On Friday nights in the summer, there are free concerts at the "Gazebo" in the center of town, people bring there own chairs and refreshments and enjoy the view of the ocean and listen to the bands. The Towers hosts a couples "dance night" on Thursdays and that is open to the public. There are various festivals and art shows during the summer in the park and the famous "Blessing of the Fleet" 10K road race and festival on the 3rd weekend in July. Everything is centrally located and very enjoyable for people of all ages.

In the past we have asked our renters to clean the unit in lieu of a cleaning fee, that has worked for the most part, but not ALL the time. We are implementing a cleaning fee so we are assured that the unit is in perfect condition for the next renters. The fee is modest, but we feel it is important that the unit is perfect for each and every family. We provide bedding, but not towels. We hope you choose to visit us in Narragansett and enjoy our community and all it has to offer.
We certainly hope you choose to vacation with us and enjoy your stay.
