Rediscover the Magic of Matunuck With a Stay at the Admiral Dewey Inn

Travel local this spring at a cozy and welcoming seaside destination


For a spring beach getaway you don’t have to travel far to experience, there’s never been a better time to rediscover the Admiral Dewey Inn, an affordable local destination overflowing with charm and amenities. Surrounded by both farmland and sea, the yellow late-Victorian house exudes comfort and invites guests to explore all that the South County village of Matunuck has to offer.

When not lounging on the inn’s expansive wrap-around porch and soaking in the history and views, Emil, who manges the Inn recommends using Admiral Dewey as a homebase for adventuring local. “Spend the day strolling town beach or rent a surfboard from the Matunuck Surf Shop and catch a wave. Then grab a pizza for lunch from Matunuck Pizza Pie Company followed by a beverage from The Pub, or listen to live music at the Ocean Mist bar – all within walking distance of the inn!” 

The circa 1898 property functions as a year-round bed-and-breakfast with 12 bedrooms and one loft suite in a laidback and welcoming atmosphere encouraging guests to slow down and enjoy coastal Rhode Island.

Putting guest experience first, staff offer fully customizable booking options, too. “The intimate sense of community at the inn allows for our inn keepers to really customize each visitor’s experience, whether they’re seeking a romantic stay around Valentine’s Day, a friends’ trip for New Year’s Eve, or a surf vacation for hurricane swell,” says Emily. “We even offer full buy-outs of the inn.” 

“All-inclusive” is all the rage, and with Admiral Dewey Inn, you’re not only getting a cozy stay but also have all of the neighboring businesses on Matunuck Beach Road at your fingertips. Along with Halloween and New Year’s packages, booking a stay at this coastal inn also gets you tickets to holiday parties at Ocean Mist. Not to mention, there’s no better way of keeping the winter blues at bay than waking up to a sunrise over the sea at this Matunuck gem.
