Overview

About the property

1-2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2-4

Historic Waterside Location in Wickford Village. The 1806 Westgate Watson House, reflected across the water of Academy Cover, is one of the most painted and photographed scenes in Wickford and the region for its picturesque setting and serene New England charm. Just a short block from the Village main street, but at the end of a side street, you’ll feel as if you’re in a magical place, a tranquil oasis but still right in the center of everything. Relax in a peaceful sitting area in the yard and let the ripple of the tidal waterfall transport you back to a simpler time. A weeping willow frames your view of the Village across Academy Cove.

1806 Westgate Watson House: This is a first floor apartment in an historic house. It can be rented as a one or two bedroom space with options of a queen bed in one room and twin beds in the other. The house has an interesting history both for its role in the village and also architecturally for old-house buffs. It started as an 1806 Federal colonial but was 'modernized' in the mid 1800's with a Greek Revival facelift and later expanded when they attached a 1750's ell. Modern conveniences (such as indoor plumbing!) were accommodated to the existing floor plan with minimal changes. While care has been taken to preserve the historic integrity of the house, the living spaces were totally refreshed in the summer of 2011 with a completely new kitchen and updated bathroom. The space combines the best of the old and new without compromising comfort. The rooms are sunny and airy with numerous windows, giving wonderful views and letting in the cool coastal breeze.

This is an apartment within a larger house. Outside, in the yard, there are both shared common areas and also more private areas. See listing # 227850.

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this property! For starters Jan was so attentive and kind! She was only a quick text away if we had any questions and she even checked in on us when the rain came in our first day. The house was clean, comfortable and cozy. We were pleasantly surprised that the town was so cute and all the shops, restaurants and coffee shop were only a block or two away. We look forward to staying here again!

A wonderful late summer get-away

  • 5 of 5

I'm afraid if I rave too much this well-kept secret won't be such a secret anymore. Wonderful historic house in Wickford Village that's a pleasant walk or short drive to wherever you want to go. Jan is a great host and makes it all that much better. Couldn't be more pleased with our visit.
