Trip Back in History

5 on April 16, 2014

The Samual Durfee House was a wonderful experience! The decor was authentic 1803 and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience in this Newport RI B&B. The hosts were charming and the breakfast exquisite. We would highly recommend this B&B for a memorable trip to Newport.

Excellent B&B experience in Newport RI

We do not normally stay in B&B accommodation when we travel but chose a couple on our latest trip which is to do a New England fall trip and NY visit at the end. Must say we were very pleased with our stay at Samuel Durfee House thanks to the efforts of Michael and Heather who are welcoming and customer focused which stands their establishment at the top of the B&B experience. The location is also excellent in central Newport town position. Can highly recommend this B&B.

Great weekend at Samuel Durfee House

My husband and I recently spent the weekend in Newport, staying at the Samuel Durfee House. Our room (Perry) was simple and cozy, and very clean. Heather was such a lovely host, and even baked gluten free cookies one day because I have a gluten allergy. Breakfasts were delicious too. The house is in a great location right by all the restaurants and shops, but on a quieter street. Highly recommend staying here for a relaxing weekend.

Very delightful!!

We stayed second half of Labor Day weekend through to Wed. Absolutely one of the very best B&B's we've stayed in. We were happy that despite the crowd on the weekend, it was peaceful in the inn. Very close to many attractions, shopping & restaurants that are within walking distance. The owners have maintained the historical ambiance of the house with modern eminities. Breakfast was wonderful & a treat to start the day. Heather was very helpful with "things to do & see" . Unfortunately, Michael was out of commission with a broken ankle, so we did not get to meet him. We will return for sure to use our restaurant gift certificate & try to take a sailing trip which was rained out.

Wonderful B&B - recommended

Our 2nd stay in as many yrs. We felt at home once again. recommend to anyone thinking of a stay in Newport RI. Heather and Michael are warm caring people who have created a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast is terrific and the suggestions - from site seeing to restaurants - is perfect. We will be back again.
