I am talking about spending the night at the lighthouse. The RI Lighthouse foundation is who you contact for the reservations.

Spend the night or two or the month! It is a peaceful, healthy serene environment. I went in November and spent two nights. It was perfect weather being brisk, windy and sunny! You can sit and do nothing, walk the miles of shoreline, explore the island. Shells, birds a fire pit and more.

The ride over to the island on the "Starfish" was perfect. The staff went over an above in making my accommodations.

If you are seeking Newport luxury, don't go. It's decorated in 70's shabby chic. It is clean and there is hot water and heat.

If you want serenity, peace and harmony, clean fresh sea air and rest this is the place for you. There is no TV or phone. (Ship to shore is available) My iphone worked (I regret not turning it off) Next time I will.

“"Beautiful & Clean"”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Newport harbor is must see attraction in Newport RI.Fun to walk and to see so many sailboats.
Many good restaurants and shops to visit. In the evening it becomes a huge party place.
