Here is my guestbook account from Friday 9/25/15: Dear Noreen, The sunset on the patio last night was magnificent, to die. I went to get more direct sunlight for my online book group but what a surprise! The sun setting over the pond was an unexpected delight, and we could see the bay out past the pond. I'm just so...

Thank you so much for such a lovely review you two, or should I say you three. :) Merle certainly looks comfortable lounging with Harry. You did a wonderful job describing Murray House and areas of Newport. We are glad you came. Especially me! Cheers, Noreen More

We recently spent 4 nights at Murray House in the Pond View suite. What a wonderful experience! It is a lovely place, so well cared for in both the suite and the surrounding property. Our beagle was with us and was right at home with the accommodations. She especially enjoyed a treat package prepared by our host!!! We were comfortable,... More

I absolutely loved this place! Stayed from Friday until Monday October 2015. Even before we arrived, the manager Noreen was in constant contact with us, making sure we would be accommodated for whatever time we arrived (NJ to RI on a Friday is crazy at best!). We received explicit instructions, with pictures, as to how to check in. And Noreen... More

Myself, husband, one year old daughter, sister and sister's boyfriend spent the weekend at The Murray House. We were visiting for a wedding, but stayed a few extra days to make a trip out of it. When planning the trip, I dealt with Noreen. She runs the B&B. She was extremely helpful in guiding me along the booking process as... More

We had a wonderful time at Murray House over Columbus Day weekend! The water view mini suite is across the street from the B&B, and offers lots of privacy. We loved being able to prepare food in the little kitchen corner, and eat on the balcony overlooking the water. The sweet was clean and cleverly laid out, and decorated in... More

A perfectly charming place to stay. Very clean, very well looked after. We were made to feel very welcome, and our two small Yorkies also. Located far enough away from all the hustle and bustle, but close enough to enjoy all that Newport has to offer. Noreen was the perfect hostess, and emailed us all kinds of information prior to...

This bnb was perfect for our first visit to Newport! Noreen was a great host who provided us with information about the area, and the place itself was great! It was located within easy walking distance to 2 beaches (and a short drive to town), and the pool/hot tub were great for us to relax after a long day. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Murray House in Newport, RI. Lovely room with private patio and garden and a nice location in a quiet area near beach and Cliff Walk but away from the tourist hustle and bustle on Thames Street... Delicious breakfast brought each morning to our private patio and added bonus of a cool swim... More

Great place to enjoy everything that Newport has to offer and bring your dogs too. Noreen sent us all kinds of information upon booking and we were able to plan our visit accordingly. We had a fenced in porch where my husband, myself and our 2 dogs were able to sit, relax and enjoy the beautiful gardens. We can't wait... More

4 of us had 5 nights as 'guests' of Noreen at Murray House and that's exactly how we felt. From the initial booking to our wave good bye, Noreen was attentive to our every need without being intrusive. The B&B is situated under 5 mins walk from the beach and 2 mins from the trolley bus stop. The Newport Mansions... More
