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
A friend and I visited on 11/2 for an event at the Inn titled Seal's Day. We enjoyed a boat ride out on the pond along with a few others and a superb Naturalist. We did get to see the seals (they had binoculars), many birds and enjoyed a journey out to see the jetty heading out to the Atlantic. The Inn itself is a charming, quaint sister property of the Ocean House (which we love). The views and the grounds are really calming and serene. We got to the Restaurant after lunch hours but they allowed us to sit there because of a wedding gatheing happening at the bar and that was much appreciated. Our waitress Elizabeth was friendly and attentive. We much enjoyed the lighter fare menu and I suspect the regular menu to be of the quality. Prices can vary but it's well worth it, especially on a fun girl's day out. Thank you.
Stopped in with the wife for a drink.
We found it to be stuffy and expensive.
$15 for an old fashioned . Rooms are outrageously expensive... but hey... if money is no concern this is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy.
From the gorgeous ambiance, to the relaxing views of nature, delicious food and cocktails... the Weekapaug Inn is a hidden treasure.
The service was impeccable, the manager took care of all of our families needs and went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. I can’t wait to take our friends here for my birthday dinner soon!
I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion
