The Artful Lodger is a bright and airy Victorian built in 1850 located in the Mansion District, and centrally located within 5 minutes from downtown Newport's shopping and dining area. We guarantee you private off-street parking, private baths with all rooms and suites, and an exquisite gourmet breakfast in our conservatory overlooking the Newport Harbor. Our warmest welcome! When you stay with us, you will be neighboring "The Elms," a Newport mansion owned by the infamous robber baron, E. J. Berwind. The mansion is famous for its sunken gardens and lavish parties (even in present day). The secret coal tunnel designed by the coal magnate is steps away from our front door. It was used for discreetly transporting fuel for the first electric lights of the turn of the century elite's "summer cottages." Certain weekends may have a minimum 3night stay - call Inn with any questions-800-503-1850

Nice little Inn, with a great location - within walking distance of most Newport sights. The full, hearty breakfasts, with a lovely view are a great way to start the day. Off-street parking is an added bonus since we didn't use our car very much. Our host, Phil, and his staff were friendly, without being obtrusive, and offered good suggestions for dining and area attractions.

The Artful Lodger was a great find and we will definitely be back. Exactly what we were looking for, close but not right in the middle of everything. Clean, cozy and inviting. Breakfast was fantastic and what a view!

This was our first time staying at a b&b. We are normally five star hotel people. We were greeted by a very sweet younger girl who showed us our room. Met another nice lady who had some connection to the owners. Very personable and kind! The room we stayed in was very large. The bed was so comfortable. I was overly impressed at how clean every aspect of that place was. The bathroom was spotless, large, and accommodating. The only downfall was the mild water pressure in the shower. There are a million things to to within a few minutes walk from this location. We had a great time!!

This was my fire stay an a B&B and my stay was extremely pleasant, the staff was pleasant and helpful; the suite immaculate, the jacuzzi wonderful. The breakfast room had a magnificient view and the food was prepared well with detail to presentation. The Inn was located close to the mansions and a short walk took you to Thames St. and restaurants and boutique shopping.

We stayed only one night, mid-week, at the Artful lodger. We got a very reasonable rate through this website, and the room was well worth the money. It had a sunroom, a porch, and a fire in the guest room. It was a good location, close to restaurants on Thayer street and the forty steps. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, with a beautiful view over the sea (I am told that sunset is spectacular from the breakfast room but Iwemissed it). Phil was a lovely and considerate host. Highly recommended.

The owner had provided lots of information re: local restaurants that made choices prior to arrival easy. He also sent emails and called providing details that made my arrival stress free. Private parking was a big plus and a super big plus was the great breakfast he prepared every morning.
