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."

Our stay at the Artful Lodger was outstanding. The breakfasts were unique and exceptional in taste, and the innkeepers were wonderful people. We took full use of the hot tub and gas fireplace in our room.

First of all, the location was perfect-walking distance to Bellevue Ave and downtown. The innkeepers were also very friendly and welcoming. They offered us a free room upgrade, and suggested many activities we could do on our stay. The food was incredible-we were offered many choices, and they were all great. I would highly recommend this Inn!! Whenever I visit Newport in the future, I will definitely be staying at the Artful Lodger. It was a wonderful experience!
