Jamestown is beautiful and charming, and a very easy drive to our destinations in Newport. It’s also very safe, and quieter and far less touristy than Newport. The proprietors lent us the EZ pass so that we would not need to pay tolls when we went to Newport.
The proprietors put tremendous thought and consideration into their guests’ stay. I always think a proprietor should stay in their own rooms to experience a guest’s needs when using the room. These folks must have done so, because the room had many thoughtful touches. This is an older house, and in addition to being comfortable, immaculate, beautifully decorated, and renovated with every modern convenience, they added many little touches that made our stay as easy as being at home. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the windows had blackout shades, the bathroom had nice towels, and plenty of hooks and surface space for our belongings. We had delectable sweet treats placed on our doorknob each evening, and the breakfast was made from scratch each morning and was also delicious. The breakfasts were just enough food, not too much, and not too little, with special touches like a mint leaf and coconut shavings in the seasonal fruit dish. It seems they thought of everything.
The proprietors were friendly and knowledgeable, but not intrusive. I wish we had been able to stay longer.
