Originally built in 1868, the grand Victorian hotel, Ocean House, with its columned porches, multi-paned windows and architectural trimmings, has served as an icon for Watch Hill for more than a century. Significant site preparation and demolition were necessary before Dimeo could begin replicating this historic hotel with added condominiums and underground parking.
The hotel is located directly on the Atlantic Ocean perched on a bluff above an unparalleled white sand beach. The 142,000 sq ft structure includes an additional 30,000 sq ft of porches and roof terraces. The new building will be a re-creation of the historic hotel portion dating back to 1905 and will incorporate 24 luxury residences with 48 hotel rooms. Open year round, the hotel will be host to a world class spa, indoor lap pool, three seasonal dining venues, state-of-the-art exercise venue and all hotel amenities.
