If Winslow Homer were to paint a view of Castle Hill Inn, surely he would focus on the slope of green lawn stretching from the turreted house down to the water’s edge. Whitewashed Adirondack chairs gather in comfortable conversational groupings angled towards the sea, and flags snap overhead on the nautical mast-flagpole. The chairs’ wide plank arms are just perfect for balancing a sundowner or iced tea. So if the weather’s clear, arrive early: Seats are taken on a first come, first served basis and aren’t often surrendered until long after the sun has set.
