Family of 12 stayed very comfortable in this home for a week in July. Near enough to the beach (if you're driving anyway, there's no difference between 5 or 10 minutes, plus it's a beautiful drive backroads). We enjoyed many meals in the impressive kitchen. Plenty of space for games, puzzles, and hanging out.
Wal-Mart is a 4 minute drive down the road for supplies. We had Peapod delivered when we first arrived, they made it down to dirt driveway just fine! The house is in a very private setting. There are a lot of stairs, so the elevator came in quite handy for unpacking the heavy stuff. If you have early walkers or crawlers, you'll definitely want to pack a baby gate or two.
Irene was a great host.
Our family enjoyed a great week in Westerly! This house was steps to the beach. The property owners, Nancy and Dave were very accommodating and did a wonderful job making this house perfect to stay in.
