Stately renovated 1842 home with large light-filled guest room, queen bed, private bath, HDTV, WiFi & central air. Steps to downtown Wickford and harbor. 1 mile to town beach. 15 minutes to Newport, Narragansett & Airport. Walk to breakfast spots.
One thing unique about this house is unlike many historic properties, our guest room is big with tall ceilings and large windows. Even the guest bath is pretty big.
In addition to guestroom and attached private bathroom, you are welcome to the parlor, living room, front sitting porch and large back yard. The kitchen is kind of ours, but we will leave a fresh thermos of coffee outside your door at 7:30am. Plus Cynthia leaves a dish of fresh-baked chewy chocolate-gingerbread cookies in your room. Outside there is a park just steps away with basketball courts, 2 tennis courts and running path. Nice places to walk all around - including historic village and a rather hidden grassy conservation area.
We work out of the house, so we are here if you need us. As far as interaction, that is up to you: you want privacy? We'll stay away. You want to get to know us? Great.
One of our 10 guests requested disposable ear plugs for road noise. The guestroom is facing the road into town, and you will hear a little morning traffic. Most people are completely fine with this, but if you are a light sleeper, or you're used to complete quiet, you might prefer a quieter location. Also: If you want, you are free to borrow our two mountain bikes.
We prefer you first check in before 10PM – we like to greet guests vs. just leaving a key. Also if you do know that you will be late, please call or text – just so we're not hanging around. Otherwise, come and go as you wish. No smoking and sorry, no pets. We have 2 kittens, but we keep them away from guest areas, unless you ask to see them.
Welcome, my wife and I bought and totally renovated a wonderful Greek revival just a short walk from the historic town of Wickford. We live and work out of the house, but at over 3000 sq feet there is plenty of room for privacy.
We are both in Marketing, but our real passion is home renovation and decor. We like to cook and have a large open kitchen. We're also pretty easy-going, just tell us what we can do to make your stay special.
