Watch Hill was built in 1987 by Matt and Tim Weichel of Southampton as a replica 1920’s style beach house and intended to be a dream home for their father who chose its name. For a time it was owned by an American who operated off-track betting from the back office. In later years, filled with antiques, Watch Hill became a Victorian Grande Dame owned by Michelle and Lorin Myers. Now, Watch Hill has shed its Victorian ambiance and taken on the aura of the Hampton’s Beach House featured in the Jack Nicholson/Diane Keaton movie, Something’s Gotta Give. In order to become a working B&B, visited by more than 200 guests during its maiden season (Summer 2017), Carla Pavlov (CR Designs) took on the beach house design challenge.
Collaborating with many local craftsmen and artisans we tried to maintain the grandeur of Watch Hill and to prepare her for sharing with travellers from as near as down the road to as far away as the Black Forrest of Germany.
We hope you’ll visit soon to join us in this new chapter of Watch Hill’s history.
