We stayed for 3 nights in September and were very pleased. We visit Newport once a year this time of the year. We have stayed at several different bed and breakfasts, and next year we'll stay here again. We enjoyed the inn very much. Patrick was great, as was the food. This is the furthest away from the wharf we have stayed, and it was actually nice. Broadway is close with many great restaurants, and the wharf isn't a very distant walk. Staying here allowed us to move around easier for trips by car, and was quieter in the evening as the street has very little traffic, especially compared to staying along Spring Street which stays busy through the evening. Patrick made check in/out very easy and gave us great dining recommendations. Parking was easy, again very different than it is along the wharf area. It's a very easy shot over to the cliff walk and First Beach. Overall a great stay!

Stayed for one night during the season (which was already generous since it was summer). Their inn is very cute and super clean and nice. Felt very comfortable in our room, and got to peek in on the other. Bed was super comfortable, and loved the little sitting area in our room. We also had access to the lounge with coffee, teas, and a stereo system (and fireplace). Valerie was hospitable and made us a lovely breakfast in the morning. She also had great recommendations of local places, as well as was nice enough to loan us her beach chairs! If you are looking for a clean place that is quiet and away from the hustle bustle of it all, check this out. Also was a TERRIFIC value.

"Val's Blueberry Muffins"
Valerie, my dear spouse who passed away December 30, 2016, had prepared for guests her delicious blueberry muffins for the past 18 years which were quite frequently asked for by returning guests! She did pass on her secret recipe and we will do our best to replicate the scrumptious muffins from time to time - no guarantees on how delicious they'll be!!!
