LaFarge Perry House-Newport

5 on July 26, 2017

We had a wonderful time at LaFarge. The location was convenient to many of the sights and activities. Paula was most helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The master suite was perfect for the 3 of us on a girls trip. I'd highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast!

Finest B&B We've Ever Visited!

5 on July 05, 2017

Everything about LaFarge Perry House is Outstanding. The location is perfect for exploring Newport on foot. The property, living areas & spacious guest rooms are beautifully done. Housekeeping is meticulous (I believe it's done by the staff of the upscale Chanler House, a sister property.) Very delicious breakfast was served in a lovely sunlit dining room. And the innkeeper, Paula, could not have been more gracious & helpful. We stayed for three nights in June, 2017, and intend to return from California as soon as we can.

Just like staying with family!

My mother and I stay here and it was wonderful. Good food and Paula was outstanding! She was always asking if we needed anything. She spoiled us!

Absolutely Beautiful

5 on July 01, 2017

I brought my family and we stayed in the master suite. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, well kept and very clean. The onsite hostess was wonderful. She cooked fabulous breakfasts, was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area. The house is within walking distance to downtown Newport.

Just like staying with family!

Paula (runs the B&B and she is fabulous! She helps you decide where to go, eat, and see while in Newport. Breakfast was very good. The house is spotless! Chocolate cookies every day! Wine and cheese late afternoon. I would stay here again!

Wonderful place to stay!

5 on June 17, 2017

We stayed for 4 days in June 2017, and had a fantastic stay at this Inn. Paula, our Innkeeper, is the heart of this beautiful home. She is welcoming and made us comfortable right away in our beautiful, clean room. Paula gave us a tour and explained about the breakfast in the morning and wine, cheese, and fruit from 4-5 if we cared to stop by the living room. Paula answered questions and gave us tips o make our plans even better! I can't say enough good things about this Inn. We loved hearing the history of the place and looking at the beautiful interior and the garden. I wish we could go back tomorrow! the Inn had Great rooms, beds, baths and a lovely front porch to relax on. Breakfast was delicious and cookies were always around along with tea. Coffee in the morning was perfect!

Comfortable and Classy Access to Newport

3.6 on May 29, 2017

This B&B is run by hired hospitality agents rather than a family like others we've been to, but that didn't take away from the experience. The house is beautifully decorated and was very quiet during our end of May stay. It's close to everything worth seeing in Newport. Worth every penny!

Beautiful Inn and wonderful stay!

5 on March 30, 2017

Our stay was fabulous in the Master Suite. It was very roomy and clean with beautiful period furnishings. The bathroom included a double walk in shower and Jacuzzi bath tub. There was an additional bedroom attached that serves wonderful for added guests or kids. The Innkeeper, Maureen was extremely nice and attentive. She made a delicious breakfast that was served in an incredible dining room/attached sunroom. The wall murals were especially beautiful to dine in. The Inn made our visit extra special with afternoon cookies and early evening wine and cheese. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much and will be visiting again the next time we are in Newport. Top notch place to stay!!!

Everything was absolutely perfect. The room was absolutely wonderful. The breakfasts were as well. The staff was attentive and extremely amiable. Our stay in Newport was highlighted by The Lafarge-Perry House. We will definitely stay there on our next Newport excursion.

Delicious inn

4.4 on January 05, 2017

Nice place, wonderful room, peace and quiet and good breakfast


5 on December 21, 2016

Wonderful getaway. Have already recommended it twice! Room luxurious, breakfast delicious, wine/cheese at 4 in the front room decadent, hospitality consistently superior. La Farge Perry exemplified the best of Newport.

Beautiful but Better for Night Owls

2.6 on December 13, 2016

The room, home and property were amazing! So beautiful! The staff, when we saw them, were very pleasant. The dinning room had many interesting details in the decor, unfortunately we did not get to enjoy it to it's fullest. Breakfast is not served until 8:30, so for early risers such as ourselves we did not partake. Honestly I was very disappointed that we had to leave this beautiful home to seek sustenance elsewhere. As such, I cannot comment on the "onsite dining" as I did not have any food here and regarding "value" I didn't feel I got my money's worth since I paid for a bed AND breakfast for two but only got the bed.

Beautiful Inn

4.0 on December 09, 2016

The Inn was beautiful and was a great setting for a romantic weekend. The master bedroom was comfortable, clean and beautiful. It was a very large room. The location was also excellent. The reason it didn't get excellent scores across the board was because I just didn't think the person in charge there was very helpful or forthcoming on things we should try to do there in Newport. It was our first time there so weren't familiar with the area.

Luxurie and Location

4.4 on December 03, 2016

Our room was big and beautiful. We were in Oliver. We saw some other rooms and they were all very nice. However our bathroom was dark. If you ware make up you might want a different room. I am not a breakfast eater so I can't comment on that. They serve wine at 5 but don't drink it. It's horrible. The location is great. An easy walk to downtown so no need to deal with parking, which is terrible in Newport. They also own the Cliff House on the cliff walk and let us park there for that walk. A real plus. I would absolutely recommend staying here!!

Excellent Accomodations

5 on November 27, 2016

This was one of the best B and Bs we have ever stayed at. The Oliver Perry Room was perfect!

Nice place for an enjoyable stay in Newport!

4.6 on November 22, 2016

Maureen was very helpful in providing information on restaurants and attractions. Very convenient location.

Charming B+B Short Distance from Everything

4.8 on November 02, 2016

My husband and I stayed at La Farge Perry House for two days during our honeymoon, and it was fantastic! We stayed in the Master Suite, which was beautify decorated, had a sprawling bathroom, and overall made us feel like we had our own oasis within the bed and breakfast. Maureen was a wonderful host, and made phenomenal breakfasts every morning (I usually hate eggs, but genuinely enjoyed the quiche that Maureen made one morning. I would love to have it again!) We brought bikes with us and were able to very easily bike into town, but you could just as easily walk (we drove to the mansions.) Maureen always had complimentary wine and cheese every afternoon at 4pm, and we enjoyed taking our wine onto the front porch to relax (only downside here was that the front porch looks onto a street with a fair amount of traffic.) Overall, it was an amazing honeymoon, very relaxing, and we loved every minute of our stay at La Farge Perry House. I would highly recommend it to anyone coming through Newport!

A memorable stay

Delicious pancake for breakfast

Fall Foliage Trip

4.6 on October 16, 2016

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!

Our room was very large and comfortable, Nice large bathroom. Enjoyed the small sunroom to eat breakfast.

Newport Trip

5 on September 14, 2016

We had a great time in Newport and accommodations provided by the La Farge Perry House were outstanding. Maureen and her staff did a great job.

Wonderful first time stay in Newport

5 on August 26, 2016

We loved La Farge Perry House, from the inviting welcome to the perfect room. We stayed in the Matthew Perry room and it was the perfect size for a family of 3 (one toddler in a pack 'n play). The breakfast was wonderful and in a beautiful dining room. The innkeeper was very accommodating and sweet with our 2 year old. Lastly, the location was ideal - a 3-10 minute walk to shops, eateries, etc. Definitely recommend this B&B.


4.6 on August 15, 2016

We really enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was a nice start to the day, the rooms were very clean and decorated well. In addition, Maureen was a wonderful host very friendly and eager to please. We hope to go back sometime.

