Our cottage is an easy 20 mn walk to Charlestown beach. It is basic and has a bit of an old feel to it (and it is a work in progress, and is priced accordingly.) There is a full kitchen and a decent BBQ. It has three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. The spacious screened porch is perfect for evening conversation, games and more! The lot is large and fairly private (more than any house directly on the beach). You may be able to connect to internet, we cannot guarantee it will work for you.
This is a beach cottage which we use off and on during the summer and fall and has everything you need for vacation. We hope our guests will find the cottage welcoming and calm. There is plenty of parking for two cars. The lot is large and a good place for kids to play. We are working on some landscaping, but it is basic. You will not be surrounded by loud vacationers' parties. We provide our guests with a parking pass to beautiful Charlestown beach (5 minute ride -- but it is also an easy 20 minute walk). It will not be "hotel clean,"but, rather, "friends and family clean".. this is our house, and we will have some of our clothes left in closets, but there will be plenty of room for your stuff.
NOTE: We have recently installed Internet and you can try to access it, but we do not guarantee it will work for you (the local library is a nice place to work if it does not work for you).
Zugang für Gäste
The entire cottage is yours. We will provide precise instructions for keys if we are unable to meet you in person. We will be available by phone if necessary and our housekeeper, Dee, leaves a few blocks away.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We will not be on the premise during your stay since we do not live permanently in Rhodes Island. But we have helpful neighbors and a housekeeper down the road, and are easily available by phone or email.
We also offer lots of recommendations in our little information booklet.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We like being in Charlestown and wish we could spend more time there! The area is really relaxing: perfect for beach lovers; runners;people who like evening walks on the beach, and for disconnecting in general. But, there are many things to do (apart from the beach!) within a reasonable distance. We have plenty of info on the area including Newport, wildlife refuges, restaurants and eateries, ferries etc. Reasonably good surfing areas are about 15/20 minutes away. We find that it is easy not make our house an inexpensive vacation since you will have free beach parking and a full kitchen,
Enjoy the area! We ask that you do not smoke inside (but you are free to smoke outside of course).. No additional overnight guests than the ones we have agreed on ... four people max enforced. Because the cottage is in a residential area, we trust that our guests will respect neighbors and not hold loud gatherings. We prefer no animals -- maybe a quiet small dog.
I am a prof of French at Hamilton college -- I am well traveled , like cinema, running, gardening, cooking. My husband Larry is the owner of a small café that serves superb vegetarian food, coffee and pastries. We try to respond thoroughly to potential guests' questions and hope to be responsible hosts.
