My husband and I rented the Westgate Watson House 2-bedroom apartment for three months this past winter while we were renovating a cottage nearby. It could not have been a more perfect place for us all the way around!
Wickford is a gem of a town and we continue to be pleasantly surprised with the people, restaurants, and general feel of the area.
We have been running a bed and breakfast inn on Block Island for the past 13 years and are pretty picky about details. Even though the building dates back to 1806, the apartment is updated, clean and very comfortable. The character still remains, but is totally functional. It felt like our home for the time we were there.
Jan our landlord is terrific and I suspect we will stay friends going forward. She was very helpful, especially during the blizzard. I think we were the only street in the town that continued to have power the entire time. There was a back-up generator that she set up for us just in case.
The location is perfect, with views of the inlet. We miss it already and hope to be back there in the Fall once we resume our renovations.
Thanks for such a special place!
