  • More than satisfied

    "The place was perfect, as was the location! The beds were comfy and the shower was great! Our only surprise was the dorm-sized frig. We would recommend Flo's Clam Shack near Easton Beach as well as Benjamin's in Newport. Both offered great food in a relaxed atmosphere. We would highly recommend this place!"

  • Dog Friendly Family Reunion

    "Grew up in Pawcatuck, CT, and now our entire family is spread out across the country...Virginia, Colorado, Maine and California. We yearn to be back in the area, and try to rent a vacation spot every year or so. We chose this Weekapaug home for it's beauty, charm, seclusion and of course, pet friendly! My husband and I were driving from Denver with our Golden Retriever, and my sister was driving from Virginia with her Yellow Lab. The rest of our party included our mom (79) and sisters/brothers in law. We found the home to be just as advertised, very quaint and welcoming. The yard is gorgeous, with plenty of room for the dogs to romp. The deck offered lots of relaxing seating, as there is also a bench wrapping around the deck. There is no home to one side of the property, so it is extremely quiet and private. We met our neighbors through the back yard, as they have two young kids that wanted to play with my young nephew...they were delightful! We found out that our mom went to high school with her mom, and knew many of the same people. Small friendly world! The kayaks (my personal favorite) were wonderful. We did have to transport them down to the pond, but the guys didn't mind. We would paddle out a ways and beach them, to walk to our own "private" beach...so gorgeous...saw beautiful Egrets along the way. The kitchen was more than adequate...my brother in law found two old rusty cast iron pans that he decided he would bring back to life. He seasoned/refurbished them (he is a foodie) and then cooked us amazing foods in these absolutely beautiful pans! (Jane, hope you like how they look now!) The items in the beach box at Fenway were great: plenty of beach chairs, toys, umbrellas. We tended to frequent Weekapaug beach instead, as it was basically empty since kids were still in school. Loved Weekapaug, the house, the area and the beaches. Great vacation!"

  • Elegant home in perfect location

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this elegant home. The entrance was warm and inviting, the living and dining rooms were comfortable and maintained with the grace and style of the late 1800’s. Breakfast was delicious and well served. But most of all, the service related to our reservation with late arrival and timely breakfast allowed us to begin our day on schedule. The process was smooth and convenient. In the evening we were able to walk to downtown Newport to enjoy the sights, shops and restaurants. Then we walked back to the quiet neighborhood for a relaxing rest. Great job! I would definitely stay there again!"

Prudence Island Travel Tips

Prudence Island Vacation Rentals for a Unique Vacation

Prudence Island, one of the largest islands in Narragansett Bay, is in Rhode Island. Part of the town of Portsmouth in Newport County, it sits in the center of the bay. From its early history as an agricultural area, it is now a major vacation area. The main vacation areas are Prudence Park, Broadway, Bristol Colony, Sandy Point, Homestead and Warnerville. The moderate climate makes Prudence Island lodging an excellent place to live or vacation. It has its own airport, T. F. Green, and is within an easy distance of major international airports, including JFK in New York and Newark New Jersey. There is an Amtrak service from Boston or New York. The main road routes include Interstates 95, 195 and 295. There is no road link to the island so the ferry is the only way to get on and off this charming island.

Prudence Island Lodging Is Just Ferry Ride Away

Take the ferry from Bristol to Prudence Island vacation rentals and leave your cares on the mainland. This island is one with a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of activities. The island’s lighthouse, Sandy Point Light, is one of the oldest lighthouse towers in Rhode Island but it is not open to visitors. From the island, many visitors will enjoy hiking around the island and fishing from its lovely beaches. Trails include both dirt and paved for hikers and include the area of Narragansett Bay Estuarine Research Reserve. Here, visitors can enjoy watching the resident birds. One of the most popular beaches is Sandy Beach on the west side. It is ideal for swimming.

A Prudence Island Accommodation near Historic Newport

In the region of Narragansett Bay, there are more than 30 islands to explore. On the largest island, Aquidneck Island is the charming town of Newport, known for its sailing and luxurious mansions. Many buildings here are influenced by various European palaces. Visitors are welcome to tour a variety of these mansions. The most famous mansion is that of Cornelius Vanderbilt II. Also open to the public is the Marble House, designed by Richard Morris Hunt. Newport’s historic downtown area attracts many visitors for its architecture, shopping, and restaurants. From here, visitors may like to take a boat tour or fishing trip out into the bay. Another popular activity here is to follow the Cliff Walk trail. This three-mile walk includes Eaton’s Beach where visitors can take a break to enjoy a swim. Those who enjoy scuba diving and fishing will want to visit Brenton Point State Park. Adams State Park is home to the museum of yachting and also a great place to discover the fun of sailing.

With all that water surrounding your Prudence Island accommodation, you will want to make the most of the area by taking a cruise of the bay or one of the ferry rides such as to Point Judith or Block Island. Of course, there is also the world-famous whale watching tours or perhaps a dinner cruise on a yacht. Racing enthusiasts can even cruise on one of the America’s Cup yachts. Anglers will make the most of the opportunities to go deep sea or inshore fishing but should not overlook that there are many places for freshwater fishing too. There are a variety of lakes and rivers in the region that offer excellent fishing, like the Blackstone River Valley. Wherever you are in the region, you will never be far from a golf course and many have spectacular ocean views.
