Wedding Weekend

4.4 on September 14, 2015

Roughly 30 of us stayed at Eden Manor for a Wedding at Narragansett. Beautiful property and house. Bernadette, LLoyd and family were very friendly. Had a small issue with the room and it was fixed beyond our expectations. Couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Would highly recommend Eden Manor! Thank you Bernadette and Lloyd!

The backyard is huge and a wonderful hangout place for guests. The breakfast in the morning was very good as well.


Lovely getaway

This was a last minute spot to run away from home to. The hosts are special, welcoming people. We met some interesting people over the breakfast table. The inn is located very near to some great bike trails and even better, not far from an incredible homemade ice cream shop. We had a relaxing time and would definitely recommend Eden Manor to others. Oh, yes. The rocking chairs on the porch were special.


Highly recommend!

This was our second visit to Eden Manor. It's a 26-room Victorian estate, that is clearly lovingly care for. My husband, daughter and I visited last summer and were so charmed by the enormous house and all its wonderful character, as well as the lovely inn keepers and delicious breakfast, that we returned this summer. This time we brought along my mother as well as my siblings and their families. Everyone was charmed by Eden Manor and very happy with their stay. I personally love the high ceilings, charming, unique decor in each room (and every part of the house) as well as the restful sleep I get at Eden Manor. It is all very welcoming and relaxing. I highly recommend and we look forward to returning.


Lovely Experience

5 on January 03, 2015

My mother, boyfriend, and I spent a weekend here in August. The hosts were wonderful and kind. They even offered us some of the historical materials they had gathered in regards to the home. Quite interesting! We had to switch rooms partway through our reservation because of the home being full, but they made sure to make this as easy as possible. Our rooms were beautiful and clean. There was a fan to use if the rooms were too warm, and it was quite pleasant. The grounds were immaculate, and it was nice to wander through the flowers and gardens. I brought my bicycle and spent my early mornings biking around the town. Breakfast was fabulous, and even my "picky" boyfriend found something he liked. Overall, this was a great experience. By far the best bed and breakfast I have ever been to. I can't wait to visit again!

This is a lovely old mansion and grounds, and the owners are lovely people. It is always a pleasure to stay.


Loved this place!

5 on October 06, 2014

I stayed here recently for my wedding - my party had basically the whole house, and it was a dream! Basically like having your own house, but we don't actually live there! We did our own DIY flowers outside in the yard the day before the wedding, we had people over for the rehearsal the night before and we even had a fire the night of the wedding after we all came back! Bernadette and Lloyd were so lovely, their daughter Emma was so sweet and hung out with us, and they were so accommodating. The day of the wedding I had the hair and makeup style people do it in my parents room, and then we had the dining room for lunch and it was just so chill and relaxing. We even did yoga in the front yard on the day of the wedding! I loved everything about this charming old house. Thank you guys for making my wedding such a dream!!


Great place for a large group

4.0 on October 01, 2014

We stayed at Eden Manor along with a rather large wedding party. Everything was awesome. The Manor is perfectly laid out for a group - large dining room, expansive lawns, fire pit with many chairs for after wedding respite. Loved the back yard eggs and home made treats for breakfast. The owners and their daughter were the perfect hosts. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the area.


Great Stay

The building was great, the location is great, the family that runs this B&B is also great. The Eden Manor definitely exceeded my expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a lovely place to stay in South Rhode Island. The Eden Manor is exquisite on the inside and the grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. Bernadette and her family and helpers are all so gracious and incredible. I would definitely stay there on future visits.
