The former home of artist, naturalist, and NBS founder, Mabel Norman Cerio, Paradise Farmhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been thoughtfully renovated with sustainable design in mind. Striking a balance between preserving the building’s historical significance with up-to-date function and comfort, it’s a perfect venue for eco-conscious families, friends and companies to explore and be inspired by nature.
Located ¼ mile from the beach, the property is home to miles of trails through gardens, fields, and forest. Guests can hike out to the iconic Hanging Rock, which has inspired generations of nature enthusiasts and artists alike with its breathtaking views of the Aquidneck Island coastline. Guided hikes, a visit to our Curiosity Lab, and on-campus nature programming are available for those who further wish to engage with the Norman Bird Sanctuary's 300-acre property.
