Why We Like This Place

  • The Water Salon exudes elegance. Featuring retractable sliding glass walls, crystal chandeliers, white sheer drapes, two fireplaces and color-changing uplights, this spacious room is perfect for a glamorous reception.
  • The Island House is another beautiful reception option, with views of the ocean and Newport Bridge. An adjacent rose garden, old-fashioned light posts, two illuminated fountains and a white shell path add to the romantic ambiance.
  • The Ocean Lawn is ideal for saying “I do.” Your guests will gather around the ceremony circle to witness your vows—time it right for a fabulous sunset backdrop. Lawn games are a fun entertainment during cocktail hour, while later in the evening a blazing fire in the fire pit will add a cozy glow.
