We stayed two nights at this beautiful property and were sad to leave. The location is breathtaking and our suite had an 180 degree stunning view over the white beach and ocean. The staff is personal, friendly and very attentive. We took advantage of their award winning spa and enjoyed a couple of treatments. Dinner is fabulous and again the... More

When booking ocean house I wondered if the experience would live up to the somewhat high price. The answer is absolutely. From the champagne at check in to the boudoir pillow w my initial on the pillow case to the tangy salt water taffy on check out, the experience was wonderful. The grounds and beach are impeccably maintained. We had... More

If you want to feel like a one percenter, royalty, or just the most important person on earth, this is definitely the place. The staff is incredible. The service is beyond outstanding and the...

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Ocean House. This was a last minute trip, booked the evening before, for our 15 year wedding anniversary. We wanted to go somewhere close enough that we could drive, so I began a search of "luxury resorts" in MA, RI and Connecticut. When Ocean House popped up... More

These reviews are ridiculous and obviously written by those with an agenda. This is unquestionably one of the most beautiful hotels in one of the most gorgeous settings imaginable. It is an amazing property with every amenity imaginable. We were treated like royalty and were simply blown away by its class and elegance.

We enjoy going to the beach. My wife wanted a beach vacation and wanted to escape the southern heat. Our American Express travel agent recommended Ocean House. The hotel is stunning and Watch Hill is a small community that you can just walk around. Excellent beach walking with long stretches to yourself. Ocean House has a professional croquet instructor.

My family and I took our kids to this resort. It's a little classy for us, but We were surprised when it turned out to be amazing. We stayed in the spa suite right off from the pool. Best experience ever. They have a privet crochet court, which has amazing lessons. We will definitely be coming back soon!
