Tucked away on Castle Hill's beautiful sprawling grounds is a small lighthouse that can only be found via a small footpath in the woods close to the lower level grass parking lot. Only a short walk through the trees, but the views of the Atlantic Ocean with the Castle Hill Lighthouse in the foreground are magnificent. On a clear night... More

This is a wonderful little destination and one of the quieter lighthouses I have ever visited. A great location for awesome views of the ocean.

This is one of the most charming little lighthouses ever! We parked at the end of the lot at the country club and walked down a path to access the house up close. I recommend sturdy, comfortable shoes -- not sandals and definitely not flip-flops. You can't go inside, but you can get excellent views up close. I found the... More

It is very small, but charming lighthouse. We drove down there just for this lighthouse! It was a foggy day, giving the mystery feel to the lighthouse. After parking your car by the very end of the Castle Hill Inn, you can walk folllowing walking trails to either side of the lighthouse to get a different view.

We first saw this lighthouse while on the Gansett Cruise and decided to have a picnic lunch there. Free parking and a nice path to walk to it. We set purr blanket out on the rocks for a picnic lunch & walked on the rocks with the kids. We found shells and more. I think I have found my new... More

When you visit Newport, be sure to break away for an afternoon, outdoor cocktail on The Lawn at the Castle Hill Inn. Views of Jamestown and Newport Bay are exceptional from here. Take a short walk out to the lighthouse and climb the rocks for great photos and pure enjoyment of the scenic view.

This lighthouse is a short easy walk from the Castle Hill Inn parking lot but not much to see. It's small and not too impressive.
