House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Quiet, remote, escape from the big city...this is Prudence Island.

The Island offers an unhurried pace of life and is like a step back

in time. You will find no commercialism here. When you board the

ferry in Bristol, Rhode Island, leave all your stress on the dock.

If you are looking for the buzz of big city night life or the

excitement of a theme park, then you have come to the wrong place.

If you are looking for total relaxation and a renewal of your

spirit,

then Prudence Island is for you.

Prudence Island is a whale-shaped island in the center of

Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. Accessible only by ferry or private

boat, it feels like a million miles away, but is only a short

distance from Providence, Rhode Island's capital, and the mansions

of

Newport, Rhode Island. There are no motels, restaurants or

convenience stores, so plan on bringing everything you need. If

your

in-laws decide they need to pop in during your Island vacation, they

need to know in advance that there are no instant accommodations on

the Island. They will stay with you, eat the food you have brought

and deplete your toiletries. There are two very small stores that

carry some essentials, but there is no guarantee they will be

operating or open when you need them. Of course, you can leave the

Island and go to the mainland, but you may not want to.

There are several websites on the internet to help you better get a

feel for Prudence and the exciting areas around the Island to visit

during day trips. Prudence Island, The Farnham Farm, Prudence

Conservancy, Newport and Bristol Rhode Island are all good searches

to start with. Explore the Internet, then make your reservations to

explore one of the world's little pieces of heaven-Prudence

Island.

Notes:

  • The cottage is your typical New England summer cottage with the weathered cedar shakes. It is small, but has all you need to become an Islander for a week or so. The property sits right at the peak of the Island and goes right down to the coastline. Conveniently placed stairs escort you to your morning swim off of the majestic New England rocks. There is one private bedroom with a double bed, two single beds in the living area and another single bed on the glassed in porch. The kitchen is adequate, complete with microwave. There is a television that receives one or two local channels for those of you who need your daily news. There is a gas grill outdoors (where you will truly prefer to be). There is no telephone, so if you absolutely must be connected, please bring a cell phone. Public phones are available, but you would have to walk down the hill.
