Fodor's Expert Review Point Pleasant Inn

333 Poppasquash Rd., Bristol, Rhode Island, 02809, USA

A regal East Bay estate set on a peninsula near Colt State Park, this rambling 1940 mansion anchors a gloriously situated 33-acre compound of well-tended lawns and manicured gardens. The seven rooms and suites are decorated with antiques and the works of local artists. Some accommodations have immense sitting rooms, and many have expansive views of Narragansett Bay. Bathrooms have deep tubs and stand-alone showers. The full breakfast buffet includes Scotch eggs and blueberry pancakes, along with other treats; cocktail hour features an open bar and hors d'oeuvres. A well-trained, multilingual staff tends to your every need, and the parklike grounds include tennis and bocce courts and a pool with a slate lanai.
