This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and we truly enjoyed it. The innkeepers Lisa and Randy had emailed us ahead of time and gave us tips on restaurants and things to do in the area. The location is great, it's close to the mansions, shops and many restaurants. It was by far, the best breakfast we... More

We just came back from a wonderful overnight stay at the Artful Lodger. It is a great location, within walking distance of everything. We stayed in the room with the balcony and enclosed porch and it was perfect for our needs. The innkeepers, Randy and Lisa, were welcoming and terrific to talk to. Yes, the breakfast is amazing just like... More

We know that prices in Newport are high and this bed and breakfast is expensive as well. But I have to say that the two managers are great, very nice and polite and ready to help in any way they can. Rooms are nice if you like the style but the are a lot smaller than they appear on the... More

The Artful Lodger was a great experience from the moment we arrived. It is perfectly located around all of the attractions and nightlife. The innkeeper's Randy and Lisa took great care of us. The room was cute and cozy. Randy's pancakes were amazing!!!

We had a wonderful time during our recent getaway weekend in Newport, RI. Innkeepers Lisa and Randy did a great job of making us feel special on our 41st Anniversary. We stayed in Room 'B', which we would recommend......it has a nice porch (part enclosed and part open) that was great to relax on. Randy's specialty breakfasts were a big... More

My husband and I attended a wedding this weekend in Newport and we shopped around for a B&B. The wedding party was staying at the Hotel Viking which was above my budget at $350 a night. (Newport is very expensive!!) The Artful Lodger had a room for a bit over $200 a night and included breakfast. (There are more expensive... More

Had a wonderful 2 night stay in mid-May. Innkeepers Lisa and Randy were the best. Third floor breakfast room had beautiful views of the harbor. Delicious breakfasts were a perfect way to start the day. Great location around the corner from the Elms.

We just got back from a restful weekend at the Artful Lodger. Lisa and Randy were fantastic hosts. They served us a gourmet breakfast (better than anything we would ever have had out) that kept us going until dinner both days and they proved to be quite the authority on local area attractions. Our 2nd floor suite accommodations were very... More
