Summer Wedding at Farmhouse
Farmhouse by the Sea helped make our wedding experience truly amazing. Our wedding was not only the best day of our lives, but it was the best week! It was a pleasure to spend our rehearsal and post-wedding brunch at the Farmhouse. Being in one location with our family and friends made everything relaxing and tons of fun. Also, spending a few days on our own after everything was said and done was the absolute best way to wind down.
The Farmhouse is spacious and gorgeous. Our bridal party was thrilled to stay in such a lovely house. Also, the beauty of the grounds awed our guests. We stuck to the natural beauty of the property and did not need to decorate much at all. The property alone is lovely!
Seth is also a perfect person to work with. He is always a phone call away and is very responsive to questions. He made our experience feel easygoing and we felt at home.
The location is also gorgeous. The Farmhouse is equipped with bikes, so you can ride around town. Be sure to spend as much time as you can on the beach. It is the best I've visited in RI.
So, if you are looking for a fun, easygoing, beautiful, and welcoming place to host your wedding week - look no further! You've found it at the Farmhouse.
Wonderful for a big family reunion
A wonderful house with lots of room and a lot of character. Seth was extremely helpful and all the great activities on the property were a great bonus. One set of kids would be playing basketball while another explored the garden. The perfect weather helped, but we had a terrific week. Thanks to everyone there!
Summer in Paradise

With well timed "check ins" on the visit and beyond being a truly nice guy it completed a perfect stay.
