The house was very elegant - the rooms, furniture, decorations, paintings, etc. Quaint, but not creepy. We stayed in the top floor and got a nice harbor view, actually the house is just a few steps from the port, the view of which is absolutely breath-taking, days or night, with the tranquil sea, and the extending bridge, so beautiful.

Had a fabulous night away from home staying in the Tower Room. Nice king size bed, awesome gas fireplace, convenient terry robes in the wardrobe and a 10 minute walk into downtown shopping and restaurants. Innkeepers Bryan, Fran and their Inn helper Mary made us feel very comfortable and at home. Yummy breakfast in the morning with made to order... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for our anniversary. Could not have picked a better place! The house is a beautiful old Victorian style house located in a very convenient area of Newport (~10 minute walk to Thames Street). The owner Bryan greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a lovely history of the house, as well as offering suggestions... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed in a getaway room on the third floor with a separate entrance from the main house, Our room was charming with its own gas fireplace and beautiful carved sleigh bed. That the B&B is so close to the visitor's center is a major plus, easy to catch the trolley tour, and within... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Sarah Kendall House. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast so we were a little guarded in terms of what to expect. Upon our arrival, Brian, who proved to be an excellent host, greeted us. Bryan took us on a quick tour and provided us with a brief history of the... More

The Sarah Kendall house is amazing. My husband and i snuck away for a 2 day trip and stayed here...we had never been to a Bed and breakfast before, but was blown away with the level of care, and attention to detail the staff took. The owners every morning had the most amazing breakfast set up-we ate on fine china... More

This is a wonderful hotel in a perfect spot in Newport. The log fires and hot baths in the winter are the icing on the cake to a wonderfully comfortable bed and breakfast with lush fixtures and fittings. You feel like you are stepping back in time in the ornate lounge and the breakfast is the BEST I have ever... More

I recently had my first stay at the SKH and it won't be my last! A beautiful Victorian house that you feel like you were at home. The Isaac Kendall room was quite spacious with a lovely view of the water. Great location to walk to downtown. The breakfast each morning was delicious and Fran's baked goods that were in... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Tower Suite very much. It's entrance was around the side of the main house and up a few flights. The room was beautiful with a partial view of the ocean which was across the street. The gas fireplace was perfect for the cold winter night. The king sized bed was ok, nothing to rave... More

I've been vacationing in Newport for over 20 years and not once in my years of staying at the SKH have they ever missed a beat. I can get closer to town, I can save 20-35 bucks a night by staying at another BNB but I choose not to. I like my walks into town, I like the quiet street... More
