We loved our stay in the Harrison Suite at Samuel Durfee House during our recent trip to Newport. This was not only our first trip to Newport, but was also our first experience in a bed and breakfast. Heather and Michael were excellent hosts. Each day we learned a little more about Newport and about Heather and Michael personally. The... More

Our stay in the Doris Duke Suite was just perfect! It has a bedroom, a living room with a sofa bed, and two bathrooms - perfect for two single people traveling together. We enjoyed having a private deck where we could relax after a day of seeing the sights. The private small refrigerator was also an added bonus. Heather and... More

We had a great stay at the Samuel Durfee House during a recent trip to Newport. Heather and Michael were extremely accommodating and made our stay easy. Our room, the Samuel Durfee room, was large and comfortable, and the bed was great. Breakfast every morning was huge and always delicious with a mix of homemade baked goods, fruit, and typically...

We loved our stay at the Samuel Durfee House in Newport. We stayed in the Samuel Durfee Room on the front of the house and were greeted by a wonderful view down the street towards the harbor. The hosts are wonderful and provided great information on places to eat and things to do. The delicious breakfasts were prepared fresh each... More

My husband and I stayed in the Samuel Durfee House for 2 nights. We just loved it. Heather and Michael make the old house feel very cozy and yet they have provided all the new items you may be looking for. We had a TV (not that we had time to watch it because of all there is to do... More

We enjoyed our one night stay so much at the Samuel Durfee House the first week of May. There was ample parking in the back with the entrance being the historic colonial front door. We were warmly greeted by owner Heather and were given a tour of the common rooms and of our suite on the first floor. There is... More

Our first B & B. What a delightful experience! We spent two nights and enjoyed every moment of our stay. Heather and Michael are marvelous hosts. They made us feel so very much "at home." They really extend themselves to make sure you are completely happy while at Samuel Durfee House. Heather seems to have a "knack" at being there... More

Just got back from a 3 day long weekend stay at the Samuel Durfee House with a total of 5 couples. We occupied all of the rooms and from the moment that we arrived, we were treated like family. The house is historical but is loaded with all of the modern convienences. It is decorated warmly and comfortably in the... More

We stayed two nights here, in the Harrison suite, where we found the extra sitting area well worth the small premium over other rooms. It would be even nicer in spring or summer weather when you could take advantage of the associated private patio. The room had everything we needed, although lack of surface to put things on in the... More

Michael and Heather are great innkeepers. They have been at it for a long time. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious! This inn is on a quiet section of Spring St. but still walking distance to the downtown area. There is off street parking as well. We hope to stay here again.
