(15 mile paved bike/walk trail - runs from Bristol to Providence, soon to be expanded into Providence and further north). Barrington Town Beach is great for walking or just sitting to enjoy beautiful Narragansett Bay!

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.
