New Color! Same Great Location! Always maintained at a peak!
Hear the historic Point Judith Light fog horn in the distance. Smell the salt air as you hear the surf pound the beach!
This 4 bedroom L shaped executive ranch is within a pleasant 10 minute walking distance to Scarborough Beach! Family room with open access to Kitchen presents great area to gather as you prepare your meal using ingredients freshly picked from the back yard herb garden. Nice clean hardwoods throughout, including a pleasant dining room, living room, and bedrooms that are conveniently on the same level, yet offset from the living area for those who may want to retire early. Also, a nicely landscaped yard with small private deck is available for your relaxation.
Fully furnished kitchen comes complete with dishwasher, refrigerator, oven/stove, disposal, and microwave. Fully stocked with utensils, dish ware, pots and pans, including a lobster pot!
An outside gas grille is also provided, along with cooking utensils for that special summer barbecue or steam.
Living room comes complete with digital cable TV, DVD, and Game Cube.
Master bedroom has king bed, digital cable TV, DVD, VHS, closet, and private bath with skylight window.
Three other bedrooms: one queen, one full size, and one with two comfortable twin beds (for the URI Winter Rental we convert these twin beds to a single full size bed).
Convenient washer and dryer at no extra cost.
And we offer optional AC in Living Room and Master BR in case you need it. The large units effectively cool the entire house if you catch a muggy day where the ocean breezes are not stirring through the large Anderson casement windows.
We have a nice COLD outside shower for convenient rinsing off of the beach sand, and a great relaxation area in the attached two car garage. There you can play foosball, darts, mini ping pong, or just relax if there is a passing rainshower.
The grounds are all manicured for your pleasure with a large side yard that can accommodate a game of frisbee, wiffle ball, volley ball, bocce, bag toss, or whatever you may come up with. It's also a convenient area if you are hosting a family reunion in the area. We can make a 10 X 10 Canopied Tent available to you for a moderate rental fee.
We have a nice patio table and chairs, with patio umbrella if you want to eat outside, or just relax at smaller tables on the small backyard deck, or flagstone patio by the entrance.
Point Judith Light Just Down Route 108: Pt. Judith Light and Coast Guard Station sit on the western entrance to Narragansett Bay. The original wooden tower was built in 1810, but was blown over during a storm six years later. A replacement stone tower lasted until 1857, when the current octagonal tower was erected. The upper part of the tower is painted dark brown.
The light is easily reached on Rt. 108, just past the turn-off to Galilee and the Block Island ferry. Turn right after Iggy's.
Newport Just Over The Newport Bridge: A fantastic day trip into the gilded age. Visit historic mansions such as Rosecliff or Marble House. Drive by the farm where the Kennedy's married. Fly a kite by the ocean at Bretton Point. Or just enjoy a restaurant and stroll along the waterfront. International Tennis Hall of Fame: Visit and see the history including the famous grass courts.
Golfing Venues: Rhode Island has some of the best golfing available in New England. Local courses that the avid golfer will enjoy include Newport National in Portsmouth, just on the other side of Newport, North Kingston Municipal, a great track that borders an Air National Guard site and the Bay, Winnapaug in Westerly is a nice Ross design, and Laurel Lane is a very playable course set in the countryside. Many more courses to choose from including Meadowbrook and Beaver River. Plenty of nine holers too!
Ann and Mike plan on spending their summers here someday but for now they have to pay for it while sending the kids to college! But they love sharing the beauty and relaxation of the house with people looking to get away for a smartly priced and more functional alternative to traditional hotel stays. Be sure to read the reviews the house has been receiving since they started renting in 2007.
We personnallly keep up the house and routinely update, and upgrade every year. Come back to see what is new this year!
Come and enjoy this great retreat. Perfect for families and couples reconnecting. Spacious yard areas, well manicured gardens including an herb garden you are welcome to use in your cooking, updated kitchen, wi fi, cable, and a great attached two car garage for playing darts, foosball, or mini-ping pong. Excellent for entertaining as well.
Neighborhood has no outlet meaning traffic is light and good for biking and running.
One street over has a well trimmed path that connects Greene Lane to Angell Road, which gets you to the beach in a pleasant 10 minute walk.
We love hearing the waves at night or in the morning when all is calm and fresh. You will too!
