New in 2017
A Fresh Take on Classic Coastal
The New Year ushers in a renewed sense of energy and gusto for the endeavors that lay ahead at Ocean House. 2017 brings exciting new developments aimed at creating a familiar, yet refreshed guest experience as we enter our seventh year.
Beginning in mid-February, all 49 guestrooms will undergo a head-to-toe renovation, revealing a refreshed aesthetic while maintaining the coastal New England charm for which the resort, and the area, is known. The months long, multi-million-dollar refresh will take place over a six-week shutdown, allowing Ocean House Design Group and designer Peter Neimitz unimpeded access as the reformation unfolds.
Some of our loyal guests will recognize the rich ceramic tile entryways, custom wool carpets, updated technology and renewed color palettes from rooms 301 and 215 which served as “model rooms” for guest feedback prior to the total renovation.
“We selected a mix of warm, natural woods, white painted woods, and linen and chenille fabrics, to create an eclectic mix of colors, finishes and materials that all come together to create visual interest,” explains Niemitz.
Fabrics will be a mix of new toile, linens, and chenille, by Scalamandré and Lee Jofa, which complement each other to create an element of warmth and richness. Another thoughtful update, the in-room technology will see a significant upgrade. Brand new state-of-the-art televisions, nightstands with hidden phone and device charging connectivity, and Bluetooth-enabled sound systems will add convenience and modernity to the otherwise classic scheme. Custom in-room bar trimmings – think chic, leather-clad ice buckets and trays, and a reimagined selection of beverages – are also included in the revitalization.
With a projected reveal slated for the start of the busy spring season, we look forward to welcoming you as our guest!
Yours in hospitality,
President & Managing Director
