About the property

4 Bedroom/2 Bath Sleeps 2-6 Private Waterfront Home with beach!

Now taking reservations for 2017. Completely renovated 1910 beach cottage with 100' of private beach frontage with new dock available for additional rental directly on the Sakonnet River. This cottage offers the best of old and new and is as close to boat living as you can get while keeping your feet dry. 2013 renovations include: a brand new kitchen with 2' honed black granite counters, stainless appliances, fully renovated bathrooms, new outdoor shower, new cedar roof and siding, new plumbing, etc. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 of which have vaulted ceilings and nicely sunlit rooms.

Outside there is a new blue stone patio and 500 sq.ft. of decks for relaxing and entertaining while sitting right along side the ocean. The double lot provides plenty of yard space and faces due south for maximum sun exposure. The private beach is perfect for swimming, flyfishing, digging clams, paddle boarding,etc. Please note that the beach is a mix of sand and rocks so bring your water shoes. A private dock is on the property and available to rent for a small additional fee.

The cottage is 15 minutes from Newport's famous beaches and 20 minutes to downtown Newport. Day trips to Boston (one hour) and Cape Cod (45 minutes to the bridge) make this an ideal vacation destination.

About Grace

My husband and I bought this home from a friend who had owned it for many years. During several occasions we spent weekends and afternoons, sitting on the deck here enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of being on the bay, so when he mentioned he was selling we jumped at the opportunity. We have always loved this spot!

Grace purchased this house in 2013

Why Grace chose Portsmouth

This past fall we found out we were having our first child! We knew it would be the ideal setting to escape from Downtown Newport and have a nice little getaway with our growing family and guests from out of town. Excited about our new retreat we decided to completely renovate the property to make it as nice as our full time residence in hopes of using it often and having repeat tenants.

Hidden Gem on the Waterfront!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, well-appointed and tastefully decorated waterfront cozy home. Stayed for a week with my husband and two young boys this summer when we were visiting family. Boys loved catching hermit crabs right off the front of the house. Great place to kayak or boat too. It's very close to the freeway, but the noise did not bother us (it is a constant hum).
