  • We walked the path through the exclusive neighborhood that Taylor Swift’s home is in to the Watch Hill Lighthouse. It is privately owned and not open to the public. It is mostly a large green space in...  more »
  • Wonderful lighthouse lookout. Cars not allowed. Have to walk or bike down about 1/2 mile. Open around the year.  more »

  • Still favorite place in the world. No frills, best beaches. Perfect place for families!!
  • Mainly, I really enjoyed being able to park so close to the beach, and have all my stuff close by in case I needed to run back. No stress when it comes to waking up early and driving to get a parking spot
  • This hotel ruined my vacation. We rented two apartments, C & D for a family of six. The facilities are exceptionally old, the door didn't shut correctly or lock, window locks were broken/non-functioning, the cleaning staff did not clean or tidy our room, the ceilings were stained and run with plumbing pipes, the AC unit was ancient, the overall appearance of the hotel is poorly maintained 1970's decor, very small and cramped, old orange plaid pull out couch was uncomfortable and close to breaking, bathroom amazingly small with stained flooring, no counter space, no shelves, no hook on door for vanity bag, view is of an old asphalt parking lot, dirty old carpeting, small uncomfortable wicker dining room table/chairs, internet access only available in the lobby. When we parked outside our room to pack our suitcases into our car, we were told by management not to park there. The septic tank was under us and our car might fall in. There was no marking to not park there. I can't think of a positive thing about it except it kept us out of the elements. And we paid over fifteen hundred dollars for two apartments for two nights. You can walk to some nice places but I would advise to stay somewhere else and drive to those nice places.
  • Two words... Run down. Watch hill court is in such a nice location. Its a shame it isnt kept up. The unit we stayed in smelled musty, there was mold in the shower, and there was a towel wedged in the bedroom window acting as a window seal. Overall our stay was ok. The beach was nice. Hopefully they upgrade the place soon.
