Ocean House

A Victorian coastal refuge
Once a summer home for America’s wealthy in the early 1900s, Ocean House now welcomes guests year-round to a beautifully renovated Victorian hotel perched atop the marshes in picturesque Watch Hill.

Walking into the hotel will conjure up images found in history books: This is the place where parasols, top hats and trunk luggage once graced the lawns and where championship croquet and moonlight walks on the beach took place daily.

Today’s Ocean House still pulls from its past, with a touch of contemporary style.