Lovely inn, delicious food and coffee, great location

4.8 on July 22, 2016

My husband and two friends stayed in a suite at the La Farge Perry House while in Newport for a wedding. The innkeeper was so accommodating, first with our late check-in, and then with my food allergies. She made a delicious breakfast that was gluten-free and vegetarian for me, and the breakfast that the others had was amazing, too! The rooms are super clean, spacious, and so charming. Not a single complaint about this place!

A gorgeous B&B

4.2 on June 27, 2016

My husband and I stayed in the sumptuous John La Farge room, on the first floor. The decor was lovely and the large jetted tub was decadent. We were able to walk to the downtown area in a few minutes. The breakfast was delicious, however we wished there was a bit more variety. The innkeeper, Maureen, is an impeccable hostess. We would absolutely return.

Oliver Perry room

4.6 on June 24, 2016

It was a pleasure. Great quiet room and terrific hostess

Lovely B&B

5 on June 05, 2016

Great 3 day weekend stay! Wonderful hospitality, breakfasts and rooms. Easy walking distance to all of Newport.

Lovely Place

5 on May 07, 2016

We come to Newport every year, and this is our favorite place! We discovered this lovely inn through Living Social last year...what a find! The room (Oliver Perry) was absolutely beautiful and clean beyond expectations. The bed was very comfortable and the place was relatively quiet given that it was full. The innkeeper was very warm and welcoming and the treats she left for us were yummy! Location is perfect - very close to town. We are so looking forward to returning next year, and the year after, and the year after...!

Couldn't ask for better

5 on April 20, 2016

I don't give five stars lightly. But simply put, if I had a sixth star to give, I would gladly do so. (Especially the service.) The John Lafarge room was beautiful, with a canopy bed and a huge private bathroom. The whole property was immaculately maintained, and has private parking. We stayed two days, and breakfast was excellent both days. Pancakes with super crispy bacon, and a quiche with fresh fruit. Superb coffee and cookies all day! But most importantly, we can’t say enough about Maureen, the proprietor. As lovely and welcoming as can be, and just delightful to talk to. All in all, a wonderful experience. So much better than a random hotel, and at least comparable in price. We will certainly be going back.

A classic, beautiful and warm Newport home

4.8 on April 15, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the LaFarge Perry bed and breakfast this past weekend. The house is beautifully maintained, very clean and has classic period furnishings. Maureen is the perfect innkeeper. She is pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were phenomenal and the glass of wine in the living room was relaxing. The house is also located within a short stroll to the historic district. We loved the stay and would surely visit again.

An amazing place with lovely crew

4.8 on March 31, 2016

The room was so clean and tidy. The position of the place was so good. The crew was so professional and kind. I highly recommend people to go there ¿¿

Very good experience, nice, comfortable and very friendly

4.8 on March 28, 2016

The room was perfect, nice beds, everything clean. The housekeeper was very nice and friendy, the breakfast was delicious. I would defenitly come again.

LOVED this B&B!!!

5 on March 21, 2016

We have stayed in a LOT of B&Bs in Newport. The La Farge Perry House was absolutely the best yet! Beautifully decorated, cozy & warm, spotlessly clean,conveniently located, this B&B has it all. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed chatting with the innkeeper. We will definitely go back!

Beautiful Room, Wonderful Atmosphere

5 on March 10, 2016

This is a lovely house with a wonderful, inviting atmosphere. We loved our 3rd floor room and the blueberry-stuffed French toast, fresh fruit, and Greek yogurt were excellent! We didn't want to leave!

Exceptional weekend!!!

5 on March 03, 2016

From the time of arrival to our departure our surroundings were simple, quiet, and elegant. A complimentary tasting of local wine and cheese begins at 4pm. A full hot breakfast, freshly cut fruit, and yogurt is served each morning. And don't miss the homemade cookies!!! Because the wonderful innkeeper ensured our weekend was delightful In every way we will return often.

Top of the Class B&B

5 on March 01, 2016

We had excellent service from the time we got there. Enjoyed complimentary wine and cheese in a beautiful room with pleasant views. Great location with plenty of quality restaurants. We were treated very well and also, the homemade breakfast was fantastic. We will definitely be back in the summer!

Absolutely wonderful

5 on February 24, 2016

Our stay at La Farge Perry House was truly magical. The innkeeper provided delicious breakfast each morning and was incredibly personable to us. We stayed in the Oliver Perry room. It had a nautical motif, which made it feel extremely homey. The room was kept impeccably clean for us every night when we would get back from our time in town. I could not ask for more in a B&B.

Wonderful stay

4.4 on February 21, 2016

We had a wonderful stay at La Farge. The food was the best we had all weekend. The only difficulty we had was regulating the room temp and the jacuzzi temp. The room was boiling and we couldn't sleep so we had to open windows to cool down. The jacuzzi was running cool water and wouldn't get warm the first night and then was scalding the second night, which was ok because we could add cold water. The bed was very comfy and the room was beautiful. The inn itself was also beautiful and comfortable. The sitting room was great to relax after a day of walking around the mansions and shops. The afternoon snacks and tea was a perfect way to unwind and the inn keeper was wonderful and helpful too. I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a romantic or special getaway.

Very relaxing stay

5 on February 19, 2016

My wife and I stayed over the valentines weekend which also happened to be the coldest day on the year. The rooms are as described in BnB and the hostess is very welcoming and offered wine and cheese in the early afternoon. Loved the pancakes for breakfast. The place is close by to mansion tours, and variety of restaurants. A visit to "Mamma Luisa" is a must if you love Italian food.beware they have 2 HR wait time in case you don't have reservation.

Beautiful Valentine's Weekend

4.8 on February 18, 2016

Could not recommend this place highly enough. The rooms are gorgeous - each unique and interesting and well-updated, and the service is excellent. Looking forward to visiting again.

Satisfied customers

3.2 on October 31, 2015

A pleasant stay in a conveniently located residence. Big room. Ideal fir exploring Newport.

LaFarge Parry is a winner!

4.4 on October 23, 2015

Thought the location being off the beaten path would be a little quieter. But that was the only negative and it would not keep us from going back because the room was fantastic, the people were great and the weekend was a great experience.

Great Time at La Farge Perry House

4.6 on September 09, 2015

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the LaFarge Perry House. What particularly made our stay special was the Innkeeper Marise. She is fabulous at her job, a great chef, story teller and willing to recommend local restaurants and attractions that are not touristy (i.e. lobster rolls at Easton Beach - 2 for $14.00). The room was spotless and the housekeeping staff keeps a sharp eye on ensuring all amenities are as they should be. We will definitely return, if not just to renew acquaintances with Marise!

Beautiful House, Lovely Stay

4.8 on August 26, 2015

The La Farge Perry house is a beautiful old house situated not too far from the main docks and harbor of Newport (about a 10-15 minute walk). We stayed in one of the master bedrooms, which was very large and very comfortable (actually had two different bedrooms on either side of the bathroom, and it easily sleeps four. Though the one bed definitely larger than the other). Bed, sheets, tub, towels, everything comfortable. The staff was extraordinary and very well-informed helping us figure out what we should do, and augment the plans we already had for our time in Newport. Great breakfast! We enjoyed the Lemon blueberry pancakes and bacon, and meeting the other guests in the dining room at breakfast. Lovely and highly recommended!!


