This extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed four-bedroom renovated 1800s colonial will be your home in the heart of downtown Newport. A home as spacious as this in the center of town is a rare find! Located in the General Business District part of the Newport Historic District – an area designated a National Historic Landmark - your location could not be better. It is hard to think of another place in the USA where such a collection of original colonial buildings still exists. This is one of those historic homes - and wharf dining, mega yachts, water taxis, sunset sailing, and shopping on cobblestone streets is all just steps from your door. You will never run out of things to do while on vacation at this home.
You will have the entire home and complete privacy. Each of the four bedrooms are full bedrooms with super comfortable beds. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and queen beds in the other three bedrooms. Enjoy quality decor, floorboards throughout, luxurious linens, fluffy white towels, and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.
The house is kept in pristine condition and we take great pride in ensuring that it is perfect for each guest's vacation.
The house has been renovated to maintain its original historical design with the kitchen on the lower level of the three levels. The kitchen looks out to the street and guests love that you can make as much noise as you like in the kitchen in the morning without waking guests sleeping on the upper floors. Adjacent to the kitchen is a modern eating area with a table and benches and a cafe counter looking out through a garden to the historic downtown street. It's a great place to hang out with a coffee and a laptop. The next level up has an open-plan living/dining area. We have also just installed a new 40"-screen LCD Smart TV, so if you have a Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon account you can watch your favorite shows. On this level there is also a private bedroom with its own half bath - a perfect bedroom for those who don't want to manage stairs. The other three bedrooms are on the top floor.
To make things easy for our guests, the house comes fully accessorized with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, paper products, a hairdryer, iron, ironing board, and a full washer and dryer.
Many guests coming to Newport to attend weddings choose our home because it is in walking distance to so many wedding venues. Those in the boating industry love the convenience of this home for sailing events and the boat show, with the Newport Harbor only steps from the front door.
It's the perfect place to come for weddings, the jazz and folk festivals, the boat show, business trips and conferences, a long weekend of harbor sunset cocktails and gourmet dining overlooking mega yachts, or for putting up family members during Reunions, Parents Weekends, Homecoming, and Graduations at Newport's Salve Regina University.
We have kept our pricing extremely reasonable for you. There is a 15% discount for a week-long stay and a 30% discount for a month-long stay. Winter rates are discounted. There is a three-night minimum for weekends in May and June and a four-night minimum for holiday weekends as well as for all weekends July - September. There is a high demand for all these summer weekends and they book quickly. All other weekends through the year are a two-night minimum. A mid-week stay at any time of year is a two-night minimum - although please do ask if you can only stay one night, as sometimes I can manage that for you.
