Who We Are
"My wife and I are avid adventure travelers, who like to explore new countries and cultures. We have grown up and been around water all of our lives. Having settled in the upstate NY Albany area, we enjoy skiing in the winter and the local lakes in the summer, but missed the open water. Getting a place on the water in Jamestown has been wonderful! There is much to explore and do on the island, and it's only a short hop over the bridge to all the bustle and activity in Newport."
Jon has retired from a long career in engineering sales of commercial building services and now focuses on finding, renovating and operating choice vacation rental homes in Jamestown. Jon continues to sail and race competitively when he can.
Mary Ellen continues her passion of leading STRIDE Adaptive Sports, a non-profit organization she founded as an outgrowth of her teaching career, providing sports and recreational activities for youth and combat injured veterans.
We love the Jamestown/Newport area. There is great sailing, biking, diving/snorkeling, and beaches. We enjoy the activities and sights of Newport, with the more relaxed atmosphere of Conanicut (Jamestown) island.
“We are a small owner / operator of three residential homes in Jamestown, RI, focused on providing exceptional vacation experiences for family travelers."
