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.

We have been to newport, ri 5-6 times and the Samuel Durfee house was our first b&b there last November. It was a five star stay in the pre renovation Doris Duke room. Everything was very well maintained and we enjoyed 2 amazing breakfasts. We found Michael and Heather to be pleasant, helpful, and not too intrusive. This year we... More

Heather was very helpful in recommending places to go and places to eat keeping in mind what we were looking for. Breakfasts were delicious. It was also wonderful to come back to the room in the late... More

Michael and Heather made us feel very welcome with nice extras such as tea available almost anytime and the coffee and cookies in the afternoon, on our return from walking miles and viewing the 'Mansions' was a life saver.

We just returned from a lovely stay at the Samuel Durfee House and miss it already! This was our first visit to Newport-but hopefully will not be the last and when we return we know exactly where we shall return to.

This hotel is in the center of Newport. You can walk to the cliff walk or to the harbor from the hotel and the shopping is one block away. It is centrally located and... More
