A Wonderful stay in Newport!

This was our first time to Newport, first time to Jazz Festival and first time at Garden View. We will definitely be back!! We were so lucky to find Garden View and Mary! The house is wonderful with all sorts of beautiful and interesting things to see and a gorgeous garden right outside our bedroom door! Mary is a joy to talk to and prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning-we felt like royalty! The location was perfect for the festival and the garden was so nice to start the day and to unwind at the end.

Such a lovely stay!!

Mary was absolutely the most gracious hostess! The room was beautiful, comfortable, impeccably clean, and lovely. The breakfast was so delicious and the fresh squeezed OJ was amazing. Thank you for sharing your hone Mary... we will be back. Toni Schmidt

My husband and I went for a get away weekend and found Mary to be so warm and inviting, and her place is clean and comfortable and beautiful! Her breakfast is delicious and she puts her all into making you feel at home. The location is wonderful....close to things yet quiet. We highly recommend it!

Look no further for the perfect bed & Breakfast in Newport!

The Sun-Lit suite is lovely, roomy, airy and completely private - the breeze blowing through the windows and stirring the music of the trees and windchimes outside made it magical! It's far enough off the beaten track to be quiet, yet close enough to walk to the waterfront dining and shopping district - a great combination. Mary is so friendly and welcoming! Her breakfasts were wonderful and because she is a Newport native, she can tell you anything you want to know and where to find anything you need in the area. She was also able to offer us a special deal on tickets to tour the mansions, and we were happy to take advantage. We would stay in the Sun-Lit suite anytime - but since we won't be back for quite awhile, I suggest that you avail yourselves of the Gardenview's many amernities. You will be glad you did!

Perfect Getaway

The Gardenview B & B is a wonderful specialty-antique decorated home located within easy walking distance to the famous and busy Thames Street of Newport, RI. The home itself is located within a clean safe neighborhood that seems to thrive on beauty, peace, and quiet. Outside, there is a garden with a complex variety of plants and bushes that surround a small patio and fish pond that by day or night breathes out a natural tranquility. Inside, there are only two rental rooms, each with convenient off-street parking; and thus, privacy, convenience, personal attention, and complete isolation from life’s tangled throngs are essentially guaranteed. Both the home and the rooms are very clean, neat, and air-conditioned, with all of the other needed essentials that taken together, create a welcome-home feeling as soon as you walk in. The setting is ideal for individuals, couples, or friends needing and wanting not only time alone, but also convenient accessibility to all that Newport RI has to offer. Mrs. Mary Fitzgerald owns and runs the Gardenview B & B. She is completely wonderful; she is the type that you like immediately as a friend and respect as a person. She is clean, neat, attentive, responsible, flexible, friendly, helpful, area-knowledgeable, and a fabulous cook. You miss her when you leave.

A wonderful place to stay

My husband and I recently enjoyed our second stay at Gardenview and plan to return. The location is great - near the village, mansions and beach. The rooms are elegant yet comfortable. The innkeeper makes you feel like family. Breakfasts are amazing!

Great cozy spot at a great value

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Sun-Lit room for a long weekend. It was an amazing place, very clean, cozy surrounding that made us feel more at home than any hotel would have. It was a shorter walk to downtown than we thought so we loved staying here. I highly recommend Gardenview to anybody.
