“Outstanding B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We arrived an hour and a half before check-in, in the rain, and were warmly greeted by Barbara - no problem with our being early, our room (Verona) was ready and she was just putting out snacks and aperitifs. Our room was very comfortable and capacious, including jacuzzi (there is an outdoor hottub, too) and fireplace. Bathroom had lots of nice amenities and plenty of towels, tissues, make-up remover, etc. We made ourselves very comfortable in the sitting area and read uninterrupted for 3 hours - what a luxury! Barbara gave us an excellent dinner recommendation, Ella's in Westerly. Best of all, we were given a checklist of broad breakfast choices to drop off at the front desk when we went to dinner. It included blueberry waffles and eggs benedict, but we are constantly struggling with our weight and so were happy to be able to choose granola (delicious) with lots of fresh fruit and yogurt instead. You can also choose among 4 times to have breakfast, and you can have it brought to your room or served in the main dining room with other guests (this is more enjoyable). We didn't get to sit in the garden because of the wet weather, but it is quite beautiful. Overall, I can't think of a better B&B we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: We liked Verona because it is in a separate building a few yards away from the main house and has a...

We have stayed here at The Villa twice now. Wonderful! Well worth the price of admission. The quality is very consistent. Michael and Barbara are the best of hosts and know the reign very well, helping with restaurant offerings and great suggestions for activities. Within twenty minutes in three directions you will find tons of fun, including great golf, casinos, beaches, shops and wonderful restaurants. The staff is bright, cheerful and very accommodating. The uniqueness of the rooms is a delight and makes one want to return many times to try them all out. I won’t pick a favorite because they are all perfect for different settings. And now the best of all, breakfast! Michael and his staff will prepare and deliver the finest breakfasts you will ever enjoy, anywhere! In your room, by the pool, or in the dining room, you will not be disappointed in the daily offerings. Worth the trip just to have the breakfast. Michael, thank you for the pulled pork, poached egg extravaganza you prepared for a second year in a row. Simply the best, in thirty years of travel.

Room Tip: Roma is very beach like and bright Groto is very convenient and has an awsome bath room Cielo is v...

Just got back from our first stay at The Villa and we would definitely go back. The setting is serene and lovely and our room was spacious and very well appointed (we stayed in The Verona). Barbara and Michael are wonderful hosts. Barbara knows the area well and pointed us towards our most memorable dinner there at the nearby Ella's. Michael's homemade breakfasts were superb, both delivered to our balcony and enjoyed poolside. We loved their entire staff and on our last day, we found ourselves wanting to lounge by the pool rather than fighting the crowds at the beach. Westerly/Watch Hill has been a favorite area of mine for years and I'm so happy that we found this beautiful place to stay.

Room Tip: The Verona is set apart from the main house with a balcony and large jacuzzi tub and offers more pri...

this year we went back to The Villa for our 26th Anniversary, for 6 days, 5 nites. It was spectacular! Each morning the breakfast was worth taking pictures of (see my pix). Delicious and plentiful. The atmosphere is romantic, secluded, quiet, elegant and just plain wonderful. I cought a cold in the middle of the week, so we just stayed by the pool - gee poor us :) instead of trekking to the beach. I rested, the innkeeper came by to chat and it was just lovely. The rooms are marvelous. We had to change rooms on the last nite, but all I did was pack up, which I had to do anyhow, and separate what we needed, then the fabulous girls they have working for them there, put everything in our new room....The Cielo. Our first room was The Verona which we stayed in last year....I love the balcony over the carriage house. The Cielo is in the main building, and what a room. My husband liked it even better. We WILL go back and I can't wait.

Room Tip: No fitness center, but it did have a pool, which is a big plus for me. Most B&Bs don't.

This was our second visit--we first stayed at the Villa in the summer of 2011--and our experience once again rated two thumbs up. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are very nice, the hosts--Michael and Barbara--are both very friendly and informative, and, last, but not least, the gourmet breakfasts are the equivalent of anything you would find at a brunch at a top restaurant. They serve the breakfasts poolside if you prefer and it's such a relaxing way to start the day. The inn is convenient to both the local beaches and downtown Watch Hill. As a bonus, Michael and Barbara have a refrigerator poolside stocked with beer and bottled water that guests are free to use anytime, and, in the late afternoon, put out a tray of desserts and liqueur.

My husband & I celebrated our 10th Anniversary last weekend at THE VILLA. Upon arriving, we noticed how beautiful the gardens, the setting, and the pool were. Barbara, the innkeeper welcomed us. She was very nice and very informative. She brought us to our room, showed us where everything was both inside and out. The rooms were well appointed with a spacious bathroom, very clean. Breakfast was served both mornings which was cooked by her hubby Michael. Great choices and delicious!!!!!!. It was so peaceful, we opted to stay by the pool and enjoy our surroundings instead of going to the beach. All of their employees were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Villa for a couple of days in July 2012 and loved every aspect of our stay.
The fact that it is not right on the beach in Westerly actually turned out to be an advantage because it was not busy and the atmosphere perfect to relax for a few days.
The biggest highlights were the friendliness and hospitality of the owners, the wonderful room and outside garden and pool. We had our delicous breakfasts at the poolside, a perfect way to start the day.
There really is nothing negative to say about the place. We would (and will) come back in the future.
