Guest access

Guest will have access to everything in this cottage!
Our kitchen is small but very well equipped with everything you should need, even down to the spices! A gas grill is also provided. All linens, towels, and extra blankets are provided. We get nice breezes on the river but we do provide small bedroom fans if ever needed and there are 3 ceiling fans in the house. Guests are welcome to use our kayaks, canoes and our 4 bikes. The boats are shared with guests in our 2 bedroom cottage during the summer. There is a small shed on the property that has kayak and canoe paddles, life jackets, etc. Shed also has a croquet set, horseshoes, etc. for yard games.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I are both retired and live close by, in the neighborhood. However we have been renting for 35 years and we pride ourselves with giving our guest complete privacy.
We leave this rental unlocked with the keys inside, awaiting your arrival. We stay out of sight after a quick hello unless we are needed. We can be helpful with telling folks about the area but we also leave a binder about restaurants and places to go inside the house.
We have found that the majority of our tenants appreciate that we are nearby for peace of mind to handle any situations that may arise!

Other things to note

Many folks ask if the river is clean enough for swimming. The answer is yes! The bottom of the river is a a little muddy from being turned up by all the boat traffic but the river is clean enough for swimming even right in front of this house! We even have our own little (about 20 feet wide) beach in front of this house! Most of vacationers seem to prefer our beautiful ocean beach just 5 minutes away by car! Narragansett Pier ocean is one of the top beaches in the state. There are fees for the beaches but we have tips and suggestions for our tenants.

This was a great house in a small and very quiet neighborhood. Kathy is a very conscientious host. The kayaks and canoes were great, and we were even successful fishing and crabbing. Enjoy.

Beautiful home! I stayed here with my 4 friends for Memorial Day weekend and it was a great time. The home is right on a river with a great deck that looks directly on it. My friends and I loved using the canoes and kayaks during the day and ventured into Newport at night (30 minute drive). Kathy and her husband do live directly next store so if you're looking for total seclusion this may not be the place for you. I really appreciated having Kathy so close by- she was so helpful. We needed some assistance using the grill and both her and her husband came right over. They are very warm and welcoming people! I will definitely be going back!!

Kathy is a wonderful host and the place is terrific!

We had a wonderful and peaceful time gazing on the river everyday--from sunrise to sunset. A very nice retreat to recharge and relax.

Kathy was an outstanding host. The cottage, neighborhood and water views exceeded our expectations. We were visiting our son during Parents Weekend at the Naval Academy Preparatory School NAPS). Kathy's cottage was a welcoming retreat for our family since this was our son's first weekend liberty since reporting to NAPS for INDOC last July. The views and ambiance were just the ticket for unwinding after an arduous but rewarding indoctrination to the United States Navy and preparation for the Naval Academy. We would definitely stay again and are recommending her cottage to my brother-in-law and his family when they come up for NAPS graduation next May.

Kathy was so accommodating from my first booking her property back in a April through to our stay this past September. She made sure to connect with me through email and in person upon our arrival and even provided us with ideas for local activities and dining. Our group of 5 stayed very comfortably and loved every second of the view from this property. We stayed during a perfect weather weekend and sat outside on the deck or in one of the adirondack chairs near the water at almost all times. This property is cozy and a close drive to Newport and Jamestown. Highly recommend.

Kathy was wonderful in that my friends and I made a very last minute booking with her on a Saturday night, when we realized all the hotels were sold out for the night. She accommodated us with no problems. We met her the next morning and she is a very sweet, practical woman. The house is beautiful and very cozy. Feels like a home away from home!

Kathy User ProfileKathy is a superhost.

I am a newly retired school teacher of 30 years and I have been renting our family property for most of those years! I manage two houses; a 3 bedroom home and my daughter's 2 bedroom cottage. Both are waterfronts on Narrow River. We love the river and its uniqueness as a brackish tidal inlet between the ocean and a huge fresh water lake. We are located on the river halfway between the lake and the ocean. My husband and I enjoy meeting new people and will help any way we can to make your stay memorable! We have lots of local information on activities, restaurants,
etc in Narragansett and South Kingstown and all the surrounding area of interest in Southern RI.
We live close by the properties we rent but totally respect our tenants privacy. We are there if you need us for anything, but otherwise keep a very low profile.
