Ocean House | Watch Hill, Rhode Island
Originally opened in 1868, the original historic Ocean House closed a decade ago, then was reconstructed several years ago. The architect stayed true to the hotel’s original design and replicated  the exterior and interior with painstaking accuracy. The Penthouse Suite features three bedrooms, two dining areas and a private outdoor deck with Jacuzzi offering views of the Atlantic Ocean.
