Redeveloped Ocean House Exceeds Expectations
The Ocean House is no ordinary new-build resort. Led by New York financier Charles Royce, a group of local Watch Hill, RI full- and part-time residents invested their passion and about $140 million in constructing the 72-unit Victorian-styled hotel on the site of a resort built on the spot in 1868 (that closed in 2003). Royce and his group initially wanted to renovate the original Ocean House, but it wasn’t possible. The next best approach was a recreation that duplicates the look, feel and even sight lines of the 19th-century resort.
