Top 5 Luxury Summer Rentals on Rhode Island’s Coveted Coastline

by Dom Costa

It's no secret that Rhode Island is a summer haven to many. Tourists and residents have been flocking to the Ocean State’s coast for years, and Newport is still considered America’s first resort. Here are what we have gathered as the top five most luxurious summer retreats for rent.

Number 5 | "Howland Heights", Block Island

This beautifully appointed home is tucked away in the Pecham Farm neighborhood of Block Island providing for a true island paradise. The 4 bedroom and 4 bath property is surrounded by acres of conservation land allowing for majestic views of the island and surrounding ocean! Enjoy long walks, perfect privacy and some of the world's best sunsets all from this summer retreat. 

Number 4 | 83 Billington Avenue, South Kingstown

The Nantucket-style pondfront home is a boaters dream, equipped with a deep-water dock. The home offers three bedrooms and two full baths, which sleeps a family of six comfortably with spectacular western facing views over Point Judith Pond.

Number 3 | 26 Beach Row, Narragansett

This gorgeous beach house may very well offer some of the best views in Narragansett! When you aren’t out enjoying the beach, you can sit on the deck and watch the ferries pass by. The home offers three bedrooms and two full baths. If you seek a good old fashioned beach vacation, there is no place better.

Number 2 | "Cead Mile Failte" Middletown

This impressive gated ocean-front estate offers the best of privacy and seclusion on its nearly 2 acres of park like grounds. The modern home offers 4 bedrooms with 3 and 1 half baths and is perfectly accented by an historic guest cottage. The gracefully designed swimming pool and the property’s location within two miles of Newport and Third Beach make it an ideal get away. 

Number 1 | “The Ledges”

“The Ledges” is an iconic New England Jewel and is like living in history as one of the original gilded-age mansions. The house sits on what many say is the most desirable lot in Newport, overlooking Baily’s Beach on 35 waterfront acres. The mansion offers eight bedrooms and six full baths along with a covered wrap-around porch with sweeping ocean views. The exclusive, and very private home is limited to a select few tenants each year but it’s a true shock that anyone would ever want to leave.
