The location is perfect. We left our car in their parking lot and walked to view the mansions, and to restaurants. Driving in the tourist area of Newport is a hassle, so this was a real bonus. The room was cozy and romantic. The gas fireplace worked and the jacuzzi was great. We were celebrating our anniversary and couldn't have...

This was the little place we were looking for traveling in New England. The innkeeper Phil knows his home town. In quick conversations he gave us great places to visit and gave us "insider" information about the local shops restaurants and how to get around the streets. I dont know if it was my friend and I but we had...

We arrived late but had been contacted by Phil earlier in the day to assure us we would be able to enter the Inn upon a late arrival. We did not meet Phil that night but met his sister who helps with the Inn. Or room was very clean with an extremely comfortable bed and nice amenities. We arrived early...

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay in "Victoria". The room is located on the first floor at the front of the house. There was street noise during the day, but the area is very quiet at night and we both said the bed was the best we had during our 3 city east coast trip....

My fiance and I had never been to Newport so this was a leap of faith for us. What an impressive stay! Our host went above and beyond...he let us park in the drive, bring our belongings up to our room and just walk about a bit (we showed up 2 hours early). He gave us amazing information on touring...

We got a call from Phil the Innkeeper the day of asking for our time of arrival and if we needed help with directions, we were in Providence the night before and asked for an early check in. The parking lot was available he told us after 11 so come on down and he would try to get the room...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights post Labor Day. The B&B is in a great location as we didn't use our car the entire time we were there. Walking distance to great restaurants and the mansions and cliff walk. The breakfast room was on the top floor with an amazing view and the breakfast meal was unique...

We previously stayed here in April and was unexpectedly upgraded. And this time we stayed in Grace's Room. The room was just right for us and away from busy traffic noise. We did need a couple of things addressed (nothing big) and Phil took care of them ASAP. Phil is first class and really takes the business seriously and I...

My daughter and I stayed her two nights and had a wonderful time. As many reviewers have said the breakfast is not only home-cooked & delicious, but the breakfast room with its view is wonderful! We loved the location near the mansions and were able to walk to several. The bedroom had a sitting area separated by a curtain, which...
