1977 Airstream Ambassador, fully remodeled and available for your Newport vacation. Located at Melville Ponds Campground just five miles from downtown Newport. Newport is a short drive or buss ride from the campground and Providence is only 25 minutes by highway. Greenvale and Newport Vineyards are just minutes away as is the beach. Stay at the campground and enjoy over five miles of hiking trails that will take you down to Narragansett Bay and in in the evening enjoy a campfire on your site.

The space

Come experience glamping at Melville Ponds Campground, just 5 miles from downtown Newport Rhode Island. Our 1977 Airstream Land Yacht offers guests a modern interior within the iconic Airstream shell. This is tiny living, while the Airstream does offer a full size toilet, small shower, two twin beds, couch, TV, induction cook top, refrigerator and microwave, this is still a small space. It’s likely that you will want to keep bags in the car and bring in the essentials for the day.

Outside the camper relax in an Adirondack chair, enjoy a campfire and use the grill on your site, all of which is included with the cost of your stay. The campground is yours to enjoy. Take a hike down to the bay on our trail system and enjoy our large children’s playground. Coin laundry and WIFI service is also available to you during your stay. Take a drive or grab the bus to Historic Newport and enjoy endless natural and historical wonders, excellent dining opportunities and lively nightlife.

We hope to welcome you soon!

There’s nothing not to love about this place! It’s so clean, comfortable and unique! Everything was thought of from coffee to towels and ensuring we could find the site. Great location as well! Newport is not too far down the road.

Wow!!! You will be super impressed with this modernized glamper as the pictures do NOT even do it justice! We wish that we could live in it! The campground provides an amazingly relaxing atmosphere outside with all the amenities of a hotel inside. Folded towels, flowered tissue boxes and mini toiletries adorned the interior along with decorative touches and much more space than I was expecting. You actually have the ability to walk around all sides of the queen-sized bed. There was even a closet area with a place to hang clothes and coats across from the bathroom that provided much needed access to all your belongings. Justin was extremely accommodating and helpful with information about the area we wanted to visit and the campgrounds as well. We cannot wait to return for another wonderful getaway!

The airstream was such an excellent place to stay. It's in a cute scenic woodland area and there are things to do walking distance from the campground. We got lunch at a place called Cindy's Country Kitchen and It was great. The airstream was a fun little vacation!

We loved our week in the Airstream! It was cozy and comfy, with modern décor - white and silver with red accents. The fridge was small but a decent size. We expected to feel cramped but not so! Air conditioning when hot during the day, and heating when cold at night all worked well. Our friends were in a nearby RV so it was fun to join them. Chris and Beth

Great escape! I would've given this accommodation 5 stars, other than the fact that we were notified the day of arrival that we'd have to stay in the airstream with twin beds for the first night rather than the airstream with a queen bed which we had booked. However, Justin took care of us for the inconvenience. The airstreams were immaculate and the campground was beautiful and quiet. They even provided us with free firewood. I would definitely recommend this getaway for something different. Quick drive or Uber to Newport.

We are very sorry your reservation was mixed up and you had to stay in another one of our Airstreams for one night. We hope that the discount we provided was to your satisfaction.
