Fabulous View!
Feb 2020
Stayed in one of the beach houses while visiting Newport and was impressed with the Castle Hill area. Plan to arrive for a drink or tea at Castle Hill Inn and then walk to the lighthouse! Beautiful view across the bay and especially striking at sunset. A short walk along the path with parking at that Inn either in parking lot or beside the greenhouse. A great place to visit even if not staying at the Inn.

Gorgeous Landmark

If you're at Castle Hill Inn and having a drink on their iconic lawn, be sure to walk to the Castle Hill Lighthouse. Gorgeous views and lovely lighthouse. Great for pictures.

My favorite stop in Newport
Oct 2019
I love making a stop at this lighthouse when in Newport. Especially at sunset. There is a walking path through a wooded area to get there, so just be sure to leave before it is dark so you can find your way out and back to your car. But the view is great.

Great view, trail located in between beach houses and the Inn. It’s on the Inns property, however, they were very nice about us accessing it. Park on the lot by the greenhouse, not the Inn lot. Short walk to lighthouse. Worth the visit .

Nice hidden gem
Sep 2019 • Couples
This lighthouse is not easy to find. It’s on the property of a ritzy hotel and there is parking at the gatehouse and little marina. The valet parking attendant told us it was fine to park there, but there are signs stating not to do so.

We followed the trail along the road and then turned onto a dirt path. It was about a 15 minute walk to the lighthouse. You can go down to the lighthouse via stairs but there’s not much to see by doing so. The view is lovely and picturesque.

Allow 30-45 minutes.

Incredible Sunset view of lighthouse from the far lawn
Sep 2019 • Couples
We stumbled on the Castle Hill sunset experience thanks to a local. Everyone at the Inn was super friendly even though we were not Inn guests. It was labor day weekend and the lawn was buzzing, so after securing an adult beverage we walked in front on the valet parking area and were delighted to find a cliff overlooking the lighthouse being bathed in sunset tones. It’s a “do not miss” gorgeous view.

Hard to find but worth it
Aug 2019
If you are a lighthouse fanatic like me, you will love this little gem. It is hidden away on the rocks off the beaten bath. Google how to find it. and take the short (less than 5 min) walk out to find it.

One of our favorite spots to take pictures
May 2019 • Couples
We have been walking this path for years to take pictures of the lighthouse, have a picnic and to enjoy watching the boats go by. There are often people fishing down on the rocks further down to watch as well.
Our last visit we were met with a no trespassing sign stating this area was for Castle Hill Inn guests only. Not sure how much they enforce this, but what a bummer.

For those new to this spot, you park across the street and then go up a wooded path that opens up to the lighthouse & the water. There used to be a picnic table, but that is gone now too.

There was a wedding set up for the day too, very beautiful back drop for a wedding ceremony for sure!

Short walk, one of a kind
Jun 2019 • Family
Beautiful lighthouse, east coast rocky shore line. Trail is just before the inn (which is at top of hill). Trail is on left side, park beside the garden and cross the street to trail in the trees. Path may be muddy if it recently rained. Free attraction, absolutely beautiful. You can scale the rocks close to water, please be careful! My boys loved it!
