Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean, cozy, and very well equipped! It is very close to the beach and in a great location overall. The homeowners were very pleasant to deal with.

What a perfect cottage for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! My husband and I, along with my mother and daughter, booked this cottage for a 9 day stay to visit our son, who is a Marine currently training at the Newport Naval Station. This home was everything we were looking for and more! Quiet, safe neighborhood, well stocked kitchen that we utilized daily, two bathrooms and plenty of room for us to spread out (even when my son and a friend stayed over), comfortable living room and a lovely back yard with a deck, hammock and grill! It's so conveniently located - we were never more than 10 minutes from the attractions in Newport and even within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped (we even donated a rice cooker for future visitors - these Cajuns needed alot of rice), and we were able to prepare a giant pot of chicken and sausage gumbo to feed the 30+ Marines in my son's class (we brought it to them, of course!).

I only have two VERY minor complaints, not even enough to detract from an excellent rating - 1) the dining room lighting could use some help. Unless you wanted a romantic dinner, there was not near enough light for eating or playing cards, so we ended up moving a lamp from the living room. 2) the living room and dining room could use more seating (or maybe a different arrangement) for a house that can hold eight people. Again, these are minor things that we overcame with very little hassle! Just suggestions for future improvements.

Our only regret is that Rhode Island is a bit too far from Louisiana for us to visit more often!!! Highly recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I also appreciate your suggestions. I'll bring up more dining chairs and add a lamp or two, at least until we can rearrange that room in the off-season. Hope you can find your way back to the island soon. Oh--and thanks for the rice cooker!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this cottage and the entire family loved it. There is plenty of room for visitors and a fully stocked kitchen to cook and entertain. The back yard is perfect for lounging around and taking a break from the beach. The beach is just a short walk down the hill and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful at night. We are definitely hoping to return next summer!!

Cottage at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Ackerman Cottage. The owners could not be nicer and saw to all the needs of this lovely cottage. The beach was an easy walk to, several restaurants, seafood places and breakfast places available. Everything, including Newport, is within walking distance if you like to walk. The beautiful 3 mile Cliff Walk is only blocks away - all the amenities of Newport at hand. The cottage is set up very comfortable with a beach theme and house includes all the necessary things for a great vacation. Our week was all we hoped it would be. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a beach vacation in Rhode Island.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our few days in Newport and our stay at this well maintained and charming cottage. The decor is uncluttered and beachy, the beds very comfortable, a well equipped kitchen, a great backyard and wi-fi. The cottage is in a good location, close to lots of great beaches, restaurants, Newport sites etc. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and have thought of everything you may need for a good vacation. We hope to stay here again sometime in the future.

had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 4 kids stayed at the cottage for an extended vacation this summer and we were very sorry to leave. The house is in a great neighborhood, well located near the beaches and downtown Newport, nicely appointed, and roomy for a family our size.

The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. There is a large dining room and table. And we especially liked the private backyard with grill, picnic table, and deck with built in benches.

We look forward to staying there again.
