Owners breathe new life into The Inn at Rye Place
New boutique hotel undergoes renovations just in time for spring
Two local businessmen and long-time friends Howie Lazerowich and Joe Roy recently bought and transformed The Inn at Rye Place, formerly the Rosewood Inn, into an affordable, boutique hotel just three miles from the Rye beaches.
During the pandemic, the new owners upgraded the entire property, including renovating the lobby and guest rooms with new furniture and appliances; improving the landscaping and backyard area with fire pits, seating areas and outdoor games; adding technology such as keyless room entry; and much more. The Inn now offers a restaurant and bar on the property, as well as concierge service and free parking (which is a major plus for guests looking to go to the beach).
The hotel is located in Rye Place Mall, which includes boutique shops, restaurants, a fitness center and a salon. Picturesque walking and biking trails also surround the property, giving guests the opportunity to plan weddings, family vacations, beach trips or business travel — much like Portsmouth and Hampton offer, but with less congestion and noise.
The Inn at Rye Place officially reopens for the season on April 29.
