About Karen Berkley
Owned by our extended family, we renovated this home to enjoy for vacations and holidays together.
Karen Berkley purchased this House in 1972
Why Karen Berkley chose Westerly
Our family has vacationed in this area since our great-grandparents started coming to the in the early 1900's. When it was originally built in 1972, the house was featured in Women's Day magazine as one of the original modular concept homes.

House is perfectly situated for a beach vacation, so close to Fenway Beach. We were a group of seven adults and an infant. Bedrooms were generous and we loved having three bathrooms. The variety of living spaces worked well for us and the kitchen well equipped.
Pictures don't do justice
What a perfect home for our multi-generational vacation. Exceeded our expectations in every way, from the very well appointed kitchen, the ample space for 10, the many thoughtful touches throughout this lovely space inside and out. We've done a lot of VRBO etc stays, and this one was a hit for all of us. Highly recommend a stay here.
Family friendly house and location - perfect!
Family friendly house and location - perfect! My children didn't want to go home...and are already asking when we can go back!
Thank you, Jason; we'd love to have you back! We're so very happy that you all enjoyed your time at Whale's Watch.
outstanding in every way
First of all the house itself is incredibly unique.. It is like a treasure trove of family and antiques throughout, yet homey and welcoming at the same time. Having access to the salt water pond was so much more than I realized. I fell in love with kayaking. So relaxing. And to be able to row over to the other side then walk to a private beach without sitting elbow to elbow next to people was both a delight and adventure. The grandchildren, ages 6 and 3, certainly made use of the yard. They loved the swing and the zip line. They also loved the rocks and the firepit. They would go into the rocks and play imaginary games. The yard, for us, was like a babysitter. I could go on forever but this house is has so much to offer. It was perfect for our family get-together. Thank you so much Karen!
You've captured the essence of our home. Thank you for your wonderful comments!
Feels like a family's home, not a rental property.
Pros: privacy, a path to the pond with a dock, a nice lawn for kids to play. Well-equipped kitchen and in a great town - beaches are great. Fenway Beach has a cute little sandwich/breakfast & lunch restaurant across the street.
Con: need a car to access the beaches, and the bathroom is a port-a-potty.
We are so please you enjoyed our home and the area!
One quick note: the port-a-potty is at the beach, not the house ;)
Wish we were still in Haversham
We enjoyed our 2 weeks in Haversham! We swam, dove and flipped from the dock, paddled on the pond, and canoed across the pond to the beach. We rented for two weeks and our kids were able to participate in the Weekapaug YC sailing program. We used the beach buttons and parking passes to go to the Inn Beach which is 2 miles long and is incredible for running, walking, beach games, skim boarding and swimming. Some days, we drove to Fenway Beach because we took many toys to boogie board in the waves, also great for skim boarding. The kids took surf lessons four mornings at Fenway Beach. We also went mountain biking at Burlingame, just a 10 minute drive away. We enjoyed restaurants in Westerly and Stonington. And, we ventured to the Weekapaug Inn after the beach a couple days for drinks, appetizers and games of shuffleboard and bocce. The house had everything we needed to grill and eat at home. We enjoyed bonfires. And the Cowles kindly left s'more fixings! Thank you for sharing your home. We want to spend more time in RI on the pond and at the beach next year!!
Thank you for your kind review! it is a special place and we are so happy that you were able to make the most of both our home and the surrounding area, which we love!
Easy access to nearby beaches as well as Watch Hill and Newport. Close to Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium, antiquing, winery tours and casinos.
