About the property

14BR-51/2 bath Bayfront Vacation Rental, private heated pool, Barrington, RI USA

This original, medieval revival, Newport-style, Victorian mansion was built in 1895 and features magnificent original details throughout. Situated in Barrington, Rhode Island, this unique beachfront home offers 9,000 square feet of living space, including fourteen bedrooms. This gilded age mansion offers a spectacular vacation experience with such special features such as original brass fixtures throughout, mahogany details, incredibly ornate hardwood floors, hand-painted stained-glass windows, and an in-ground heated pool. Opulent nineteenth century details combine with luxurious modern amenities to make this a getaway of a lifetime.

Eat dinner under a grand, nineteenth-century chandelier in a hand-carved mahogany dining room. Then, retire to the main room and comfortably lounge in leather furniture by the fireplace as your family relaxes to music, or enjoy the 65-inch flat-screen television. Slide one of the solid mahogany pocket doors open to relax in the formal yet cozy sitting room, music salon, or 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 one-hundred-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.

There are eight bedrooms on the second floor. Five have either a queen or king bed, while three have two twin beds in each. The twin beds are in the original servants’ quarters and are ideal for children. The third floor has six bedrooms. Five have either a queen or king bed.

Family Christmas Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family Christmas gathering at Beach Mansion. Three generations ranging in age from infant to 60+ and everyone had a great time. Plenty of bedrooms and had large spaces (great room, dining room and kitchen) for us to cook, dine, relax, play games and basically enjoy each other's company. Lots of areas for the kids to play too...they especially loved hide-and-seek! Many thanks to the owner and caretaker for making the entire process smooth and always being available to answer any question we had prior to and upon our arrival. They were more than accommodating to make our stay a very enjoyable, memorable family weekend!

Our Stay at the Beach Mansion

  • 5 of 5

I had a Surprise Birthday Party for my husband at this property. The accomodations are excellent. The owner and the property manager are very helpful and more than willing to work with you to make your stay a vacation to remember ! We had our grown children and grandchildren all under the same roof and everyone had a fantastic time. The house is situated right by the beach and there is a beautiful yard to play in....It was like being in your own Mansion/Villa without having to travel to France or Italy....our friends were able to come by and enjoy the evening sunsets on that fantastic wrap around porch. The Grandkids loved playing hide and seek. I would definitely rent here again.....everything was stellar.

Owner's Response: All of us here at the Beachmansion feel fulfilled when we read about a stay such as yours! Having generations under one roof enjoying meals together in between time at the pool and the beach makes these celebrations more family-oriented and more memorable. We’re glad you made the most out of the yard, the sunsets on the porch and the vastness of the house! Thanks for your wonderful review!

Great for our wedding guests

  • 5 of 5

We had a small wedding in nearby Bristol, Rhode Island, and rented the Beach Mansion for ourselves and our friends. Everyone agreed it was absolutely perfect! Every couple had their own unique bedroom and there was plenty of space to hang out downstairs. Our families and their kids could just pop by and be entertained. My Grandmother said the rooms were like nothing she had ever seen. Also worth noting that the caretaker is very helpful and responsive.

A great place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations, a mix of small grandchildren children,(toddlers and teens), a group of 20-30's year olds, and a dozen over 40 years of age.and we all had a wonderful time. I was worried with such a large group that we would be overcrowded and get on each others nerves, but that was not the case at all. There was so much room and several big areas to gather, at times we were all together and times we seperated into smaller groups and there was always a place just to be alone with a book. The little ones loved all the room to run around the house, they sure slept well each night.

The kitchen stove was a chef's delight! Plenty of kitcen accessories, like food processor, tons of kitchen gadgets, lots of pots and pans. The two big frigerators and a huge cooler to store drinks and a big grill out by the pool made meals easy and cheap! Also there were a tons of chairs on the porches and pool side.

Everything was clean, lots of linens, pillows, blankets and towels! The only complaint was that on the days when the weather was above 90, some of the bedrooms on the 3rd floor were too warm and uncomfortable.

The pool was great, large enough for a big group! Some of us hardly left the house and others went on an adventures every day.The cliff walk, Newport, Providence and charter fishing trips were some of he favorite activities. Bristle was so very close and offered free concerts in the park next to the water...it was so beautiful! A few of our group flew into the Provodence airport and it was close and easy!.

Each day the house became more fun and we all loved the house and will cheerish our special memories. We all agreed, it was one of our best vacations and we all would love to go back again! I would highly recommend.this for a large group of all ages! I have two regrets, 1. We didn't take a group picture and 2. We never played hide and seek! Overall a place to vacation!

Owner's Response: Sheila, Thank you for choosing the Beachmansion and we are thrilled that you and your family had a fun-filled week of enjoyment and adventure. Hopefully we will see you next year so you can take your group picture and squeeze in a fun game of hide and seek! Thanks again....

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful and comfortable. The kids were in kid's heaven. They swam for 10 hours a day in the pool , fished at the beach, played frisbee or wiffle ball on the front lawn, played billiards -- basically they ruled the roost. Even on a day of thunderstorms the kids had a blast playing the best game of hide and seek ever. Also a great place for the adults, you could always find a nook to sneak away to or hang with everyone on the deck. The kitchen was a good cooking kitchen and the grill was large and built to cook for a crowd. The old ice box comverted to beverage fridge was fantastic as it can host tons of beverages. We did not get out much because you just did not feel the need to. Real close to some amazing food to bring home and cook in Providence i.e. Raviolis, Veal, seafood, etc...
