HGTV has arrived on Aquidneck Island and has your chance at winning a charming waterfront haven through their “Dream Home” series..

Although HGTV is pitching the home on their website and in videos as being located in Newport, the three-story home is actually located in the area of McCorrie Lane in Portsmouth.
