Rose Island Lighthouse
Reviewed 23 September 2016

This is a beautiful place to spend a night. We were in the apartment on the second floor, which has a full kitchen, full bath, a large bedroom with queen bed, and a small bedroom with two bunk beds. There is a large living room full of books, games, puzzles, etc.

The first floor has a bath but no kitchen and is divided up. There is also a lower bedroom in a separate building outside just to the west. The view from there is great. It is a separate rental, and has no kitchen or bath.

There is a "bunk house" built before 1800. It has ten rooms, one of which has been finished as a bedroom. It is large and has a table, but no bath or kitchen.

The people in the bunkhouse and the lower bedroom have to use an outside bathroom which is about 100 feet from the lower bedroom and maybe 30 feet from the bunkhouse. They can cook on outdoor grills.

Drinking water is brought in and resides in a large five gallon tank in each apartment and bedroom. That's fine. Other water is collected from rain or pumped and is not potable.

There is no wifi or internet. Cell phones work. This is a beautiful glorious place and is absolutely worth spending a night if you can swing it.

Room Tip: Second floor apartment is best

I really enjoyed seeing all the lighthouses in Narraganset Bay. The guide shared the history of each lighthouse and many other attractions. I'm tempted to check out staying at the Rose Island Lighthouse

I recently spent the night here with a group of friends. It was so relaxing to wake up, look out the window, and see water and sailboats so close. The lighthouse is very charming but rustic. There was an indoor shower but the water pressure was so low that it was difficult to get all of the soap out of your hair. There is also an outdoor shower option. When staying here, you are expected to clean up after yourself and change your sheets. However, this is a beautiful island and I had an extremely relaxing visit.

This is a fantastic getaway for a couple looking to relax. Please note that there are little to no amenities here... the only food is what you bring with you, and the bathrooms are outside. You are also responsible for changing your own sheets. But that is part of the charm. You will fall asleep by the sound of the waves. And the island itself is beautiful. Very recommended.
