Vacation on Indian Lake--a pristine 200 acre freshwater lake, less than 10 minutes from Narragansett Pier and the state's best ocean beaches. Swim, kayak, fish, and bird watch from your front yard. This waterfront vacation home is perfect for a family with children, two couples (each has their own bathroom), or as a romantic get-away for a couple that desires privacy. The lake warms up earlier than the ocean and the water stays warm well into fall. There are 4 kayaks for your use, a large lawn for playing volleyball, and a huge deck and BBQ for relaxing. Large windows overlooking the lake, cathedral ceilings and numerous skylights create an interior that is both bright and cheery. In addition to the large great room ,there is also a family room with sliding doors to the deck, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen and a laundry.
Lake House Community: The Lake House is located in a small, quiet community of private homes known as Indian Lake Shores. Although quite removed from the hustle and bustle of town, everything you need is nearby. Several large grocery stores and the many other shops and restaurants of Wakefield and Narragansett are only 5 minutes away.
Spring, fall, and winter vacations: The Lake House is a great vacation rental in any season. Come to the lake in the spring and enjoy the water when the ocean is too cold. The green of the trees' new leaves and rainbow of the colorful blooming flowers reflect off the blue water. September and October are also special times in southern RI. Indian Lake is full of wildlife as migrating birds stop on their way to winter feeding grounds. While days are usually mild, the cool autumn nights paint the leaves red, yellow, and orange and the lake reflects the riot of color that surrounds it. A wood-stove with gas logs in the great-room will keep you cozy warm as you sip your mulled cider. Of course, there is a full heating system to keep you toasty if you visit in winter to go skating on the lake.
Golf opportunities: When you vacation at the Lake House, you have plenty of choices for golf. Less than 3 miles away is Rose Hill Golf Club, a beautiful new 9-hole course. In about half an hour or less, you can be at any of 11 18-hole golf courses or any of 7 9-hole golf courses.
I grew up in the nearby village of Kingston. My father was a professor at the University of Rhode Island and my mother was a school teacher in West Kingston. My first swimming lessons were on Indian Lake and I spent many happy hours swimming and boating on the lake.
When my wife and I decided to purchase a vacation home, we knew we wanted to be on Indian Lake. It is perfect for swimming, kayaking, and fishing. The property has shade trees to relax under while enjoying the view and the lot is double wide with 120 feet of waterfront. Although it feels like we are in our own little resort, we are only 10 minutes from the beautiful salt water beach in Narragansett and just a bit further from the state beaches. Often, we go swimming in the ocean in the morning and then come home and swim in the lake. Later we fire up the BBQ grill and enjoy a nice supper on the deck.
The house is bright and airy, even on cloudy days, with views of the lake from most rooms. It is so comfortable, we always hate to leave.
