Just got back from a 4 night stay in cottage #6. Only live an hour away, but with the covid 19 restrictions was looking to go away closer to home. Never been to this area of RI and wasn't disappointed. The cottage was adorable, just what I was looking for. Very comfortable, clean, private and perfect for a couple. Queen bed, private bath, cable tv, coffee maker, fridge and nice counter height table and chairs for breakfast. In ground pool which we didn't use, so many great beaches close by. Adirondack chairs sprinkled around, fire pit and grills for those who want to cook on vacation. Would definitely go back!

We stayed in the quaint cottage #8. Three of us surprised our friend with a Bachelorette night stay. We were greeted by the owners, Laurie and Dave. They are a charming couple offering us anything we needed. Their gardens are gorgeous, the pool area was beautiful and the cottage was impeccable. We went for a fabulous dinner at the close by Matunuck Oyster Bar. We went back to the cottage, went for a swim and sat out on the adirondack chairs. It was the perfect place for our overnight getaway! I can't wait to go back.

Glad we stayed there Our cottage was a good value and located close to outdoor attractions, including national wildlife refuges. Newport Mansions were within a reasonable 45 minutes drive. It’s probably the best choice in the area but did take some getting used to. Floor space and closet space were limited, but we were able to adjust. The room was clean and newly renovated. The queen bed was somewhat soft but okay. One side was right next to a window and wall, making getting out of bed from that side awkward. Outside light readily came through the curtain at night, so our sleep masks came in handy. We did sleep well, and it was quiet. Our #8 cottage had a good screened door. Some nights and early morning were cold, but the portable space heater in the room worked well. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker, but there were no table or chairs. However, a long coffee table in front of a sofa worked fine for having our own breakfast of cereal and fruit in the room. The TV worked well. It was nice to have a TV on at normal volume without being concerned about disturbing neighbors in an adjacent hotel room. The owners were genial and helpful. We intend to stay at Hathaway’s again.

The charming, airy and well-appointed cottages are near beaches, restaurants, shopping, and points of interest such as Watch Hill. The lush garden and inviting pool add to the peaceful atmosphere. The owner, Laura, is very friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay and have already booked future visits!

We stayed here from Friday to Sunday for my wife’s nephews wedding and loved it very much. We loved our cottage and the area so much we can’t wait to come back. Cottage was clean and just as advertised. Location was central to all we wanted to do. The beach was about five minutes away. Upon checking my wife was told about all the local eateries and they were also great. Beautiful grounds to just unwind and relax. Coffee by the pool in the morning. Can’t say enough how nice everything was.
