5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and I own a bed and breakfast in Atlanta Georgia, so we are tougher than the normal visitor or maybe the most understanding. Well the owners could not be any nicer and more enthusiastic regarding someone staying with them for the first time. My husband and I looked at each other and said " I hope we have... More

We enjoyed a peaceful weekend, just far enough (walk-able) from downtown . Our accommodations were like being home, our own private little apartment offering everything you could ask for.The welcoming front porch and stunning gardens enhanced our experience. Fran and Bryan are perfect innkeepers, kind and considerate. We are anxious to return on our next Newport visit.

We called to reserve a room from a recommendation and asked about the cancellation policy. The owner, Fran, simply stated to us that there was a 14 day cancellation policy which we were fine with. The rate was $425 and a little higher than we were looking for and when we found a more reasonable rate of $325 a day... More

Needless to say I have no response to this rave! Clearly stated on our web site and conformation there is a cancellation fee for just that reason. People shop around blocking out the room for someone who really wants a room and then when they find the best " DEAL" they cancel the previous more expensive room. I would dispute... More

My friend and I had no idea what to expect from Newport RI or the Sarah Kendall house. We drove from Maine down to Newport, and stayed overnight as sort of a layover on our way home to PA. This home, and the town that has been revitalized around it, is full of history and beauty everywhere you look. The... More

Cannot say enough great things about Sarah Kendall House. We stayed there in the fall and returned again this week, 06/30 - 07/01, to another great experience. The house is beautiful and meticulously kept, and our room spacious, well lit, and very clean. The breakfast is amazing; everything is cooked to order although there’s so much already out, fresh fruit,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. When we arrived for check in we were warmly greeted by the owners Bryan and Fran. Bryan then took us on a tour and told us all about the history of the property. We were treated this way our entire stay. We loved the porch as it has great views and it... More

Our stay at the Sarah Kendall House was nothing short of exceptional. My husband surprised me for my birthday with a weekend stay here. He knows how much I love Victorians and he couldn't have picked a better place. Old world charm with modern day amenities. From the moment we arrived, it felt like home. We were greeted with warmth... More

We had three nights in early June and despite cool and often wet weather our time at Sarah Kendall house was lovely. The B&B is just like the photos and Brryan is a wonderful host. Breakfasts were good and plentiful. Newport harbour, shops and restaurants are just a few minutes walk, yet the house was peaceful. A good pick for... More

We stayed at The Sarah Kendall House with our dear friends for two nights, May 27th to The 29th. We were immediately greeted by Fran, one of the owners who made us feel right at home and asked us if we needed anything during our stay. The home is just beautiful with history filled antiques and gorgeous flower filled gardens.... More

B&B was outstanding. Owners were welcoming, friendly, courteous, and helpful in many ways. Upon arrival, the owners gave us a tour of the home and pointed out many of the special antiques, relics, and family treasures. They went out of their way to make our stay great.
