    14br Waterfront Vacation Rental Near Newport, PVD - Perfect for Family Occasions

    Beachfront Property with private pool and kitchen
    The BeachMansion, aka The Leroy Fales House, is a multi-gabled, stone and shingle Newport-style English Medieval Tudor Revival mansion built in 1895. This final-and-chimney-peaked Victorian residence features magnificent original details throughout. Situated in Barrington, Rhode Island, this unique beachfront mansion offers 10,400 square feet of living space, including fourteen bedrooms. This gilded age mansion offers a spectacular vacation experience with special features such as original brass fixtures throughout, mahogany details, incredibly ornate hardwood floors, hand-painted stained-glass windows, leather-pressed wallpaper, and an in-ground heated pool. Opulent nineteenth century details combine with luxurious modern amenities to make this a once-in-a-llifetime special occasion location. There are eight bedrooms on the second floor. Five have either a queen or king bed; three have two twin beds in each. The twin beds are in the original servants’ quarters - ideal for children. The third floor has six bedrooms. Five have either a queen or king bed. The sixth bedroom is in the servants’ quarters; it has two queen beds - generally used by teens or a nanny. There is also a separate television room on the third floor of the servants’ quarters which is often used by those who bring their own video games as a "kids retreat" location. Eat dinner under a grand, nineteenth-century chandelier in a hand-carved mahogany dining room. Then, retire to the Congressional Room and comfortably lounge in leather furniture by the fireplace as your family relaxes to music or enjoys the 65-inch flat-screen television in the Main Room. Slide one of the solid mahogany pocket doors open to relax in the formal yet cozy sitting room, the Repetti Music Salon, or the ornate and historic Billiard Room. Later, take the grand mahogany-railed staircase up to one of the ten bedrooms and view the sunset over world-famous Narragansett Bay. When the sun is down, you and your family can still enjoy the heated pool in our private backyard. Every morning or afternoon you'll be just a seventy yard stroll from exclusive Barrington Beach. In the evening, whether you choose to dine inside in a sunny warm Florida room, outside in a giant breezy enclosed porch, or on the covered open-air deck that wraps around the house to the stone portico, you'll have incredible water views with every choice. The BeachMansion an ideal home for a family to celebrate a special occasion. Few homes offer the amenities for a large gathering that the BeachMansion offers. Your entire group may dine or enjoy a beverage on our large wrap-around porch while watching the sun disappear over Barrington Beach and into Narragansett Bay. Enjoy a cook-out by the private, heated pool (opens Memorial Day, closes Labor Day). The BeachMansion has wireless wifi and flat-screen televisions in many bedrooms. Less than a two-minute walk from the deck of the BeachMansion, Barrington Beach (free your entire family) is a semi-private family-oriented sandy beach located on picturesque Narragansett Bay. It has beautiful dunes, vegetation, and four acres of sandy shoreline. It offers beautiful scenery, peaceful sunning, and calm waters that make for easy swimming for children. Alcohol and smoking are not permitted. Lifeguards are on duty from June until September. Your family can enjoy all of the facilities, including restrooms, showers, and picnic tables. Barrington Beach is a popular fishing spot. Cast a line into the ocean - people of all ages fish right from the beach. You will often see kiteboarders catching air. The BeachMansion is an easy 1.3 mile bike ride from a scenic stretch of the East Coast Greenway called the East Bay Bike Path. Its a ribbon of smooth asphalt that takes you near coves and marshes, over bridges, and through state parks. You can bike 7 miles from the front door right into Colt State Park, where the East Bay bike path ends. Or, bike 9 miles north along and over the bay right into downtown Providence. Just off the bike path, four miles away from the Beachmansion in Bristol, RI is the Audubon Society Environmental Education Center. Owls and falcons fly between trainers during falcon weeks. There are fish, enormous lobsters, and other sea creatures, in addition to their lovely boardwalk along the shoreline of the bay. Barrington town center is conveniently less than two miles away. There are several nearby golf options, too. Beautiful, historic Providence is a twenty-minute drive away. Providence has a fantastic Children’s Museum (www.childrenmuseum.org), RISD Museum (RISDMuseum.org), and the Roger Williams Park Zoo (RWPZOO.org). Providence also has world-class dining (JBF-nominated chefs), shopping (Providence Place Mall with IMAX), theater (Trinity Repertory Theater), and nightlife. Waterfire is amazing! If the weather does not cooperate, challenge your housemates to a billiards match on the gorgeous pool table in the ornate Billiard Room. Have an epic hide-and-go-seek throughout four levels of Victorian history. Or, relax inside this historic beach setting by watching a movie on our 65" flat-screen surround sound TV. Reading or iPhoning on the inside or outside wrap-around deck on a rocking chair isn't a bad way to spend an overcast day at the BeachMansion. There is so much more to say. Please visit our web site at www.BeachMansion.com for more information and photos. Here's an excerpt of the BeachMansion's history, as is told by Ms. Andrea McHuge in her "Gilded Age Grandeur" 2016 The Bay Magazine article: "During its heyday, the home belonged to Le Roy Fales who served in the Rhode Island General Assembly from 1896 to 1900 representing the city of his birth, Central Falls. Fales’ manufacturing career soared at The Fales & Jenks Machine Company, which his grandfather, a visionary machinist, had founded in the 1830s. Fales managed other business interests as well, and the family name became synonymous with manufacturing in Rhode Island. He moved to Barrington in 1900 and enjoyed the sweeping water views and close proximity to Barrington Beach. It’s easy to imagine Fales receiving distinguished guests in the mansion’s Congressional Room. With its captivating original hand-painted leather wallpaper emblazoned with stately crests, an ornate hand-painted ceiling, hand-carved hearth with a bold mantelpiece and stately stained glass windows, the room offers a palpable air of aristocracy. Today, period furniture is perfectly placed almost as an homage to the mansion’s past." Here's how Richard Salit described the BeachMansion's neighborhood in his 2017 Providence Journal article: "One thing that isn’t changing is the neighborhood’s desirable location. Davis notes that not only is the beach a short stroll away, you can be downtown — and on the East Bay Bike Path — in just a matter of minutes on foot or bike. Much of the neighborhood has retained its charm, with plenty of quaint cottages, mature trees, stone walls, even a pond. What other neighborhood has its own tower resembling a windmill? That’s the Leroy Fales Tower, at 17 Lorraine St., which is highlighted in a state Historical Preservation Commission report, along with the Leroy Fales House, a 39-room stone-and-shingle English Medieval revival." During July and August, we only permit Saturday until Saturday stays; except, however for the 4th of July week 2019, where we require a six-night stay checking in on Sunday June 30th and checking out on Saturday morning 06 July 2019.

