To celebrate my husband's 70th. birthday I booked an overnight stay at the Rose Island lighthouse. Had no idea what to expect, but it was a great adventure. There are options for different rooms, each one brings a different experience,the keepers apartment ( our choice) is self contained with full kitchen. All the others have less amenities. I would recommend...

If you want nothing to do and absolute quiet then go to this island. It's beautiful. It's more for mature generation and not too young people. The lighthouse is beautiful and the island full of history.

Stayed overnight. What a fantastic experience. I would recommend this to anyone. The Rose Island Foundation has done a wonderful job with the restoration and preservation of this lighthouse. This is a great time for families, couples and solo.

There aren't too many places you can bring your pup where they are off leash on an island. And to top it off, it's a fund raiser for Rose Island Lighthouse. Watch for upcoming romps, your pup will love you for it!

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...

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...

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...

“Museum rooms share a common space and are rustic, and also accessible to day visitors. Keepers apartment is more private and has the only shower on the island, also not accessible to day visitors. Fog horn room and barracks rooms are isolated and private, but bathrooms are a short walk away. Also those rooms do not have heat. Find a room to suit your style, and go and enjoy.”
