Creepy Mansion on Water
« on: June 28, 2020, 07:23:21 AM »


I know someone looking for a place that fits the description below.  What's killing me is I know of paddled by some place that fits this description but can't place it.  Ideas?  (I wouldn't consider the most well known mansions in Newport, Marble House, Breakers, etc., creepy).

 I am looking for an old, preferably Gothic, mansion on the coast - like, right on the water. Preferably on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Should be dated looking rather than modern-looking. Think late 1800s in appearance. The creepier, the better.

   Horsehead Marbella at the mouth of Mackerel Cove in Jamestown, R.I. Look it up on the internet.

an excellent choice!

Clingstone, between Ft. Weatherill and Jamestown Harbor is another option, perhaps not as high ranking on the grandeur scale
