INSPIRED BY NATURE: WEDDINGS & SUMMER AND FALL RENTALS

Jamestown (Conanicut Island) Estate Rental Photos and Description

Weddings plus Summer Rentals: 2 Lofts, Cabin and Shepherd's Hut

Dragonline Studios is a completely unique rental property, not only for Jamestown, but in all of Rhode Island. Currently we are renting both for weddings up to about 150 people and in between weddings, a small residential cabin plus our new Shepherd's Hut. The Cabin and Hut will be available for rent as a unit starting May 15th.

The overall site consists of a three story, loft like studio building and three small outbuildings. All afford remarkable views of the mouth of Narragansett Bay and beyond.

Cabin: The small Cabin at Dragonline is the original structure on the property and is likely over 100 years old. Today, it has been extensively remodeled. The main room has a queen sized bed, cable television, an easy chair, two bureaus, a small kitchenette and a gas fireplace. In the tiny tower is a small bathroom and shower. The Cabin faces both Ocean Drive in Newport and Block Island across the entrance to Narragansett Bay; sitting only yards away from the rocky seashore below. The cabin has its own fire pit, also facing the water and a small island. Enough trees and foliage cover the side of the cabin facing Ft. Wetherill State Park that one feels a great sense of privacy and peace.

Shepherd's Hut: The Bespoke Shepherd's Hut was made for us in 2013 by The Yorkshire Hut Company in England. It is their first custom made Hut to arrive in America. It is a small Gypsy cart that sits upon iron wheels. Inside, on one end, is a queen sized bed with a bunk above it, and on the other a small stereo, wood stove and closet. In between is a table and chair. The Hut is wired for electricity and radiant floor heating, but has no bath or running water. It is a simple moveable structure designed for sleeping, listening to music, reading and enjoying the sea air.

Together, these two structures can sleep four to five people in comfort, though the bathroom in the Cabin must accommodate both structures. The larger studio buildings near by will remain in use and are not part of the cabin rental.

Wedding and Events: Two large loft spaces are rented for weddings in the glass studio building seen in the pictures. The top floor loft affords an unobstructed view from the Newport Bridge all the way across Aquidneck Island beyond Castle Hill to Block Island, Point Judith and Beavertail. This room is ideal for sunset activities; cocktail parties, photo shoots and wedding rehearsal dinners. It also has a small living room area with a powerful stereo and futon couch. The downstairs loft is a large relaxed living area with bathroom and kitchen, with dramatic 12ft window views of the harbor entrance.

Adequate event parking is available next door in Ft. Wetherill State Park. A large lawn easily provides room for a tent and other facilities.

The rental also includes access to a private sand beach, a rocky cove and excellent seasonal fishing locations along the rocky shoreline, plus significant privacy. Families seeking summer rental accommodations have options: a cabin, hut, and two lofts.

Multi media artist, writer. Have lived on this property off and on my whole life.

Duncan Laurie purchased this estate in 1968

Extraordinary beauty and solitude. Large open loft spaces plus small intimate sleeping quarters. Mooring available. Plentiful parking near by.

Dragonline provides an extraordinary sense of contact with the sea, the air, the sky and the earth. It is surrounded by Nature in every sense. Huge ships and beautiful sailboats pass before you day and night. The lights of the Newport Bridge sparkle at night to the north, and Block Island peeks above the horizon to the south. As such, the property is ideally suited for weddings of 50 to 150 people who want privacy with the ocean in the foreground. There is plenty of room for a tent, toilets, caterers plus two floors of indoor dining or simple relaxation. It has been an ideal photo shoot location for clients J. Jill, Abercrombie, and Ralph Lauren.

"AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE IN JAMESTOWN"

"An Unforgettable Experience in Jamestown"
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were lucky to find a property this unique, artistic, and overpoweringly beautiful to host our wedding. As designers, we had difficulty finding a location that would provide differentiation and a truly memorable experience for our guests. We were so lucky to have found Dragonline, our stay was all we could have hoped for with unexpected touches...a true pleasure.

The property is private and surrounded almost entirely by water. Walking up to the top floor offers striking offering sunset views over the bay and the Newport bridge which is illuminated at night. We watched modern and classic vessels sail the bay as we celebrated on the well lawn overlooking the water. The interior matches the landscape with material touches that show a thoughtful and planned build and tall windows that don't mask the exterior view.

Duncan is a pleasure to work with and helped meet with our wedding service representatives as we are out of state. We are certainly revisiting Dragonline and Duncan since its an unforgettable part of our lives that we'll want to relive.

Owner's Response: This fall wedding party was relatively small and in not needing a tent, were able to take maximum advantage of everything we offered on the site, including an off season discount on the daily rate. The joy they took in their wedding here was nevertheless a huge pleasure for all involved.
