Rhode Island waterfront inns and B&Bs offer cozy comforts and lots of luxuries

If your idea of a getaway at an inn or B&B includes mental pictures of gorgeous beaches, shoreline, sailboats, and distant islands, you are probably ripe for a stay the delightful waterfront inns of Rhode Island. Many inns are clustered along the beaches of Narragansett Bay, and in the historic Colonial-era neighborhoods of Newport and Providence, both packed with cultural attractions.

Rhode Island inns extend their hospitality to romantic couples, families with kids, wedding and celebration groups, and people traveling with pets. Newport inns will put you close to historic mansions, fantastic dining all along the harbor, interesting wharves packed with cool shops, and lots of museums, music, and live entertainment in an intimate, walkable old city. Indoors, they charm visitors with antique furnishings, continental breakfast, and romantic views.

Inns on or near the mainland beaches of Misquamicut and Westerly and Watch Hill are on the threshold of vast, sandy beaches and traditional summer beach fun, along with luxury spas for adults in the family. The nearby attractions of Mystic, Connecticut, and the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos are a short drive from southern Rhode Island, offering great dining and entertainment.
