The space

Quaint 1900 Fifth Ward Newport cottage. This is a cozy and charming house with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths that will sleep 2-4 people. The location is great - walking distance to Thames Street restaurants, shops and bars. There are 2 parking spaces and street parking isn't difficult. It's a mile from Gooseberry Beach and a few blocks from a wonderful park that has a volleyball court, public BBQ grills, and a playground.

Guest access

Entire house except a closet in one of the bedrooms that will be locked.

Interaction with guests

I will be accessible by phone or email at all times if needed.

The neighbourhood

The Fifth Ward is where the Irish immigrants arrived in the 1820's to work as laborers. It retains its Irish roots with the Museum of Newport Irish History and Irish flags throughout the neighborhood. It's also the center of the annual Newport Saint Patrick's Day Parade. Situated just south of Thames Street, this neighborhood is within walking distance to all the restaurants, shops, cafes and bars. It has four parks and scenic views of the Newport harbor. A perfect location!

We had a great time! Meredith made us feel welcome by contacting us a few days before arrival. She was available throughout the stay if we needed anything. It was hot, hot, hot that week and a nice cooling fan came midweek!! the location is perfect. Easy to walk to everywhere you want to go yet off the beaten path. We absolutely fell in love with Newport! We will definitely stay again. ❤️❤️❤️

Merideth was terrific about communicating with us and made everything very easy. It's a quaint and comfortable house that was just right for me and my family.

I stayed at Merideth's home during the Newport Jazz Festival with my husband, son and my son's 2 grandmothers. We had a great time. The space was perfect for us. Convenient location near a store, a park and a spot serving some of the best fried chicken in the northeast! It was also not a long drive to Fort Adam's Park where the Festival took place. The only drawback is a lack of air conditioning but several fans were provided that provided sufficient circulation throughout the house. We would stay there again. Thanks Merideth!

We had a wonderful stay in Newport! Meredith was very responsive and thorough with her correspondence before we arrived. She made lots of great recommendations for places to eat, explore and discover during our stay. This house worked beautifully for our visit. It is in close walking distance to the harbor, restaurants, shops and a beautiful town park. We could bike to beaches, visit mansions and tour the town so easily. The house was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely recommend this house to friends planning to visit Newport!

We had a lovely stay at Merideth's Newport Cottage. It is clean, comfortable and neat and has wonderful light. Great location. Merideth is terrific with communication.

A great house in Newport to rent for a long weekend! A little farther from The Thames St hubbub than we anticipated but still within a reasonable walk. Super clean, but because it is an old house, there is no AC, just fans in the bedrooms. Would definitely stay again, just not in the prime hot summer months!

Location was great. Walkable to all that Newport had to offer - shops, restaurants, mansions. During our weekend visit, we never once used our car (which is nice because parking can be tricky). The place is actually bigger than it looks in the listing. Our family of two adults and two young kids had more than enough room. We also appreciated the proximity to the park and playground. House was immaculately clean and the big bed, where we slept, was very comfortable. Meredith was easy to work with and we would absolutely stay in her "cottage"'again.
