U.S. News Review

You'll feel like you stepped back in time once you've stayed at the Ocean House's classic New England retreat. This historical resort has been lovingly restored to its original design, down to window placements and interior wall hues. But recent guests don't visit for nostalgia's sake. Rather, they come for the courteous and attentive service staff and the secluded feel of the resort's grounds. They also come for the luxurious accommodations, equipped with high-end amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations, wooden furnishings and Frette linens. Recent guests also return year after year to indulge in rejuvenating spa treatments at OH! Spa and treat their taste buds to delectable cuisine and signature cocktails at Ocean House's five dining venues. You'll find the Ocean House located in Watch Hill on the south coast of Rhode Island, about an hour's drive south of Newport.
