The Artful Lodger is a bright and airy Victorian built in 1850 located in the Mansion District, and centrally located within 5 minutes from downtown Newport's shopping and dining area. We guarantee you private off-street parking, private baths with all rooms and suites, and an exquisite gourmet breakfast in our conservatory overlooking the Newport Harbor. Our warmest welcome! When you stay with us, you will be neighboring "The Elms," a Newport mansion owned by the infamous robber baron, E. J. Berwind. The mansion is famous for its sunken gardens and lavish parties (even in present day). The secret coal tunnel designed by the coal magnate is steps away from our front door. It was used for discreetly transporting fuel for the first electric lights of the turn of the century elite's "summer cottages."

We arrived late and left somewhat early, wished we could have stayed longer. Managers were very nice and food was excellent. Location was terrific for "mansion viewing"

We had never stayed in a bed & breakfast before, so we were not sure what to expect... but Randy and Lisa exceeded our expectations in every way, particularly with the breakfasts! (Cinnamon bun pancakes, breakfast burritos, french toast... and the most amazing breakfast potatoes you will ever eat!) We visited for the weekend of the Newport Folk Festival, which we very much enjoyed. We loved staying in such close proximity to the festival, because we were able to enjoy the city of Newport as well! Lisa provided excellent recommendations - the Cliff Walk, Easton's Beach (and other beaches in Middletown), a schooner ride, and a host of restaurants. We only wish that we were able to stay longer! We absolutely loved Newport, and enjoyed our lovely and comfortable stay at the Artful Lodger Inn. We will most definitely be back!

Loved our quick visit to Newport and the Artful Lodger Inn. Our room was pleasant, quiet, and like my husband said "the best breakfast ever." Thank you Randy and Lisa

We stayed the last weekend in June in Newport for 2 nights (attending a polo match nearby with friends). I did not want to drop $300/night, and got a nice mid-level room on the ground floor for $200/night + taxes at Artful Lodger. Not fancy, but nice enough with a king bed. The highlight of this B&B is the top floor breakfast room with spectacular views (we also hung there for sunset one evening with sweeping views of the port and town below). The breakfast was OUTSTANDING both days, prepared by Randy, one of the Inn Keepers. Lisa, his wife, manages the B&B, and was amazingly helpful with ideas and anything frankly we needed (we needed space in the fridge/freezer as we brought picnic food for the polo match :), and they gave us a late check out (knowing the room was not to be occupied that evening anyway) which allowed us to take our bike ride and shower afterwards, and still enjoy the rest of the day. I would highly recommend this place for people that don't want to go broke in high season with exorbitantly priced hotels/B&Bs, and who love a great breakfast in the morning with fabulous views.

Artful Lodger is a lovely bed and breakfast in a great location. It has easy access to historic mansions and the shops and restaurants on Thames St. Our room was well decorated as was the rest of the house and was very clean. The breakfast room had a gorgeous view and the breakfasts were outstanding.

Had a beautiful short trip to Newport, and a lot of it thanks to the great housing we had at the Artful Lodger. The room was clean and exactly as pictured, and breakfast was beyond our expectations. Thanks to the friendly hosts!

Innkeepers Lisa and Randy are exceptional in their desire to please Artful Lodger guests and guarantee them a pampered and relaxing stay. Their Breakfasts are the "Talk of the Town" and their experiences as Captain and 1st Mate of a yacht in Newport Harbor give their conversation at breakfast with guests a unique twist.
