My best friend and I stayed for their Murder Mystery Weekend in October as It was absolutely awesome! The Inn was just so charming and decorated beautifully. The food was delicious and presented with lovely garnishes. The Inn was located within an easy walking distance from numerous quaint restaurants and shops. But the Murder Mystery itself was the crown jewel. We had so much fun from beginning to wicked end. It was a 3-day weekend of real-life clue!
My wife and I stayed there this fall on a trip back home to the east coast. The house was very nice and our room was great ( Estella). It was a close walk to the mansions and the wharf ( we highly recommend both) and if you like fried clam strips, check out Flo's. Best clam strips ever! Thanks, we'll be back again.
My wife and I recently stayed at the Victorian Ladies Inn to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. We stayed in the Alfred room and it was very cozy and the perfect room for our second honeymoon. The Breakfasts were amazing. Our favorite was the Eggs Newport, although the Stuffed French Toast and Herbed Omelette were also delicious. All of the staff were very helpful and made our stay special. The proximity to the Cliff Walk was also a definite plus. I would highly recommend the Victorian Ladies Inn to anyone considering visiting Newport. I hope we get to visit again in the future.
Our last minute reservation was met with friendly, informative staff. They wanted to make sure we got the most out of our Newport stay. It was very nice to have parking. Room was comfy, cooked breakfast and spaces to sit and enjoy the outside. Easy walk to the harbor, public transportation and various eateries and shopping.
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.
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.