5 on August 14, 2015

Marise the innkeeper is fabulous and sets the stage for a great experience. This was our second stay and we will be back again.

Fantastic Stay at La Farge Perry House!

4.8 on May 26, 2015

The La Farge Perry House was a fantastic place to spend Memorial Day weekend! The rooms are beautiful, the service was outstanding, and the location was perfect!

Great weekend

5 on May 24, 2015

Marise... Hostess with the mostest. Rooms were clean and large. Jacuzzi tub was great. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. We were first time b&bers. Now we don't want to stay anywhere but b&bs. Would I stay here again? YES!

Wonderful stay with a wonderful innkeeper.

5 on May 16, 2015

Spent three magical days in Newport staying at the beautiful, in every way, La Farge Perry House. They simply don't come any better than Marise the innkeeper. Her care and attention to detail is superb, breakfasts beautiful and her friendship so welcoming. Thank you for everything Marise.

Best bed and breakfast in Newport!

Great Romantic Weekend

5 on January 08, 2015

We came here for our 28thh wedding anniversary. Everything was great. Will definitely come here again.


4.4 on January 06, 2015

The master suite was unbelievable. It was an extemely friendly and warm environment. They advertise as a home away from home and it really was! I would absolutely stay here again.

Delightful Stay in Newport

4.4 on October 20, 2014

We found this place doing a Google search for a B&B in Newport, RI and were so pleased with the "find". The house was beautiful with many amenities and our room was lovely. The innkeeper was efficient and accommodating as well as someone with a great sense of humor. If we had to find one fault, it would be the breakfasts. While they were certainly well prepared and filling, our experience with B&Bs has included a very special breakfast. These were good (e.g., omelette one day and pancakes the next). These were ordinary. While this would not prevent us from returning to this inn if we were in Newport in the future or from recommending it to others, but this was the one disappointment.

Convenient to center Newport

Cozy B&B

4.8 on October 05, 2014

Our two night stay at the LaFarge Perry House was perfect. Marise was such a helpful hostess. She recommended dining places and made the reservations for us. The mansion tour which she also recommended was wonderful. Breakfasts on both mornings were absolutely delicious and her nightly baked treats were a delight. We loved the nautical room which we chose and we felt right at home. A truly great place to stay!

Maurice is a Marvel

4.6 on September 24, 2014

The rooms were lovely, the location terrific, but Maurice the innkeeper was the icing on our cake! Maurice made dinner reservations for us and my in-laws on the Food and Wine Festival night, which we NEVER could have managed without her. She was also did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable, with humor and grace! Carrie Greene

Absolutely wonderful

5 on September 06, 2014

Everything about La Farge Perry House was wonderful; we have true appreciation for the lovely, immaculate suite, the comfortable beds, the breakfast and the housekeeper. (Yes, you, Morice!) It truly has a "homey" feel. We have traveled from NH for years and enjoy our quiet piece of Newport at the La Farge Perry.


5 on July 21, 2014

We stayed in the Master's Suite with our kids. It was great. It was less expensive than 2 rooms at a budget hotel, and it was opulent! Great value for a family with kids. The house is lovely and Newport is great. A bit touristy in the centre but the Cliff Walk and Mansions were fascinating. Had a great lunch at The Chanler, overlooking the water.

Wonderful experience

5 on July 13, 2014

When entering the b&b we were met by Maurise, the manager, who was friendly, welcoming, and informative with maps and suggestions. She makes you feel at home immediately. Our room was quite nice with its own bathroom. Breakfast was delicious as well. A great choice when staying in Newport.

In town for Wedding

5 on June 23, 2014

We loved every second. We stayed in the spacious Master Suite. The room was gorgeous. We had plenty of room for our little one and her nanny. Great location, too. We were able to walk to Kay Chapel and to the Tennis Hall of Fame. The Cliff Walk was a short drive away, though, it could have been walked also if we had more time.

April trip - 2014

4.0 on June 20, 2014

Very nice location, can walk to main street and ocean views. Very spacious rooms. Excellent breakfast. Inn keeper very nice but a little "intrusive" at times for my taste (e.g. where did you go, how was it?, etc.). Otherwise highly recommended.

Come for the bed, take advantage of the innkeeper!

4.6 on June 06, 2014

Everything was great, especially our innkeeper Marise! The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The food was excellent. Our stay in Newport was made even better by the advice on where to eat for our other meals.

A gem of a bed and breakfast!

5 on June 04, 2014

We felt welcome the minute we walked in the front door. Our accommodations were exceptional. When we return to Newport we will stay at the Lafarge Perry House! The innkeeper Marise made our stay even more enjoyable in so many ways.

la farge perry

4.6 on May 11, 2014

This was our 2nd stay at LaFarge Perry.It was as satisfying this stay as the last. Maris welcomes you as if you were long lost family. The house has interesting history and is convenient to everything. We look forward to our next stay there.

An absolute must

4.8 on May 09, 2014

This is a pearl. The most friendly welcome in an historical house . Stayed at Perry' room because of the quantity of luggage (ground floor) .

Excellent in every respect

5 on April 10, 2014

Marise, the Manager, made our brief stay in this B&B most enjoyable, with her excellent recommendations on places to visit and to dine. The room was well appointed, clean and the entire B&B had a very homey atmosphere, as compared to a hotel.


4.6 on March 27, 2014

This place is jawdropping gorgeous at an excellent location with a more than excellent inn keeper. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests and we've seen all the rooms. The rooms on the first floor and the master suite will blow you away. The cheaper rooms on the third floor are still fantastic. The only minor things were a stain on the bathmat and the fact that the shower is a bit weak and took some time to warm up. You can easily walk to downtown and all the mansions. The oldest tavern in the US, The White Horse tavern is less than 3 minutes walk and have fantastic food and atmosphere. The innkeeper is amazingly warm and welcome and has great stories. She also provides a to order breakfast set up in a beatiful room. It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a wedding.

A Great Weekend Stay

4.6 on March 19, 2014

Marise made our stay a great one. She was very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. We stayed in the Master Suite and it is indeed the best room at a very modest price; with a 2nd bedroom, big Jacuzzi tub, two shower heads and a bathroom bigger than the 2nd bedroom. My only complaint was that the rooms were a bit cold for me. However, once Marise was informed, she made sure that we had the capability to adjust the room temperature. She provided all the local happenings and made excellent recommendations in regards to where to dine. Breakfast was good...but what made it great were the croissants. They were the best that I have had in many years. I would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in town.

Lovely B&B

5 on March 02, 2014

This was my first B&B experience and I was extremely impressed! I hope to return to the La Farge Perry again someday. We stayed in the Margret room, which was absolutely lovely. The room was a good size with a queen bed, two armchairs and a desk, the closet had a mini-fridge with water bottles (and was a lifesaver for storing leftovers!), and the bathroom was about 3/4 of the size of the bedroom. The bathtub was HUGE and had very relaxing jets - my only complaint was that it took forever to fill up. I was a tiny bit concerned that the bedroom might be a tiny bit too "girly" for my boyfriend, but the pictured cream bed had been replaced with a very handsome dark wood frame. Marise, the inn keeper, was absolutely charming. When we first arrived, she found a vase for my flowers, told us the best places to eat, and got us settled right in. There was a little trouble with parking, since we were the last guests to arrive that night and every one else had brought large SUVs, but she made sure we weren't parked on the street. She made the most scrumptious breakfast in the morning as well - fresh fruit (pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries!), yogurt, granola, coffee, tea, juice, amazing french toast and bacon one morning, and delicious omelettes and sausages another.

