Beautiful Property
This is a lovely home on a beautifully landscaped property, close to downtown. It was perfect for our daughter’s wedding. The house had everything we needed and is incredibly well stocked. The beds are comfortable, lovely bedding and bathroom towels. I highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to experience Bristol.

Perfect home for a family celebration
This house worked out perfectly for our NJ family’s stay for our daughter’s wedding in Middletown. Just the right amount of rooms for 6 adults to be together, with spaces to be alone! We also hosted the rehearsal dinner outside in the beautiful gardens and patio. The Scarpino’s were very accommodating to let us do that, and even made additional improvements to the garden in preparation! This is a very updated, and well-designed home, with all the modern amenities, but still holds the charm of an1800’s house. Beautiful! Only thing I hoped was that it was actually on the water, as the photo on the site alludes to. However, the water views are very close, with great access to walking or biking at Colts State Park, as well as downtown Bristol. We really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you Dave & Diane (and property mgr Berta)

Perfect for wedding weekend.
The property was beyond our expectations! Beautiful private yard and patio, spacious interior, with gorgeous updated bathrooms . Close proximity to downtown Bristol and wedding weekend activities. So glad we selected this over staying at a hotel as our family could spread out comfortably . Flowers,a bottle of wine, and a personal note from the hosts awaited our arrival. Dave and Diane, thanks so much for sharing your home!

Wedding Celebration in a Bristol,RI/ Location, Location!
We rented at Copper Tree in Bristol, RI. We needed a large home with multiple bathrooms for the family. Copper Tree can accommodate 9 guests ( 4 bedrooms) and there are three large baths. Two of the baths have dual sinks. There are built-in seats in the showers. The bathroom renovations are incredible. The owners did not cut corners. Nothing but the best. All bathrooms have high toilets. A rarity in rentals. The kitchen is well stocked with pans, dishes, and utensils. The owners provide plenty of water, coffee and condiments to name a few of the items. We were too busy to cook and with so many wonderful restaurants minutes from the house we just ate out. It was too hot to enjoy the meticulous grounds, but we did make good use of the air conditioning which worked very well. Lastly, I want to mention that there are numerous sitting areas dispersed throughout the house with books and games. This house is a gem. It will not disappoint. It was difficult to leave. We hope to return.
