Additional Location Information

Flat shale rocks at the base of our neighborhood stairs are great for sunbathing, launching a kayak and fishing. Or launch yourself for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, or, for the stout of heart, surfing across our cove at Short Point. Heading out the front door in the opposite direction, bike the island, walk to Beavertail lighthouse, or just watch the birds, of which there is an abundance.

Beachcomb Hull Cove, or head south toward Beavertail along the water's edge. This walk becomes quite dramatic and will require retracing your steps before long.

historical information: This neighborhood was originally developed for and by fishing enthusiasts prior to the 1950's. Many of the houses subsequently incorporated the original fishing houses into their more modern renovation. This house was renovated in the 1950's by the then retiring owner. He and his wife built a large kitchen, a bath and two bedrooms onto the original fishing structure, and added central heating, making it one of the first year-round houses in the neighborhood.

Closer to the turn of this century, some of the older cottages were rebuilt into beautiful contemporary/traditional year round homes, or building lots were developed similarly. There are, however, still some of the traditional cottages, of which this is one.

For a busy resort feeling, venture "downtown" for several upscale restaurants, a couple of excellent bakeries. Visit the harbor or walk along the Bay's edge. To ramp up the vacation feeling, venture to Newport via car, or choose the Jamestown/Newport Ferry. At the end of your evening, retreat to the relative tranquility of Beavertail.
