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
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.
Not sure how it’s even possible, but each visit is better than the last! This was my fourth or fifth stay at the Inn, and it was, once again, spectacular! The attention to detail is unparalleled—the accommodations, food, staff and decor are all remarkable in an understated, New England-y way! The Christmas decorations were stunning and St. Nick at brunch was most convincing! Worth every penny—already planning a return visit! Thank you, each and every at WI, for all you do!
It was our first time and all of us were thrilled with everything. Dan, our server was wonderful, we love to have fun and we did. We also love great food and beverage and we had that as well. We sat by the fireplace after dinner knowing we would be back.