Comme à la maison

4.6 on December 31, 2013

Nous avons adoré notre séjour au Lafarge Perry house. Nous nous sommes senties, ma fille et moi, comme à la maison et il a été difficile de partir!

A memorable overnight stay

4.8 on November 07, 2013

The Innkeeper, Marise, was one of the main reasons for the Outstanding review. She is knowledgeable of what to see and do in Newport, recommended great restaurants, took the time to welcome us and make us feel at home.

What a treat

5 on October 22, 2013

Merise is a treasure. Truly the best innkeeper my wife and I have encountered in many stays around the country. She is an excellent host, charming and fun. Her advice on local dining and entertainment were right on target. She was very welcoming and accomodating to our needs. Our room was quite clean; the ammenities are first rate. The food served at breakfast and the snacks provided after hours were both excellent. I will recommend the LaFarge-Perry house to anyone traveling to Newport. My wife and I will certainly be back.

Nice Inn - change of innkeeper means low quality of breakfast

3.4 on October 17, 2013

My wife and stayed four times here. The Inn and rooms are very nice and I would definitely recommend it. However, the innkeeper has changed from Midge (great!) to Jennifer, and now Marise. While she is nice and very helpful, the quality of the breakfast and afternoon tea/cookie is without comparison with the previous innkeeper, Midge. Midge you to cook the breakfast to order, you can ask any time of eggs, bacon, french toast, etc. Sundays Eggs Benedict as well. Plus freshly made pastries and marmalade. This service was worth the price of the room. Now, breakfast is much simpler, not made to order, no real variety. I am disappointed and I hope they will change it. We like Newport ant the Inn, however next time we may look for a different place.

Cozy Inn with warm hospitality

4.2 on October 08, 2013

We stayed at the La Farge Perry House for our Anniversary. It is a small beautiful Inn- and just a short walk to Town and short drive to Ocean Ave. The Inn Keeper was extremely helpful in suggesting area tours and dining. Breakfast was delicious in the morning. We will be returning.

Great time ion Newport

4.8 on September 30, 2013

We had a great time. The room was comfortable and well appointed.. Met some great folks at breakfast. The Innkeeper provided some great insights and recommendations for things to do and where to eat in Newport. We will book here again.

A fantastic stay in a glamour cottage

5 on September 27, 2013

We went to Newport two week ago and we lodged in this luxury inn. Every detail in this historic house contributes to create a fantastic atmosphere. Our room was The Master Suite elegantly furnished. The bathroom was huge and extremely refined, we had never seen a fireplace in a bathroom ! Marisa, the innkeeper, is very kind and willing to give us useful information. Thanks Marisa the most "simpatica" lady in New England and see you in Rome!

Great days

4.6 on September 22, 2013

We stayed for two days at the Matthew Perry Room and we loved it. We had a lot of space and a nice view. Everything was walkable and we got very good restaurant recommendations.

The most charming bed and breakfast ever

5 on August 31, 2013

We had a great time at La Farge Perry. Luxurious bedroom and bathroom, most helpful landlady, good breakfast. For the first time we found a place that could rival our own house


5 on August 26, 2013

The place is absolutely fabulous. The room we stayed in (master suite) is one of the nicest rooms in which i have stayed in our trips in new England. And the service was great. Thanks a lot for the good time !

Comfort, Charm, and Class

5 on August 25, 2013

We stayed at the La Farge Perry House for one weekend and could barely bring ourselves to leave. Our room somehow combined opulence with cozy comfort, and we felt like royalty in pajamas. The innkeeper was warm and hospitable, and brews a mean cup of coffee. The Inn is located in a quiet neighborhood that is within walking distance to the beach, the Cliff Walks, and the downtown shopping areas. We cannot wait to stay in the charming La Farge Perry House again!


4.6 on August 06, 2013

We stayed here during the jazz festival and glad we did! The innkeeper, Maurice, was exceptional. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The house well maintained. Cant wait to return!


4.6 on July 17, 2013

We had a tremendous weekend with Marise at the LaFarge Perry House. Beautiful room and house, well kept, and with a charming innkeeper who really made our stay. Would be thrilled to come back.

The highlight of our stay in Newport

4.8 on July 03, 2013

Having a weekend of dreary weather didn't stop us from having a great time, and the main reason was our wonderful Bed and Breakfast. We usually opt for B&B's over hotels, and so we've experienced the good and the bad. La Farge Perry House was certainly one of the best we've stayed at to date. The accommodations exceeded expectations, the room pics on the website do not do them justice. The Inn keeper was fantastic, I felt so at home, yet so well cared for. Each morning we were met by a fantastic breakfast and relaxing morning of coffee and chat with the Innkeeper and other guests. What's more, I truly felt at home at the Inn. Each room was open to us to relax and enjoy. This was easily one of the best B&B experiences I've ever had.

The Propety was Great! And Marise made it even better!!

5 on June 19, 2013

This is an outstanding property that is a pleasure to stay in. Marise, the Innkeeper, makes a real effort to involve every guest in conversation with her as well as with the other guests. Marise is an excellent cook and the breakfasts we had were wonderful. We can certainly recommend without reservations. Al Trimble

Wonderful stay at La Farge Perry House

5 on June 06, 2013

We stayed in the Master Suite. It was very spacious (loved the bathroom!) and well-decorated. There is a smaller sleeping area on the other side of the bathroom which was perfect for our adult daughter. Marise was helpful, friendly, and cooked great breakfasts! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a B&B in the Newport area.

Outstanding experience.

We are repeat customers and recommend this B&B to everyone

Great stay!

5 on May 14, 2013

I've visited Newport 4 times. This was the best b & b out of all my over night stays.

Memorable stay in Newport

5 on May 07, 2013

We were so very impressed with the value for money at La Farge Perry house. I thought when booking that I was choosing a cheaper option, however I stayed in the Matthew Perry room which had a very luxurious feel as I ate a homemade macaroon and enjoyed a lovely spa bath. Jennifer was at pains to ensure we treated the place like our own and treated us to a delicious omelette breakfast with cereals and croissants. The house was decorated in a lovely style. I would highly recommend staying here.

Great B&B, Great Value

4.6 on May 03, 2013

This B&B is in a good location that is walkable to lots of areas in Newport. The room rate was definitely a plus and much better than if you were staying close to the water. All in all, a lovely B&B that I'd stay at again.

A wonderful retreat and an excellent location

5 on April 14, 2013

Innkeeper went out of her way to make us feel at home and give us suggestions for dining, etc. Location was excellent for sightseeing. It was the first day we had seen green grass and flowers in months.

Another great weekend!

5 on April 13, 2013

My fiancé and I returned to the La Farge Perry after staying there a year ago. The best part was Jennifer, the innkeeper, remembered us right away. We loved it last year and this year was no different. We tried a smaller room than last year- only because we'd like to try each room at least once, not because we disliked the Master Suit from last year. The Margaret room was very nice and quaint. The bathroom was very nice as well. Clean and welcoming. The balcony is accessible from the room, which is nice when you want to sit outside. The breakfasts were just as we remembered- homemade and cooked to order (hash browns too!). Everything was very tasty, right down to the macaroons that Jennifer gave us for the ride. We can't wait to make this a yearly tradition. Thanks again Jennifer!

