The innkeeper's hospitality and flexibility made my mini-vacation a wonderful and relaxing time. I loved sitting on the porch and doing my morning reading while sipping on coffee. The rooms were perfect and the breakfasts were fabulous - especially the blueberry pancakes! Enough food to last through dinner - muffins fruit, eggs, waffles, pancakes, sausage, bacon. (I don't usually allow... More

On the plus side: The location is great - walking distance to everything in Newport - the harbor, restaurants, mansion tours etc. Denise and Wayne are lovely, and make a great breakfast! On the negative side: It can be pretty loud in the evenings (the weekends at least) as it is really close to a few bars. The beds were... More

My wife and I chose Fair Street for our first trip to Newport. We loved how the B & B was situated right in town, so we were able to walk to pretty much everything downtown. The Mansions were only a 5 minute ride away, thru the back parking lot you were a minute away from the best ice cream/... More

I have been staying at the Fair Street Guest House since it opened! Denise and Wayne, the innkeepers, are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I usually come for a girlfriends weekend getaway, but have visited with my husband before. You cannot beat the location, as it is behind the Red Parrot and centrally located to all the shops, restaurants, and nightlife.... More

I live in NYC and come to Newport every summer, usually around the 4th of July. I've stayed at a few places over the years (because I didn't book Fair Street early enough), and the Fair Street Guest House is hands down the best place in Newport. It is perfectly located just blocks from everything. Denise and Wayne run everything... More

I have stayed at Fair Street Guest House four times, and this July I will stay there a fifth. Wayne & Denise are the perfect hosts. They save the same room for me year after year and are very accommodating. The central location is perfect and is within walking distance of all the attractions I visit. I love St. Mary's... More

Denise and Wayne are the most accomodating hosts you will find, and would give them 6 stars if possible! We have stayed with them for several years, and have never look elsewhere. We enjoy all their recommendations for restaurants, bars, beaches, etc etc.....They are spot on! The rooms are clean, bright, quiet and quite comfortable. Breakfast in the morning is... More

We were planning a trip to Newport for later this month and tried to get in touch with the proprietor of this property, leaving two voice mail messages and an email. All of our attempts were met with no response. An email message stating "I will get in touch with you tomorrow" turned out to be another dead end. As... More

In April enjoyed a wonderful stay at 28 Fair St. We were lucky enough to book 28 Fair St. for our group of eight friends and can't say enough about the hospitality we were given by Denise while we were there! Great rooms, a warm home and nice breakfast were just part of the experience. Denise was on spot with... More

Great place with a great location. Denise was very hospitable and accommodating. Perfect central location to walk to most Newport attractions. Short walk to excellent restaurants and shopping. I will stay there again.
