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. Our room was... More

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

Stay for my wife's birthday and ordered the sparkling wine, chocolate and roses. They were already in the room when we arrived. Lisa was friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and well maintained. Breakfast was amazing! It is a close walk to restaurants and night life. Newport is a wonderful place and staying at The Artful Lodger made our first... More

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