Engagement weekend

4.8 on April 12, 2013

My fiancee and I recently stayed at the La Farge Perry House for two nights. The room was large, with a fireplace and a comfortable bed. The bathroom included a large jacuzzi bathtub, which my fiancee took advantage of. The breakfasts were great, some of the best meals we had that weekend. The service was excellent and Jennifer was more than happy to help with recommendations and advice. The house was full for the weekend, but we never really heard any of the other guests until we came down for breakfast. All in all it was a great weekend and we will be returning.

Best of the Best

4.4 on February 26, 2013

I had a wonderful long weekend in Newport and stayed in the John LaFarge room - gorgeous dark wood and red motif made it the perfect choice for a Valentines get-away. The house is impecably kept by Jennifer, who is the walking definition of great customer service. She was warm and friendly and an excellent cook (best eggs benedict I have ever had). I will never stay anywhere else in Newport - this is THE place.

Weekend Stay

5 on February 21, 2013

We have stayed at other Bed and Breakfasts in Newport and LaFarge Perry was the best by far.

Loved our stay at La Farge Perry House

4.6 on January 12, 2013

We were delighted with our stay at La Farge Perry House. Beautiful room, great location, helpful service and yummy breakfast. We look forward to returning again.

Christmas in Newport

4.4 on December 23, 2012

The La Farge was beautifully decorated for Christmas, which added to its warm and charming atmosphere. We were sorry we could only stay one night. Hope to get back soon!

Glorious weekend away

5 on December 20, 2012

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The room was quiet and beautiful, the Jacuzzi tub for two was perfect, and the made-to-order breakfasts were delicious!

A fantastic get away!!!!

5 on November 28, 2012

My husband and I took a break from our busy lives and found this perfect B&B in Newport. We were greeted by Jennifer, the innkeeper who made us feel so welcome. Her cooking was exceptional and her personality was delightful!! We settled into our room for the night, but before getting into bed enjoyed a bubbly jacuzzi bath. What a surprise! The location of the inn was close to all the sights that we visited while in Newport. We were very blessed because the weather was perfect! Jennifer prepared a delicious breakfast each morning and served tea,cider and home baked goods each afternoon. We loved chatting with her and upon our departure she was kind enough to take photos for us and we exchanged big hugs and promised to return. This is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway or just a night of relaxation. We look forward to our next visit and highly recommend this wonderful B&B! Ed and Jennie, Cromwell, Ct

Lovely B&B

4.8 on November 26, 2012

Great hospitality and great breakfast. Jennifer, the InnKeeper was very gracious and even made a special dessert for my husband's birthday.

Great Stay!

4.6 on November 09, 2012

Great little B+B tucked away from the harbor in Newport, but close enough to walk.

Lovely house, lovely lady.

5 on October 30, 2012

This is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in, we were in the John Le Farge room which you could not fault, large 4 poster bed, jacuzzi bath and normal bath lovely linen and towels, the rest of the house was just as good and guests could use any room. jenny was the perfect host making us feel at home and always available for advise or just a chat, jenny also provided wonderful breakfasts that changed every day. We are so glad we found this place.

Outstanding experience in terms of "B&B"!

5 on October 29, 2012

What a wonderful reception as we four Germans arrived! Jennifer gave us a warm handshake and that was only the beginning of our wonderful stay in the La Farge Perry House! My wife, our son and daughter felt as if we were in the center point of Jennifer's live, of course we weren't, but we felt so!! The rooms are not only "rooms", there are small apartments with all amenities in a historic garment. Our Master Suite was great in the truest sense of the word. Jennifer showed their hospitality in many cases so that we felt like home, really!! At this point, we have to say thank you for your warm and tender hospitality, Jennifer, and that all your guests are welcomed as we!!!

Couldnt have been any better!

5 on October 26, 2012

We loved it so much, we will think of our stay for months! We can recommend it to evrybody, who likes B&Bs.

a historical place

4.8 on October 20, 2012

Newport Mansion Sojourn

4.2 on October 15, 2012

Brief stopover in Newport was enhanced by a stay at this excellent Inn. Fine period house well decorated in reproduction furniture from the period and spotlessly clean. Beautifully appointed rooms and good service throughout. Well recommended

Wonderful stay in Newport, RI

5 on October 14, 2012

Everything about this b & b was perfect! We had a great stay!

Wonderful stay at La Farge Perry House!

5 on October 05, 2012

This was our first time to Newport and not our last. The accommodations were fantasic, beautiful room and view of the harbor. Walking distance to everything. The breakfasts were scrumptious, thanks to Jennifer! Our wonderful host Jennifer made our visit so special. Look forward to another visit to La Farge Perry House! Paul and Bridget

Awesome B&B!

5 on October 04, 2012

Stayed in the Master Suite and loved it. Huge bathroom is the best part. The inn was very quiet despite being full which was nice- very little outside street noise too. Jennifer is a very gracious hostess. Breakfast was great (chocolate chip macaroons in afternoon are awesome!), and the walk down to the waterfront is super quick. Great location. Would definitely return.

One of the best B&B we have stayed in!

4.0 on August 15, 2012

Amazing breakfast, spot clean, space, charm....

A wonderful retreat in Newport

5 on August 01, 2012

I recently spent a summer weekend at the La Farge Perry House ... the inn has an interesting history; it was the 19th century residence of the artist John La Farge and his wife Margaret, a descendant of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Our room, the John La Farge room, was quiet, comfortable, and beautifully decorated in deep warm burgundy tones, but the piece de resistance was the enormous bathroom with a wonderfully contemporary stained glass window by the artist above the jacuzzi tub. Jennifer, the innkeeper, made our stay even more memorable with her hospitality and generous gourmet breakfasts. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Newport!

Stayed here the weekend of our wedding...

5 on July 25, 2012

We took over the entire inn the weekend of our wedding, and our stay was nothing short of fabulous! The rooms were impeccable, the breakfast and homemade goodies were delicious and Jennifer the innkeeper went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. We will definitely be returning, hopefully for our anniversary! Thank you again


4.8 on July 13, 2012

POSITIVELY RECOMMENDED,NOTHING DISAPPOINTED US. Our room on 3rd floor ,at rear of house had lovely views towards harbour. Bed very comfortable,nice linen etc.Lovely to have small room between bedroom and bathroom,nice place to sit with feet up and read.Nothing too much trouble for our host Jennifer,extra bottled water etc. Breakfasts absolutely delicious,savoury or sweet or a smaller portion of both! Access to sitting room and kitchen ,an upmarket home from home. The Honeys Cornwall UK


5 on July 09, 2012

The La Farge Perry is so relaxing. Jennifer makes has the most warm sense about her. She makes you feel right at home. The breakfast was out of this world!

Great overall experience! Breakfast was amazing!

