We stayed at the Sara Kendall House which was absolutely stunning. The views of the bay were fantastic. The owners Bryan and Fran were so... More

Very impressive. Thank-you Bryan and Fran. Breakfast was the best! Enjoyed just sitting around sipping brandy and looking through the books and pictures of the house and Newport. We went "house shopping" on Bellevue Ave visited the Marble House and The Breakers. Will be back for more!

As first time visitors to Newport RI, we chose the Sarah Kendall House by chance. What a wonderful surprise it turned out to be. This B&B has a terrific location with spectacular views of the harbor and light house. It sits on a quiet street with just a short walk to town. While on that short walk to town you... More

The inn is situated on Washington St., with the porch looking out on the sunset and water. Very charming Inn located a few minutes from downtown Newport. Quiet, historic neighborhood. The proprietors are interesting people. The rooms are not cheap but the place is "top notch" and worth the price. Plenty to eat at breakfast! If we return to Newport... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sarah Kendall House in Newport this past weekend as a "mini-moon" after our wedding. I can't say enough about the trip and our experience at this Bed and Breakfast. The owners, Bryan and Fran, weren't only professional and courteous, but they were more than willing to teach us about the history of the... More

Stayed overnight at Sarah Kendall House. Well appointed inside, enjoyed the garden outside. Stayed in large room w/balcony. Found bed comfortable and room was quiet. Innkeepers gave great reference to local restaurant. About 10 min walk to harbor area downtown. There is parking off street. Would recommend.

This B&B is a true gem. The view, the house, the food, the hospitality and location, location location (did I say location?...) are some of the few things that make this B&B the BEST in the state. Thank you Fran and Brian, you made our weekend a special one. Sara & George

A lovely old home restored to perfection inside and out with comfy furniture for all and close to shops, excellent restaurants and historic buildings! Breakfast was elegantly served by owner with excellent and abundant food! And, the beds were so comfortable!

The Sarah Kendall House is a Victorian-era Bed and Breakfast tucked away in historic Newport RI. The rooms are beyond elegant... the food is always fresh and prepared to perfection... the atmosphere is welcoming and peaceful. Cleanliness is a hallmark of the beautiful and stately home that comes to life thanks to efforts of its owners, Fran and Bryan Babcock... More

Not the first time we've stayed at this beautiful B&B. If it's a nice place, of course, who wouldn't come back! We stayed in the Tower Suite this trip. Lots of stairs to the room with the best view of the beautiful Bay! I sat for almost an hour in a chair just looking out the window as the sun... More
