Historic lodging of RI and Newport welcomes you for a cozy getaway
Rhode Island teems with history, from the northern Blackstone Valley, where the American Industrial Revolution was born in the textile mills there, to the shores of Newport, with its cobbled colonial streets and 19th-century Gilded Age mansions. Rhode Island historical lodging, including first class hotels, places visitors right at the places where history was made. These RI hotels and lodgings often are luxurious all by themselves, a wonderful place simply to relax and contemplate the passing of time.

Hospitality, location continue to define this charming Rhode Island inn
In 1899, Frederick and Phebe Buffum opened a small inn perched on a peninsula between two salt ponds. Charmed by their hospitality and the inn’s ideal location, guests came, then came back, year after year. And they are still coming to the red cedar-shingled Weekapaug Inn, inspired by classic Cape Cod style with the same attention to guest comfort initiated by its founding family. Luxurious rooms and suites, where windows open to sea breezes, feature custom vintage and modern furnishings and stunning water views. Gourmet dining includes complimentary breakfast and Thursday night clambakes. Guest activities range from naturalist outings and kayaking to wine tastings and yoga. Access to a private beach also distinguishes this remarkable Relais & Chateaux inn.

History and hospitality meet at this waterfront Victorian Inn
By the middle of the 19th century, Narragansett had become a prominent seaside resort. Quieted during the Civil War, it rose again to rival Newport in elegance and social prestige. It once featured the Narragansett Pier Casino, designed by the most prominent American architectural firm of the era, landscaped by the revered Frederick Law Olmstead, and populated by many of America's most affluent and important citizens. Today, the town and the namesake of the proud Native American tribe is set amidst elm trees and filled with the homes of 19th century whaling captains. In perfect harmony, this historic and Victorian lodging and landmark welcomes you to enjoy its modern amenities and waterfront pleasures on Narragansett Bay, hard by the Atlantic.

The modern, restored property – named one of the nation’s 20 most beautiful hotels by CNN in 2016 – maintains the standards of the golden age of hospitality while offering modern amenities, from award-winning dining and a luxury spa to elegant suites rich in old-world decor (including elements from the original building’s interior) and modern technology like valet panels. The resort’s 13 acres overlook a private white-sand beach and include a croquet lawn and putting green. The nearby village of Watch Hill is a charming New England treat.
