Castle Hill Lighthouse
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
Here in Newport and along its famed Ocean Drive, visitors will find a coast thatís lined with splendid mansions and impressive gardens. One of these grand homes on the western tip of Aquidneck Island was once home to Harvard marine biologist Alexander Agassiz. Today, this charming landmark is part of the Castle Hill Inn Resort. One of the most splendid resorts in Newport, Castle Hill Inn continually receives top awards for its food, wines and accommodations. Castle Hill Inn offers up a taste of fine 19th century seacoast living. Here on the bay, guests can hear the steady moan of the nearby lighthouse fog signal, the cries of seagulls and the steady crash of ocean waves. It doesnít get much better than this.
