Historic & Grand Hotels in New England

New England has a deep and wonderfully varied history from the Pilgrims to the present. Much of that history is alive and on display at comfortable historic inns and Grand Hotels -- a few that have been welcoming travelers since before America was a country. If these walls could talk, they would tell stories of rich ship owners, farmers, or outdoor explorers who built hotels in the mountains and along the shores.

Island inn once the site of a 19th century fort and an artists colony

If you’re a history buff, or you just love resorts that incorporate their storied past into their present, stay at the Inn at Diamond Cove.

It is still known as a tranquil getaway. Modern amenities include a popular restaurant, fitness room, tennis courts, heated pool and cabana bar, hot tub, and, of course, meticulous service.

A history rich in warm hospitality and welcoming atmosphere still honored at this lovely inn

Travelers on stagecoaches between Albany and Boston found welcome respite and genial hospitality at the Red Lion Inn when it opened as a tavern in 1773. That year, citizens gathered to protest Britain’s Acts of Intolerance and to propose a boycott of British goods. It was an exciting beginning to the inn’s proud history, which includes visits by Presidents Cleveland, McKinley, Coolidge and both Roosevelts as well as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Thornton Wilder and Bob Dylan. The stately white inn with its renowned front porch (perfect for rocking and beverage-sipping) honors its heritage throughout the property, from its individually decorated antique-filled rooms to the historical posters in the Widow Bingham Tavern to the colonial pewter used in the elegant Main Dining Room.

Romantic past, famously designed surroundings, make this elegant inn a must-visit

Built in 1927 by renowned lawyer Frank Hogan as a gift to his only daughter, Dorothy, upon her marriage, the elegant 11-room inn sits on 200 acres of manicured grounds and stone walls. Those scenic grounds, walking trails and colorful gardens were designed by the Olmsted Brothers, son of the man who designed New York’s Central Park. Today, they provide the serene, and romantic, atmosphere that draws guests back regularly to the inn and its exquisite accommodations with four-poster feather beds and cast-iron gas stove fireplaces.

Storied past continues at this class Cape Cod-style inn on the Rhode Island shore

When the Weekapaug Inn says it has a storied past, that’s not an exaggeration. The five-star resort’s saga begins in 1899, when its doors were first opened to guests who wanted a summer retreat on the shore. Rebuilt in 1939 following a hurricane, its location between the ocean and a salt pond made it a highly desirable location. And it still is: The inn’s $20 million renovation in 2012 preserved its past and added luxurious modern conveniences like a pool with a view, a state-of-the-art fitness center, superb farm-to-table dining and an on-site naturalist to lead tours and discussions. Some things don’t change, though: You can still open your windows in your comfortable room or suite to those sea breezes.

Historic seaside allure, contemporary comforts continue to attract guests to charming inn

The strong ties between the Watch Hill Inn and its seaside village go back almost two centuries. The luxury resort, which sits in the heart of Watch Hill village, was first owned and operated in 1845 by the son of the village’s first lighthouse-keeper. An electrical trolley system brought guests in over the years. Celebrities followed, from Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Clark Gable to Andrew Mellon and Henry Ford. The inn, which survived the devastating 1938 hurricane, has been meticulously renovated in 2006 and 2013. Exceptional service, as in the golden age of hospitality, is still a point of pride for the staff. And the inn’s welcoming suites and coastal beauty still serve as beacons to travelers seeking seaside retreats.
