Castle Hill Inn Winter

King of the Castle

The Road Trip:  Castle Hill Inn

Good for:  A cozy Eastern seaboard weekend to decompress in the loveliest of inns in historic Newport, Rhode Island.    

The scoop:  All the things that Relais & Chateaux dreams are made of, the Castle Hill Inn epitomizes the charming weekend getaway.  Lavish spa?  Check.  Gourmet restaurant?  You bet.  We especially love the idea of a winter road trip to curl up by the fire with a hot tea and spot of rum.  You can completely hideout for 2 days without leaving the property, or for the ambitious, venture out to snow shoe or check out the antique shops and small town living in Newport. 

The deal:  Castle Hill is getting in the holiday spirit for the Chinese New Year with a special menu from February 5-11th.  Their own Chef Andy Tauer who grew up in a family of Chinese restaurateurs, has crafted a 5 course Cantonese-inspired menu with wine pairing with dishes like traditional Chinese soup dumplings with minced pork belly and steamed rouget with scallion puree and lobster coral.
