*********************************************************************
The Quonnie is one of the largest, deepest and most pristine of this areas saltponds. It is a tidal saltpond so that you can experience a difference of 2 to 5 ft. of depth as the tide goes in & out. The much sought after Quonnie is like a giant aquarium with lots of sand for playing or sinking your toes into. It's a large body of saltwater to enjoy and it's all a part of your backyard!(sunbathing,swimming, sailing, waterskiing, fishing, claming,etc.)The saltwater is clear and pristine.There is a breechway that goes out to the ocean w/a state boat launch,great fishing & beach at the end of West Beach Rd.
Block Island is only 20 minutes by your boat from here!(Or take the ferry over.) It has many estuaries for birds,plants, clams,fish, sealife.
In the Quonnie, Seals make their home here in the winter months. Large fish swim in & out of the saltpond. Several species of migrant birds can be seen. The resident Osprey's head out after raising their young.
A 50 lb. stripper was caught out back but many have been caught in the breechway. Having the saltpond in your own backyard is one of the greatest treasures & pleasures one can enjoy. I'm sure you'll agree once you experience it for yourself.

Block Island,The Race,Fishers island,Mason's Island, Watch Hill, Newport, Jamestown& Mystic Seaport are close by. There are various boating tours or land tours that are fun & educational.

About the owner: Hello & Welcome to RI! We used to vacation here since the 1980's My dream was to have a house on this saltpondI. And It happened one day! I used to tell my daughter who was young then. that the Quonnie was her giant aquarium. She was fascinated with the sealife (which became an educational tool) teaching her about the shells, birds,horseshoe crabs, etc. She loved treasure hunting,making sand forts,and wading in the shallows. All of us enjoyed swimming, boating and all the numerous activities we could do. This area has many events & activities such as Music Festivals, Pow wows,Casinos flea markets,unique shopping, eateries,biking, hiking, tennis, golf even miniature golf, music- movies on the beach & lots of area attractions. The numerous beaches are the best and the water is clear. This is Paradise to us! .We love it here.We never run out of things to do or places to go.
