I surprised my wife with a getaway for the weekend for her birthday and stayed at the Sarah Kendall House room 1. We were blown away. The house is very well maintained and has such a caring, loving feel to it. The grounds are immaculate. Bryan and Fran are absolutely the best!! We spent hours on the front porch with... More

Bryan and Fran are the genuine and down to earth owners of the Sarah Kendal House. My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay. Bryan offered a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Bed & Breakfast, the area and suggested several quality restaurants. The Sarah Kendall house was well appointed with a clear taste for details. Our room... More

We just spent 2 nights at the Sarah Kendall house and had a wonderful experience. We loved the location with views of the harbor and an easy walk to downtown. The innkeeper, Bryan, was full of history about the house and town itself which we found very interesting. The gardens are gorgeous and we loved sitting on the front porch... More

We spent 4 nights at the Sarah Kendall House and so enjoyed our stay. Bryan and Fran were very gracious and generous hosts, and the location can't be beat. It's a couple of blocks from the main area of town not to mention a great home-cooked breakfast. If we go back to Newport, we would stay here again and would... More

We just spent 4 days at this Inn. Great spot, nice quiet serene neighborhood with an easy walk into downtown. Bryan and Fran are very good about the details..always coffee on the front porch in the morning, then switching to a cooler in the afternoon for other refreshments. coming back late at night with candle lanterns lit through the garden.....

My wife and I stayed here for only one night. The Inn is charming and quaint. Rooms are very nice and spacious. The Inn is very convenient to downtown Newport.The breakfast was outstanding. The only reason I don't give it five stars is that the owner is not shy about sharing his views of the world and his politics. If... More

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at the Sarah Kendall House. As soon as we arrived, Bryan gave us a tour and told us a brief history of the house. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Parking was easy. The location is great as it is a short walk to anywhere in Newport. The owners were... More

Gorgeous. Spotless. Elegant. Historical. Comfortable. Relaxing. A great price. A great location. Mary: The other reviews referred to a young lady in her 20's. This is Mary, she is the one employee of the owners Fran and Bryan. Yes, she is young. She is also kind, sincere, incredibly helpful, welcoming, and friendly. She puts on the breakfasts, cleans the rooms,... More
