Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I loved this cottage! I rented it for a couple of days to get away from Boston and to relax on the water. It was perfect and looks exactly like the pictures. Kathy, the host, kept it extremely clean and fully stocked with everything you needed (e.g. dishes, blankets, towels). It was too cold to take the kayaks out, but will definitely do that next time. She was also very nice and helpful with anything I needed. Kathy lives nearby and even placed a chair in her yard so I could sit outside and access her wireless to check email.

    Overall, great host, great place and would highly recommend it for a cute little getaway.

  • We had a very relaxing, lovely time at the cottage. The view of the river is beautiful and peaceful. We had easy access to good restaurants and it didn't take long to get to Jamestown, Newport, and other neighboring towns. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Kathy provided good advice about where to go and what to do in the area. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

  • We spent about a week at Narrow River and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The place was very clean. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and glassware, which was perfect. We loved using the bikes and kayaks, canoes, etc. The birds that were all along the river were wonderful. The location is good because it is close enough to Newport but not touristy. Kathy was easy to communicate with and very professional. She opened up her property to us like we were family and were very much appreciated her warmth. I love to show my family how wonderful America is as they worry since I love so far from home. Kathy was a great representation of all that is nice about this country and its people.

  • We stayed at Kathy's cottage for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The house itself is right on the river and comes with a grill and canoes/kayaks. Sitting by the water and watching the sunset made for a great relaxing end to the day. The house is a quick drive from larger towns like Newport, Narraganset, and the ferry to Block Island. Kathy was an excellent host and very easy to communicate with.

  • My wife and I got out of the city for a break, some peace and tranquility..... We found this quaint cottage perfect! Set right on the river with a log burning fire and great outdoor space with a grill this place really was heaven for a couple of days!
    Kathy was an unbelievably hospitable host and made us feel very welcome. We strongly recommend staying here.... YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

  • The little yellow house was a wonderful place for four sisters to relax. The owner, Kathy was friendly, helpful and caring. The fireplace was a special touch for a late October getaway. We were glad to hear that Superstorm Sandy did not cause harm to Kathy's family and the little yellow house. Highly recommend this rental for its peaceful location, proximity to Newport and beaches, and the great owners.

  • After a day at the beach, it is enchanting to get back to the quiet of the river! Fresh cut flowers and all the welcoming attention showed us the warmth of Rhode Islanders, Kathy and Gary are great ambassadors.The house is as lovely as depicted in the pictures. We enjoyed breakfast as well as the full moon on the porch, delightful!

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.
