Ten years ago, we stayed at the old Weekapaug Inn in Rhode Island, and let’s just say, I vowed never to return and leave it at that. Fast forward to this past July 4th weekend, where we actually did return again, after learning of a twenty million dollar renovation to this establishment in 2011 (and hearing great things from some very reliable friends) and I can honestly say that the new Weekapaug Inn in Westerly, Rhode Island, is now one of my favorite summer spots…
Just like the Ocean House, where we stayed back in 2011,
this hotel has been lovingly restored by Chuck Royce, the financial
titan who has bought up small inns and historical landmarks along the north east coast and painstakingly recaptured the
glory of each property.
The food, decor, service, location and even the weather (but for one very rainy day) were all first rate. Here’s a peek at a few of the highlights, including our cozy room which had my favorite Red Flower soaps and toiletries throughout (the orange blossom is amazing) the lobby decor and one of several enchanting fireplaces…even the parking lot was charming as seen below!
