Rough Point
#6 of 43 Sights & Landmarks in Newport
Situated on a majestic edge of RI coastline, each room takes advantage of the ocean view and you can watch the surf from three sides of the glass-walled sun room (photos are allowed in this room and one other).
The views of the ocean from the back grounds are amazing, and although the tours are guided we were free to wander the grounds and gardens on our own.
