Get outside with some friends on one of Blithewold's porches for a cup of hot tea or iced tea, and freshly baked scones with clotted cream. Catch-up while enjoying a beautiful view of the Bay and Blithewold's gardens.

Come in, sit down, relax, and enjoy the moment. 

Blithewold, a 33 - acre summer estate with grand views of Narragansett Bay, is nationally significant in American history as one of the most fully developed and authentic examples of the Country Place era. The property features a 45-room mansion filled with family heirlooms framed by a series of lovely gardens that range in character from mysterious to exotic, and from poetic to practical. An exceptional collection of rare and unusual plants, specimen trees, an accessible greenhouse, and whimsical stonework project a character that is romantic, fresh and inspiring -- and unique to Blithewold.
