Lovely B&B. Relaxed owners. Convenient location.

4.2 on August 16, 2016

Captain's room is outstanding and, with a beautiful view of Newport Bridge, worth the extra cost. Rusty was kind & easy going & Olivia took good care of us. Bc is was oppressively hot out, we called to see if we could check in earlier & were easily accommodated - the room AC blasting when we arrived. If you like a relaxed atmosphere that is tastefully decorated & home like feel that is immaculately clean, LCGH is it. Sorry we could only stay one night!

Ferry to Newport!

The best part is the location. While reading about what to do in Newport, I learned there is a ferry from Jamestown to Newport. I checked the map and couldn't believe that the ferry is about 1 block away from the B&B! It was perfect - and fun- to take the ferry to Newport. Rusty has discount tickets available. Jamestown is a great little town with good restaurants within walking distance. There are lots of magazines to read, daily newspapers, tea available in the evenings, fresh fruit each morning, large rooms, pretty and very clean bathrooms, nice linens. Very comfortable and relaxing.

The Perfect Inn!

We had a wedding to go to the weekend of May 31 and decided we would turn it into a weekend get away! Our time spent at the Lionel Chaplain Guest house was delightful! We stayed in the Captain's room and loved the cozy open feel of it!! The location of the Inn could not be beat as we were near all the hot spots and view of the bridge into Newport and just a short drive away! We would recommend this Inn to any friend and family!

Family Wedding

4.8 on June 24, 2013

Just spent 3 nights there while in Jamestown for a family wedding. Our accommodations were wonderful, and our hosts were quietly solicitous. Every time we wanted something a little extra, it showed up almost before we asked for it. Location was perfect. We could walk to restaurants, shopping, and waterfront attractions.

Just returned from our second visit to the Lionel Champlin Guest House. LOVED it. The rooms were spotless. The continental breakfast was very good and the inn keepers were great! I would recommend this inn to all. Jamestown is lovely, we had a great time. F De Sevo, Spring Lake, New Jersey