4.8 on July 05, 2012

Jennifer, the innkeeper, was very helpful. She gave us lots of advice on what to do while in town and how to get places. She even tracked down chairs and beach towels for an afternoon on the beach. She kept us apprised of events in town. She was an amazing cook - the asparagus and goat cheese omelets and the caramelized banana pancakes are enough to go back for alone! The afternoon and late-night homemade soft chocolate chip cookies were also delicious! The room was very clean and nice. We were on the 3rd floor in the Margaret La Farge Room. It did have angled ceilings and was a little tight on space but very manageable considering how little time you spend in your room. The bathroom was a great size and very pretty. Water pressure was a little low but completely within reason. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful vacation

4.6 on July 02, 2012

We spent two nights in Newport at the La Farge Perry House. We had a large room that was emaculate. A small problem is that because the room was on the third floor, it was created from the attic and had a sloping ceiling in the sleeping area which made it very difficult to walk in. Also, all the guest rooms are on the third floor with no elevator. Breaksfast was exellent and Jennifer, the innkeeper, made us anything that we wanted. The house is in a residential area and walking distance into town, though it may be too long for some people. I can recommend it to anyone who wants a small, intimate b&b.

Excellent visit.

5 on June 21, 2012

We had a fantastic visit. Innkeeper was kind with great recommendations. We'll be back!

Great Bed and Breakfast!

5 on June 18, 2012

This was a fantastic bed and breakfast with interesting decor, great service, and a relaxing atmosphere. The inkeeper was kind and thoughtful.

Lovely Inn

5 on June 13, 2012

What a lovely inn. Our trip to Newport was short, but made much sweeter by staying at the LaFarge Perry House. We arrived late, but were made to feel welcome by Jennifer. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had a good nights rest. Breakfast was delicious and leisurely. I would definitely stay here again for a longer period of time. Well done, Jennifer!

Great B&B with awesome hostess. Walking distance to the water and shopping.

4.4 on June 12, 2012

This place is great for a weekend getaway. It is within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the water. The rooms were clean, the hostess was knowledgeable, and the breakfast in the morning was delicious and plentiful.

La farge provides great Newport experience

5 on June 07, 2012

Jennifer, the innkeeper, made our stay memorable. From the excellent service and insightful conversation down to the gourmet breakfast of made to order eggs florentine and organic yogurt with fresh fruits. The inn is quiet and stately and so inviting you honestly can't wait to get back at the end of the day to relax. We had a mini family reunion and Jennifer graciously offered the parlor if we wanted to host a cocktail party. This was a fabulous stay for us.

Small, elegant, unique and comfortable

5 on June 01, 2012

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, the LaFarge Perry is within walking distance to the waterfront which is a plus and it has onsite parking. The innkeeper Jennifer goes out of her way to make you welcome and comfortable. Decorated wilth antiques it is like stepping back in time. I would recommend this to anyone as an alternative to the vanilla chain hotels.

Lovely B & B, well located, nice breakfast, outstanding service.

A Romantic Birthday Getaway!

5 on May 10, 2012

From the moment we walked into this beautiful gem, smelled the aroma of fresh cookies baking, and looked upon the exquisite furnishings we knew we were in for a wonderful getaway! Jennifer, the innkeeper, met us and made us feel welcome immediately. Her wonderful breakfasts were a culinary delight using always what is in season. Jennifer made us feel that we part of a family. She packed us treats for a trip to Block Island, gave us great dinner suggestions, and even shared recipes with us. Our room was simply beautiful and the amenities were first rate, including fluffy robes. The location of the La Farge Perry is near all that there is to enjoy in Newport. We can't wait to go back!!

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast!

4.6 on May 09, 2012

We loved our stay at La Farge. Jennifer was very hospitable & friendly, breakfast was delicious, & I loved being able to eat chocolate chip cookies during the day, & chocolate chip macaroons & tea at night! It was a great place to stay for the money we spent - great deal!!

Great location

5 on April 27, 2012

Located in a very quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The innkeeper , Jennifer, was very helpful and gave us lots of information. The room was large and on the top floor.

Fantastic Getaway!

5 on April 16, 2012

If you choose to stay at the La Farge Perry House you will not be disappointed. From the moment we arrived Jennifer, the innkeeper, made us feel at home. We were served tea and fantastic cookies upon check-in. The cookies were warm and wonderful; they are available throughout the day. Jennifer gave us a tour of the inn and took us up to the master suite. When she opened the door the room was cozy and inviting. You could get lost in the huge bathroom, with its jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower for two. There are two vanities with great lighting. We decided to dine at the Bouchard in Newport, the french food and service were excellent, a special treat. Jennifer provided turn-down service and you have complete access to the inn's sitting room and friendly family room. If you want to read, finish a puzzle or choose a video to take up to you room with a few extra cookies it's great! Jennifer made breakfast to our husband had eggs with asparagus and she made delicious french toast with cream and blueberries for me. What a treat! This is the place to stay in Newport, your every need is taken care of and you will enjoy the warmth a comforts of home. This was a great getaway.

Delightful...Jennifer was a wonderful hostess. She made us feel very much at home and provided a super breakfast and showed us photos of her dog and cat...also showed us great books about Mr. LaFarge.

5 on April 05, 2012

Jennifer is a superb hostess who made us feel so welcome in this beautiful home. She showed us some really interesting books about Mr. Lafarge and we exchanged photos of our dogs and cats. Also she provided a wonderful breakfast which included a vegetable frittata, apple bread, croissants and fresh fruit.

comfortable and delicious

4.8 on January 12, 2012

Our stay in Newport could not have been better at the La Farge Perry. Midge, the hostess, was FABOLOUS! Room was clean and the bathroom was huge with a nice tub. If I didnt mention the snacks and accommodations let me do it again. Midge was able to recommend restaurants. Midge's chocolate chip macaroons are top notch and there was only a few waiting for us when we got back. Special stuffed turnovers with breakfast were incredible as well. Ill let you in on a secret, she gives you the recipe when you check out! Thanks for a great stay....see you soon

The La Farge Perry House

4.4 on January 04, 2012

We loved our stay at the La Farge Perry house. This is our second visit and it was just as pleasant as the first time. Midge is an outstanding host as well as cook just as we remembered her. The blueberry scones, macaroons, and fresh jams were delicious. We stayed at the John La Farge room, which was elegantly decorated. It was a great start to the New Year in Newport.

Great Stay But Needs Dusting

2.8 on December 25, 2011

I had a great stay at La Farge Perry! The rooms have a historic feel and are decorated beautifully. The only suggestion I would have is for the rooms to be dusted and cleaned a little better. I could see the dust on the walls and in other areas. I could also see areas that needed a good cleaning; however the linens and beroom sheets were very clean.

Wonderful Experience at LaFarge Perry House

4.8 on November 15, 2011

Our first experience was the day before we arrived. When I registered, I indicated that we thought we would arrive around 2 p.m. Midge called me to say that check-in time was 3 p.m., but if we wanted we could come any time after 1 p.m. No matter how nice a place may look, it is only as good as the ambiance offered by the innkeeper. We found Midge to be a pleasure to speak with, a fount of local knowledge, and a great chef/baker. When Midge found out we hadn't made dinner reservations we had a reservation at "the best Italian restaurant" in Newport before our suitcase was in our room. Breakfasts were delicious, with fresh fruit, eggs/pancakes/french toast made to order, and wonderful blueberry scones. The house itself was beautiful, spotless, and conveniently located, if not really within close walking distance to most of the tourist attractions in Newport. I don't necessarily know when we will be back in Newport, but I do know that we wouldn't go anywhere else. And we will tell all our friends and family that there is only one place to stay -- at the La Farge Perry House. Shelton, CT

Unexpected Gem

5 on November 14, 2011

A warm welcome with helpful information about Newport and the B&B itself, then a lovely and comfortable room, great bathroom with top toiletries and nice views of the garden and nearby homes. Breakfasts were superior with great choices beautifully prepared. Flowers from the B&B garden were everywhere, creatively arranged.

