AAA Inspector Notes
Be prepared to "unplug" and experience "barefoot elegance" at this turn-of-the-century resort. This fully restored family-friendly resort offers so many unique activities you may never care to leave. There is a full time "naturalist" on staff that coordinates daily activities, which may include bird-watching, beach-walk craft making, and star gazing at night. Try your hand at shuffleboard, bocce, kayaking or even yoga on paddleboards in the summer on the calm pond waters. In season, an electric boat cruise goes out twice daily and provides a guided history of the area. Access to a private beach with butlers is also available in the warmer months. S'mores by the outdoor fire pit is offered in the evening, weather permitting. There is also a complimentary guest pantry with four-times-daily changed snacks, soda, water, and self-serve gourmet coffee machine that will cater to your espresso/cappuccino fix. The resort first opened its doors in 1899, and then moved to its breathtaking Quonochontaug Pond location in 1939 after the great hurricane of 1938. It was then fully restored and reopened in 2011 with today's luxe amenities, including Matouk bedding, rain shower heads and spa-quality bath amenities. Don't expect modern conveniences like phones as this property offers a nostalgic intercom system instead. In winter, guests can cozy up by the fireplace with a good book while sipping a complimentary hot chocolate and apple cider or venture outside to enjoy snowshoeing. Guests have access to amenities at their sister property, the Ocean House in Watch Hill. Hotel staff can make reservations and schedule complimentary in-house transportation to their sister property's spa or fine dining restaurant located approximately five miles away.
