The historic Weekapaug Inn in the Westerly village of Weekapaug is re-opening in October, after being closed since 2007 to undergo a $20 million renovation and expansion. The inn, set alongside Quonochontaug Pond and beyond that, the Atlantic, is launching an introductory "Prelude" package with 30-percent savings this fall and winter. The package at the four-seasons inn, which now has amenities such as heated bathroom floors, runs from Oct. 7 through April 15, and includes 30 percent off the best available rate; a one-category upgrade based on availability at arrival; a $50 resort credit for us at Weekapaug Inn or any restaurant outlet or spa service at Ocean House at Watch Hill, the sister property of the inn; and daily breakfast.

Owners of the inn say that with the support of the Rhode Island Historic Preservation and Heritage Commission, the seaside inn has stayed true to the original 1899 structure, giving guests a sense of history along with modern conveniences. The inn has 27 guest rooms, four two-bedroom signature suites, and a three-lane, 75-foot lap pool, and fitness center. Guests also have use of the Ocean House's goodies, including its Forbes Five Star OH! Spa, five restaurants, championship croquet court, squash courts and private 650-foot beach.

Package rates start at $255 a night (includes discount) from Oct. 7-31; from Nov. 1 to April 15, excluding holidays, rates start at $147 a night (includes discount). Check it out at www.weekapauginn.com or call 888-813-7862.
