We were happy with our stay at Samuel Durfee House. The rooms are very quiet and peaceful, and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts were gracious, without being overbearing. Also, the location can't be beat, with easy walking to all the Thames Street restaurants, bars, and shops. And the on site parking is a convenience not to be taken... More

We stay at the Durfee house every time we getaway to Newport. A short 60 min drive from Connecticut. We always book the Harrison Suite as its on the first floor with access to a private patio. Centrally located to the attractions of Newport you can park your car and walk. The inn keepers Heather and Michael are great hosts... More

We stayed at Samuel Durfee over the 4th of July holiday. We were very pleased. The room and bath were very clean, bed was comfortable, and the room had plenty of space. It was great to have off street parking right in the middle of Newport. Breakfasts were plentiful if not necessarily healthy - lots of baked goods, waffles, French... More

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 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
