Great Expectations A Narragansett home gets a refresh for summer living “I grew up coming to Narragansett every summer,” Kathy Beam recollects. “My aunt lived on Great Island and I always hoped I could bring my own family there each summer someday.” For those who aren’t familiar with this remote spot, it’s a small island accessed by turning onto Great Island Road off the fittingly named Galilee Escape Road. Streets in this sleepy seaside community have names like Periwinkle Road, Starfish Drive, and Sandpiper Road. Little Comfort Island is connected and there are views of Potato Island, Goose Island, perhaps even Block Island on a clear day, and the ferry terminal is just a bike ride away.
