Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With sparkling views of the Atlantic, this historic resort and hotel close to downtown Newport is an elegant and sophisticated retreat set on 10 acres of rolling lawns.
  • A picturesque ceremony site overlooking Narragansett Bay is particularly romantic at sunset. For an extravagant reception venue, the Grand Ballroom offers a gleaming wood floor, tasteful chandeliers, and an ocean panorama through its wraparound windows.
  • The exquisitely presented cuisine includes delectable menu options such as citrus-poached salmon with an orange fennel salad, flame-roasted marinated sliced steak with garlic-sautéed broccolini, and Dijon herb lamb loin with a Vermont chèvre risotto.
