Recently stayed here for the Jamestown Half Marathon with my friend. We stayed in the twin bed room which was adorable! Made us feel like growing up again. We both made several comments to each other about how immaculately clean the bathroom was. Rusty and Lisa were so nice and welcoming, something you don't often get coming from New York... More

What a nice place this is! Rusty and Lisa are super-nice, everything is immaculate, the beds are extremely comfortable, everything you might want or need - breakfast pastry, fruit and tea all day, books, games, walk to town yet a quiet neighborhood, etc. I really can't think of enough nice things to say. My only concern is that too many... More

We stayed at the guest house last weekend and loved it. Our bed was so comfortable we wanted to stay in it all day! The room (Blue Room) was attractively decorated and featured 3 arm chairs, 2 full bookcases and lots of historic charm. Private bath was super clean with fluffy towels and a tiled shower. Fresh coffee & treats... More

I was in Jamestown for my college roommate's wedding. The Lionel Champlin Guest House was absolutely perfect. The owners were so friendly and helpful. I felt like I was staying with family. The house is beautiful. Great value! The room was perfectly nice. Hot showers, soft towels, and cozy sheets. And maybe a friendly ghost or two. :)

I have greatly enjoyed staying at the Lionel Champlin Guest House. Not only is Jamestown a favorite destination of mine, but the house has a unique New England charm and Lisa and Rusty are exemplary hosts. ¬ I'd be at a loss to think of someone who could cook up a more delicious breakfast. To add to the delight, the... More

This is the way to see Jamestown (and nearby Newport, for that matter). The guest house is conveniently located in the village, a short walk from a number of charming restaurants. It has ample parking and, beyond very pleasant accommodations, has comfortable and inviting common areas. Our host made us feel quite welcomed. It was clear she really cared about... More

We decided in January 2013 that we would attend the Newport Jazz Festival for the first time. Once we investigated accommodations we learned very quickly how expensive Newport was, but in our research we discovered that Jamestown was linked to Newport by ferry and bridge. Knowing if we left the booking of accommodations too late, we might not find anything.... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night on 8/29. We stayed in the Captains room, which was terrific. It has a nice sitting area with a view out to the harbor and a very nice private modern bathroom. The owners Rusty and Lisa were easy to deal with and offered great suggestions for places to eat and bike... More

I am an experienced traveler, and this guest house is a real find. Located on a quiet residential street (yet just a stone's throw from the main street and harbor), the guest house is a pleasant, peaceful getaway.The owners are good people who keep a friendly, yet independent atmosphere. Perfect as a creative retreat or just to relax and recharge... More

We had a wonderful experience here. Beautiful rooms. Rusty (the owner) is warm and kind. Situated right near the Jamestown Ferry means easy access to anywhere you'd like to visit during your stay. Coffee and homemade pastries in the morning were an added bonus. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
