This was my 3rd B & B in Newport and by far the best. The place was very charming, clean and inviting. The location was perfect, closer to the beach and cliff walk but still close to the main strip that you could easily walk there. The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious. If you are going to stay at a B&B in Newport, this is the one to stay at.
We stayed in the Master's Suite with our kids. It was great. It was less expensive than 2 rooms at a budget hotel, and it was opulent! Great value for a family with kids. The house is lovely and Newport is great. A bit touristy in the centre but the Cliff Walk and Mansions were fascinating. Had a great lunch at The Chanler, overlooking the water.
The best part is the location. While reading about what to do in Newport, I learned there is a ferry from Jamestown to Newport. I checked the map and couldn't believe that the ferry is about 1 block away from the B&B! It was perfect - and fun- to take the ferry to Newport. Rusty has discount tickets available. Jamestown is a great little town with good restaurants within walking distance. There are lots of magazines to read, daily newspapers, tea available in the evenings, fresh fruit each morning, large rooms, pretty and very clean bathrooms, nice linens. Very comfortable and relaxing.
We had a nice, relaxing stay. We stayed there for seven nights, and its location within walking distance of Thames Street, the visitor's center, and the wharves enabled us to enjoy Newport in all its splendor. Susan was quite helpful. Good value for the money, especially since it's so conveniently located.
The cottage was perfect for me and three friends. We Had the place to ourselves and all the privacy we wanted. Breakfast was always good. Our hostess Rachel was super helpful with advice, suggestions and directions. It's a great place to stay if you like the beach, which is only two blocks away. It is also only a short walk to the town center shops and restaurants. We all had a blast and would happily go back if we had the chance.
I have to say that one of the best decisions I made throughout the wedding planning process, was to have the bride and bridesmaids stay at Villa 120. As everyone was travelling for this wedding, I wanted someplace that would be our stand in "home" for the weekend. Villa 120 was that and more. The large, luxurious bedrooms, complete with amenities, easily accommodated our bridal party of six, along with their significant others. Villa 120 provided a much needed haven after the hustle and bustle of all our various events. Having an inviting and comfortable living room where we were able to sit, relax, and talk and get caught up with dear friends before everything started, was priceless. The décor, along with the architectural beauty of the house, is impeccable and makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos! Being a family of self-proclaimed "foodies", we found Corinna's breakfasts superb. It was a delight to work with Corinna; she is professional, yet caring and calming, and very knowledgeable in an area where we were at best novices. I would highly recommend staying a Villa 120 if you are having a wedding, or just visiting, in the Newport area. Wedding: 06/21/2014
We were visiting my brother and sister in law in Rhode Island, they didn't have a guest room available and we were lucky enough to stay at Gilberts, Jeanne and Don were delightful, the breakfast was wonderful, we can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay there. It was like a home away from home.... looking forward to staying there again!!!
The Island Home Inn is a special place that illuminates the ambience of Block Island. Dave is a special host who makes you feel part of his family and you feel like you are returning home when you go back to the B&B. Enjoy the summer, Coach Tony.
This was my first visit to Block Island and I was terribly anxious about the B&B. As soon as I saw the room all of my fears were gone. The room was so quaint and lovely and it had outstanding views of the gorgeous sunset! Breakfast was delicious. Dave was sweet and helpful. I don't even think I would conisder staying somewhere else.
Perfect location - beautiful, large rooms - kind and helpful owners - accommodating - lots to do and see - a bit pricey compared with what we're accustomed to, but the area must command and support that. Would we come back for another stay? Definitely! Only next time we'll stay longer!
An absolutely wonderful inn with great atmosphere and wonderful service. Harry and his crew really make you feel welcome. We stayed two nights; quickly wished we had arranged to spend three, but we'll be back.
Villa One Twenty is a true gem in every way possible. The grounds are beautiful, the property itself is immaculate in and out and very well appointed. A very nice departure from the doile laiden typical Victorian B&B. Corinna could not be more gracious, informative and welcoming. A pleasant surprise was how close of a walk it is to Newport. A nice leisurely walk through quiet well kept neighborhood leds you to the Cliff Walk. My wife and I will definitely be returning to this unique property.
When entering the b&b we were met by Maurise, the manager, who was friendly, welcoming, and informative with maps and suggestions. She makes you feel at home immediately. Our room was quite nice with its own bathroom. Breakfast was delicious as well. A great choice when staying in Newport.
We loved our night in this unique tradional lodgings close to the waterfront. It's run by a woman and daughter who have invested love and creativity into their venture. On sunny mornings, you can eat breakfast out on a small deck on the street. And you can park for free in a small lot next to the hotel.
This was a great place to stay. We attended a wedding in Wakefield and brought our two small children with us. The home has a lot of history, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and eating on the outside patio looking over the garden was so nice! Highly recommend this beautiful B&B looking for an alternative to any of the surrounding hotels, much more character and lovely serene setting.
Delightful home atmosphere! This little gem is tucked into a quiet spot just minutes from the metro area of Providence, RI and Boston, MA. If we are going that way, we will definitely stay again.
We had a great stay at the Victorian Ladies over 4th of July. The rooms were very nice and location is great. Right near the entrance to the Cliff walk. The parking was tight and we had to find a street spot, but found one easily just a block away. I am gluten free and they were very accommodating with my allergy. I would definitely recommend this B&B.
We had a good stay. The location is great, clean room, comfy bed. Breakfast has been better at other B&Bs I have stayed at, but it was fine. My main issue was the lack of Wi-Fi. They said they had Wi-Fi and provided a network name upon check-in, but that network name never appeared on our devices. It was very frustrating. I called and left a msg. about it, thinking perhaps they had changed the name or could provide assistance of some kind, but my call was never returned. Again, frustrating. Certainly not the place to stay if it's important that you stay connected.
We had such a great stay! The location was more than convenient, including a lot for our car so we didn't have to worry about on street parking. The rooms were just perfect, with more than enough room for 2 people. I'm addition to our great night's stay, the French toast breakfast the next morning exceeded all my expectations! I would choose this B&B over any chain or inn next time I'm in Newport!
Our stay at Adele Turner was wonderful. It was my husband first try at a B&B and it could not have been a better experience to convince him that B&B are so much more enjoyable to stay at then cold impersonal hotels. The hosts were warm and welcoming.
Our stay at the Almondy was wonderful but just be prepared to join the danceclub (One Pelham) until about 1am. Not a big deal for us as we were up late but could spoil your restful slumber if you are an early sleeper.
