This farm has been in my family since it was built in 1812. My mother was born here as well as her father and grandfather. It was always a full working farm which included dairy farming as well as cornfields, etc. Completely restored and renovated to include the old and the new.
Very private setting, yet close to beaches, shopping, ferries, airport and trains
This is a beautiful home. And it is a home, not a rental property, and it makes a world of difference. You feel as if you're visiting your own family or dear friends, it's comfortable and welcoming. The decor of the house is wonderful, it's a classic old farmhouse with rustic wooden doors but with all the conveniences of a modern home. Wireless internet, cable, wonderfully outfitted kitchen, plenty of nooks to sit and read in or have a nap, VERY comfortable beds, bright, airy....this home is perfect for large families or a group of friends.
The house is set up so there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, then 2 of the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house on the second floor, and each has a bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms are in between, and totally convenient to the bathrooms, so it's a wonderful set up.
The surrounding property is glorious, open fields, beautiful trees, stone walls....there's a field behind the property that my daughter loved to ride her bike around. The outdoor shower was heavenly, we are already planning our own at home we loved it so much! It's also perfect for returning home from the beach.
The house is also very close to so many places, and easy car rides to Wickford center, grocery stores, beaches, etc. You can go on some wonderful walks as well, and we definitely recommend walking down to the Gilbert Stuart museum, the grounds are lovely, and for those interested in colonial era farms/homes/furniture, it's a lot of fun to take the tour.
This is a property for people who want to feel as if they are at home, and will treat it that way. The owners are lovely, and we are extremely grateful to them for opening up their home to us. We found we didn't want to leave the house much, and spent a lot of time there relaxing, catching up with our extended family, and eating! We will come back another time, and already miss "our" home away from home. Thank you Jane and family, you were so welcoming and gracious. Thank you so much!
This farmhouse was the most amazing home base for our family of 12. It was conveniently located to ever place we wanted to explore. It was comforting to have such a welcoming clean and thoughtful place to call "home" for the week. We loved the beaches but honestly could have stayed on site and had a great time just gathered around the fire pit and on the large porch looking over the fields where the dogs could run free. The lay out of the house is so ideal and beautiful. The large open kitchen, dinning and living room were perfect for our large family gatherings. We had everything we needed and more to feel right at home. The owners were great at communicating and making sure we had everything we needed. We felt as if we were part of their family with their generosity and help. And if they ever need a house sitter they can call us and we will be there asap! ;) Thank you again for making our stay so enjoyable.

This incredible, welcoming farmhouse exceeded all expectations I had for a home rental to house my extended family who arrived to celebrate my daughter's wedding. This cherished home is everything the reviews claimed it to be and has every amenity you might require. It is easily accessible to Newport and all RI destinations. The living spaces, both interior and exterior, are very spacious and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is the heart of the home and is exceptional for meals and entertaining. Dining on the porches and evening strolls about the extensive property are a bonus. The beds are comfortable and covered in hand-made quilts. The property was immaculate upon our arrival and the homeowners could not have been more accommodating. My family is spread throughout the U.S. and the opportunity to gather and enjoy one another's company in this charming, gracious house helped to make our celebration perfect. This home is truly a gem and I consider us very fortunate to have had the great opportunity to enjoy it. And thank you, Jane and Tom, for the memories. Cheers!
We have rented several houses for vacation trips before, but this unique home is by far, the best one yet! It is so beautifully maintained and blends historic charm with updated architecture and modern conveniences. The home is filled with family photos and colonial antiques, and the feeling of family bonds and generational love is everywhere. It was the perfect setting to celebrate our mother's 84th birthday. The kitchen is fantastic for family meals and entertaining. The home is roomy, and the grounds are absolutely spectacular. We enjoyed grilling on the patio just about every night and playing outside in the yard. The outdoor shower was a highlight!
The house is extremely convenient to many of Rhode Island's best destinations -- Wickford, the beaches, Jamestown and Newport. It's tucked away down a beautiful country road so you're away from crowds and traffic. It's the perfect vacation spot. We plan to return for many years to come!
