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
Wonderfully comfortable. Great staff and sincere service. The inn is situated in a spot that inspires in every season. Lots of great activity options including sailing, electric motor launch tours, kayaking and biking.
I just recently spent 2 nights at the weekapaug inn and loved the location and for the most part the hotel, BUT our room rate was just slightly over $1000 a night and I was more than a little disappointed to find too few towels in my room, and big communal bottles of shampoo, soap and conditioner, and finally an amenities kit with 2 earbuds, and 2 tiny pieces of cotton which would have only worked well for a small mouse. For the cost of this room they honestly should have better bathroom amenities. They towels were old and on their last legs. For an additional $10.00 a night which I would not have noticed they could have provided me with a more generous amount of cotton and earbuds. I know this may seem like a tiny complaint, but honestly... if you had paid that much for a hotel room, sharing shampoo with other's, too few cotton and q-tips... it's a ridiculous savings for them that just left me with the taste in my mouth of having been ripped off.
My wife and I once again had an exceptional stay at this first class hotel. The Inn has so much authenticity which is probably due to salvaging as many antiques, furniture, art work etc. as possible from the original inn and by the skill of the new architect and designers.
The beautifully printed daily events sheet which is left on the bed each night is impressive.
Ms. Logan Thorpe in reception went out of her way to make us feel welcome, I predict a great hotel career for her.
What a sensible idea to ask guests when they arrive the approximate times that they would like their rooms made up each morning and also the time they would like evening turn down service.
All of the staff were friendly and professional.
The beach attendant was accommodating.
After spending over forty years in the hotel field I must comment how unusual and great that the VP for the hotel group that runs the Weekapaug Inn and the Ocean House personally reads and responds to guest reviews.
There are some ordinary hotels that get mediocre reviews on this site and you never see any response from the management. Maybe that is why they are ordinary and this hotel is extraordinary.
My wife and I have already booked a return reservation for November 10th.
