beach. We welcome families interested in the beach, boating, the outdoors, and life by the water. Located on the protected waters of Blue Bill Cove, Cedar Cove Cottage comes with kayaks, beach, boats, and steps down into the water. The surrounding Island Park community offers six restaurants, two large public beaches, three marinas and a playground, all within walking distance. Six minutes away in Bristol you’ll find a classic American town with museums, gourmet restaurants, and cultural activities. Eleven miles away is Newport with its mansions and yachting.
Upstairs at Cedar Cove commands an unobstructed view over the cove, with accommodations for five in two bedrooms, plus two more in convertible couch. A full bath and eat-in kitchen complement the 20-foot long living room. Fully furnished, with private entrance, Overlook serves as a cozy aerie and quiet place to work and relax.
A dozen cottages surround our little cove, protected from wind and waves, more like a lake than an ocean. Connected to the Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic, the cove is full of small boats, shellfish, swimming, birds, and wildlife.
Five steps take you from the cottage to the quiet sandy beach, where there’s room for sunbathing, sandcastles, and volleyball. A gentle slope and calm waters make the beach ideal for young children. Shellfish abound. Cedar trees block the afternoon sun in the grotto corner of the beach.
Five kayaks, a rowboat, a 17-foot Bristol Skiff, and an inflatable windsurfer make up the Cedar Cove Cottage fleet. All come with life jackets (required), oars, and paddles (recommended).
This vine-covered outdoor space is where we eat dinner most of the summer. Protected from the sun, but open to the sea breezes, the tables in the pergola seat eight.
A grassy space for relaxing or playing, with Adirondack chairs, firepit, tool shed, flowers, gnomes, and birdbaths, overlooks the water and is fenced from the street and neighbors for privacy.
A laundry room with washer, dryer, and storage on the main floor is convenient and available to both units.
