We had a phenomenal stay with Lifen and Dan. Cute house, beautiful lake and fantastic hosts. Lifen gave us great tips on the waterfire festival in Providence, and Dan was super helpful with lake activities. Would love to come back!

Lifen and Dan made our stay so delightful. From our first few minutes, they were hospitable and generous with everything in their home. The house was beautiful, decorated well, and perfectly situated with direct access to the lake. Dan and Lifen gave some good advice for a romantic dinner in East Greenwich. My wife and I definitely took advantage of the relaxing atmosphere and wish we could have stayed longer. We definitely plan to visit Rhode Island in the next few years, and would absolutely stay here again.

Heaven! I was looking for a spot to unwind, enjoy some peace and do some exploring. This was it! Lifen and Dan were tremendously gracious and helpful. I felt very welcome from the moment I arrived. Their property is beautiful. I asked a lot of questions about things to do and they never hesitated to help me in any way! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay!
