The Basics


The Villa, an exclusive coastal Rhode Island Luxury Inn, is ideally located at the crossroads of Watch Hill, Weekapaug, and Westerly. Rich in history, The Villa was originally built in the 1850s and rebuilt after the hurricane of 1938. In 1974, this once private estate was converted into a Bed and Breakfast.   Since 2003, the Villa has undergone renovations while retaining the ambiance of old-world charm.  In 2022, The Villa came under new owners, bringing a fresh coastal appeal to the decor.

To say John and Heather are amazing is an understatement! They've thought of every detail and are the kindest couple! The room was immaculate, breakfast was prepared to perfection and we had so much fun exploring the grounds and the surrounding city of Westerly. They made sure our honeymoon was absolutely perfect! We are already planning our return trip. Thank you John and Heather!

This review is long over due... Hidden Gem does not justly describe this lovely place. The pictures used for advertising are lovely, but don't do this place justice... Even though we visited during the heart of Winter, the ambiance and care of the grounds was second to none, especially when you see it in the evening...stunningly lit, great for any romantic getaway. Beyond the location, I cannot say enough...See More

We spent a long weekend over Labor Day @ The Villa and enjoyed ourselves immensely! John and Heather are A+++ hosts in so many ways! Heather paid extra special attention to the delicious breakfast she prepared each morning, while John entertained guests with fun quips and interesting conversation. Our room, the Rosa, was well appointed and spotless. As luck would have it, there is a pretty great golf course...See More
