This week The 95.9 Company Break takes a look at The Weekapaug Inn with General Manager & Innkeeper Simon Piers Dewar.

The Inn’s small size – 27 bedrooms plus four two-bedroom Signature Suites – and modern Yankee décor, create a tranquil and private setting for getaways with friends and family. Generous public spaces offer flexible venues for high-level conferences and magical weddings. The Inn is situated on its own peninsula on the west end of Quonochontaug Pond, within the summer colony of Weekapaug.  Guests at the Inn enjoy long views over the Pond and across the Atlantic Ocean to Block Island.
