La Farge Perry House

24 Kay Street , Newport, RI 2840 USA (Show map)


Located at the top of Newport's posh Hill, La Farge Perry House has a perfect location, within walking distance to all of the major attractions, yet far enough away from the active nightspots to provide a restful atmosphere for those that wish to relax. A full breakfast is served in a beautiful dining room where you are surrounded by scenes of Newport on a mural original to the house painted in 1900. With handmade linens and 300 thread count sheets, the rooms have extraordinary comfort; many with small sitting areas and most having either a single or double jacuzzi bath tubs. The local knowledge of Jennifer, the innkeeper, will help you with answers to any questions about the inn, Newport "hot spots" - for dining, dancing and live music.

Fall Foliage Trip

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 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

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.

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

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

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.

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...!
