Property description

This home is a waterfront gem on Narragansett Bay, located on the neck of Prudence Island, overlooking Bristol Harbor to the east and Potters Cove to the west. We have our own stairway leading to a private beach below which offers a 300 lb. mooring and pulley line for smaller boats. On the south side of the neck (down our lane and across the street) is a lovely, quiet sandy beach perfect for morning walks or runs, skinny dipping and quahogging. Return from the beach to a relaxing outdoor shower. Our large backyard is surrounded by a 6 foot cedar fence leaving 100 feet of uniquely private uninterrupted, panoramic views of the bay. These bay views can be enjoyed off of the large waterside deck, on the sleepy hammock or in front of the firepit.

House Layout: Hardwood floors throughout, our home is a quaint, one-bedroom cottage with a queen-size bed and pull out couch which sleeps two. The kitchen is galley with granite countertops. The bathroom has a stackable washer and dryer and custom tiled shower.

The Basics: A ferry is required to get to and from Prudence. There are no shops or restuarants on the island. There is one general store and a few local farmstands. The house is two miles from the ferry homestead in a very private neighborhood. Prudence is perfect for sailing, boating, beach combing, walking and biking. Since many of the roads are unpaved it is suggested to bring your mountain bike. With a large backyard and sprawling views of the bay, our property is an ideal venue for small, private wedding ceremonies (2 so far!).

Bristol: The ferry leaves from downtown Bristol, Rhode Island. Bristol is an historic harborside town speckled with quaint shops, restaurants, bars and ice cream stands. Bristol offers a convenient excursion for our guests as it is not necessary to bring your car. You need only leave your vehicle at the ferry homestead and walk right onto the ferry.
