We hate to boast....but we have "The Location" that can't be beat. Located in the heart of Newport's historic waterfront, just footsteps from all the finest restaurants and shops. Located just off Thames Street,yet tucked away just enough to offer a tanquil setting in the garden, by the pond. Views of Newport Harbor, and the diningrooms overlook St.Mary's Church, where JFK married in 1953. Our lovely Victorians from 1870 and 1880 will offer you all charm and hospitality of yesteryear. Beautifully appointed and decorated, with attention to detail. Yet all rooms offer privacy, newer baths, cable TV and air conditioning. A full breakfast and on site parking is included.

Wedding Guest Convienent location Room D

3.2 on November 02, 2014

Room D no other room like it. Perfect no frills stay for a St. Mary's/Newport yachting center wedding. Spacious bathroom to accommodate dressing with bonus view of harbor. It was quiet, comfortable and clean. Convienently located with parking so we could walk everywhere. I had never stayed in a B&B before, would definitely do it again. Overall positive experience. Had a great visit to Newport and a really fun wedding!

Just the right place !

The owner was absolutely wonderful! She was very accommodating with our requests. The room was spotless and the bed was comfortable. We also enjoyed the breakfast it was warm and delicious. Also the location is just prefect, right in the middle of it all, yet there is privacy at the Inn with a little garden! I would highly recommend this place to a friend or anyone looking for a nice place to stay!

Great Get a way. Well worth it

We showed up early with another couple that was not even checking in and they allowed us to park both cars and said go visit the area and come back when we want to check in. This B&B is close to everything, so you can walk all over easily and I have a bad ankle. No bar or dinner but not needed since everything is a house or two away. They do serve you a super breakfast. Don't miss out, check it out! Dave and Priscilla Y

Best location ever!

Friendly and Accommodating

4.8 on August 11, 2013

After making my reservation I discovered that I would need to ship my suitcase and Denise was so willing to receive my package and care for it until my arrival. Then my daughter and I wanted some photos of the two of us and she graciously took those. On our second morning, my daughter needed to leave by 7 am - an hour before breakfast was supposed to be served. Connie and Denise got up early and made sure she had the chance to eat a nourishing breakfast before reporting for Naval duty. Everyone was super friendly and the other guests were delightful - which I also believe is partially a reflection of the atmosphere created by the owner. Thanks for a terrific experience. Marsha

Great location and nice inn.

We LOVED the beautiful gardens and charming atmosphere in this B&B. The hosts were friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, the location is absolutely ideal, and the rooms were fabulous. If you're staying anywhere, stay here.

A Great Deal and a Central Location

4.4 on April 17, 2012

Really enjoyed our stay in Newport. They were extremely helpful with things to do and places to go and the breakfasts were great. Easy to find and walkable to the harbor and restaurants, as well as trolley stops. We also got a great deal in the off-season, so that made it even better. Great all around.

enjoyed our stay

4.2 on August 30, 2011

Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The inkeepers were knowledgeable about the area and provided several very good recommendations with regard to dining choices. Breakfast was fairly ordinary and maybe a bit below what my wife and I expected from a B&B, but it was suitable nonetheless.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The innkeepers were very helpful and always gave us good advice . It was our first time in the area and our first time staying at a B&B. We will definitely return!!
