Live local music, night clubs and dancing.
The Sweet Berry Farm is in walking distance from our house and is a working farm that sells berries, fruit, and veggies freshly grown and has a market with all the staples plus homemade breakfast, lunch and baked goods, ice cream and candies ...you will crave more. It also sells local art work and is a wonderful place to hang out. There are two local parks in walking distance one with swings, basketball court and other with benches that overlook the ocean view.

We are a family of 5 and live in the main house on this wooded parcel. Cris is a local attorney and Eric a local civil engineer. We have 3 school-age children, a Husky named Jewel, a calico named Sophie and 5 chickens. We have lived and worked in Middletown for over 20 years. Our children play soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball, ski and golf and we like the beach and ocean waves. They attend the local schools here in Middletown and like to walk to nearby Sweetberry Farm for ice cream.
Our house is a perfect vacation rental - it has an open floor plan and modern amenities for our guests to relax and enjoy themselves. Additionally, the grounds are completely landscaped with a variety of unique plants and flowers and creates a sense of serenity. The five acres of land includes grassy open areas and woods that creates a quiet and peaceful surrounding. This wooded lot is unique to Middletown and really makes you feel like you are far away and creates that 'vacation' feeling.
There are boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, bikes, coolers and towels for you to use on day trips to the beach. When you return an outdoor shower and hottub in the Green house await you as the sun sets you can relax and settle in.
There is a walking path in the woods that serves home to Great Horned Owl, Hawks and variety of other birds. The sun rises over the property shedding a blanket of light that is gorgeous every morning and makes you want to rise and shine! We raise our own chickens and share the egg production with our guests. Also have an organic home garden that you are welcome to pick from. In late spring/early summer the red raspberries bloom in abundance. In the evening the light filtering from the west as the sun sets is tranquil and settles you in every night. The house has windows from floor to ceiling so can have a great view of the evening sunsets.
One of my favorite pasttimes is to walking to the Greenway Trail of the Aquidneck Land Trust in early morning and logging in 5 - 15 miles. There is easy access to quite a few outdoor activities and nature adventures that makes you appreciate this central location.
