Since Newport’s founding in 1639, water transport has been a principal method of travel to Newport, for both business and pleasure. As a guest of the Inn, now you too can travel into Newport aboard M/V Mistress, Castle Hill’s own motor launch. Hugging the eastern shoreline of Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor, Mistress will glide by Gilded Age mansions, the New York Yacht Club, and Newport’s town skyline during the voyage. The vessel departs from the Castle Hill Marina and lands at the Ann Street Pier, followed by a quick stop at Perrotti Park before returning to the Castle Hill Marina. Each ride is $15 per adult; children 12 and under ride free with an adult. A round trip on this route will take approximately 90 minutes, based on the following schedule:
