Wonderful weekend getaway

Had a great time staying at Gateway. Sandy was very helpful and it was nice to have a place to stay that was close to both activities in Newport and to visit with friends in the area. Would definitely stay there again.

Best Anniversary Getaway!

The ambiance and hospitality were great! The owner was so kind and welcoming and the room was lovely. Breakfast was delicious, and definitely worth getting up at 9 am for! Our time there was wonderful and we'll be going back!

Signature Dish

The Germans that settled in Cincinnati came up with this dish. It has lots of grains, spices, and pork and it is packaged like a roll of sausage. We slice it, fry it and serve it with eggs. A real favorite!
