Classic Cape Cod. The building sports weathered cedar shingles accented by rust-colored shutters and dark brown trim; crushed clamshell walkways, hydrangeas and sea grasses enhance the beach house look. Interiors look to nature for design inspiration: a beach scene mural in the stairwell, Audubon prints in the lobby, rattan and wicker furniture mixed with traditional pieces in the common areas. A palette of cream, white, beige and soft greens replicates the colors of the New England shore, which is on show through the multiple uncluttered windows.
Bed and Bath
Spacious rooms have simple but comfortable furnishings, from braided rugs on hardwood floors to small tables with slat-backed chairs. Feathertop beds are dressed in Frette linens, and while there are no phones or televisions, each room is connected to the front desk by an intercom, and you can request a TV if you must. All baths have heated marble floors and towel racks (in the cool season), and many have old-fashioned clawfoot tubs, along with modern showers. Toiletries are custom-made by Red Flower for the Weekapaug and the Ocean House.
A fitness center and heated outdoor lap pool are adjacent to the main building. The wide white sand beach is a five-minute walk along a sidewalk that skirts the pond, passing sea grass, beach roses and the multi-balconied mansions that make up the tony village of Weekapaug. During the summer season, the inn operates the Bath House, which has showers, beach chairs, umbrellas and a snack bar serving Del’s lemonade, a Rhode Island classic. The inn’s formal dining room, the Restaurant, presents modern interpretations of New England coastal fare on a menu that changes daily. The sunny Garden Room offers casual dining and drinks. Breakfast is included in the room rate, and a 24-hour guest pantry is stocked with various coffee options and fresh-baked cookies.
How to Get There
We have been lucky enough to stay at other Relais & Chateaux properties around the world, but the Weekapaug Inn managed to elevate the experience to another level.
The reservation and followup process was easy and extremely helpful. Then, from the moment we stepped out of our car on arrival, all interactions were top-notch. The level of personal service from every staff member was exceptional at every turn.
Our room overlooking the cove was beautiful, stunningly decorated and extremely comfortable.
We enjoyed our meals at the restaurant and the activities that the Inn put on that weekend. We made some last minute changes to some activities that we had preplanned with the Inn and everyone was extremely accommodating.
The Inn is only about an hour from our house in Massachusetts, but we were truly able to switch off and relax while there. We will definitely return and are looking forward to trying out the Inn in other seasons.
We had a fantastic stay at the Weekapaug Inn. We stayed in a Fenway Suite, which was incredibly comfortable and private. The room also had great views of the Pond. From check in to check out, the service was impeccable. Our dinner at the Restaurant was delicious, with top-notch service to match. We can’t wait to come back!!!
I surprised my adult son with a birthday getaway at Weekapaug Inn. From the moment I made the reservation to the moment we left the Inn at the end of our stay, every interaction and experience exceeded both of our expectations. The Inn itself is beautiful and elegant, yet homey. Combine this with the warm interactions you have with every person you encounter...and you have the result of a truly memorable stay. We hope to make visiting the Inn an annual birthday pilgrimage (my birthday is in Feb, too!).
Being able to make the quick trip over to the Ocean House to enjoy the Spa and the Jazz brunch was an added benefit. Highly recommend taking a complimentary tour of the Ocean House property and its high end suites...wow! If you like the feel of a larger hotel (more hustle and bustle), Ocean House will do the trick. We were very happy to enjoy its amenities, but return "home" to the Inn as our base camp!
Thanks to everyone who made our stay special!
Had been looking forward to dining at the Inn for a long time. Was disappointed by the indifferent manner of the staff (with the exception of our waitress who was very attentive and helpful) followed by a ‘just ok’ meal. While the menu had some very interesting options, the execution was indifferent e.g., minimal portions, a small amount of lobster in the omelet and almost no cheese, not well seasoned tomato base for the poached eggs (which were perfectly poached), and dry fluke. A set price v a la carte was not explained, so being charged for the breakfast pastries and dessert which we thought were included (and proved not to be memorable) was a surprise. The food and the hospitality aspect of the service need attention which perhaps then would justify the others’ reviews. Perhaps we went on off day, but at this point, see no reason to go back.
The staff is amazing! We spent the weekend for my birthday. They went out of their way to make my birthday special. Every staff member I had the pleasure of interacting with wished me a happy birthday. The inn has this wonderful atmosphere and they really go above and beyond to make every guest's visit perfect. Dinner at the restaurant was one of the best meals I've ever had. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive. They helped me pick the right wine to go with my meal and checked on us frequently to make sure everything was to our liking. They really treated us like family! The service you recieve makes it well worth the price.
