We write a lot about RI waterfront homes, but sometimes it's nice to hear from people who actually live in them.  Here's one owner's take on the pleasures of living at 1601 Main Road in Tiverton - a pretty enticing deal at $895,000.

 “My husband and I bought the property at 1601 Main Road (then a summer cottage) in 1996 when two of our three children were still in high school – both avid sailors.
