Summer Wedding at Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

Our third visit to this unique and completely spectacular property. Seth is a superb host who ensures all your needs are met and even offered us fresh eggs and vegetables from his organic Farm. With well timed "check ins" on the visit and beyond being a truly nice guy it completed a perfect stay. The location and extreme privacy this timeless classic offers, its sure to meet all your needs and much more. I couldn't imagine spending my Summer vacation anywhere else! Thank you again :)

the Farmhouse was better than expected. So perfect in every detail.

We had our Daughter's High School Graduation Party here and all of our guests were so impressed.

the Farmhouse is so big, we were able to have the so many of our guests stay the nite!

the grounds are well manicured and the Purgola is exceptional. It provided the perfect spot for our DJ and Karaoke.

We all had a blast.

the house was spotless and has everything we needed and more.

Seth is a great guy and super helpful.

We would 1,000% recommend this house and we will definitely be renting it again!!!!!!!!

The farmhouse on the beach is by fare the best beach rental no second home my family has ever stayed at. Seth gross is one of those guys that will do anything to make your stay amazing. The house gives you everything you would need for comfort. The house the property and the feel of it all will having you never wanting to leave. We rented this property for our wedding party and vacation and it was and is so incredible we come back every year. The same two weeks every summer will be locked down for my family every season. The house is well kept and very clean. grest activities aren't far away. Your surrounded by beaches in every direction and the food!! Oh my the restaurants. My personal favorite is the matunuck oyster bar. This is a place I would tell all to rent for a great getaway. The Daves family
