I stayed here for a couple of nights while attending 2013 Newport annual Bucket Regatta. Location is excellent. Easy to find on a quiet street but close to the main action of the town. Lovely place surrounded by flowers. The house is old-style charm, exactly what you expect from the Rhode Island B&B. Flowery old-fashioned wallpaper and bedding, slightly squeaky... More

We stayed at this property for one night in June 2014. The first thing that I would like to mention is that there are actually two buildings under the same management located next to each other. I made the reservation for Fair Street Guesthouse but was given a room at the Fair Street Inn. I am not sure if there... More

Went for an overnighter in Newport. Loved the location of the inn. The room was great...much bigger than anticipated. The bathroom was a nice size also. Excellent shower and bath gels. Breakfast was perfect. Loved sitting outside sipping my morning coffee watching the town wake up.

The rooms are well kept although the shower was a wee bit small. The breakfast was very good and the owner very friendly. We would definately stay here again. The location is very central and perect as a base for exploring a fantastic area.

This was a great place to stay. The location is amazing! Less than 5 min walk to the water and in the middle of great shops and restaurants but on a side street so it's quiet at night. The rooms were clean and a good size and Denise was very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended.

My first experience with a B&B could not have been placed in better hands. The room was cozy and clean, and the overall facilities were well kept reflecting upon the historic age of the structure. Attention to details and upkeep are routine and punctual. Felt like being part of one big family. The location in downtown, historic Newport was very... More

Perfect location, walk to anywhere in town. Clean room, great value for price. Very pretty historical home. Denise was so helpful with tips about the neighborhood. Woke up each morning to the smell of breakfast cooking.... she made the best eggs:) Like staying at a friend's house.

If you have the chance to stay here when you come to Newport, you should. It's a real gem of a place. The B&B consists of two houses dating back to the late 19th century, and furnished with a range of fabulous period pieces. We stayed in the ground floor at No 20, and our room is accessed via a...

I absolutely loved Fair Street Guest House. Having never been to a Bed and Breakfast before, I was a little worried about the accommodations, privacy, and comfort. I was pleasantly surprised with how amazing it was and cannot believe I haven't come here sooner! I was greeted warmly by Denise and showed to our room- very private and could not... More

On our first visit to Newport we decided to try a B&B rather than a hotel because, unless we chose a very, very expensive place, most of the hotel reviews were mixed at best. Fair Street Guesthouse was reasonably-priced with good reviews, and the location could hardly have been better. It's walking distance to the Newport wharf area and restaurants... More
