How about an escape to a 103-year-old mansion set on a rock in Narragansett Bay off the coast of Rhode Island? Boston architect Henry Wood shares his weekend bohemian retreat — Clingstone — with The New York Times. Maintained by guests who pitch in with cleaning, painting and various projects, Clingstone is a celebration of salvaged materials, hard work and community spirit...

There are 23 rooms and hundreds of windows in Clingstone and they require a lot of upkeep. Read all about the annual maintenance weekends and history of the home in The New York Times: Who Lives There: The Old House and the Sea. Don't miss the slideshow!
