About William & Diana Welch

Hello & Welcome to RI! We used to vacation here since the 1980's My dream was to have a small house on this saltpond.It happened one day. I used to tell my daughter who was young then that the Quonnie was her giant aquarium. She was fascinated with the sealife (which became an educational tool) teaching her about the shells ,birds,horseshoe crabs, etc.She loved treasure hunting,making sand forts,and wading in the shallows.

All of us enjoyed swimming, boating and all the numerous activities we could do.

This area has many events & activities such as Music Festivals, Pow wows,Casinos flea markets,unique shopping, eateries,biking, hiking, tennis, golf even miniature golf, music- movies on the beach & lots of area attractions. The numerous beaches are the best and the water is clear.

This is Paradise to us! .We love it here.We never run out of things to do or places to go.

Our Favorite Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This is the best vacation spot ever! It is right on the beautiful Quonnie Saltpond. The scenic waterviews are just gorgeous the all the decks & from every room in the house! It's like the saltpond is your backyard! Awesome! We enjoyed fresh clams casino, we got ourselves in the pond. Boating, beaching,sun & fun is what this is all about for us. There's so much to see & do.
The house is magnificent! Mostly all windows on the waterside-tremendous views and sunsets.What a home to entertain friends & family. I loved the decor! Hardwood floors, catherdral ceilings w/wood beams,natural wood trim, sunroom--plenty of room. The kitchen was state of the art and a joy to cook in.Loved the breakfast bar. You can easily grill out & entertain on the deck overlooking the panoramic view of the Quonnie.
We loved this area. Went to casinos, toured three of the Newport mansions, took the harbor tour and even squeezed in Mystic Seaport & Aquarium. Next time we want to go to Block Island!
FYI-Best place to get some souveniers is the weekend flea market at Gen Stanton Inn :)
