The Beach Mansion

The Beach Mansion

Built in 1895, this unique 9000 sq ft Victorian style mansion is the perfect bay-side vacation spot. With opulent turn-of-the-century details and modern amenities, this Rhode Island vacation home offers guests the opportunity to revel at hand-painted stained glass windows, dine under an ornate chandelier, and relax in front of the grand fireplace.

With original brass fixtures, ornate hardwood floors, and hand-carved mahogany accents, the Beach Mansion stays true to its gilded roots while offering all the comforts of home. Sink into a warm leather couch as you catch up with the news on our sixty-five inch television, go for a dip in our private heated in-ground pool, and watch the sunset over Narragansett Bay. With fourteen guest rooms and 20 beds, the Beach Mansion is a cozy, family-friendly retreat. Guests are invited to enjoy the well-appointed sitting room, airy music salon, and lively billiard room. Whether you choose to enjoy your beverages and meals on spacious, covered, open-air wraparound deck, the breezy enclosed porch, or the sun-drenched Florida room, you and your family can enjoy a water view before strolling over to the exclusive Barrington Beach (a 2 minute walk) for a quick dip in the calm Narragansett Bay.

There are 8 bed rooms on the second floor. Five have either a queen or king bed, while 3 have 2 twin beds in each. The twin beds are in the original servants’ quarters and are ideal for children. The third floor has 6 bed rooms. Five have either a queen or king bed. The other one is in the servants’ quarters and contains 2 queen beds. This is generally used for teenagers or a nanny. Next to that bedroom is a bathroom. Also on the third floor is the television room, which children frequently use for their video games that they bring with them.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a family-friendly summer rental on the Rhode Island shore, or just a chance to experience old-fashioned splendor without sacrificing all the comforts of today, Beach Mansion is the perfect place for your next beach-front New England getaway.

Prices vary by season and include cleaning, linens, utilities, cable, wireless internet, and taxes.
