Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Unbelievable views of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay are afforded by this Goat Island resort. Their outdoor event spaces take full advantage of the locale, with expansive seaside lawns, a romantic lighthouse as a ceremony backdrop and fire pits for a New England clam bake.
  • There are sweeping vistas, even when you move the celebration indoors. The elegant Rose Island Ballroom spotlights beautiful panoramas of the bay, harbor and Newport Bridge (plus stargazing from the outdoor deck)… or, get even closer to the sea at the Waterside Pavilion.
  • When the wedding is over, you can let the vacation begin. After all, you’re in fabulous Newport, which means you have sailing, golf, vineyards and historic mansions to explore. Not to mention relaxing at the spa or the hotel’s saltwater pool, all while earning complimentary honeymoon nights.
