Explore Castle Hill Inn = Get-a-way to Newport RI now or in fall .. Trust me.


This place just plain & simple is impeccable for a breathtaking, refreshing get-a-way.


From the approach, forty acres for you to explore --- stay in one of the opulent suites or rooms of the Inn or a cottage by the beach or a room in  the Harbor House --- it’s all really #goodstuff.


Organic dinning with nothing short of spectacular views and a wine cellar where in the 1990’s (first time I was there) as Caymus was becoming a cult wine and priced moderately then as a reward to those who were cool enough to know about it = they had it on the list.

I fell in love with the wine, the food, the rooms, the view and the impeccable service of a Ritz-Carlton (no affiliation though).


One night after dinner the fog was so so thick and the sound of crashing waves were like thunder – you couldn’t see in front of you really – and my girl, my wife, was kinda startled and not as cool with it all as me as I was feeling (kinda high on everything) and it drew her into my arms. #love


The graceful Castle Hill Lighthouse seems almost a natural extension of our rocky seascape. It was built in 1890 by celebrated American architect H.H. Richardson, after Agassiz deeded the land from his property to the U.S. Government for $1.00. The granite tower stands thirty-four feet tall and has in the past featured a 1,300-pound fog bell. In addition to serving as a beacon for ships navigating Narragansett Bay, the lighthouse has also acted as the starting and finish line for many of Newport’s famous yacht races, affording guests unparalleled views of the action from our rolling Lawn. Curious explorers can easily reach the coastal icon by footpaths on our grounds.

Glamor: "Grace Kelly Beach"

In the great hurricane of 1938, the waters of Castle Hill beach and cove became one, famously cutting the peninsula off from the mainland. An intimate coastal beauty, the arc of white sandy beach surrounded by calm waters has called generations of families and guests to its shore for annual summer retreats. Today, Castle Hill is Newport’s only luxury inn boasting private beach accommodations. The majestic coastline offers quintessential New England rock formations and magical sunsets, making it the perfect locale for splashing in the surf or to relax in peaceful contemplation.
100% Organic = Farm to Table #BuyFreshBuyLocal
Our forty acres are lush with natural wildlife, but Castle Hill is also a haven for farming our own vegetables. Down by the Marina, red Rambo radish, bright light swiss chard, and spicy micro greens are only a few of the ingredients grown in our raised garden beds. Behind the Chalet, the air is rich with fragrance from lemon basil, wild marjoram, and orange thyme at our herb and garlic garden. Our culinary team regularly incorporates and builds dishes around these on-site offerings.

…But they aren’t the only ones who adore the greens: rabbits regularly attempt to plunder the beds. We've built fences to protect the crop, but resourceful baby bunnies still squeeze through the holes. They spend their first few weeks fattening up, until they’re so plump they can’t get back out of the beds. This means that often times in spring, our chefs add freeing the adorable trespassers to their to-do list.

The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.
