We found this gem via many friends who have stayed here. We were in town to see the mansions over the weekend. We were so pleased at how much staying at the Sarah Kendall House enhanced our weekend experience! The owners, Bryan and Fran were so hospitable. Upon our arrival, Bryan greeted us with a welcoming smile and tales of...

This restored Victorian is beautiful. The accommodations were so comfortable. I loved the fourth floor sun room overlooking the ocean and Newport harbor. The best breakfast I've ever had at a bed and breakfast.

Newport hospitality at its finest!!! Large, delicious breakfasts; comfortable, clean, large beautiful rooms and fun personable innkeepers. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace in our room on chilly evenings. Convenient to town with a stunning view. The innkeeper was extremely knowledgeable about restaurants and the area. A beautiful inn with gorgeous craftsmanship and detail.......we'll definitely be back!!!!

Everything was excellent especially the included fantastic breakfast. Also free internet. Lots of interesting stories from the owner. A great "tower" to go into for a fantastic view with comfortable sitting area.

A beautifully restored Victorian House that has the feel of a family home. The dining room and communal (main) living room are a delight. The living room has a number of books about old Newport, this neighbourhood and the house itself. Our room had a nice fire and came in useful during a cold spell of weather. Breakfast was a...

First off, due to unforseen circumstances we were not able to make it down for our originally scheduled day. I called about a week before hand and spoke to a gentleman who was kind enough to accommodate...

I stayed here during a weekend between 2 heavy work weeks in Connecticut. What a treat it was. Really friendly, hospitable and helpful, with a lovely cosy room at the top of the house and all that Newport has to offer within walking distance. Even classical music on the verandah to come back to at the end of the day....

I took my wife here for an overnight stay for her birthday. This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we were not disappointed. Bryan immediately made us feel like home and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. The room we got had an ocean view and was clean and well furnished. The only thing that wasn't provided was...

Wonderful B&B. From everything to the location to the rooms - it is perfect. The owners are very pleasant and the breakfast spread was absolutely amazing. They really do go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. Minutes away from Thames Street. We will definitely be returning!
