We were celebrating our 5th anniversary and it was a our 2nd stay at BirdSong Cottage. Our stay was fr May 31st t-June 2nd. Price was right and in a quieter area of Newport. Very clean and quaint home with light and tasty breakfast. June, the inn keeper was great, givings us tips and restaurant suggestions and really took care of us. We actually had the whole place to ourselves. We stayed on the 3rd flr which is more private, simple no frills furnishings. 1 queen bed with two small bathrooms, one w/ a shower and sink. The other w/sink and toilet. Also we had a living room area with TV and french doors which led into the bedroom. Also note 3rd flr has sloped ceiling for those who are 6ft or taller. 2nd flr has two bedrooms which share 1 bathroom and a sitting room furnished. The 2nd floor had more of an antique feel to it.
Location was GREAT- 5 minute drive to Easton Beach-we happen to go there after 4pm and missed the $20 parking fee. June even loaned us her beach chairs. 15min walk to Thames st. and all the shops and restaurants. Would not suggest walking from home at night since the nearby streets are not well lit. We definitely will be returning!
