When you conjure up your dream home, does it include a white picket fence and an oceanfront view? Well, the Ocean Rose Inn possesses those features and so much more. Guests who have stayed at the picturesque Narragansett haven can confirm the Inn’s luscious looks, as well as the bountiful list of activities nearby. And although you can’t reside there, a visit to the quaint hotel is sure to provide the rejuvenating and inspiring retreat you need.
Pulling up in front of the landmark Victorian-style Inn, you are immediately struck by two things: a breathtaking ocean view and an authentic nautical charm. The charm’s genuineness presents a clear housing of history. Since it’s opening in 1897, Ocean Rose has been hosting glittering vacations for countless guests amid its’ 31 rooms. It is known today as one of the last original oceanfront Victorian inns in Southern Rhode Island. While the interior stays true to those roots, don’t fret that you’ll be creeping across creaky floorboards and dusty furniture – much of the Ocean Rose has already been beautifully renovated, and the rest is yet to come!
While the building still exudes old world charm, it has been updated to reflect both its lineage and setting. Everything from the traditional wood-paneled lobby to the cheery bright guestrooms has been lacquered with an attractive style. You’ll not only know that you’re at the beach from the unbeatable views, but the wonderful seafaring décor, which is splashed throughout. You will find that the renovated rooms offer a retro surf shack feeling, a fitting theme for the town of Narragansett.
Turtle Soup, the onsite restaurant, offers a fantastic dining experience from start to finish. The main room and bar emits the feeling of being in a ship with its dark wood framing fantastic views of the ocean. They even have a private room for guests celebrating special occasions – you can’t beat that! It’s the perfect place to sit and discuss all of the exciting activities you can fill your days with while at Ocean Rose, including nearby: surfing, biking, clamming, whale-watching, kayaking, sailing, shopping, golfing and, of course, good-old fashioned beach-lounging.
You can experience the Ocean Rose Inn’s stunning beauty and seaside comfort from mid-May to late-October. Hurry up and check their availability today!.
