“Hard to find but a gem”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

Walked down a path. Sign said only for guests of castle hill hotel. Beautiful, remote and hidden. Walked along the surrounding rocks. Be careful! Kids really enjoyed.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Could not find this lighthouse but the waiter drew me a map of trail to get
to this hidden gem just as the sun was setting. Fog horn going off so added to
the experience

“a must see rhode island lighthouse”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

This may be my favorite Rhode Island lighthouse. It is a cute little one situated on a rocky cliff above the ocean, which makes for some good pictures. It seems to belong to the Castle Hill Inn, as it is on their property and they have walking paths to get to it. I parked in their lot, but I don't think they appreciate people doing that. But there is a marina across from the inn that I heard has public parking. You can go right up to the lighthouse which is a short and easy walk. Or you can walk further down the path and then walk across and climb over a lot of rocks to get a nice view of it from the side. It wasn't a difficult hike, but i guess it could be for some.
