What a wonderful place! The hosts were incredibly welcoming and truly lovely people. They helped to carry our bags and even called after we left to make sure I got a dress I had left in the room by mistake. Nothing bad to complain about - exactly what I was looking for with great hospitality and a quaint historic B&B!

We planned a last minute two night getaway to Newport. Our hosts greeted is on arrival and quickly checked us in, showed us a map highlighting some points of interest and recommended restaurants. Our room was large with a comfy king sized bed and a private bathroom. Decorated in the time period with lots of knick knacks. Air conditioning worked... More

We can't say enough of nice things about this B&B. Our room was charming, very spacious, clean, comfortable with lots of seating areas and all around beautiful. Donna and Rich were beyond hospitable. We had a few unfortunate incidents (flat tires, bad fall) and they really went above and beyond with their assistance in everything. Wifi worked well and was... More

Donna and Richard couldn't have been more kind. I was planning an overnight stay in Newport and they were most accommodating. They were very helpful in highlighting all Newport has to offer and answered any or all of my questions. Unfortunately, we had to cancel, but are looking forward to staying there in the future!

The owners were extremely hospitable and welcoming. They took us in after a computer glitch at another bed and breakfast. I highly recommend staying here during your visit to Newport. Excellent location, within walking distance to restaurants, shops and bars.

I have not been to Newport in a few years and I was shocked to see some of the hotel prices there. Granted I was looking for a Saturday night stay in July but the hotel rates still seemed excessive. I decided to look at Bed and Breakfast properties as an alternative. This was a one night get-away with a... More

We stayed two nights here during a hot week in July 2015. We were fortunate to have one of the largest rooms (maybe the largest?), with a king size bed and our own bathroom. (Some rooms share baths.) The room was charming, with lots of space and attractive decorations. Although it was quite hot and the room had only a... More

I'm going with 4 stars cuz the owners were so nice and would be very helpful if I didn't know most of what I needed for Newport. The location is excellent, the rate was decent, the place is cute, good wi-fi. 5 min walk into town, 1 minute to Bellevue Ave. and 12-15 walk to the beach. But the bed... More

Thanks for the helpful review Joanie.

We pulled into Newport and went to our inn to find they did not have the reservation I had made in December. Panic set in. It was 1:00 and we had a wedding at 4:00. The owner helped find a new room for us and we lucked out finding a spot at The Historic Hill Inn. Just by chance they... More
