Historic Hotel to Reopen with Guest Rooms and Residences

Located in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, the Ocean House, which originally opened in 1868, closed in 2003 after falling into severe disrepair. The aging structure’s significant safety-code concerns would have made it excruciating to renovate, so its current owner carefully disassembled the old hotel—salvaging many of the historic interiors—and started building a replica of the Victorian-style estate from the ground up. The 13-acre property, which has its own 1,000-foot beach, will reopen in June with a new hotel featuring 49 guest rooms and 23 residences. Residences start at about $1.5 million.
