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.

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

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

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

The Yankee Peddlar Inn is an old colonial style house in the historic district of Newport, just a short stroll from the town and quayside. It has a free car park for about a dozen cars. Our ground floor room, obviously originally one of the main reception rooms, was beautifully furnished and decorated in period style. The two large double... More

Thank you, Peter H, for your thoughtful review. The Yankee Peddler Inn is indeed an historic home (circa 1835) that was converted to an inn with 15 guestrooms in the 1950s. The adjacent Carriage House was converted later, so today we offer 20 rooms in all. And each one is different! For that reason, we always recommend that people call... More

We were very happy with our stay overnight. We stayed in the main house and it was filled with charming period furniture which gave an atmosphere of Newport Inns of the era. The manager was very welcoming and full of good information about restaurants in the area and of the Newport Mansions location. The beds were comfortable,the room and bathroom... More

We went here for the Memorial Day Weekend, and had a wonderful stay. They allowed us to check in early, offered us coffee, tea and cookies and had bottled water waiting in the room.

We stayed here early May 2014. We were in the coach house which it adjacent to the main building. It is very clean and furnished with period furniture. The staff are most helpful and friendly. It is very close to the harbour and major shops/restaurants. We would stay here again. Well worth a visit.

Dear LindaEastYorkshire, I'm so glad you enjoyed your clean, comfortable room in the Carriage House. That is where our most "economical" rooms are located, but for many guests they are exactly right. The furnishings and atmosphere may be a touch less historic than the Main House, but there are nice aspects to being situated separately, in a slightly more cottage-like... More

OK, it's not famous mansions of Newport, but it evokes the flavor of the colonial aspect of the city. Everyone working at Yankee Peddler told us she loved working there, and it showed. Room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful, and afternoon teas and cookies a great afternoon treat. Free parking available and close to town.

Dear jackal51 -- I assume a letter is missing and that was supposed to say "Flavor of Newport" -- thank you for the compliment! We're so happy we could provide that feeling of authenticity for you. The Yankee Peddler is indeed a larger 19th-century home in the central Newport neighborhood known as Historic Hill, but it's certainly not a mansion!... More
