Best View of the Newport Harbor and Bridge. Grab a drink at the bar and head down to an Adirondack Chair and sink in the best view of Newport.

Enjoyed a romantic dinner at the Inn and pre-dinner drinks at the bar while watching the sun set. Magical night!

What a beautiful setting to have a drink and watch the sun go down! The Inn provides adirondack chairs, at no charge, and no purchase necessary.

Take a stroll up to the Castle Hill Lighthouse at sunset. The views are spectacular. It's a wonderful spot to sit and take it all in!

The Castle Hill lighthouse is a tiny structure you reach after a short walk from the lower level grassy parking lot. The Castle Hill property is very nice.
