We took a small boat to visit the island. The tour was wonderful for a warm sunny day. The lighthouse is like a house with a light at the top. You can actually stay there for a week and work on the property. The boat tour along the way was informative about the large mansions along the water's edge and about the military presents there in the past.

Stayed: October 2016, travelled with family

Just a nice getaway, like Gilligans Island. Your dropped off by boat and left on your own to enjoy the beautiful lighthouse and dream what it must have been like for the lighthouse keepers before Spent the night in the apartment on second floor. Really authentic and logs are kept by all visitors. Interesting to read!!!. Fresh air, no noise, except the ocean. Must experience at least once!!! Do It!!

Room Tip: Any room is a good one. If you want to cook however, you will need the apartment or you can grill outside.

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
