I decided to take my husband to Newport to celebrate his 75th birthday and wanted a place that was special. I definitely made the right choice! The Sarah Kendall House is the perfect B&B! It is right across the street from the water in a mostly residential area that is home to many original, fully restored colonial and revolutionary houses.... More

I've just returned from a wonderful stay at the Sarah Kendall House. Though this is my first review, I've been there four or five times and have always had a great experience! Everything about the B&B is special: It's a beautiful and immaculately maintained large Victorian house. The rooms are lovely, with high ceilings, gas fireplaces, large windows, and all... More

We enjoyed our weekend stay at the Sarah Kendall House. The room was quite nice and we liked the separate entrance up to the tower. Staying at a bed and breakfast typically comes at a cost of some privacy and intrusiveness though the benefit of having a fireplace in the room and a bit larger space than at some hotels... More

We stayed three nights for our 15th anniversary during the awful winter of 2014/15. We had the place to ourselves, since other guests chickened out due to weather. Fran and Bryan treated us like royalty (I won't share some of the ways they went out of their way for us, so nobody gets any unrealistic expectations), and we had no... More

My husband and I enjoyed this bed and breakfast stay in Newport, and agree that the house and our accommodations, and the location out of the mainstream, but still close by to all Newport attractions were excellent. The owner was also very friendly and knowledgeable about Newport, and the breakfast provided was superb. The one thing that affected our total... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over a winter holiday weekend. Despite record-breaking snow and wind, we were able to enjoy wonderful dinners within close walking distance of the house and the consummate hospitality of our knowledgeable and friendly hosts who went above and beyond to make sure sidewalks were cleared and that we had everything we needed. Our room (tower... More

My husband and I spent three cozy days at this lovely old home. It has been spectacularly restored with lots of TLC and attention to detail by its owners, Fran And Bryan. We stayed on the second floor in a very spacious suite which had its own fireplace sitting area, mini fridge, and bathroom large enough for any diva. The... More

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
