Beautiful view, great location!

We came to Rhode Island on a family vacation with my husband and daughter, as well as my sister's family and our mom. What a great property for a large gathering! Beautiful view of the water, easy access to great restaurants and not too far of a drive to tourist-type attractions (Martha's Vineyard, Newport mansions, etc.). The owners were so kind and welcoming; would definitely return!

Lovely experience

The house was a delightful place to hold a ten day celebration of our 50th anniversary with our two children and their families, including three grandchildren. The house was comfortable, spacious , light filled and well equipped. The three bedrooms upstairs were perfect for our family of nine with the addition of two air mattresses. The grassy area outside was good for playing and the large terrace off the living room was lovely for relaxing, eating and watching the view of the salt pond. The two kayaks made an enjoyable addition.

Beautiful, picture perfect views.

There isn't enough space to write how perfect our stay was. From the minute you pull up into the front yard to a beautiful house. Through the door into an immaculately kept home that was also very well stocked. But the best part is the deck and that view of the water that you just can't look at enough. One of the best places we've stayed at. The owners were also great at answering any questions we had from inside of the house to things to do in town.

Great vacation home

My family really enjoyed our stay at this house. The location was perfect. There was lots to do in the area to keep mom and dad and 2 teenagers happy. We enjoyed parasailing, a sightseeing cruise and glass blowing in Newport. We visited the topiary gardens in Portsmouth. Our favorite adventure was riding the rails at sunset with Rail Explorers out of Portsmouth. The house was spotless and fully equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of space for everyone. The owners were right next door if we needed them. We had no problems but it was nice knowing they were so close if anything went wrong. Loved having the kayaks to use. With the house being right on the calm water the kayaks were used everyday. We would definitely rent this house again if we come back to the area.

We didn't want to leave

What a great spot in RI! The house is on a cove with a spacious deck and beautiful view. The majority of our stay was either spent in the kayak or on the deck. The house is spacious and has all of the comforts of home.

We rented this lovely home for a Thanksgiving get-away. As other reviewers have said, the house was clean and spotless. Although we weren't able to enjoy sitting on the deck, we had the wonderful view being warm and cozy inside. Many thanks go to Maureen for answering all questions and especially for providing the roasting pan for our turkey! And thanks to Brad for quickly getting our slight tech problem resolved with no bother to us. Being close to Newport and Bristol makes this a great spot for exploring RI. I would definitely recommend this property.
