Fodor's Review

Built as a summer house in 1874 for Alexander Agassiz, a scientist and explorer, this luxurious and romantic getaway on a 40-acre peninsula has its own private beach and trails to the Castle Hill Lighthouse. Accommodations include tastefully appointed rooms in the main house that vary in style, and beachfront cottages with decks facing the Newport Pell Bridge, which afford greater privacy. Adirondack chairs on the lawn beckon you to relax and watch the passing boats. The service is exceptional, and the room rate includes a gourmet breakfast each morning, as well as afternoon tea. The excellent restaurant presents an elaborate Sunday brunch with live jazz music. The property includes a clambake pit, fired up weekly so guests can enjoy a traditional New England dining experience. The inn operates a pop-up spa in collaboration with Farmaesthetics, a Rhode Island company that offers organic beauty products sourced from American farms; spa services include facials, therapeutic and acupressure massage, and pre- and post-treatment saltwater soaks.
