An Anniversary Getaway.

0 comments

This summer has flown by… and not ONCE did I go to the beach. NOT ONCE!!!! That fact depresses me to no end and so I took it upon myself to book a night for my anniversary with Andrew (8 YEARS, OMG) at a place I have always wanted to go- Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. A luxurious inn by the beach is exactly what we need (two nights would be better, but, well…. we have a house to furnish). I seriously cannot wait- their website makes me giddy. It’s New England seaside perfection and just looking at the pictures makes me more relaxed.  Now let’s just pray for sunny skies!

You can choose stay in the inn on the hill, by the beach or the harbor.

How LOVELY are the beach cottage interiors??

A gorgeously nautical inn suite complete with clawfoot tub by the window, of course.

We’re staying in a harbor cottage at right.  The beach cottages, left, also make me weak in the knees.

This is what sold me, right here. “The Lawn“, where you can snack, drink and watch the boats in the harbor!

This will be me and Andrew. Even the boat shoes, which I somehow managed to get him to not only buy, but WEAR too!

Why yes, I would like a cocktail on the beach, thank you, sir.

Look at that location!

Another amazing thing about Castle Hill, that beach below left is called Grace Kelly Beach, because it was her favorite when she would stay here often. Um, yes.

I also hear the food is spectacular, so we’ve made a reservation to dine there as well.  I hope to also do the Cliff Walk and tour a couple mansions, which I have not done since I was little!  Now that I’m Downton Abbey obsessed, I think I’ll enjoy them even more!
