Harvest Moon Paddle at Weekapaug Inn
There is something wistful and romantic about moonrise and there are few better places to see it than from the Inn, which looks east down the salt pond. Paddle from our dock to greet the rising moon from a remote stretch of beach, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and then paddle home across placid waters under the moon’s silvery light. Please note, tickets purchased for this event are non-refundable unless the event is canceled due to inclement weather. The inn reserves the right to cancel or postpone water events and outings, at its sole discretion, due to weather conditions and other hazards.

The Granite Theatre Presents the Haunting of Hill House
Cut off from the outside world by its remote location and shunned by all who know its forbidding and sinister reputation, Hill House has remained empty and silent except for the daily visits of its grumbling caretaker, Mrs. Dudley. Its isolation is broken by the arrival of Dr. Montague, an investigator of supernatural phenomena who has been granted a short lease by the present owner. His mission is to delve into the morbid history of the house and to come to grips with the occult forces that have made it uninhabitable for many years. He is joined by three others, all unacquainted, but all having their particular reasons for accepting Dr. Montague’s invitation to share his Hill House sojourn. Their visit begins with jovial informality, but their sensibilities are soon jolted by strange and eerie occurrences. As they struggle to disguise their mounting fears they are joined by Dr. Montague’s wife and a friend, who have come to Hill House for purposes of their own. They too are absorbed by the supernatural, but their approach is via direct communication with the departed spirits—a type of psychic research which is regarded fearfully by Dr. Montague and which, as subsequent events bear out, brings on a crisis in which the evil forces of Hill House are goaded to a new and, for one of those present, fatal fury. A chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.” Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess—powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived therein in the past. Come see this haunted play this October!

Maker's Mark Hobbit House Dining Experience at the Preserve
The two Maker’s Mark Hobbit Houses at the Preserve each offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience with an upscale grilled menu and fine bourbon pairings. The magical setting evokes storybook fantasy, inspired by the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, making a lunch or dinner you will never forget.
Nestled into hillside boulders, our two Hobbit House getaways are surrounded by lush landscapes with tree trunks incorporated into the architecture. No matter which Hobbit House you dine in, you’ll feel like you’ve entered Tolkien’s “Middle-earth” as a well-worn path leads you to an intricate round wooden door that swings open to reveal an intimate interior with stone floors and artfully stacked stone walls. The flicker of candlelight and charming decorative details complete this transporting experience.
Whether dining for lunch or dinner, each course is thoughtfully prepared using Le Creuset, the original enameled cast iron cookware that remains an iconic tabletop style statement. Gather around a custom-designed Maker’s Mark wood table—repurposed from former whisky barrels—for dinner and pairings, then unwind around the fire pit under the stars.
