Ocean House Weekend and Sunset Charter


Ranked among the best resorts in the world by Forbes Magazine, the Ocean House in an iconic New England seaside resort. Perched high on the bluffs of Watch Hill, it’s the only AAA five diamond hotel in the state.

If you’re celebrating a very special occasion, or you’ve got someone you REALLY want to impress, this is the place to do it. There are several fine dining options, which rival the accommodations for quality. But be warned – it’s got a diamond pricetag, too. Even an overnight here will set you back into the four figures – and there are sometimes multi-day minimums. 

If you want to up the ante, you might want to book a Sunset Charter on the Dandy, a classically designed Andreyale 33, inspired by the American commuter boats of the 1930s. Sunsets around Watch Hill never disappoint, nor will the elegant Dandy, which offers satin mahogany elegance and space for up to 6 guests. Charters depart from Maxon Dock in Watch Hill, which is a three-minute walk from Ocean House. $500 (plus 18% gratuity) for a two-hour sunset charter, which includes a bottle of champagne and cheese plate for two.
