True to its Historic Roots
Grace Note Farm, also known as the Benjamin Smith homestead farm c. 1730, is nestled in the northwest corner of Rhode Island adjacent to the George Washington Management area.

Trails wind through a covered bridge, hemlock grove and pass picturesque lakes and streams. You can ride alone on the well marked trails, or join a guide. Over 25 miles are safe for carriages.
Guests bring their own horses and can stay one or more nights on their own or in groups of up to 8 people. The stalls are airy and there is plenty of turnout in the rolling pastures or corrals surrounding the farm. Grace Note Farm welcomes group rides, and offers breakfast or lunch. The farm hosts parties for horse enthusiasts.
