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 stayed here for my daughters graduation from URI, the location relative to campus was great and the yard/views were beautiful.

After two very busy days in NYC we absolutely enjoyed the peaceful scenery and the gorgeous cottage. Everything was perfectly prepared and Kathy was extremely helpful and hospitable. We all loved taking out the kayaks. We always would come back.

We had a wonderful time on Narrow River in Kathy and Gary's cottage. The booking process was quick and Kathy communicated with us promptly before, during, and after our visit. When we arrived Kathy's husband Gary came over and introduced himself and gave us a quick tour. The cottage is as described and located right on the beautiful waterway at the end of a quiet dead end road. The location is convenient to places to eat and sites to see including the famous Narraganset Pier area and beach. Our kids had a wonderful time playing in the water near the cottage edge and we enjoyed the use of the kayaks. If we ever return to the area, a good possibility, we'd certainly stay with these hosts again.

Kathy is a great host-- warm and responsive. I don't think we could ask more from a host.

Kathy is a wonderful host and the cottage is a lovely spot on the river for enjoying the beauty of the area. We enjoyed our stay immensly and can't wait to return next year.

Kathy was very welcoming and friendly. The location is steps from the river, and we enjoyed kayaking and relaxing in the chairs under the shade of a large tree.

We had a lovely experience in Rhode Island. Kathy was very friendly and welcoming. She came right over to give us an overview of the cottage. She was readily available, but always respected our privacy. The location was ideal. A short drive to local beaches and Newport which really enjoyed. The most ideal part was the location right on the river, where we were graciously permitted to use Kathy's canoes/kayaks. While the cottage was a bit tight (tall folks may need to watch the low ceiling doorways), it was very charming and provided us with all we needed. We especially enjoyed the front porch and outdoor space. I hope we can return some day.

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.
