Newport, Rhode Island - The Lawn at Castle Hill Inn






There are few places more quintessential New England summer chic than Newport, Rhode Island. And the perfect place to take it all in on a sunny day is the rolling lawn overlooking the harbor and the Jamestown bridge at the Relais & Chateaux property Castle Hill Inn




Whether you are staying at the property or not, you can enjoy a lovely alfresco lunch at their informal bar and restaurant called The Lawn. Think warm summer breezes, fresh salty ocean air, frosty cold cocktails, and delectable favorites like lobster rolls, a variety of seafood and juicy burgers (topped with lobster if you want!).





You won't be at a loss for entertainment, some of the most stunning yachts and sail boats parade back and forth on their way in and out of the harbor. I would have gladly accepted a ride on this one:






For lunch we devoured native fish tacos with crispy tortillas, slaw and a side of corn on the cob:



As well as a marinated seafood salad with calamari, smoked mussels, baby shrimp and roasted peppers in a garlic-fennel vinaigrette:


After lunch you can take an afternoon nap on one of the large, white Adirondack chairs that dot the lawn. Really there is no reason to leave ...

  1. There's something immediately dignified about this venue - it is beautifully designed, tasteful, and understated. Went to these comfy NYC venues recently, just the right temperature, good food and great experience.

  2. Where do you and your grass live? Knowing your atmosphere will help you to figure out what grasses will develop and look the best for your area. You should coordinate this up to how much exertion, time, and cash do you need to spend on your lawn.https://howdoesyourgardenmow.com/cub-cadet-33-inch-walk-behind-mower/

    I used to come to Newport for writing transcription and translation of videos on the river bank. It is a beautiful place to concentrate.
