I have stayed at over 30 B&B's and this is one of my favorites. First, location - it is 3 blocks from downtown Newport and an easy 10 minute walk. It is in a quiet neighborhood. You would never know you were so close to the downtown. Second, accommodations -We stayed in the Issac Kendall room. It is a very... More

This is just the type of place I like to stay at when I come to Newport. A historical home loaded with charm and character! The exterior is beautiful and the flowered grounds are well kept. Inside is gorgeous! From the antique lighting to the unique wood floors, it was all eye catching. The room was quite spacious, about 20... More

(Well overdue review). My husband and I stay at Sarah Kendall House Oct 2014. Fran greeted us and upgraded our room (for free, Isaac Room) upon arrival (a nice fellow Clevelander!). Brian enjoyable to chat with during breakfast. He even provided, including sending with us home, some of his great bagels. Good location as we were able to walk to... More

Stayed in a great B&B the Sarah Kendall House this weekend with my boyfriend. The house was lovely inside and out. Our room was spacious and filled with beautiful antique furniture Best of which was a very comfortable large poster bed. We also had Cable, Wi-Fi, AC, and a mini fridge for our modern-day Comforts. The breakfast table was both... More

Top of the line hotel amenities, yet a feel of exclusivity. The room was comfortable and spacious with great WiFi connection and cable. Brian and Fran, owners of the B&B, are delightful and accommodating, with a wealth of knowledge of Newport history. Breakfast was outstanding--nice fluffy Belgian waffles with bacon was a great way to start the morning. If that's... More

Came in for a conference, everyone else was at the large hotel, which was very nice, but it just could not compare. This was actually true for folks that were in other local B&B's too. They would say, "you have a 4th story tower with a view of the harbor?" Yes. "This is a picture of your breakfast?" in the... More

The property and rooms are beautifully maintained; it's a very comfortable place to stay in a great location. We parked our car and never needed it again the whole time we stayed. the innkeepers are over the top accommodating. From leaving out snacks (including fruit, homemade snacks, etc), and beverages (everything from water to soft drinks to beer to brandy)... More

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
