Cozy and sweet

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the quaint cottage. It was clean, cozy and decorated charmingly. We would definitely like to stay here again when we visit my son at URI.

Quaint, great area

  • 3 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and answered all questions I had about the property in a very prompt manner. It was a very quaint setup, but perfect for just me, my husband, and son. It was great that it was small dog friendly as we just rescued a little guy. The outdoor shower was very nice to rinse off in after the beach. We were very happy.

Clean, cozy, great ocean breeze, nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed in this clean and cozy cottage and enjoyed it very much. Although the cottage is small, the layout is very good so it's pleasant. The beds are comfortable. There are plenty of windows for breezes and fans for additional ventilation. A lovely breeze from the ocean can be felt in the house, on the deck, and in the yard. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, eating at the large picnic table, and taking showers in the private outdoor shower. The shrubbery around the deck makes the deck feel private. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. We borrowed beach chairs for our trips to the beach. (Thank you!) Snug Harbor is a quiet, family neighborhood. It's a beautiful walk to the beach. The owner was very friendly and helpful during all communication. I appreciate the owner's willingness to rent the cottage for less than a week. I highly recommend this cottage.

The perfect place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised - clean and bright and just the right size for my husband, father, and me in the main house. My older son used the "shed" which is detached from the main house but only steps away and could come and go as he liked. In the area for my younger son's wedding, the cottage was conveniently located close enough to Newport, Jamestown, and Narragansett that we could easily access all the wedding venues, but still have a little peace and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the cottage in Snug Harbor to anyone wanting a beach getaway or a lovely alternative to the bustle (and high prices) of Newport. A delight!
