My sister booked this hotel for one night (to skip out on doing chores!) and said she had the best time. She was a little nervous before going because you're kind of cut off, but they lit a fire at night and had a quaint little room. The sunset was beautiful and she said they would definitely do it again.... More

This was our second trip to the Rose Island Lighthouse--a very unique getaway. Lots of history. Rooms availble in the lighthouse and other areas of the property. Bring out what you bring in. It is alot like fancy camping - you do have a full bed. Fog Horn building is directly on the rocks outside the lighthouse surrounded by the... More

I cannot think of enough positive adjectives to describe Rose Island Lighthouse and crew. My husband and I stayed for a week as keepers. When we booked the trip we were a bit worried there wouldn't be enough to do. We shouldn't have worried. The whole experience was magical, restful and rejuvenating. We were sorry to leave. We definitely plan... More

After an amazing tour of American Civil War battle sites in Virginia and nearby states, I promised my family a relaxing surprise on our way to Massachusetts. They were not disappointed! A gloriously sunny day in April saw us waiting at the dock for our boat. Chris took us out round the island to see the seals: knowing it was... More

I had reservations about this trip with friends. It was very different from anything I had ever done so I gave it a try. I ended up having a fun time and a unique experience. Chris, our boat captain was great! He knew we were interested in seeing seals and gave us a boat ride to see them. He answered... More

The Rose Island Lighthouse may be the best value getaway in New England in November. Rates drop by as much as 50% and you lose none of the ambience. It's easy to book - just call the number on the website. There are several rooms to choose from - we stayed on the ground floor in the lighthouse itself -... More

My family of 6 spent the last week of August in the keeper's apartment. It was an amazing adventure and the most relaxed vacation that we've ever spent together. The website does a thorough job in preparing guests in what to expect. While not luxurious, the keeper's quarters are more than adequate. Supplies are plentiful - pots, pans, utensils, towels,...

What a cool overnight at the Rose Island Lighthouse! This is a bit of an adventure and would not be for everybody, but read the website, and reviews and if you are up to it, book it! We spent a night in Newport so that we would be ready for our boat trip to Rose Island Light. You have to... More
