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.

Golden age of hospitality still shines at this inn in the heart of Watch Hill Village

The golden age of hospitality is not just a quaint phrase at the Watch Hill Inn: It’s part of the inn’s history. Established as the Narragansett House in 1845, the inn saw distinguished visitors from Clark Gable to Henry Ford brought to its doors via an electric trolley system from Westerly, R.I. They came for the kind of respite a seaside location like Watch Hill offers, and that’s why guests still come to this gracious village inn, with its 21 suite-style rooms, some with gas fireplaces, feather-topped beds and all with Smart TVs and iPads for ordering in-room dining and spa services. Access to nearby sister properties means guests enjoy a private beach, pools and complimentary kayaks. See the website for information on COVID-19 readiness.

Lovely inn brings you back to times of gracious hospitality and surroundings

When the Weekapaug Inn opened its doors in 1899, guests to the family resort were greeted by the owners at the front door. This gracious inn still maintains that sense of New England hospitality, in everything from its spacious and comfortable 27 rooms and four suites with cove, pond, village or ocean views to its slate of activities for all ages, from shuffleboard and bocce courts to a seasonal outdoor lap pool and sun-deck Jacuzzi to lagoon boat tours to a hunt for “fairy houses” on the inn’s gorgeous property. With its red cedar Cape Cod-style shingles and sandy beach, the inn truly brings you back to gentler times and perfect vacations.

Resort’s storied past, beginning in 1868, is a tale of seaside elegance and comfort

The narrative of elegant seaside ambiance and meticulous service continues at the Ocean House Resort, a luxury hotel that honors its storied past. The resort, with world-class amenities and exquisite accommodations, pays homage to New England’s golden age of hospitality. Opening in 1868, the grand Victorian hotel became known as a genteel resort, where families came to “summer” and relax by the sea. That tradition continues today, as families enjoy their time on the white sands of a private beach, play croquet on the lawn, sail aboard a classic yacht, dine al fresco among ocean breezes or relax in an ocean-inspired suite with turn-of-the-20th-century decor.
