Rhode Island's Weekapaug Inn to reopen after $20M transformation

Ocean House Management, LLC has announced that the Weekapaug Inn in Weekapaug, R.I., will re-open in October 2012 after a $20-million transformation. Ocean House Management, LLC has assumed management of the historic hotel, and the Weekapaug Inn now joins the Ocean House as a collection of seaside resorts.

Undergoing a complete renovation with the support of the Rhode Island Historic Preservation & Heritage Commission, the Weekapaug Inn is located in the community of Weekapaug, R.I., with views of Quonochontaug Pond, and the Atlantic just beyond. Originally built in 1899, the Inn is inspired by classic Cape-Cod style architecture, covered with red cedar shingles and accented by dark brown trim. Now under construction, the original 67 rooms will become 27 guestrooms, and four two-bedroom Signature Suites, giving the inn 31 rooms.

Other additions include a three-lane 75-foot lap pool connecting to a fitness center, in the area where the tennis courts were located previously. Rooms will have bathrooms with heated floors and towel racks, and four wood-burning fireplaces in the public spaces. There will be three dining outlets that will offer New England coastal cuisine.
