Barrington guest house description

An easy-care, sun filled shingled cottage in a quiet residential neighborhood. Great for a weekend getaway, or out of town guests, inlaws, or if you're in town for college visits. Clean, comfortably furnished, and available all year - heated and air conditioned. All cotton linens and hypo-allergenic pillows and comforters. Easy access to major roads leading to Providence/Bristol/ Newport/Boston/Cape Cod. Great walking or biking in immediate neighborhood - also close to East Bay Bike Path. (15 mile paved bike/walk trail - runs from Bristol to Providence). Barrington Town Beach great for walking or enjoying beautiful Narragansett Bay.

Cottage located in quiet neighborhood on mature landscaped property. On-site off-street parking, private entrance,and all living space on one level. Full kitchen, living room, dinette area, two separate bedrooms. Linens/dishes/cookware provided. Sorry - no pets permitted due to other guests who may have allergies. Glad to recommend area boarding kennels.

RI may be the smallest state, but open all year and packed with things to do and see. Great highway system, and lots of back roads too. Veteran visitors or first-timers always find something new to explore! Nearby Bristol and Warren are charming towns, great for exploring along the waterfront - also home to Blithewold, Roger Williams University, Herschoff Yachting Museum, many terrific restaurants, Providence (RI's capital) has highly acclaimed restaurants, Water Fire (in season), museums/arts events, Providence Childrens' Museum, Roger Williams Zoo, RI School of Design, Brown University, Providence College, galleries, shopping, outdoor ice skating in winter. Newport in summer filled with visitors from all over the world - fabulous waterfront, historical spots, and endless activities. Winter-time Newport far less busy and still charming. Famed mansions, unbelievably beautiful (recently renovated) Cliff Walk, Touro Synagogue, St Mary's Church, Intl Tennis Hall of Fame, outdoor ice skating, shopping!

Part II - Exploring RI: Within one hour's drive - historic Wickford Village, Little Compton, Tiverton, Watch Hill. Visit enchanting Block Island - a ferry ride away from the fishing port of Galilee (near Narragansett/Bonnet Shores), or a quick plane ride from Westerly/Watch Hill area. Northwestern RI (Woonsocket, Smithfield, Lincoln) has more rolling views and historic communities (Bryant University, Museum of Work and Culture). Just east from Providence (west on 195 are the towns of Barrington, Warren, Bristol - all waterfront communities with their own charms and activities. Minutes to New Bedford (Whaling Museum). From one end of the state to the other, max 1.45 mins drive time. Great for car touring or bicycling - several bike paths in area. Several 9 and 18 hole public courses with a few minutes drive - also, many good mini-golf and driving ranges very close by.

Overnight occupants at cottage limited to 4 people (including children) and 2 cars, and maximum occupancy on property at all times is limited to 8 people and 2 cars. No trailers, motor homes, or other towables allowed (bicycle racks acceptable). Can recommend nearby parks and public facilities if you are looking for indoor or outdoor large gathering space or need space for towables, hookups for rv's, etc. The online calendar for this property is updated regularly, and all inquiries answered as quickly as possible. If your preferred dates appear to be booked for this property, please contact us anyway - can put you on back up list in case of cancellation. Thank you for your interest and hope you'll email for more information!
