We are pretty flexable on house rules. This is a quiet neighborhood and a dead end street so we ask our guest to respect our neighbors! We prefer no pets and this is definately a smoke free home. We ask our renters to return our kayaks and canoe to storage rack. If left in front of house on beach, they have been known to drift off with the tide!
We really enjoyed staying at this cute yellow cottage by the Narrows River. Kathy, the owner was very helpful. The cottage was very clean and tastefully decorated. It is a great place for a family or friends get together.
Kathy was an amazing hostess - helpful, kind and very inviting. She helped us by offering suggestions and answering all our questions but she was not intrusive or overbearing at all. A wonderful experience!
We stayed here for a week and it was great. The best part is the location, right on the river, and near the ocean while also a short drive to some good restaurants. A beautiful place to wake up and have coffee on the porch. Kathy was very welcoming but also not intrusive. She was especially helpful when we had an unexpected guest who need a place to park. The cottage itself was clean and simple with slightly low doorways, not a problem for me at six feet but if you were much taller you might have to duck a bit. The beds were very comfortable. The key feature really is that lovely porch where you can sit out and watch the ducks, geese, a few egrets and an occasional kayaker or small fishing boat past by.
We had a great time at the Waterfont Kayaks - Kathy is very warm, hospitable and accommodating.
The place is so serene - getting up early to enjoy sunrise and mist over the river, interrupted only by birds made us feel so Zen-y and relaxed.
Neighbors are so friendly and helpful - we truly enjoyed warmth and waving while kayaking and exploring the area.
Planning to book it again - this time for a week :)
You know when you go on vacation and check out your hotel or rental - look things over and see smiles on the faces of your family and you hear a lot of "WOW! - well, then you know you did good. I was looking for a small rental - charming, casual and with plenty of outdoor fun - and this cottage had it all. I loved it's historic charm and water-front location. The property, home and furnishings were extremely well kept and clean - cottage chic at it's best! Early mornings should not be missed with a cup of coffee in a rocker watching the wildlife and the mist burn off the water. The cottage surroundings are extremely tranquil. Host Kathy welcomed us as family. She was always available to answers questions - from directions to fishing gear! Kathy and her husband are very quick to respond to renters needs - no matter how small. As for the sights....Narragansett attractions are just 5 minutes away, while Newport is only a 15 minute drive. All the RI sights are great, but we were always happy to come back to the little cottage and relax by the water.
We got to Kathy's place very late at night and left fairly early in the morning, so I didn't have a lot of time there. However, everything was laid out for us with clear and concise instructions. I enjoyed watching the river being lit by the early morning sun and everything was so serene. It would be nice to go back when I have more time and be able to take the kayaks out.
Cathy wasn't there when I came, but she answered all my questions.
The house was cozy and clean, you will have a river front living room and a functional kitchen. ! We love kayaking !

About the Host, Kathy
I am a newly retired school teacher of 30 years and I have been renting our family property for most of those years! I now manage three houses; a 3 bedroom, my daughter's 2 bedroom cottage, and now two bedrooms in our 4 bedroom home. All three 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.
