I was in Newport for a couple of days midweek in January - very happy to find that, even though I was the only guest, the house was all lit up, fires in the fireplace, and a very friendly welcome from the host Brian. The room was beautiful, the location convenient, and the breakfast magnificent. History buffs will have plenty... More

The Sarah Kendall house is a beautifully restored Victorian house, inside and out. Our gracious hosts went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and relaxing and welcomed us with a glass of wine and fresh baked cookies. Our room was exceptionally clean with period furnishings that included the most comfortable king size bed I have ever slept on.... More

Got away last minute, kids had sleep over and Fran had a room. It was fabulous to sit and do nothing but enjoy the ocean view, read and had a nice glass of wine in the living room chatting with Bryan. Breakfast was good, now back to reality….

We loved our stay at the Sarah Kendal house. We found it very clean and cozy. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Out breakfasts each morning were great. Loved the fresh bagels! The tower view is amazing. Very close to shops and dining. So convenient. Great place to stay.

I'm not into writing reviews about anything...unless my experience was truly awful or truly fantastic. I stay at various bed and breakfast over the years, some because of their parking, some because of their location, some because of their breakfast or some because of their price, lets be honest all those things matter to most of us. I will honestly... More

We chose the Sarah Kendall House to celebrate a special birthday for both of us and to see Newport at Christmas. The Garden Room is beautiful and cozy even in winter. The property, decorated for Christmas, was warm and friendly with fireplaces in the living room and bedroom. The view from the tower is excellent. Bryan has so much knowledge... More

Very nice ,the room was clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The house was filled incredible antiques and old photos. I only wish I could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in Newport.

Booked a long weekend at the Sara Kendall to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. From the moment we entered and were greeted by Bryan, we knew we had made a great choice. The house is decorated with period appropriate furnishings and the collection of antiques is amazing. Breakfast each morning started with fresh fruit, bagels and a daily special. Each of... More
