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

I was also part of the recent "takeover" of this inn over the St Patrick's Parade weekend. What a great weekend we all had at the Artful Lodger! Our accommodations were very comfortable and the innkeepers, Lisa and Randy, were so gracious and welcoming that it really felt like it became our home for the weekend. The breakfasts were fabulous... More

Had another great St. Paddy's Day birthday weekend at the Artful Lodger. This was the second year my girl and I stayed here for St. Paddy's Day and had another couple join us, as Newport is a great town to celebrate and they throw an awesome parade.

My Boyfriend and I, his family and some friends took over this inn for St. Patrick's Day weekend to celebrate a 60th birthday. We stayed here last year with different inn keepers and were impressed.

Lovely place to stay. The Inn keepers were so friendly and accommodating! The Inn has a charming antique setting. Close to all the Mansions and shopping. They serve a wonderful breakfast in the upstairs dining area with a wonderful view.
