Rent This Rustic Island Cabin in Jamestown

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

This past weekend, we headed up the coast to Rhode Island for a three-day weekend. We'd been to Newport a few times before, but availability (and prices!) of accommodations in peak summer months compelled me to look a little further afield for a place to stay, and I am so glad they did! We rented this adorable cottage in Jamestown, RI from local artists, David and Jennifer Clancy, which we found on AirBnB.
The property is immediately adjacent to the Jamestown Windmill (built in 1787). The Clancys live in the old miller's house and rent out a small cabin at the back of their property (you can see its roof behind the windmill above). The landscape is so beautiful. I cannot stress how immaculate the grounds of their property are: The plantings are thoughtful, the stone walls are perfectly stacked, the lawn is ready for its close up--even the mulch around the trees is even perfectly placed.

The back side of the cabin has wooden decks, Adirondack chairs, and a firepit--plus, an incredible view of the Newport Bridge. To the right in the photo above, you can see the enclosure for the outdoor shower and sink (the bathroom is located in the couple's glass-blowing studio nearby).

Inside it's just a single room with a bed, a table and chairs, and a few conveniences like a mini fridge and a microwave, but it's really all you need for a weekend away. If you're headed up that way in the warmer months (the cabin has no heat), I would definitely recommend staying at this adorable little house.

Jamestown itself is a lovely village, and I preferred staying there to staying in Newport--it felt like more of an escape from the city, which was exactly what we needed.

Rental information on AirBnB. As of this writing, there are a few summer weekends left, if you're thinking of booking a trip.
