Historic Rocky Farm in Newport, R.I.
When we think Newport, we think grand oceanfront mansions built in the Gilded Age of the late 19th century. Here’s something a bit different from what we’re accustomed to: Dating back to 1695, this center-chimney Colonial is one of Newport’s earliest homes. It was even owned by Newport founder and Rhode Island Governor William Brenton.

The three-bedroom main house has been meticulously restored, yet it’s still brimming with period details, from brick fireplaces to wide-plank wood floors. Even older than the main house, the stone guesthouse dates all the way back to 1668 and originally served as a sheep barn – but you’d never know it from its stylishly updated interiors.
Best of all, the 3.44-acre compound still offers unspoiled views of the Atlantic Ocean and nearby Gooseberry Island. Get a closer look in the gallery above.
