We stayed a long weekend in Dec. and had a great time in Bristol and Newport. John, the inn manager was awesome. Very friendly and helpful with restaurants (food was awesome in Bristol.) and other things to do and see! A very nice find....especially off season.

Traditional New England Charm and Southern hospitality rolled into one establishment. William’s Grant Inn in delightful Bristol is steeped in historical charm, complete with owner’s linage dating back to the Mayflower’s landing in Plymouth. During the snow season proprietors Warren and his wife visit family down-under in New Zealand for several months, leaving the Inn in the highly capable hands... More

Bristol is a charming town with a wonderful bike path, so we decided to stay overnight. This "inn" in the center of town is a convenient location but it is barely a B&B let alone an inn. There are only 5 guest rooms crammed into this small house. The only common area is a small parlor which is inadequate for... More

Bristol RI is a delightful community located on the water. Colt State Park is a wonderful spot for a bike ride or walk. There are many great restaurants including Redlefsen's for German food and the Lobster Pot for seafood. William's Grant Inn is an old sea captain's home that provides a convenient welcoming respite. The breakfast is home made. My... More

We had a lovely stay in Bristol, RI. The room was quaint bedroom with nice amenities of fresh baked cookies and homemade soap. The bed was comfortable after our long day of traveling. The Inn Keeper was very knowledgeable of the area and loved sharing the history of the time period as well as the house history. The backyard was... More

This is a fantastic B&B in the Newport/Bristol area. Warren and Diane are a delight and the run a tight ship. Everything was well considered, comfortable, and welcoming. The room was cozy and quiet, the breakfasts were good and happily accommodated dietary restrictions. It was a great experience, and I would recommend the William's Grant Inn without any hesitation. They... More

I had the pleasure of spending a night's stay here in the Blithewold Room, which was decorated in a country/victorian fashion. Some of the aspects of the room that I enjoyed were: 1. Homemade chocolate chip cookies. 2. Tea supplies in room. 3. Handmade soap. 4. Very comfortable bed. 5. Clean and fresh linen. 6. Soft thick towels. The room... More

My husband and I just returned from an overnight stay at this bed and breakfast. We found the place to be cozy and charming and we had a pleasant stay. Our room was upstairs and it was clean with a comfortable bed. The hosts, Diane and Warren, were gracious and friendly and we enjoyed talking with them. Breakfast was delicious... More

Lovely room, gracious hosts, nice quiet convenient location. Breakfast was perfect. Great neighborhood for long walks enjoying all the historic buildings. We'd enjoy staying there again on our next trip to RI.

Warren & Diane Poehler make every guest feel special, with genuine interest in what they would like to do while guests in their area. Their own international experience in many countries means they share interesting vignettes for those who would like to linger over a scrumptious breakfast.
