A very roomy townhouse with all the comforts of home. We loved the location and all the amenities! Our townhouse had a fireplace in the living room (which created great atmosphere for our lobster dinners when we used those Duralogs), the corner unit had a great view, a large patio with grill and table for outdoor dining, large bathrooms, 2 floors of space, ample kitchen and appliances, pool with bridge view, plus the water views of Narragansett Sound.
We ate at the townhouse a lot, using the full kitchen to cook. We didn't go out to dinner in Newport at all, so we might have missed some great places. But we found lobsters and clams at the state piers for so cheap (about $5 a piece or $1.70 a pound for clams) so why go out to eat??? We cooked seafood at the townhouse and had our choice of cold micro-brewed beer, it was a perfect gastronomic week on vacation!
An older resort directly on the Sound, but not tired. I highly recommend it! The living room is the most updated with lots of comfortable furniture. The king size bed was comfortable, the bathrooms were probably the oldest, but the master bath was very large and easy to use, a first floor guest room with 2 beds and bath, plus washer and dryer. It was all clean and we didn't notice anything that really needed to be repaired, I had no complaints at all. (No bugs in New England is a great plus!. That's a big thing I look for in notes from travelers, I don't want to bring anything home with me, so if you ever see any, write it in your reviews please.)
The Overlook was super convenient to get over to Newport via the Jamestown Bridge (You can buy tokens at 10 for $10 rather than paying $2 each trip). We had a great time exploring the area all around Newport, Jamestown and into the countryside of Rhode Island. Rhode Island is really lovely, relaxing and laid-back. There are great drives all aroudn the state. Exploring the New England homes or wineries are great ways to spend the day. One must is the Newport Storm Brewery. We went for their Friday night happy hour Tour and had a great time! You get four full pints of beer to sample, plus you get to keep the pint glass. We will definitely do that again. It was a delicious and fun experience. If you're into sailing or boating, Newport is an obvious choice for many activities around the sport.
I often think of this trip, the relaxing Overlook resort, the wonderful food of R.I. and hope to go back for sure!!!!
