The Inn at Mount Hope Farm is located on 127 acres of saltwater farmland that is significant in our country’s earliest history.  The land was once the settlement of Native Americans whose Chief Sachem Massasoit attended the First Thanksgiving.  During the Revolutionary War, it was also the site of George Washington’s encampment. Our history also spans Rhode Island leading the Industrial Revolution as well as Bristol’s maritime legacy of DeWolf slave traders, and the Herreshoff America’s Cup boat builders.

Today, the renovated Inn, consisting of three historic buildings, offers 12 comfortable rooms, many furnished with antiques.

Well maintained perennial gardens, original stone walls, raised-bed vegetable gardens and a flower cutting garden add to its charm.  The Farm is home to a variety of sheep, goats, chickens and donkeys as well as wild turkeys and deer. Guests can walk to Cove Cabin, an Adirondack style cabin on the edge of Mount Hope Bay.  A bike path in downtown Bristol just 5 minutes away by car, meanders 16 miles along the shoreline to Providence.

Today, the Farm is owned by the Mount Hope Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the property and the landscape. The Farm welcomes you to one of Rhode Island’s last great country estates.

Bristol, Rhode Island is a quaint and charming seaside town with six museums, a range of restaurants from fine dining to sandwich shops and many unique shops to explore.  Its July 4 Independence Day celebration is the oldest and largest in the country.  A full list of attractions can be found at the Explore Bristol site.

Mount Hope Farm offers several locations for elegant parties, events and weddings ranging from our historic Civil War era barn that accommodates up to 140 people to the gardens of the Governor Bradford House, or Cove Cabin which has space for up to 500 people at a tented event.  Inquire by emailing Events@mounthopefarm.org or calling us at 401.254.1745.
