Prime Location, Wonderful Host, Quiet Clean Rooms

Although we have family on the island we decided to spend the weekend at a B&B downtown Newport. Cooney Cottage was perfect! The Bermuda room was clean, bright, and comfortable with off street parking! Amazing! Rachel was so accommodating on meeting us when we had any questions. The location was great, so close to Cliff Walk, Pasta Beach/Bellevue Ave and a short walk to the other restaurants and all of the sites in the area. A&A Perry

Excellent stay for couple with dog

We stayed this past weekend at Cooney Cottage with our four month puppy and we truly enjoyed it. The house is beautiful and the rooms are nicely decorated, clean and spacious. Rachel is a phenomenal host. She made sure our stay was comfortable and during the times that we were away, she provided an updated on our puppy. The house is perfectly located, walking distance from the beach and a few minutes away from main attraction (mansions, pier, Fort Adams). Breakfast is fresh in the morning. I definitely plan on going back to Newport next summer and will definitely consider staying at Cooney Cottage once again.

Great B&B

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.

Great location!

My husband and I recently stayed at Cooney Cottage with our dog. The location was ideal for visiting the Cliff Walk and the beach. Plenty of opportunities to tire out the dog so the humans could go get some beach time.

Great stay at beautiful quiet inn

Cooney cottage was conveniently located to explore all of Newport. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Ms. Cooney's homemade muffins were a delicious start to fuel our fun filled days in Newport!

Ideal Accommodations

5 on July 12, 2016

Cooney Cottage is located in an ideal area with excellent access to some of the best sites in Newport. There is ample private parking behind the cottage. The location is within walking distance to the beach, Cliff Walk, Bellevue Avenue, the Tennis Hall of Fame, and the fantastic restaurants and shops on the wharf. It was so easy to leave the car and walk all over downtown Newport. The accommodations were beyond our expectations. The cottage is tastefully decorated and the room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We were able to bring our dog and Rachel provided a cot to sleep an additional person. We still had more than enough room. Rachel provided a lovely breakfast each morning with plenty of coffee and delicious homemade muffins. A different flavor of muffin everyday. Rachel was also able to provide excellent guidance for dog friendly activities and restaurants in the area. We utilized the dog friendly harbor cruise that Rachel recommended as well as a couple of restaurants. On top of everything else, the price of lodging was very, very reasonable. So much so that we will surely be back again.
