All the comforts of home!
su agosto 23, 2015
In a way I picked this place kind of last minute. I was looking for something in Newport that was dog-friendly, which we know is never easy, and I absolutely lucked out. Even with reasonable expectations (their website does a good job showing the rooms, etc.), it was beyond, so lovely with all the comforts of home.
I arrived later in the evening and was met by the owner, Rachel Cooney, and from that moment on I was never in need of a thing.
The Cottage itself it tucked in right on Memorial Drive literally steps from the famous cliff walk and a picturesque beach. It is also only a few minutes walk for you to be right in downtown Newport and everything it has to offer, which it pretty much everything. The rooms were exactly what I wanted in super clean and as comfortable as you can imagine. Rachel would meet me each morning downstairs and discuss my options for the day over a continental breakfast. She was incredibly knowledgeable and was always there when needed yet without once making me feel overwhelmed. In other worlds she has been doing this for some time, thus understands the balance between the responsibilities of a being a great host and the privacy of her guests.
I had a fantastic weekend and will certainly be coming back for another weekend with Rachel and her pugs. I highly recommend Cooney Cottage to anyone looking for a getaway weekend in Newport, especially all those other dog lovers!! Cheers

We had a great stay.
Perfect place to stay for our Folk Fest weekend
su luglio 28, 2015
We stayed in the Cherry Blossom room for the weekend of the Newport Folk Fest. I loved the location, very close to the Cliff Walk and mansions and good biking distance from Fort Adams. Thames St is about a mile, walkable or bikeable. We were able to get out on the Cliff Walk early (before the tourists!) for a beautiful morning run and get back for breakfast. The room was very spacious, with a nice sitting area. Everything was clean and well kept.
Rachel was very helpful and responsive, but gave the guests their space. It really felt like staying in your own home. Very comfortable and relaxed.

My girlfriend and I as well as another couple stayed in the Bermuda Room and The Cherry Blossom room. We also had our dogs with us. The location is perfect to walking to downtown shopping/restaurant area as well as the beach and the cliff walk. The cottage is very clean and the owner helped us with all our pet friendly restaurant questions as well as made some activity suggestions as well. 5 stars!!!
A great stay!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Rachel's B&B - the location is incredibly convenient (a 5-minute walk to the beach, a 5-minute drive to Thames Street), the room was spacious and clean, and overall a great value. You do have to share the bathroom with the other guest bedroom, but that downside is fairly reflected in the price and it was not an issue for us (only saw the other guests once in the driveway!). Did not have the breakfast as it was only served from 8-9 am, which wasn't particularly convenient for us but wasn't a big deal as there are a few great coffee shops in the area. Would recommend this to others looking for a simple, clean, quiet place to stay in Newport!
Wonderful Weekend Retreat
su giugno 23, 2015
My husband and I stayed for a quick winter getaway. It was our second trip to Cooney cottage. Newport is quiet in the winter and it was just what we needed. We awoke to lovely continental breakfast each morning. The Innkeeper Rachel would come to breakfast and discuss our days plans and offer suggestions on special events in the area. We enjoy chatting with her and find her suggestions to be helpful. Cooney Cottage is very tidy which made us feel comfortable. We would recommend Cooney Cottage to anyone especially those who live to travel with their dog. We have already planned a trip back for August! Can't wait to walk to the cliff walk and First Beach!! Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

A great bed breakfast for a weekend away in Newport. It's a 5-10 minute walk from all the restaurants and mansions. Rachel does an awesome job.
Wonderful Location Near Cliff Walk and Beach
su giugno 18, 2015
Cooney Cottage is in a wonderful location in Newport within walking distance to Cliff Walk and the Beach. The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. Although the rooms share a bathroom, the price is a good reflection of this. My husband and I enjoyed the quiet and calm atmosphere. We like our privacy. Rachel, the innkeeper, provided a quiet peaceful room and a nice continental breakfast. Thank you for the wonderful accommodations! We will be back!
Stones throw to the beach
su giugno 16, 2015
My husband,myself and our pooch stayed here for a long weekend. The room was airy and large. Nicely decorated with a beachy feel. We were able to walk to the beach and not have to pay for parking and could walk downtown to the restaurants. The house is perfectly placed. The inn keeper was sweet and left us to our vacation with out any interruptions. There was a great walk around the corner for our dog and the price to stay here is unreal for Newport. We will recommend to our friends and family and anyone who likes to travel with their dog. Thanks Cooney Cottage for a spectacular trip!
Memorial Day Weekend at Cooney Cottage
su maggio 28, 2015
When we arrived at the cottage the innkeeper was out. She left a key and a standard form letter. The letter was in bold print, underlined and highlighted with all her rules. It said if you wanted breakfast it was ONLY served between 8-9 and ONLY if you return the form. Not one time on that letter did she say Welcome or hope you enjoy your stay. When we returned in the late afternoon the inkeeper was home, we could see her moving around behind the glass french doors, she could definitely hear us moving about. The place is small. She didn't come out to meet us, to say hello or see if we needed anything. She totally ignored us. The bedroom was cute, twin beds as we requested. The sheets on one of the beds were badly stained. It looked like hot chocolate had been spilled and didn't wash out. There were no toiletries. No shampoo, conditioner, no water to drink unless you used the bathroom sink, no bath soap. I had to use the liquid had soap to shower. My towel was wadded up behind the door instead of being refreshed. The bathroom is shared but the first night there were no other guests. When we down for breakfast the first morning the innkeeper greeted us but left us alone to our continental breakfast. We had to knock on the french door for milk which was skim. The fruit had mold on it and the breakfast was just cold cereal, bagels and a small homemade quiche. The reason you go to a B&B is for hospitality, a unique experience and breakfast. This place offers none of those things. When we left the second morning she chased me down in the parking lot because apparently my credit card only held the room for one night. This was not clear. I waited for her to process the remaining balance. She was friendly enough but still never said Thank you for staying, hope you come again. Hope you enjoyed your stay. Nothing to that effect. We had to go out each evening to 7-11 to get water to drink. We had access to a small fridge on the lower level but it was empty save for what we added. Just overall not a B&B experience.
