About the property

Nature Retreat

Our newly renovated 18th-century Paradise Farmhouse on Aquidneck Island combines comfort and functionality with a spectacular location. The Farmhouse offers a unique location for nature vacation retreats located on the 325-acre Norman Bird Sanctuary with 7 miles of hiking trails, gardens, and rolling fields. The property is nestled between gorgeous beaches, local vineyards, farm stands, and is just a 5-minute scenic drive to historic Newport and all of its famous attractions.

The Farmhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places. This 6,000 square foot structure has six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms (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 bathrooms (1 with a full bath and 5 with showers and 1.5 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 16 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 in addition to the post-checkout cleaning. Also, if interested, add on an NBS educational program or a Guided Bird Hike by an NBS Naturalist. This is the perfect house for eco-conscious families, friends and companies to explore our beautiful beaches and hiking trails. Or choose to incorporate birding, guided nature walks, nature day camps for the children, or off-site excursions.

We thank you for considering Paradise Farmhouse at the Norman Bird Sanctuary for your vacation retreat, especially because your stay here helps support the Norman Bird Sanctuary’s mission to preserve and educate all age levels on the stewardship and sustainable use of coastal land and water resources.

We look forward to welcoming you to Paradise!
