The Villa is a sure Hidden Jewel!!! Thankyou Mike and Barbara for a wonderful stay.. Gina and Scott
Nice cozy location with wonderful grounds. Had to pool to ourselves, Cozy rooms! I wish we could have spent more time. My only suggestion would be to have nice mellow music piped out to pool area on low volume during the daytime.
As much as I love Woody Hill and it's owner Ellen M., I don't want people to find out how WONDERFUL this little slice of heaven is!! I've been going here for years and summer is not summer without at least one visit here! Most of the time, the huge, sparkling pool is empty (except for me!) since the other guests are off enjoying the Westerly Beaches so nearby! Ellen encourages her guests to feel free to wander about and enjoy her gardens and grounds. Woody Hill is my home away from home...let's just keep this little secret to ourselves!
We decided to try a bed and breakfast for a few days away during the off-season on the coast of Rhode Island. This far exceeded our expectations. The Villa was beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The private jacuzzi tub with candles and bath salts was a pleasant surprise. The food was fantastic, and the Cardiffs were wonderful hosts with extensive knowledge of the area. Their recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants made a quick getaway perfect. We will definitely return!
While my husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Villa, we were highly disappointed that they did not honor Bed and Breakfast.com gift certificates, forcing us to pay the full amount. They insist that they do not participate with Bed and Breakfast.com even though they are listed as one of the three in Westerly, and the first to appear on the page. Overall however, a very relaxing stay.
Definitely one of the best places to stay along the RI shore. Convenient location not far from the beach and yet relatively quiet. Clean and well maintained. Nicely decorated rooms with good amenities. Comfortable beds. Friendly helpful and knowledgable innkeepers who seem to have thought about the needs of their guests. We will return.
laid back atmosphere with old world charm. Lovely, accommodating hostess and staff. Situated in lovely setting, at end of road, with beautiful fields, large erratics, and luxurious in-ground pool. Only 2 miles from beach.
The Innkeepers, Michael and Barbara, made our stay a great experience for my husband and myself. Warm and friendly, they made us feel so welcome and more than just paying guest to their beautiful Inn. Our room was romantic overlooking the courtyard. The view of the Inn and grounds made you feel like you were in another time and place. The pictures of the Inns rooms have not been updated, they have been remodeled and are so lovely. Our full breakfast of many choices, was served to us in our room and where so very very good and generous. We can not wait to go back and be pampered and enjoy the Inn and it's keepers, we feel we left as friends.
Woody Hill has beautiful grounds, enchanting gardens and an ever warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Garden Room is wonderful with excellent views of the property, a private entrance and bathroom. My fiance proposed to me here and in addition to being one of our favorite places to vacation (three years in a row), Woody Hill now holds a very special place in our hearts.
My son, Mother and I stayed one night with Ellen. I was a little nervous because my mother can be quite the critic. Well, we were all blown away by our room (we had the Family Room), the house and the grounds. Everything was meticulous and Ellen was charming and so helpful. My son loved swimming in the pool. We can't wait to go back....we may be booking another night a lot sooner than we expected!!!
Enjoy a home away from home where hospitality abounds, sit by the fireplace on a cold morning or poolside on a warm day. Listen to the breeze, the chirping birds and insects communicating. Sit back, enjoy a good book or head back to civilization to go antiquing.
We rented the whole inn and had my daughters wedding at the inn. The innkeeper let us use the kitchen for food prep, cleaned up before I had a chance and could not have been anymore pleasant and accomodating. It is a beautiful place for a vacation, short stay or wedding. We highly reccommend!
My boyfriend (at the time) and I stood at the Villa in March--we experiece lots of romance, the atmosphere in the Cielo room was just that, pure romance. The wine, chocolates and the owners, were wonderful. we are planning to re-visit this November--only to come as Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Major. Yes we got married this past October and are taking a mini-honeymoon at the Villa.
This is a beautiful property with many extras. The landscape,jacuzzi, pool and gardens all make you feel as if you are on vacation in another country. The rooms are outstanding and huge. The full breakfast is just wonderful and better than any resturaunt. It is located in a perfect location to access the beach, Watch Hill, Mystic, Newport and downtown Westerly. We did all of the above in a weekend and still hung out and relaxed by the pool. You will be pampered by the owners and never want to leave. If you like to stay in luxury this is your property. In addition, the owners will send you to the best places to eat dinner.
This property is wonderful.. You feel as if you are in another country on vacation. The rooms are stunning and the grounds are beyond beautiful. Convenient to everything from the beach, Watch Hill, Newport, Mystic. Breakfast is better than any resturant. Service is impeccable.
