We have stayed at The Ivy Lodge a number of times. It's very convenient to the mansions and cliff walk..the Tennis Hall of Fame...just everything. The breakfasts are superb and the innkeepers are very helpful and friendly. We love to sit out on the porch with our morning coffee when we are there. Check it out...you won't be disappointed.

A perfect location, thrown back in time yet updated with comfort and convenience, and very pleasant place to stay. I would enjoy taking in all the elegance at a more leasurely pace next time, experiencing all that is offered throughout this property. Darlene is a gem as well...

Our 2nd time staying at the Ivy Lodge. Beautiful, large, well-appointed room (Queen Ann Room) with a king size bed and fireplace. Perfect quiet location steps away from the cliff walk, yet close enough to walk to the action on Thames Street. Delicious full breakfast each morning, someone knows their way around a kitchen!! Thank you Darlene for all the recommendations and for making our stay in Newport the best yet! Ted and Krysti

I surprised my wife with a weekend stay at the Ivy Lodge. It was a superior experience. The room was beautiful, the lodge itself was breath-taking and it was walking distance to the Walk and we could see many of the mansions along the way.

My wife and I stayed at the Ivy Lodge during the second half of our honeymoon. We had a great romantic time. Our room featured a gas fireplace, four-poster canopy bed and the house’s turret. The Ivy Lodge is a good walk or short cab ride to shopping and dining. It is comfortably located in the mansion district not far from Bellevue Avenue. Daryl and Darlene McKenzie are knowledgeable about the area and are easy to talk to. They are extremely accommodating and provide a satisfying breakfast each morning. Very fun experience and well worth the stay--cozy accommodations.

This is a lovely and very comfortable place and the Innkeepers, Darlene and Daryl McKenzie, couldn't be more obliging. We were able to park in their lot way ahead of check-in time, a great convenience as we wanted to walk around the neighborhood and along the Cliff Walk. We only had a one night visit but loved the architecturally facinating house, and the food was great! This is a superb location, within a walk to the mansions and Eaton's Beach, and not far from a number of restaurants and shops. After we had checked out, they told us we were welcome to come back later for lemonade. We will definitely come back for another visit, when we can have a longer stay.

Daryl and Darlene were very helpful with recommendations for our first trip to Newport. They welcomed us and helped us get great dinner reservations at their favorite restaurants, with great seats!

My husband and I have stayed at the Ivy Lodge many times since our first visit in 2004. It is by far, the most welcoming B&B I have ever stayed in. The owners are most friendly and eager to answer any questions and be helpful. When I arrive, I feel as though I am coming (to my other) home!!! The breakfast is wonderful, the rooms are spotless and the common areas feel as though they are your home. The rooms are beyond beautiful and the interior decoration of the Inn is impeccable. While family suites are available, many rooms are perfect for romance. :-) Diane Lucas

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and on top of that my fiancee and I were spending a weekend together after having gotten engaged earlier in the week and Ivy Lodge was the perfect place to spend our weekend in Newport. Even prior to arriving in Newport I spoke with Daryl and Darlene and they helped me with reservations and planning events to make sure we could eat where we wanted to eat and get in on the things we wanted to do for the weekend. Upon arriving to the beautiful property we were initially pleased that we were able to walk to the Newport Mansions which we were planning to tour. Darlene met us at the front door and it was like being welcomed into a family member's home. The architecture of Ivy Lodge is exquisite! We reserved the Turret Room, which if it is available and you want to make your stay even more romantic I highly recommend booking this room. We felt pampered every day we spent at Ivy Lodge. Daryl and Darlene make a homemade excellent breakfast each morning (we had pineapple pancakes and eggs benedict with a Grand Mariner hollandaise sauce, YUM!). The inn is very clean and beautifully kept. Also we learned about an important part of staying at a bed and breakfast ...... the other guests. Everyone that stayed was very nice and we actually spend our time touring the Mansions with another couple. The breakfast conversation was delightful. My fiancee and I have already booked our honeymoon stay with Ivy Lodge. If you are considering Newport for a week or weekend getaway consider staying with Daryl and Darlene at Ivy Lodge. You will not be disappointed!
