We came for the boat show and though Newport was very busy and booked up, we were lucky enough to get a room at this lovely Inn! The grounds are very well cared for, and the Victoria room we had was just perfect. Private, but had an open space to the back with the French doors to a secret Koi pond and patio. VERY comfortable. Breakfast is awesome. Would definitely recommend.
We arrived at this B&B a tad early but that did not deter the owner, Susan, from warmly welcoming us! She was gracious, kind, smiling and very happy to have us stay! The room was beautiful, clean and the bed was perfect!! Lovely fresh, clean smelling towels! The only thing I might recommend is a two tier wicker container placed next to the bathroom sink to hold toiletry bags/toiletries. The location is PERFECT! Away from the main thoroughfare yet close in walking distance to everything! The breakfasts were outstanding! Susan was most eager to please me with all foods that could satisfy my gluten, dairy and corn free diet! She knew just what to use in cooking and what to substitute! It was lovely to have French Toast and an omelet without having to worry about problems later! She even went out of her way to make a delicious pot of tea for me with a tea she was most eager for me to try! We met some lovely people around Susan's beautifully decorated dining table! I cannot say enough about her hospitality! Our son and his new wife recommended this B&B and we would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone!
Never staying at Block Island, we didn't know what to expect. Having stayed at other BnBs, we had some idea of what to expect. Our room was nice and quiet -- in the carriage house. The owner was very welcoming and explained the property and its amenities. The wine/cheese/guac time was nice and the front porch was very welcoming. The bathroom in our room was a bit tiny, but it was fine for our short stay. If we came back, we'd choose one with four even walls - no dormers. The location is about a mile from town and definitely walkable without suitcases. Rich's Ride helped us out a few times with our bags or if it was late at night.
Our stay here was delightful. The Innkeepers could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They had WONDERFUL breakfasts and snacks. They gave us wonderful suggestions of where to go and what to see. The Samuel Durfee House was extremely comfortable and in a great location. You can walk to so much. Parking in Newport can be tough so being able to walk is important! Would stay here again! Cant say enough good things about it.
Victorian Ladies Inn is an exceptional Bed and Breakfast venue! Elegant, serene and extremely beautiful gardens create an ambiance that will set the precedent for your visit to Newport! The breakfast is outstanding and the staff are amiable and accommodating!
Must say the service and hospitality of the Inn keepers was excellent Also the the breakfasts were beyond expectation Never have I experienced anything like it before Homemade muffins fresh fruit daily and yogurt and granola And a hot entree to boot Examples during our stay included French toast ,pancakes ,eggs with sausage or bacon on the side Wow! Stayed in the carriage house liked the ability to Have a little more room as the rooms there have private decks We had a great time Thanks! We would love to come again
Everything about La Farge Perry House was wonderful; we have true appreciation for the lovely, immaculate suite, the comfortable beds, the breakfast and the housekeeper. (Yes, you, Morice!) It truly has a "homey" feel. We have traveled from NH for years and enjoy our quiet piece of Newport at the La Farge Perry.
We stayed at the Victoria Skylar for a long holiday weekend and had a wonderful time! Our hosts were very accommodating and very kind, and they made us a delicious breakfast every morning. The rooms were slightly small but certainly comfortable enough, and the house was very charmingly decorated. Everything had a luxurious feel despite a reasonable price. The one thing to note is that the location is a bit of a walk to downtown Newport (15 min). We were perfectly fine with this because the weather was great and the location was more quiet than downtown, but it is worth noting. Thanks for everything!
Had the most wonderful time at Victorian Ladies Inn. Cindy and Harry were most gracious. The rooms were beautiful, and the breakfasts delicious! Probably the most centrally located B&B in Newport for walkers like us. In a quiet area just a few blocks in one direction from the wharf & shops & restaurants, and 3 blocks in the other direction from the beginning of the Cliff Walk. Will definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful weekend staying at the Samuel Durfee House. It was our first trip to Newport and we can't wait to go back. We will definitely stay at the Samuel Durfee House as well as recommend it to friends. We stayed in the Ida Lewis room and had our own little balcony that we had coffee on each morning. It also helped bring a nice breeze into the room, which was much better than what we get in NYC! We were thrilled to have fresh air. Michael was incredibly helpful in terms of advising us on where to go and how to get there. Breakfast was delicious both days - we had amazing french toast and a delicious vegetable quiche. We were late coming in on Friday evening due to traffic, but Michael and Heather were very flexible and very kind. I would highly recommend staying here! Location is also great because it is off of a main street so it is quiet, but it's walking distance to everything.
What was great is you can walk to cliff walk and down town to shops. All the staff was very accommodating and the breakfast was wonderful included breads, juice, fresh fruit and coff and a main course that was excellent.
