My wife and I spent a lovely weekend in the Isaac Kendall Room during Winter Festival Week.
Rooms are half of the In Season Price at $175 per night. This historic Inn is a short walk from everything, and boasts beautiful views of the harbors as well as a third floor view from the Inn Tower. The breakfast was a little less than I would have expected for such a high standard inn, probably because the oweners were on vacation, and while the house keepers cooking was good, portions were limited and running out of the homemade muffins so that we couldn't even have one on the second day, was disappointing, when on a mini-moon wanting the full indulgence. Overall, a keeper and high recommendation!! ****

Room Tip: Go for the King Bed in the Isaac Kendall Room. Loved it!!!

The Sarah Kendall House is off the beaten path of Thames Street. A five minute walk brings you to the center of Newport's harbor-front. We've stayed here three times and always enjoy going back. The owners have been in the hospitality business a long time and know everything you could want to know about Newport. If you like authentic antiques and traditional Victorian-style accommodations then you will really like the Sarah Kendall House.

If you are looking for a place that has the feeling of home but the comforts of a vacation this is the B&B for you!!! Brian and Fran are sure to remind you if not of your grandparents then most definitively of your favorite aunt and uncle. Brian is a most gracious host concerned by whatever your needs maybe Fran is sure to find a place in your heart with her sassy personality and loved filled cooking, along with stories of the some of the most lovely artifacts the world has to offer. This well traveled couple emerse you in their story as if you yourself were accompanying them on the streets of Europe. The staff is efficient polite and welcoming. the rooms themselves range from cozy and quaint to spacious and roomy. the sun room is a great place to sit back and read a good book with a small sofa rocking and love seat you may also want to have a pleasant conversation with your traveling partner! the porch provides you an ammmmaaazing view of the bridge the boats and the water or if your like me and just like to people watch there is that option. the people in new port love to say hello! the gardens are just so beautiful you thank the gods above you are not the one maintaining them. Fran and Brian think of their guest so much that they leave cookies, nuts, bears, sodas and water out for them through out the day! New to new port dont sweat it brian can tell you anything from what there is to do through out the day ( vineyard tours the mansions cliff walk) to where to go to eat ( 22bowens black pearl or the cookhouse) he is a bundle of useful information. i could not have had a better time then the two times ive stayed at the Sarah Kendall House ( for 4th of july and labor day weekend) each time better than the last! I felt so welcomed as if i was part of the family. If you are looking for that homey feeling with the perks of not lifting a finger the Sarah Kendall House is the place for you!!!!!
***** five stars!!

Thanks so much Brian and Fran!!!

Room Tip: Let brian know what kind of experience you are looking to have and he will do everything in his power to insure its achieved

Great property with view of Newport Harbor from lovely front porch. Home has historic authenticity. However, Inn bedding and pillows lack the plushness and comfortable luxury typically associated with this type of property. Mattresses were old and hard, and pillows equally flat.
