Why Betsy Gooding chose Mackerel Cove
Jamestown (pop 6,000) is unique on the Eastern Seaboard because of its incomparable beauty, relaxed atmosphere, and multiple access points to Narragansett Bay. Popular Newport is just 12 minutes away via the Pell/Newport Bridge. The Jamestown Ferry is a fun way to access downtown Newport and Rose Island in summer, or purchase an all-day ticket and spend a day on Narragansett Bay. You can catch the fast ferry to Block Island for a day of hiking or biking. Metropolitan centers of Providence, Boston and New York City are conveniently accessed via Interstate 95, Amtrak and TF Green Airport.
What makes this House unique
Travelers in the know often prefer to rent in laid-back Jamestown (on Conanicut Island), rather than bustling Newport. Jamestown is quieter, less expensive and lacks the tourist crowds and long lines of Newport. At the height of summer in Jamestown, you can bike to local farm stands, walk downtown to dine outdoors, and set up a lawn chairs to enjoy free outdoor Sunday concerts. You might find your own private beach at Beavertail Lighthouse, strike up a conversation with locals, or stay home, fire up the grille and stargaze in your own backyard. Children's activities include a good playground, library story hours, art classes, farm visits, and Beavertail Lighthouse & Aquarium. Newport is close enough by car, but a world apart.

Wonderful family stay in Jamestown
My extended family had a wonderful week in Jamestown at this house that is perfectly suited for groups. The kitchen was completely stocked, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and we really enjoyed the location––we walked to town for lunch, used the wagon to walk to Mackerel Cove, and made the short drive to Beavertail, kayaking at Fort Getty, and more. The house is stocked with everything you need and the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. Thank you so much!
Wedding Week at Waves
Our family gathered in Jamestown to attend a wedding, and we could not have been more pleased and comfortable in our stay at the Waves. All our requests were promptly and satisfactorily answered. Many thanks to Betsy and Val!
Thank you, Jim. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family at The Waves!
Beautiful Jamestown getaway-near everything
Our family had a need for a large, place to commemorate our mom’s life after her passing this year. Large family, needing comfortable, modern space with lots of meeting areas through a long weekend. This more than met our needs and is a place we will certainly return to in the future-wonderful home, open concept, lots of sleeping and living space with beautiful decorations, great garden, well-appointed kitchen, etc. Betsy was a great host and was quite responsive despite being away during our trip. Highly recommended!
Beautifully built & maintained.
Family Vacation 2018
This property was the perfect place to enjoy a family vacation. The location was perfect and the home was just beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to create wonderful meals and the dinning room table was just the right size for meals and evening games. The relaxing soothing sound of the Koi pond was an extra benefit. This was one of our families best vacations ever. Thanks for the memories!
Thank you for the fine review and for taking such good care of The Waves!