Beautifully kept property with delicious breakfasts

4.0 on November 14, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay here. The photos don't do justice to how lovely the rooms are and Midge's breakfasts are sublime. Midge herself couldn't be more helpful and ensured that we had dinner reservations every night, which she did herself and nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent Stay

5 on November 13, 2011

Midge was wonderful and we enjoyed our one night at the B&B. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Outstanding Experience

5 on November 02, 2011

Everything was even better than the photos on the website depicted! Enjoyed every bit of our stay.

Luxury and Professionalism

4.8 on October 31, 2011

This is a wonderfful place to stay. The welcome is warm and friendly, the rooms are luxurious and very clean indeed. "Midge" the Innkeeper is a consumate professional as well as being an excellent Chef, so breakfasts are to die for. Nothing is too much trouble for her and if we ever go back to RI, we will certainly stay here again!

Wow, what a find!

5 on October 30, 2011

This place is amazing value for money. The house and the certainly the room we stayed in is beautifully decorated and has a lovely warm vibe. MIdge, the Innkeeper, was very friendly and cooked the most amazing breakfasts to order. It's in a great location, being walking distance to the shops and wharfs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

A perfect stay

4.8 on October 23, 2011

The INN is located centrally between downton area, cliff walk and "The mansions". The room was a dream and the service of Mitch simply perfect. Recommendation: Spend at least 3 nights and enjoy the INN, Newport and do a lot of sightseeing

Nice get away

4.2 on October 17, 2011

The only thing that was an issue was that the AC didn't work on our floor. It wouldn't have been a problem but we had a heat wave. 85 each day we were there. Midge the caretaker was able to give us a fan and it helped a lot. The breakfast was great and the afternoon treats were to die for. Great time and we would go back again.

A pleasure to stay here.

4.6 on October 08, 2011

We received a warm welcome from Midge the housekeeper. Our room was even better than anticipated and breakfast was everthing you could wish for and more. The whole house was light and airy and a pleasure to stay in. Although there was always hot water and coffee available downstairs we would have preferred to have tea making facilities in our room. Overall we rated this B & B as setting a very high standard for the rest of our trip.

Golden Coconut Macaroons

4.8 on October 02, 2011

The only way you will get to try the macaroons is to stay at the La Farge Perry House. Staying here was splendid and Midge attends personally to all guests.

Fantastic stay in Newport!

5 on September 29, 2011

Travelling along the east coast, we had a great time staying at the La Farge Perry House. Not only the rooms but the whole house is wonderfully decorated and taken care of with great care by the innkeeper Midge, who assisted us with many great tips. The breakfasts (around one big table) were a daily highlight, not only because of the excellent food but also because of the nice chats with other guests staying at LFPH. We would recommend La Farge Perry House to anyone staying in Newport.

Always Happy at La Farge Perry House

4.6 on September 25, 2011

This is the second time we've stayed at the La Farge Perry House when we've visited Newport. Both were exceptional B&B experiences (and we've stayed in a lot of B&B's around the country!) and we would absolutely consider it our first choice next time we visit Newport. The room was lovely, the breakfasts were substantial enough for my husband, (who's a big eater!), and the macaroons were awesome! :-)

Another Excellent stay at La Farge Perry House

5 on September 19, 2011

We look forward to our visit each year after we drop our daughter off at college. Great location, great breakfasts and wonderful rooms. Can't wait for our trip next year!

Comfortable and Intimate B&B

3.8 on September 18, 2011

A very nicely refurbished B&B operated by the same people who run The Chanler in Newport, La Farge Perry is an intimate place to stay in a quiet neighborhood that is merely a short walk downhill from the wharf and all the activities and shops downtown. The cleanliness was outstanding and it was nice to come back to every night during our stay. Especially nice was the two-person jacuzzi tub in a large and immaculate bathroom. Compared to other places in town, we thought this was a great value.

La Farge Perry House

5 on September 18, 2011

Our stay was wonderful, food fantastic, innkeeper Midge just lovely friendly and so accommodating. Can't wait to go back and stay again. Loved it!!!!!

The Real Jewel

4.0 on September 14, 2011

There are two jewels at La Farge Perry House. First the house itself is nicely appointed, clean, comfortable and in a great location. However, the real jewel is Midge the innkeeper. She is nice, pleasant, social, accommodating, a great cook and host. She runs the place as if she owned it! And if you are a owner that's exactly the type of person you want. We enjoyed our stay very much and would return in a heartbeat! A true home away from home. Best Regards, Jim & Debbie from La Center, Washington.

Very nice B&B, great location!

3.4 on July 18, 2011

This hotel is very nice, with spacious rooms and beautifull bathrooms. The food is great, and the place is walking distance from everywhere.

Marge is FABULOUS at La Farge Perry House- don't miss her or it in Newport.

5 on July 01, 2011

Everything was perfect. Convenient location, delicious breakfast, and snacks always available, spotless, great information, quiet, and spacious. It had it all.

June 2011

4.0 on June 27, 2011

My boyfriend and I were looking to get away for the weekend and we stumbled upon Newport, RI. We wanted to do something different and chose to stay at a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. That was the best choice we have ever made! The La Farge Perry house was amazing in everyway, we would love to go back. Our room was beautiful and the location was convenient. Even though most of the days we were there were a total washout, we still enjoyed just lounging around in our room and eating the mouthwatering macarons the housekeeper Midge had made. We also purchased the Cliff Walk package which I highly recommend to everyone, for a few more bucks you get two tickets to the breakers mansion and a superb lunch at their sister property. This was simply a great weekend we will never forget thanks to choosing the right place- the La Farge Perry house with a great inn keeper Midge.

La Heaven!

4.8 on June 25, 2011

We recently stayed for three days and wished I never had to leave. We stayed in the master suite and it was amazing! The bathroom alone was bigger then many of the rooms were in other bed and breakfast places we have stayed. Midge was a wonderful host and had excellent ideas for things to do and places to eat. I can't wait until our next stay!!

Fantastic B&B in Newport

5 on June 21, 2011

Fabulous B&B in a fabulous Newport location. Midge made us so welcome that it felt like we were personal guests

Beautiful place to stay in Newport

5 on June 20, 2011

We were lucky to stay in at the La Farge Perry House when we were in Newport for a wedding in early June. Midge was very welcoming and the macarroons are to die for! We stayed in the John La Farge room which was lovely and has a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. The La Farge Perry House is well located - close enough to stroll downtown and just a 20 minute walk to the Cliff Walk. Midge serves a hearty, yummy breakfast (with delish blueberry scones!) We had a really lovely weekend and wish we had been able to stay longer. I highly recommend!

You will not be disappointed.

