We stayed in Victoria's room, and I swear, I woke up a few times just to enjoy how incredibly comfortable I was. Other than that, I heartily second all of the positive comments I've read here. The location is terrific, and Lisa and Randy are the nicest B&B hosts I've had the pleasure of meeting.

Artful Lodger offers everything you are expecting from B&B: nice room, great location close to every Newport attraction; tasty home made breakfast with nice easy conversation and as a bonus a killer view from the top floor terrace. The building is older so this in turn brings some charm into the situation. 2 min walk to the Elms and 8... More

We just returned from two nights at the Arfful Lodger and found it to be a perfect place for our stay. We had our two young granddaughters with us and Lisa and Randy made certain both generations were very comfortable and well looked after. The breakfast area is delightful, bright and cheerful with a great view. Randy made the girls... More

Reminds me why we love to stay in b&b's over hotels. Lisa and Randy were fantastic hosts for my wife and our 2 young children. Our room was spacious and comfortable for the 4 of us. The breakfasts were really excellent but on top of that Lisa and Randy went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They... More

We chose the Artful Lodger back in March because it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. It was the perfect location and innkeepers, Randy and Lisa were delightful. So when we returned in June, we chose the Artful Lodger again. Wonderful accommodations; fabulous breakfasts and again, Lisa and Randy were gracious and welcoming. Feels more like... More

My boyfriend and I decided to do an extended weekend (3 nights, Friday to Monday) and found The Artful Lodger for our Newport destination. We opted to stay in the Rose room, which is a little bit smaller than the others and the private bathroom is right next door, instead of inside like all of the other rooms. Pros: -Lisa... More

My wife and I just spent a night at the The Artful Lodger Inn and we haven't stopped singing its praises. The location is great, just a short walk from all of the shops, restaurants and bars along Thames St...yet it's nestled in a very quiet area that feels miles away from all the hustle and bustle.

The Artful Lodger is immaculate, conveniently located and offers a beautiful view of the harbor from the dining room. Lisa and Randy prepare a delicious breakfast and can answer all of your questions about finding good places to visit and eat. There is a parking lot behind the inn large enough to accommodate all guests even if the 7-room inn... More
