Completely renovated in late 2009, Baywoods Lodge presents the privacy and tranquility of a large forest-backed setting within view of the sea and your private neighborhood beach, offering unlimited hiking, sunbathing and biking opportunities. But it is also right in the center of Rhode Island's most popular historic towns and beaches, with Wickford, Narragansett, Jamestown and Newport only 3 - 8 miles away.
An authentic hand-hewn log home, Baywoods Lodge was constructed in 1971 by craftsmen from Vermont. It boasts 1450 square feet on two levels, a sunroom, and over 1000 sq feet of decking and balconies from which to enjoy the forest views.
The home has been newly transformed into a luxurious forest lodge, reminiscent of those of the American aristocracy of the 19th century, featuring fine Oriental rugs, 19th and early 20th century antiques, and hand-carved wood paneling. A state-of-the-art kitchen, two-story living room with fireplace, new bathrooms, and a Master suite with balcony and separate dressing room/lounge add to the unique character of the home. A fenced-in back yard adds to the comfort and safety of your children or small pet.
Our Saunderstown location, is arguably among the most convenient in Rhode Island, offering local beaches and woodlands, and water sports, sightseeing, shopping, or fine dining only minutes away. .Just off two thoroughfares, scenic 1A and RI 138, Wickford is 3 miles away, Jamestown 5 miles, and Narragansett and Newport in 8 miles. Providence is less than 30 minutes away.
The area offers plenty of hiking or bicycling opportunities as well, with Rome Point - a wild and beautiful peninsula in Narragansett bay from which you can view seals in the wintertime, Casey Farm - a working farm of the early 1700s operated by Historic New England, Gilbert Stuart Birthplace - where the famous portraitist of George Washington was born, and Historic Wickford Village, founded in 1680, all within 3 miles.
A Romantic History
When we first purchased the home, we and all our visitors remarked on what a beautiful "aura" the house had. Then we found out why. According to our 91-year-old neighbor, Baywoods Lodge was built in 1971 by a couple who were very much in love. The man had it built by Vermont artisans of hand-hewn logs, for his girlfriend. Then, when it was finished, he painted "I love you, honey" on the rafters in the basement. If you look, you can still see the words, in the laundry room.

Everywhere I stay, the promises made is always more than the experience...except this tine, Baywoods Cottage in Saunderstown, RI is a hidden jewel! We experienced the cottage which in itself is a vacation! A wonderful cottage with a loft bedroom, lots of decking...don't forget the wildlife that will visit, cook outs on the awesome patio, full kitchen, and sunroom. Then there is the beach, being close to Jamestown and Newport, kayaking in Wickford, and using our tandem bicycle to get to places unreachable with a car...and that was just the beginning. It was romantic, exciting, and fun - fun - and more FUN. I would recommend this experience anyone who wants rest, relaxation, and excitement...all rolled into a vacation of a lifetime. AND...we loved it so much, we're doing it again in October! Hope the foliage will be there when we visit, if not, well there is plenty to do at the cottage! See you in October.
