After a $20 million down-to-the-studs renovation and a Relais & Châteaux designation, this historic inn reopened in October 2012. It’s billed as a more casual alternative to its nearby sister property, the five-star Ocean House in nearby Watch Hill. The 27 guest rooms and four two-bedroom suites come with original maple furniture, Frette linens, bathrooms with marble counters, and views of Quonochontaug Sound (but not a phone or television in sight). Guests can play bocce, relax on the private beach (complete with a snack bar), and take advantage of the new fitness center with swimming and yoga. There are two dining venues, including the simply named Restaurant, which specializes in New England coastal cuisine. Want to commune with nature? Resident naturalist Mark Bullinger gives bird-watching tours and astronomy lessons.
