History runs deep at the Weekapaug Inn, situated on Quonochontaug Pond in Rhode Island. The property dates back to 1899, when Frederick and Phebe Buffum opened the small inn for the beach-going community. And while the original building burned, the couple rebuilt the charming inn, perched on a peninsula between two salt ponds, that is beloved by guests to this day.
