Before booking the Yankee Peddler, I was a little nervous because I read a few negative reviews. I can't understand why anyone would write something negative about this cute, quaint, historic B & B. The location cannot be beat as it's within walking distance to the wharf and waterfront. The rooms were spacious with private bathrooms and very clean. There... More

We only stayed one night in the Yankee Peddler and enjoyed it because of its good location (5 min. walk to harbor and main street), the friendly staff and the size of our room. Decoration was nice, facilities good (albeit a bit older - e.g. the somewhat noisy air conditioning). The breakfast was good - continental but good choice. Overall... More

My wife and I found this B&B venue on the web. It was perfect. Roof Top patio was ideal for evening drinks and views of Narragansett Harbor. Staff & Service was first rate. Walking distance to most attractions, bars, eateries. If any of my friends were to ask for advice on where to stay in Newport, the Yankee Peddler Inn... More

My husband and I just returned from an unexpected overnight stay in Newport, after making an unplanned stop for lunch yesterday. The weather was soooo gorgeous, after my husband rode his bike in the rain for two straight days doing the PMC in Mass., this past weekend, that we decided to enjoy ourselves, the breeze, the view and the sunshine,...

My wife and I stayed here two weeks ago for our 1 year wedding anniversary. We booked it through American Express Travel as it was highly recommended through them. We arrived a few hours early and we given a parking pass for the lot and told we could walk around the town for a bit and come back in a... More

If you're thinking of visiting Newport, this is a good choice. We stayed in the main house and had a lovely time. Excellent location and lots of attention to detail. I especially enjoyed the little basement room for breakfast and cheese and wine in the afternoon.

Thank you for the kind review, Jamie P. I'm so glad you enjoyed our central walkable location and special touches such as Friday/Saturday evening wine & cheese. I hope you discovered the fresh-baked cookies in the afternoons as well! We love doing all we can to create a pleasant, genuine atmosphere with lots of thoughtful touches and conveniences.

And it was not historic....just old, lacked charm. The main house rooms might be okay but there are no real public rooms there other than the basement breakfast room so the bedrooms line the entry hallway and you check in in the back of the house at a small desk near the parking lot in the back. Not a bad... More

Dear California Fussbudget: I'm glad you enjoyed our location and general atmosphere, but I'm sorry the Carriage House was not what you expected. It is indeed more casual in style and furnishings than the Main House, but many guests choose and enjoy it for precisely that reason. Yes, our check-in desk is small (we wish it were bigger!) and situated... More

I recently stayed at The Yankee Peddler Inn in Newport. It was only my second experience with a B & B and I must say, I was not disappointed. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and quaint. It was perfect for me, just outside of the hubbub of the waterfront area but close enough to walk to almost anywhere. The staff... More

Dear Nancy T -- We're so glad you enjoyed your experience at the Yankee Peddler Inn! With 20 guestrooms, we are a bit larger than many/most B&Bs -- that's why we call ourselves an "inn" i.e. small hotel. That's also why our breakfast is continental. We couldn't possibly seat everyone at the same time, so a simpler, self-serve approach with... More

We are touring the area in HD and were therefore looking for a simple and neat hotel. Location is great, beds are perfect, roof terasse for a final drink late evening very welcoming...great place! Breakfast is simple. Hospitality is very welcoming.

We spent two nights at the Inn...Thursday and Friday. It is well situated in the heart of Newport with easy walking access to food and shopping. Our room was right off the reception desk and quite unique. It had two levels...first floor level had a kitchen area, bath, and living area. A set of stairs took you down to the... More

Dear Jim D -- Thank you for all those kind words and insightful descriptions. I wish I could satisfy your suspense regarding the wedding proposal on the rooftop. If it happened, we never heard about it. Perhaps the groom-to-be needed just a little more time ;) I'm glad you enjoyed your accommodations — your room was what we call a... More
