Entire home/apt

Our beautifully renovated 18th-century Paradise Farmhouse on Aquidneck Island combines comfort and functionality within a spectacular setting. The Farmhouse, which sleeps 16 and includes an expansive lawn overlooking the 300 acre Norman Bird Sanctuary nature preserve, offers a unique location for nature vacation retreats and special occasion gatherings. We are only 1/4 mile from the closest beach & a 10-min drive to Newport. The Paradise Farmhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places. This 6,000 square foot structure has six bedrooms (2 rooms with full size beds, 1 bunk room for 6 and 3 of the bedrooms can be set up with either 1 king or 2 twin beds). All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms (1 with a full bath and 5 with showers and 2 additional bathrooms on first floor). The Farmhouse is nicely appointed and provides overnight accommodations with a well equipped kitchen, 2 dining areas, 7 decorative fireplaces, 3 common/living rooms and a nicely furnished terrace for a maximum of 14-16 overnight guests. The house also includes central heat/AC, all bed linens and bathroom towels, Farmaesthetics 100% natural handmade herbal skincare products, and green cleaning supplies. For week-long rentals, 1 mid week cleaning service can be arranged at an additional cost. Also, if interested, add on an NBS educational program, a Guided Bird Hike by an NBS Naturalist or a Private chef/catering which is available upon request at an additional cost. Please note, since we are surrounded by nature and gorgeous beaches, the house does not have any TVs; but it does have WiFi. A community fee of $65 will be added to every booking, which includes a 1-year membership fee to Norman Bird Sanctuary for the primary guest. An additional agreement is required to be signed for all bookings. This is the perfect house for nature loving/eco-conscious families, friends and companies to explore our beautiful hiking trails and island beaches. Or choose to incorporate birding, guided nature walks, nature day camps for the children or off-site excursions. Rental includes entire farmhouse, terrace, driveway and lawn with water views. The Farmhouse Guest Services Manager and the staff at Norman Bird Sanctuary are available to give you and your group ideas, referrals and recommendations on things to do and places to see while visiting the area. We also encourage you to visit our website and check us out on social media for all upcoming programs and guided walks available through the Norman Bird Sanctuary. Please feel free to ask, as we have plenty of insider suggestions to make your trip a memorable one and we are happy to help. Paradise Farmhouse is a part of the Norman Bird Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization that maintains the largest contiguous open space in Newport County. Established in 1949 at the bequest of naturalist/artist Mabel Norman Cerio, the Norman Bird Sanctuary, under the charge of her will, was founded to maintain the land “for the propagation, preservation, and protection of birds, and where birds and bird life may be observed, studied, taught, and enjoyed by lovers of nature and by the public generally so interested in a spirit of humanity and mercy.” The NBS mission is to spark people's curiosity to explore, steward, and find peace and joy in nature. With over 300 acres of diverse habitat, 7 miles of hiking trails and robust educational programming for adults and children, its mission remains true to Mabel Norman Cerio’s original vision. As an active, community-based non-profit, we may occasionally be hosting events at Norman Bird Sanctuary property during your stay. We also have summer camps and other outdoor programming. The rental includes the entire farmhouse, private terrace and lawn, however, please note that there may be some noise from the surrounding property, as well as additional vehicles from NBS events that may abut the farmhouse property. We ask if you feel this may be an issue during your stay, to call us to discuss logistics and event dates. Most guests love the events and all are welcome to attend the public NBS gatherings!
