About Beth Riccio

My husband and I have been very lucky to live in a Victorian home in a beautiful seaport town that others would covet. We love the Historic District and it's charm. Bristol is centrally located to two major cities, Boston and Providence and yet remains very much a small town. Jim is one of the few who are considered 'Native' to Bristol. I on the other hand am a 'Wash Ashore', but couldn't love it more.

I am a retired Culinary Arts Instructor and my husband is a Mechanical Foreman for the Rail road. We have 5 children and 11 grandchildren who love to come spend time here with us. We Have a sail boat and never leave Narragansett Bay but enjoys our quiet days on the water. The beaches of Newport are about twenty minutes away and we spend many summer days there with the kids. We have a winter residence in Myrtle Beach and enjoy the ocean there as well.

Beth Riccio purchased this house in 1978

Why Beth Riccio chose Rhode Island Coastal

If you are coming to town for many of the destination weddings or to visit relatives we can provide a comfortable private place for you. With a full kitchen you only need to eat out when you choose to. You can walk to almost everything that Bristol has to offer from our home.

Wonderful apartment in history filled town close to the water and dining!

  • 5 of 5

Beth and Jim were marvelous and charming hosts who have a beautiful apartment complete with full kitchen and bath. Bristol is an amazing town with wonderful shops, a picturesque waterfront, w restaurants and coffee all within walking distance. The apartment itself is very spacious and quiet with plenty of room to spread out. In addition, there is a beautiful sitting area in the backyard with a fireplace table top that was perfect to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Beth helped us the first evening to find a spot to eat since we arrived so late which was very helpful. We really enjoyed talking with Beth and Jim and hearing about the history of the home and the historic district it is apart of. Loved our stay!

Comfortable, good location, good value

Bristol is conveniently located to visit RI. This property is within easy walking distance of the water, restaurants, etc. the property owners are very nice people. It is on the 2nd floor, so you need to be able to go up stairs.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for a weekend in June when we were in Bristol for a friend's wedding. This house has a great location on a quiet street within walking distance to everything in town. The apartment itself is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Beth was a wonderful host who gave us great recommendations on places to go and things to do in the area. She even gave us an extra gift bag she had so we could use it for our wedding gift, which saved us a trip to the store and was much appreciated! I would recommend this property without hesitation and will look to stay here again if our travels take us to Bristol in the future.

Located between Providence and Newport, RI, Bristol is a seaport destination known for sailing, antiquing and fine restaurants. A cozy historic town that is tourist friendly. It is a twenty minute ride to all that Newport and Providence have to offer, while staying in a small waterfront town. Many restaurants, bars and museums are within walking distance. Bristol is very much a sailors haven and well known for some very well known restaurants.
