As one of the fledgling country's 13 colonies, Rhode Island is an American original. The Ocean State brims with towns like Bristol, a historic community that retains its seafaring roots. For a timeless trip to quintessential New England, set sail for this Escape to William's Grant Inn.
The inn was originally built in 1808 by ship captain William Bradford III. After 185 years as a private residence, the property was restored and converted into a cozy bed and breakfast. Here, you and your first mate will enjoy a one- ($107) or two-night ($199) stay and receive daily breakfast for two and one $30 dining credit to your choice of five local restaurants. Or, opt for a three-night stay for two ($301) and receive daily breakfast for two and two $30 dining credits to your choice of five local restaurants.
Make yourself at home in one of the five individually decorated guest rooms, each complete with a queen bed, private bath, and Oriental carpets. The Blithewald Room features antique Victorian décor and original hand-hewn plank floors, while the Sturbridge Room, named for the historic Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, features appointments inspired by early New England life.
Once you're all settled in, you can enjoy an old-fashioned breakfast, complete with piping hot muffins or scones straight from the oven and a bowl of fresh fruit. Add dishes like blueberry pancakes or a spinach-and-mushroom omelet to complete the meal.
For a real time machine experience, guests can visit Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Old Sturbridge Village is a historically accurate reproduction of an early 19th-century Massachusetts town, completely populated by "history interpreters" who bring the scene to life. The village offers visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in the daily activities of historic New England. Walk the country roads, watch a blacksmith craft horseshoes, or talk with one of the Village's inhabitants.
When dinnertime is on the horizon, you'll have a sea of dining options at your disposal. Use your $30 credits at your choice of five local eateries: The Casual Inn Restaurant, Roberto's Ristorante, Le Central, Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill, or Lobster Pot.
The past is closer than you think with this Escape to William's Grant Inn in Bristol, Rhode Island.