4.8 on May 20, 2011

We stayed at La Farge Perry House 3 nights the first week of May, the beginning of a 7 day visit to New England. We loved everything about this place, the room, the food, the location, Midge and Jax. Every place we stayed after here was a disappointment. Our first night at another location, my Fiancé said “I miss Midge!” Midge is a perfect hostess; she makes you feel like you are staying with family. Breakfast was phenomenal. I loved the smells coming from the kitchen as we came downstairs each morning. Homemade jams, blueberry muffins, French toast, cheese omelets-mouthwatering! Each room has a small refrigerator with ice bucket and wine glasses so you can enjoy a relaxing evening in your room after a long day of sight seeing. There is a very well stocked liquor store within walking distance. They have a huge selection of wine. Unlike a lot of other bed and breakfasts we have stayed at, La Farge Perry House provides toiletries in each room. They have high quality bath wash, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, q-tips and cotton pads. Good to know if you plan to carry on your luggage. In today’s economy, where every dollar counts, La Farge Perry House is an unbelievable bargain for all the amenities they offer. This is champagne accommodations for a beer budget!

excellent place to stay

4.0 on May 17, 2011

My first stay at a B&B and it was great. I would stay there again.

Wonderful getaway!

Our stay was wonderful - enjoyed the morning breakfast with fresh fruit and made to order breakfast. Rooms were beautiful and cozy. Highly recommend!

Anniversary Stay at The La Farge Perry House

5 on April 20, 2011

My wife and I are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and decided to stay at The La Farge Perry House in Newport, RI the weekend of 4/15 and 4/16. From A to Z, our entire experience at La Farge was exceptional. The innkeeper, Midge, couldn't have been a more gracious and attentive hostess. Her dog, Jax, was also a perfect host. The inn is beautiful and impeccably kept. We stayed in the Oliver Perry Room and it was simply beautiful. It had a real upscale inn feel while having all of the modern conveniences. The morning breakfasts, cooked to order by Midge, were tremendous and the coconut chocolate chip macroons put out every afternoon were delicious. Nightly turn down was also a very nice touch. All in all, our stay at The La Farge Perry House was a real treat and, when we return to Newport, we will be looking to stay there again. Very highly recommended!

Saint Patty's day weekend Newport

Wonderful/Romantic Getaway

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the La Farge Perry House. Our room had a beautiful view and was quite large and very comfortable. Midge's experiences as a chef ensured that our breakfasts were phenomenal each morning. The location of the La Farge Perry House is extremely convenient to either downtown or the cliff walk. We would definitely take the opportunity to stay there again!

Great B&B

4.0 on March 09, 2011

Outstanding service and location for this fine B&B. It was so relaxing that we rushed home from dinner to enjoy the Inn. It is an easy walk to the warf and all of the shops. Very quiet neighborhood area. Will stay here again the next time I visit Newport.

Best Place to Stay

Our stay at the LaFarge Perry House

4.4 on February 28, 2011

Everything, for the most part, was outstanding. The usual inn-keeper was on bed rest, but her stand-in (Macy?) was terrific. She made us feel extremely comfortable and she was quite helpful. The breakfast was delicious, and we had an excellent time. The only complaint was that the jets in the jacuzzi bath in our room didn't work. All things considered, we had an amazing time.

Fantastic Stay at La Farge B&B

La Farge B&B is fantastic! Anything we needed, was taken care of immediatly. Breakfast was great and the staff were wonderful and very helpful. I highly recomend this B&B to everyone.

Christmastime stay

4.6 on December 19, 2010

The La Farge Perry House was tastefully decorated and immaculate. Midge was available to help with restaurant finding and things to do and made us feel very welcome. Her breakfast was delicious and we also loved her macaroons. She even gave us the recipe! We were celebrating my husband's birthday and wanted to see Newport dressed for the Christmas holidays. We would definitely recommend this B&B and plan to return in the future! P&J

Great Getaway

Recently stayed at La Farge Perry House Inn for a one night getaway with my wife. The inn was perfect. Midge was a great host and her homemade muffins, and the breakfast, was fantastic. We stayed midweek in the John La Farge room. Room was clean and comfortable. The only downside with this room is it's on the first floor at the front of the inn so hear people coming and going. Not an issue for us since we were the only guests for our night. We will definitely visit Midge again and recommend the inn highly.

Thank you Midge! We spent our wedding night in this wonderful B&B and it was the perfect end to a spectacular day. Midge is a superb host, going well beyond our expectations. From the afternoon snacks, to the preparation of our room (bed turned back with rose pedals spread about) and through breakfast everything was more than we could have asked for. Our room was phenomenal (Oliver Hazard Perry). The pictures on the website do not do this room justice. We will definitely visit this establishment again and again.

Pictures don't do it justice!!

The minute we walked into the La Farge House, I felt as if I had stepped back in time. We had the John La Farge room and we were in the lap of luxury! The bed was so soft and welcoming while the two-person jacuzzi and over-sized bathroom made us feel like we were in a spa. I only wish I had taken a peek at the other rooms to see if they were as grand as ours. The pictures on this site and their site don't do the house justice. The location was perfect: a minute to the shopping of Bellevue, a few more to the water front, and just up the street from Broadway with some wonderful pubs. We can't wait to stay there again!!!!!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights - 3 superb, never forget nights. The house, Midge and Jax's wonderful aura rub off on all the guests, making it feel like a family reunion. The breakfasts are delicious and made to order by Midge and the afternoon treats, teas and coffee are not to be missed. We had the beautiful, asian influenced Admiral Perry Room on the 3rd floor and the view of the harbor and the boats was incredible. A very special place, cannot wait to retunr this Fall.

Beautiful Inn and Great Breakfast!

Me and my husband stayed here for 1 night for our anniversary and we had the Alicia-Missy Suite which had 2 bedrooms. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I had the french toast for breakfast the next morning and it was delicious. Thanks to Midge for a wonderful stay and the yummy macaroons!!!

LaFarge Perry - Wonderful Stay

Place is beautiful - you feel like you stepped back in time with the decorations as well as the hospitality from Midge who really thinks of everything. We have stayed before & intend on going again!

Dream Honeymoon

5 on December 08, 2008

Staying at the La Farge Perry House made us feel like we were millionaires. The Master Suite was better than advertised. Midge's hospitality and cooking were outstanding. We were within walking distance from everything and the bathroom was as big as the bedroom !!! It was cozy and romantic. It felt like home away from home. We will probably go back every year to celebrate our anniversaries and most likely in between. Gary and Bernice Oberndorf

The best Bed & Breakfast I've ever stayed at

4.8 on November 13, 2008

The rooms are amazing, spacious & very clean. When you walk in you get a warm comfortable feeling. The bed was the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. The bath room was incredible, but the best part of the stay was the service was excellent and the food was to die for.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words. My goal as innkeeper is to make my guests feel "like they are in their home away from home!" Midge and of course, Jaxi!

Lovely Inn

4.0 on October 10, 2008

Lovely Inn, large rooms & common spaces. Beautiful use of flowers, however, ours were not replaced & looked sad by the third day. Rooms were very well appointed, but we did not have control of the temperature & it was either too hot or too cold. Breakfasts were made to order & good but did not change from day to day.

We went to Newport without a reservation and decided to wing it. We stumbled on the La Farge Perry House and so happy we did. Midge was GREAT and her cooking was outstanding. We only stayed one night and wished we had more time time. Keep doing what you are doing- everything was fabulous!
