Great value, excellent service

5 on August 30, 2013

It's beautiful, but I value their service even more. Richard and Donna provide attentive, detailed service, helping us with our bags, making sure everything was to our satisfaction, and they had helpful info on where to eat and shop, where the best bargains were, where the best food is. Thanks to them, we had 4 days of bliss in Newport, starting of course with a delicious breakfast. Yes, it's Continental, but that term doesn't do it justice. They serve a variety of juices, pastries, muffins and breads, along with good coffee and tea if you wish, in a lively atmosphere. Morning banter with guests and hosts provided a great start to the day, along with tips on where to visit. At the end of the day, our queen bed was sublimely comfortable and gave us a good night's sleep, preparing us for the next day. Thanks Richard and Donna! We will stay here again.

Wonderful Anniversary Getaway

5 on July 19, 2013

This was just the place we wanted for our 20th anniversary getaway. The innkeepers Richard and Donna were so helpful and kind. The home was beautifully kept, cozy, and very welcoming. We truly felt like we were invited into their treasured home. The breakfast was delicious, and they were such nice people. Before arriving and during our stay they guided us on the best places to dine, sites to see, and things to do. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning.
