Upon arrival, Jan met us at the door and gave excellent advice on what to see. The room was very nice, clean and a large bathroom. The room also had air conditioning which was a nice extra. Also, the gormet breakfast was quite delicious. The inn was close to the water where all the resturants and entertainment is located. You... More

My boyfriend & I spent the Memorial weekend at John Easton House and that was the best B&B experience we have ever had. I normally would choose hotels over B&B since the service in a hotel is more promising. However, based on the good review of the house, we decided to give it a try and luckily we made a... More

Myself and another couple stayed with Jan at the John Easton House and had a wonderful time. The rooms are large, comfortable, and nicely appointed with antique furnishings. The house is located off Belview with off street parkings and and easy walk to Thames ST. Our stay was very enjoyable and the best thing about the John Easton House, was... More

My husband and I stayed at the John Easton House for our Anniversary. The website shows these beautiful rooms with warm decor. However, the room that we stayed in was the only room that is NOT shown on the website, which we didn't know before booking. The room was dirty and the decor was not appealing. The room had this...

My wife and I stayed here on 6/23/08 & 6/24/08 and we were not impressed. Here are the things we did not like: 1) The room had ants under the couch and along the wall closest to our bed. Some ants also managed to get into our suitcase as we unpacked our suitcases when we got home. 2) The window... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the John Easton House for a long weekend. The location was great - walking distance to the center of Newport and the mansions. The room we stayed in was very nice! Do make sure they turn on the fireplace and give you the remote control as soon as you get there - you'll be... More

We had a lovely stay here which is why I am so surprised by the couple of reviews that are negative about the atmosphere and Jan, she was so helpful and friendly when we were there and I can only imagine that there was some personal circumstance that unfortunately effected her usually happy persona that we saw on our visit....

I recently visited the beautiful town of Newport. It was everything I hoped it would be except..... The atmosphere of the B& B was as cool as the New England Fall Air. I had researched the John Easton House On-Line and felt somewhat fooled. Upon arrival we were met by the home owner and greeted with a bill, rules and... More

24 hour tea consists of tea bags by the water cooler, breakfast was ok. Make sure you ask for remote control for fireplace because you may not be able to use after the maintenence man leaves. Bed was comfortable, although atmosphere was not. Newport is a very nice town.
