The schoolhouse is something special! We (a German family of four with two teen kids) liked it a lot. There is a special atmosphere and you can learn so much about American one-room schools. Yet, there is everything you expect to find in a modern house or apartment. The area is fine, too. We enjoyed exploring Tiverton and its surroundings. You can have very good meals at the Boathouse, wine tasting is possible at the nearby vineyard and of course Newport is not too far. We wo
We have stayed at many fine VRBO locations but none compare to the amazing quality of this one-of-a-kind home. The kindness of the property owners began with our very first inquiry of their property and continued throughout our stay. We only wished we had stayed longer.
“Fun for families, lots of outdoor space, gardens lovely, house full of history. A/C works great, upstairs even cooler than down. Remodeled upstairs baths very comfortable, plenty of towels and beach towels. Host very friendly and available. Road a little busy but area very nice!
This is a magnificent, historic house in a picturesque New England village -- what more can we say? There is a nifty coffee shop down the road, and the spot is nestled in a vibrant countryside of farm markets lobster shacks, ice cream stands and gorgeous scenery. We had a wonderful weekend -- our thanks to Kristin for being so welcoming!”
We loved our time in this little hideaway, full of charm and history. We liked the slower pace, and the realative close proximity to crazy busy places like Newport. The decor was lovely and charming. We enjoyed our indulgent meal at Evelyn's drive thru and coffe at coastal roasters. It's a place you'll never forget visiting.
This lovely and intriguing historic house was the perfect background for our roommate reunion (35 years!). All of the rooms were comfortable and light. I would have been happy spending the summer in mine. The kitchen and bathrooms are new and beautifully redone. We found ourselves enjoying the patio space each morning and evening. There is so much to see locally. We enjoyed Goosewing Beach, several of the Audubon sanctuaries, kayaking on the river, Gray's Ice cream, and sever
This home was so much more than we expected! Clean, spacious, well equipped, and beautiful! Felt like royalty in the master bedroom, with 4 posted bed, wet bar, sauna, steam shower and Jacuzzis tub. The down stairs was gracious and comfortable. We will definitely return! Kristen was responsive and hospitable...great vacation spot!
Perfect place for us! The size of the house worked well for our family, the location was perfect, and we appreciated staying in a historic part of Rhode Island. We appreciated the closeness of restaurants, coffee shops and outdoor recreation spots. What a joy to be able to spent time in such a beautiful, historic home. Kristen was johnny-on-the-spot with communication, information and our need for a coffee pot :) And the eggs! Farm fresh and delicious. Thank you very much.
