A beautiful inn, in a wonderful location. Walkable to downtown and to the mansions and Tennis Hall of Fame, as well as some great restaurants. The view from the 3rd floor dining room is stunning...and breakfast itself was delicious. Phil was so friendly and helpful...and makes the best biscotti I've ever had! Couldn't stop eating them! Definitely going back.

The Inn is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. It was not very busy on Easter Sunday night, so our gracious host Phil upgraded us to a suite. It was a large beautifully decorated room with a king bed, an extra futon, a little sitting area with chairs, and a jacuzzi tub. Absolutely gorgeous and cozy. The next morning,...

We planned a last minute trip to Newport and stumbled upon the Artful Lodger and are glad we did. We stayed in a suite on the second floor and it was huge and very comfortable. Phil made a great breakfast to order in the morning for each each guest along with terrific homemade muffins. We will be back

A really fantastic hotel perfectly positioned to explore Newport centre and it's historic sights. Phil offers a warm welcome and large, well equipped rooms. But by far the hotels biggest attraction is all the little details and extras that made our stay special. Phil is also a mine of local knowledge and was a real help in guiding us to...

We had a king bedroom on the first floor. It was comfortable. The breakfast varied from eggs to waffles and French toast. There was a great view of Newport from the breakfast room. The host was helpful in planning our tours of the mansions. The Elms is very near, within an easy walk. He suggested we start there and we...

My husband and I stayed at the Artful Lodger for two nights in Victoria's Room. It was exactly what we needed - the bed was comfortable, the room was private despite being on the first floor, and it the location was perfect to walking all over downtown. Phil cooked two tremendous breakfasts on the mornings we were there and the...

My husband and I had a very warm and cozy stay at the Artful Lodger Inn this past week. While we stayed in a truly early American venue, all the modern conveniences including a gas fireplace made things easy and relaxing. Our space was especially nice due to a small enclosed porch off to the side of the bedroom. There...

After researching and reading reviews for several Newport bed and breakfasts, my husband and I chose The Artful Lodger for its centralized location to Bellvue Ave/Mansions/Cliffwalk and the many restaurants on Thames. We found that it was also an incredible value for the time we visited. Everything is literally walking distance! No need for the car especially on a nice...

This was our first experience staying in a B&B. We love Newport and decided to give it a go. The Artful Lodger was very clean, quiet and had a homey feel to it. We chatted and met several other guests while sitting in the parlor sipping our complementary coffee and biscotti. Phil was a great host and very discrete. I...