      September 2019

      The Beach Mansion was the perfect lodging for our wedding weekend. We got married in Bristol and both of our families stayed with us for the long weekend and it worked out perfectly! We had a 30 person rehearsal dinner at the mansion as well as a bigger post wedding BBQ the day after the wedding. There was plenty of space for everyone and the house really did all of the entertaining for us. Our guests loved walking around, playing pool, and hanging out in the yard playing games. The house also provided enough space that our older relatives could go rest or read when they wanted to get away from the noise. The kitchen had everything we needed, including THREE fridges and a huge gas range. We did bring our own knives for cooking since we were prepping big meals there, as well as some large serving dishes. There were two toasters and one did not work, but other than that the kitchen was great. I recommend bringing hand soap for the 6 bathrooms- this is something I did not think of. Scotty, the caretaker, was very helpful with our check-in and also answered several of my phone calls leading up to the trip. John was also quick to reply back to all of my questions. Overall, the house was awesome and totally enhanced our weekend. It was so much more fun than having everyone staying at a hotel!

        Amazing

        The Beach Mansion House is amazing! I was able to bring my very large family together in one place for a great time filled with lots of Love and Laughter. I was able to Host a catered dinner and brunch for my daughters wedding here during our stay as well. The grandkids and adults alike enjoyed the pool and beach during our down time. The beds were very clean and comfortable. I did have to arrange pack and plays for a couple of small children. The house unfortunately needs some loving care in the cleaning department. But overall we had a great experience and will cherish the memories of this week for years to come. Thank You so much for sharing your property with us.

        4/5 Good

          Exactly what we needed!

          My daughter was getting married in Bristol RI and all our siblings were flying in from all over the country with their children, and we needed a huge home to accommodate everyone. Wonderful, exciting and the talk of the weekend how interesting the house was, enhanced by a beautiful wedding reception in close by Newport with stories that will never be forgotten. Thank you John for helping to make it memorable weekend. Scott the caretaker was always available and John the owner promptly answered all of our questions both before and during our stay.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great property and experience

            What a wonderful old house! If you are looking for a unique location for a large gathering (we had a family reunion) where character, spectacular location and experience are more important than "mod cons" then I highly recommend the Beach Mansion. The house was prepared perfectly and communication with both Scott (caretaker) and John (owner) was fast, pleasant and efficient throughout. We all had a memorable time!

            5/5 Excellent

              Unique historic sprawling mansion with a heated pool, huge front lawn, and beach access.

              This place is unsurpassable for a summer family reunion. Our group of 17 adults and 11 kids gathered for a week of lawn games and relaxing by the pool. The house itself is unique and sprawling, giving everyone plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. The front porch with views of the bay is perfect for morning coffee as well as happy hour. Two refrigerators as well as a large antique ice box, big stove, and grill out by the pool afforded us the ability to prepare meals at the house. Recommend B&M catering in Pawtucket for clam bake to travel. Leo's in Bristol does fantastic Italian food for large groups. Imagine gift store in Warren is great for gifts and trinkets. Bring your own lawn games and beach towels. Bring extra paper goods. There is a large grocery store and CVS pharmacy less than 10 minutes from the house. The third floor did get really warm so bring fans if hot temperatures anticipated. There are a few dilapidated aspects of the place, but no functional problems. The owner and caretaker are both very responsive and great. We hope to return to this amazing property some day! Easy access to Newport and the interesting seaside towns along the way. 30 minutes from Providence airport.
