About the property

A quiet haven in the heart of Downtown Newport with the most spectacular views!

This extremely desirable property boasts four spacious bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room and a half bath. The dining room, living room, kitchen and half bath occupy the first floor, which is the perfect space for entertaining family and friends. The living room includes a large sofa, two love seats, television, DVD player with a few movies and board games for an occasional rainy day. A large hall closet keeps your beach gear at the ready. The kitchen is fully loaded and includes stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher and microwave. The property is graced with hardwoods and ceramic tile throughout. The second floor contains three bedrooms, a full bath and utility closet with brand new stackable washer and dryer. The third floor is essentially a private suite, comprised of the fourth bedroom and attached full bath. With the exception of one full-sized bed, all bedrooms contain queen-sized beds. Ample closets and full dressers enhance each bedroom. And there are a few desks and chairs for those that need to “stay connected.” The pièce de résistance is the “fourth floor”…one of Newport’s most spectacular roofdecks, offering amazing views of the harbor and bridge. Some of the finest sunsets are experienced here, bar none. A quaint courtyard patio with grill, just outside the back door, completes the package.

Park your car in the private driveway (a guest pass for residential street parking for a guest’s car is also included) and forget about it, as you’re not likely to need it much, if at all here in Newport’s popular Yachting Village. Relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat, literally steps from some of the finest restaurants, nightlife and shops Newport has to offer. Beaches are a leisurely stroll or a lightening-fast car ride away. Tackle Newport’s Cliff Walk for a glimpse of some of the world’s finest and most historic mansions and pick a couple to see up close and personal. Visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the famous Newport Folk Festival or Newport Jazz Festival. Take a harbor cruise on the deck of an America’s Cup Yacht, hit the links JFK style or see Newport from the sky via helicopter tour. These are just a few of the amenities at your fingertips from this lovely property.

About Shannon Dunnigan

Why Shannon Dunnigan chose Yachting Village

A dear friend from college and I purchased this property after enjoying many summers In Newport. One summer we observed the spectacular renovations that went on with this property and had to make it ours!

What makes this townhome unique

I've spent a lot of time in Newport and have enjoyed many views. This roof deck offers one of the most spectacular views in all of Newport!

Guestbook comments from the owner

[This is from a Five Star Review of the property, posted on the "Newport Townhouse" page on Facebook.]

This beautiful, four bedrooom, townhouse is a gem and conveniently located just off Thames Street. Every restaurant we dined at was within walking distance. One of our favorites, Scales and Shells, is around the corner, just a few steps away. All of the rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and spacious. My favorite part of the house was the (quiet) large rooftop deck which offered amazing views of the harbor and some of the most beautiful sunsets. And you will never find nicer owners!

Beautiful Winter Trip

  • 5 of 5

The stay at Shannon and Dorothy's place was fantastic! Such a nice, clean, spacious well appointed townhouse. Fantastic location, close to everything Newport has to offer. Great to experience Newport in the "off" season. The house was easy to access, Shannon was very responsive to all of my questions! Thank you - would recommend to families and friends!

A Wonderful house in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this house very much. It has everything you need (it rained one day and we found an umbrella in the closet). The rooms are large but cozy, warm and welcoming. It is in a perfect location within easy walking distance to town, the marina and if you're really up to it, the cliff walk and the mansions. The views from the deck and rooftop are spectacular. We really felt at home and we can't wait to visit again!

Thanksgiving in Newport,

  • 5 of 5

Our three college age children all joined us for Thanksgiving in Newport. The house allowed everyone to have their own room plus ample space to gather together. The weather was mild and we were able to use the rooftop deck. We walked to everything on the wharf. We enjoyed seeing the mansions decorated for the holidays. The boat parade and block party were a lot of fun and we enjoyed hot rum toddy’s while we watched the boats all lit up for Christmas. The house was very well equipped and we enjoyed the bottle of local wine left for us when we arrived. Great time!

Adorable Townhouse in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 4 Goodwin for a girls weekend and had a great time. The place is very comfortable and the kitchen is really well equipped. The location was perfect. We could walk to most everything. We enjoyed the many outdoor spaces, including a large widows peak. I would definitely rent this townhouse.
