2 bedroom, 2 bathroom steps away from everything Newport has to offer
About Lindsay Fair
I'm a local Newporter and avid beach goer. I'm happy to give tips on where to go and what to do to get the most out of your trip to our beautiful City-by-the-Sea.
Why Lindsay Fair chose Yachting Village
Newport is notorious for its amazing waterfront restaurants, shopping, nightlife....AND impossible parking in all of the areas you want to be in. This property is in the heart of all of the action, so once you arrive, you can park the car and enjoy it all, steps away. Despite it's proximity to Thames Street, our street is quiet and peaceful, so you can fully relax in this light-filled home.

Great location, not clean.
The location is fantastic. The house is cute and could be a five star property with more oversight of it. Seems like a cleaning company is overseeing the condition of the property and not doing a good job. When we arrived, this is what we found.
1. The carpet had stains.
2. The furniture is stained.
3. The guest bedroom floor was not vacuumed
4. The mattress pad in the guest room was ripped and deteriorating.
5. The egg shell foam in top of that had holes.
6. The master bedroom had coffee splatter on the wall.
7. The master bedroom bed had pink ink all on the sheets that the bed was made with.
8. The closet in the master bedroom had blankets, comforters thrown in it.
9. The bottom of the shower curtain was moldy.
10. The hand soap on the counters in each bathroom was empty. It's clear you can see it just by looking at it.
11. The coffee maker had a used pod.
Lindsay the owner, was very responsive to us. She came over the next day with new linens, brought a bottle of wine, agreed with everything we showed her and arranged to have the house cleaned while we were out.
I cannot stress enough that the location is great and the house could be also if someone paid more attention. This is our first time staying in a vrbo, we usually stay in high end hotels and thought this house would be equivalent. It definitely has some wear and tear but you cant beat the location. Just in case you are like us, we will probably go back to staying in hotels where you dont have to bring your own toilet paper, shampoo, wash your own towels and make your own bed each day.
Overall, location and Lindsay were great. Very little effort can make the interior great also.
Great place. Only 2 issues-
All the rooms smelled moldy when we arrived. It took a couple of days to resolve. We had to keep the windows open.
No back up toilet paper
So sorry to hear that the house had an odor when you arrived. We had a very wet spring in Newport. I will alert my cleaning team to the lack of extra toilet paper.
This property is ideally situated to the wharfs, shopping areas, and mansions which made it super convenient! My three sisters and I enjoyed the lovely Newport cottage-style house!
Memorial Day Weekend Family Get Away
Great house in a great location. We parked and walked to everything. Easy walk to town and even walked to Breakers Mansion. Lindsay was helpful in answering all questions prior to arrival. House was clean and just like the photos. Can’t wait to visit again.
Lovely Yuletide Escape
Our family spent Christmas in Newport at this lovely, cosy home, and found it sparkling clean, convenient, and comfortable. An added bonus was the lovely Christmas tree with lights (and gifts of chocolate under it) the owner left for us! We would highly recommend it to anyone.
The house is located downtown but far enough away from the bustle of Thames Street and is perfect for a small family or two couples. The main living area is open with plenty of comfortable seating. The bathrooms are clean and very nice. The only thing is that there is not a lot of outdoor space, but there is a barbeque grill which we used.
The Cottage is located in the heart of the Yachting Village, home to Newport's best restaurants, shopping, bars, and nightlife. Especially popular is Cafe Zelda, which is a fantastic restaurant and attached bar at the end of the street. Look for travelers from all over the world popping in off of their yachts for a glass of wine and good conversation! New York Yacht Club and the historic Ida Lewis Yacht Club are a nice morning stroll away, along Newport's gorgeous waterfront park. Hop a water taxi at the nearby pier and be anywhere in Newport in minutes!
