My husband and I stayed here for one night. It was our first time in Newport. The Sarah Kendall House is charming. Bryan is a great host. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was delicious! We will definitely recommend this B& B to our friends.

I travel a lot and most of the time prefer to stay at a bed n breakfast instead of a large hotel. I think I found a bnb that will see me often. The location was ideal, away from the noise and lights of center of town, my room had the most comfortable bed, hot water for a great shower,... More

We received a gift certificate for the Sarah Kendall House and were pleasantly surprised by the care and detail given the accommodations. Our hosts went above and beyond to provide an incredible breakfast each morning, afternoon refreshments, and coffee throughout the day. Our room was quiet, clean, comfortable, and had beautiful views of the ocean. The gas fireplace was a... More

Bryan and Fran were great hosts and very helpful with our first visit to Newport. The Inn is in a great location, walking distance to downtown. Our room was all it was advertised to be. And the breakfast had delicious food and more than we could eat.

I have stayed with Bryan and Fran on two previous occasions and cannot fault the place or hospitality in any way. The rooms are always immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfasts are some of the best I've ever eaten, and always a great chance to chat with fellow guests and Bryan and/or Fran. (A fantastic way to get some... More

We were two pregnant friends looking for a quick and easy weekend getaway - and this was the perfect spot! Nice room with a fireplace and comfy bed and the breakfast was delicious, as were the lemon squares that were offered to us upon arrival. This location is lovely - walking distance to shops/restaurants and the view is beautiful. It's... More

Well my husband and I are not one for reviews, matter of fact this is our first one. We were so pleasantly surprised that we had to compliment the owners and share our experience with others. We truly hate going anywhere that is a "touristy" place... especially in their "off season". The best example I can give is its like... More

we received a gift certificate in Dec 2013 and tried to use it but told it was only good between October and April 2014 so we tried again to use it and told it "expired". The owner challenged me on where I got the gift certificate and was very rude to my wife and myself on the phone when we... More
