A tour of The Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI by Liz Joy of Shorely Chic…
Over the weekend Brian and I drove up to Watch Hill, RI to hit the beach and visit the little town we fell in love with during a weekend trip we took last summer. The whole community of Watch Hill is just perfection, gorgeous New England beaches, an adorable Main Street with the cutest beach boutiques, ice cream shops, restaurants, and some of the most gorgeous homes I have ever seen. The Ocean House is definitely the gem of Watch Hill having first opened its doors to guests in 1868!
There is something so special about walking into a place you know has been luxurious for so many years, it’s fascinating to imagine
the people and styles that have walked up and down the hallways and relaxed on the vast porches.Brian and I were fortunate to choose
a day that the Ocean House had set aside to open up to the public and show off the renovation that has brought it back to life since
closing in 2003.
I snapped photos at all of the amazing details my eyes saw:
the view from the beach
view from the hotel
how gorgeous, when I pick up the paintbrush again, I may want to paint this…
lthough the Ocean House is a hotel, apparently you can purchase residences to own which is such a nice feature
of course there is croquet
the view from the main dining area
Shorely Chic heaven
guests were given a tour of the rooms on the first floor
the rooms walk out onto this…
