122 Sakonnet Point Rd.,
Little Compton,
United States,

On Sakonnet Point, 30 miles from Newport’s crowded beaches, the 13-room property is a quiet hideaway. The 155-year-old stone Italianate villa just opened after a two-year renovation. Despite contemporary flourishes—tiled Japanese soaking tubs; platform beds—the narrow front-hall staircase retains its 19th-century scrollwork detailing, and the original wooden shutters still hang in recessed windows that catch the sea breeze off Rhode Island Sound. Next door, the shingled horse barn contains a four-room spa and a Tuscan-style restaurant.
