The Day - Sound & Country - - FRONT PAGE -

Sis­ter prop­erty Weekapaug Inn was built in 1899 and has of­fered the seren­ity of na­ture’s beauty for decades. Away from the bus­tle of town, the beau­ti­ful shore­line and Quono­chon­taug Pond pro­vide many op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­plo­ration. For those with more so­cial de­sires, Weekapaug Inn has a great lineup of ac­tiv­i­ties.

One new spe­cial event for 2016 is the Weekly Pig Roast & S’mores on Mon­day nights. From June 27 to Septem­ber 5, en­joy a fam­ily style three-course feast at the Res­tau­rant and Am­phithe­ater Lawn. 5:30 to 8 p.m. for din­ner, then yummy s’mores by the fire pit from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Cost, plus tax and gra­tu­ity, is $85 per adult; $40 for ages 4-12, with chil­dren 3 and younger ad­mit­ted free.

A tra­di­tion since 1938, the Thurs­day Night Clam Bake hap­pens on the lawn un­der the stars from mid-June through mid-Au­gust. There’s din­ner from 5:30 to 8 p.m., then yummy s’mores by the fire pit from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Cost, plus tax and gra­tu­ity, is $85 per adult and $40 for ages 4-12; with chil­dren 3 and younger ad­mit­ted free.

On Septem­ber 3, Quono­chon­taug Pond lights up with phos­pho­res­cent plank­ton called ctenophores. Join the res­i­dent nat­u­ral­ist on a boat pad­dle over the pond to watch the crea­tures glow when the wa­ter is dis­turbed. The pad­dle runs from 8 to 9:30 p.m.; cost is $20/ho­tel guest, $40/non-guest (plus tax).
