Newport Restaurant Group’s Castle Hill Inn has been named by Forbes as the “Most Romantic Retreat in New England“.

A small excerpt from the article written by Ann Abel, Contributor for Forbes.

“The place is simply romantic and dreamy, animated by history but not weighted down with it. And its location, on a promontory a few miles west of the town center, is as beguiling as it gets. It’s hard not to fall a little bit in love. Locals and visitors come simply to spend afternoons on the inn’s lawn—or Lawn, as it’s an official venue, with food and beverages served to well-dressed, well-behaved guests in their Adirondack chairs—and watch the sailboats drift by on Narragansett Bay, or the sun set the sky aflame as it dips below the horizon.”
