My husband and I stayed at the Samuel Durfee House for a few days last month. This was our first vacation without the kids so we were really looking forward to some peace and quiet and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Each day's breakfast was delicious, our room was clean and comfortable, and Michael and Heather... More

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. Heather and Michael are wonderful hosts –and very accommodating without being intrusive. The rooms were very generously sized, lovely,... More

Our stay was wonderful. Good food, convenient to downtown sights and Michael and Heather were welcoming. The breakfast was excellent. The food was fresh and homemade. 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

I recently stayed at the Samuel Durfee House during an extended weekend in Newport. This was my first time staying at in inn, as I normally prefer to stay at hotels. However, staying at the Samuel Durfee House was a great decision. The inn keepers, Michael and Heather, were incredibly gracious, warm, and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms...

We had a wonderful stay. The staff and accommodations were excellent. The Inn keepers were very friendly and helpful, offering and giving a helping hand whenever possible. I would send anyone there and we would love to stay there again!

Stayed at the Samuel Durfee house now 4 or 5 times...we've lost track. Once again our hosts and accommodations were the reason Newport RI has become our "go to" destination for long weekends and extended stays away from home (NJ). Yes, the rooms, breakfast, location and hosts are terrific and we would not consider any other B&B. The town is... More

From booking to departure our experience could hardly have been better. I won't reiterate the superlatives of other reviewers (location, parking, cleanliness, breakfasts) except to say that Heather and Michael seem to have truly found their calling as hosts and convey a welcome seldom found anywhere else. We stayed in the second floor Ida Lewis Room. It has a private... More

My wife and I used this as a night to escape the kids in Newport. We could not be happier with our experience. Michael and Heather clearly know what they're doing when it comes to running a bed and breakfast! The location is perfect for downtown Newport, restaurants, visiting the mansions, etc. There is a private parking area for guests,... More
