We all had such a wonderful time at the Lionel Champlin, even with one rainy day. This inn is perfectly located for walking the town and along the water, with charming but unobtrusive hosts and beautiful rooms. We were an extended family so required five rooms for two nights, and Lisa did a great job figuring out who should best... More

This place was a good find. Our original plan was to spend a couple of nights in Newport, but the hotels there are very pricey. Jamestown is great alternative - easy access to Newport, but quieter - more relaxed. This place was just like the pictures. We loved our room (the Rose Room). Nice baked goods and coffee in the...

I have only great things to say about this place. Usually I write my reviews all at once each month but I had to get going on this one early. I stayed for a few nights in July in the 'Blue Room,' traveling alone. Where to start? The beauty of this house alone was enough to make it a 5-star... More

We spent three nights in the Rose Room, which is generously sized and very comfortable. The pleasant guest house is made even better by its location, just around the corner from East Ferry and Narragansett Ave, the heart of Jamestown village, so we were very short walks from restaurants and the waterfront. The guest house is very clear about this... More

we decided to attend the Volvo Ocean race activities in Newport....and were a little concerned about the traffic, the parking, the access, proximity of accommodations....Lisa and Rusty at The Lionel Champlin Guest House was the ideal solution...we accessed Newport/Fort Adams by water taxi and did Newport by day ( walks, museams, boats, piers, shops and happy hours) and enjoyed Jamestown...

About a year ago we were forced out of our house by a failed heating system which resulted in soot everywhere. Lisa and Rusty took us in; we stayed in the Rose Room for over 6 weeks while cleanup and repairs were being made to our house. The stay was so special and took our mind off the dismal condition...

Stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and loved it. The owners, Lisa and Rusty, are very warm and welcoming. Although we weren't able to make it in until late (2AM) the first night, the two of them made sure we would be able to find our room easily and left the light on for us. It is not a proper... More

This was the most comfortable stay imaginable. Owners Rusty and Lisa are enormously hospitable and helpful. My husband and I stayed in the Twin Room, with lovely view of the waterfront. The room was clean and comfy. Lisa’s breakfast offerings are delicious: a homemade bread, yogurt, some fruit, coffee and tea. It’s an intentionally light breakfast; if you want more,... More

Our daughter just got married in Jamestown on Saturday and we stayed at here for the weekend. The rooms were decorated nicely, they were clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room did not have air conditioning but the window fan was perfect, brought in the cool outside air. Rusty and Lisa were very nice always asking checking to see... More
