Fall Activities

Local Restaurants

In Narragansett, try Champlin’s or George's, just a mile away, for three kinds of chowder, fresh lobster and other seafood on wooden benches or outdoor patios and decks. For more upscale dining, Spain is a favorite of the locals, Turtle Soup has a dining room with a view of the ocean and a recently addition to the local restaurant scene, Trio brings a little bit of Newport panache to Narragansett. 



Newport is active all year long with boutiques, galleries, restaurants and cafés. Tour the mansions, visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, or walk the cliff walk.


Holiday Season

Why not get away form the malls this holiday season to get your holiday shopping done? Spend the day shopping in Newport in a much more enjoyable setting than your local mall. Tour the mansions specially decorated in traditional 19th century Christmas style. Why not meet your extended family at our home to exchange gifts and holiday greetings in a special location.



Enjoy bike riding, kayaking, golf, or a walk on the beach. For a casual bike ride, we have a variety of bikes available. If you are a golfer, here is a listing of local public courses. If you like to kayak, the surrounding area (Point Judith Pond) is an ideal location. And there’s always a good stiff breeze if you enjoy windsurfing or kite flying.


Vineyard Tours

The Southeastern New England Wine Growing Appellation, stretches from Cape Cod and the Islands through the South Coast of Massachusetts and Coastal Rhode Island and Coastal Connecticut and includes 7 wineries. The common thread through this wine region is close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Southeast facing coastline. Most wineries here concentrate on white wines and sparkling wines.

Cooking Classes

How about some cooking classes? Store Four (401-783-7388) in nearby Wakefield, RI offers cooking classes. Watch, learn, eat and taste wine in a relaxed setting while the Chef prepares the recipes for the evening. You will receive copies of each recipe, learn additional tips and ideas, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions, take notes and interact with the Chef throughout the evening. Wakefield Liquors will match sample portions of wine to each recipe and explain why the food and wine makes a great match. This is truly an enjoyable night out!


1950's Dutch Colonial Home on Great Island In Narragansett, RI with "upside down" open floor plan and 1500+ square feet completely renovated top to bottom including central AC just a few years ago. This is our vacation home, not an investment property so it has been treated with love. We are happy to share it and ask you to treat it the same way.
