Ocean House Management (OHM) announced it will assist Wykeham Rise Hotel Partners in developing Wykeham Rise and subsequently manage the property upon opening. The 27-acre luxury inn broke ground on April 1st, with an anticipated opening date in summer 2019 in Washington, Connecticut, 80 miles north of New York City.
"We are honored to expand our collection of hotels in New England's most desirable locations with the addition of Wykeham Rise in Washington, Connecticut," said Daniel A. Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director, Ocean House Management, LLC. "Wykeham Rise is the first addition to our collection away from the New England shoreline, and perfectly complements our other boutique hotels."
"I am thrilled that Wykeham Rise will become the newest OHMCollection hotel of exceptional character and spirit," said Ms. Klauer. "Under Daniel Hostettler and his team, Wykeham Rise is poised to develop in exciting ways, while staying true to my original vision of an enduring community asset."
Soon to be one of Connecticut's newest luxury escapes, Wykeham Rise is set amidst 4,500 acres of nature preserves and 36 miles of hiking trails, offering 54 rooms, signature suites, cottages, and an 11,000-square-foot boutique suite-style spa. Guests can look forward to the gracious service, creative farm-to-fork cuisine, and a range of activities. The property will also feature an outdoor pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a wine and culinary education center, and a dynamic roster of activities under the direction of a full-time Naturalist. Blending indoor and outdoor living, the inn will offer multiple indoor and outdoor meeting and entertainment venues, a kitchen garden and orchard, swimming pool, skating pond, sledding field, and acres of hiking trails.
The project will feature one- and two-story privately owned residences managed by OHM, allowing owners to place their units into the inn's rental program. Each will include multiple master suites and luxuriously appointed indoor and outdoor spaces, custom designed to meet the owner's specifications. Owners will enjoy access to the full range of amenities afforded to inn guests.
