Before the Hamptons, there was Watch Hill, a charming New England escape that attracted traveling city dwellers to this quaint town. Ocean House is a grand Victorian building with a facade that has retained its signature butter-yellow hue since its opening in 1868. A change of ownership in 2014 saw a complete renovation of the building, yet pieces from the original property remain, such as the phone booth, stone fireplace and reception desk.
