About the property

Short Walk To Downtown Westerly Including Live Theater; Minutes To Ocean.

Summer season ends officially this Labor Day week end, but the crowds are gone, the beaches are serene, and Summer into Fall is the time to enjoy off season rates as well. This cozy room speaks serenity and light, and is a perfect get away for someone seeking a day, week or month of retreat. Private , small room with shower; functional and fun in an elegant old home. Private entrances and newly redone. Located on Rt3 and a .5 mile walk into downtown Westerly featuring Wilcox Park and summer presentations of "Shakespeare in the Park", Westerly Artists Guild, Granite Theater with live performances, great shopping, and excellent dining. Visit the new bookstore with outdoor tables and enjoy a latte and pastry. Minutes away from some of the loveliest beaches on the east coast. Westerly airport is only a few miles you can charter a flight to Rhode Island's jewel in the ocean, Block Island and bike or moped around to beaches or sightseeing, or fly into Boston. Westerly train station .5 miles, and you can venture into NYC, Providence, Boston and many other destinations.Westerly enjoys venues for every season of the year and the coming Fall will anticipate Clyde's Cider Mill in nearby Mystic, and dozens of other events. Birders enjoy views from Watch Hill dunes as migration along the Atlantic flyway get underway. Winter enjoys Christmas and 12th Night and Spring has myriad events to keep your interest year round. Perfect for one with day bed/sofa that pulls out to sleep two. Though there is no stove, there is a counter and sink as pictured, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.The room has an air conditioner, ceiling fan, and 32" flat screen TV. I want to convey that the room is quite small; roughly 9' X 15', with an attached shower and toilet, but very functional and bright. Off street parking in rear of house.Rt 3 is a busy road, but the room is quiet and comfy; a little nest of repose. Come and enjoy Rhode Island!

About The Owner

Having grown up in CT, I'd been coming to RI for over forty years. I lived close to the sound in CT, but it was the ocean's draw that made moving to RI a necessity for me. I lived in quiet and historic Ashaway for a while, and enjoyed proximity to my favorite beach, but when I saw this house on the market and was able to see the elegance and character I knew it had enjoyed in the past, I committed to restoring it back to something of it's former condition. I can remember when it had terra cotta tile roofing and a huge tree grew on the property.

It's been quite a challenge, as it was in terrible condition when I moved in, but the house seems to know I'm working to make it shine once again.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2015

Why The Owner chose Westerly

The detail in the original light fixtures, and hardware, the solid soundness of the house. The lovely wood and high ceilings for starters.

What makes this studio unique

Just half a mile to town and there's beautiful Wilcox Park with very old specimen trees, the library, theater, coffee shops, and a terrific variety of dining and shopping.

There are art galleries and antiquing and the YMCA, and the train station if you want to venture out to Boston Providence or NYC.

Owner's Response: I just read my recent guest's review which made me smile, and I am so delighted with the people who have come to visit here at Heron Flies in Westerly. I always wish we had time to chat and get to know one another more, but my guests have been so upbeat that it seems you can get a read almost instantly by their positive dispositions. I so look forward to greeting guests in the future, and I hope the one's that I've enjoyed greeting for the first time will return again to enjoy what life in Westerly, Rhode Island has to offer. It doesn't matter the season, Westerly is a town for all seasons. It has been my pleasure to host here at Heron Flies, and I look forward to future arrivals. Happy trails to all, Teresa
