Great stay at beautiful quiet inn

5 on July 26, 2016

Cooney cottage was conveniently located to explore all of Newport. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Ms. Cooney's homemade muffins were a delicious start to fuel our fun filled days in Newport!


Ideal Accommodations

5 on July 12, 2016

Cooney Cottage is located in an ideal area with excellent access to some of the best sites in Newport. There is ample private parking behind the cottage. The location is within walking distance to the beach, Cliff Walk, Bellevue Avenue, the Tennis Hall of Fame, and the fantastic restaurants and shops on the wharf. It was so easy to leave the car and walk all over downtown Newport. The accommodations were beyond our expectations. The cottage is tastefully decorated and the room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We were able to bring our dog and Rachel provided a cot to sleep an additional person. We still had more than enough room. Rachel provided a lovely breakfast each morning with plenty of coffee and delicious homemade muffins. A different flavor of muffin everyday. Rachel was also able to provide excellent guidance for dog friendly activities and restaurants in the area. We utilized the dog friendly harbor cruise that Rachel recommended as well as a couple of restaurants. On top of everything else, the price of lodging was very, very reasonable. So much so that we will surely be back again.


Great location and accommodations

My wife and I and our dog stayed over the Memorial day weekend. We stayed for 3 nights and couldn't have been more comfortable. Rachel is very accommodating. The location was perfect. It's close to the cliff walk and Easton beach. It's also close enough to walk downtown and to Bellevue Ave. where the mansions are. We would definitely stay again.


Wonderful Location

Rachel was very accommodating and flexible with Our reservation. The rooms were clean and roomy, as well as brite and cheery. Our dog was welcomed into the home and enjoyed meeting her dog Daisy. Cliff walk was a very short distance from home and our dog loved walking there during our stay. Very convenient to town and mansions, would stay here again.


Christmas in Newport

We stayed at Cooney Cottage during our recent trip to Christmas in Newport. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and ocean walk. Enjoyed our stars very much.


All the comforts of home!

4.6 on August 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

Perfect place to stay for our Folk Fest weekend

5 on July 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.


Great location

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!

4.6 on July 01, 2015

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!
