West Winds, also known as the Burlingame-Quinn House, is an historic home at 300 Wakefield Street in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The site was built c. 1740 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

The house seems to have been built between 1736 and 1753, probably c.1740. At the time of purchase by George Burlingame (1777-1872) in 1819, the property encompassed 270 acres (110 ha) of farmland. In 1921 it was bought by Robert E. Quinn, a Rhode Island state senator, lieutenant governor, governor, and judge. It was Quinn who christened the property "West Winds".[2] The building has been extensively renovated and expanded several times during its history. Much of the original farmland still surrounds the property as a golf course.
