Sea Glass Cottage


New England Cottage by the Bay, Wrap-Around Porch, Access to a Shell Beach

Room TypeRoom type
Entire home/apt

Sea Glass Cottage, a historic Victorian-style home, was built in 1876, and has been in our family for over 100 years. In 2008 we bought the cottage from our extended family, and at that time the cottage underwent a total restoration & upgrade. Sea Glass Cottage is located on the exclusive north end of Jamestown/Conanicut Island, on a quiet cul-de-sac, adjacent to Narragansett Bay, only a few yards to our pathway - with steps to a 'shell' beach with majestic views of the Bay. Jamestown/Conanicut Island is rich in open space and a tour around its rural roads reveals farms, salt marshes, and stunning water views. Jamestown is full of hidden treasures such as small beaches and winding trails. Beavertail Lighthouse juts dramatically into Rhode Island Sound from a rocky southern tip of the island. Jamestown is home to three marinas and many residents and visitors are sailors. Narragansett Bay is ideal for sailing, fishing, and kayaking. The village center is Narragansett Avenue, which runs from east to west with a marina at each end, and is lined with restaurants and stores. When you're not at the beach or on the water enjoying the ocean views, this small island town offers museums, art shows, concerts and sporting events. Newport makes a great day trip, just a ten minute drive across the bridge or by ferry in season. Providence is a 40 minute drive and offers a great cosmopolitan contrast. Visiting a nearby island is always fun. Its only a 30 minute drive to Point Judith to catch a fast ferry to Block Island, or 20 minutes to Quonset to catch the fast ferry to Martha's Vineyard. And for a more adventurous trip, it’s a two hour drive to Hyannis, MA for the fast ferry to Nantucket, & an hour drive to Woods Hole, MA to catch a slower ferry to Nantucket. Guests will have access to all parts of the property except the garage. Guests can call, text or email us at anytime there is a question or concern. We have a cottage facility manager, who lives locally in Jamestown, who will be available during your stay to answer any questions, or resolve any facility issues guests may have regarding our property. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The cottage is on a quiet culdesac - with off street parking within our long driveway. Due to our narrow street, we prefer no street parking along the front of our property. After being in the family for hundred years, Wallace & I took full ownership of our family's historic summer cottage in 2008. Since that time, with the help of a highly respected local contractor, our present facility manager, we have completed a full renovation of the cottage, and are presently continuing to enhance this historic property. Our deck in the backyard was added to our spacious backyard in 2018 - offering Bay views through the trees, w/ offset umbrella, a dining set for six & two chaise lounges. Our motivation has always been to restore the comfort, beauty and charm back to the cottage, so that over the next hundred years, our children, and their children, can continue building treasured family memories. All rooms are filled with a mixture of family antiques & comfy cottage furniture. Upstairs we have two bedrooms with heirloom full beds, one bedroom with a King bed (which can be broken down into two twin beds if requested at booking), and in the old nanny quarters, a twin daybed. On the first floor, in our 'once upon a time' music room, we have a queen sofa bed. Our cottage continues to be our family’s ‘happy place’ - where we take joy in making extra special memories. And we are happy to share this magical place with our welcomed guests.
