About Sara and Lance Minor

My husband Lance and I are avid windsurfers. We love the charm of Newport, the wide sandy beaches, and the friendly community.

Sara and Lance Minor purchased this house in 2009

Why Sara and Lance Minor chose Middletown

I have been in love with the Newport area for 20 years. My husband and I met windsurfing, and spent many a windy day on the shores of 3rd beach. We were engaged in Newport, and have spent all of our anniversaries there. Our dream is to eventually retire to this wonderful beaching and boating community. Briarwood Beach House (BBH) brings us one step closer to that dream!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great area within walking distance to Easton's beach! Most mornings were spent enjoying a cup of coffee while walking to the beach,. The house is very well maintained and VERY clean. Plenty of linens (bring your own beach towels), and plenty of room for our group of 8 adults We never felt cramped. The kitchen is stocked nicely (we cooked a lot), and the deck was perfect for our evening meals. Plenty of parking and ample space in the garage for our toys.....kayaks, paddleboards, etc. Sara and Lance are very helpful and welcoming! Great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review Debbie! We agree that the quick walk down Briarwood Ave to the beach is such a nice convenience. Folks really love our location! It is great to hear that you found our home spacious for your group and the important toys-like kayaks, etc! It is important to us to provide a clean, well-stocked home, so our guests can enjoy all the comforts of home, even when away on vacation. We would love to have you return to Briarwood Beach House again. Thanks again.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this property for my best friend's bachelorette! Even though the weather was rainy all weekend, we had a great time hanging out at the house, and there was so much to do close by in the area!

We loved this house and location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 daughters, 1 exchange student, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew) loved spending the holiday week in this house. The owners are super organized and helpful, the house had all of the amenities to make it feel like home, and the location was perfect. We were 2 blocks from first beach and we spent a good part of our days walking the beach and cliff walk with our children and dogs. There is so much to see in Newport!

The house was much more spacious than we expected. There were eight of us and we had plenty of room to spare. The house could easily accommodate 3 more people comfortably. The dining area and living area were also roomy and everything was in excellent condition.

Thank you Sara and Lance for opening up your home to us. Hopefully we will see you next year! Happy 2017.

Clean, cozy and perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Clean, beautifully-maintained and plenty of room for our three sons and their families. We rented for a long weekend and made beautiful memories sharing meals, walking on the nearby beach and along the gorgeous Cliff Walk! What a perfect -- and comfortable -- weekend! Excellent communication with the owners, great coffee pot and plenty of games, books, toy trucks and fun for all!

Amazing Summer Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I rented Briarwood Beach House for a girls weekend getaway. I was so lucky to be able to find an open house in Newport in the middle of the summer let alone this AMAZING House! Sara and Lance were both very friendly and helpful from the start to finish of our weekend. The house was very clean and had everything you could imagine you may need while relaxing at the beach! It was so nice to be able to sit outside on the deck and hang out in the yard after a long day at the beach. The house is in a perfect location, a short walk to the nearest beach and restaurants and a quick drive to down town. I would definitely recommend renting this house for a week! This was my first time in Newport and I am already planning a trip back in the fall!
