                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Beaches, Beaches, Beaches! Best food anywhere. Matunuck Oyster Farm is a short drive away, past the Nathan Hale homestead. It is open for tours and is a very popular restaurant! Lots of things to do; we keep an expandable file of activities and sites to see. Antiquing, quilts, historical sites, come and stay a long while! (Did I mention 5 million dollars of Tiffany glass to be seen within walking distance?) See where Jackie Kennedy Onassis once lived. Take the tour of 10 lighthouses or the local trolley tour for a history narration and sightseeing. & historic Newport a short drive across beautiful bridges with quite a view! A real treat is in late August/early September, when harmless tiny bioluminesent jellyfish are visible at the very North end of the beach where the Narrow River inlets to the ocean. Neat to see the water light up at night as you gently step along the shoreline or kayak a little farther out.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: This is our family home, not just a beach rental. We are a busy family who have owned and maintained property for over 40 years. This house is also a year-round Bed & Breakfast when not rented. We love to share our home with respectful caring people.

                  Why the Owner Chose Narragansett:
                  It is perfect in every way for extended families, reunion of friends, business retreats. Two kitchens allow vegetarians and meat-eaters to cook their preferred ways yet eat together in the large dining room. Large yard for volleyball, badminton, croquet. Walk to everything. Plenty for children to do. Lots of good restaurants! Surfing, swimming, sunbathing. Beautiful ocean views in all seasons. You'll love it!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Police, fire, EMTs are only 2 blocks away. A great library, surf shop, top restaurants and the mile long beach. Ever get up early to see the sunrise over the ocean? Gorgeous! Full moon nights are breath-taking!
