Our simple renovated farm house is in a residential neighborhood on 1.5 acres on the Saugatuck river. Kayak from the yard into beautiful Pt Judith Pond, relax in a hammock, cycle on the bike path, shop adorable Wakefield,or drive 5 minutes to a beautiful beach. Outdoor shower, ahhhh!

The Space

Charming but simple bedrooms with antique furnishings, sleeps 8 (two queens, two doubles). Renovated yet simple kitchen, with washer/dryer on main floor. Dining room, living room with DVD player, Apple TV and wifi. One indoor bathroom with shower, one outdoor shower, grill and hammock.
The 3 kayaks are down by the water, life jackets and oars are in the garage. Beach chairs, boogie boards, and a beach umbrella are also in the garage.

Guest Access

You will have the 4- bedroom 2-story house, the huge yard and dock, and plenty of on-site parking. You also have access to the Saugatuck river right in our back yard! We have 3 kayaks with life jackets and oars which you may use ( if you fill out a liability waiver. We are not responsible for any injuries!)

Interaction with Guests

You are on your own here, but we are available by phone for questions. There is also a cottage on the property that we use on occasion, so we may share the yard and we may see you there!

The Neighborhood

The house is in a residential neighborhood on the river. You can walk or bike to town (tho no sidewalks), or bike to Narragansett beach (part way on the bike path). The cute town of Wakefield has restaurants, shops, Brickley's Ice Cream (yum!), a bike path, a fabulous yoga studio, and a summer theater.
Within 15 min drive to URI , Amtrak, Block Island Ferry; 30 min to Providence or Newport.

Getting around

Note: we are NOT walking distance to the beach. But biking is great and it's a very short car ride to Narragansett beach. Or drive to any of the 20 or so beaches on the southern RI shore!

Other Things to Note

The yard goes down to the river where there is a dock (so hold onto your kids!). Not a swimming spot, but kayak into Point Judith pond and find your own little island and swimming spot!

  • We had a great stay here. The home is quiet and in a beautifully wooded area. When we pulled up we were greeted by rabbits in the yard and swans on the river. Wakefield has a cute main street with a natural food shop, restaurants and we also found a yoga studio for those in need of that! The beaches are not far, a five minute drive to several options. The garage had boogie boards and beach chairs that we were thrilled to have. We also found Matunuck Oyster Bar - a must for those that want local seafood!

    The house itself was great. The kitchen is one of the best stocked ones I've had a chance to use in a rental. All the tools, nice knives, and great pots and pans. The home is older and has a great feel. We really enjoyed the stay and will do it again when we are visiting the northeast!
