La Farge Perry House

24 Kay Street , Newport, RI 2840 USA (Show map)

About

Located at the top of Newport's posh Hill, La Farge Perry House has a perfect location, within walking distance to all of the major attractions, yet far enough away from the active nightspots to provide a restful atmosphere for those that wish to relax. A full breakfast is served in a beautiful dining room where you are surrounded by scenes of Newport on a mural original to the house painted in 1900. With handmade linens and 300 thread count sheets, the rooms have extraordinary comfort; many with small sitting areas and most having either a single or double jacuzzi bath tubs. The local knowledge of Jennifer, the innkeeper, will help you with answers to any questions about the inn, Newport "hot spots" - for dining, dancing and live music.

Beautiful House, Lovely Stay

4.8 on August 26, 2015

The La Farge Perry house is a beautiful old house situated not too far from the main docks and harbor of Newport (about a 10-15 minute walk). We stayed in one of the master bedrooms, which was very large and very comfortable (actually had two different bedrooms on either side of the bathroom, and it easily sleeps four. Though the one bed definitely larger than the other). Bed, sheets, tub, towels, everything comfortable. The staff was extraordinary and very well-informed helping us figure out what we should do, and augment the plans we already had for our time in Newport. Great breakfast! We enjoyed the Lemon blueberry pancakes and bacon, and meeting the other guests in the dining room at breakfast. Lovely and highly recommended!!


Awesome

Marise... Hostess with the mostest. Rooms were clean and large. Jacuzzi tub was great. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. We were first time b&bers. Now we don't want to stay anywhere but b&bs. Would I stay here again? YES!


Wonderful stay with a wonderful innkeeper.

Spent three magical days in Newport staying at the beautiful, in every way, La Farge Perry House. They simply don't come any better than Marise the innkeeper. Her care and attention to detail is superb, breakfasts beautiful and her friendship so welcoming. Thank you for everything Marise.

The master suite was unbelievable. It was an extemely friendly and warm environment. They advertise as a home away from home and it really was! I would absolutely stay here again.


Delightful Stay in Newport

We found this place doing a Google search for a B&B in Newport, RI and were so pleased with the "find". The house was beautiful with many amenities and our room was lovely. The innkeeper was efficient and accommodating as well as someone with a great sense of humor. If we had to find one fault, it would be the breakfasts. While they were certainly well prepared and filling, our experience with B&Bs has included a very special breakfast. These were good (e.g., omelette one day and pancakes the next). These were ordinary. While this would not prevent us from returning to this inn if we were in Newport in the future or from recommending it to others, but this was the one disappointment.
