I stayed two nights at this lovely B and B just a twenty minute walk to downtown and a quick drive to all the sights. Josie's breakfasts can't be beat with fresh fruit, frittata, fluffy pancakes and perfect coffee all served piping hot. I didn't need lunch after such a spread! The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, bright... More

I stay at Josie's every time I go to Newport and her hospitality is truly amazing. Her breakfasts are a joy to behold and her scramble eggs were delicious along with the Fritata which is her house specialty. The porches are perfect to enjoy the sunset and have a chat, with Josie often joining in to make you feel right... More

Stayed here for the Newport Folk Fest. Josie's warmth and cooking made us feel as though we were staying with family in her clean, lovely home with a super comfy bed! So glad we chose to stay with Josie!

I stayed at Josie's Bed & Breakfast last weekend with my husband and 11-year-old son. The location was easy to find and within walking distance of the downtown area as well as the beach and the Cliff Walk/mansion district. Josie was extremely accommodating and made arrangements for us to be able to get inside despite our late arrival. There is... More

We stayed here for two nights in late August 2013 and loved it. Our room was the entire 3rd floor of the house with a private bathroom & mini fridge so was very private & quiet. There was free parking in front & back of the house & also free WIFI which was great. Everything was very comfortable and clean... More

We've stayed with Josie twice for weekends of the Newport Jazz Festival and have been really pleased both times! The house is comfortable and immaculate, breakfast is yummy! And the price is always reasonable, unlike most B&B's in Newport at festival time. Josie was very accommodating of our needing vegetarian food only for breakfast, as well as being happy to... More

I went to Newport in September 2011 for a friend's wedding. Josie's was an affordable and welcoming option. I was a little hesitant at first, seeing as how there's no way to book a room online with a credit card (I had to mail her a check to hold my room), but I was very pleased with the house and...
