“authentic examples of the Country Place era”

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 than range in character from mysterious to exotic, and from poetic to workmanlike.

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. Its mission is to preserve New England’s finest garden estate through excellence in horticulture and historic preservation, and by our example to teach and inspire others.

Absolutely stunning gardens and grounds! Unfortunately I went on a Monday and wasn't aware that the mansion was closed on that day. But it was not a problem for me, I spent two full hours strolling the property taking pictures and just enjoying the serenity. I do suggest going early to Blithewold, at 10 when they open, and then heading into downtown Bristol afterward to have lunch and stroll around. It is a gorgeous town with lots of delicious restaurants, boutique shops, and picturesque views.
