Overall great location. Very clean, beautiful room. Helpful staff with maps and recommendations. Only disappointing part was breakfast - seemed a little light. French toast was two regular pieces of white bread with a couple links of breakfast sausage. Felt a little rushed to check out.
Our stay was fantastic! Our room was exactly as pictured, no surprises except how beautiful it truly was! My only regret, and it was not their fault, but totally mine, I did not pay attention to the time for breakfast and scheduled a ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard too early for us to be able to stay and enjoy the breakfast. Lesson learned, don't plan too leave too early!
We had a great time this past weekend at the Victorian Ladies Inn! The breakfast was more delicious than most of the meals we had the whole weekend, the staff was welcoming and attentive, and the price was the best value you can get in Newport.
I have stayed here twice now and love the cozy rooms and great location! Convenient off street parking, easy access to beaches, cliff walkaline and downtown. Definitely ecoomend and will stay here again next time I'm in town!
First visit to Newport, and we were warmly welcomed by Heather. The room was spacious and had thoughtful amenities, including a fridge, nice toiletries, fluffy robes, and a homemade hot breakfast. Within walking distance to the wharf and a short drive to area parks and the mansions. We would definitely stay here again!
Loved the location of the Artful Lodger....stones throw from many of the mansions. We were able to easily walk to the cliff walk and almost all dining options. Our room was at the front of the house and although a bit of street noise during the day, our sleep was not disturbed at night. The bed was extremely comfortable and the two breakfast we were served were tasty and satisfying ( open faced egg BLTS and pancakes and sausage).
Charming home,wonderful hosts,cozy beds and a quiet environment even though there were at least 10 other guests. We were in Rhode Island for a University event in early October 2016 and we will definitely visit again.
Charming B & B in Kingston, Rhode Island. The hosts, Lloyd and Bernadette, are a wonderful couple and are so helpful. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. Recommend this B & B.
We’ve been staying with the Edens at least once a year for the past 16 years. Lloyd and Bernadette and their family are absolutely wonderful people. They always make you feel welcome and comfortable. They seem to know if you like to socialize a bit, or are a more private person who prefers peace and solitude. There’s plenty of room for both in this amazing old Victorian and surrounding property. The rooms are comfortably eclectic, each one possessing its own individual charm. Breakfast is always nourishing and delicious. There are many things to do close by (stroll and shop in quaint Wakefield, visit mansions in Newport, take the ferry to Block Island, beaches and more beaches, to name a few). The Edens are well-acquainted with all the area has to offer, and are always happy to make suggestions. We will continue to stay at Eden Manor as often as we can. - Jim and Kathy
The staff was great and the food was awesome. It is a great location. You can walk just about everywhere. The exterior needs some fresh paint and the hot tub has seen better days, but the view of the harbor was excellent.
We stay here over a weekend in September, when a friend of mine was getting married. Because of the boat show, All of the downtown hotels are booked up in the very expensive. We found this quaint local inn A true Newport experience. The lovely accommodations and delicious breakfast made us feel like we got a different taste of this timeless town. It was walking distance from the downtown area, about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace. We enjoyed taking over most of the time to get around and avoid parking.
We had a great stay at the Victoria Skylar! It was just a girls weekend trip to Newport for the first time. Our room was very clean, the breakfast was delicious and Derrek was so nice. I would definitely recommend. It's also in a great location, not too far from the tourist things to do.
Great location just a few minutes from the main drag or the mansions. The rooms are old as you would expect, the breakfast is at the top of the stairs with a great view over Newport harbour , which are quite steep, didn't bother us but may be a little more difficult for the elderly. breakfast was good, however I asked for eggs and bacon rather than Phills planned breakfast. He was a good host. We enjoyed ouselves preferring to stay somewhere that isn't too clinicle, like a chain hotel.
My wife and I spent a week there and what a fabulous week it was. The house is located right smack in the middle of everything. All the main attractions are within walking distance. The museums, seaport, boutique shops and restaurants are only minutes away. There is a great little pizza place right down the block in case you are dying for a quick slice and a coke. On the rare occasion that you might use your car, make sure you take the 10 mile ride down Ocean Avenue where you can get a beautiful view of the ocean hitting the rocks....just fabulous. Michael and Heather are very warm and welcoming and they make an excellent breakfast. Two thumbs wayyyyyy up!!!
We had a great stay! I love that this cottage was dog friendly and didn't just say that... Rachael had a list of dog friendly restaurants and attractions when we arrived. She also had a small bag of treats for him. She met me at the door when we arrived and we didn't see much of her beyond that point. The room and bathrooms were spotless and access to the house was simple. Everything in town was within walking distance. Breakfast was continental, perfectly simple. We will be staying here again.
New England has spectacular accommodations with architecture from the Gilded Age. Vacationers enjoy such hotel alternatives as oceanfront inns, houses, and lodges open to vistas of the blue waters of Newport Bay and Rhode Island Sound. Guests are pampered with marble bathrooms, flat screen televisions, and antique décor. They set the stage for touring a plethora of attractions including mansions, lighthouses, and natural wonders.
The Preservation Society of Newport County has the responsibility to maintain the most palatial mansions in the country. They date back to the 1800s with original artwork and furnishings in place. Each one is located along the southern shoreline of Newport. Visitors are treated to guided tours or can meander at a leisurely pace seven days per week during the May to October season.
What started as a country estate has turned the city of Portsmouth into an attraction. The first topiary garden in the country sits on seven acres with a backdrop of the Narragansett Bay. Tourists are surrounded by 80 tree sculptures and gardens with flowerbeds, herb gardens, and fruit trees. The rose arbor along with 34 other species creates geometric pathways. Delightful animal figures such as a giraffe, ostrich, elephant, teddy bear, and other favorites are showcased.
A variety of historical lighthouses exists throughout the area. Castle Hill is the most famous with its granite structure highlighted by massive boulders. This landmark is not open to the public, although it still guides vessels. Jamestown is home to 64-foot Beavertail Lighthouse, which sits on the southern tip of Beavertail State Park. From this vantage point, the next two stops on the tour can be seen. A ferry ride is required to reach Rose Island Lighthouse, while Point Judith Lighthouse is a 25-mile drive to Narragansett.
Spring, summer, and fall are glorious seasons with diverse foliage dressing this destination. Even summers in Newport don''t get too hot, with temperatures averaging only in the upper-70s in the months of July and August. Temperatures are milder than most New England getaways due to the water’s proximity. Expect mild to cool evenings with ocean breezes. Sweaters should be considered after sunset.
